    Hi tonsofpcs,
    Have no idea of the brand name. Bought from ebay as new. Please see attachment for the specification.

    I still can't see any of the labels in the picture. Could you type out what they say?

    Pretty simple, figure out what output you are going to use on the mixer (usually a pre-fader auxilary output) and take the output form the mixer (looks like they are all balanced 1/4" connnections ) to the monitor, it can be a balanced 1/4", and unbalanced 1/4", a 1/4" to a Male XLR, it looks like you've got some options because the monitor has multiple inputs and a few different types of jacks. This looks exactly like an American Audio speaker that my guitar player has.

    Powered Monitor to Mixer

    Try connecting with an XLR(M) to 1/4" microphone cable.
    - Plug the XLR end into the Monitor
    - Plug the 1/4" plug into the Monitor Send jack on the PMP5000

    That should work depending upon how the XLR socket on the speaker is wired. Because the Monitor is unbranded without any technical info (apart from the specs) you will just have to try it and see.

    Use the XLR socket with the white marker around it and select 'Line In' because you will be feeding the Monitor with line level audio which is way too hot when the switch is in the Mic position.

    Hope this helps
