Overview: The Behringer PPA2000BT is a compact, 8-channel, 2000 watt,
portable PA system suited for schools, corporate and educational presentations,
small to medium venue performances, weddings and tour guides. Designed as an
all-in-one system with "suitcase" style portability, it features a powered mixer
along with 2 speakers that snap together for easy transport. The 8-channel mixer
section is comprised of 4 mono and 2 stereo channels, but also includes a stereo
auxiliary input and Bluetooth connectivity for music playback. Along with 2
bands of EQ per channel, there's a 7-band Master EQ featuring Behringer's
proprietary Feedback Detection system, a high-quality Klark Teknik FX processor
with 100 presets, +48V phantom power on the 4 mono channels, a Sub Out for
running an optional powered subwoofer (sold separately), and 1000 watts of power
available for each of the two detachable speakers.
Mixer: Channels 1 - 4 are mono and include both XLR and 1/4" TRS jacks
(both balanced). These utilize Behringer's proprietary IMP ("Invisible Mic
Preamps) which are know for their transparency and headroom. Channels 5/6 and
7/8 are configured as stereo inputs with dual 1/4" TS (unbalanced) and dual RCA
jacks. Each channel has its own Bass, Treble, Pan/Balance, FX amount, and Level
controls. Channels 1 - 4 Levels also include a Clip indicator that lights if the
signal gets over-driven. The FX knobs will control the amount of effect,
selected in the Effects section, that will be applied to that channel. Each of
the mono channels (1-4) have a Pad button that, when pushed in, applies 20 dB of
attenuation when running "hot" signals into the mixer. A Phantom power button
can apply +48V to each of the XLR jacks on inputs 1 - 4. Other connections
- Recording Out: A set of stereo RCAs are provided to output the
main signal to an external recorder or another mixer.
- FX Footswitch: A 1/4" TS footswitch jack lets you cycle through
the different FX in the FX section with an appropriate footswitch (sold
- Sub Out: This is a 1/4" TS jack that outputs a mono version of
the main signal, for running to an optional subwoofer (sold separately).
- Stereo Aux In: This section has an 1/8" stereo jack along with
Left (mono)/Right 1/4" TS inputs for running an external music source
through the mixer.
Chassis: Housed in tough molded-plastic enclosures, both the powered
mixer and the speakers are designed for portability and durability. Each speaker
contains a 10" woofer and a 1.35" aluminum-diaphragm compression driver and is
designed to snap together with the mixer for transport. A pair of wheels are
attached to the bottom of the powered mixer to make portability easier.
Equalizer: The PPA2000BT features a 7-band EQ that gets applied to the
Main output signal. Bands include: 63, 160, 400, 1k, 2.5k, 6.3k, and 16k with
+/- 12 dB of adjustment for each band. The EQ section also incorporates
Behringer's FBQ (Feedback Detection) circuitry. If feedback is detected in a
specific frequency range, the LED on the associated EQ fader illuminates,
showing you which fader to lower to overcome the feedback.
Multi-FX: A studio-grade effects processor is included in the
PPA2000BT, with 100 presets that include Reverb, Delay, Chorus, Flanger,
Pitch-Shifting, and many more. These effects are custom-engineered by Klark
Teknik, recognized worldwide as one of the most prestigious British audio
companies, and are all 24-bit, professional grade effect algorithms. The Effects
section includes a Program dial to cycle through and select an effect, along
with an FX Level dial which acts as a master FX level for all channels. A
2-character display shows the Effect number and 2 LEDs are provided to show
Signal present and Clipping for the Effects section.
Bluetooth: The PPA2000BT incorporates Bluetooth technology (supports
A2DP 1.2 profiles / spec 3.0 compliant) for music streaming from a Bluetooth
enabled phone, tablet, or laptop. The rear-panel has a Pairing button along with
a Bluetooth status LED that will blink during the pairing process and go solid
once a Bluetooth connection has been established. Bluetooth signals are
processed through input channel 7/8.
Microphone: A Behringer XM1800S wired microphone is included with the
PPA2000BT, along with a 20.5' mic cable. This is a dynamic mic with a cardioid
polar pattern, making it ideal for vocals, and includes a built-in on/off
switch. If an optional wireless mic is preferred, the mixer includes a USB port
that supports Behringer's Ultralink wireless technology, allowing one of their
ULM series wireless mics to be used, such as the
ULM300USB (sold separately). The USB dongle that comes with the wireless mic
plugs into the USB port on the mixer and connects with the mic almost instantly
for an easy wireless setup.
