Thread: Help with set-up....

  1. #1

    Help with set-up....

    So I'm setting up my PA with a new amp...My Peavey fried so I replaced it with a Behringer so now I have two Behringers...One runs my tops and the other my subs...My Peavey had a thru out so I could run a signal to the sub amp...My new Behringer doesn't...They both have a left and right input...
    So heres my deal....Both amps are bridged to get the most out of them and I need to make sure when I run a stereo signal like from a CD player or Ipod both amps get both left and right signals...This is what I have...
    From CD player for instance, L&R RCA into 1/4 male adapters into line in L&R of the last channel on the board so I have some EQ and volume control...So from there it leaves the board thru the main L&R outs and needs to go to the amps...Problem is I only have one input for each amp since I'm bridged and mono...I think if I just run say the left main out to the tops amp and the right main out to the sub amp I'm going to be missing part of the stereo signal...Now I did take 4 Y-connectors and 4 1/4 to 1/4 cables and tried to send both L&R signals to each amp but I think they're canceling each other out...So my question without buying crossover is, how would you do it to get both L&R signals to both amps when they only have one input each???
    The mixer is a Behringer XENYX 2442 FX
    The tops amp is an EP2400
    The sub amp is an EP4000
    The tops are 2 Peavey Impulse 1015 1000 RMS 2000 peak each...
    The subs are 2 Peavey Black Widow 18" that handle a bunch too...

    Hi Paul,

    Without a doubt, you'll get the best results by adding a crossover to this setup. Check out the CX2310.

    In the meantime, we don't recommend using Y cables. If you have to split something in a pinch it can work, but you never want to use a Y cable to combine signals. This usually causes problems.

    Instead, just connect the left out of the mixer to one amp, and the right out of the mixer to the second amp. Then, make sure that you have a mono signal coming out of both left and right outputs. Make sure all of the PAN controls are in the center.

    There's one more thing to make mono, and that is the CD player or stereo source connected to the stereo channels on the mixer. Use 2 channels instead of one stereo channel. If you connect to the left/mono input only of a stereo channel, the signal will be mono on both left and right main outputs.

    Thanks...I pulled out my CD mixer that I used to DJ with...It not only has a stereo/mono switch, it also has two extra RCA inputs so I can plug my player in here and make it mono as well...I will be going with a crossover sometime after Christmas...

    Can you help me to setup all these for playback with a CD Player ?

    1. Xenyx X1622USB
    2. UltraMatch Pro DEQ2496
    3. UltraCurve Pro DEQ2496
    4. Composer Pro XL-MDX2600
    5. Sonic Exciter SX3040
    6. Visualizer 3D FX2000

    Studio Monitors i use is Yamaha HS80, KRK Rokit 8 and nEar 08 by ESI.

    at the meantime i am using it separately for recording session. but would like to know with the above equipment how to setup and make it sound good playing an audio cd ... for demo purpose.

    Hi Simon,

    1. If you want to control the volume level of your CD player with the faders on your Xenyx X1622USB, it would be best to use rca to 1/4" cables to connect from the outputs of your cd player to stereo channels on your Xenyx X1622USB.

    2. Connect the FX SEND of your Xenyx X1622USB to the INPUT of your FX2000. Connect the OUTPUTS of your FX2000 to the STEREO AUX RETURNS.

    3. Connect from the MAIN OUT of the Xenyx X1622USB to the INPUTS of your MDX2600, then from the OUTPUTS of your MDX2600 to the INPUTS of your DEQ2496.

    4. Connect from the OUTPUTS of the DEQ2496 to the INPUTS of your SX3040. Connect this OUTPUT to your powered monitors.

    If your CD player has a spdif out, you can connect it to the SRC2496, then connect the OUTPUT of the SRC2496 to a stereo input on your Xenyx X1622USB.

    You can choose to come out of the CONTROL ROOM OUT instead of the main outs.

    You may want to consider a MON800. It will allow you to switch between different monitor speakers. You can see one at:

    I hope that this is helpful to you.
