Re: Mackee PPM808M 1200 How to set the equalizer

Each channel strip has its own 3 band EQ with knobs that effect the hi, mid, and low.

The mid is centered at 2.5kHz and gives you 12dB of boost or cut in either direction, the high gives you 15dB of boost or cut from 12kHz and up, while the low gives you 15dB of boost or cut at 80kHz and below. At their mid positions these knobs are flat (no cut or boost).

The PPM808M also has two 9 band graphic EQs in the Master Output Section on the front panel, Monitor EQ and Main EQ. These two EQs are the last thing in the chain before the signal leaves the mixer on either of these line outs (monitor line out, or mixer line out).

The 'Monitor EQ' effects output to the monitor speakers on stage (and power amplifier if the 'Power Amp Routing' switch is pushed in).

The 'Main EQ' effects the signal to the main speakers (or the mixer line out).

Each of these 'Master Output' EQs has a Rumble Reduction button which when pressed in engages a low-cut filter which rolls off frequencies below 75Hz and is designed to prevent 'stage rumble' from things like footsteps on the stage being picked up by stage mics. These filters are separate from the graphic EQs and the Main Rumble Reduction switch effects only mono channels 1-6 (not stereo channels 7&8). It also has no effect on the EFX to MAIN or the TAPE IN. The Monitor Rumble Reduction switch however does effect the EFX to MON signal.

Have you isolated the problem to the equalizer only? By that, I mean remove it from the signal chain and bypass it completely. That's the first thing.Does the system make noise without it in? If dead quiet when removed then you go to step two.
If the noise returns when the EQ is reconnected, you should eliminate crappy or broken cables, connectors etc. Replace with a known good working set. Still there? Buzzing infers either a ground issue or some kind of power supply problem, only if the previous stuff is eliminated. Do this first, then ask again.
