Hi Anonymous, connect passive speakers to a headphone amplifier, it will not work, the headphone amplifier is designed for that, headphones, they are very low power
You should use an amplifier, according to the power that your speakers can handle or use active speakers
I hope you can hear the sound of your TV on your speakers

Hola Anonymous, conectar altavoces pasivos a un amplificador de auriculares, no va a funcionar, el amplificador de auriculares esta pensado para eso, auriculares, son de muy baja potencia
Deberas usar un amplificador, acorde a la potencia que puedan manejar tus altavoces o usar altavoces activos
Espero puedas escuchar en tus bafles el sonido de tu TV

SOURCE: passive radiator speaker wiring

Passive Radiators are not driven by the amp. They have no voice coil and no power goes to them. They are used to enhance the bass or lower frequencies in a speaker system. They work by utilizing the back pressure that a driver (woofer) produces. When a woofer produces sound, it moves forward and backwards inside the speaker cabinet. This backward motion is what drives the passive radiator. So in order for the passive radiator to work, it would have to be placed in speaker cabinet along with a woofer that is hooked up to an audio amp.

SOURCE: i have four active and two passive speakers how

Assuming they are ALL mains and not for monitors connect this way:

Connect the passive to the A and B powered outputs. Please read my tip on Fixya regarding hazard of grounding speaker leads on channel A of PMP mixers.

Connect each pair of active speakers to the Main L and R 1/4 inch jacks using TRS balanced cables. Power these speakers from the SAME receptacle or source, even if it means running an extension cord to your mixer from where the actives are plugged in. FAILURE to do this creates a hazard of ground loops and ground bounce that can damage equipment. The Main L and R 1/4 inch jackls can drive more than one active speaker... these are line level signals. Make sure to use TRS balanced cables for this.

SOURCE: Im trying to hook up two sets of passive speaker,

you should be fine, you can get splitters, little adapters to split the input cables into 2, so that you can use one ouytput to run 2 channels. just hook up the output cables to the output on the numark, and use the splitter adapter to split the sound between the 2 amps.

What do I have to do to hookup a headphone to my 60 in vizio TV?


Without opening set, easiest thing you can do is hook up a small receiver to the audio outputs of tv and then plug your headphones into the headphone output of receiver. And when not using the headphones you can always hook up some external speakers to the receiver - they will always sound better that the speakers that come with the tv.

You connect POWERED speakers to the left and right outputs... You MUST use POWERED speakers or an external amplifier. This unit has a small headphone amp, but that CANNOT power passive speakers.

Bought a powered monitor as it said to do in the owner's manual, even though I thought it was weird as you usually use a passive monitor with a power amp. Purchased Kustom 10" powered monitor, hooked...


You haven't mentioned what model and manufacturer the mixer is. I will have to guess and say that the monitor out on the board isn't providing signal to the powered monitor or the monitor out on your board is powered and is now damaged by plugging a powered monitor into it. Carefully reread your manual and determine if the monitor out on your mixer is powered or line level. Reread also and make sure that the signal you are monitoring is assigned to monitor out, levelled correctly etc. If you find that the monitor out is passive (line level) try hooking it up to an external power amp and speaker. A guitar amp will do for testing purposes. Start with a low input volume on the amp. Also make sure that if it is passive to use a shielded cable from monitor out to input. If your board has powered monitor outs you can use a speaker cable from monitor out to speaker input (non powered monitor speaker).

How do i connect my pv2600amp to my peavey subs and top speakers, i have the leads but what do i do?


Line outs Left and Right from mixer to power amp Left and Right inputs,
Power amp outs to Subs(if they have passive crossovers built in check specs on subs).
From Subs then to Main spkrs. Make sure power amp is set in stereo mode using this way.

Alternative: You will need at least a 2-way stereo crossover unit inline after mixer and before power amps if the subs don't have a built in passive crossover. Most of them do have passive crossovers in the subs these days. Then separate amps or one channel would drive the subs and the other the main speakers. True stereo would require at least a 2 way crossover and two stereo power amps if hooking them up this way.

There is another option as is common with many sub setups. Send the signal to the mains using L/R outputs from mixer and a separate Mono output to the subs only. Putting only bass/kick and low frequency outputs in this send would help too.

Car stereo crossovers


you should be able to remove the passive in-line crossover, but since it is blocking everything below 3500 hz, there is no need. leaving the passive crossover in place will also help protect the tweeters if something fails in your setup as any amped frequency below 3500 can seriously damage them.
