What you need will depend on what you are doing with it (what sort of venues and how you are making music - what sort of band/solo with backing track etc.) You will need a monitor with an amp or a powered monitor. The key thing is that you'll be able to hear the monitor mix over the rest of the PA. If you are just putting vocals through it you would possibly be best with a 12" but otherwise go for a full range unit with 15" and horn. Power wise I would suggest you need something capable of generating at LEAST 125dB unless you are in a quiet acoustic set. The SPL from the monitor is much more important than the power since power has little bearing on SPL.

Our Behringer pmp 6000 just recently mysteriously lost both monitor 1 & 2 signals. Please provide some suggested resolutions? Is there anything other then the channel monitor level knobs and the main...


Try plugging in a set of headphones into each of the mon left and right. If the monitor sliders are up AND the channel monitor knobs are up you should be able to hear in ONE SIDE only of the headphones. If not, then you may have failed to power your monitor amp or speakers from the SAME receptacle as the mixer and this can result in ground bouncein building wiring that will blow out the driver chips for the mon signals.

We set up the monitors in our pmp 6000 at the mon send jacks but we didn't get any sound from it when we turned up the monitor volumes. What is the proper way to set them up?


I HOPE you know that the monitor send jacks are NOT powered. You MUST use either powered monitors or an external amp for these to drive speakers. Assuming you have done that, you have to turn up one or both of the monitor knobs for each channel you wish to send to the monitors at the desired level. Then you advance the monitor faders for the overall monitor level.

How can a PMP 2000 be patched so that both internal amps are used to power the monitors, and the mains are sent from the mainpre-out to another power amp, while using one internal eq for the mains, and the...


No you can't quite do this since the EQ's are right before the power amps in the signal flow. The monitor output would drive two 8 ohm speakers daisy chained at roughly 300 watts RMS... I can't imagine needing more than that for a venue that is within the capabilities of this unit.
You can drive both power amps by the monitor output by setting the mon/main function on the switch and using a short TRS cable jumper between MONITOR PREAMP OUT and the RIGHT POWER AMP INPUT jack. Drive your mains from the LEFT PREAMP OUT. The EQ's will ONLY affect the monitors. Use an external EQ if you need to EQ the mains with this connnection. Use TRS balanced cables to the main amp and CONNECT all interconnected equipment to the SAME power source or receptacle, even if it means running an extension to the mixer.

Where (on-line) can we find download for advanced manual for Behringer PMP 4000 16 channel powered mixer? What we found on-line was the exact manual that came with the mixer.


There really ISN'T and "advanced" manual... Everything you need to know is in the user manual that comes with it... Service manual with schematics will not give you much you can use unless you are into electronics detail.

PLEASE read my tip about Behringer PMP mixers on here regarding a hazard if you use Speakon to 1/4 inch cables or adapters. Essentially, the sleeve, NOT the tip is the HOT lead for a speaker on channel A. Ground it inadvertently and goodbye channel A amp.

Be VERY careful of speaker leads with this amp as it is easy to pop a channel IF a speaker comes loose or shorts. Loop cables through the handlesto avoid cables being yanked out or breaking plugs.

What is the best powered mixer to go with my b215xl 1000watt speakers


The PMP 6000 or 4000 depending on how many channels and effects you need is a good match.

READ THE SPECS... the speakers are capable of 250 Watts RMS (not 1000 as that is PEAK) power... like the ridiculous claims of 4 Hp for shop vacuums that run on 120 volts.

The 4000 and 6000 will generate about 250 Watts per side into 8 ohm speakers so is well matched for the B215XL speakers... by matched we mean the speakers are not likely to get blown out.

Connect a 500 Watt per side amp to the speakers and you will be buying replacements in short order.

ALSO realize how much sound you will get from the speakers.. they will cover a 2000 square foot venue fairly well. I suggest you get a sound level meter so you have a metric of levels when you are using the system. If you need more sound, you can add a second set of the speakers in parallel.

