    Greetings all,

    Our current mixer setup is X32-Rack, with 2*s16s, and use the iPad for mixing. We just got a new speaker setup at our facility, two LR and then one sub. In this situation, it seemed best if we drive the sub independently. Views?

    So, for yesterday, I tried two ways to drive the sub independently, and option B did not work. Could I request your help?

    a) route channels into a Mixbus 7, and then route the bus to a matrix 6 and then to output, i.e. channels > mixbus > matrix > output. This worked, but was extremely hard to balance out, especially, routing each channels desired lows into the mixbus! Hard!

    b) I tried to use the C (LCR), i.e. as I understand, this gets the input as the LR in mono. This did not work, can somebody help me with this? What I did:

    [LIST=1]
  • Configured the routing, to allow the Virtual 14 to > Main LRC > Main C/M
  • In the Global Link preferences, unselected the M/C Depends on Main L/R
  • I also enabled the Mono/Center for each channel


    But this does not work, any views? Am I missing something?

    Thanks for any input! Really appreciate it.

    Kind regards.

      Hi Andreas,



      Thanks, that would be one more way of accomplishing it! But do you have an idea why the LCR does not work? The YouTube does show that I can route back from the main into the other Matrix to accomplish this, but I currently use



      5 x Matrix for the monitors (I use various mix buses for drums, musicians, and singers and then send the composite to the monitors)

      Matrix 6 is for video.



      I would have really liked to use the LCR mode. Any ideas? I.e. if I am sending LR and the C, then the C and LR should receive the signals directly from the channel, right? And then I can use the C to drive the subs! ??? Views?



      Kind regards,

      Benni

      Roblof If you look at it closley you'll see that the designated level control for LCR is called M/C.



      You can choose between two modes - LCR and Mono.



      LCR is a special case where the C is used with the panning control on your channel strips. When you are panned hard left or right everything works as you would expect it. But when you pan towards the middle you will send audio to your center speaker. When your pan control is centered only your center speaker will have sound and nothing in the LR speakers!



      In mono mode you'll get an extra 'mixbus' so to speak. When you enable this mono bus on your channel strip you also need to set the send level. Sends-on-fader on this bus works as well.

      Hi Robert!



      Bingo! Thanks! Okay, that is possibility what I overlooked! So, if on the iPad I chose both the Stereo LR and the Mono/Center, and if I raise the Mono/C, then I would have received the signal in the Mtx-Main C as well!



      Question: The iPad app > Setup > Global > Link Preferences, if I choose the M/C depends on the Main L/R, then would I still need to even raise the fader at all?



      Kind regards.

      If you enable that option the main fader becomes a vca to the m/c fader. This means that you control both levels with the master fader but you set the balance between the two with the m/c fader.

    I recently purchased a pair of these speakers. I've not yet powered them up.

    I note they are rated to 1000W, and the specifications state that thats 300W to the tweeter and 700W to the Woofer. It uses a Class D amplifier, and a switched mode power supply

    the sales literature show a graph of input (mains) to output power efficiency comparing the Class D amp with a conventional Class A amp, which shows wattages from 1 Watt to 100Watts

    The plate on the rear of the speaker clearly states it's power consumption (from mains) is 110W.

    have Behringer found some miraculous way of getting 1000W of electrical output power from 100W of input? this would solve the worlds looming energy crisis! This would enable us to reduce our greenhouse emissions by 90%

    this would permit the development of perpetual motion machines...

    but back in the real world methinks their marketing department are getting creative with how the define a Watt!!!!


    Pro-Audio equipment is normally rated in Watts RMS. there is an international standard that defines that a piece of kit must be capable of running a "simulated Music Signal" of band limited pink noise (to the frequency range of the device), with a crest factor of 10 for 8 hours without being damaged.

    a crest factor of 10 represents 10 dB of head room for transient peaks.
    in a 100W amp and speaker, a crest factor of 10 means it can tolerate transient peaks which would produce 1000W instantaneous input from the amplifier to the speaker.

