    I am trying to understand all that I need to get the Behringer Powerplay P16-I and P16-M to function as a monitor with our Behringer X32 mixer/S32 stage box.  Is there some document or video that explains the hardware requirements end to end?  It is not clear to me whether the outputs from the X32/S32 are directly connected to the P16-I or whether an AMP is required between the X32/S32 and P16-I to amplify the sound so that it is audible in the headphones connected to the P16-M.

      Paul_Vannatto If you have an X32 and S32 stagebox, you don't need a P16i. That unit was designed to be used with an analog console to provide Ultranet to the P16. Both the X32 and the S32 have Ultranet ports on the backs of the units.

      Thank you Paul, but your response eliminated part of the hardware I thought I needed to implement the P16M, but doesn’t respond to the question of the necessity of an AMP in make the P16M function. It also raises a new question. It the P16-I is not necessary, to what does the Cat6 from the P16-M connect?

      • Behringer P16-I and P16-M end to end hardware requirements
        JeffRusin I’ll give this a try, you come out of the alternate port on your Barringer product it is best to go into a P 16 M distribution box. Then from the box it has like six outputs , you would run a cat five cable to each piece 16 unit. That way The p 16 unit will not need power from a wall wart as it comes through the CAT5 cable , now if I’m understanding you correctly the P 16 has a quarter inch out left and right I do believe that you would come out the left mono and either go into your powered monitor speaker or into an amp which would then feed the monitor speaker. That would be a lot of extra cables If it was through an app first but I suppose you could set up the P 16s by the back line of the stage as you would not be adjusting that much during the show if at all and therefore hopefully closer to the amps. I hope this answered your question

    Hi,

    My only DP48 is directly connected to AES50B of my M32. No daisy chain, no HUB4.

    In the M32 inputs routing, i selected AES50B 1-8 for the channels 1-8.

    On M32 channels 1-4 and 7-8 there is no signal, on channels 5-6 I get the signal from the DP48 microphones.

    When I switch on the DP48, after 2 seconds, there is a loud pop on channels 5-8, nothing on channel 1-4.

    DP48 firmware is 2.2.

    Question : Is the upstreaming only allowed in conjonction with HUB4, meaning that upstreaming without it is not supported and leads to the weird results i explained ?

    Thank you for your support.

    BR

      Nigel67 Hi JaquesMathez. The Upstream should work without the need of the Hub4. Please refer to this block diagram. The 8 channels being sent back to the AES50 ports is shown right at the top. https://mediadl.musictribe.com/download/software/midas/DP48/DP48_Block_Diagram.pdf You have the Aux Inputs, Ambience Mics, Mix A and Mix B. It would appear that the 8 channels are working as you mention that you see the audio from the ambience Mics. Is the M32 running G4.06?

        JacquesMathez Thanks Nigel, everything is clear to me now. By the way, yes, i'm running V4.06

    Good Morning,

    how can I adjust the recording level from DP48?

     

    thanks

    Good afternoon to every one,

    probably a silly question. Why my DP48 doesn't show vertical meters as I see in every picture of it?

    Thanks & Sorry

    Fabio

    • Gaf_Fab
      Paul_Vannatto It is because your DP48 probably has the latest firmware with the group list. The official pictures were taken before the group list was added. The VU meters are horizontal just under the group names.

    I want to use a P16m, connecting it to our S32's Ultranet port, without making any changes or linking in our mix buses.  I understand this will allow me to pan the other musicians and vocalists in my in-ear monitors.  Correct?

    • Burnhaven
      Paul_Vannatto Yes that is correct. Make sure you assign the desired inputs (in banks of 8) to the Routing, AES50 (A or B, depending on which you are using) banks 5-6 so that the S32 will output them to the Ultranet output.

      • P16m with X32 and S32
        Burnhaven How does this look? Our AES50 routing in X32 Edit. I probably need 8 inputs to a P16M and might not even need drums since I stand so close to them and we have a click track. It's the panning capability I'm really after, and I've started calling this "mono panning" rather than stereo because it gets confused with situations where something like a keyboard might send a stereo, left/right pair ---- which isn't happening in our situation.

      Paul_Vannatto If the S32 is connected to the X32 AES50 A port, you need to assign the signals you want to go to the P16, to the AES50-A 33-40 and 41-48 (5th and 6th banks). You first have to assign individual signals on the Out 1-16, Aux Out or Ultranet screens to make up the banks of 8. Then assign those (eg Out 1-8, 9-16) to the 5th and 6th AES50-A banks.

    My guitar player has a Behringer B205d and the speaker needs replaced. I sent in a service request on 3/31 and have heard nothing back. How can I get a replacement speaker. Thanks

    Can I plug the P16-M, right into the XR18 using a shielded cat5 cable. It seems to work but the volume is low, so i waas wonder if that was an issue? Do I have to us P16-I

      hayessean Nick, is this you? Sean.
      • Mar 27
    • NPBailey
      Paul_Vannatto Yes you can plug the shielded cat5e into the Ultranet port to provide P16-M the desired signals. Those signals are assigned on the In/Out, Ultranet using X-Air Edit. If the signals are low, it could be an assignment issue (assigning other signals than what is expected) or the signals being sent are low. Another possibility if the levels on the P16-M seem to be low is that the P16-M limiter (last knob on right) has been set too low.

    Hi folks. First let me say that I am a musician/singer, not a sound tech so please take it easy on me. Our sound tech recently changed from a Presonus to the Behringer XR18. The Presonus came with an app that allowed me to connect via my iPhone and set my own personal levels on my ear monitors. My questions are two. First, is there a Behringer App that allows me to connect and set my own personal ear monitor levels? Second, if not, is there a third party app recommended, or if failing that, what is the community's thoughts on the best one among third party apps.

    Thanks for being patient with me, I'm a good end user but not a good tech.

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Mick, yes there is the official app for personal monitor mixes called MX-Q. But the 3rd party app, called Mixing Station is far superior (with a minimum cost). The one advantage of Mixing Station is if you ever have an opportunity to provide music at an event that has the X32, M32, Wing, Soundcraft, A&H, etc., Mixing Station can be used for those as well. All you have to do is pay a minimum fee for additional licence.

    Looking to use the HUB4 to add two monitor outputs for IEMs.

    Here is the AES50 setup: MIDAS M32C <> SD8 <> HUB4

    The M32C is a dedicated monitor mixer. I use ports 1 to 3 on the HUB4 to send PoE and channels to 3 DP48s. The stationary musicians plug their in ears directly into the DP48s. I have 8 mono monitor mixbuses routed to the outputs of the SD8, which are plugged into 8 (mono) IEM transmitters. I'm looking to add two more (mono) wireless IEMs channels but I'm maxed out on the SD8.

    Is it possible to use two of fourth port channels, which seem to be assigned to AES50 channels 45-48, to carry the two additional mixbuses? (I'd just assign the two mixbus outputs to AES50 channels 45 and 46, for example.) I'm not in the jam room to test so I am hoping someone can confirm so I can set it up when I go in. But if it is not possible, I'll have to figure a workaround.

    Thanks in advance!

    Kevin
