SOURCE: How do i connect 2 monitors to the one monitor

The monitors will have to be POWERED monitors with built in amps.

You can simply use a wye splitter cable to drive the two monitors. Run the cable from the mixer to one monitor and put a wye cable and an extention to the second powered monitor speaker.

SOURCE: what is the best suited power amp for the Peavey

that depends on your speakers, not the mixer. the amp should be matched to the speakers, in watts and in ohmage. for example, 400 watt, 8 ohm speakers should get an amp that runs at 350-500 watts at 8 ohms.

SOURCE: can i connect the pv 112 to the pv 118 subwoofer

Generally speaking you should only send low frequencies to subs. The highs, while lower in power than the lows, will over time harm the voice coils. The ideal way to do this is to use an external crossover netween the main output and the amp input with the higher range going to a general set of speakers. Send the lows through the second channel of the amp and then to the subs.

In short, while not recommended, yes you can hook them up in parallel.

SOURCE: I Have a Peavey

First off it's outputs to your speakers. If you had an extra set of powered or amplified speakers you could "Y" cable your speaker outputs. Your passive speakers won't work without an amp. You really need powered speakers or an amp for your extra speakers. (if you had powered/amp'd speakers you could run them off one of you "aux" out for monitors. Do not daisy chain your speakers connecting twi together, you'll change the resistance/ohms and damage your speakers. Trust me, I do this for a living.

First of all confirm if the speaker impedance is not lower then the recommended Ohms at the back of the Mixer speaker socket.You can use an 8 Ohms speaker on a 4 Ohms amplifier but not vise versa .
Next see if the fan on the mixer works. If not the Amp is getting very hot and this will lead to unwanted distortion. You can confirm if its a heat related issue by playing the mixer at low volumes for more than an hour and see if it distorts.

What amp setting do you use when you have two passive monitors 1 ea on amp 1 and 1 ea on amp 2?


You have two monitor outputs, each controlled by a fader. Plug the amp(s) you will be using to power the monitors into these, connect the monitor speakers to the amp(s) and you're set up and ready

Shud i get an external equaliser? i'm using MG166CX 16-Channel Mixer as the main mixer.


An external equalizer will not help this at all. The problem is likely within the amp (feeding the main speakers), the connections from the board to the amp, or the speakers themselves. In other words, the answer would be "NO." Best of luck!

The unit has a built in mixer as well as individual outputs. You would need an amplifier/speaker that could receive from teh mixed output jack of this. Use BALANCED TRS cable.

Will a Behringer UB2442fx-PRO run 2 main PA speakers plus two passive stage monitors without blowing up?


ALL the speakers will either have to be POWERED or have external amplifiers. The mixer has NO power amps capable of driving speakers. When connecting, make sure that the mixer is powered by the same receptacle as the speakers or amps. Used balanced line for interconnection.

I have a 1680S. How do I hook up my in-ear monitor? I plan to run two house speakers but no floor monitors. Thanks,


DO NOT connect your in-ear monitors to the power amp out using the MAIN/Mon speaker option as it would be goodbye hearing and fried ear buds..
Get a very small and in-expensive headphone amp and connect its input to the 1/4 inch Monitor output jack.

You didn't mention what brand powered mixer you have, HOWEVER MOST powered mixers also have a line level monitor and main output jacks. These are almost always 1/4 inch jacks. In any case you should be using BALANCED lines to the powered speakers using either XLR or TRS connectors on the ends. Please tell us what powered mixer you have so we can give you better answer regarding which connections to use. IF for some reason your mixer does NOT have line level outputs, you can use a high level Direct Box to condition the powered outputs to be sent to the powered speakers..
Also make sure ALL your interconnected equipment is powered by the same receptacle or source to avoid damaging due to ground bounce on utility lines and circuits. This often means running an extension cord from the stage where the powered speakers are along with a snake of the audio cables.

You haven't mentioned what model and manufacturer the mixer is. I will have to guess and say that the monitor out on the board isn't providing signal to the powered monitor or the monitor out on your board is powered and is now damaged by plugging a powered monitor into it. Carefully reread your manual and determine if the monitor out on your mixer is powered or line level. Reread also and make sure that the signal you are monitoring is assigned to monitor out, levelled correctly etc. If you find that the monitor out is passive (line level) try hooking it up to an external power amp and speaker. A guitar amp will do for testing purposes. Start with a low input volume on the amp. Also make sure that if it is passive to use a shielded cable from monitor out to input. If your board has powered monitor outs you can use a speaker cable from monitor out to speaker input (non powered monitor speaker).

Hello, What is the proper way to connect an Ashly XR1000 Crossover and a Pyle Pro PTA1400 power amp to my Peavey XR8600 so I can use 2 subs? The subs are not powered, but do have a passive crossover...


Here is a link to the manual:http://www.peavey.com/assets/literature/manuals/00513220_7.pdf I didn't look at the manual for the crossover but this is probably the way I would do it. Look at page 13 in the manual : Come out of the Main out (31 in the diagram) into the main in of your crossover. Go out of your crossover Hi and Mid out setting back into Power amp In 1 (labelled 32 in the diagram). Hook your speakers that you normally use to the output jacks on the back of the Peavey. Make sure you match the output impedances. Go out of your crossover low output into the Pyle power amp and out of the Pyle into your subs. Make sure the impedance ratings of all your speakers match the output impedances of your amps. You will only be running in Mono mode as that is the signal output of the Peavey mixer. You can run faux stereo by using the Main monitor Out as 1/2 the pair and the Main Out as the other 1/2 to both channels of the crossover but you won't be getting a true stereo pan mode.
