Provided you have the right tools it is possible but any warranty would be voided if you take it apart.

Diagram of connecting power amp pv3800 to fx2 32 chan mixer

I'm not sure i understand you question? You would come out of the left and right XLR outputs on the board and into the two left and right XLR inputs on the amplifier. If you need more help and the dealer who sold you the gear isn't willing/able to assist you, Peavey customer service is quite good about walking people through problems. You can reach them at 877-732-8391.

How to repair peavey xr 600e that the plastic xlr pulled out????

This is a nasty problem and it will probably require you to access the back of the connector to support it while FORCING the plastic part back in. Forcing without supporting COULD crack the circuit board the connector is mounted on. You may have to replace the connector and that is NO fun as all the knobs have to come off to remove the board to replace the connector.

After a gig, I accidentally plugged my monitor sends 1 and 2 on my PMP5000 to the outputs of an external power amp, and powered it up.... I realized my mistake, plugged it in correctly, and now the monitor...

You blew the driver chip for those sends... NEVER plug the outputs of power amps into a mixer period... These chips are surface mounted and you will probably/maybe have to take the main board out of the mixer unless they are on the bottom side... I have several of these mixers and I might be able to uncover the main board of one I have open... Here is the schematic for the PMP5000:
Scroll down to "get manual" and click to download... IGNORE other download links on the page. It looks like you might have blown IC8 on page 5 which is one of the monitor sends. It is a standard NJM4580 chip... a little dual op amp that is SURE to be surface mounted. There is a possibility that capacitor C60 and its mate for MON2 may have been blown so check those. If the board has to come off the front panel... "enjoy" pulling off all the knobs, removing the nuts on the 1/4 inch connectors and possibly the screws from the XLR connector to get the panel separated... Been there, done that...Maybe you will luck out and the part will be mounted on the back of the board... Let me know if you need more help... fredy2 on

Hi, I need the pmp5000 schematic or service manual. Because my mixer smps is faulty.. (On the smps pcb following parts are problem : T12 - D24 and 25? R11 open - D6 and D9 are short - TOP221 ? ) Best...

Oh yeah... know them well The IGBT transistors fail, the sand coated resistors blow open... replace as a pair. The driver transistors get blown... 2SA1020's and 2SC2655-Y's. One or more of the gate speedup diodes for the IGBT's get blown. The switching reg chips, IR2153 is usually gone. and more...

Here is your service manual:

Scroll down to "get manual" and click to download. Ignore other "download links".

You will likely find that one of the power amps has shorted... been there, done that several times. Usually the channel A (rearmost) power amp shorts takeing out the 9140 Mosfets and other parts. Often an internal short between an interior and upper layer of the amp circuit board is the fault that causes all this. Use a light bulb (150 watt) in series with the power input when testing after repair. Use an isolation transformer when working on the supply for personal safety. When supply is running again, discharge the 70 volt source caps before plugging onto the amp to avoid welding arcs at the connectors. I have seen the supply hold charge for several days.

I need to know what kind of cable to use for my behringer vmx 1000 usb subwoofer port...i know that it's xlr connection and i have a subwoofer that takes 1/4 inch, so it will be xlr female from the mixer...

The 1/4 inch should be a TRS (balanced connector) You should find pin 1 of the XLR to the sleeve of the TRS. Pin 2 of the XLR can connect to either the tip or the ring of the TRS and pin 3 of the XLR to the other TRS tip or ring. The line should be an audio interconnect line, balanced. If that doesn't work get back to me as there may be another problem. Make sure all interconnected equipment is powered from the same receptacle or power conditioner !!! Remember these subwoofers are WAY down in frequency so unless you have stuff down in the 50Hz or less range it won't do much. That is LOW...

I have the Phonic powerpod 820. I ordered a Kuston powered floor monitor to add too the system. I know not to hook it up too the speaker outputs on the back of the mixer. So where do I hook up the powered...

You will plug an UNBALANCED 1/4 inplug cable into the MONI jack on the front of the unit. The other end will probably need to be an XLR plug to connect to the Kustom POWERED monitor. Please note that the UNBALANCED output of the Phonic is NOT good engineering practice. The Phonic stuff is normally low-end and they don't do everything correctely, although for a small system it should work. IF you get excessive hum from using a long cable to the Kustom with a "Kludged" unbalanced to balanced cable, you MAY need to use a DI box at the Phonic end to convert the unbalanced Phonic MONI output to a balanced line (XLR to XLR) for a longer run to the Kustom monitor. You might get a 1/4 inch TS to XLR balanced plug that has a transformer in it and use an XLR to XLR cable to the Kustom. Please note that having this plug in the Phonic hangs out and is easily bent over so I would recommend using a right angle connector at the Phonic and plug the 1/4 inch TS to XLR adaoter into that so the yanking of the XLR cable won't break the 1/4 inch adapter off in the Phonic.

How do I attach power amp to 1832 mixer

There are a number of configurations for a mixer like the 1832, the most common are PA system and Recording system. There are Main output jacks which carry the mix as summed in the main faders. These in a PA system would feed the pa amplifiers which drive the house speaker system for the audience. These connectors are XLR 3 pin type on the rear, intended for professional pa amplifiers which use balanced +4dbv line input level. Amplifier which have 3 pin XLR connectors for input signals can accept that high level signal. For home style HiFi amplifiers, the signal level is nominally -10DBv and balanced or unbalanced signal lines with 1/4in diameter phone plugs which are connected to the mixer by way of a second set of Main output connectors which are 1/4in phone jacks. Use whichever amplifier input level your amp has.
If you are not using it as a main PA house mixer, but using it for recording, the main output connectors go to a 2 channel recorder or computer sound card recorder. The power amp and your monitor speakers are connected to the connectors labeled "Control Room" (CTRL Rm). These output are useful for recording because the signal through the mixer can be monitored from several buses, Solo, main mix, selected by buttons provided. The buttons only affect the signal heard through the control room monitors, and not the main output which only sees the main mix so selecting "solo" does not interrupt the signal going to the recorder while the engineer in the control can be checking other signal paths through the board.

How do you "bridge" a d.j. 2 channel power amp? it

Very carefully... SInce the outputs are not specified as isolated, your speakers would be connected across the hots and the returns would be jumpered.
Then for the two inputs you would drive them balanced into the XLR connectors from a single balanced source and reverse pins 2 and 3 in ONE of the connectors of this Wye cable into one of the two inputs on the amp.

Intermittant LR output problems Main outputs (XLR

Intermittent problems cn be a real pain to find... BUT I want you to verify your use of the mixer and its connections as one can cause the output drivers to latch up due to ground bounce.

Make sure your outputs go to the power amps AND into balanced inout at the amps... either XLR or TRS connectors.

Make sure that the amps are POWERED from the same receptacle as the mixer... even if you have to run power back to the mixer. If you power the mixer from a different receptacle at the other end of the room, ground bounce of the safety ground MAY exceed the common mode drive of the mixer and cause the output drivers to latch up or even be destroyed!!!
