First I need to know if you are getting any sound at all or dead. Are you switching from RCA to 1/4 plug if so just look up the model and it will tell you the proper connectors to use for your circumstance.

My pedal had its phone jack end severed off. I'm trying to replace the jack. The units internal pot has 3 wire connection but the jack only has 2. What wires go where on the jack.


The jack uses three wires because it supports TRS (Tip-Ring-Sleeve) type ¼" jacks as well as standard TS (guitar) jacks.

To best see which wires go to which posts, it's easiest to find a TRS type jack and unscrew the cover to see the configuration.

If you can't find one, keep this general principle in mind:
Typically, the ground wire is black and is soldered to the main body of the connector, and the remaining wires are soldered together as one to the other post.

I have a Samick KK1 weighted controller keyboard and I can't get the sustain to work - any ideas?


I would check the input plug on your pedal. Some contollers will be wired for a 1/4" TS jack, some for a TRS jack, and you may have the wrong one.

Connecting compressor and equalizer to pmp5000


Use a two channel INSERT SNAKE. Plug the TRS connector for each channel into the INSERT jack for the mains in the area above the effects unit. Plug the TIP of each channel of the snake into the input of your effects unit and the RING plug into the output of your effects. The snake has ONE TRS connector and TWO TS connectors per channel.

What is the best way to connect an external EQ or Feedback Destroyer unit to a Behringer PMP3000


Get an "insert snake" which splits each of two TRS plugs into TWO TS plugs.
Plug the TRS ends into the MAIN INSERT jacks and each of the "TIP" plugs at the other end into inpout jacks of the destroyer. Plug the "RING" plugs into the output jacks of the destroyer. You will need a snake with at least two sets of splits. I use a Behringer PROCOM compressor. For those the TRS plugs go into the channel insert jacks and the tips and ring plugs go to the in and out of each channel of the compressor respectively.

We have a pmp6000 mixer hooked up to our ep 4000 and b1800 and b2520,it seems we can only hook up the amp to the mixer into either mono's 1 and 2 or the main 2 however not in main 1 with full...


MAKE SURE the cables you plug into 1/4 inch mains are TRS plugs, and not mono cables (TS). The main output 1/4 inch jacks are TRS balanced outputs and if you plug mono (TS) cables that shorts out the ring connector reducing the power by 6 Db. USE ONLY TRS balanced cables for interconnects !!!! Also read my tip on Fixya regarding PMP mixers. If you use 1/4 inch SPEAKER cables or adapters, if you short the SLEEVE of channel A output to ground you can pop the channel A amp. The TIP of channel B is the hot BUT the SLEEVE of channel A is the HOT. The ttip I posted explains why this is and it isn't mention in the Behringer documentation.

Hello, Effects and EQ hook up problem


Many of those connections REQUIRE using TRS cables (stereo style) rather than TS cables (mono style). It is possible you have mixed the cables if it worked before.

Any cable plugged into an "insert" should be a TRS (tip-ring-sleeve) cable.

Look up these connections in your 1604 manual.

Are speakers connected to monitor out or main out.?
Is gain for mic turned up?
Is there a MAIN OUT switch (on/off)?
Is there a MUTE control on the board?

Connection to Mixer


I am not sure about that brand but on my Roland Speakers, the TRS jack lives inside the XLR. I first missed it. Take an XLR and try to connect. I can't imagine that they would not have XLR especially for studio monitors. Also are your speakers passive or active, that is something that I would seriously at. No amplitude, low signal, no active.