When I hook up my passive mains and monitors in the mono1/mono mode....mains on B and Monitors on A outputs I don't seem to have much output volume on the mains.....my monitors are okay but main sliders...


Please read my tip on fixya regarding a HAZARD of PMP mixers when using Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables. Essentially, the barrel of the 1/4 inch on A channel is the "hot" and one had better never let it touch a grounded point.

Now to your problem...You may have to run the MAIN sliders near the unity setting (zero Db).

It is important to set the trims correctely. For each of the inout channels, push the PFL button for the channel down and set the trim control so LED display is just below the clipping point at maximum input for the channel.

Ideally you would like the channel sliders to be in the vicinity of unity gain when system is balanced. Running the sliders way down results in a poor signal to noise ratio. Next you adjust the channel monitor knobs to set the monitor mix. These should be about 12 o'clock if possible to get decent signal to noise ratio.

For the MON/Mon1 mode, do NOT use the "Surround" simulator OR the "Speaker processor" ... make sure those swithces are off. You will probably want to PAN the channels fully to the MAIN side "B" which MAY be the reason your level seems low.

Remember the individual channels are about 400 Watts and 600 peak. Frankly myself I prefer to use both MAIN channels to the main speakers and use an external amp for the monitors OR use powered monitors for monitor use.

The passive speakers connect to the main outputs using Speakon connectors on the back.

You will use Balanced connections (TRS) to the main L and R connections on top to the active speakers. Daisy chain 3 active on each of the L and R top connectors.

You can download a user manual if you don't have one.

ALSO PLEASE read my tip regarding a hazard when using Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables on channel "A" in the FIXYA tips for PMP mixers. The barrel of the channel A 1/4 inch is the HOT side of the signal to the speaker instead of the tip.

On my Berhinger pmp 5000 powered mixer the mic trim pots seem very touchy.There is almost nothing on them until they are almost at maximum at which point you get feedback issues.How can I check to see if...


When using the trim with mics such as SM58's, etc. the trims often wind up at about 3 o'clock in normal use. You set the trims by pressing the PFL buttons down and setting the level using the led display histogram so that at maximum level of talking/singing the display never goes clear up to clipping.
IF you have feedback, then you have issues of mic location and speaker location. The critical point of feedback is far too critical to set with the trim controls.
Your main speakers should be toward the audience from the mics, not so the mics can "hear" the main speakers.
Monitor speakers are ALWAYS a problem with feedback... performers want more monitor, but depending on the acoustics of a stage, reflection from the back can get into the mics or the mics may not be directional enough... SIngers that choose to hold the mic and wave it around are a soundman's nightmare! They let the mic point toward a monitor and away goes the feedback.
The PMP5000 has a lot of power.
While your at it, PLEASE read my tip on FIXYA about PMP mixers regarding the hazard of using Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables... ESSENTIALLY never allow the barrel of channel "A" output 1/4 inch to be grounded as it, instead of the tip of the jack is the HOT lead !!!! This isn't in the user manual... I fix these things and discovered this hazard from the schematics.

Please read a tip I just posted regarding a hazard of the Speakon to 1/4 inch cables when used with these PMP mixers.

If you are using your main speakers as stereo, then you will need either powered monitor speakers OR an additional seperate amp for them. The mon outputs on the mixer are LINE LEVEL and are not driven by a power amp. Use TRS (balanced) interconnect cables from these to POWERED monitor speakers.

You can parallel your two mains providing the parallel impedance is 4 ohms or greater (two 8 ohms in parallel at most). The the monitor speakers can be paralleled and the switch set to Main/Mon so that one side of the power amp drives the mains and the other drives the monitors.

To prevent damage to the mixer, make sure all speaker leads are secure before powering the system. Run the speaker leads through the handles of the speakers to prevent inadvertent unplugging due to personell tripping over cables.

DO NOT use the bridge mode in your use.
