You need a power amplifier between the mixer and the speakers to actually drive the speakers. You would have to choose which amp to use (the manual, found here: http://www.bose.ca/controller?url=/shop_online/speakers/stereo_speakers/acoustimass_5/index.jsp#manuals suggests between 10-200 WRMS for power), and thus would have to determine the cabling options depending on the amp you choose, but...go from either the MAIN or CONTROL ROOM outputs of the Mackie mixer into the inputs of the power amp. Then go from the outputs of the power amp to the inputs on the Acoustimass bass module, which also runs the Acoustimass satellite speakers.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have Berhinger 1680s powered

Thought I answered this. Using balanced TRS cables, connect the powered speakers to the Main L and R 1/4 inch jacks on the top of the unit.

SOURCE: How can I connect my mackie mixer 1202-vlz3 to my

use the xlr (3 prong) main left and right outputs of the board. get xlr to 1/4 inch cables. one end will be 3 prong, to plug into the mixer, then the other end will be a mono 1/4 inch plug, like a big headphone plug. Then you have to get a dual mono 1/4 inch to stereo 1/8 inch adapter and plug it noto the line in. if there is no lone in, but a microphone jack instead, you will get a mono signal instead of a stereo signal. in this case, just use 1 channel of the mixer, instead of both of the stereo outs, and use a single mono 1/4 inch to mono 1/8 inch adapter.

the xlr to 1/4 inch cables can be purchased at a music store. the 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adapters will probably need to be purchased at radio shack.

SOURCE: how to connect effects processor to mackie 1602

Should be an Aux 1 or 2 output jack on the right side of the mixer. You can come out of the 1 or 2 OUTPUT jack to the input on your processor, and then from the output of the processor to Effects return or to a channel input. By going to a channel input you can then blend the processor's signal with a slider into the sound system with the other channels, while adding tone if needed. By going back into the Effects return, you just blend it overall by adjusting the Effects return knob.
To feed the channels through the processor, turn the AUX 1 or 2 knob up on each individual channel you want to go through the processor. Make sure the AUX 1 (or 2 if you are using that) MASTER knob is turned up on the right side of the console, otherwise nothing will go to the processor. You should see the processors' input light showing signal, if not check your connections. Good luck

Hi my mackie thumps 100 watt aren't delivering a decent volume ,,I,m using mackie mixer please help


Is this a new problem? In other words, was it working correctly at some point?
You ned to isolate the problem. Plug a different source into the speakers and plug the mixer into a different amp/speaker. See which part isn't working correctly.. Either way, it's likely you need to take the part that's not working to the shop. You can contact Mackie to find the nearest service center. Service Locator Mackie

How can i get more volume on my onstage monitors thru my mackie 2404 vlz3 mixer or what is the proper way to connect the monitors


Without more information of your speakers and amps we can't really help you. The Mackie board puts out line-level signals and that should drive any connected amp or powered speaker to the full capability. Make sure you are using BALANCED interconnect lines either XLR or TRS cables. Use of TS unbalanced cables costs you 6 DB and also noise pickup. Make sure ALL your gear, amps, speakers etc are powered from a SINGLE receptacle or power conditioning module. Normally you will use the AUX outputs of the mixer by way of TRS cables or balanced lines in a snake to power amplifiers onstage which then connect to the stage monitors. If you have powered monitors the returns of the aux to the stage go to the powered monitors. A heavy duty extension cord brings power back from thee stage power to the mixer.

Just bought a ProFX8 mixer to connect to my Bose L1 PA system, but as soon as I connect the outputs to the Bose inputs and raise the master fader there is a "ground hum" even without anything...


Make sure you are using BALANCED audio interconnect cables AND that the speakers and the mixer are powered from the SAME receptacle... Yes, this means running extension cords. It is a ground loop problem. You should be using XLR or TRS cables BALANCED cables from the mixer to the basss unit of the L1 system. The bass unit and the mixer MUST be powered from the same receptacle to avoid ground loops and hum.

Make sure you are using BALANCED interconnection cables to the speakers, either XLR or TRS connections. ALSO make sure all interconnected equipment such as the speakers AND the mixer are powered from the SAME receptacle at the venue... yes you have to run extension cords... the pro's do it so they don't have hum and other noise and don't damage their equipment.

I have a mackie fx 8 mixer connected to two thump 15 " speakers. i want to add a set of base non- powered speakers with power amp to my fx 8. what are the connections?


Balanced audio interconnects (either XLR or TRS cables from the mixer and then balanced audio interconnects from the amp daisy chain inputs to the existing speaker inputs. If the amps do not have linked input jacks, then use TRS type WYE connectors at the inputs. Then use speaker rated cables from the amps to the passive speakers.

Hooking up powerd monitors to a Mackie 1604 VLZ3


Are you sending the main mix to the monitors or are you giving them their own mix? What about using the sub groups, use 1 for your monitor send.
