Hi Eddien, you can get the entie user manual from here. It has detailed instructions. Read pages 6-7, and then page 10,there are detailed instructions on how to set for mono operation, and the correct connections to the Speakon plug. They are easy to change and you generally only need an allen key of the right size. Good Luck. Get back to me here is you have any issues you want to write about:)

regards
Graeme

Where are the main speaker cables connected to in a behinger europower pmp 2000 mixer amp


The Behringer PMP2000 uses Speakon jacks on the speaker cables. The outputs are located on the back panel. Which ones you use is determined by how you configure the mixer. The Main inputs are located on the right side of the face of the mixer.

Behringer PMP powered mixer safety issue


This is applicable to the PMP powered mixers regarding an undocumented issue of polarity of speaker connections.

Failure of the "A" side of these units can happen if Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables are used and IF the barrel of the 1/4 inch plug becomes grounded. This can happen from careless handling or from intentionally trying to parallel another device from the output which results in a ground being placed on the barrel of the 1/4 inch jack on the "A" side of these mixers. The barrel of a 1/4 inch on the "A" side is the "hot" from the amp.

Upon analyzing the circuitry, these mixers internally invert the audio signal to the "A" side and then the speaker connections reverse the polarity again. Behringer does this to easily allow "bridged" operation of the amplifier.

This creates a hazard that can result in blowing the "A" side amp of these mixers.

If one ONLY uses Speakon connectors everywhere it is NOT a problem, but anytime 1/4 inch plugs are used in the speaker cable system, the hazard exists.

Just bought a Harbinger HX121M 2" Monitor, from Musicians Friend it did not come with a booklet on how to wire into my sound system it has two 1/4" jacks and a strange round plug about the size...


If you don't know how to connect this... well we don't either because you did not tell us what your sound system is. The larger plug is what is known as a "Speakon" connector and is a fairly reliable speaker connection that is used now. For your use you will PROBABLY use either of the 1/4 inch jacks with a cable from the amp that will drive the monitor(s). If you have multiple monitors you will daisy chain them using the 1/4 inch jacks and SPEAKER rated cables creating a string of speakers with input going into one and an output from the same one to the next speaker and so on...USUALLY you will be limited to two speakers per amp output...

Hi i have 2x ev sx300 speakers (speakon) and 2x peavey es 315 (1/4 jack) can i daisy chain the ev's from channel a and the peavey's from channel B (all speakers are 8 ohm). Also should speakon...


Yes, you can put two 8 ohm speakers daisy chain per side MAX. The Speakon should have ONLY two wires on the +1 and -1 terminals unless you are using bridged mode which is NOT applicable in your configuration of speakers. Also be careful is you use any 1/4 inch speaker plugs in the sytem as the SLEEVE, not the TIP of channel A is the "hot" lead... get this to ground someplace and goodbye amp.

We just got a PMP6000 and this has to be the worst manual ever written. Not a word about bridge mode except that it has one. Do I have to rewire a speaker cable or what? Which fader would control the...


Yes, in bridge mode you will wire ONE Speakon that will have the two speaker wires connected to pins "1+" and "2+". You do NOT need the manual to do this, the info is right on the back of the PMP6000 itself. You will plug that Speakon into channel "B".

PLEASE note that you CANNOT go below 8 ohm speaker impedance. If your speakers are 4 ohm you MUST connect two in SERIES which requires special cables and the speakers MUST be identical. You can connect TWO 16 ohm speakers in parallel by daisy chaining, however 16 ohm speakers are NOT very common. With 8 ohm speakers you can connect EXACTLY one in bridged mode UNLESS you connect four of them in series-parallel which requires special cables and great care. Believe me you do NOT want to have an accident with this amp as repairing is extensive.

Lastly, put the speaker configuration switch down to the bridged mode.

This is how bridged mode works: Sliding the switch down basically configures the two power amps in monaural and one amp is inverted so there outputs are out of phase by 180 degrees effectively doubling the voltage.

Remember that BOTH wires in bridged mode are HOT and grounding one while amp is on will likely blow out one side or more.

I feel like a dork asking this question but how do you connect the amplifier to your mixer. I see that there are places for a banna plug however my mixer will not take a 1/4 banna plug.


In case you don't have one, here is a link to the manual:http://www.peavey.com/assets/literature/manuals/80300573.pdf I don't know if you are using a separate crossover between the mixer and the amp but here is the simplest explanation.I just reread your question and I don't even know whether you have a Peavey amp. Run proper cables from the main output of your mixer to the main inputs of your power amp.They will be 1/4"shielded cables or Balanced XLR cables. Do not use unshielded speaker cables to hook the mixer and the amp together.Run speaker cables from the speaker outputs of the amp to the input jacks of your speakers.Make sure the impedance of your speaker cabinets equals or exceeds the impedance rating marked on your amp. Here is the link to the newer model PV2600 manual:http://www.sweetwater.com/store/media/pv2600_doc_manual.pdf Don't use Speakon cables unless your speaker cabinets are equipped with Speakon input jacks. Banana plugs aren't as solid a connection as the binding posts are.

We are having problems with a Behringer PMP5000 board. We have the switch setting on Mon1/Mono. We can get sound out of the monitor output, but the mono output is almost silent. Do you have suggestions...


It is NOT clear what configuration you have set up and what you consider the MONO output is, whether it is the power amp MONO side output or the line level MONO 1/4 inch jack on the top of the unit (this jack is NOT speaker output). If you can run normal stereo speakers using both sides of the power amp in the AB mode, the problems you are having is pilot error.

REMEMBER the main out 1/4 inch jacks are BALANCED TRS jacks... DO NOT put mono plugs into these.

A WARNING: If you use Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables, remember that the BARREL of side A is HOT, not the tip!!! You can fry the amp if you inadvertently ground that barrel someplace. (Side B has the barrel grounded) This information is NOT readily available in the manual and results in many a blown amp. They do this to implement the "Bridged" mode easily.

I have schematics and can unravel most any problem you are having.

How to connect the speaker cabinet to the head?


Use a SPEAKER RATED cable which will have good quality 1/4 inch jacks. Go from a speaker out on the head to one of the jacks provided on the speaker cabinet. NOTE: some newer speaker cabinets use SPEAKON connectors and if those are provided, they are more secure than 1/4 inch plugs/jacks.

PLEASE loop the speaker cables through a handle of the cabinet at each end to avoid them being yanked out while hot as the amplifier can be damaged if it happens.

OBSERVE the maximum load. If the amp says 4 ohms minimum, put no more than two 8 ohm cabinets on the amp as two 8 ohms parallel to 4 ohms.

DO NOT use an instrument cable.
