Please tell us all the specific models of the pieces in this scenario so we can know what you're talking about.

Do you mean an unpowered (normal) monitor speaker?

You CAN extend speaker wire through a speaker (amp plus to speaker plus, speaker minus to another speaker plus; that speaker minus back to amp minus) and this will INCREASE impedance some, which will in theory reduce effective power output, but, hey, nothing is free and your added speakers pushing more air may result in an improved loudness perception.

Going parallel from speaker to speaker may REDUCE impedance near or below the amp's spec and that could be dangerous to the amp. I'd go with the series option above.


In either case, if your speakers aren't identical in all respects one will probably sound louder than the other. Careful placement regarding distance from the listening position may resolve that for you but then it introduces imaging issues. Like i said, no free lunch.

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

I have recently acquired an XR600B . I printed out the documentation. Conversely to what I have seen answered here, it looks to me like they are suggesting the best/most powerful output will be acheived...


The speaker connections are on the BACK and are "Speakon" connectors... These are special plugs and these apparently can also accept 1/4 inch plugs. It appears that the MINIMUM impedance should be no less than 4 ohms, NOT 2 ohms. One of the back connectors is for the mains, the other ois for the monitor soeakers. The FRONT connections are line level which doi NOT drive speakers,

Aux1 and 2 are not working...what is the fix on the emx5016cf yamaha board


You are NOT trying to drive speakers from the aux outputs are you? These are LINE outputs that should be using TRS balanced lines to either powered speakers or amplifiers. Often these are used for monitors. The monitoors MUST be powered versions or use external amplifier if the speakers are passive..

I Have a Peavey XR 600B mixer. There are only 2 inputs in the rear for speakers. I want to add more speakers to be used as monitors or just have extra speakers. How can this be done? I only have...


First off it's outputs to your speakers. If you had an extra set of powered or amplified speakers you could "Y" cable your speaker outputs. Your passive speakers won't work without an amp. You really need powered speakers or an amp for your extra speakers. (if you had powered/amp'd speakers you could run them off one of you "aux" out for monitors. Do not daisy chain your speakers connecting twi together, you'll change the resistance/ohms and damage your speakers. Trust me, I do this for a living.

How do I hook up two powered 15's and two passive 15's to this mixer(1202-VLZ3)?


You connect the powered 15's using balanced cables. The passive speakers you will have to get an amplifier for as the mixer does NOT have a powered output, only line-level audio outputs.
The powered speakers MAY have audio line level outputs to continue to other powered speakers or, as in your case, external amplifiers to drive your passive speakers.
Remember to power ALL interconnected equipment from the same receptacle or source to avoid ground bounce faults that can destroy sensitive circuits in your equipment.

What type of sub-woofer can i add to my denon rcd-m37 system? (passive or powered). Is this information free or not.


Free or you can tempt us with $$. Your choice.

Self-powered would work but it would have to run on full-range amplifier (from the speaker posts) or Line Level signal (from the OUT RCA jacks) because this unit has no Sub-specific output. It's no bigge as the sub would naturally discard the higher frequencies via its own amp's and speaker

You didn't mention what brand powered mixer you have, HOWEVER MOST powered mixers also have a line level monitor and main output jacks. These are almost always 1/4 inch jacks. In any case you should be using BALANCED lines to the powered speakers using either XLR or TRS connectors on the ends. Please tell us what powered mixer you have so we can give you better answer regarding which connections to use. IF for some reason your mixer does NOT have line level outputs, you can use a high level Direct Box to condition the powered outputs to be sent to the powered speakers..
Also make sure ALL your interconnected equipment is powered by the same receptacle or source to avoid damaging due to ground bounce on utility lines and circuits. This often means running an extension cord from the stage where the powered speakers are along with a snake of the audio cables.

You haven't mentioned what model and manufacturer the mixer is. I will have to guess and say that the monitor out on the board isn't providing signal to the powered monitor or the monitor out on your board is powered and is now damaged by plugging a powered monitor into it. Carefully reread your manual and determine if the monitor out on your mixer is powered or line level. Reread also and make sure that the signal you are monitoring is assigned to monitor out, levelled correctly etc. If you find that the monitor out is passive (line level) try hooking it up to an external power amp and speaker. A guitar amp will do for testing purposes. Start with a low input volume on the amp. Also make sure that if it is passive to use a shielded cable from monitor out to input. If your board has powered monitor outs you can use a speaker cable from monitor out to speaker input (non powered monitor speaker).

Brightness


Possible failure of the screen control potentiometer which is found near the line output transformer( fly back -LOT).
Make sure that there is no loose connections on the CRT , failure of passive components ( resistor, capacitor) int he CRT also can bring about low brightness.
Check the grid voltages, the damper capacitors to the GRID must also be measured.
