Question about Behringer POWERED MIXER, 20 CH, 400 WTS AMPLIFIER => Model PMX5000 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

180 watts mixer/amplifier and 400 watts speakers

I'm just wondering about my mixer/amplifier, because i have a band and we bought a 180 watts behringer europower pmp518m mixer amplifier with 5 channels and a 400watts peavey PR12 and all of the channels are occupied by the microphones(acually 4 microphones for 2 vocals, and 2 for the guitar and bass amplifier) and a keyboard. then the last time we performed, we done 3 songs then on the middle of our forth song, the mixer was automatically turned off.(but theres still a light on it) so we switch it off and on then it repeat again, i dont know what is happening to the mixer but i have an idea that maybe it was overload or maybe the mixer and the speaker are not compatible. pls can you help us fix this problem.thank you

Hiya, they are thermally or DC protecting. You will have to add some extra cooling if you can, external fan etc. Bottom line is you are going to have to crank it down a tad or increase amps and speakers. If its DC protection, its because the distortion levels are 2 high. Very easily achieved with mics not compressed. Again, try tone them down a tad.

Hope that helps

I was just wondering how many watts the behringer xenyx 1222usb mixer can push?


The board is a mixer only, not an amplifier. A mixer simply, well, mixes audio sources into a line output which then goes to the amplifier. Your question really has no answer since wattage is determined by the amplifier used. Essentially, it can "push" as many watts as the amplifier can deliver.

Mic output of my pmp3000 is weak,levels must all the way up to get any mic sound louder,Im using balanced xlr's for my mics, Is there any adjustable sensitivity adjustment inside the mixer? like the...


The answer to your question is NO, there is NOT an internal adjustment.

For many mics the trim is used full clockwise. Some higher output mics I use the trims are run at 3 o'clock which is mostly turned up. This is NORMAL for most mixers. If you don't have enough mic gain relative to other inputs, the fault is balancing the other inputs down and using higher setting on your MAIN slider.

If you use 8 ohm speakers then you can expect to get about 200 Watts of audio per side with this amp. You can get about 400 Watts RMS (600 Watts peak) using 4 ohm speakers.

The efficiency of the speakers makes a lot of difference in the sound level output/

Hello Sir, Hi, the amplifier best suited for it would be a Behringer also, the EP2500 would be a match, and the eurolive B815neo speakers, but this cost a lot, any amplifier and a corresponding speaker will do. for your electric guitars or acoustics the GTX30. If you will use your 15" speakers, match it with a right amplifier, you did not mention its watts rating, If your speakers are 250 watts, then buy an amplifier slightly higher that 250 watt,

What is the best suited power amp for the Peavey PV14 mixer board?


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.

You can work forwards from the mic to the speakers, or backwards from the speakers back to the mic.
The mixer and the amp both should have lights to indicate when there is signal present -- if you don't have lights at the mixer, then you won't have any sound downstream at the speakers. In this case, the problem is with the mixer or the sound source (mic or instrument)

If you *do* have lights at the amp, then the signal is getting that far, and the problem must be with the amp or the speakers.

Can I run 8 speakers and 1 sub through 1 1200watt 2:1 Sony Xplod?


asuming the 8s are 4ohms each; wire two in series and that gives you 8ohms then two more in series then you put those together in parallel and it gives you a 4ohm load. repeat with other four for the other side. you should then be able to bridge the sub


series; posative of one speaker to negative of other speaker and that doubles your ohms

parallel; posative to posative negative to negative and that cuts the ohms in half

No Volume oe sound coming out of speakers


try connecting speakers to another sound source or if you have access to a ohm meter, check impedance of speakers, should measure 4~8 ohms.

Speakers


400 watts delivered to 300 watt speakers the only way to do this would be to wire two subwoofers in series so that the power needed to drive them will be 600 watts to max, however this will increase your impedance on the speaker (8 ohms) load so what you can do to compensate is get an 8 ohm 600 watt resistor and put it in parallel with the speakers you will then have 4 ohms of impedance at a total capacity of 600 watts of power In other words the amplifier won't blow these out now.