    That is therefor a 100W RMS device, consuming 110W electrical power, with lots of headroom for transients.

    rule by which to interpret headline specifications: If it doesn't say RMS after a claimed wattage the figure is nonsense. "Peak" has a defined meaning, and "PMPO" is often quotes but is not clearly defined the true RMS wattage of such systems can often be 1/10 - 1/100 of the claimed value.

    I expect this nonsense in domestic all in one "hifi" systems - not in semi-pro audio equipment!

      SeanFairchild Dear Ruairí,



      Our CARE team may be able to provide more technical specs if you're interested. You can contact them at [email protected] and by phone at +1-702-800-8290 (US) or +44 1562 732290 (UK). While I don't know the technical power output details, I can tell you that our take on the issue of power ratings is that there effectively is no industry standard anymore (that isn't frequently manipulated), and that RMS is but one method of rating power. We prefer alternate ratings systems to RMS that we feel are more indicative of the real world power and output of our equipment, and the technical folks at CARE should be able to shed more light on that for you.

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Ruairí,



      I agree with Sean that audio wattage in RMS is not an international standard. In fact there is quite a debate with those much more knowledgeable than either of us on this subject whether that audio measurement has any real effective significance (google it). There are so many different variables in these measurements, meaning that it is nigh impossible to make comparisons of various amps simply by that one piece of data.



      Furthermore, electrical wattage is not the same as audio wattage and cannot be equated as such (google it).They simply use the same term (watts).

      GlennAdams Watts in at 120VAC. Constant. Don't forget to factor that into your equation for watts in vs watts out. Voltage and current play a big part. Like a transformer, I have one at my shop that has a 3 Phase 100 Amp breaker feeding it, but has a 3 Phase 200 amp breaker from it to the sub panel. How did it turn 300 amps into 600 amps??? I'll set my clock while you work this out.

      RyanHammond Wattage doesn't matter. What matters is SPL! Who cares if you're running a 1000W solid state or 100W tube amplifier... what matters is the SPL output.



      ... and even with SPL, there are so many ways of marketing SPL e.g., calculated vs. measured, peak vs. continuous... and measured by what? Pink noise at 1 meter with dB SPL, dBC, or dBA?
      • December 7, 2014
    • RuairíO_Dúill
      GlennAdams Wattage does matter. It is power. Voltage and amps.



      That doesn't matter if it is a 100 watt speaker or a 100 watt light bulb. If the speaker is 95% or better efficiency it will create allot of spl per watt, 80% much less spl per watt. Light bulb is .1% for SPL, but for heat and light it rates well.



      I think the topic is how can an amp be rated at 1000 watts while not pulling as much from the wall.

      So we are talking power conversion and NOT SPL. OP states 300W to tweeter and 700W to Woofer but only 100W from the source.

      So let me know if I misread the original post Ryan.

    Hello Good people.
    I'm new to this so please forgive me if I am posting in the wrong place.
    I purchased a set of B115W portable PA speakers. I am having a problem pairing the two via Bluetooth. I did everything exactly as per the user manual but am not winning. Have any of you any experience with these speakers? Can you offer me any tips on how to go about this?

      GlennAdams Not sure about this since I do not own this model, but all the BT speakers I've come across can only be paired one at a time, that is one iPad can only have one BT stream. The only BT speaker I've seen let you run a stereo pair from one connection is Alto. They do a wireless link that I can only guess is one BT speaker links to the other on another channel. Your device then links to one, one does left and the other does the right.



      Update - yes the manual says you can link a stereo pair. I was wrong. Sorry bout that.



      Mike - any ideas?

      Michael_Lapke Hi Guys,



      Muhammed welcome to the forums, sorry to hear you are having difficulties. I would suggest that you please look again at the Quick Start Guide (Here's the link: http://www.behringer.com/assets/B115W_B112W_QSG_WW.pdf) and specifically look at page 16 (on the PDF it's page 9) in the section labeled "Bluetooth Connection Procedure". There it tells you step by step how to link your device to the B115W and then how to connect it to another B115W speaker.



      I've done this before, so give it another shot using those instructions and let me know what happens. If it still doesn't work then please be specific on what is or isn't happening that way I can help you trouble shoot more effectively.

