Video Transcript

"Behringer's new Powerplay 16 is an incredible, very affordable on stage monitor mix system. It's very similar to the Aviom-type system that you're already familiar with, but at a much lower price point. The Powerplay 16 uses ethernet to take the connections from the mixing console, you take individual channels from the mixing console using the P16-I. So let's start there.

The P16-I input box , as you can see, has 16 TRS (tip,ring,sleeve) type inputs. You come again, directly off the direct outs and they're multiple umbilical cables, 16-channel umbilical cables, that make that a really easy connection. What, once that's in, it converts it to digital. So the signal is converted to digital and outputted on an ethernet cable or Cat5 cable. The Cat5 cable is then what runs to each individual mixer. You can run multiples. You can daisy-chain. So I can have 4 or 5 mixers or 6 mixers running off of here with these 16 channels. Well where do they run to? They run to the on stage personal monitor mixer. Personal monitor mixer takes the Cat5 input, and you can see there's a through so you can daisy-chain to another one. But only those 16 channels that are on the ethernet. And then they present themselves here. So I can select 1, 2, 3, 4 up through the 16 channels. Once I select the channel, I can adjust the level and I can adjust the pan in my stereo image on my headphone out. So we've plugged it back in and we've got the bass control and the treble control. So there's tone control to adjust the tone to fit your monitors, and the mid-frequency control which has a sweet-mid. So I can adjust where on the mid frequency that control works, You've got a limiter on the output to help limit the output, uh, so you don't over drive your headphones, and a volume control.

Now the sweet part of this system is is that you can put together for about $1,600 a complete 4-channel system, because each of these is $200 and you've got $250 for the input. So, $1,000 for 4 of them, another $250 and you've got some money for cables and tax. So, out the door, 4 channelse, complete and ready to go for under $1,600. An incredible value from Behringer, the Powerplay 16."
