Behringer PMP500 Powered PA Mixer
If you need superior stereo sound for small club gigs, churches or speeches, but have to keep the outboard gear to a minimum, the 20-channel PMP5000 can really deliver. This 1,200-Watt mixer has built-in mic preamps and dual FX processors, as well as enough power to drive both mains and monitors, thanks to twin onboard 600-Watt power amps.
Massive Mono or Stunning Stereo
The PMP5000 gives you the choice of 2 x 600-Watt stereo, 2 x 600-Watt dual mono or 1,200-Watt bridged mono sound. Whether the center of attention happens to be a folk trio, a speech, or a synth-rock band with mind-boggling stereo patches, the PMP5000 can accommodate. This sonic versatility also makes it an excellent choice for churches, where vocals and stereo recordings often share face time.
Classic Control, State-of-the-Art Sound
Leave the mic preamps at home, because the quality of sound that was once only available in the studio is ready to go wherever you do. Twelve built-in, boutique-caliber mic preamps with switchable +48 V phantom power make it possible to use either dynamic or condenser mics with the PMP5000.
Built-in Digital Effects Processor
It's also equipped with two 24-bit FX processors, each giving you 100 mind-blowing digital effect presets such as delay, chorus and reverb. Apply them to any channel, as well as to the monitors and main output. In case you're pulling double duty as sound engineer and performer, the FX processors feature a footswitch jack for remote on/off.
Changing the Channels
The PMP5000 gives you excellent flexibility to accommodate whatever a performance requires. Channels 1-12 are for mics, guitars and other mono instruments. Stereo channels 13-20 are designed to work in pairs as stereo channels, or independently for more mono instruments. All mono channels have 3-band EQ, switchable Low cut filter for eliminating infrasonics, and Clip LEDs to indicate when the input signal is too hot.
The Ins and Outs
Use the CD/TAPE IN RCA inputs to feed in external stereo signals from CD players or tape decks. The VOICE CANCELLER switch eliminates the vocals from pre-recorded music for instant karaoke applications.
CD/TAPE OUT RCA outputs send line-level signals from the mixer to a recording device. The left and right output 1/4" connectors are there in case you need to connect more power amps. Connect monitor power amps or active monitor speakers to the MON SOUND output.
A STANDBY switch mutes all mic channels during breaks, preventing the microphones from picking up noise or interference. You can leave all faders untouched while you play a CD via the CD/TAPE inputs.
The FBQ Feedback Detection system automatically shows you which frequencies are causing feedback. Just touch the FBQ button and watch the red LEDs on the 7-band graphic EQ pinpoint show you which frequencies to adjust for optimized sound, without the feedback.
The PMP5000's POWER AMP switch toggles between three operating modes: MAIN, MON/MONO and BRIDGE (the power outputs of A and B on the back panel are added and provided at OUTPUT B). Dual mono mode allows you to use Output A for mono Mains and Output B for monitors. This clever functionality enables you to power both your mains and monitors, without the need for any additional power amps.
