    Default How would I hook up this PA setup?

    1 Traktor Kontrol S4
    1 Yamaha MSR 250
    1 Behringer B1500d Subwoofer

    Not running two speakers only one. I have an adapter that sends both main outputs through to one XLR cable which i plug into my msr (see diagram below). I've also attached a picture of the backs of each unit! CAN I DO IT? would i run it through the LINK OUT port or?!?!

    PLAN:


    Traktor S4 Out/IN

    YAMAHA MSR250 OUTS/INS

    BEHRINGER B1500d Outputs/Inputs

    From S2 1/4 inch to XLR into the sub
    XLR to XLR from the sub out into the MSR

    Think this is right anyway

    "I have an adapter that sends both main outputs through to one XLR cable which i plug into my speaker"

    be careful using those stereo to mono plug adapters.

    Sometimes they make the audio sound strange and/or blow your amps.

    I would hook it up single channel as mentioned above and see if you can get Traktor sound settings to output a mono signal.

    There is a reason why the PROS use these: http://www.amazon.com/Switchcraft-Au...3VQEWRD71T97GF

    Totally agree with that, you can phase the bass out by sending left and right to one speaker or send more voltage than your input can handle.

    Good article by Rane here > http://www.rane.com/note109.html
