To provide you with a clear structure, we have grouped the
control elements according to their function. They can easily be
found on the enclosed numbered illustrations. If you need more
detailed information on specific topics, please visit our web site
at www.behringer.com.
1 INTRODUCTION
EUROPOWER PMP1000/PMP3000/PMP5000
PMP3000/PMP5000: When you press the PFL button (Pre
Fader Listening) the left LED
shows the pre-fader
input gain of the channel. Adjust the optimum input gain (0
. When PFL is on, the corresdB) with the TRIM control
ponding LED illuminates.
2 CONTROL ELEMENTS
A detailed description of all functions of your power mixer can
be found in the following chapters. Please also refer to the
enclosed sheet with the numbered illustrations to get a good
overview of the control layout.
If the LEVEL SET LED
is illuminated constantly, the
signal is within the optimum operating level range. However,
if the CLIP LED indicates that the input gain is too high, you
should reduce the level slightly with the TRIM control. The
CLIP LED should never be illuminated all the time, only with
signal peaks.
2.1 Mono and stereo channels
Use the TRIM control to adjust the input gain. Be sure to
set this control fully counter-clockwise before you connect
or disconnect a signal source to an input. TRIM controls
both the microphone and the LINE input. The black scale
shows the microphone gain (+10 to +60 dB on channels
with XENYX MIC PREAMPS and 0 to +40 dB on conventional
microphone inputs; PMP1000 only, channels 5/6 and 7/8).
The MUTE switch mutes the channel in the main mix. The
pre-fader signals (monitor buses) remain operative. When
MUTE is pressed, the corresponding control LED illuminates.
The channel fader controls the channel signal level in the
main mix.
The “LINE” scale indicates the sensitivity of the LINE input,
ranging from +10 to -40 dBu.
2.1.1 Input section
PMP1000: The mono/stereo combination channels 5/6 and
7/8 have a sensitivity of +20 to -20 dBu.
The LEVEL SET LED illuminates when an optimum operating
level has been adjusted.
Each mono input channel is equipped with a balanced
microphone input (XLR connector) which provides
+48 V phantom power for condenser microphones at the
touch of a button (see rear panel).
The mono channels are equipped with a high-slope LOW
CUT filter eliminating unwanted low-frequency signals like
rumble noise.
PMP1000: The two stereo channels 5/6 and 7/8 have an
additional balanced XLR microphone input with +48 V
phantom power.
PMP3000/PMP5000 (stereo channels): Press the A/B button
to switch from 1/4" jacks to RCA connectors, and vice
versa. Position “A” = 1/4" jacks; position “B” = RCA
connectors.
Each mono input features one LINE IN connector
(1/4" jack), which can be used with either balanced or
unbalanced signals.
The HIGH control in the EQ section governs the high
frequency range of the respective channel.
Use the MID control to boost or cut the midrange
frequencies.
PMP5000: The PMP5000 has an additional semi-parametric
filter for the midrange frequencies in the mono channels
(tunable from 100 Hz to 8 kHz). Adjust the boost/cut with
the MID control, and the frequency with the FREQ control.
The stereo channels contain a stereo EQ section. The cutoff frequencies of the high and low bands are 12 kHz and
80 Hz respectively, while the center frequencies of the
high-mid and low-mid bands are 3 kHz and 400 Hz
respectively.
With the MON(ITOR) control you can adjust the volume of
each channel in the monitor mix.
The PMP3000 and PMP5000 feature a second MON control
(MON 2) for the volume of the second monitor bus.
The FX control determines the signal level sent from each
channel to the built-in effects processor; this signal is also
present at the FX SEND jack (see
).
PMP1000: This does not apply to the mono/stereo
combination channels 5/6 and 7/8.
PMP1000: The stereo channels 5/6 and 7/8 feature an
additional XLR connector for microphones whose gain
can be set from 0 to +40 dB.
Please note that the effects processor signal will
be inaudible, as long as the FX TO MON/MAIN
controls
,
,
are set fully counterclockwise.
The BAL(ANCE) control for the stereo channels
corresponds to the PAN control for the mono channels. It
determines the relative volume of the left and right input
signals before they are routed to the stereo main output.
When you connect a mono line signal to a stereo
channel, always use the left input. The mono signal
will then be reproduced by both sides equally.
