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.

How to connect boss dd3 with studiomaster 16 channel mixer?


Use 1/4" plug cables or XLR-1/4" cables with the fx loop, depending on the type of connector of your mixer. Don't use batteries, they don't last. Use a type 2 (for noise reduction) 9V wall outlet adapter.

How to connect my stereo reciever to my Pyramid PR 2700 mixer


Running mixer to receiver??? does the mixer have rca (red & white) audio outputs? if so you can run it that way and hookup to whatever input you want on back of stereo. If it doesn't then you can buy a 1/8" stereo jack to rca and run out of headphone out. (will need a 1/4" headphone adapter though).

How do you connect tape deck to pmp 4000


Hi, use the RCA/Phono connections for the Tape In & Out. The level will be set by the Master/Main fader. If that is not so convenient (& assuming it's a PMP4000?) there should be a "Main 2" output & connections with the level controlled separately to Main 1 via a Knob / Rotary control over to the right above the "Mono" fader... Hope that helps... Good Luck!

Hope you guys can help... I have a laptop Karaoke system. I connect from laptop to 6 channel mixer to speakers. I use a stereo phono to RCA from laptop to mixer. I am experiencing a buzz coming through...


Yep! Get a decent audio interface that attaches to the PC with a USB connection and uses BALANCED lines to your mixer. I use a UA-25EX Roland/cakewalk as an example. (about $200 and there are cheaper units such as M-Audio Fast Track MKII ) Note these interfaces BOTH record and playback with two channels for stereo.
Essentially the audio board that is in PC's and Laptops are too near the switching noise of the processor and some of that is just bound to get into the audio lines as they don't even have balanced audio lines from the computers. Make sure you use either TRS or XLR balanced cables from whatever interface you get. Also connect ALL interconnected equipment to the same power source or receptacle. You can try to reduce the buzz with the mixer EQ's with what you have, but that sacrifices audio quality.

Hi Folks, I have the Behringer PMP3000 Europower Desk. now also have a studiomaster VPX15 Sub (Active 600W). Does anyone know what the crossover arrangements are on the PMP for the Mono out, and what...


There is no crossover arrangement. On the PMP5000 they have a tunable filter INTENDED to do low pass for a subwoofer. When selecting this mode for a subwoofer The frequency of the low pass filter can be set between 30 and 200 Hz. This feature is NOT available on the PMP3000.

There is nothing related to a crossover in these amps other than what is mentioned above.

The MONO out is merely an analog summation of both the L and R channels.

Hi I have Mackie DFX-12 Mixer along with 2 Power


Run your speakers cables to your stereo "outs" (L/R) then run your sub off of one of your aux "outs" or sub group "outs" (make sure you assign channels to sub group out).

Hi. I have a Peavey xr800f. Where can I connect a 400 W active subwoofer?


If the subwooofer has only a single input, then connect it to the Monitor output which does a mix, HOWEVER the level will NOT vary with the main sliders, but only with the monitor pots... This is NOT really practical for performances.

There is no mixer built in the unit, so you might make a simple resistive mixer taking the "Master out" left and right using 1K ohm resistor from each to a common point that feeds the subwoofer. Tie the grounds of the sub and mixer together.

FOR SYSTEM SAFETY always power the mixer and active speakers or any interconnnected equipment from the same receptacle or source.

No sound


Your power amp should be connected to MAIN OUT left and right. NOT the MAIN "in".

The CD is connected correctely as you described. Make sure the CD has a line level output to match the input expected by the mixer.
Note:Walkman style CD players require a special cable to go between 1/8 inch stereo to dual RCA plugs.

You have to advance the MAIN fader.

You should be using TRS interconnect cables from the mixer to your amps OR using XLR cables.

I have the Eurolive B212A speaker,and the Xenyx 1202fx.I want to play my Ipod using this set up.Please help with connection


The Ipod is stereo and your speaker is not, so don't expect stereo.

Find a 1/8 inch stereo cable that splits the two channels into individual cables and enter those into two channels of the 1202 mixer. You might find a cable that goes from the 1/8 inch stereo and splits to two RCA type jacks which you have to either find RCA inpouts on your mixer or get two RCA to 1/4 inch adapters.

Crank the pan controls clear to the left on those two channels. Run a cable from the 1202 left main out to your speaker input.

Adjust the controls as needed.