      MuhammedBadat Hello Good people

      Thank you for your help. @ Michael, I had a look at page 16 on the Quick start guide and did exactly that. So here's what happened: I am able to link my Bluetooth device (in this case I used my mobile phone) to the 1st speaker, then I paired the two speakers and then everything worked perfectly. Whatever I played from my mobile phone amplified out of both speakers, absolutely beautiful!



      However here comes my problem:

      I also purchased the 'cordless microphone' (Behringer ULM100USB). So I plug in the USB into 1st speaker, synchronise the microphone to USB receiver. Microphone works however sound only comes through the 1st speaker not the 2nd speaker that it is paired with.

      Please take a look at page 4 of the B115W B112W web Brochure. The illustration tells me that using the cordless microphone that I have should provide me stereo sound once the speakers are paired!..... or have I understood this incorrectly?



      I used the equipment last week Saturday (for our event held at an open field), I hard wired the one speaker to the other and I must say the sound and performance of the microphone and speakers was really good. Thumbs up to Behringer for that however I am not happy about the Bluetooth story.

      PatrickFlanagan Hey folks, just adding my 2 cents here as I also am experiencing the same issue. I just got 2 EuroLive B112W units, pairing from a Bluetooth device to speaker 1, and then pairing the speakers together is fantastic, perfect for when I only need background music for an event, but inevitably someone needs a microphone to make announcements. So I also picked up a ULM100USB, and can only get that to pass to the speaker that the USB is attached to. Now a little more messing around, and if I physically connect the two via a wire, I get pass through of both the Bluetooth and the wireless mic.



      So for now I have an out, but it sure would be nice to be able to have the others inputs pass through to the other speaker when paired. Hoping here for maybe a firmware update? Something that can be loaded to a USB stick, power the speaker on, it finds it, reprograms itself, and can hopefully correct a programming glitch? I really like the concept here, for the size and potential capabilities you have a system that for most public speaking situations will rock, especially if I do not need to put down any wires, except power. Oh yea, might want to see if you can swap out the production 5' power cord with something like 15' or 25', then you have the whole package ready to go out of the box.



      Please let me know if Behringer thinks that this is something that can be corrected, or if this is just a physical limitation of the unit.



      Thanks.

      Michael_Lapke Muhammed and Patrick,



      The B112W/B115W speakers do pass signal wirelessly via blutooth from one to the other, I do believe this only applies to signals that are synced via bluetooth, like your phone or MP3 player. Your ULM100USB and any other audio plugged directly into the back of the speaker will have to be passed to the other paired speaker by connecting them with an XLR cable. This is the intended operation of the B112W/B115W.

    I have searched this forum and youtube about how to use pink noise to ring out our sanctuary on our X32 (v. 2.06). I've read an article by Evan and it was helpful but I still need some beginning steps that I cannot find answers to, hence this post.

    1. How do you select and generate pink noise on the X32 to start the process? Do you need a mic and if so, do you just plug it into a empty channel?
    2. Are you using pink noise to eq just on the main LR outs or do you do this for each channel?
    3. How do I know what frequencies that I need to cut or raise?
    4. I've read about the RTA/graph and again I'm not sure how to implement this with the pink noise. Before or after?

    I feel I just need to start with these questions before I ask others. I checked out SMAART but they have two different programs V.7 and V.7 Di. Not sure what to buy and then I'm not sure how to implement this into my X32. I use a mac.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

      There's a thread on this forum - http://forum.behringer.com/showthread.php?3996-Room-tuning%28analysis%29-with-RTA-and-Pink-noise



      You may find some help there, or there are multiple articles on the www on the subject as well (for example: http://realtraps.com/art_measuring.htm) adapting what you read to your equipment.



      Keep in mind the "best result" is what your ears tell you and not necessarily the best measurement/electrical adjustment.

      GregWarren Patrick-Gilles,

      Thanks for the link.



      I've re-read it but I'm having problems not knowing how to use the pink noise generator in the monitor section? How do I insert an EQ to "overlay" on the mains and then what frequencies to cut. I'm lost.



