XR 8600 Front monitor output

Post by Tknapp » Fri Sep 22, 2023 6:54 pm

Trying to run an extra monitor to drummer using the front monitor out but getting no signal. I'm using the main/monitor setting because I'm running mains and two.monitors. Any idea why no signal? Thanks

Should be fine if plugged into a powered speaker. Monitor out is line level out, not speaker power out.

When in main/main mode, the two rear jacks are mains L & R. When in main/monitor mode, the two rear jacks are main (mono) and monitor. If you have unpowered monitor speakers, then plug them in to the rear jack for monitor. The front monitor output jack is only for powered monitor speakers, or an external amp driving unpowered monitor speakers.

I have an XR600c. Two questions: the reverb seems to be shot: what should I replace it with?
To use the front monitor output for my two non-powered monitors, I need an amp, right? I’m open to suggestions about what kind of amp (how many watts; we play in smaller venues) and how to hook it up. I assume plug cable from monitor output to line in input on amp, then connect monitors to output. Educate me please: I’m just the drummer!
