  • Hello,

    I run a circus theatre company who put on performances outdoors.

    We've been touring with a Behringer PMP500 & Dynacord a112 12” passive speakers. They've done everything we have needed so far, however the Behringer PMP500 has a few issues and we're looking for a replacement.

    I'm not sure whether to buy a straight replacement of the same model, or whether I could buy something a bit more powerful whilst I'm at it? Will the speakers I have be able to take it?

    Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated! (I know next to nothing about sound equipment so feel free to state the obvious also)

      Rex Beckett Hello Edd, the specification for the Dynacord A112 lists the peak power handling as 1000 Watts. I think you could upgrade to a PMP4000 or PMP6000 mixer if the additional channels or flexibility would be a benefit. Both of these mixers have about twice the output power than the PMP500 but are still within the capabilities of your speakers.

      If you want it even louder, get two additional A112 speakers and connect them in parallel to the current ones. Both the PMP4000 and PMP6000 would drive either two or four A112 8 Ohm speakers.

      • Which Behringer PMP?
        Edward Livesey-Casey Hi Rex,
        Thank you so much for your reply, it's really useful.
        Somebody else suggested I might be better going for the following:
        Do you have any thoughts on the Yamaha EMX 5?
        Thanks again!

      • Which Behringer PMP?
        Rex Beckett I don't have any personal experience of the EMX 5 but it has similar facilities to your existing PMP 500 and about double the output power. The EMX 5 lacks the graphic EQ but has a simpler, one knob control which may be easier for your application. The choice depends on a couple of factors:

        Do you want a desktop style mixer with faders or would a box style with rotary level controls be OK. Faders can be better when there is a sound engineer riding the levels. The box format can be more convenient for set-and-forget applications.

        Could you benefit from additional mic or line channels in the future? The EMX 5 has a similar line-up to the PMP500 so would not give much upside - except for the output power.

    I am scehdued to buy this amp. I wish there were a manual to understand and answer some questions. I saw all the youtubes.

    Can different FX be set as prests?

    Can the pedal be assigned to turn specific FX on/off?

    Can the harmonies be prest? As in a single or double footswitchable?

    Thanks, John

    I'm having issues getting my new NX3000D to connect to my PC using NX Edit. I have tried three different Windows 10 computers, and 2 different USB cables. All of the computers recognize and setup the device, but the Behringer software will not even show the amp to connect.

    I tried connecting the amp to the pc with the software open before and after powering it on, connecting the USB after turning the amp on, running the software in compatibility mode, with admin privileges, etc...

    Does anyone have any suggestions to get this thing to connect?

      Pedro Rodrigues Hi Arbigator can you please confirm if you are connecting the NX3000D to a USB 2.0 PORT?

        Dustin Morasch Hi Pedro, I had to dig out an ancient laptop with a USB 2.0 port, and that did the trick. Thanks for the tip! Though it's a bit frustrating that this doesn't work over anything else, many new computers don't even have a USB 2.0 port

    New laptop. Windows 10 home. I have 2 amps 1 inuke 3kdsp and 1 inuke 6kdsp. The remote connect software does not recognize the 3k. The 6k connects perfectly. Both function perfectly on old laptop. I believe that one is win7. I have updated and uninstalled/ reinstalled software and drivers. Windows does recognize both amps just the software does not recognize the 3k on the new laptop. I use the same cable for both amps only connecting one at a time.

      Dustin Morasch I'm having this same issue and looking for a solution. Just bought a NX3000d, but can't get NX Edit to connect to it.

    On the spec sheets it states that the NX6000D has the following modes:  

    • BRIDGE, DUAL (Dual Mono), STEREO, BIAMP1 or BIAMP2.

    I connected to the amp via NXEdit, and the only modes that are being shown is: DUAL (Dual Mono), STEREO, BIAMP1 or BIAMP2.

    I went thru the front display and even there the option for Bridge is not shown.

    So my question, how do I set this amp in Bridge mode?

      John Matthews Hi MrGTO, the NX6000D doesn't feature a bridge mode. This is covered in the user manual and no bridge power is specified in the QSG here:

      Could you let me know the document you have read there is Bridge Mode for the NX6000D in case there is an error?

      • NX6000D Bridge mode???
        Mike Cee Hi John, this is a big issue, the link attached above is for the user manual correct? This is a screen shot from that manual... #6: so I ask, how do I access Bridge mode on this $600 amp I just purchased?
        • Sep 14
    • Mike Cee
      Mike Cee This was one of the selling points for the setup I built. Very misleading. Listed as mono bridge being available on the nx6000d on Sweetwater and parts express.
      • Sep 14
    • Mike Cee
      John Matthews Sorry this would seem to be an error in the product description, and I agree it could be made clearer in the QSG that Bridge mode does not apply to the NX6000D. I will report this to the relevant team at once so it can be updated to avoid this error in future. In the meantime it would be best to contact your Sweetwater rep for assistance in sourcing an amp suitable for your setup and returning this one. If you need more help with this then plesae submit a tech support case via the support button and a member of our team in your region will be able to assist.

    Recently purchased this amp and wanted to set it up with 4 independently adjustable mono outs.

    I have Main LR as input from my X32 connected to input A and B and amp set to mono. Output for A and B is identical and adjusts with the control knob for channel A. No separate response on channel B.

    Pretty sure I'm doing something incorrectly...

      Joshua Perkins Just noticed that channels B and D wire to 2+ and 2-.

      • Behringer NX4-6000 Output Configuration
        Dave Morrison The signal to B and D are present on both "A" (2+, 2-) & "B" (1+, 1-) and "C" (2+, 2-) & "D" (1+, 1-) respectively. You don't need 4 pole cables unless you want to send both signals down one cable.
        • Sep 11
    • Joshua Perkins
      Joshua Perkins Could that cause this issue? My apologies, I do not have any 4 pole SpeakONs on hand to try...
      • Sep 11
    • Joshua Perkins
      Dave Morrison Don't set the switch to "mono", use "stereo" instead. Mono will send input "A" to both amplifier "A" and "B". The same is true for C and D
