  • Peavey XR 600c ?

    I just purchased this used powered mixer a few days ago and have a question about it. I'm sure this an easy question to most of you.
    Downloaded the online manual also but still uncertain as this kind of stuff is fairly new to me.

    It has only one 1/4 in. monitor output on the front of it. So say I want to hook up two monitors, How do I go about this?
    Do I use a two into one, 1/4'' adapter, like this one?
    oops. sorry on the spelling in the thread title

      If I'm not mistaken, that box dates from the days when there was only a single amp in the unit and the monitor output is for an unpowered signal. You need to run that output to an amp and then your monitors unless you have a powered monitor. In that case, run to the first powered monitor and daisy chain to the next.

        Ok, you guys are full of useful info.
        I have another sunn powered mixer that we used to use. So just plug the sunn into the monitor output of the peavey and only run the monitors off the sunn, correct?

          isnt this just for practice? why do you need discrete outputs?

            This would work if you are using active (powered) speakers for monitors.

              Yes mostly practice but I'm also trying to learn how to use this thing the correct way so I don't ruin it by doing something dumb.

              I don't have real intentions of running the monitors during our practice sessions.

                For practice, you might be better off plugging your monitors into the main outputs so you can hear yourself sing. I assume there is no crowd to play to at rehearsal.

                  Probably true in most cases but our monitors we have right now sound like crap until I replace the speakers or get new ones.

                    Don't use that, it's a TRS adapter and has no business in what you are trying to do.

                    Use the SPEAKER outputs on the back. Since you are using it for practice, don't use the monitor function, use it as a "main" mixer for your monitors.
