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,

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.

Great purchase!

By Window Joe-N0iyY

from Evansville, IN

See all my reviews

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.

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

See all my reviews

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 ?

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.

Let's put it into perspective.

By Buster-XvC_.

from Jacksonville, FL.

Anyone considering purchasing a powered mixer needs to think of two things; What are your needs? i.e. power and mixing capabilities AND what is your budget? I own this mixer and the first thing I can say is that this is the BEST POWERED MIXER FOR THE MONEY!!!...remember!.. for the MONEY!!! There are better... but, not for this price. For an all in one P.A. package this is a great purchase. I am not a weekend warrior. I make my living entirely from working in the entertainment business in professional sound. ANYONE WHO SAYS THIS MIXER IS CRAP BECAUSE OF LACK OF POWER DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO OPERATE IT PROPERLY. Now those who say the amp is not very powerful are not wrong but, FOR THE PRICE it does a great job. I've used this piece, ONLY, to run a front of house mix and in-ear monitors for 1, 2 & sometimes 3 piece acts. Any competent sound engineer worth his/her weight should be able to do the same and achieve quality results for his/her listeners. Just remember to buy that which suits your needs. Educate yourself on how to properly interpret the specifications listed for the product you wish to buy. Read everything the manufacturer has to say but, absorb the info with common sense. There is often alot of hype and fluff about their product that can cloud your purchase decision. Be a patient & educated buyer. :)

Don't be fooled!

By Reggie409

Ask me a question

People who have written reviews for this mixer and complained about the power and quality of the product do not know how to properly use this mixer. Granted it is extremely important to attach the right speakers to the mixer and make sure the impedence is 4 ohms. If you attempt to use an 8 ohm load with this mixer you will NOT be happy with the results. Thw PMH-5000 is extremely musical and reproduces your sound faithfully. It is very flexible and can be setup in a variety of ways. The effects could be better but most are useable. Forget about the vocal eliminator. This feature is useless. Overall the mixer is an excellent product and worth every penny I paid for it.

Passes the test

By Micro Chip

from Vancouver, WA

Just got the new 5000. Spent many hours testing.Plenty of volume from Yamaha Club Series - 110db with headroom to spare. You can push the input trims to above 0VU point with little distortion -shows good built-in headroom. Very quiet preamps. Flexible amp routing makes it easy to switch to stereo or mono/monitor channel for various venues. I have found that the monitor sends at 12 oclock position and monitor faders at 0db provide proper levels to feed the monitor amps. Simplifies setup for less experienced personnel.Love the parallel FX Sends. For church I now have enough monitor sends and two separate effects channels are icing on the cake. I like the way you can have an effect running, turn the knob to select a different effect and tap it to enable the new effect. Great for vocal recitals or songs that need different effects in different sections of the song. And with 2 channels the task is even easier.Having the tape outputs pre-fade is wonderful. I can adjust the house without messing up the tape man. Also having independent Main 1, Main 2 and Mono faders and outputs provides fader controlled feeds for video, HOH, cybercasting and whatever else I need. The only bad mark would be that the vocal canceller should be on stereo channels 15/16 instead of cd return. This would allow monitor sends for vocalists with tape/cd accompaniment. Fans are a bit noisy at power up but fade to a whisper quickly. I ran it loud for an hour and it did not get warm. Good ventillation and heat sinking. Class D does it. Good metering and signal routing. Half the weight of the powered mixers we are replacing. A good buy. We have the MX3282A and several UB802's - all great values for the $$$. The 5000 is no exception.

All that and much, much, more.

By Annointed with the 88's

from North Charleston, SC

See all my reviews

I bought this mixer based on it's reviews alone and I am happy to report that this mixer has everything and more including plenty of power. The amp fans are extremely quiet(so quiet, you actually have to check to make sure they're working). Running the board in stereo provides ample power for small to medium venues and in bridged mode you have ample power for medium large to large venues with lots of headroom and no sound loss. I especially like the speaker processor feature on this amp. It really gives superior clarity and strength to the sound quality coming from your mains. In my opinion, great mixer that should cost more but thankfully it doesn't. Thanks Behringer and this company.

Not enough juice 4 the moose.

By George

from Lexington

See all my reviews

I tried this mixer on 2 Yorkville 200W 8-Ohm speakers... I was very disappointed... since I had to have the faders all the way near 90 percent to get any sound out. I don't think that the unit was defective but it worked since sound came out... I was hoping that I would be at say the 30 percent level on my main fader and mic faders to see a decent sound... it had to be pushed all the way to around 90 percent. My advice, study about amps and see what speakers you use and their resistance in Ohms and see that that resistance allows amplification power advertised (800W). I shipped it back and will do my homework before I make a purchase....

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.

Check your Speaker Load

By Mike West of Take2

from Obion,Tn

We use this mixer and Love it. I love the ability to control the dual effects with the foot switch. The pitch bender settings make a very realistic harmony effect on slower songs, and I can kick em on and off whenever i need em. One note, though. Use this system with a 4 ohm load for the most power and volume.

First of all anyone who says that this mixer does not have enough power, certainly dose not know what they are talking about. This is about the best set a person could wish for I run a whole band through this mixer AND AMP, and it does a wonderful job for barley the price it could be sold for.

Good mixer NO amp

By Patrick-xd_g-

from College Station, TX

The mixer works great, but just like everyone said the amp is an 4 ohm amp when plugged into 8 ohm speakers you barely get any sound, you can use the built in amp for monitors and buy the behringer 2500 series amp for your mains and it works great.

Features galore , but no punch

By Abel

from Durban ,SA

This powered mixer is nothing more than a mixer. It realy has GREAT!!! mixing capabilities. However, the 800W (400W x 2) amp power is a rumour. There is not enough power, even in the smallest of venues. I also own the PMX 2000 and believe it or not, it blows this system away.

be knowledgeable

By Stephen-QJZLD

from Sophia, NC

See all my reviews

If you are looking to buy this mixer, or any mixer for that matter, think about your application, and simply READ the specifications that Musician's Friend conveniently posted here for you to see, and hopefully cope with. I own this mixer, which never leaves our practice area, and was bought to handle mearly vocals during practice sessions, pushing two JBL monitors. I have a 32 channel Mackie with Crown amps, and mainly EAW mains and subs, and their application is as you can guess live sound. I have, however, attempted using this mixer once at a venue, as a test of its real capabilities, and did the job fine. NOTE I did NOT use the amplifier built in, i did use my Crowns, but for the price, I placed it back into it's correct position as a faithful practice mixer. This ins't your top of the line, mind blowing mixer, but it does what it is INTENDED to do or more with the correct equipment to back it up, and knowledge of the unit itself.
