Question about Mackie 1642-vlz3 (16-ch 4-bus Compact Mixer)
I would be surprised with all 16 mics active that you can't reach near a clipping level... Of course if you only have 8 mics active we would not expect to reach unity levels. Make sure this board is powered from the same receptacle as your amps. Powering it from building power at opposite ends of a room from where the amps are powered is asking for damage from ground bounce. The pros run a power back to the mixer alongside the snake.
Your trims will be fairly wide open for dynamic mics and your faders should be around unity during use. It is nice if the main fader can be around 50% or more. Use BALANCED lines everywhere including those running to the amps.
