    Great powered mixer

    Plenty of channels and power, good onboard effects and a lot for your money. As it's 1600w it does need a lot of power so make sure if you are using an extension cord it's not over 25' and is a heavy gauge. Running this mixer on a long/thin power extension cord will cause the mixer to cut out. I run this mixer for a small 4 piece acoustic band and it is very portable and we often get complimented on the sound, using 2 wedge/monitor 12"/horn speakers for mains and a 1000w powered speaker for a monitor (the monitor output is line level and is not powered).

    Excellent, versatile, powerful mixer.

    My wife and I bought this powered mixer for our acoustic duo. We play everything from a double bass up to a mandolin and a ukulele and we both do vocals, so we needed the channels. Our gigs range from small coffee shops to gymnasiums and outdoor park/field concerts so we also needed something that would sound great at low volume or high volume. We also needed something that we could buy on a limited budget. I have had a great experience with an older Behringer electric guitar amp so we decided to try out this powered mixer of theirs. One year and about 30 gigs later we are still very much in love with this mixer. We usually run it with two Behringer passive 15" cabinets for mains and with a B212D as a powered monitor. The built effects sound great, we can match the mains sound with our monitor, it is a light unit and easy to transport and set up, I can run it from the stage during performance, it NEVER gets hot, our recordings out of the unit sound great, our vocals sound great - I could go on and on. Even our sound engineer loves it when he comes along. We are thankful to Behringer for making such a high quality unit for such a great price!

    Something for nothing

    I was looking for something small and powerful... Wow ! Very nice, clean, with all kinds of good features.
    I have just started working with the mixer and it seems very easy to use. Plug it in and go !
    The other things I like are the output options along with the separate RCA jack left and right input for your external devices.

    Excellent Piece Of Equipment

    I recently purchased this model (PMP1680S) a short time ago & have used it at rehearsals and one gig so far. It has plenty of crystal-clear power. Two drawbacks: the unit has Speakon outputs only! The salesman with ZSounds assured me they were 1/4" and the front of the unit has a slightly convex contour that made it unable to fit in a standard SKB rackbox! Those are my two complaints. I purchased Speakon-to-1/4" cables (50') & Speakon-to-1/4" female adaptors.

    great practice or small band solution

    I'm really happy with the PMP1680S so far. It has a lot of power, it's very light weight. and it sounds good. I bought this for an acoustic duo project. Run two vocal mics and an acoustic guitar straight into it. It's a quick setup. The two different effects are what I really wanted because I like to run a little bit of chorus on the acoustic and use a little reverb on vocals. Worked out great having the two separate effects.

    Would've given 5 stars but wish the unit had combination speakon/ 1/4" outputs, but I only use speakon anyway. Would be nice to have the option of using 1/4". Also, typical China craftmanship...when I opened the box a screw from the front had fallen out. No biggy, I put it back in and went around to every other screw in the unit and tightened them all up (they were all a bit loose). Haven't had any issues with it so far. I recommend

    Blessed with Behringer

    Man this is a dream come true. I've owned the PMP 1600 series power mixer amps before. They are good mixers for the money. Pair them up with JBlL spearkers and you got a winner. I can't wait to get my hands on the new 1680 seriers. Has more power than my oriangal mixer. This mixer gives you plenty of I/o's. And plenty of juice to fill any room. There's also plenty of upgrade ops as well for any live or studio. Again great little mixer for the money.

    I didn't know it needed those different speaker cords, it does have a hum, I have to sheck to see if it comes out the speakers, and I just got the cords. Thanks Debso, not sure yet

    1600 watts is no different than 800 watts

    My first Behringer PA was the PMP 2000. It had 800 watts. It was getting old and I was having to turn it up higher to get the same volume level, so I bought the newer model the PMP 16805 which is rated at 1600 watts. I can't tell any difference in the power. Twice I have been playing to about 250 people, master volume up about 1/3 and it cuts out making a terrible noise like the thing is going to blow up. I have to shut it off, while the audience boos, and wait for 10 seconds while it cools down I guess. It really sucks. I do like having 2 effects modules, and it is lighter.
