  • 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 have a preamp with a Line: Max. 11volts/1Kohms. Which sensitivity input should I use on my KM750...0.77, 26dB or 1.4 volts.

    Thanks in advance, folks.

    Did you know that Lab.Gruppen amplifiers were used on every single one of the top ten grossing tours of 2019?

    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-.
      • Sep 11
      • 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

    I'm a federal contractor that requires equipment from a TAA country.  So the items cannot be made in China and certain other countries.   Where is the E 8:2 made? or country of origin

    TAA - Trade Agreement Act

      David Knighton Hi Gdlpro,
      If you look at the image of the rear panel on the far right side, you'll see the unit is manufactured in Thailand.

    • Eugene Kim
      Eugene Kim Thank you, ok since Thailand is not a TAA country this equipment cannot be used in Federal installations

      Alexander Lane Hi there,

      Correct that E series is made in Thailand, however there are other Lab.gruppen models which are made in Sweden that might suit your requirements. I believe Sweden is on the TAA compliant list :)

      D Series (2U version not slimline)
      PLM+ series
      FP+ Series
      C Series

      Hope that helps!

        Chris Williams CAS-126264-Q2X1Y9 this is on my NX6000 with protect issues, this is in addition to 2 - NU4-6000's with fan issues, I figured making a ticket for the fan issues was pointless I just want to get them repaired.
