Hi,
What happened is that the tweeter is blown. or a fuse in the speaker that goes to the tweeter has blown. Hopefully that is it.
There are several causes. Here is the theory so you understand how to match an amplifier to a speaker system.
Tweeters have a much lower capacity for amplifier power then woofers do. All professional speakers as well as home speakers reflect this.
You may ask exactly what blew the tweeter?
Usually what destroys the tweeter is not amplifier power but distortion. If someone is overloading the microphone, or the microphone is not trimmed to the mixer. You get distortion. This distortion is what caused the tweeter to blow. The signal must be clean. If you put too much power in, it may survive OK but if you put distortion in, it will more likely blow.
It is no shame for this to happen. I have had it happen to me when mixing a live show. You just have to watch what is happening and not turn things up too loud so the mixer or the amplifier distorts.
Also when doing sound work, the ears of an engineer naturally lower the perception of loudness. Engineers often keep turning up the equipment up more and more during a performance because they have lost the perception of loudness that was there when they started. That is also the reason that many professional studio musicians and drummers loose much of their hearing at an early age.
Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

Where do you have the gain control set on the Mic channel ?
If you have no issues with either the speakers or the Mic, and the gain control for the channel you have the Mic plugged into is set at a somewhat "normal" position, you might have a problem with the mixer itself.

It is likely you do not have the levels set correctly and are over driving the mixer. Reduce the trim settings using the PFL buttons and monitor the level indicators to insure you are not clipping.

With a condenser mic you CANNOT have any speaker in the room that the mic can hear of course. These mics are so sensitive. Your mixer and monitor speakers and recording will be in a separate room from the soundproof studio typically.

To monitor the system anywhere in the same room as the mic you MUST use headphones that do NOT leak sound or you will get feedback and distortion.

Mic output of my pmp3000 is weak,levels must all the way up to get any mic sound louder,Im using balanced xlr's for my mics, Is there any adjustable sensitivity adjustment inside the mixer? like the...


The answer to your question is NO, there is NOT an internal adjustment.

For many mics the trim is used full clockwise. Some higher output mics I use the trims are run at 3 o'clock which is mostly turned up. This is NORMAL for most mixers. If you don't have enough mic gain relative to other inputs, the fault is balancing the other inputs down and using higher setting on your MAIN slider.

If you use 8 ohm speakers then you can expect to get about 200 Watts of audio per side with this amp. You can get about 400 Watts RMS (600 Watts peak) using 4 ohm speakers.

The efficiency of the speakers makes a lot of difference in the sound level output/

The main mix controls ALL outputs simultaneously.

The mic channels are controlled individually by the sliders.

It sounds like you are on the verge of feedback where the mics are picking up the PA speakers.

Make sure you have loaded the support SW and make sure you have disabled ECHO as the mics may be looping back through the computer causing the rattle.

This is a STUDIO mic and CANNOT be used in the presence of speakers that are driven from its output.

There is special hardware processors to cancel feedback but you do NOT want to go there !!!

This condenser mic is to be used in a studio where performers wear earphones and NO monitors are present.

You should use a Shure SM58 or other CLOSE talking cardoids if you have speakers in the area.

The speakers are 8 ohm so you can probably get near the 400 Watt per side when connected to this mixer. You don't need bridge mode to get this and I would recommend not using it anyway. Whatever you do make sure the speakers don't get disconnected when running at high volumes as you will arc out the amp in the mixer... I know this as I fix them...

The feedback is NOT the fault of the mixer or speakers but instead of something picking up sound from the speakers and sending back to the mixer.

The mic must be well in back of the speakers (say at least 10 feet) to avoid this or you need to use anti-feedback hardware to avoid the problem or highly directional close talking mics. Reverberation off walls can also get back to mics and cause problem. I was able to use a wireless Peavey mic which seemed to disrupt the phase enough to never get into an oscillation even when in front of the speakers.
