This powerhouse features 20 channels (12 mono + 4 stereo), plus stereo tape returns, 2 - 24-bit/46 kHz effects processors with 99 great-sounding Virtualizer presets each, 2 monitor paths, and extremely flexible I/O options. 2x400W (800W bridged mode) CoolAudio amplifier to drive your FOH and/or monitor speakers.

    With the revolutionary Behringer CoolAudio amplifier technology you get enormous power, incredible sonic performance, and super-light weight delivered in an ultracompact mixer that is nearly half the depth and weight of conventional powered mixers.

    XPQ 3D surround effect, stereo 7-band graphic EQ with FBQ feedback detection, dual 12-segment LED output level meters as well as faders for precise level control of mono, main 1, monitor 1 & 2, and FX1 & 2 send outputs. The dedicated mono output with adjustable low-pass filter can be used to feed an external subwoofer.

    well I have purchased a pmh 5000 mixer from my wifes uncle, and he said it wasn't working right that the amp overheated and shut down, well it was about 105 to 107 degree's outside when he used it, but to make a long story short, the power section was not hurt at all, and I Set it up as a 8 ohm and a 4 ohn load and they both would hurt my ears in volume, because a mixers should be run with trim at about 3/4 volume that is what the little yelow light is for, and channel fader a full unity gain which is 0 db's, and same as masters too, because that is the cleanest mix, and you do have to use nuetrik nl4c speakon ends nothing else works right, anyway I have been in live sound for 25+ years and even the peavey xr series had to be run that way, because you have to have a good signal going through you're amps to do anything decent,and I also use nady ps112 mains and cgm elm 12" monitors, and yes all amps are full power rated at 4 ohms' thats standard practice, to me this is a wonderful peice of equipment, and the 400w x 2 is correct at full power if you can achieve full power let me know because feed back would be extreme, and most people don't know that you're ears can't handle over 101db's for long periods of time, and true 400w per channel you would be deaf after the first note, that is well over 110db's of S.P.L or sound pressure level. plus you would hurt the audience as well, 90 dbs at 150w is 8 hours of exposure of spl. without ear damage, anymore than that you can loose you're hearing,

    While buying a new sound system for my church, I came across this piece of equipment. At first glance it seemed like the answer to my prayers, but once I recieved it I realized that it didn't have the channels that I wanted, or the power. If you buy this you need to go ahead and buy separate speaker, and monitor amps, because this machine just doesn't have the power. I guess that it has good mixing qualities but if you want it to be the main amplifier, you are waisting your money. In comparison to our old Crate 8 channel power mixer 750W this brand new "top of the line" Behringer 20 channel powered mixer 400W x 2 is a piece of junk. We had bought new condenser mics for our auditorium one of which went on the podium. While connected to our old mixer we could only turn the volume up to 1, on a scale of 1 to 10, before it became to loud. While connected to the new mixer we had to have it turned up to 9, on a scale of 1 to 10. I guess what they should have done is sell it as just a plain mixer, not a POWERED mixer, big difference.

    The best yoy can buy for this money

    By Cor-N-E2I

    from Holland, Europe

    Ik work with it now for two years and I'm happy with it. The features are great for what I had to pay for the PMH5000. This unit is verry wanted. Ours was stolen and I bought one back for a nice price.

    Great Sound

    By Busiman

    from Ironwood, MI

    At first I thought I may have made a mistake, but after I reread the very simple manual and made some adjustsments I think this a great unit for most small indoor shows, bars and halls. The power is a little weak, but I will get another amp for my speakers and that should do it. I have my monitors running through another amp already. I know now that I made a smart choice. I was looking for the smallest best system I could find on a budget. I have the bass, three guitars, two vocals, and 10 drum mics, mixed very well. I did have to turn off the phantom power and replace my condensor mics above the cymbals with standard mics. Effects, EQ, with the Feedback detector works very well. But I do have a feedback distroyer between board and the monitor amp cicuit and that does catch quite a few, when no one is at the board. We don't have a sound man yet. I will invest in more Behringer equipment in the future! And I most definately will do more business with this company!!

