I agree with 'radio head.'
Turntables require a particular frequency response and the input needs to be correctly equalised to accommodate this. If your amp had phono inputs these would be equalised internally.

Unfortunately, many modern amps no longer have phono inputs. There are two possibly three options.
1) You could obtain a turntable that includes built in Phono eq
2) As 'radio head' says, you can obtain in line active equalisers. These are called RIAA Equalisers (Equalizers if you're in the US) or RIAA preamps. This allows you to plug your turntable into a small box, then plug the box into one of the audio inputs on the back of your amp.
3) You may be able to adjust your mixer to the required frequency response and use it as a preamp.

What you cannot do, regrettably, is just plug your turntable into an ordinary audio input. It will not do any harm if you want to try it and it will make a noise, but you won't like it!

How can i connect speekers with just copper wire to my mixer with red and white jacks


You didn't list the model number of the mixer, but from your description, your mixer does not have power amplifier outputs for speakers. The red and white RCA jacks are out puts that would plug into a power amp input, and the speakers would connect to the power amp, as in a PA system.

I don't know how to use behringer feedback destroyer DSP1124p


Determine where in the mixer's signal path to connect the unit. Your options are:
1. One or two individual microphone channels via the mixer's CHANNEL INSERT in/out jacks.
2. The monitor mix output via the mixer's MONITOR OUT jacks.
3. The main mix output via the mixer's MAIN OUT jacks.

  • 2 Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from CHANNEL INSERT OUT jacks on the desired mixer channel to INPUT RIGHT or LEFT on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel for individual microphone channels. Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the OUTPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel to that mixer channel's CHANNEL INSERT IN jack.
  • 3 Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the mixer's MONITOR OUT jacks to the INPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel for the monitor signal path. Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the OUTPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel to the monitor amplifier INPUT jack or amplified monitor speaker INPUT jacks.
  • 4 Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the mixer's MAIN OUT jacks to the INPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel for the main mix (FOH) signal path. Connect a balanced cable with the appropriate connectors from the OUTPUT RIGHT or LEFT jacks on the Feedback Destroyer's back panel to the main amplifier INPUT jack or amplified house speaker INPUT jacks.

    I received the turntables and mixer but Im having trouble installing everything together. Is there any companies that can help you install the turntables, mixer, and speakers


    Not to worry if you can take some pains and be confident. First of all arrange the turntable, the mixer, the amplifiers and the speakers. Connect the turntables two RCA pins to the PHONE pins L and R. of the mixer. Using another set of RCA cables to connect the output of the mixer to the amplifier's AUX inout L and R. Try to connect the red and white in accordance to the L&R. The speakers should be cconnected to the left and right of the amplifier's main. if you have front and rear use them but connect with the polarity of the red and black polarity . Use a good power supply multipin unit to connect all the power. Do not switch on until you have checked once again. Now switch on and play your favourite record. DO take time to do and you will suceed. Good day

    How do I use my laptop like turntables, PLEASE HELP


    A trip to your local Radio Shack should solve your problem with the purchase of a mini phone jack to double RCA type (red and white) leads cable.

    Jack into the audio out of your Macbook and into the input of your choice on the mixer with the RCA jacks and you are good to go.

    Cant connect my Numark PT-01 to my Numark DM950 mixer


    What do you mean it didn't work? What happened? Are you getting no sound, did the plugs not fit? Please be more specific.

    If you are not getting any sound, make sure you connected to the LINE input of the mixer - the PT01 has Line Level outputs, so you CANNOT connect it to the Phono input, as the signal will be too hot for the mixer - so make sure it is in the LINE INPUT. Also make sure the toggle switch on the mixer is set to LINE. There is nothing else to this set up, raise volumes, and that's it. It's very simple.

    Connect turntables(technics SL1210MK5) to a mixer?


    None. The cables are already attached to the turntable. They are hard wired to the unit. The red & White cable. Just connect to the PHONO INPUT on your DJ MIXER, and connect the thin ground wire to the GROUND terminal on the mixer. That's it your ready to go.

    Connecting a behringer djx700 mixer to a panasonic amp


    The problem is most likely between the turntable and mixer. You need to be sure that the turntable is connected to a phono input. I'm not sure if your mixer has one. If not, you need to have a phono pre-amp between the turntable and the line input on the mixer.

    Check that first and get back to us if you still have problems/questions.

    No music


    Where do you have the turntable connected? Is it going into a DJ Mixer, a Receiver, or a Power Amp?

    No matter the unit, make sure you have it plugged into the PHONO INPUT connection on the rear. If your receiver/amp does not have this, then you will need a PHONO PRE-AMP - The turntable connects to the PHONO PRE-AMP, and the PRE-AMP connects to the LINE IN or AUX IN of your receiver.

    If you are connected to the PHONO INPUT of your mixer/receiver/amp, then the problem might be one of the following on the turntable:

    1) Tonearm
    2) RCA Cables
    3) Cartridge

    There is no easy way to see which one of these is the culprit, it's just a matter of elimination.

    But, you didn't provide much information. If you can be more specific as to how you have your turntable connected, what kind of cartridge your using, and whether or not, you've determined that the problem is indeed the turntable and not your mixer/receiver/amp, or even your speakers. This would help in determining what the issue might be.

    Turntable connection


    you can not connect a turn table in any other input source other than Phono input my friend. turntable has got very weak signal thathas to be pre-amplified before getting a signal just right for a CD/Tape DVD input. you require a phono am to get an audio signal.
