I am also running a behringer 32 channel board. all seems well with the board, i believe that the problem is with the amp. PLEASE HELP! Thanks

Hi there Apostledavis

I don't know this specific system and you haven't mentioned whether you have just installed it or whether it has only just started causing problems but did work ok before?
However, there are a few things I would look at. I would also check the system right from the input bit by bit to see whether the problem is an input or output one.

1) Completely isolate the amp from all other equipment and connect a signal source to the left input only and then the right input only. If they sound much the same, the amp is probably ok. If they don't then the amp is probably faulty.

2) Check whether the monitors and amp both have weak output on the left channel.

3) Check and balance settings.

4) Check the speaker phasing.

5) Check all the interconnections, plugs and sockets. You could squirt some switch cleaner on a rag then wipe all the plugs before putting them back in the sockets.

6) Check the Behringer VU meters and make sure they indicate a reasonable balance on both channels.

7) Check that the channels sound ok when using headphones.

8) Check all faders and sliders by moving them vigorously to clear dust from the tracks. (Not applicable if digital, of course)

Hope this helps

How to wire up outboard effects, poweramps to mixer. Out to sub, mains, monitors each with own poweramp, and several outboard effects, eq's, comp/lim/gate, sonic maximizer, quadraverb, crossover.


I'd need to know what mixer you have, to know if there is a [line out] connection socket and an [internal amp in] connection socket.

"each with own poweramp" I presume means the ep1500's and NOT that the speakers are active (ie containing amps)

***If any of your speakers are active, ask the question again, with more detail.***

So if all your speakers are passive, I offer the following.

I assume there is [effect send] and [effect return] on the mixer

effect send>quadraverb>effect return

mixer line out > eq > compressor > sonic maximizer > crossover

sub output of crossover> amp > sub
high output of crossover to mixer's internal amp input
mixer's speaker output > main speakers

monitor output > other side of eq (>other side of compressor if desired, but use sparingly ) > other side of sonic max if it is true stereo , otherwise skip > amp > monitors

If your mixer doesn't have an input to its internal amp, we are "back to the drawing board"
With questions like this it pays to give as much detail as possible; model and make of each component etc
I have done my best with the the info you have provided.

These had a little switch on the far right side that shifted modes from stereo to main and monitor. Check the position as it is tiny push button. Also try sending line levels DIRECTELY into the power amp inpout jacks to verify the amps are both OK... if not, the repair shop is only option... there is only one main fuse for the amp and if one side is working, then the fuse is good.

CAN I CONNECT BOTH MONITORS AND SPEAKERS (S215 AND SM'S) TO A YAMAHA P5000S AMP?


You could use this amp as effectively 2 separate mono amplifiers - using one channel to power the monitors and one to power the main speakers.
Alternatively you can run the amp in stereo connecting one set of speakers to the neutrik outputs and one to the jack outputs. In this case the amp output will be shared equally between the two sets of speakers, which are in parallel, and the combined impedance must be not less than 4 ohms.

You seem to be the expert - i just got my pmp 4000,,,,i'm a little confused,,i understand the concept of side A for mains,,(mono) and plugged monitors into side B -got sound out of both mains and...


The MON faders ONLY control the output to the MON L and MON R jacks, NOT the split use of MAIN/MON outputs. You MIGHT try varying the MONO fader and see if it varies the MON part of the split output.
Best to use the unit as MAIN L and R to main speakers and use a stereo amp or POWERED monitors driven from the MON L and R jacks. With this, the MON faders will control your monitors as you would like them to.
ALSO make sure ALL equipment connected together is powered from teh same recepacle power system. Powering interconnected equipment from receptacles at opposite ends of the room is asking for damage due to ground bounce and faults.
PLEASE read my tip on here about a HAZARD of speaker polarity if you use Speakon to 1/4 inch cables.

Hello; I have a used Behringer pmp5000 mixer. The


Without knowing how you have your monitors configured it is hard to analyze what you have posted.

In brief, SW3 on the schematic that selects MAIN L and MAIN R in the upper position, MAIN and MONITOR in the middle, and bridged in the lower is used to configure the internal amps.

In the upper position, the amp power outputs come from the mixed stereo bus and are simultaneously controlled as a stereo signal by the MAIN slider.

In the middle position MAIN and MONITOR, the left amp receives the signal from the mix bus and is controlled by the MAIN slider. The MONITOR output from the other side of the power amp is controlled ONLY by possibly the "MONO" slider.

The schematics are hard to decode and what is needed is a signal flow diagram.

For my uses, I don't try to use splitting the power amps between mains and monitor but prefer to use the mains together with SW3 in the upper position (Note your 27 may be refering to the user manual designation for same switch). I then use another small amp from the 1/4 inch MONITOR jacks whcih are under control of the MONITOR sliders.
Please note that the MIX for these two MONITOR channels is controlled by the MON1 and MON2 knobs for each channel.

How do i connect my pv2600amp to my peavey subs and top speakers, i have the leads but what do i do?


Line outs Left and Right from mixer to power amp Left and Right inputs,
Power amp outs to Subs(if they have passive crossovers built in check specs on subs).
From Subs then to Main spkrs. Make sure power amp is set in stereo mode using this way.

Alternative: You will need at least a 2-way stereo crossover unit inline after mixer and before power amps if the subs don't have a built in passive crossover. Most of them do have passive crossovers in the subs these days. Then separate amps or one channel would drive the subs and the other the main speakers. True stereo would require at least a 2 way crossover and two stereo power amps if hooking them up this way.

There is another option as is common with many sub setups. Send the signal to the mains using L/R outputs from mixer and a separate Mono output to the subs only. Putting only bass/kick and low frequency outputs in this send would help too.

Ihave a behringer PMP3000, have a pair of EV300w


Serena,

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.

Connecting Bose 901 series iv to Harman Kardon AVR 254


Most HK av receivers have pre amp out,power amp in with metal jumpers connecting them for the main or front channels. that would be the best place to hook up the EQ on a AV receiver. If your receiver doesn't have pre out, power in jacks , you can use tape monitor .record out playback in. The tape monitor option is best for stereo use , as the active EQ will charge all speakers in tape mode, possibly damaging other speakers.I run my 901 s with a seperate pre-amp,power-amp hooked up to my Denon AV receiver that way i can run in surround w/standard speakers
