PA sett up
Hi all My PA components are a PMP 4000 (4) x EXL 115 8ohm speaker boxes and a FBQ 1502 what is the best way to set it all up to get the best sound. We are a duo 2 vocals, guitar with sperate amp and backing tracks. Thanks for any ideas Cheers Chris.
I assume you are planning on using 2 of the speakers as mains (FOH) and the other 2 as monitors, correct? If so, with the equipment listed, you will need to setup/hookup as follows.
1. Setup the PMP4000 as Mon1/Mono for the amp mode. That will make it so that the one internal amp will power the monitors and the other the mains (through the Mono fader).
2. In order to hookup the FBQ1502 to the PMP4000, you will need to get 2 insert cables (1/4" TRS on one end and 2 1/4" TS on other end). Plug the In TS plug into the input of the back of ch A of the FBQ1502 and the Out TS plug into the output. Do the same with the ch 2 of the FBQ1502. Then plug the TRS plug of each of the insert cables into the Power Amp Insert jacks (top right corner of PMP4000).
3. Hookup the speaker cable from A Speakon jack at the back of the PMP4000 to the first monitor speaker, then connect another cable between that speaker and the second monitor speaker
4. Hookup the speaker cable from B Speakon jack at the back of the PMP4000 to the first mains (FOH) speaker, then connect another cable between that speaker and the second mains speaker.
Hope that helps
