    Default Firebox -> Analog Mixer -- How to Route?

    this may seem like a very basic question, but i think i'm overthinking this and the solution is right in front of me, but i want to be safe since the gear i'm working with is not mine.

    for a gig tonight i secured a 5 channel analog mixer, amp and speakers, but the question deals with the mixer:

    as a point of reference, this is what the mixer layout looks like (almost identical, minus the fx section):

    my question is where to route the outputs from my firebox? is it the line/inst 1/4'' inputs above each channel? or the aux returns? or should i route them to the cd in? sounds basic but i've never dealt with audio routing in this form before.

    thanks again

    Are you leaving balanced or unbalanced? how many channels of audio?

    If you're exiting balanced with 2 chanels, plug into 9/10 and 11/12 with left and right in obvious spots.
    if you're exiting unbalanced with 2 chanels, plug into 9 and 11 in the L(mono) port.

    from the firebox i'm running 1/4'' TRS stereo connections, so i'm guessing that's balanced (because they're TRS, and stereo)?

    are you trying to set it up so you can mix on that mixer or just have your master line out from the firebox go in that mixer to then go out to amp?

    if it is the later you could go RCA cd in or go into those 1/4 jacks that say line in above 5/6 7/8 9/10 11/12, depends on what cables you have
    We don't believe in the star system. We want the focus to be on the music. If we have to create an image, it must be an artificial image. That combination hides our physicality and also shows our view of the star system. It is not a compromise-daftpunk

    well, sorta. It just depends on how you're configuring everything. Most likely though you're running out stereo.

    So the main outs on the firebox. 1/2 will plug into 9/10 in left and right respectively.

    haha. that was definitely just a "might as well throw it out there" possibility. plus, there's a cd player already hooked up, which i'll use as a backup.
