I have a Behringer ACX 900 acoustic amp which I would like to connect it to my Phonic powerpod K12 Plus mixer/amp
The Behringer as 2x balanced line outputs (XLR) with a built in DI box.
Please could you advise me how to do this.

Re: connecting a guitar amp to a mixer amp
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

The rule of thumb is you control your audio on the low side. That means you plug your mics, tuners, audio sources into the pre-amp and then the pre-amp into the equalizer/mixer ant finally the mixer into the power amp and the amp into the "large honkin' speakers". The inter connects on the low side (between the source, the mixer and the power amp are usually done with RCA plugs. Use a good quality set of cables to get good tight connections and solid grounding. AUDIO SOURCE?MIXER?POWER AMP--- heavy speaker wire sized to your SPEAKERS.
If you have fader capabilities...and there is still signal "leaking" through...you may try reducing your input gain on each channel of your mixer...as well as make sure you have a good ground connection between your components.
hi, check the power outlet socket to which the amp and mixer is connected. if there is any loose contact in that power socket, this problem can occur. try to use a good surge protector with emi filter for connecting the amp and mixer. ok
Hello Sir, Hi, the amplifier best suited for it would be a Behringer also, the EP2500 would be a match, and the eurolive B815neo speakers, but this cost a lot, any amplifier and a corresponding speaker will do. for your electric guitars or acoustics the GTX30.
If you will use your 15" speakers, match it with a right amplifier, you did not mention its watts rating, If your speakers are 250 watts, then buy an amplifier slightly higher that 250 watt,
In bridge mode, the left and right amplifiers are in essence connected together. Typically, the speaker connections are to the positive connectors for each channel for this mode. WIth the speakers still connected, you essentially shorted the outputs to ground and smoked the output section. The unit will detect this now and not turn on the output section. Your unit is in what is usually called "protect" mode. This unit will require repair. Expect to have the output transistors replaced at the very least. I would estimate around $16-$40 for parts.
Hi Dave ok,you go out of comp(this can be headphone OR audio out on your laptop),into mixer (audio inputs,)then go out of mixer (audio out) into input channel on your amp ,the speakers are obviously already wired up to your amp?
The problem is most likely between the turntable and mixer. You need to be sure that the turntable is connected to a phono input. I'm not sure if your mixer has one. If not, you need to have a phono pre-amp between the turntable and the line input on the mixer.
Check that first and get back to us if you still have problems/questions.
There are 2 ways to have an EQ in the system. If the mixer (1204) has inserts for the mains, you can use a set of insert cables to connect the EQ. If not, connect the Output of the mixer to the Input of the EQ and the Output of the EQ to the Input of the Amp.
The insert cables will allow you to electrically connect the EQ as described above only using a single set of cables. These cables are 1/4" balanced or stereo at one end (Tip-Ring-Sleeve) and dual XLR at the other. You will need 2 insert cables, one for right and one for left.
