No preamp required. I just repaired one I got from Ebay.. There are a lot of buttons on the unit and you need to have several of them set correctely to get output. This is a powerful amp and you can blow speakers easily so be careful. Make sure the standby switch is up. Most important: The slide switch should be clear UPWARD to the L/R speaker position.
The white trim control(s) need to be up to match the input source levels. Advance the faders for the cahnnel(s) being used. Advance the MAIN to control overall volume. That should get you started.
MAKE SURE your source is plugged into the CORRECT input jack as there are "inserts" and you will get not output or very weak output if you are in the wrong jacks.

When I plug-in my vp1220f floor monitors in to the monitor mix on the pmp 2000 i get no sound or little sounds


If you are referring to the "monitor" output , this is a Pre-amp output which connects to a power amp or speakers that have built-in power amps. The Monitor output is a high impedance output. This output will not drive speakers directly.

Behringer PMP powered mixer safety issue


This is applicable to the PMP powered mixers regarding an undocumented issue of polarity of speaker connections.

Failure of the "A" side of these units can happen if Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables are used and IF the barrel of the 1/4 inch plug becomes grounded. This can happen from careless handling or from intentionally trying to parallel another device from the output which results in a ground being placed on the barrel of the 1/4 inch jack on the "A" side of these mixers. The barrel of a 1/4 inch on the "A" side is the "hot" from the amp.

Upon analyzing the circuitry, these mixers internally invert the audio signal to the "A" side and then the speaker connections reverse the polarity again. Behringer does this to easily allow "bridged" operation of the amplifier.

This creates a hazard that can result in blowing the "A" side amp of these mixers.

If one ONLY uses Speakon connectors everywhere it is NOT a problem, but anytime 1/4 inch plugs are used in the speaker cable system, the hazard exists.

My pmp froze, tried to reset it but now it wouldn't power up


Your PMP what? Is this a Behringer?... and if so what model?... If it won't power up, for goodness sakes do NOT replace a blown fuse as additional damage usually results. Get it serviced... if under warranty, then exercise the warranty. If it is a BEhringer, then also read my tip on Fixya tips regarding PMP mixers and a hazard of using 1/4 inch plug speaker cables or adapters.

Behringer europower pmp1000, mixer unit, has all leds lit ,is responding to mic. input, bur is not producing any ourput to speakers, can you advise please.


ALL LED's should NOT be lit all the time. If thsy are, there is a failure in the power supply.

plug headphones into the 1/4 inch main output jacks on the top... you will only hear sound in the left side headphone for each. This would verify the preamp is working.

No amp output.amplifier damage


You will have to have it repaired. Also read my tip regarduing the PMP mixer/amps that if you use 1/4 inch cable plugs to speakers, the SLEEVE of channel A is hot, not the tip. It the sleeve shportss to somehing that is ground, goodbye Channel A or more. This is not in the book.

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.

Can i hook up a seperate power amp . to the pmp 6000 powerd mixer . for more over all power.


You can add extra amps driving ADDITIONAL speakers... you CANNOT parallel amps driving the same speakers.

Drive these seperate amps from the MAINS OUT connnectors using TRS and balanced lines to those external amps.

My behringer pmp 3000 has litle power i thing is 3000 or how much power it haveit? I put 2 speaker only ,,,, thankyou


The unit should drive 400 Watts RMS into a 4 ohm load per side.

The amount of sound power you get will VASTLY depend on speaker efficiency. You would likely use at least 15 inch speakers with the unit.

Fuse and fuse holder needed for Behringer 3000 pmp mixer


Try this Behringer support:

BEHRINGER USA, Inc.
18912 North Creek Parkway, Suite 200
Bothell, WA 98011
Tel.: +1 425 672 0816
Fax: +1 425 673 7647

I just repaired a PMP3000.

A bit of warning on these. Do not let a speaker leads get pulled while powered. They can arc out the power amp causing extensive damage.

If the fuse ever blows do NOT replace the fuse as much more damage will result. Service the unit before using.
