Suddenly the monitor one output jack has no sound. If I turn the Monitor one slider all the way up I can hear a very low sound with distortion. The monitor output works fine.

Make sure the appropriate channel rotary knob MON1 knob is turned up for the channels you want into MON1. ALSO test other channels if they can be sent to MON1. The MON jacks are TRS with the tip as the hot and the sleeve as resistor to ground.

Hopefully you have used good practice and have ALWAYS powered whatever you are driving from the MON1 out from the same receptacle as the PMP5000. If not, ground bounce MAY have destroyed the driver in thee PMP5000. They USUALLY don't tell you these things in the user manuals, so it is up to us electricaal engineers to educate.

FIRST plug in a set of headphones and see if sound comes out (it will only be one side and fairly low volume, usually the left). If it does, then cabling and whatever amp you have for the MON1 has a problem. I have schematics and can help you troubleshoot a bit.

Also PLEASE read the tip I have posted on here about a grounding hazard of the A channel when using Speakon to 1/4 inch cables.

I'm using 2 different power amps and the monitor (M) will not work unless I have the L=R sliders up or I can put the M send in the R and it will work the monitors separately. Why and what am I doing w


1st....the output section, "M" stands for mono. The A&E does not have "monitor" sends per say but instead calls them "Aux's." Adjust the proper Aux for the input channel 1-16 and use the Aux output section (row of knobs above output sliders) as the master volume. By using Aux 1-4 (and with more amps) you could send 4 discrete monitor mixes to four different band members. Bass likes his monitor strong but doesn't want to hear other members while guitarists want to hear only himself and the singing drummer...etc.

HOW DO I HOOK UP PASSIVE MONITORS TO BEHRINGER PMP4000


If you are using the amp in stereo mode, then you will require a separate amp for the monitors and the input of that amp are taken using BALANCED TRS cables from the monitor jacks. If you are using the amp as MONO and monitor, then connect NO MORE than two 8 ohm speakers to the Speakon plug on the back labeled for use as monitor. Refer to your user manual... they have detailed photos of the connections. If you lost your manual, you can download another from the Behringer site. There are settings you need to do to configure the unit after connecting your speakers. The small slide switch has to be set to the center position for Main/Mon. Make sure it is centered as many people have had it slightlyu off and the system will NOT pass audio. You need to set each channel "monitor 1" level control to send the monitor signal to the MONITOR mixing bus. You will then use the MONITOR 1 slider to control the amount sent to the monitor. Be VERY careful of grounding the sleeve of 1/4 inch jacks that originate at the Speakon power amp outputs as the SLEEVE of channel A is the HOT side and you can blow the power amp for the channel... it is EXPENSIVE to repair.

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.

I Have mackei fx 8 i use to connect 2 main via the main baleced outputs. i am planning buy a stage monitor bou not sure how make a connection for monitor


Buy a powered stage monitor and gonnect to the MON jack. You will select the channels to go to the monitor with the AUX knobs and the overall level with the MON slider.

Use BALANCED lines to the powered monitor... This is a TRS plug at the mixer end for sure...

REMEMBER to power ALL interconnected equipment from the same receptaacle or source, even if it means running an extension from where your speakers are plugged in to the mixer !!! The ground bounce between power receptacles within a building can destroy your equipment's sensitive input circuits.

I hooked up my Mackie MR5 Monitors to my MacBook Pro through an audio interface, I use it to record my band in the studio I use out of my basement. Except everytime I try to use the monitors they give me...


try hooking headphones to the output and see if the crackling is still there.

then, try it with the speakers, at a lower computer voume level and higher speaker volume level. perhaps the headphone output is too loud and distorting in the speaker inputs.

If the master output lights go above green (into yellow) the sound becomes slightly distorted even at low speaker levels. i have cleaned the output jacks but it is still distorted


Does the distortion ALSO appear when you listen with headphones? If not, the problem may be downstream. The driver for the mute control line to the mute transistors may have a problem. Make sure the mute is off.

I'm using garageband and for some reason it won't record on my computer all the time it has worked previously , but i can't get it to record in the moniter input


It is not clear what your configuration is. The monitor OUTPUTS are monaural. For recording you should be using the MAINS OUTPUTS and those NEED to use the the MAIN1 IF you are using TRS balanced lines, else if you record with unbalanced cables you need to use the MAIN2 outputs...

Monitor outputs are intended for stage monitors and vary ONLY with the monitor controls at each channel and the monitor sliders and do NOT vary with the sliders.

Hello; I have a used Behringer pmp5000 mixer. The


Without knowing how you have your monitors configured it is hard to analyze what you have posted.

In brief, SW3 on the schematic that selects MAIN L and MAIN R in the upper position, MAIN and MONITOR in the middle, and bridged in the lower is used to configure the internal amps.

In the upper position, the amp power outputs come from the mixed stereo bus and are simultaneously controlled as a stereo signal by the MAIN slider.

In the middle position MAIN and MONITOR, the left amp receives the signal from the mix bus and is controlled by the MAIN slider. The MONITOR output from the other side of the power amp is controlled ONLY by possibly the "MONO" slider.

The schematics are hard to decode and what is needed is a signal flow diagram.

For my uses, I don't try to use splitting the power amps between mains and monitor but prefer to use the mains together with SW3 in the upper position (Note your 27 may be refering to the user manual designation for same switch). I then use another small amp from the 1/4 inch MONITOR jacks whcih are under control of the MONITOR sliders.
Please note that the MIX for these two MONITOR channels is controlled by the MON1 and MON2 knobs for each channel.
