according to their function. The illustrations at the beginning of each chapter
show the controls described in each respective chapter.
0 The block diagram supplied with the mixing console gives you an
overview of the connections between the inputs and outputs, as well
as the associated switches and controls.
For the moment, just try and trace the signal path from the microphone input
to the FX send connector. Don't be put off by the huge range of possibilities;
it's easier than you think! If you look at the overview of the controls at the same
time, you'll be able to quickly familiarize yourself with your mixing console and
you'll soon be making the most of all its many possibilities.
If you need to know more about specific issues, please visit our website at
http://behringer.com, where you'll find explanations of (for example) effects and
dynamics applications.
1.3 Before you get started
1.3.1 S h i p m e n t
Your mixing console was carefully packed in the factory to guarantee safe transport.
Nevertheless, we recommend that you carefully examine the packaging and its
contents for any signs of physical damage, which may have occurred during transit.
0 If the unit is damaged, please do NOT return it to us, but notify your

2. Control Elements and Connectors
LOW cur
This chapter describes the various control elements of your mixing console.
All controls, switches and connectors will be discussed in detail.
In addition, the mono channels (1002 and 1202) are equipped with a steep
LOW CUT filter (slope at 18 dB/oct., -3 dB at 75 Hz) designedto eliminate
unwanted low-frequencysignal components.
2.1 Mono channels
2.1.3 FX sends, panorama and level adjustment
2.1.1 Microphone and line inputs
FX (802/1002/1202 only)
MIC
FX sends (or AUX sends) enable you to feed signals via
a variable control from one or more channels and sum
these signals to a bus. The bus appears at the console's
FX send output and can be fed from there to an external
effects device. The return from the effects unit is
then brought back into the console on the aux return
connectors (802) or normal channel inputs. Each X send
is mono and features up to +15 dB gain.
Each mono input channel offers a balanced
microphone input via the XLR connector and also
features switchable +48 V phantom power supply for
condenser microphones. The XENYX preamps provide
undistorted and noise-free gain as is typically known
only from costly outboard preamps.
0 Please mute your playbacksystem before
you activate the phantom power supply to
prevent switch-on thumps being directed
to your loudspeakers. Please also note the
instructions in chapter 2.3.5 "Phantom power
and LED displays".
F1g.2.1: Connectors and
controls of miciline inputs
Each mono input also features a balanced line input on a '/4" connector.
Unbalanced devices (mono jacks) can also be connected to these inputs.
0 Please remember that you can only use either the microphone
or the line input of a channel at any one time. You can never use
both simultaneously!
GAlN
Use the GAlN control to adjust the input gain. This control should always be
turned fully counterclockwisewhenever you connect or disconnect a signal
source to one of the inputs.

As the name suggests, the FX sends of the XENYX mixing 1 _ - - - -1
consoles are intended to drive effects devices (reverb,
Fig. 2.3: The FXsendI
delay, etc) and are therefore configured post-fader.
panoramailevel controls
This means that the mix between dry signal and effect
remains at the level determined by .the channel's
aux send, irrespective of the channel fader setting. If this were not the case,
the effects signal of the channel would remain audible even when the fader is
lowered to zero.
L
LlNE IN
- -
PAN
The PAN control determines the position of the channel signal within the stereo
image. This control features a constant-power characteristic, which means the
signal is always maintained at a constant level, irrespective of position in the
stereo panorama.
LEVEL
The LEVEL control determines the level of the channel signal in the main mix.
CLIP
2.1.2 Equalizer
The CLIP LED'Sof the mono channels illuminate when the input signal is driven
too high, which could cause distortion. If this happens, use the GAlN control to
reduce the preamp level until the LED does not light anymore.
All mono input channels include a 3-band equalizer,
except for the 502, which is equipped with a 2-band
EQ. All bands provide boost or cut of up to 15 dB.
In the central position, the equalizer is inactive.
The circuitry of the British EQs is based on the
technology used in the best-known top-of-the-line
consoles and providing a warm sound without any
unwanted side effects. The result are extremely
musical equalizers which, unlike simple equalizers,
cause no side effects such as phase shifting or
bandwidth limitation, even with extreme gain
settings of k15 dB.

2.2 Stereo channels
2.2.1 Stereo line inputs
LlNE IN
Fig.2.2:The equalizer ofthe
monoinput channels
The upper (HI) and the lower band (LO) are shelving filters that increase or
decrease all frequencies above or below their cut-off frequency. The cut-off
frequencies of the upper and lower band are 12 kHz and 80 Hz respectively.
The mid band (802/1002/1202) is configured as a peak filter with a center
frequency of 2.5 kHz.
Each stereo channel has two balanced line level inputs
on l/4" jacks for left and right channels. If only the jack
marked "L" (left) is used, the channel operates in mono.
The stereo channels are designed to handle typical line
level signals.
Both inputs will also accept unbalanced jacks.