The stereo channels have a TRIM control for gain
adjustment, with the input sensitivity ranging from +20 to
-20 dB.
The PMP5000 has two FX controls (FX 1 and FX 2), so that
you can use two effects simultaneously. Accordingly, the
PMP5000 also has two effect aux buses, which have one
and
).
output jack in common (see
The PAN(ORAMA) control determines the position of the
channel signal in the stereo main mix.
Please remember to use either the microphone or
the line input on a specific channel. Never use both
at the same time!
INSERT I/O. Insert points or simply inserts are used to
process a signal with dynamic processors or equalizers.
They are pre-fader, pre-EQ and pre-MON/FX SEND. Unlike
reverb and other effects, which are usually added to the
dry signal, dynamic processors usually process the entire
signal. So, aux send buses are not the best solution.
Dynamic processors need to be inserted directly into the
signal path. Once processed, the signal then returns to the
mixing console at the same point where it left. Signal
interruption takes place only if a plug is inserted into the
corresponding jack (1/4" stereo plug: tip = signal output,
ring = input). All mono input channels are equipped with
inserts.
The LOW control allows you to boost/cut the low frequency
range.
Be sure to switch off your audio system before you
activate the phantom power supply to protect your
monitor speakers from switch-on thumps.
Each stereo channel has two line-level inputs (1/4" jacks)
for the left and right channels. If only the jack marked “L” is
used, the channel is mono. The signal will then be
reproduced on both sides.
PMP1000: This does not apply to the mono/stereo
combination channels 5/6 and 7/8.

EUROPOWER PMP1000/PMP3000/PMP5000
PMP1000: Channels 13/14 and 15/16 are routed to
the main mix without additional tone or volume
adjustment. For example, using the channels 13/14
and 15/16 you can connect a submixer and utilize
the PMP1000’s power amplifier.
PMP3000: The stereo channels 9/10 and 11/12 are equipped
with additional RCA connectors.
PMP5000: The stereo channels 13/14 and 15/16 are
equipped with additional RCA connectors.
PMP3000/PMP5000: Please note that you need to set
the A/B selector
to A (1/4") or B (RCA) when you
connect a signal to the input.
Instead of a fader this channel has a rotary LEVEL control.
PMP1000/PMP5000: If STANDBY is pressed, all input
channels are muted. During pauses you can prevent the
microphones from picking up noise or interference, which
would then be reproduced by the P.A. system or possibly
damage the speaker diaphragms. The benefit is that all
faders can be left untouched while you play back music
). There is also
from CD via the CD/TAPE inputs (see
no need to move the faders and lose your mix.
The phantom power supply provides the voltage necessary
for the operation of condenser microphones. Use the
PHANTOM switch to activate the supply for the XLR
connectors of the input channels. The +48 V LED will
illuminate when phantom power is on. In most cases,
dynamic microphones can still be used, as long as they are
connected in a balanced configuration. If in doubt, please
contact the manufacturer of your microphone!
2.2 Equalizer and FBQ
With phantom power switched on, you must never
connect microphones to the console (or to a stage/
wall box). Also, be sure to mute the monitor/P.A.
speakers, before you turn on the phantom power
supply. After switching on, please allow the system
to stabilize for about one minute, before you adjust
the input gain.
Caution! Never use unbalanced XLR connectors
(pins 1 and 3 interconnected) on the MIC input jacks,
if you are going to use the phantom power supply.
Your power mixer features a graphic 7-band equalizer,
which allows you to fine-tune the sound depending on the
room acoustics. In the center position the frequency
response is not effected. To boost or cut a certain
frequency range, simply move the corresponding fader
upward or downward respectively.
PMP1000:
MAIN: In the “MAIN” position the mixer works as a stereo
amplifier.
MON: In this mode the monitor signal is present at OUTPUT
A
and the main signal at OUTPUT B
(both are
mono).
PMP1000: The switch FBQ FEEDBACK DETECTION
performs the same function as on the PMP3000 and
PMP5000.
BRIDGE (bridged mono mode): In BRIDGE AMP MODE
the output power of OUTPUT A is added to that of OUTPUT
B, i.e. OUTPUT B delivers twice its normal output power.
Use the MAIN/MON 1 switch to select whether the equalizer
processes the main or the monitor mix. When not pressed,
the stereo equalizer processes only the main mix. When
the switch is pressed, the EQ processes only the monitor
mix.
