20 Most Recent Behringer Europower Pmp5000 Powered Mixer Pmp5000 Questions & Answers


I'd need to know what mixer you have, to know if there is a [line out] connection socket and an [internal amp in] connection socket.

"each with own poweramp" I presume means the ep1500's and NOT that the speakers are active (ie containing amps)

***If any of your speakers are active, ask the question again, with more detail.***

So if all your speakers are passive, I offer the following.

I assume there is [effect send] and [effect return] on the mixer

effect send>quadraverb>effect return

mixer line out > eq > compressor > sonic maximizer > crossover

sub output of crossover> amp > sub
high output of crossover to mixer's internal amp input
mixer's speaker output > main speakers

monitor output > other side of eq (>other side of compressor if desired, but use sparingly ) > other side of sonic max if it is true stereo , otherwise skip > amp > monitors

If your mixer doesn't have an input to its internal amp, we are "back to the drawing board"
With questions like this it pays to give as much detail as possible; model and make of each component etc
I have done my best with the the info you have provided.
Don't feed amp outputs into powered speakers

Chances are you've blown the output transistors. Speakon connectors cannot short out but jack connectors can and if it was not inserted properly you'll have presented a dead short to your powered mixer. In any event it is really bad idea to connect anything when it's switched on. If you're really lucky replacing the output stage (which will probably be dead short on the transistors) and re-adjusting the bias should sort you out.

When using Speakon adapter cables with 1/4 inch plugs, the sleeve of channel A is the hot and not the tip of the plug. Inadvertent shorting of this to ground can blow that channel of the amp.

Yes, it can be repaired. Likely at least the output transistors are fried, possibly the drivers are too. Possible other components like resistors gone, too. Needs somebody that knows amps.

Oops! Smoke from on of those is not unusual, as behringer is notorious for bad solder joints and BAD Power supplies. Anyhow the amplifiers are "most likely" OK. but your powersupply is shot. My PMH 3000 did the exact same thing. And here is the bad news. Behringer is also notorious for the lack of assistance in case of problems and will advice you to have the unit repaired at an approved service point. If however you are ok with electronics you can have a go yourself, manuals are few and (very) far between. I have some diagrams and stuff, so if you need some sing out. I have 2, MX 3282A mixers, nothing but trouble! Sorry I can't help you any further, Good luck.

If you overload them the output MOSFETs fry and tend to take the circuit board and a few resistors out. They are fixable but it's a pain hat the board fries. The tracks need building up with wire so they can carry the necessary current (or any once they fry). Apart from that they are a decent Amp for little bucks and sound pretty good. They'll need micing for anything but smaller venues but the functions are really useful in getting a good sound for the buck.

You don't say what item of Focusrite equipment you are trying to connect or for what purpose. Most focusrite stuff has jacks with analog outputs for each channel that can be used into the line ins on the mixer and jack/xlr combos that can be used to take a signal to the focusrite box. Then you get the firewire side for the PC and digital outputs as well which will not be of use with your mixer.

Assuming you have not got the fx1/2 to mon turned right down it would seem likely that this has failed which would be about the only thing that would stop fx to mon if all else is working. You do not describe the distortion to the mains but if it is related to the fx then this would point to the same thing, a failed pot probably. These are a total nightmare to replace although the part is dirt cheap. Allow your self several hours if you think it is worthwhile. Behringer (and some other) mixers are now made in such a way as to be almost unrepairable using a single smt board that requires total disassembly of the unit to replace even wearing parts (excluded by the warranty). I would suggest replacing the mixer with a new one or a decent second hand one.
