OVERVIEW

Ultracompact 800W 16-channel powered mixer with 24-bit multi-FX processor and FBQ feedback detection system.

The Behringer PMH3000 Europower Powered Mixer has 16 channels (8 mono + 4 stereo), plus stereo tape returns, 2 monitor paths, and extremely flexible I/O options. The 2x400W (800W bridged mode) CoolAudio amplifier will easily handle a large audience for live music. Incredible sonic performance and super-light weight delivered in an ultracompact mixer that is nearly half the weight of conventional powered sound mixers.

Adding to the list of Behringer "big-mixer" features are: XPQ 3D surround sound effect, integrated Voice Canceler which removes vocals for karaoke applications, stereo 7-band graphic EQ with FBQ feedback detection, dual 12-segment LED output level meters and faders for precise level control of mono, main 1, and monitor 1 and 2 buses. The integrated mono output can be used to feed an external subwoofer. Stereo power amp inserts and phones/ctrl R output with dedicated level control for headphones or powered monitors are also onboard.

8 balanced low-impedance mic inputs with state-of-the-art IMP "invisible" mic preamps, low-cut filter and additional channel inserts plus balanced high-impedance line inputs for direct connection of line sources or high-output instruments. Full-featured channel strips include input level trim controls, signal and clip LED indicators, dual monitor sends, FX sends, mute and PFL functions, plus high-quality 60mm logarithmic faders for exact level control. Mono channels also include low-cut filters, inserts for connecting external processors and A/B switching for selecting the 1/4" TRS or RCA input connectors on channels 9”12. The dedicated CD/tape input allows you to connect a line-level stereo source so you can play music during your breaks without having to change the fader positions and lose your mix. The super-rugged carrying handle makes it easy to transport while professional Speakon connectors ensure outstanding performance and reliable connection.

First off, considering how light weight this unit is, it puts out a lot of power. My Peavy 4C power amp (which never let me down), with 210 watts/side at 8 ohms weights five times as much! I've owned this mixer for over a year, and used it for 10 gigs. I run it in spilt mono, with the A side running two JBL TR125's in series for the mains, and four Fender Squire SQ12M's run in a Parallel/Series configuration to make the impedance work out to 8 Ohms (wire each pair of monitors in parallel, and then series those pairs). Sure, I'm running the sliders almost full out, but I'm not getting any appreciable distortion in the vocals, and have even had the bar have us turn down. While I expected loads of headroom when I bought it, and then felt disappointed at first that I had to run the sliders so hot, over time I've decided that in comparison to the 100lb poweramp/effects rack box I used to lug around, if my girlfriend can haul the PA and poweramp in one hand, that's pretty impressive. Certainly if you playing big halls this won't cut it. But for anyone playing the 50 - 200 patron sized bars, this is perfect. Just plug in the mic cables, speaker cables, and go. No need for patch cords to run the amp and outboard effects.

I have been working with this board for 2 years now and I can say I am not happy with it.First, the power IS to weak, If you are tryign to record from this using the meter as your output determiner maintaining a below 0db level (clipping in terms of recording) and having good output levels is impossible (amp output is linked to master level fader, why!?!?).Second, Overall construction of this is less then par in my mind, there is an overall cheap feel to it (The board had a fader go bad and after some bending *shutter* it worked again.Third, sound quality is poor. If your just learning or gigging for fun thats fine, but if your serious I would advise going the proper route of a dedicated amplification system and seperate sound board.

Great board

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

I saw someone say they think the power amp in this thing is weak. I would like to know what they think a strong amp is, because I just bought this and some new peavey sp-5's, and the volume they put out is incredible. The combination really puts out some intense sound pressure levels. This mixer is definitely inferior to a Peavey or Yamaha, the store I bought it from had the sp-5's with a Yamaha emx-880 and the sound quality was much better(amazing). The sp-5's have an amazing hi-fi sound quality, better than a home stereo system, which I wasn't expecting from Peavey speakers.

PMH3000 Serious disappointment

By Bassduck

from Chicago, IL.

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

The PMH3000 has the possibilities of great things, however it's greatest obstacle is it is "WOEFULLY UNDERPOWERED". My band bought it on March 9, for our rehearsal system and it can not keep up. We have ordered a external power amp, I would not dare use this in a playing situation. But for the money the features are great. If you are a worknig band you will need extra power, we were running our mains and master at 80%, even briged there was no noticable increase in power or sound. I don't know how Behringer rates their output.

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

I love Behringer products. But this one dissapointed me after one of the amps blew 20 minutes out of the box. The style is great, the features are much more than other brands at higher prices. But it should work long enough for me love it.

