1st....the output section, "M" stands for mono. The A&E does not have "monitor" sends per say but instead calls them "Aux's." Adjust the proper Aux for the input channel 1-16 and use the Aux output section (row of knobs above output sliders) as the master volume. By using Aux 1-4 (and with more amps) you could send 4 discrete monitor mixes to four different band members. Bass likes his monitor strong but doesn't want to hear other members while guitarists want to hear only himself and the singing drummer...etc.
If you're trying to get a monitor feed from this unit, use the "aux" send. Connect the "aux send" to your monitor amp. The main Aux fader provides "master" level and the "aux" knob for each channel allow you to "mix" your monitor signal.
Send audio from board via the "Aux1 Out" to the input of the effects unit. Now connect the output of the effects unit to "ST1" and control the amount of effects to each channel via each channels "Aux1" control. Adjust the Aux1 controls in the output stage (controls on the right side) for proper levels.
Older boards called this connection "effects send" for the output to the effect, and "effects return" for the effects out back to the board. The better choice was to use "effects send" into the effect but connect the effects output to an unused channel on the board. Using this scenario allowed EQ adjustments to be made before mixing it out to the amps and speakers.
You should use TRS since that is balanced just like XLRs.
Especially for long wire runs. This is if you go for XLR on the other end =
Pin 1= Sleeve
Pin 2= Tip (HOT)
Pin 3= Ring
Normally, in US equipment, 2 & 3 are inverted (3 is HOT), but you got British here, they switch the HOT pin on the XLR to pin 2.
That means that if you run this unit with US speakers your signal will be out of phase. Be careful there... I have lived this with AH boards before.
You can also use normal unbalanced cable for short runs, but I suggest keeping to standards.
Make sure that you have enable the main monitor volume at the end of the mixer. They are labeled AUX1 and AUX2 as well located under the last channel of the mixer. If those are on 0 your monitors won't work
I answered another post of this earlier. The AUX3 is strictly POST FADER... you MUST turn the channel sliding fader up to send signal to AUX 3. Also the AUX3 channel gain KNOB must be turned up. Also the AUX master gain KNOB must be turned up. Make sure your cablles are balanced TRS cables from the mixer to the powered speakers.
It appears that AUX6 is default factory strapped as POST FADER. If you want to change that you will have to disconnect jumper L to A for all channels you want the AUX to be pre-fader and instead connect K to S for the option jumpers. I don't know if this requires soldering or whether they are push on jumpers. These should be available in the back cover. In ADDITION you will have to run the switched pre/post fader switch in the PRE position which will make ALL AUX's that are strapped this way PRE FADER.