2.2.2 Equalizer stereo channels (802)
FX SEND
The XENYX 802 features a stereo 3-band EQ in
each stereo channel. The filter characteristics and
cut-off frequencies are the same as those in the
mono channels.
'The FX SEND output (does not apply for 502) should be connected to the input
of an external effects unit. The post-fader FX signal you created using the
input channel FX controls is sent to the effects unit via the FX SEND ouput.
Use the FX SEND control of the main section to adjust the overall send level
(1002 and 1202 only).
A stereo EQis highly preferable to two mono
equalizers. when working on a stereo signal,
as two separate EQs' will usually produce an
unwanted discrepancy between the left and
riaht channels.
2.3.2 Monitor and main mix
Fig. 2.5: The equalizer of the
stereo input channels
2.2.3 FX sends, balance and level adjustment
The FXsends of the stereo channels function similar
to those of the mono channels. However, since the
FX send buses are both mono, a mono sum is first
taken from the stereo input before it is sent to the
FX bus. The 502 is not equipped with FXsends.
PHONESICONTROL ROOM
The stereo PHONESjack (at the top of the connector panel) is where you connect
headphones. The unbalanced CTRL ROOM OUT jacks carry the summed effects
and main mixsignals, as well as soloed channel signals. The PHONESiCONTROL
ROOM control adjusts the level of both headphones and main monitor outputs.
The 502 is not equipped with control room outputs.
BAL
The BAL(ANCE) control determines the levels of left
and right input signals relative to each other before
both signals are then routed to the main stereo mix
bus. If a channel is operated in mono via the left
line input, this control has the same function as the
PAN control used in the mono channels.

MAlN MIX
The LEVEL control determines the volume of the chalweibeiq sent to the

The MAlbCOUT connectors are unbalanced mowjacks. The main mix signal
appears here at a level of 0 dBu. The MAIN MIX fader adjusts the volume of these
outputs. The XENYX 802 and 502 mixing consoles feature a rotary control for
this purpose.
The stereo inputs of the XENYX 1002 and 1202 have an input sensitivity switch
which selects between +4 dBu and -10 dBV. At -10 dBV (home-recording
level), the input is more sensitive (requires less level to drive it) than at +4 dBu
(studio level).

MIDI instruments or other signal sources that do not
require any processing.
CDITAPE T O CTRL R O O M
(502: C D I T A P E T O P H O N E S )
The high-precision 4-segment display accurately displays the relevant
signal level.
LEVEL SETTING: To correctly set the gains of the channels, first set the LEVEL
controls of the input channels to their center positions(0dB). Then use the GAIN
controls to increasethe input amplification until signal peaks show 0 dB on the
level meter.
When recording to digital recorders, the recorder's peak meter should not go into
overload. While analog recorders can be overloadedto some extent, creating only
a certain amount of distortion (which is common and often desirable),
digital recorders distort quickly when overloaded. In addition, digital distortion is
not only undesirable, but also renders your recording completely useless.
C D I T A P E T O MIX
0 The peak meters of your XENYX display the level virtually independent
of frequency. A recording level of 0 dB is recommendedfor all
signal types.

Press the CDITAPE TO CTRL ROOMIPHONES switch
if you want to monitor the 2-track input via the CTRL ROOM OUT. This provides
an easy way to monitor signals coming back from tape to ensure that they are
recording correctly.
0 If you are recording a signal via the CDITAPE OUTPUT and wish to
listen to this simultaneously via the CDITAPE INPUT, do not use the
CDITAPE TO MIX switch. Doing this would create a feedback loop,
since the signal would be routed, via the main mix, back to tape
via the CDITAPE OUTPUT. To monitor the CDITAPE INPUT, use the
CDITAPE TO CTRL ROOM switch to assign the tape signal to the
monitor(s) or headphones. This will avoid the tape signal being routed
to the CDITAPE OUTPUT.

3. Installation
3.1 Mains connection
A C P O W E R IN
Connect the power supply to the 3-pin mains connector on the rear of the
console. Use the AC adapter supplied to connect the console to the mains.
The adapter complies with all applicable safety standards.
0 Please use only the power supply unit provided with the console.
0 Never connect the XENYX to the power supply unit while the latter is
connected to the mains! First connect the console t o the power supply
unit, then connect the power supply unit to the mains.
0 Please note that both the power supply unit and the mixing console
If you want to monitor only the FX send signal in your headphones or monitor
speaker(s), press the FX TO CTRL switch. This mutes the main mix signal while
routing the FX SEND output to the monitor(s). The XENYX 802 and 502 do not
feature this switch.

3.2 Audio connections
You will need a large number of cablesfor different applications.
The illustrations below show how the connectorsshould be wired. Be sure to
use only high-grade cables.
Please use commercial RCA cables to connect the 2-track inputs and outputs.
You can, of course, also connect unbalanceddevices to the balanced inputs1
outputs. To do this, use either mono plugs or stereo plugs with the ring and
sleeve bridged (pins 1 and 3 in the case of XLR connectors).
0 Caution! Never use unbalanced XLR connectors (PIN 1 and 3 connected)
on the MIC input connectors when using the phantom power supply.
