    Hi Obegun,

    I guess there are a few ways to set up monitors with this one. Your best bet is to study the manual, really, since it gives you more specific info.

    If you use the aux bus, that is, sending a portion of each channel to the aux bus via the channel strip knob labeled aux, and take the output from the aux out jack, you will need an amp to drive the monitors. You could also use one side of the stereo out main for the main speakers and the other side for the monitors, if the impedences work. The manual will show this.

    My computer is messing up; will get back.

    Hi,

    I am using the same mixer in our church, and yes... you can easily send 2 monitoring channels back to the stage. BUT you need another amplifier OR active monitor speakers.

    In the mixer you use the aux1 and aux2 buttons in each channel that you want to add to the aux1 and/or aux2 mix. And with the aux1, 2 master faders you control the output. In most cases we use aux1 for vocals' monitors, and aux2 for musicians' monitors.

    Good luck, and greetings from Holland
