The “Mono” Input Channels (1-4):
1. PEAK/SIGNAL LED: This LED will illuminate green when a
signal is present at the High or Low Z inputs. When the signal nears clipping, the LED will illuminate red. (See Gain
control, #8.)
1
2
2. HIGH: Use this control to adjust the high frequency level for
the channel. This control allows for 15dB of cut or boost at
12kHz.
3
3. MID: Use this control to adjust the midrange frequency level
for the channel. This control allows for 15dB of cut or boost
at 2.5kHz.
4
4. LOW: Use this control to adjust the low frequency level for
the channel. This control allows for 15dB of cut or boost at
80Hz.
5
5. MON: Use this control to set the amount of the channel’s signal sent to the monitors.
6
6. EFFECT: Use this control to set the amount of internal DSP
effect (or external effects, if used) to be applied to the channel.
7
7. LEVEL: Use this control to set the channel’s output signal
level.
8
8. GAIN: Use this control to set the input signal level for the
channel. Adjust this control so the peak/signal LED (#1)
flashes red on strong signal peaks.
9
10
11
4
9. PAD: Use this switch to accommodate “hot” input signals.
(Signals too strong to allow a useful setting of the gain control without causing the peak/signal LED to glow red.)
Depress this switch to engage the 20dB pad, thereby reducing the input signal’s level to a more useable range.
10. HIGH Z INPUT: The signal output from a high impedance
microphone or a line level signal (such as an instrument,
rhythm machine, tape deck, etc.) may be connected here by
means of a shielded cable terminated with a male 1/4” plug.
Tip = “+,” ring = “–,” and sleeve = shield.
11. LOW Z INPUT: The signal output from a low impedance
microphone or a low impedance line level signal (such as a
line out signal from an instrument amplifier) may be connected here by means of a shielded cable terminated with a
male XLR plug. Pin 2 = “+,” pin 3 = “–,” and pin 1 = shield.
PX700DLX/PX900DLX Powered Mixer
The “Stereo” Input Channels (5-7/5-9):
12. PEAK/SIGNAL LED: This LED will illuminate green
when a signal is present at the High or Low Z inputs.
When the signal nears clipping, the LED will illuminate red. (See Gain control, #19.)
12
13
13. HIGH: Use this control to adjust the high frequency
level for the channel. This control allows for 15dB of
cut or boost at 12kHz.
14
14. MID: Use this control to adjust the midrange frequency level for the channel. This control allows for
15dB of cut or boost at 2.5kHz.
15
15. LOW: Use this control to adjust the low frequency
level for the channel. This control allows for 15dB of
cut or boost at 80Hz.
16
16. MON: Use this control to set the amount of the channel’s signal sent to the monitors.
17
17. EFFECT: Use this control to set the amount of internal DSP effect (or external effects, if used) to be
applied to the channel.
18
18. LEVEL: Use this control to set the channel’s output
signal level.
19
19. GAIN: Use this control to set the input signal level for
the channel. Adjust this control so the peak/signal
LED (#12) flashes red on strong signal peaks.
20
21
20. LINE 1/LINE 2 INPUTS: The signal output from a
stereo source (such as a stereo instrument, rhythm
machine, tape deck, etc.) may be connected here by
means of a pair of shielded cables, each terminated
with a male 1/4” plug. Tip = “+,” ring = “–,” and sleeve
= shield. The left and right signals are summed internally to become a mono signal – without the need for
external summing devices or adapter cables.
21. MIC INPUT: The signal output from a low impedance
microphone or a low impedance line level signal
(such as a line out signal from an instrument amplifier) may be connected here by means of a shielded
cable terminated with a male XLR plug. Pin 2 = “+,”
pin 3 = “–,” and pin 1 = shield.

22,27. GRAPHIC EQ’S: These seven band graphic equalizers allow
customization and shaping of the output signals to match room
acoustics and enhance the sound. Use the selector switch (#25)
to determine where the equalization will be applied: either to the
main and monitor output signals, or to the main 1 and main 2 output signals.
23,28. LED METERS/LIMITER INDICATORS: These LED meters
monitor the output signal levels for either the main and monitor
output signals, or the main 1 and main 2 output signals (dependent on the setting of the selector switch, #25). The red LED’s illuminate when the internal limiter is engaged to prevent the signal
from being clipped. (Clipping results in overdrive distortion and
should be avoided.) If the limiter LED’s flash continuously or
remain on constantly during use, reduce the output signal levels
until they flash only on strong signal peaks.
24,29. EFFECTS RETURNS: Use these controls to adjust the magnitude of the effects applied to the output signals. Use the selector switch (#25) to determine where the effects will be applied:
either to the main and monitor output signals, or to the main 1 and
main 2 output signals.
6
25. MAIN/MONITOR / MAIN1/MAIN 2: Use this switch to select
whether the graphic EQ’s, LED meters, and master level controls
are assigned to the Main and Monitor outputs (switch in the out
position) or to the Main 1 and Main 2 outputs (switch depressed.
When this switch is in the out position, the Main/Main 1 graphic
EQ (#27) controls the signal to power amp #1, the output of which
33
35
is connected to the Main Output jack (#44). Also, the
Monitor/Main 2 graphic EQ (#22) controls the signal to power
amp #2, the output of which is connected to the Monitor Output
jack (#43).
When this switch is depressed, the Main/Main 1 graphic EQ
(#27) controls the signal to power amp #1, the output of which is
connected to the Main 1 Speaker Output jacks (#46). Also, the
Monitor/Main 2 graphic EQ (#22) controls the signal to power
amp #2, the output of which is connected to the Main 2 Speaker
Output jacks (#46).
30. EFFECTS SEND: Use this control to set the overall signal level
sent to the internal DSP or external effects (if used).
31. AUX IN: Use this control to set the input signal level of the aux in
jack (#40).
32. TAPE IN: Use this control to set the input signal level of the tape
in jacks (#41).
34. POWER LED: This LED illuminates when the mixer is on.
35. PHANTOM +48V: This switch, when depressed, applies +48
volts DC to pins 2 and 3 of each channel’s XLR input jacks. This
allows use of microphones which require a source of phantom
power for proper operation. (Mics not requiring phantom power
will not be affected by the presence of the DC voltage.) The adjacent LED illuminates when the phantom power is on.

36. DSP SELECTORS: Use these switches to select the type of
digital signal processing effect to be applied – vocal, large hall,
and small hall are reverberation effects; delay is a digital delay
effect.
40. AUX IN: Use this jack as the return jack when using an external effects device, or to feed another mixer’s signal into the
PX700DLX/PX900DLX. This jack is post-input channel, pre-eq,
and pre-power amp.
37. DSP ON: Use this switch to activate the internal digital signal
processor. When this switch is depressed, the selected DSP
effect is activated.
41. TAPE IN: Use these jacks to connect the outputs of a tape deck
or CD player to the mixer. The playback signal level is set by the
tape in level control (#32).
38. EFFECTS SEND: Use this jack to send a signal to an external
effects device. The signal level at this jack is set by the effects
send control (#30).
42. TAPE OUT: Use these jacks to connect the mixer to a tape
recorder. These jacks are is post-eq, pre-master, and their signal level is determined by the channel level controls.
39. FOOTSWITCH: Use this jack to connect a footswitch for
remote on/off control of the DSP and external effects device.
The footswitch must be a normally open, momentary type such
as the Crate model #FSIU. The wiring for the footswitch is as
shown:
