I would need to know what brand / model deck for better details. If the meters are moving you have signal, what isn't clear is are you feeding tape playback through the mixer. There should be send for stereo, if it is stereo, and that can be attaced to RCA left / right on the mixer. Or if 1/4" mono or stereo,plug into the channels needed.That way you can use the mixer for volume control for tape out.

Hi, use the RCA/Phono connections for the Tape In & Out. The level will be set by the Master/Main fader. If that is not so convenient (& assuming it's a PMP4000?) there should be a "Main 2" output & connections with the level controlled separately to Main 1 via a Knob / Rotary control over to the right above the "Mono" fader... Hope that helps... Good Luck!

The passive speakers connect to the main outputs using Speakon connectors on the back.

You will use Balanced connections (TRS) to the main L and R connections on top to the active speakers. Daisy chain 3 active on each of the L and R top connectors.

You can download a user manual if you don't have one.

ALSO PLEASE read my tip regarding a hazard when using Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables on channel "A" in the FIXYA tips for PMP mixers. The barrel of the channel A 1/4 inch is the HOT side of the signal to the speaker instead of the tip.

SOURCE: where (on-line) can we find download for advanced

There really ISN'T and "advanced" manual... Everything you need to know is in the user manual that comes with it... Service manual with schematics will not give you much you can use unless you are into electronics detail.

PLEASE read my tip about Behringer PMP mixers on here regarding a hazard if you use Speakon to 1/4 inch cables or adapters. Essentially, the sleeve, NOT the tip is the HOT lead for a speaker on channel A. Ground it inadvertently and goodbye channel A amp.

Be VERY careful of speaker leads with this amp as it is easy to pop a channel IF a speaker comes loose or shorts. Loop cables through the handlesto avoid cables being yanked out or breaking plugs.

We are trying to purchase a pmp mixer for our church choir. What's the difference between the pmp 3000 and the pmp 4000? Thanks!


The answer is "Not Much"... they upped the rating for power out and added 1000 to the model number... I don't know of any circuitry difference between them... it would probably be minor. Functionality is the same.

hi,
this mixer has output's from cd/tape(rca plug) that can be used to connect an additional amp for output to a sub. It is designed to use for recording but may also server as a pre-amp output to an external amp of choice.

Not enough sound, im using a pmp 3000 with rhino rh2112 250 watt speakers its up at max and struggling badly at very small venues


The speakers would receive about 250 watts max each from the PMP3000 since they are 8 ohms.
That is quite a bit and should fill a 1000 square foot venue with plenty of sound. The type of program material will affect what sound level you can get to. I would recommend you procure a sound meter and measure the sound level. You should be able to get 90 to 95 DB out of these easily. I use a PMP 3000 with two Peavey 15 inch with horn cabinets and can get 98 DB in a 30 by 40 foot room easily. You need to respect the OSHA sound level limits and a sound meter will help you comply. The 12 inch speakers would probably be too small if you are running a lot of bass through them. Please read my tip on Fixya regarding a hazard of the PMP mixers. Essentially, when using 1/4 inch adapters or plugs from the speakon connections of the PMP's, channel A sleeve or barrel is the hot whereas the tip of channel B is the hot. This is not documented in the user manual and if you inadvertenly ground the sleeve of channel A you will likely blow the amp.

What is the best powered mixer to go with my b215xl 1000watt speakers


The PMP 6000 or 4000 depending on how many channels and effects you need is a good match.

READ THE SPECS... the speakers are capable of 250 Watts RMS (not 1000 as that is PEAK) power... like the ridiculous claims of 4 Hp for shop vacuums that run on 120 volts.

The 4000 and 6000 will generate about 250 Watts per side into 8 ohm speakers so is well matched for the B215XL speakers... by matched we mean the speakers are not likely to get blown out.

Connect a 500 Watt per side amp to the speakers and you will be buying replacements in short order.

ALSO realize how much sound you will get from the speakers.. they will cover a 2000 square foot venue fairly well. I suggest you get a sound level meter so you have a metric of levels when you are using the system. If you need more sound, you can add a second set of the speakers in parallel.

Where to connect my Subwoofer to PMP 2000


This is NOT convenient with the 2000 unit...ASSUMING you subwoofer has mid and high frequency cutoff built in, what you should do is to mix the two preamp signals in a small mixer and send those to a POWERED subwoofer OR to an amplifier that is driving the subwoofer.

Pmp 4000 setup for active mains and monitors


If you only have powered speakers for both mains and monitors, you will NOT use the Speakon outputs on the back.

You will connect USING BALANCED TRS audio cables from the MAIN L and R jacks on the top of the unit to your powered main speakers and also connect the monitor speakers by TRS balanced connections to the MON1 and MON2 1/4 inch jacks on the top deck of the unit.

POWER ALL the speakers AND the mixer from the same receptacle or power source/conditioner.
This may mean running an extension cord alongside your audio snake from the stage. Failure to do do this can cause damage due to exceeding the common mode noise (ground bounce) of different power sources.

Leave the speaker slide switch in the Main L/R.

Adjust the rotary knobs for Mon1 and MON2 for each channel to proportion each to the monitor "mixes" which you will control overall with the MON1 and MON2 sliders.
You will use the MAIN slider to control the mains level.

To set the trims for each channel, push the PFL so only that LED illuminate red... then at max inout level for the channel, use the LED bar graph on the right side so it is just a little below the clip level where the top LED's of the bar graph do not illuminate.

I have four active and two passive speakers how do i hook up to amp


Assuming they are ALL mains and not for monitors connect this way:

Connect the passive to the A and B powered outputs. Please read my tip on Fixya regarding hazard of grounding speaker leads on channel A of PMP mixers.

Connect each pair of active speakers to the Main L and R 1/4 inch jacks using TRS balanced cables. Power these speakers from the SAME receptacle or source, even if it means running an extension cord to your mixer from where the actives are plugged in. FAILURE to do this creates a hazard of ground loops and ground bounce that can damage equipment. The Main L and R 1/4 inch jackls can drive more than one active speaker... these are line level signals. Make sure to use TRS balanced cables for this.
