You must be a proud Dad. Don't let this issue spoil this important moment for your family.
Thank you for your prompt replies. What you have said enables me review my decision to leave the forum.
My High Regards, Marshall.
I own several used Sony ES, Carver, and Parasound consumer amplifiers and a few pro sound mixers, but I don't have any pro amplifiers! Whenever I connect a mixer's output to any of these consumer amplifiers, (even the amps with independent level controls for left and right channels), I get a significantly distorted sound and the amplifiers run so hot, I'd swear they were going to burst into flames! I need to know how to pad the output of a pro mixer to connect to one of these consumer stereo amplifiers.
I need to use a Behringer 1202FX mixer with 1/4" TRS mains (manual says unbalanced?) with ~120 Ohm impedance and +22 dBu peak output level. Clearly, this overloads the inputs of my consumer amplifiers. How do I pad this level down to use a consumer amp to run sound for a local baseball tournament coming up next week. Can't afford a new pro amp. How can I make the gear I already own work and play well together?
