I am not sure about that brand but on my Roland Speakers, the TRS jack lives inside the XLR. I first missed it. Take an XLR and try to connect. I can't imagine that they would not have XLR especially for studio monitors. Also are your speakers passive or active, that is something that I would seriously at. No amplitude, low signal, no active.

How to connect mg06x to reciver

See the attached image for a 1/4" TRS balanced output from the mixer Stereo Out to unbalanced input at the receiver (I assume the receiver has RCA connections). You'll need two of these - 1 left and 1 right. Make sure to turn the mixer down, then raise the mixer level gradually, because the mixer's professional output level is a bit higher than the consumer level normally seen at the receiver input.connect-mg06x-reciver#solution-section-swe4i451sy1ijpnabilugu1j-3-0.png

Connecting compressor and equalizer to pmp5000

Use a two channel INSERT SNAKE. Plug the TRS connector for each channel into the INSERT jack for the mains in the area above the effects unit. Plug the TIP of each channel of the snake into the input of your effects unit and the RING plug into the output of your effects. The snake has ONE TRS connector and TWO TS connectors per channel.

The mixer has xlr main output x2 and jack unbalanced output x 2 can i connect 4 amps using this

The output jacks are PSUEDO balanced so use TRS cables and you should be able to drive two amps from each with no problem either as a WYE or daisy chained connection. The PSUEDO balanced connections do NOT drive differential voltages, but tie the return to ground through a 120 ohm resistor. It is imperative that you power ALL the amps and the mixer from the SAME receptacle or power conditioner. If you don't do this, expect lots of hum and risk of ground bounce damage to your equipment. Run extension cord if you need to.

How do I connect my samson amp to my samson MDR10 mixer?

on the mixxer, use the "mix" "L" and "R" outputs. use 1/4 inch instrument cables, and connect the mox L and R to the amp's "channel 1" and "channel 2 inputs". always turn the mixing board on first, and the amp second- when turning off turn off the amp first, and turn off the mixer second. start with the mixer levels at the lowest, with the amp levels about 1/2 to 3/4 up. slowly raise the mixer channels first and then the mixer main volume until you have an adequate volume.

How do I properly use main inserts? I want ot run a stereo comp and a pair of eqs in line going out of the main insert section. I want to comp and eq overall mix. Thanx

You need to make special cables. The inserts send and receive via the TRS connectors. You will connect to the preamp output of the insert plug which is the "RING" of the jack sending that signal first to your comp and from there to your EQ and then back into the insert plug on the "TIP" of the TRS plug.

I have four active and two passive speakers how do i hook up to amp

Assuming they are ALL mains and not for monitors connect this way:

Connect the passive to the A and B powered outputs. Please read my tip on Fixya regarding hazard of grounding speaker leads on channel A of PMP mixers.

Connect each pair of active speakers to the Main L and R 1/4 inch jacks using TRS balanced cables. Power these speakers from the SAME receptacle or source, even if it means running an extension cord to your mixer from where the actives are plugged in. FAILURE to do this creates a hazard of ground loops and ground bounce that can damage equipment. The Main L and R 1/4 inch jackls can drive more than one active speaker... these are line level signals. Make sure to use TRS balanced cables for this.

Intermittant LR output problems Main outputs (XLR

Intermittent problems cn be a real pain to find... BUT I want you to verify your use of the mixer and its connections as one can cause the output drivers to latch up due to ground bounce.

Make sure your outputs go to the power amps AND into balanced inout at the amps... either XLR or TRS connectors.

Make sure that the amps are POWERED from the same receptacle as the mixer... even if you have to run power back to the mixer. If you power the mixer from a different receptacle at the other end of the room, ground bounce of the safety ground MAY exceed the common mode drive of the mixer and cause the output drivers to latch up or even be destroyed!!!

No sound

Your power amp should be connected to MAIN OUT left and right. NOT the MAIN "in".

The CD is connected correctely as you described. Make sure the CD has a line level output to match the input expected by the mixer.
Note:Walkman style CD players require a special cable to go between 1/8 inch stereo to dual RCA plugs.

You have to advance the MAIN fader.

You should be using TRS interconnect cables from the mixer to your amps OR using XLR cables.
