Question about Behringer PMP2000 800 Watt 10 Channel Powered

1 Answer

How can a PMP 2000 be patched so that both internal amps are used to power the monitors, and the mains are sent from the mainpre-out to another power amp, while using one internal eq for the mains, and the other internal eq for the monitors, and using the internal effects for both the mains and the monitors?

No you can't quite do this since the EQ's are right before the power amps in the signal flow. The monitor output would drive two 8 ohm speakers daisy chained at roughly 300 watts RMS... I can't imagine needing more than that for a venue that is within the capabilities of this unit.
You can drive both power amps by the monitor output by setting the mon/main function on the switch and using a short TRS cable jumper between MONITOR PREAMP OUT and the RIGHT POWER AMP INPUT jack. Drive your mains from the LEFT PREAMP OUT. The EQ's will ONLY affect the monitors. Use an external EQ if you need to EQ the mains with this connnection. Use TRS balanced cables to the main amp and CONNECT all interconnected equipment to the SAME power source or receptacle, even if it means running an extension to the mixer.

Where are the main speaker cables connected to in a behinger europower pmp 2000 mixer amp


The Behringer PMP2000 uses Speakon jacks on the speaker cables. The outputs are located on the back panel. Which ones you use is determined by how you configure the mixer. The Main inputs are located on the right side of the face of the mixer.

I have a Behringer PMP5000, after a gig, I accidentlly plugged the outputs from an external power amp, into the monitor sends and powered up the unit. After I realized what I did, I powered down, corrected...


Yes, you blew out components associated with the monitor sends. There are several components including an RF bypass to ground and the driver IC, IC8 and a decoupling electrolytic cap. The repair is going to be extensive as it is likely you will have to remove ALL the panel knobs and screws to free up the circuit board for repair. I have worked on several mixers and have three of the PMP5000's myself and dread removing the main board. I am going to suggest something you might consider: Many of the PMP's fail either in their power supply or one of the amps. Due to the repair cost I would consider getting a scrap PMP with this problem and swapping out the panelboard for yours. Often you can get one with blown supply or power amp for around $200 and I suspect a repair shop is going to charge at least that to repair your unit... Then you will have a spare parts bucket as well.

I want to know how to send the signal from a Europower pmp 3000 to two external amps


Plug a balanced TRS (tip ring sleeve) cable into either main or monitor 1/4 inch jacks and then into the amp. ALWAYS use balanced lines AND power the mixer AND the amps from the SAME receptacle to avoid damage from ground loop bounce,

I have a Behringer PMP 6000 that I just bought. With the power amp switch in Main L/Main R it works fine, but if I switch it to Main/Mon, only the Mon works, nothing from the Main. Bridge mode doesn't...


Bridge mode you use chan B (left connector on the back) using a SPECIALLY wired Speakon. The impedance of a speaker connected as such CANNOT be LESS than 8 ohms.

In the Main/Mon mode, the two amplifiers are separated in function. The monitor knobs for EACH channel input control the mix sent to Channel A which is for the monitor speakers. The Mon1 controls the level sent to Output A for the monitor speakers. Mon2 fader is NOT used.

The individual channel faders control the main mix and the Main fader controls the level sent to Output B which goes to the main speakers.

I want to know where i can get a new fuse for my pmp 5000b-212XL powered mixer ?? and waht kind of fuse is it ?


If the fuse has blown DO NOT replace it without repairing the cause of the failure. You will likely do more damage to internal components. Take the unit for repair before applying power again. I have repaired many of these and first a failure occurs in one of the power amps... usually the A channel, then people replace a fuse that protected the power supply and that blows the power supply taking out another $30 of components and $200 labor. (they are hard to change) If the unit is under warranty, exercise your warranty immediately. There is a weak spot in the channel A power amp.

ALSO please read my tip on here about a hazard in PMP series powered mixers. It is in regard to using Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables... NOTE that the BARREL of a 1/4 inch speaker cable or adapter from the Speakon is the HOT side for channel A and if you ground it inadvertenly, goodbye channel A power amp!!!

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.

My PMP 3000 is a dead stick. Help? We were playing a gig and everything was sounding amazing, all of a sudden the volume on channel 2 (a Wireless Digital Reference Head Mounted Mic, gotta love drummers)...


Please note that the outputs of the MAIN L/R line outs are TRS balanced. If you plug mono plugs into these or connect to mono device you MAY have a problem of grounding out half of the drive internally. ALSO please read my tip on here regarding a polarity hazard of speaker cables of PMP amps if you do NOT have Speakon to Speakon cables, but have Speakon to 1/4 inch cables.

Likely one of the power amps in this has failed If no lights come on the unit now, then the power supply is wiped out as well. It takes about $50 worth of parts and quite a bit of skill and work to restore the unit, including carving out burned board and re-insulating. Likely a feedback occured on that mic and started the whole thing. Supersonic feedback is something most musicians are NOT aware of, but if the feedback is above the range of hearing, the amps can be strained as they may go to maximum power trying to amplify the sound you can;;t even hear. Piezo tweeters are capable of frequencies up to 30KHz.

If this is under warranty exercise it immediately.

Please read a tip I just posted regarding a hazard of the Speakon to 1/4 inch cables when used with these PMP mixers.

If you are using your main speakers as stereo, then you will need either powered monitor speakers OR an additional seperate amp for them. The mon outputs on the mixer are LINE LEVEL and are not driven by a power amp. Use TRS (balanced) interconnect cables from these to POWERED monitor speakers.

You can parallel your two mains providing the parallel impedance is 4 ohms or greater (two 8 ohms in parallel at most). The the monitor speakers can be paralleled and the switch set to Main/Mon so that one side of the power amp drives the mains and the other drives the monitors.

To prevent damage to the mixer, make sure all speaker leads are secure before powering the system. Run the speaker leads through the handles of the speakers to prevent inadvertent unplugging due to personell tripping over cables.

DO NOT use the bridge mode in your use.

Can I hook up 2 separate power amps to PMP3000? I


Better way... Connect the main speakers via the Speakons and then put a Power Subwoofer to one of the Monitor connections IF you are not using both stage monitors. If you need to kill the lows to the mains, use the EQ in the PMP-3000.

Use the EQ that is USUALLY on the subwoofer to kill the highs to the sub.

Lot less cables and hardware.

REMEMBER for equipment safety, power ALL interconnected equipment from the same source be it a receptacle or power distribution system.

Powering parts of a system from receptacles strewn around a room is asking for trouble of ground loops and ground faults.

I have a pmp 5000 and i cannot get any volume from my monitors what do i need to plug them in to and how do i turn up the volume


Assuming you are using BOTH power channels for your main speakers, you MUST use external, additional, amplifiers for the monitors. There are ONLY two power amps in the PMP5000.

The other option is to run mono for the mains and use the second power amp (comes out on the Speakon connectors) to drive the monitors. For this, the little slide switch has to be on the middle position.

Doing this, you have to adjust the monitor volume controls for each strip.
