PLEASE IGNORE SIMILAR POST ON THIS AS I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO EDIT AND SAVE THE EDITED POST. VERY SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POSTING!


I just joined a band. The other day we were setting up to host a jam session and a member of the band was saying that we didn't need a separate power amp for the stage monitors, as he was going to feed the one Main Power Amp
we had INTO the input of the Gemini 12 channel "non-powered" mixer we use; therefore, the mixer now becomes a "powered mixer", and we could now run from the monitor output to the stage monitors and run from the main outputs to the main speakers and that would do the trick.

I have never hooked up mixers this way.
Is this something new I am unaware of?

Or is this just an unconventional way of powering stage monitors w/o the need of an extra monitor amp?

Also, what about impedance problems from four or more speakers still being sourced from one amp?

Are the electronics, circuitry, and other internals of the mixer designed to take an input from a power amp?

How does this effect the "pre-amp" components of the mixer?
