    Is there a button/power sequence to reset an IP2000?   Out of nowhere, the input sensitivity of one of my units is out of whack.   One unit volume is at 4.5 and the other is now at 26 to match it.

    Hello everyone,

    As there isn't an on/off switch for phantom power on the PPA200, not that I can see anyway, how does the unit know if a dynamic or a condenser microphone is being used?

      There's no magic at work. Phantom power will always be connected to the XLR inputs. This should not harm dynamic mics as long as they are wired correctly with balanced XLR cables.

      Thanks Rex - I was kind of hoping for magic but there you go.


      You say "should not harm dynamic mics", I'd really rather it was "most definately will not harm". I have an expensive Sennheiser dynamic vocal microphone which I wouldn't want to be fed with phantom power in any circumstance.


      Just out of curiosity, and if you know, why was no phantom power on/off switch part of the design of this unit? All my various other units with a phantom power option have an on/off switch or button - in fact the PPA200 is the only unit I've ever seen that doesn't have one.


      All my XLR cables are balanced.

      I would be happy to connect my Sennheiser, AKG and Rode dynamic mics to inputs with phantom. I would be less confident of unknown brands. If you are really concerned, you could get a phantom blocker .


       


      I don't know why the usual phantom on/off switch was not provided on the PPA200. We might guess that it was a design-to-cost decision.

      Blimey! A Phantom Blocker - I'd never have guessed such a device existed.


      Thank you Rex, you've been very helpful yet again.

    Hi!

    I am considering buying NuQ 118B-AN subs and I have a question regarding that model. In the picture presenting back of the speaker there are 4 bolts in each corner (16 in total). Are they indented for wheels? Does the speaker come with wheels in the box, as the iQ18B does? Manual nor product page says nothing about attaching wheels, so I am a bit confused.NuQ118B-AN_P0B4K_Rear_L

    Thank you in advance for clarification!

      @MateuszI'm not an employee but those holes are for the wheels and I would be very surprised if the wheels were not in the box-I would protest loudly if not

    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.

      @buskerer 


      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?

      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.

    Hello!

    I just purchased a Turbosound iP300 and had a question that is not addressed in the Quick Start Guide. I'll be using this speaker with my Laptop, Audio Modeling SWAM Wind Instrument software, EWI5000 and Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interfacel. I need to use both Left & Right output signals from the Focusrite. Is it OK to use both Inputs of the iP300 for this?

    Thank you,

    Doug

      Hi Doug ( @dhsherbert ), 


       


      Sorry no one replied to you earlier.  I just stumbled upon this when I was looking at your reverb question.  Yes, there's no issue with connecting to both inputs on the IP300 at the same time, whether it be from the same interface of different interfaces.


       


      Hope this helps, 


      Ken

    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, I got a Tannoy Arena Subwoofer from a friend for repair. I managed to get the amplifier board out of the magnificent(!) box and also got the power supply out. When on there’s 7.7V between CD- and CD+. If the amp isn’t in standby I assume that should be much more. 

    Things would get a lot easier from here if I got a service manual or schematics. Any hint will be appreciated! Tia Eduard. Power supplyPower supply

    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?

      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.

      @ccrump98 


      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?

      Hi @luchien ,


      Welcome to the forum. There is no polarity setting in the DSP (or on the back panel) - I checked. You will need to do that in the console output.

      Well I know Paul is one of the smartest guys I know on this forum but on the dsp crossover button  I believe you can change the polarity 180 for a cardioid use but I'm sure I'm wrong lol
