hello - i have been running a PMP3000 for about a year now. i run it a few different ways depending on the venue, but if you're playing mostly small to medium sized rooms i would suggest you set the switch upper left to run main L and main R - then just plug the A & B speaker outs to your speakers. Then turn up the MAIN1 volume to 0 and each of the channels you are using to 0 (i mean the fader slides, all to the middle of the little box that's about 2/3rds of the way up). then with the power on turn up the gain (top knob) on each channel until they are the volume you want them. then during your gig you can make minor adjustments using the faders by sliding them up and down until you get the mix you want. by running the system in stereo (main L & R) you can take advantage of the 'stereo effects' knob over the eq and also PAN channels left and right for a little more separation (like if you have 2 guitars). i hope this helps and that it isn't confusing... i think it's a good board for the money with some decent features.

What is the actual watts per channel @ 8-ohms and 4-ohms on the Behringer PMP3000?

Those specs would be right - I have this same board but the amp was fried by a previous owner. I pulled the amp board out and tossed it and use the mixer now to drive an external amp. Great board. This amp is rated at 1200W "peak", bridged into an 8ohm load. That would equate to about 900W RMS bridged into 8ohm or 450 per side into 4ohm loads per side. You can't daisy chain all 4 speakers....impedance would be too low. You can run two of your 8ohm speakers per side - that results in a 4ohm load per side for the amp. That would give you amp delivery of 450W per side. Your speakers are rated to handle more than that so you're fine. For the could run one speaker per side no problem....just lower power output.

Does using subs also help increase volume (as well as bass) - and crackles question?

There are several issues here... You can connect subs in parallel BUT they need to have a crossover built it otherwise you are sending highs and mids to the subs which won't like it. Properly set up, there should be NO crackling on either channel.
Make sure that no clipping is going on, including in the effects. A set of headphones is a GOOD idea when analyzing problems. Twelve inch speakers are pretty marginal for 300 watts... I have used 15's and 10;s on my PMP3000 and PMP5000 units with no problem at REASONABLE sound levels. With 15's we can run at 95 Db which is OSHA limits... My PMP's were beyond repair units and I have repaired them... got a good deal on them. PLEASE read my tip on here about channel A of the PMP mixers. IF you use Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables, THE sleeve of Channel A is the "hot", not the tip of the plug. It is easy to get this grounded and kill channel A of your amp. There is NO mention of this in the user documents and I discovered it when repairing the units. Should you get a failure that pops the fuse, DO NOT replace the fuse until the internal damage is repaired. A lot of craclking can come from blown speakers. Swap your sides and make sure the problem is not with a particular speaker. I had a Peavey that was crackling and found the noise was the logo on the grille that was rattling...

When I plug in my XLR microphone to my Behringer PMP3000 it only works on the Main/Mon function not the Main L/R function, and when it is working it only amplifies through one speaker. WHY???

Check if the PAN control for that channel is set at 12 o'clock position.

You can "pan" the mic to either L or R speaker or anything between.

On the Main/Mon setting, the level sent to the Mon side is controlled ONLY by the Mon level pot for that channel.

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.

Not getting max power

Manual is available online:

Note: this manual covers three different units.

Set you PAN controls to 12 o'clock. Set the slide switch for MAIN A MAIN B clear up.

If one side is still dead, you MAY have a failure and continued use can cause further damage.

Whatever you do, DON'T change speaker leads when unit is on !!!!!!! I have been repairing these units.

Behringer ep2500 amplifier

Yes you can,,,,,BUT the output labelling on the AMP will tell you where you can connect the 4ohms or the 8ohms....please read these labels and connect the 4ohm speakers to the 4ohm terminals, and the 8ohms to the 8ohms terminals...

If you intend to connect the 4ohm and the 8ohm speakers in parallel then the output impedance terminals you use should be the 4ohm ones.

If there is no labelling showing any 4ohm output terminals then its best if you dont use the 4ohm speakers at all....just connect the 8ohm to the 8ohm dont mention any crossover networks inside the speaker boxes or if you have tweeter speakers... so just stick to the basics above at present....
