Dynacord Powermate 1000


Hi guys, I have a question for someone way smarter than me. I have a Dynacord Powermate 1000, which is a 1400 watt powered mixing desk. I want to run it as mixer only, with no speakers connected. I was told this will harm the internal power amp. However i see in the manual that if you insert a pair of jack plugs into the amp inputs (LandR) on the main patch panel, this will in fact interupt the internal signal from the mixer to the amp. So my question is, is this an OK way to do it (and use the main outputs in the patch panel to feed my external power amps in my JBL rig. Any help would be greatly appreciated
