In a word, you DON'T... The main fader is the ONLY volume control in the loop going into the TAPE inputs.

If you need another volume control, then either use volume control if availlable on the tape/MP3 player.

Your other option is to use a splitter cable from the MP3 into one of the stereo input channels which do have level controls.

Now if you want to have the tape input level INDEPENDENT of the main slider, that is not really possible either. Adding a mixer AFTER the mains could accomplish this, but that is extra hardware.

When setting up xr8600 is it best to start mains and monitors master at 0DB?


1. Turn the main and monitor volumes all the way down (off). Plug a cd player into channel 9/10 and play a track of music of your liking. With the main/monitor volumes still off, adjust the gain on 9/10 until the clip light turns on, then back it down until the clip light just turns off. Put the channel volume at 12 o' clock.
2. With the music still playing, turn up the mains to the desired listening level first, and then adjust the graphic eq until the music sounds good in the room. Remember or mark the position of the volume control. Do not use the channel eq on 9/10 for music that has been mastered properly, leave the eq flat. Once this step is completed then you have now set the main eq.
3. Repeat the same for monitors. Turn off the main volume and then bring up the monitor main volume to the desired level first, then set eq. Now your monitor eq is set properly. Remember or mark the position of the monitor volume.
4. Set up microphone - plug a mic into channel 1 with volume all the way down. Speak or sing into the microphone and adjust the GAIN until you see the clip light, then back down a litttle on the gain. Put the monitor and main volumes back up to the mark from step 2. Now adjust the volume and monitor send on the mic channel to the desired loudness first before adjusting the mic channel eq. Use subtractive eq method to minimize distortion and feedback. ...i.e. if the mic is bassy then turn down the lows, do not ADD highs. If the mic needs bass, turn down the highs.

How to hook up to home amp


If home amp has a phono input and you have no turntable, plug the output of the MP3 player into the phono input and begin with the volume turned all the way down. If you do not have a phono input, you can plug something like a DJ mixer in to get that extra level of amplification you want for comfortable listening. If you do that, the MP3 player would plug into the turntable input and the mixer output would go to the available line level input of the home amp.

The CD player has either the coaxial connector, which is not common for home amps, and a pair of "RCA" jacks (right and left) which are.
The CD output can be connected to any avaialble line level input, such as anunused "Aux", "Tape In" "MD/VCR audio in, etc.

You would get about 200 Watts RMS per side using 8 ohm speakers. "Not much volume" is very relative. With the two 12 inch speakers you should be able to fill a 600 to 1000 sq ft room nocely.

When I hook up my passive mains and monitors in the mono1/mono mode....mains on B and Monitors on A outputs I don't seem to have much output volume on the mains.....my monitors are okay but main sliders...


Please read my tip on fixya regarding a HAZARD of PMP mixers when using Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables. Essentially, the barrel of the 1/4 inch on A channel is the "hot" and one had better never let it touch a grounded point.

Now to your problem...You may have to run the MAIN sliders near the unity setting (zero Db).

It is important to set the trims correctely. For each of the inout channels, push the PFL button for the channel down and set the trim control so LED display is just below the clipping point at maximum input for the channel.

Ideally you would like the channel sliders to be in the vicinity of unity gain when system is balanced. Running the sliders way down results in a poor signal to noise ratio. Next you adjust the channel monitor knobs to set the monitor mix. These should be about 12 o'clock if possible to get decent signal to noise ratio.

For the MON/Mon1 mode, do NOT use the "Surround" simulator OR the "Speaker processor" ... make sure those swithces are off. You will probably want to PAN the channels fully to the MAIN side "B" which MAY be the reason your level seems low.

Remember the individual channels are about 400 Watts and 600 peak. Frankly myself I prefer to use both MAIN channels to the main speakers and use an external amp for the monitors OR use powered monitors for monitor use.

How do i hook up my jbl-jrx112m monitors to my pmp6000 so i can control sound volume,i have sound but only main control not monitors


You have to make a choice... you can tie two main speakers to the "B" channel and the two monitor speakers to the "A" channel.
The speaker configuration slide switch is set to MON1/MONO. The main slider controls the volume of the mains and the MON1 slider controls the level of the monitors in conjuction with the rotary MON1 knobs for each channel.
Each output should not be loaded heavier than 4 ohms. This would be a max of two 8 ohm speakers for each output.

The MON faders ONLY control the output to the MON L and MON R jacks, NOT the split use of MAIN/MON outputs. You MIGHT try varying the MONO fader and see if it varies the MON part of the split output.
Best to use the unit as MAIN L and R to main speakers and use a stereo amp or POWERED monitors driven from the MON L and R jacks. With this, the MON faders will control your monitors as you would like them to.
ALSO make sure ALL equipment connected together is powered from teh same recepacle power system. Powering interconnected equipment from receptacles at opposite ends of the room is asking for damage due to ground bounce and faults.
PLEASE read my tip on here about a HAZARD of speaker polarity if you use Speakon to 1/4 inch cables.

My mic output is very weak. Music comes out great. I have to set the levels all the way up to get any mic sound and usually there is a lot of clipping. You need to almost scream to get any sound with a...


Thiis amp has plenty of gain for mics. Make sure your mic has a good XLR to XLR cable (balanced) and connects to the XLR input connectors. If you have 1/4 inch jack cables that aren't TRS balanced on the mics, get rid of them and get XLR's.

Then push the PFL button down (LED will light red) for a single channel with a mic and adjust the trim (top knob for the channel) so that the level peaks without clipping on the main LED display when highest input to the mic is being generated. You should not get clipping then during operation.

After that you use the slider tio adjust the level for the mic. The MAIN slider should be at least up around -10 to zero during operation. If your main slider is way down, then you haven't balanced your channels properly. Do the same for each channel as the instructions for the mic above. If the gains of the other inputs are too high and the MAIN slider too low, this is what is causing your problem.

Typically the trims for mics like Shure 58 are about 3 o'clock.

High level guitars may have trims anywhere from 9 to 3 o'clock.

Ideally you will want your channel sliders to be between -10 and zero.

With the AB switch at the center position Mon1/Main you control the volumes INDIVIDUALLY with the MON pot for each input that is a couple positions above each of the input sliders.
