I am using powered monitors with the Mackie and have no amplifier for 2 passive monitors. I do have another mixer that is powered that I would like to use however I need to be able to control the mix through the Mackie. I am not versed at all in this sort of thing and am worried I will destroy something if I hook it up incorrectly. Please advise in plain simple non gear head talk and assist me if you have any idea how to accomplish this.
You can plug the Mackie
tape out into the Phonic
tape in or:
If the impedances and resistances for the passive monitors match, then plug the passive monitors into the powered monitors' extension speaker jacks. Checking the impedances and resistance is very important because if they mismatch you could damage your speakers.
tape out, the Phonic has a
tape inwith its own level knob in the main section. That should be the easiest solution, and bypass any processing (except the main EQ) on the Phonic. Set all other inputs to minimum level to avoid hiss.
