    Hello to all,

    I've just bought the PPA200 and want to add a monitor speaker to my set-up.

    There is no dedicated output to add a monitor speaker, so I was wondering if a passive or active monitor might run from the headphone output. Would that work?

    Thanks.

      Hello Viv, welcome to the community.


       


      You should be able to run an active monitor from the PPA200 phones output. Some active monitors have 3.5mm stereo Aux inputs so you could connect with a cable like this one.

      Hello Rex,


      Thank you for your swift answer. I thought that might work.


      I've looked at a few active monitors and I'm limited on the amount of power consumption for busking.


      I'm running all my gear from a lithium battery and only a 300watt inverter so a passive monitor would be the ideal solution to keep the power load down. There is a mono direct output and left/right RCA outputs on the PPA200 - would a passive monitor work from either of these do you think?


      I've spent a small fortune (to me) on all the gear I already have otherwise I'd just go with an active monitor and buy a higher wattage output inverter and use the headphones output.


      Again, thank you for your reply.

      I'm afraid that a passive monitor will not work from any of those outputs. You could always go for a monitor with its own built-in battery. Something like Samson Expedition Express?

      Thanks Rex you've been very helpful.

      Just as an update:


      I have a Roland Cube Street I originally intended to use on it's own for busking, but it's sound quality and flexibility leaves a little to be desired in my opinion, which is why I decided on a pa system. The Cube as most probably know can be battery powered so I'll use it as a monitor.


      In case anyone is interested I power my busking set-up with the following:



      This most probably isn't the place to include a list of the gear I intend using for busking but if anyone is interested I will do so in an appropriate place.

    Any idea on how to safely remove front speaker grill cover on Behringer B215XL to replace driver. No screws are located on the front grill cover.

    Hi all,

    I just purchased a pair of Behringer DR - 115 DSP'S and got to try them out today.

    Very nice sounding speakers and a lot of control with the DSP in terms to EQ's and crossovers etc.

    I'm a bit confused though in regards the limiting applied to this speaker it seems to display LIMIT on the LCD randomly. It's doesn't matter what level the input is at it will say LIMIT at low volumes and at high.
    This is annoying as honestly I don't know where the true limit is of the speaker.


    I'm running from Pioneer decks via XLR to the Behringer. volume on the Pioneer is at 12 OClock and the output meter reads -16db or so . Input gain is at 12 oclock and the volume on the LCD is at 0DB on the Behringer.

    There is an input meter which monitors input on the LCD of the Behringer and this is 1/4 of the way full when playing something through the speaker, I feel I'm nowhere near clipping either.

    I'm wondering if anyone could either shed light on any similar situations like this they had or if (God forbid) I should send the speakers back.

      Are you hearding noticeable level differences when the limit is displayed?  Maybe it is a soft limit to protect from peaks.  What listening mode are you in (DJ, Live, etc.)?  What is the source of the music?  (many downloaded mp3's have unwanted artifacts that may be triggering this).


      Will the speakers still get loud or is the limiter choking the level?


      I wouldn't be bothered by a limiter coming on.  That is different than a peak or clipping display.  I wonder if certain listening modes have a lower threshold on the limiter?

      Hello Kathleen, we may be able to help if you can explain your question a little more. Please tell us what you want to achieve or what is not working as you want.

      Yes, we have a small Orange Crush amplifier that we have hooked up to an analog soundboard with 1/4" cable (to aux out) and used it as a small monitor (external speaker) in our choir loft. I am asking if I can do the same thing on the Behringer X32 compact that we now have. We tried hooking it up and didn't get anything.

      You should be able to do the same thing with the X32 Compact. Did you try connecting to the Mon Out L connector on the X32? The Monitor Level control (top left on the console) adjusts the output level.


       


      It would be possible to send the Main output through one of the Aux 1-6 sockets but it would require some adjustment to the X32 settings. Is that something you would want to do?

    These two lights now only come on, when I turn on the power for my speaker. Why? Thanks for an assistance in advance.

      Do the come on briefly then turn off, or do they stay on. If it is the latter, you have a hardware problem.

    Hello everyone,

    I find the connection at the back for the power cord very shallow and does not fit tight. The weight of the cord pulls the plug slightly down and does not seat properly. 

    Also, what is the threaded hole at the top of the speaker for and where can I find the size of the threads.

    Thanks so much

      Hi, I have 2 B210Ds and I love them SO MUCH!  Also, both have very snug power ports so I would inspect yours to see if there's some kind of debris shoved in there...  Also, the threaded hole in the top is for the optional Wall Mount Speaker Brackets.  Hope this info is helpful, Ken

    I bought a subwoofer THRUTH B2029A (fairly used) on eBay, and after carefully reading the manual and following the voltage selection procedures, I powered on the subwoofer. After awhile (5min) I discovered the woofer was seriously heating, and shut down after some minutes. I thought it was disconnected from the mains but not. I troubleshoot (checked and replaced the fuse) but it was not coming up.
    Later I discovered the toroidal transformer is faulty.
    Now I want to replace the transformer, what’s the specifications I should be looking for.? And what’s the voltage that enters to the PCB of B2029A?

      Hello Angel, welcome to the community.


       


      I think you should connect the Left output from your mixer to the B1200D's Input A and the Right mixer output to Input B. Then connect the B1200D's Output A to the line input of the Left PA active speaker and Output B to the Right PA line input. Use XLR-M/XLR-F cables for all connections. There is a diagram of this at the top of page 8 in the B1200D-Pro Quickstart Guide.


      B1200D-Pro Quickstart Guide, Page 8B1200D-Pro Quickstart Guide, Page 8


      If this doesn't work as you want, tell us what make/type of PA speakers and mixer you are using and we will try to help.
