I have a new set up and i need a step by step instruction on how to set up the mixer to the amp and the decks to the mixer/amp


if this is a dj type set up, the mixer should have a main output (RCA or XLR), that is what you connect to the input on the amp, each deck should have RCA outputs, depending on if they are turntables or cd players, plug the turntables into the phono channel inputs on the mixer and if they are cd players, plug them into the line inputs on the mixer

I have a Behringer PMH660M powered mixer. After some hours sitting idle both the outputs stop working. The mixer part continues as is shown by the mixer meters continuing to operate. By turning the power...


I think Mute signal activated in your power mixer. This can be due to some cold solder joints or lose connection in unit.
Need qualified service technician to check it physically.

How can I use my Marantz 4070, Quadro Integrated Amplifier as an amp for guitar, microfons and so on?


you need to buy a small mixer like the 4 channel beringer (about 90 bucks) you would plug its output into the inpur of your Marantz and will then be using it as a power amp. It should work great and the little berringer even has phantom power I believe.

How do you hook up a peavey pv14 usb mixer to non-powered speakers?


You'll need to provide an amplifier if there isn't one built into the speakers. All the mixer does is combine audio sources and provide a line-level output. A separate amplifier is needed to boost that to speaker level. If you're just using the mixer in a home setting and you have a stereo receiver or home theater system, you can feed the mixer's output to an auxiliary input on the receiver and use the speakers you have connected to that.

We bought a sound system and did not get instructions on how to set it up so we need to know how to plug in our yamaha c112v speakers adn yamaha monitors to our yamaha mg24 mixer please help!!!!


If all you have is monitors, speakers and the mixer, you are missing a vital component as you have no amplifiers.
You'll need at the very least one amplifier for the c112v's and another one for the monitors (chances are your monitors aren't 350W, so you don't want to drive them off the main amp, plus you need them controlled separately from the mixer). If you are intending to run sub-woofers as well, you will need an even beefier amplifier than the main amp for those.
You didn't mention the handling capacity of the monitors, but I recommend about a 300W per channel amp with 350W speakers - that way if you run the amp into clipping, it won't shred your speakers.

How to connect microphone to Yamaha RX-V365 as a PA system.


Home-theatre receivers don't have microphone inputs. If you want to use the receiver as an amplifier in PA system, you need to use some kind of mic pre-amp or a mixer with mic inputs.
For PA mixer is needed anyway almost every time and all mixers have at least one mic input (with a pre-amp). Mixers have line-level output(s), which you can connect to the analog input of receiver.
Using receiver as an amp in PA has advantage that you have 5 channel amp. When using high sensitive PA speakers (as oposed to less sensitive Hi-fi home speakers), you can get good performance with the power rating of receiver. You could even use 2 separate channels for subwoofers and 2 channels for satelite speakers - but for that you would need a receiver with 5.1 analog inputs and special device called crossover which would divide the output from mixer into low-frequency signal and high-frequency signal which you would then connect to the front and rear analog inputs. But with RX-V365 you can use only 2 channels with analog input

How do I connect it right? I'm having problems in connecting cables from the mixer to the amplifier


A generic question will get a generic answer.

It would go into a typical Tape Monitor loop on an integrated amp or receiver. In's to Out's. If we're talking about a power amp, the mixer would go between your sources and it.

I want to connect a compressor to the mixer but i dont know how can you help me?


Depending upon the compressor and mixer, there are a couple of options. The compressor should be between the output of the mixer and the input of the power amps. To accomplish this, you can use either an insert cable or 2 audio cables. Some mixers have an insert point for each output. These are usually marked as inserts adn use TRS cables (Tip/Ring/Sleeve). These cables are essentially the same as stereo 1/4" cables. If the compressor can take that, than all you need is a single insert cable. This insert cable will insert the compressor directly so that you still connect the mixer output to the amp as you woud without the compressor. If not, then you will need two 1/4" standard audio cables to connect the mixer output L/R to the amp input L/R.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Have a peavey-xr-600b peavey mixer amp. i get aloud hum and noise and cracking when plugging speaker jacks.


Hi chillin884

Not a good sign. Something has gone wrong with the output stages of your Peavey. It is not a good idea to continue plugging it in as damage may occur to your speakers. I suggest you take it to a decent music gear repair guy for a look see and give you a quote to repair These heads, like all Peavey gear, are pretty solid and worth repair. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news like this, good luck
