That light is showing that there is power to amp in that speaker but there is something wrong with the amp or the speaker inside and nothing is coming out. You will have to troubleshoot the amp and check the resistance of the speaker to see what the problem is.

HOW TO WIRE GEMINI GRAPHIC EQ 3000 TO behringer djx750 proffessional MIXER


Line level output of the mixer would go into the line level inputs of the EQ, and the EQ line level outpputs to the line level inputs of the amplifier. If you are faced with a mix of unbalanced inputs or outputs, to balanced inputs or outputs it gets a little complicated because you need to matrix the balanced signal to unbalanced load and vice versa. There is no single answer to doing this either.

RCA jacks are unbalanced, 2 conductor 1/4 inch connections are unbalanced most of the time. XLR and 3 conductor 1/4 inch jacks and plugs can be either balanced or unbalanced.If either are wired so left and right are a single ring or tip on the 3 conductor 1/4 inch jack, it is unbalanced and they would share a common ground lead. XLR wired with one pin common with shield and right and left have a single conductor on the plug or jack, that is unbalanced.

Getting distorted sound when connecting from mac pc headphone jack to 1/4" line in input


You are connecting a NOISY unbalnced line to a balanced input. Buy a DI box and then use an XLR to XLR to the mixer inout and run the MAC into the DI with "ground lifted". You will need to make a resistive mixer between the headphone jack and the DI as well. The headphone jack is STEREO. You COULD try a STEREO 1/8 inch splitter to 1/4 inch left and right cable... you MIGHT get away with that. Right now the left and right amps in the MAC are fighting eachother.

I have a Behringer PMP 6000 powered mixer. Channels 4 & 5 yellow overload light is constantly lit. No sound from either channel (just a faint hum when volume slider approaches max level...


There are NO "yellow" overload LED's period. The clip or overload RED LED's are just above the PFL buttons for selecting a solo channel. There are "yellow" signal received lights (level set) up near the trim controls. In normal operation these will light when signal is received. Here is schematic for the PMP5000 which is really identical for the 6000.
http://elektrotanya.com/behringer_europower-p0569_hca2400_sps1000_dpx_pmp-1280s_5000_sch.pdf/download.html This has part of the DSP and PS and the PA circuits.
Scroll down to "get manual" and click on it to download. Ignore other download links on the page.
Try turning off the Phantom power if it might be on... If that stops the hum, something is the matter with the bypasses feeding Phantom power to those channels... Possible problem might be shorting of one of the coupling caps at the preamp input. The PMH5000 drawings are more accurate at the input circuits. You will note that the level set LED's are the yellows, and the clip/PFL LED's are the red ones. I suspect that RF bypass caps such as C110 or C121 (example typical for channel one) might be shorted. This makes noise on the Phantom power line unbalanced and will get into the channel where one of these caps is shorted. Do a test: Plug a shorting jack that shorts the tip to the sleeve intot he inssert for the channel. With the LOW CUT button up, observe is the level set LED for that channel dims or goes out. If it does, then I supect you have a shorted RF bypass cap at the input..The next test involves driving a KNOWN balanced signal into the XLR jack and using a TRS in tthe inout 1/4 inch, test the levels with an oscilloscope to verify the hot and the return have equal amplitudes. I they don't, congratualtions you have to tear the main board out... lots of knobs and screws to access the inout circuits and verifuy the cause... it could ALSO be a bad transistor in the inout pair, etc...

The missing nut is not likely to kill the channel. You just bought this so exercise your warranty... unless it is used in which case you bought someone else's problem. Somebody probably blew out the channel by zapping it with high voltage that destroyed the input circuit of the channel. Often there are bypass capcitors right at the input which short out. If this is boiught used, take to a repair shop and if new, exercise your warranty. I suspect they removed the nut from the connector to mark the dead channel.

How do you use the mixer with a regular combo amp and stereo mic cable?


This is not hard to do, but it will require some adapters. Hosa company makes adapters to accomplish this. For example, if your Stereo mic has "1/4 inch male phone plugs" Hosa makes and adapter that has 1/4 inch female plug to Male XLR connectors. The Mackie, and just about every mixer in the world these days has Female XLR connectors for it's microphone inputs. So that will handle tha.

I'm not sure what you mean by the "combo" amp. If it has XLR inputs you can use Tip Ring Sleve male output jacks to the output. If your amp as conventional 1/4 inch female input jacks. Than a simple
1/4 inch Male to Male Guitar Cable will work fine. DON'T USE A SPEAKER CABLE as it is uninsulated and you will get 60Hz hum.
I hope this helps,
That looks like a great quality mixer you have!
Happy New Year,
Mark

I have two xlr combo inputs which have phantom power. Channel two works as new since I've hardly used it, but channel one which I've used quite a lot has hardly any gain when I use the condenser mic with...


This sounds bad... I suspect that a noise suppression cap on one side of the bad channel has shorted... possibly due to a static discharge.
Test for this doing this: Using a meter, with nothing plugged in and phantom on, check the voltage at both pins 2 and 3 to pin 1 of the XLR connectors. If you find either pin 2 or 3 is much lower than its mate (they both should be 15 volts to 48 volts positive), then one side noise filter cap probably has shorted. Unless you are electronically adept at repair, take it in for servicing.

How to connect mixer to a crown power base 2 amp and speakers


just use the main left and right outputs of the behringer to run xlr (3 prong balanced) to 1/4 inch (looks like a big headphone plug) cables into the inputs of the crown amp. the mixer has the xlr outputs and the amp has 1/4 inch inputrs, sop the cables will have to reflect that on both ends. run the outputs of the amp (rca outputs, i believe, you may have to get a rca plug to 1/4 inch jack adapter, and then use a 1/4 inch speaker cable) to the inputs of the speakers, again, the amp has rca outputs and the speakers will likely have 1/4 inputs, so you will have to address that wil an adapter. have each speaker in its own channel.

How can I connect my mackie mixer 1202-vlz3 to my mac mini


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.

My mic output is very weak. Music comes out great. I have to set the levels all the way up to get any mic sound and usually there is a lot of clipping. You need to almost scream to get any sound with a...


Thiis amp has plenty of gain for mics. Make sure your mic has a good XLR to XLR cable (balanced) and connects to the XLR input connectors. If you have 1/4 inch jack cables that aren't TRS balanced on the mics, get rid of them and get XLR's.

Then push the PFL button down (LED will light red) for a single channel with a mic and adjust the trim (top knob for the channel) so that the level peaks without clipping on the main LED display when highest input to the mic is being generated. You should not get clipping then during operation.

After that you use the slider tio adjust the level for the mic. The MAIN slider should be at least up around -10 to zero during operation. If your main slider is way down, then you haven't balanced your channels properly. Do the same for each channel as the instructions for the mic above. If the gains of the other inputs are too high and the MAIN slider too low, this is what is causing your problem.

Typically the trims for mics like Shure 58 are about 3 o'clock.

High level guitars may have trims anywhere from 9 to 3 o'clock.

Ideally you will want your channel sliders to be between -10 and zero.
