Dynacord PowerMate 600-3 with active speakers

Postby george_vel » Sun May 09, 2021 5:18 pm

Hi everyone!

This is a powered mixer and there are outputs on the rear side for passive speakers.

But how can I connect active speakers to this device?

I do look for a mixer that is able to support both options (passive and active speakers) and want to know is this one capable to do it. From what I read so far, I am not sure how active speakers can be connected to the 600-3... or, is it possible at all?

Here's the manual: https://products.dynacord.com/binary/User%20Manual_Handbuch_PowerMate%20600-3%20(EN-DE).pdf

You can use the MASTER A (41) or MASTER B (43) outputs - as referenced in the manual - to connect powered speakers.

As far as I can tell, you can connect active speakers to the Master A XLR outputs on the top panel.

There's a block diagram that tells you what you need to know at

...faster than a speeding management consultant, the flying fingers of the SOS come to the rescue yet again - in duplicate!

Nice little mixer amp, btw. If you don't have the metal cover for the front panel, get one.

Do yourself a favour, wear earplugs at gigs.
