First post.. Always read the forums but never registered.
I am in serious need of help with my DJ Set Up. Hope someone can assist..
Issue: Adding an Active Subwoofer with 1 working Channel Mixer
Mixer - Numark Mixtrack Pro w/ 1 working RCA Channel 1
Amplifier - 2,000 WATT 2 Channel with RCA
Speakers - Passive Peavey 12"
(The above works fine, no issues)
Added: Peavey 118D 18" Active (Amplified) Subwoofer
When I purchased the Amplified Subwoofer, I explained my set up and was told all I needed was a 1/4" cable (plug into back of Subwoofer, plug into back of Speaker).. Done.
I did this... and everything was working. Although, my speakers sounded quieter than before. No problems...
I told someone about the set up I am now running and was told to IMMEDIATELY disconnect and not to run that way. Was told having an Amplified Subwoofer plugged into a Passive Speaker (which is Amplified by a separate Amplifier) going to 1 Channel on a Mixer... is a recipe for disaster. Something to do with 2 separate amplified pieces being a serious problem...
Back of Subwoofer (notice 1/4" Cable)
Told to just plug into Speaker (pointing to 1/4" space I was told to plug in)
Is anything wrong with this? If so, How can I successfully pull this off? What is needed?
Thank you in advance.. I have a show in a week and need to figure this out. Subwoofer is desperately needed. Thanks!!!!
