the EFFECT control of the input channel
that you want to process.
E Use the MAIN EFFECT RTN control to
adjust the overall level of the processed
sound.
F Use the MONITOR EFFECT RTN control to
feed the processed signal to the MONITOR bus and subsequently MONITOR
OUTPUT.
Note: If the processed sound is distorted even
with an EFFECT RTN control turned down,
turn down the EFFECT control on each channel.

Installing an optional rack mount kit
You can rack-mount the EMX62M using an
optional rack mount kit (RK-88).
Rack mount kit RK-88
Installing the rack mount bracket
1 Remove the carrying handle by loosening and
removing four screws.
• Bracket × 2
• Screw × 6
Before you rack-mount the EMX62M, make sure
that sufficient ventilation will be maintained.
(Never install the unit in a sealed rack.)
If you are going to install multiple devices including the unit in a rack, keep a 1U space or more
between the devices. Use a blank panel with holes
for ventilation if you wish to insert a panel
between the devices.
You will need a 7U space to install the rack
mount. After installation, the unit will project
62 mm from the front surface of the rack.
2 Attach one of the rack mount brackets to the side
of the EMX62M using three included screws.
62
3 Attach the other rack mount bracket in the same
way.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
The following table describes the possible malfunctions of this demvice, and the appropriate actions to be
taken in each case.
Problem
The POWER
indicator is lit.
Sound is no
longer output from the
speakers.
Cause
Action
The load on the amplifier of this
device was too great, and the protection circuit for the amplifier has
operated. Possible reasons for the
excessive load are an excessive level
setting in the channel control section
or main section, insufficient ventilation, or insufficient load impedance
of the connected speakers.
Please wait. When the device cools off, normal operation
will resume automatically. However, please check the following three points to prevent the problem from recurring.
• If the level setting is excessive, lower it to the nominal
level. You can refer to the peak level indicators of the
main section when doing so.
• If the device is not ventilated sufficiently, refer to the cautions given at the beginning of this manual and take
appropriate measures to insure adequate ventilation.
• If the load impedance (including a short) is too low, refer
to the section on rear panel (page 14) and change the
connections so that the impedance is correct.
Connections between devices have
come loose.
Inspect the connections, and correct any faulty connections.
Other
The device may have malfunctioned. Please contact your
dealer.

Powered Mixer Q&A
Q: The built-in effect is not effective.
A: The ON switch in the DIGITAL EFFECT section may not be
turned on. Or, you have adjusted the EFFECT control in the
Channel section or the MAIN EFFECT RTN control.
Q: The monitoring sound from the speakers is not powerful
enough relative to the level of the input sound.
Q: The stereo output from the synthesizer has been routed
to the Super Hi-Z jack of channel 6, but the monitoring
sound is not stereo.
Q: The signal is sent from the EFFECT OUT jack to the
connected effect processor. Then the effect sound is
returned to the AUX IN jack. However, no signal is input
to the mixer.
Q: An external powered speaker is connected to the MONITOR-OUTPUT jack.
However, the signal is not sent to the speaker even
when the MASTER control in the MONITOR section is
turned.
Q: Can the Low-Z jack and the Hi-Z jack be used at the
same time?
Q: Can a single speaker be connected to the mixer?
EMX62M—Owner’s Manual
A: The equalizer LOW control for each channel may be set to
negative values.
A: You can use Super Hi-Z (or LINE) 1 and 2 jacks at the same
time.
However, they are internally routed into a mono channel, and
therefore the signals from 1 and 2 jacks are output as mono
signal.
A: The AUX IN control in the MAIN section may not be rotated to
right.
A: The MONITOR controls for input channels may not have been
adjusted.
A: You cannot use the Low-Z jack and the Hi-Z jack for the same
channel at the same time.
A: Yes. Use a speaker with an impedance of 4-8 ohms.
