Hi cliff

Connect either of the XLR DI output of the Behringer directly to a MIC IN channel on the Powerpod using a standard Microphone cable. If you wish to push a stereo sound then connect both(L + R) of the XLR DI outputs from the amp... that's about all you need to do. The only reason you need to use stereo(both XLR Outs) from the Behringer is if you want a full stereo FX output from the amp, otherwise you can get away with 1 connected. You may need to back the gain off for those channels on the power pod. You can get a manual for the Powerpod from here

and user manual for the acx900 here

Hope this has helped you, If not, feel free to ask any questions. Cheers.

Phonic Powerpod 1860 - One channel xlr input stopped working. What could cause that?


Several things could cause this... connecting it to a piecee of equipment powered from a different wall receptacle cound result in ground bounce on the building power that could destroy the input circuits. Another thing is if a static discharge hit it... There are bypass capcitors at the inout that could have shorted. Of course the fader could have failed...

I don't understand how to use the 'tone' controls


Watch vidoes on "mixer setup". Don't worry if they are not your exact model as the principles are essentially the same among the various types. EQ controls for the channels are "flat" when they are all set to 1 o'clock. The lower one reduces or boosts the bass, the next the midrange and the high the trebles. SOme have a midrange EQ frequency which adjusts the cnterpoint of the midrange frequency. Leave this at 12 o'clock until you get familiar with the rest if your unit happens to have that extra control.

Where can I purchase a replacement foot (one of four) for the rear panel of a Phonic Powerpod K-12 powered mixer?


Getting EXACT replacement case parts is almost impossible without going to the manufacturer. I would suggest seeing if you can find SUITABLE replacements at your hardware store... even ones intended for furniture. If the originals just pushed through holes in the base, those tear and get lost regularly... Get some suitable ones and mount with machine screws washers and nuts. Watch the screw length doesn't hit the board. Here is an example;

http://hardware.hardwarestore.com/28-453-furniture-glides/furniture-glides-with-screw-656602.aspx

Note these come with wood screws but use machine screws to mount to the base plate instead.

ANOTHER option is to use the adhesive backed "Bumpons" as they are called. Replace them as necessary. They come in different sizes and thicknesses and are available in hardware stores near where they have the furniture glides. When they fall off or get lost, just stick a new one on.

Why do i have echo when i play music on my phonic powerpod 820 mixer


Visit this link to download the manual if you don't have it already. https://phonic.box.net/shared/crqxhlhmmz
This mixer has a multi-effects processor onboard, but the key is understanding the audio signal chain. There is a chance that you have your input audio going through an undesired effect, but without knowing your setup (input source, connections, mixer settings), it would be difficult to pinpoint the problem.

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.

I have speakers plugged into my phonic powerpod 820 right now but I want also to have the output of the mixer to go through an instrument amp, is this possible? If so, where do I connect the instrument amp...


Hi,
Yes it's possible. I'm assuming you'd like to use the keyboard amp as a "monitor". In which case, take a 1/4inch TS (instrument cable) jack out of "Aux Send" into the input of your keyboard amp. Make sure the keyboard amp is turned up to a good level and that the Master SEND is turned up on the Desk.
Now you can make your own "monitor mix" for on stage use without effecting the F.O.H mix by turning up the aux pot (knob) on each channel you use.

You can use the CTRL ROOM output also, but make sure it's not giving a "Powered Output" from the internal amplifier in the mixer as you will damage the keyboard amp.