PHM3000

By Mike Raby

from Port Charlotte, FL

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

This unit is a joke. It is advertised as 400 watts. It is no where near that. I use a Yamaha DTX-2 drum kit. The Behringer unit was to replace a 100 watt Radio Shack amp. I ran the RS unit on 2 out of 20 and could fill the room at our regular gig (country rock). I plugged in the Behringer and maxed out everything and could not even approach the volume of the RS unit.Don't buy this unit for a power amp.

Not enough power

By RytmicalBand

from Massachusetts

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

I bought one and returned it in exchange for Yamaha EMX5000. The 800watt power is something short of a bad joke. Overall, the board delivers nice and clean sound, has great features. I came across a bad suprise when it became evident that the PMH3000 did not have enough power to handle two Peavey SP-5 speakers at program.

Great board!

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

I can't believe the price I payed for this thing! The mic preamps are great, and the whole board including the power amp has virtually no distortion. I have to admit the power amp rating might be a little high, but it can still push some volume. To put it simply, this board with a couple speakers (JBL jrx's are awsome) will give your band professional quality sound.

Pretty Good Board, Excelent Value!

By dk123123dk

from Mass

See all my reviews

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

I run the board in mono/mono mode. One channel runs to (2) Peavey PR-15 in parallel (mains). The other channel runs to (1) Peavey 112M Floor Monitor. We play mostly small to medium sized clubs and this is perfect. Three Vocal mics, and one for the kick. Plenty loud if u know how to tweak it! Thats kinda the one problem with this board, it has SO many features that you could set it up wrong, and not reach the true potential. So keep messin with it!Very good starting point for a powered mixer. I plan to eventually get a nice power amp and a sub, for larger venues.But most places that are big have thier own board, which are usually a better brand. But for the money this thing can't be beat!

Incredible mixer for a small band. Looked long and hard for the best deal and this was the best based on cost and features. I was not disappointed when it arrived. We have used it live twice and the sound quality is great. I highly recommend it.

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

This mixer is just perfect for what I use. I won't really need all the different feects, esecially the "special ones" I have already tried them, and decided they will not be used in concert, maybe for fun though. Otherwise this is a great mixer.

Best PA for the Price

By AJ Maldonado

from Baja California, Tijuana

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

The PMH packs alot features that you wont find in this price range.. although the power amp wont pack that much punch (for big venues)it will sure power a couple if B1520's and fill a small to medium place.. we use it to power our gospel music in church. if you want to use it for bigger venues you will need a power amp for that..bottom line this mixer will do the job of a much expensive mixer for pennies (just dont forget the power amp for that bigger venue)

www.finkband.com uses it!

By Fink

from Grand Rapids, MI

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

You will not be able to find a better powered mixer for the price. The mixer is outstanding and extremely quiet. The amp has plenty of power if you know the correct way of using it. Of course you wouldn't be able to power two Peavey SP-5's without some extra power amps. The amp supplies 400 watts per side @ 4 OHMS and 800 watts bridged to ONE speaker (8 OHMS - 16 OHMS). If you have the right speakers, this thing will rock. I always use the 2 to 1 rule of thumb when it comes to power ratings. Get a power amp rated twice the power than your speakers. Great Product.... www.finkband.com uses it!

Lots of beginner fun

By Mdricks

See all my reviews

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

I have never played with sound recording of any kind prior to buying this board. I use it in conjunction with a computer I built and record my own tracks one at a time. With this board I was able to plug in both my guitars, my bass and the drum mikes all at the same time without having to constantly switch out. I have no problem moving from instrument to instrument laying each track over the other. I can get a song from idea to CD in an afternoon. There is still a lot about this board I don?t know but I am having a blast learning and haven?t had a problem yet I couldn?t figure out on my own. The manual is concise but informative. Seeing as how I will never make a dime on anything I do the price sure was right. I have had others come over and jam with me using this board as our mixer and the recorded tracks have been great on everything but the drums. The guitars sound studio. The only downside is I really expected more sound. What?s there is crisp and clear but after processing I cant get it very loud. Just something else I have to figure out I guess. Very happy with this purchase and would buy it again.

Bought and returned

By Brg921

from Campbellsville, KY

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

The Behringer 1000 is full of nice features and it is very pleasing to the eye for those concerned about looks. The problem with the system is that my car stereo has more volume capacity. I am sure that in a small room setting that it works fine. If you are looking to "fill a room" with high quality sound you need to look elsewhere. Possibly a larger wattage system.

Power rating is a joke

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

I use electric drums and bought this unit to replace a Radio Shack 100 watt amp. Figured it would give us a back up PA. It has no power! I believe the concept of Watts was pretty well established by James back in the 19th century. How Behringer can claim the power they do is beyond understanding.Musicians Friend return policy is the best.

For the Money...

By Behringer fan

from Plymouth, MI

Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMH3000 Powered Mixer:

I've read all these reviews and can't argue with the underpower comments. But, when you're spending this little what do you expect. For mixing and powering monitors it is a GREAT buy! Just use an external power amp for the mains. Plenty of options on this board.
