Setting up a Behringer PMP5000

I have purchased a Behringer PMP5000 and I need help on setting up some stuff. I plan on buying a pair of speakers that have Speakon connections and either a BBE Sonic Maximiser 362, 482i or an 882i, which ever is cheaper and I will only be getting 1. I want the BBE to process all the channels. It would be easy if it was a separate mixer and amp as I would plug it in between the mixer and amp but this one I dont know how to plug it in. I only want 2 speakers to run on this because I have a limited space. What are your recommendations? And if in the distant future I get more space, what speakers would be suited to run in parallel with them? Can you please specify what cables are required including the length of the speaker cables as I only know the very basic. This will be used for home Karaoke/Recording use and maybe a small function in future. Please Help. Cheers!

You can do the effect via the "POWER AMP INSERT" jacks.

Use TRS interconnects to yout effects unit.

If the effects unit does not have TRS type bi-directional in/out ports, you MAY need to make special cables to connect the units. Refer to figure 4.5 on page 9 of your PMP5000 user manual for INSERT connections.

I have a behringer pmp5000. At Practice one of the cables was stepped on and came out of a speaker.then, plugged back in immediately. There was some smoke and now the unit wont even turn on. Can this be...


Yes, it can be repaired. Likely at least the output transistors are fried, possibly the drivers are too. Possible other components like resistors gone, too. Needs somebody that knows amps.

No sound coming out on both r and l channel


Oops! Smoke from on of those is not unusual, as behringer is notorious for bad solder joints and BAD Power supplies. Anyhow the amplifiers are "most likely" OK. but your powersupply is shot. My PMH 3000 did the exact same thing. And here is the bad news. Behringer is also notorious for the lack of assistance in case of problems and will advice you to have the unit repaired at an approved service point. If however you are ok with electronics you can have a go yourself, manuals are few and (very) far between. I have some diagrams and stuff, so if you need some sing out. I have 2, MX 3282A mixers, nothing but trouble! Sorry I can't help you any further, Good luck.

Behringer PMP5000 Mixer. Connected a speakerOn cable to Output A while device was ON. Went to do the same thing on Output B and heard a spark. Turned off the mixer. Now, it will not come on. Checked the...


Chances are you've blown the output transistors. Speakon connectors cannot short out but jack connectors can and if it was not inserted properly you'll have presented a dead short to your powered mixer. In any event it is really bad idea to connect anything when it's switched on. If you're really lucky replacing the output stage (which will probably be dead short on the transistors) and re-adjusting the bias should sort you out.

HOW DO I CONNECT 2 SPEAKERS TO THE MIXER


Unpowered (passive) speakers connect to the Speakon connectors on the back of the unit. Powered speakers or amplified ones connect to the mains output L/R connectors (1/4 inch) near the upper edge of the panel.

One side of my europower pmp 5000 is out, the other is fine.....what up?


What is up is one of the two power amps is blown... I know this problem... It is USUALLY the rearmost channel which goes to the left Speakon faacing the back. Weak insulation between layers of the multilayer circuit board arcs and fries three transistors and a diode and sometimes a few more components. It takes a lot of skill to restore the module and is beyond most repair shops. A whole new module costs about $155 from Full Compass. The amp is an HCA2400 module, but you MAY need the Behringer part number to order it from Full Compass. Also please read my tip on Fixya for PMP mixers regarding the hazard when using 1/4 inch plugs from the Speakon connectors... the Channel A sleeve is the "hot", not the tip and if you ground the sleeve, goodbye channel A...

Need part # for the Program Push Button Control for the effects on a PMX2000 power mixer


You will have to call Behringer in Woodinville WA to get the Behringer part number. Their phone is:

(425) 939-3200
With the number plus an incident number that Behringer will give you, you then call FullCompass who is the parts distributor... Then, unless they have it in stock, plan to wait a long time to get the part. FullCompass phone:

800-356-5844
Lots of luck... I have waited for three months for parts.

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.

New to the mixer world. i have a dicontinued pmp5000. can't get the bridge mode to work


You require a special cable with the Speakon copnnector wired a special way. Refer to your user manual for the correct pin connections to use bridged mode and then put the slide switch in the position closest to the effects display.

Refer to figure 4.6 on page 10 and figure 4.7 showing the connection for bridge mode.

NOTE: you cannot go below 8 ohm speaker on the bridge mode... that USUALLY means a singl speaker of 8 ohms... you CANNOT parallel two 8 ohm speakers.

The single speaker cable will plug into the "B" output connector. Remember bothe the barrel and the tip of the connector if using 1/4 inch plugs is HOT and grounding either inadvertently will fry the amp.

My Behringer Europower Pmp5000 Powered Mixer blew one of my speakers and then it burnt out one of the outputs.


Probably the channel A went. If you are fortunate, the power supply is still OK. There are protection circuits for the speakers, however you MUST use speakers that are rated at over 400 Watts. If you use smaller ones, they can get blown. There is a weakness primarily on insulation for channel A and an arc between layers of a circuit board can wipe out several transistors and a zener diode and sometimes a metering resistor. Once this happens, have unit serviced before using it again as further damage can result.
ALSO PLEASE read my tip I posted on FIXYA regarding a grounding hazard when using Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables... essentially the barrel of the 1/4 inch jack of the A channel is the hot lead, NOT the tip for that channel.

I just both the Europower pmp6000 powerd mixer and Eurolive b215xl speakers and i need help conecting the speaker to the mixer. I will be using it with some mics at a function in an hotel. How do I connect...


use 1/4 inch speaker cables. hook one speaker up to "main 1 R" out and the other to "main 1 L" out. if you have additional main speakers, hook them up the the "main 2" outputs.

look for the "bridge amp mode" switch and move it to the "main L- main R" position.