PMP3000/PMP5000:
MAIN L/MAIN R. In position MAIN MIX, the mixer works as
a stereo amplifier.
PMP1000: The MAIN MIX/MONITOR switch performs the
same function as on the PMP3000 and PMP5000.
MON 1/MONO. In this mode the monitor 1 signal is present
at OUTPUT A
and the main signal at OUTPUT B
(both are mono).
6
Please note that the equalizer behaviour depends
on the position of the AMP MODE switch (see
).
Press the FBQ IN switch to activate the
Feedback Detection system (the FBQ will be
active only if you have switched on the
before). Frequencies causing
equalizer
feedback are shown by brightly lit fader
LEDs. All other LEDs will be darker. Now, cut the frequency
range in question until feedback disappears (the LED gets
darker or goes out). This function is available for both the
main and monitor mix.
The AMP MODE switch determines the mode of operation
of the PMP amplifier stage:
Information on how to properly connect your
speaker with regard to polarity can be found on the
rear of the unit (PIN assignment) (see also
and
).
PMP5000: Use the BEHRINGER SPEAKER PROCESSING
switch to activate a filter that allows you to adapt the mixer
to the characteristics of your loudspeakers. If the speakers
have a limited frequency response in the bass range, this
function allows you to filter this range at the output signal
of the mixer and thus adapt it optimally to the frequency
response of the speakers.
PMP3000/PMP5000: Each of the two stereo channels has
two monitor controls (MON 1/2) and a LEVEL control
.
Like the other channels, they also feature a PFL switch.
Please note that the power delivered to the speaker
connected to OUTPUT B in BRIDGE AMP MODE is
considerably higher than the power provided to the
speakers wired to the parallel speaker outputs.
Please read the information given on the rear panel
of the power mixer.
Press the EQ IN switch to activate the equalizer. The fader
LEDs illuminate when the EQ is on.
BRIDGE (bridged mono mode): In BRIDGE AMP MODE
the output power of OUTPUT A is added to that of OUTPUT
B, i.e. OUTPUT B delivers twice its normal output power.
Use this LED display to control the output level of the main
signal. The upper LIM LED illuminates when the internal
amp protection circuit responds to levels that are too high.
In BRIDGE mode, always connect only
loudspeaker with an impedance of at least 8
the OUTPUT B jack! Please note that OUTPUT A
NEVER be used in BRIDGE mode!

turned fully counter-clockwise.
PMP1000: The FX TO MAIN control performs the same
function as on the PMP3000 and PMP5000.
Pressing the AFL switch (after-fader listening) activates
the solo function. If AFL is on for the corresponding channel
in the main section, you will only hear the signal from this
channel. Its volume can be adjusted with the fader.
Switching AFL on has no effect on the main or monitor mix,
as long as you don’t move the fader. In this way, you can
monitor one or several selected signals via the PHONES/
CTRL jack
. When AFL is on, the corresponding control
LED illuminates.
The PMP1000 does not have an AFL function.
PMP1000: FX SEND fader.
PMP3000: FX fader.

The PMP Series comes with a POWER AMP INSERT
connection that is provided for various applications. This
connection enables you to use the power amplifier of the
device to amplify the output signal of another preamp. For
example, it is possible to connect a larger mixer or preamp
output (line signal) of an instrument amplifier. In this case,
you only need an unbalanced, mono jack cable.
Furthermore, it is possible to use the POWER AMP INSERT
as a conventional insert to add a compressor or graphic
equalizer to the signal path, for instance. Here, a balanced,
stereo jack cable is required and the assignment of tip and
ring needs to be observed according to Figure 4.5 (see
Chapter 4.2 “Audio Connections”). In this case, the ring is
the so-called Send, which is connected to the input of the
additional device, and the tip is referred to as Return, which
is connected to the output of the additional device.
Lastly, it is possible to tap the output signal of the device’s
mixer section from the POWER AMP INSERT in order to use
a second, external power amp. A balanced, stereo jack
cable is required with the ring (not the tip) connected to the
input of the external power amp. If you want to use the
internal and external power amps at the same time, just
wire the connector’s ring and tip together.