      I've tried to use my mic with the explanation of the article you linked to but I have too many frequencies than just the 6 I have control over on the mains that are causing problems. Again, not sure how to overlay the 31 band eq (and what eq for that matter).

      PatrickGMaillot Greg,



      >>not knowing how to use the pink noise generator in the monitor section? How do I insert an EQ to "overlay"

      >>on the mains and then what frequencies to cut



      Go to the monitor/oscillator section and select "pink noise" . Hit Generate (1st dial) and set the level to a value, say -21db. The noise level will show on the vu-meter. Make sure your MAIN fader is set to -oo. Still in the monitor/oscillator screen, use the rightmost dial to assign the output to L+R, click on the dial to validate. Move slowly the MAIN fader... Pink noise in the speakers.



      Select the main (L+R) channel, select the Home screen, and hit INSERT (3rd dial), this enables effect insert.



      Select the Effect screen and for FX5, select type GEQ2 (5th dial) and Insert LR (1st dial) push on 1st dial to enable the insert, L and R are automatically assigned. You can select a different type of EQ (Dual TrueEQ for example).



      The GEQ is now an insert in your L+R line. The Pink noise generated in the oscillator section goes through the GEQ. Modify the dials/faders on the GEQ to hear the difference in sound from you speakers. Remember on the Dual versions of the EQ, there are two pages... L and R are assigned section A and B of the EQ, respectively. Changes you make in A are not automatically pushed to B.



      Using this and an RTA can help level the frequency response of a room.



      Hope this helps,

      -Patrick

      GregWarren Ok...thanks for the instructions...I know it took some time to write it out and I'm grateful.



      Some observations and questions:

      1. I can get the pink noise to come through but all I'm seeing is basically blue and green on the graph. I'm not sure how to read it to know what to cut?

      2. When I went back to my mic and the RTA on channel 13(the open one I had and no eq), I started turning up the gain on my mic and I was able to notch out of the LR mains, by way of 31 band eq, the problem feedback frequencies. I then use the LR Main eq (the one with 6) to fine tune the rest of the problem frequencies.



      I'm not sure if that's how you're suppose to ring it out or not?



      Thanks again for the help.
      • August 18, 2014

      Paul_Vannatto Hey Greg,



      If you are seeing colors (blue and green), you probably have it set to show the spectrograph type RTA. You may want to change that to the traditional RTA in the Meters, RTA screen. This will show the levels (in blue) of the 31 bands and might be easier to interpret.

    Our church is starting to use P16-M Personal Monitors. They are great, but create a bit of a challenge for me to provide sufficient gain to the P16-M for the performers to have sufficient levels to mix. All P16-M routings are Pre-Fader.

    It appears that the only thing I can to at the X32 is to crank the gain up to give them sufficient level to build a personal mix. This creates problems for me to mix for the House.

    Is the channel level gain the only way I can control the initial level at the P16-M?

      Paul_Vannatto Hi David,



      Great to hear that you are using the P16 at your church. We've been using them for the past 2 years and love them. I've never heard a musician complain that there wasn't enough gain. You do know that the P16-M does have a variable limiter on them. Maybe that is turned down. What do you have connected to the P16's?



      Regarding the routing, that is not correct. In fact the P16-out screen of the Routing section of the X32 is the most versatile output there is, with many options of taps.

      ShaneStever The P16-Ms have multiple stages of level control, in the following order:

      1. Levels coming out of the X32, influenced by your gain, P16 routing choices, and processing

      2. Individual channel levels on the P16-M, including EQ

      3. Master (main) output level on the P16-M - make sure this one is turned up!

      4. Headphone levels on the P16-M with limiter - make sure limiter isn't set too low!



      You'll want to properly adjust your signal level at each of these stages to see where your gain is getting chopped.

      PeteHanratty When we have had problems, very few, it is almost ALWAYS the main gain on the P16-M is turned down. Still loving them after two years like Paul.

      Roblof If you use headphones with improper impedance your level could suffer.

