Behringer

1600W 10-Channel powered mixer with dual multi-FX processor and FBQ Feedback Detection System.

The Behringer EUROPOWER PMP1680S Powered Mixer (2 x 800W stereo, 1600W bridged mode) produces even more power than its predecessors while maintaining famously low weight and high efficiency. The EUROPOWER PMP1680S mixer employs Class-D technology including a switch-mode power supply, significantly reducing weight and heat. The 10-Channel Behringer PMP1680S boasts 8 high-quality built-in mic preamps, 24-bit FX processors, and FBQ Feedback Detection.

What is Class-D Technology?
Instead of operating relatively continuously like Class AB circuits, Class-D amps switch on and off thousands of times per second, delivering power only when needed. In other words, the amplifier is either fully on or fully off, which significantly reduces power losses from the output devices given off as heat. Less heat means the amps don't need massive heat sinks, and that makes them lighter. This no-compromise design means the EUROPOWER PMP1680S mixer will deliver full power with incredible fidelity all night long, without the need for lengthy rest cycles.

When used in conjunction with switching-mode power supplies, which don't require huge and heavy transformers, Behringer's Class-D amplifiers provide tremendous dynamic punch and superior fidelity. The resulting speaker systems are much lighter, making them easy to transport and set up.

Massive Mono or Stunning Stereo
EUROPOWER PMP1680S gives you the choice of 2 x 800-Watt stereo, 2 x 800-Watt dual mono mode (giving you a mono version of the main signal through one powered output plus a mono version of all monitor send signals through the second powered input) or 1,600-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 EUROPOWER PMP1680S mixers 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. Built-in, boutique-caliber mic preamps with switchable +48 V phantom power make it possible to use either dynamic or condenser mics with the EUROPOWER PMP1680S. It gives you 8 mic inputs.

Built-in Digital Effects Processor
The EUROPOWER PMP1680S comes equipped with a 24-bit FX processor, 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 processor features a footswitch jack for remote on/off. Of course, if you have treasured outboard gear you've grown attached to, the EUROPOWER PMP1680S can integrate them into the mix while leaving out the built-in FX processor.

Changing the Channels
The EUROPOWER PMP1680S mixer has excellent flexibility to accommodate whatever a performance requires. You get 8 channels for mics, guitars, and other mono instruments. Stereo channels 7-10 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.

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 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 can be used for a variety of purposes, including connecting more power amps. Connect monitor power amps or active monitor speakers to the MON SOUND output. Powered outputs on this mixer are available in professional Speakon-compatible format.

Small, Simple, Superb
Medium-sized events call for a lightweight, easy-to-use powered mixer. The EUROPOWER PMP1680S mixer is one of the most efficient, affordable mixers for the job, and is even suitable for use as a pure analog mixer or as a pure power amplifiers. With new technological advantages and incredible built-in features, it's easier than ever to lend exceptional sound quality to all kinds of public performances.

    Bought this unit a little over 2 years ago. Had a decent sound, was a lighter weight than other brands and looked nice with all the lights on it. However, being a professional musician who makes a full-time living at performing, Behringer just couldn't take the constant use and eventually died after only 2 years from purchase. Trying to get it repaired was a nightmare and I came to find out that is was not worth the time or money to fix since most repair technicians consider it to be a sub-standard product and not worth the money needed to repair it after the warranty has expired.
    If you are a professional in the music business you are better off spending the extra money to buy units made by companies such as Yamaha or Mackie. I've had my Yamaha EMX 640 Powered Mixer since 1999 and it's still going strong. I actually bought the Behringer PMP1680 to replace the Yamaha but it turned out that the Yamaha had to replace the Behringer. Bottom line, it's not a good product that you can count on.

    Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMP1680S 10-Channel Powered Mixer:

    Had this for over 6 months. This was a great upgrade for our band. I love all the features it offers and it is super light-weight! The matching speakers are also light-weight and the package is well worth the money. It doesn't pull as much power as our old head, yet gives more sound. Each channel is very clear, but even after EQ, the head is a bit noisy over the speakers (but not on direct line recording); however, once you start playing you don't really hear the hiss. I've been in the music biz for 30+ years and this head is one of the best deals ever - perfect for up to a 5-piece band that plays small to medium venues. We've had this at outdoor festivals as well as indoor gigs with horrid acoustics, and it performs wonderfully anywhere. I love the feature it has that allows you to run a line directly from the head to a recorder (we use the Tascam Portastudios). The karaoke feature isn't that great because it doesn't pull all the vocals out, but we aren't a karaoke sort of group anyway. The feedback feature is helpful but not as fantastic as I had expected. The onboard effects are excellent and have individual mix controls for each bank and each channel – this is a fantastic feature! The channel pad feature works super well as does the clip feature. Overall, this is an excellent head for the right purpose.

    Comments about Behringer EUROPOWER PMP1680S 10-Channel Powered Mixer:

    I have been using this amp/mixer for about 6 months now and I have to say that I am very pleased!

    I have used this is may way, from recording, to running a band pa, to it's primary use, as my mains amp and mixer for my mobile dj service.

    I run a microphone, mixer, and ipad when i dj. I have the mic on channel 1, ipad on channel 7/8, and mixer on channel 9/10. I run the mixer and ipad on the monitor channel only. I then run a trs out of the monitor out into my processor in mono, then into a 3 way crossover. I then run the high and mid back into the mixer into channels 5 and 6 with pad turned on. I then run those channels and the microphone to the main out and then to the behringer 15 xl speakers via bridge mode.

    I love this mixer/amp! It is so versatile and unique! Without question, buy it!

    This amp I have owned for 3 years and has been pushed to its limit on a lot of shows, rocking blues band,alternative music band and general parties hooked up with mono. It has copped a fair beating and just kept working. Mind you at this rate of abuse it would at some stage stop working, but for now it's still doing it's thing. Excellent little amp.

      I use this mixer to run sound for a high school marching band. We mic the Marimba, Xylophone, Vibraphone, Piano, Timpani, Bells, auxiliary percussion rack, soloists, etc... All the features are amazing on this product and it is a great outdoor piece of equipment (weather permitting)

      The fx processors are nice too! we run a chorus and phaser on the bells and windchimes, makes for a really cool and unique sound! I also just purchased one for personal use with 2 15" speakers. The school used 4x 12" speakers, and it pushed them and then some without any problems! The bass is heard loud and clear in the football stadium (with all 4 speakers laying as monitors in the front facing the crowd).

      If you need a mixer and an amp that will both give you lots of functionality, great power and reliability, this is the product!

      I can't wait to receive mine and start using it! I've been djing for 8 years, and this is the first piece of equipment that has literally blown me away!

        Very musical. It is so light, it's hard to imagine that it puts out the performance it does. Had our first gig with the 1680s last night, had about 300 people in a medium sized hall. It was powering 4 15" Carvins and did a great job.
