    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.

    We're using a pair of B115Ds as our PA system for our three piece band that plays rock covers in bars. We only usually put one vocal mic and a guitar DI through it, but occasionally we mic up the bass drum (but we're looking to buy a sub for that).


    My question is on where to set the level control. If I was using passive speakers with separate power amps, I'd have the power amps on full (ie 0dB) and then control the volume from the desk. With the B115Ds, does the same principle apply? Shoud I have the output set to Max and then control volume by limiting the signal from the desk? I guess the quustion is whereabouts on the dial is 0dB? What has confused me is the marking that says "Line" and then "Mic". Am I risking damage/distortion if I put a line level signal inand have the level set way into the "Mic" region of the control?Capture.JPG

      The best way is to first set a good gain structure on the mixer, set the output fader to 0dB and then raise the gain on the speaker to get the required volume level. Setting the speaker gain too high could result in distortion with line-level signals.

      Certainly yes to Rex's reply. But as a rule of thumb I have found that with Behringer mixers and various powered speakers I have found the 12 o'clock position to usually be a good starting point.


      P.S. Why are the latest posts not word wrapping properly all of a sudden?
