Just use the main left and right outputs of the behringer to run xlr (3 prong balanced) to 1/4 inch (looks like a big headphone plug) cables into the inputs of the crown amp. the mixer has the xlr outputs and the amp has 1/4 inch inputrs, sop the cables will have to reflect that on both ends. run the outputs of the amp (rca outputs, i believe, you may have to get a rca plug to 1/4 inch jack adapter, and then use a 1/4 inch speaker cable) to the inputs of the speakers, again, the amp has rca outputs and the speakers will likely have 1/4 inputs, so you will have to address that wil an adapter. have each speaker in its own channel.

Marshall MB4410, with low volume gives no real volume,


Guitar amps have preamp sections (think unpowered audio mixer) and power amp sections (Crown rack-mount amp). An excellent way to isolate audio problems if amp is still producing audio is to check the preamp out (line out). Preamp output distorted = preamp failure. Connect MP3 player to "Power Amp In"...sound distorted = power amp failure. In your case the latter is the case as your "line out" is clean. Also test each speaker for clear sound as speaker cone damage from being overpowered is fairly common. At 300w. I'll assume the failure was not from cranking the volume to loud but a shorted speaker or speaker wiring could zap the power amp in an instant.

Can I connect only one speaker to a yamaha emx 312 sc power mixer?


First it is certain that you would not want to plug both outputs of the stereo power amp into one speaker combining both channels into the same speaker. (see image from manual below - also link to manual)

Next I would be very concerned about only using the one side of the main amp out as it could cause an unbalanced load, or you could be driving the load into dead air connection and any of these conditions are destined to cause premature failure of the power amp.

Taking a quick scan of the manual for this unit, it appears what is pretty common to most powered mixers, hook up two matched speakers/loads to each chanel of the output.

Your best bet is to shed those monster cabs, there really is no need for them especially with this sized powered mixer, and get yourself a nice pair of full range cabs like EV1202;s, EV SX300's, or some nice 2 or 3 way 15" JBL's/

Just my opinon.

Shud i get an external equaliser? i'm using MG166CX 16-Channel Mixer as the main mixer.


An external equalizer will not help this at all. The problem is likely within the amp (feeding the main speakers), the connections from the board to the amp, or the speakers themselves. In other words, the answer would be "NO." Best of luck!

Power mixer to a power amp.


You have two aux sends on that mixer so quite easy to use one of those to feed the external power amp. You could have one set of spkrs connected to that amp and another connected to the powered mixer. This would give you full independent control over each set.

I have a mackie fx 8 mixer connected to two thump 15 " speakers. i want to add a set of base non- powered speakers with power amp to my fx 8. what are the connections?


Balanced audio interconnects (either XLR or TRS cables from the mixer and then balanced audio interconnects from the amp daisy chain inputs to the existing speaker inputs. If the amps do not have linked input jacks, then use TRS type WYE connectors at the inputs. Then use speaker rated cables from the amps to the passive speakers.

I Have a Peavey XR 600B mixer. There are only 2 inputs in the rear for speakers. I want to add more speakers to be used as monitors or just have extra speakers. How can this be done? I only have...


First off it's outputs to your speakers. If you had an extra set of powered or amplified speakers you could "Y" cable your speaker outputs. Your passive speakers won't work without an amp. You really need powered speakers or an amp for your extra speakers. (if you had powered/amp'd speakers you could run them off one of you "aux" out for monitors. Do not daisy chain your speakers connecting twi together, you'll change the resistance/ohms and damage your speakers. Trust me, I do this for a living.

Will a Behringer UB2442fx-PRO run 2 main PA speakers plus two passive stage monitors without blowing up?


ALL the speakers will either have to be POWERED or have external amplifiers. The mixer has NO power amps capable of driving speakers. When connecting, make sure that the mixer is powered by the same receptacle as the speakers or amps. Used balanced line for interconnection.

How do you "bridge" a d.j. 2 channel power amp? it


Very carefully... SInce the outputs are not specified as isolated, your speakers would be connected across the hots and the returns would be jumpered.
Then for the two inputs you would drive them balanced into the XLR connectors from a single balanced source and reverse pins 2 and 3 in ONE of the connectors of this Wye cable into one of the two inputs on the amp.

How to connect my qqualizer to my djm pioneer 400 mixer


Use the stereo master outs from the DJM into the A and B Inputs of the EQ (you'll need 2 phono to Jack or 2 phono to XLR cables) then from the A and B Outputs of the EQ to the power amp/ speakers, etc (you'll need jack or XLR cables depending on what is powereing your speakers)
