power amp

Using a power amp/mixer as just a power amp for a mixing console?

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I couldn't find a better one. I was hoping someone could clarify some questions I have about setting up a PA system for my home studio. I recently acquired a Peavey XM6 amplifier/mixer and we've been running it through an 80 watt behringer wedge. We have a set of Yamaha PA speakers that are on their way this week. I was wondering, since my peavey only has 2 outputs, and not a lot of control over equalizing, can I use it as a power amplifier for a mixing board? If so can I use it to hook up all 3 speakers.

Care for a Power Amp / Installing / Mounting it

Hello, I want to know what I can do to install a power amp or modify it so that it's portable for transport. I'd also like to know how to handle a power amp with care.


The band that i play with don't have much space so we are constantly moving between 3 houses. I recently acquired a power amplifier (Yamaha PD2500) and two "Acoustic Linear Monitors 12" passive speakers.


I wouldn't mind putting it in a suitcase if that's what it takes, but I'd hate to wreck it, so anything I should know about handling a power amp with care?

Crown Power Amplifier?

Was simply wondering what amplifier I should get for my studio monitors. I do not have powered speakers nor do I want to buy them. Not sure on the specs on my 2 monitors but I'm surely going to need an amplifier w/ 2 outputs that would bridge out in mono to each speaker. This setup is strictly going to be for my home studio. They are Pulsar monitors and were given to me by a DJ. They will not be used for gigs... I was thinking a Crown amp but am open to other opinions. I'm looking for value = Good quality, fair price. Looking forward to many comments.

Help with using a powered mixer with a power amp

I have a Behringer PMP2000 powered mixer with 12" speakers (B212XL) and a Behringer EP 4000 Europower power amp with 15" speakers (B215XL). I want to use the powered mixer/12s for monitors and the power amp/15s for mains. I think this is possible but I'm not sure what cables I'll need and how exactly to hook it up. Can the powered mixer be used to EQ the sound going out through the mains if I'm using the power amp to push them? Can anyone give me a little advice? I'm fairly inexperienced with live sound reinforcement.

Thanks!

power amp for subwoofer duty

i've been on a kick checking out power amps to run my subwoofers. so i've read up on a few things and here are some of the amps i'm considering to run 2 or 4 cheap subwoofers, each at an 8-ohm load.

Crown XTi4000
Crest VS1500 (if i use 4 subs i'll need 2 of these)
QSC RMX series

i already have an XTi4000 for my tops, and if i had 2 of them i would just use their onboard DSP for xover and EQ. but i've heard they're not the best for subs

Wiring a sub to a crown power amp?

Im stuck again, i just bought a new sub to go with my klipsch speakers for my mixing station.
Speakers=klipsch wf-35's
Sub=tannoy revolution sub 1001
Power amp=crown 202 (no sub out).

The crown has speaker terminals out that are wired to the klipsch and it also has speakon output connectors.
The sub has right +/- high level speaker connectors and left +/- input speaker connectors.

Power Amplifiers for Passive monitors

Hello all, relatively new to this field of music--long time listener, noob producer--anyways Im picking up a pair of Tannoy Reveal 601P's very soon.

Heres a link to the manual--page 12 lists the specs
http://83.138.162.162/products/367/Reveal%20passive%20Manual%20LR2010331.pdf

so I have a few questions, mainly revolving around the electrical amplification required for this pair
