Awesome, thank you so much man! Another question because I’m pretty new to this piece of sound. If my mixer is 2 ohms and the speakers are 8 ohms, is that an issue?The 1200 watt rating is at 2ohm load and 600 watts split across two channels.
1200 watts @ 2ohms = 600 + 600
900 watts @ 4ohms = 450 + 450
600 watts @ 8ohms = 300 + 300
These are peak power ratings so expect constant to be 50-60% of that.
Assuming your speakers are 8ohms you are getting 300 watts peak of run on each output channel of the pa head.
If you run the pa as one side powering mains and the other monitors, assuming 8ohm speakers all around it will look something like this.
Mains 8ohm + 8ohm in parallel (daisy chained) = 4ohm
Max at 4ohms of 450 watts/ 2 speakers = 225 watts per speaker.
The same holds true for the monitor side.
To answer your question in simple terms though yes, the power would be split amongst your speakers. I.e. 1000 watts/2 speakers = 500 watts per speaker.
No. Your mixer per spec is able to run 2, 4, or 8 ohms.Awesome, thank you so much man! Another question because I’m pretty new to this piece of sound. If my mixer is 2 ohms and the speakers are 8 ohms, is that an issue?
Total amp power using two channels is 900 watts at 4ohms. That’s with both sides of the power amp receiving a 4ohm load. 450 watts per side.a pair of the 8 ohm mackie speakers will appear as 900 watts @ 4ohms = 450 + 450
