Depending upon the compressor and mixer, there are a couple of options. The compressor should be between the output of the mixer and the input of the power amps. To accomplish this, you can use either an insert cable or 2 audio cables. Some mixers have an insert point for each output. These are usually marked as inserts adn use TRS cables (Tip/Ring/Sleeve). These cables are essentially the same as stereo 1/4" cables. If the compressor can take that, than all you need is a single insert cable. This insert cable will insert the compressor directly so that you still connect the mixer output to the amp as you woud without the compressor. If not, then you will need two 1/4" standard audio cables to connect the mixer output L/R to the amp input L/R.

Hope this helps,
Dan

See I just bought Xenyx Q502USB from amazon. I connected it with the AC Adapter for a second. lights in the mixer were lit but after a sec lights were gone. And now when I connect it with AC adapter


There are items like this that fail right out of the box. You can test the adapter with a meter to see if it is the part that failed. If it is you can get another adapter like a universal one or you can get a replacement. If the adapter is fine you have to send it back.

Where in the mixer 2222fx does the power cable being connected?


hmmm, the back of this mixer is pretty straight forward, you can only plug it in one place!
did you disassemble the mixer and are working with the internal components? those details would be helpful.


if you can post a picture of what exactly your looking at I can probably label it for you so you know where everything goes.

Help with hooking up a compressor for vocals.


The compressor is a really good idea and should be connected between your mixer and your amplifiers. Your "integrated" mixer/amp is a bit tricky in that you will have to "insert" the compressor in the signal path.

If you have the "console" model....

1. "Main 1 Out" left and right to the input of your compressor and the output of the compressor connected to the "PWR Amp Insert."

2. What is known as Tip, Ring, Sleeve patch cable and plug connected ONLY to the "PWR Amp Insert." This type connection breaks out into a "Input" and "Output" using a single 1/4 stereo plug.

If you have the "square box with knobs on front" model

1. "Main Output" to input of comressor and compressor outputs to "Input to Main" (aka "AUX IN").

Check your owners manual for hookup details or suggestions and remember, all outputs feed inputs and all inputs feed outputs.

I dont know how to connect my gem sound trf152 speakers


Looks like it takes regular home theatre speaker wire. If this is a powered speaker (like a JBL eon g2), then all you need is a passive mixer, and connect the speakers to the mixer. If this is not a powered (amplified) speaker, then you will need an amplifier to boost the sound source and drive the speakers, so you would connect the mixer to the amplifier, then the amp outs to the speakers.

I'm looking for a solution how can i connect my


You can use the compressor in two ways. 1st you can go inline from the main outputs into the compressor out of the compressor to the rest of the world using normal cables. You may also insert the compressor into the main inserts using a cable that is tip, ring, sleeve 1/4", to seperate 1/4" tip sleeve mono plugs. any more questions give us a call at the store 215-736-8055

Always check your cables and connectors on them to make sure the cable is good and the connectors are not loose. This sounds like a bad cable or connection between the line output of your mixer and input to your stereo.

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.