    PMH 5000

    By RoyBoy

    from CHIPLEY, FL

    Great mixer so far!! Had it about 2 months. So far so good. I dont get why everyone complains about low power though. I drive 2 Nady 15' mains and a pair of Behringer 18' subs for the FOH. I have 4 Kustom 12' monitors driven by a 300 watt Nady amp and it just kicks ass. We run everything thru the board but we do this with the line outs from the amps. That way we get a good mix and the amps act as monitors. The drums and 1 accoustic guitar are the only things other than the mic's that are plugged directly into the board. The thing is loud enough for any outside function and we have no problems in the clubs. The vocals stand up tall out in front not hiding in a layer of mud. The highs are crystal clear and the bass is moving the walls. What more could you ask for ?

    Behringer (under)power

    By The Ax Guy

    from Pahrump, NV

    LET THE BUYER BEWARESince I'm looking at the possibility of buying a powered mixer for small gigs, I did a bit of homework. Here's what I found:In May, Behringer's new PMP series powered mixers will hit the shelves. Behringer is advertising that the PMP5000 "delivers 1,200 Watts of massive power". Fortunately for us, in the manual which can be downloaded from the Behringer website, they finally disclose the shady method which they're using to sell their powered mixers...The TRUTH is that it delivers 1200 watts PEAK, bridged, into an 8ohm load. They then claim that it is 900 watts RMS, bridged, into an 8ohm load. This ratio is incorrect. EITHER it's 900 RMS *OR* 1200 peak. If it's 900 RMS, the peak would be in the neighborhood of 1800 watts. If it's 1200 peak, the RMS would only be in the neighborhood of 600 watts. I'm more inclined to believe the latter.As for the rest of the specs, read 'em and weep:Both channels driven into 4ohm loads:450 RMS, 600 peak ... again, ratio improbable.Both channels driven into 8ohm loads:215 RMS, 300 peak ... again, ratio improbable.Given that they're advertising this as "1200 watts", it's logical that they've been previously advertising their powered mixers at PEAK power. Before now, they've never given RMS and peak ratings, and have never specified which rating was being given. This explains why everyone is saying that Behringer powered mixers seem underpowered ... they ARE!The somewhat reliable rule of thumb is that an amp's RMS rating is about half of it's peak rating. So if you have a Behringer powered mixer, take the wattage claimed by Behringer, cut it in half, and you'll be close to it's true RMS power ... which is how REPUTABLE companies market their amps.Applying this reasoning to the PMH5000:According to the manual, the specs are 600W bridged into 8ohms, and 400w per channel into 4ohm loads. No spec is given for dual 8ohm loads.Dividing these peak power ratings in half, the result is 300W bridged into 8ohms, and 200W per channel into 4ohms. And, although they did not specify, the amps probably deliver about 100W RMS each, into two 8ohm loads.If you think that this is incorrect, take your unit to a tech, have it tested, and post the results. The service will be covered by warranty since the complaint is lack of power.

    think about what you need it for

    By grim-tULqz

    from ft. richardson, AK

    This is a good mixer. It could use a little more power. But if you know what your doing and how to set it up it can get the job done. If you need power look some where else. Or think about getting a power amp for your speakers. But all around this a good mixer.

    Great purchase!

    By Window Joe-N0iyY

    from Evansville, IN

    I do the sound for our church and we use this board. It was there when I took over and I have to say, we use the effects and they sound awesome, it is very powerful, plenty to drive our old shure speakers as loud as we want and they sound great. I have had no problems, it's easy to use, very clear great sound from mains and monitor channels. Watch your ohms and your gains, or it will sound like junk. When I took over, they had this mixer setup all wrong, after I took over I reset everything from scratch. On that first day everyone was saying how it never sounded that good. We now are needing more channels and I will be buying another Behringer when the time comes. Great powered board for the price hands down.

    Weak, but nice

    Thinking 12 channels, mic everything up? forget it...This is no where near 800 watts - feels like 300, tops. But, the effects, eq, pre-amps, etc are really nice sounding. We wound up using it as a mixer, and hooking up powered speakers to boost volume. If you're doing an acoustic, small room thing, micing acoustic instruments and vocals - it's great. If you're a rock/country band micing drums, amps, etc? Get a Peavey or Mackie.
