Question about Music
Hi - I want to connect a powered subwoofer to my P.A using the RCA outs on the mixer using a stereo RCA to single male xlr lead.(male xlr is the mono input on the sub). Will this work?
You CANNOT have a stereo set of RCA jacks "wyed" into a single XLR mono input.
The RCA output drivers will "fight" each other. Some things will appear to work, but give poor performance.
You could make a rudimentary passive mixer by putting a series resistor say 1K ohms from each of the RCA's to a common UNBALANCED input of a subwoofer.
The XLR is balanced so that would not really work unless you also have an unbalanced input on the subwoofer.
The right way to do this is to get a cheap two input mixer that has EQ with it and mix your two mains before sending to the subwoofer. You want a little mixer that also has balanced outputs (XLR or TRS) to send to the subwoofer.
UNLESS the subwoofer has EQ in it, you really need to have an EQ in the little mixer so that you don't send high's to the subwoofer... They don't like highs and the sound will suffer.