The FOOTSWITCH jack is for a standard footswitch. You
can activate an “effect bypass”, thereby muting the effects
processor. Use a dual foot switch for the PMP5000, so
that you can enable/disable FX1 and FX2 independently of
each other. In this case, the tip of the 1/4" plug controls
FX1, and the ring FX2.
PMP3000/PMP5000: The MONO OUT is for connecting a
subwoofer. The PMP5000 has the additional possibility of
setting the low-frequency range for the subwoofer.
Use the SUB FILTER control
8
to adjust the frequency.
For the FX signals, use a 1/4" stereo plug connected
as follows: FX1 = tip; FX2 = ring
The PHONS/CTRL connector allows you to connect a
pair of stereo headphones or an (active) monitor speaker.
If the CD/TAPE OUT signal is connected to a
recording machine whose output signal is returned
to the CD/TAPE IN, feedback can occur when you
activate the record function on the recording
machine. So, disconnect the CD/TAPE IN from the
recording machine before you start recording or
set the CD/TAPE input signal to zero!
Connect your monitor power amps or active monitor
speakers to the MON 1/2 SEND to monitor the signal mix
created with the MON controls or to route it to the musicians
on stage.
Please note: The SEND signal is in parallel with the
FX SEND jacks and with the effects processor, so
that both can be controlled together by one control.
Please note: The POWER switch does not fully
disconnect the unit from the mains. Unplug the
power cord completely when the unit is not used
for prolonged periods of time.
SERIAL NUMBER.
This is where you find the cooling fan of the unit.
The PMP5000 has two cooling fans.
OUTPUT A (LEFT) provides either the left stereo main
signal or the monitor signal in mono, depending on the
operating mode selected (see
). NEVER use this output
in bridged mono mode.
OUTPUT B (RIGHT/BRIDGE) provides either the right
stereo main signal, the main mix signal (mono) or the bridged
mono signal, depending on the operating mode selected.
In BRIDGE mode always connect only one
loudspeaker with an impedance of at least 8 Ω to
the OUTPUT B jack! NEVER use OUTPUT A in BRIDGE
mode!
In all other operating modes the impedance of the
connected loudspeaker must not fall below 4 Ω .
3 DIGITAL EFFECTS PROCESSOR
24-BIT MULTI-EFFECTS PROCESSOR
This built-in effects module produces high-grade standard
effects such as reverb, chorus, flanger, delay and various
combination effects. The integrated effects module has the
advantage of requiring no wiring. This way, the danger of creating
ground loops or uneven signal levels is eliminated at the outset,
completely simplifying the handling. These effect presets are
designed to be added to dry signals.
Turn down the FX controls in those channel strips
whose signals you don’t wish to process.

4 INSTALLATION
4.1 Mains connection
The mains connection is made using the enclosed power cord
and a standard IEC receptacle. It meets all of the international
safety certification requirements.
Blown fuses must be replaced by fuses of the same type and
rating.
Please make sure that all units have a proper
ground connection. For your own safety, never
remove or disable the ground conductor from the
unit or of the AC power cord.
Fig. 4.3: XLR connectors
4.2 Audio connections
The inputs and outputs of your BEHRINGER EUROPOWER are
unbalanced 1/4" mono jacks—except for the mono channel line
inputs, which are balanced 1/4" stereo jacks. Of course, all
inputs and outputs work with both balanced and unbalanced
connectors. The tape in and outputs are on RCA connectors.
Please ensure that only qualified personnel install
and operate the PMP. During installation and
operation, the user must have sufficient electrical
contact to earth. Electrostatic charges might affect
the operation of the unit.

4.3 Loudspeaker connections
Your power mixer is equipped with high-quality loudspeaker
connectors (compatible to Neutrik® Speakon®), which ensure
safe and trouble-free operation. The Speakon® connector was
especially developed for high-power loudspeakers. Once it is
plugged in, it safely locks into position and cannot be accidentally
disengaged. It prevents the occurrence of electrical shock and
ensures the correct polarity. Each of the loudspeaker jacks
carries only the assigned single signal (see the information given
on the rear panel of the power mixer).
Fig. 4.7: Speakon® pin assignment
Fig. 4.6: Professional speaker connector with polarity
allocation
Please be sure to only use commercial Speakon® cables (type
NL4FC) for connecting your loudspeakers to the power mixer.
Please check the pin assignment of your loudspeakers and
cables dependent on the PMP speaker output you choose.