      EliezerZelaya Hi David,



      You are correct in that, the P16 mix depends on the channel gain. That's why it is very important to have a correct gain structure if you want to get the most out of your P16 system. You cannot expect to get a good signal on your P16 mix with a channel that is barely reaching -40 db on the channel meter. So my suggestion is, check your gain structure. Also, like Paul said, check the Tap send on the P16 routing screen. It's different for everyone but I have found the Pre-fader tap works really well. We have been using the P16 system at our church for about a year now and it is awesome, everyone loves it.

    "How can I connect the BEHRINGER DDM4000 to Traktor (my computer)? I have bought Midimate II to connect it but I am having some serious trouble connecting it to Traktor. I have downloaded the mapping and everything. If you (or anyone) could give me a detailed way to set this up it would be really appreciated."

      Louis,



      You can choose which of the channels on the DDM4000 are selected as midi control OR audio. Press and hold the BPM/ADJUST knob which is directly below the screen in the middle. Turn the BPM/ADJUST knob to MIDI SETTINGS. Press the BPM/ADJUST knob to select this menu. Use the PARAM/OK knob which is directly below the screen on the right, to select which of the four channels will be used for midi. When you're done press the MIDI START-STOP/ESC button to exit.



      Your midi interface is the device that will show up as the midi device on your computer, not the DDM4000. The DDM4000 is just acting as a midi controller. The midi parameters of the DDM4000 can not change, it is hard wired. Basically Traktor has to conform to what MIDI parameters are come from the DDM4000.



      You mentioned that you've already downloaded the DDM4000 mapping for Traktor. Alternately, you could use the midi learn mode in Traktor to get the midi control setup in the software.

    When I do a monitor mix the sound is also showing up in the LR speakers. I have followed the instructions on Page 27 (5.6) in the User Manual. Here is the routing procedure I am using: The LR speakers are fed from XLR outputs 15 and 16 as suggested by Behringer. I have a CD player patched to the two RCA inputs that are controlled by AUX inputs 5 and 6. On the "Mix Bus Faders" I have selected #3 and moved the fader to the 0dB position. On the Routing Screen I have selected XLR #3 as the "Analog Output," "Mix Bus" as the Category, "Main Bus #3" as the Processed Output and "Post Fader" as the Signal Tap. I used the third knob in the "Bus Sends" bank instead of the "Sends on Faders" to set the sound level. Sound is coming from the monitor speaker but also from the Main LR Speakers. There is also an indication of a signal level on the LR meters of the Display Screen. If I move the Master Fader to the off position, the sound from AUX 5 and 6 disappears from the LR speakers, but the monitor sound remains and can be controlled by "Mix Bus" Fader #3.

    The same problem exists when using microphones plugged into Mic Inputs 1-32 and routed through Mix Busses #1 and #3.

    Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

      TimPadrick Do the Aux In faders remove the signal from L/R? From Mix 3?



      Does the Aux In Mix 3 control remove the signal from L/R? From Mix 3?



      Does the Mix 3 master fader remove the signal from L/R? From Mix 3?

      GlennWalden 1) I know that the Aux In faders remove the signal from L/R. I think the sound also disappears from Mix 3, but not 100% sure.



      2) I don't know what the Aux In Mix 3 control is.



      3) The Mix 3 master fader removes the sound from both the L/R and Mix 3. Sound in L/R is still present and can be controlled with the Aux In faders. However, if the Mix 3 fader is raised the level

      GeorgeDougherty Your Main tab with the Mix 3 selected should not have the LR send engaged. That's what it sounds like is going on.

      DwightBrown Glenn,



      I would agree with George. I would guess if you hit the Select button above your Mix Bus 3 you would see the Main Bus button (to the left of the screen in the BUS SENDS area) lit orange. This would route the monitor mix to the MAIN outs. Hope this helps!

      GeorgeDougherty The only other thing that could be doing it would be for an input channel with it's fader up (send to Main L/R) to be taking its input source from your aux bus. In that case you should also be seeing another input channel metering signal in your test scenario. My first suggestion seems much more likely though.
