Basic wiring and PA setup help
Posted 12 December 2012 - 02:01 PM
Here's what I have:
4 JBL JRX 125 Speakers (Mains)
4 Yamaha wedges (monitors)
1 Older Crown 800 Series Amp
2 Newer Crown 802 XLS Amps
Behringer 24 Ch Board
This is where I'm lost. I can easily get 2 of the JBLs running as Mains out of the board and one amp and all of the Yamahas running as monitors out of another. Sounds great and works good but I am missing something how to get the 3rd amp into the mix. I assume I could daisy chan the other 2 JBL's but I'd still not be getting the benefit of the other amp. So basically am I just missing another box in this setup or what? Maybe I am making this harder than it needs to be but I'd appreciate some advice.

Were you just looking for a way to connect everything? If so then splitters are not that good of a solution, try to use cables instead of splitters, in your case Y XLR cables would do the job.
Splitters and adapters overstrain the chassis connectors on the amp, so avoid them as much as you can.
Also I didn't understand why you need the 2 X JRX for? If it's higher SPL you're after then I suggest you sell them both and get better speakers and amp.
Good luck with everything

As far as why I bought what I did, I bought it used, and it's as good as anything I will ever need for the venues I play in. I don't need every single last bit of equipment I own to be top shelf to play in bars. This setup is nicer than 99% of what any other band around here plays with, so I'd just like to be able to use what I have and have it sound good. If you have recommendations I'd be happy to listen but as far as I'm concerned this setup seems to sound great compared to what I've been using.
