Question about Behringer Europower Pmp5000 Powered Mixer Pmp5000

1 Answer

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 are near the top...Is this normal??..In the Main L/R mode I have good volume on the mains but of course no controls on my parallel monitors.I have decent speakers Yorkville NX600 for mains and Peavey PR10 for monitors.

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.

    been looking everywhere for this... i just hooked up my PMP6000 to my brand new JBL EON's 305 (non-active), stereo (one cable for A and B) using Speaking to 1/4" cable.

    My output level was also VERY SOFT.. ok, not VERY soft, but surprisingly soft output for some JBL EON 15's!

    I am running powered monitors, so all the power should be going to the mains.

    I PFL'd the levels correctly, all the behringer "extras" such as the surround , etc are OFF.

    Line channels are past Unity and the Main slider is WAAAY too far up..

    please help!

I think this section of his response is the key I can't wait to get back to my setup and see if this fixes my problem of with the low output of the mains...

How to hook up passive monitors to a powered board


As opposed to front of house? If you want separate amplification of a monitor system then use either the aux send channels or sub-channel outputs or control room outputs (but check these are not amplified already) connected to a separate amplifier to power your passive monitors

How to wire up outboard effects, poweramps to mixer. Out to sub, mains, monitors each with own poweramp, and several outboard effects, eq's, comp/lim/gate, sonic maximizer, quadraverb, crossover.


I'd need to know what mixer you have, to know if there is a [line out] connection socket and an [internal amp in] connection socket.

"each with own poweramp" I presume means the ep1500's and NOT that the speakers are active (ie containing amps)

***If any of your speakers are active, ask the question again, with more detail.***

So if all your speakers are passive, I offer the following.

I assume there is [effect send] and [effect return] on the mixer

effect send>quadraverb>effect return

mixer line out > eq > compressor > sonic maximizer > crossover

sub output of crossover> amp > sub
high output of crossover to mixer's internal amp input
mixer's speaker output > main speakers

monitor output > other side of eq (>other side of compressor if desired, but use sparingly ) > other side of sonic max if it is true stereo , otherwise skip > amp > monitors

If your mixer doesn't have an input to its internal amp, we are "back to the drawing board"
With questions like this it pays to give as much detail as possible; model and make of each component etc
I have done my best with the the info you have provided.
Don't feed amp outputs into powered speakers

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.

Monitors not audible with Behringer 1680S


Assuming you're trying to power the monitors from this unit as well as the mains.....Confirm that the amp switch is in the middle position which splits the internal amps....one for main and one for monitors. Output A would power the monitors.... B would power the mains.

Hi, How do I connect a powered subwoover to my PMP 6000 when i have connected 1 pairs of passive speakers to Output B and 1 pair of passive monitors to Output A . Ampmode switch set to Monq1 and Mono...


hi,
this mixer has output's from cd/tape(rca plug) that can be used to connect an additional amp for output to a sub. It is designed to use for recording but may also server as a pre-amp output to an external amp of choice.

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.

My pmp6000 wont work in mon1/ mono mode. I have one speskon channel going to two mains and the other to two monitors Can't get sound.


OK... from the schematics it appears that when in mon1/mono mode you use ONLY the MON1 gain controls, including the channel MON1's and the MON1 slider. Make sure you have each of those turned up as needed. In this mode, MON2,s and the MON2 slider are unused. The MONO slider controls the MAIN output.

You seem to be the expert - i just got my pmp 4000,,,,i'm a little confused,,i understand the concept of side A for mains,,(mono) and plugged monitors into side B -got sound out of both mains and...


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.

Hello, What is the proper way to connect an Ashly XR1000 Crossover and a Pyle Pro PTA1400 power amp to my Peavey XR8600 so I can use 2 subs? The subs are not powered, but do have a passive crossover...


Here is a link to the manual:http://www.peavey.com/assets/literature/manuals/00513220_7.pdf I didn't look at the manual for the crossover but this is probably the way I would do it. Look at page 13 in the manual : Come out of the Main out (31 in the diagram) into the main in of your crossover. Go out of your crossover Hi and Mid out setting back into Power amp In 1 (labelled 32 in the diagram). Hook your speakers that you normally use to the output jacks on the back of the Peavey. Make sure you match the output impedances. Go out of your crossover low output into the Pyle power amp and out of the Pyle into your subs. Make sure the impedance ratings of all your speakers match the output impedances of your amps. You will only be running in Mono mode as that is the signal output of the Peavey mixer. You can run faux stereo by using the Main monitor Out as 1/2 the pair and the Main Out as the other 1/2 to both channels of the crossover but you won't be getting a true stereo pan mode.
