Where do i put a headphone amp in PV 8

Hey guys, hope you can help me out here. where do you guys usually put the headphone amp. I had a Peavey PV 8 and wondering where should I put the headphone amp. I use the tape in and out of the mixer to my sound card. Is that ok to?

Thanks in advance

This is where it would be good if you had some “Spare Money”, to get one of those Behringer PowerPlay Pro-XL Headphone Monitor Amps… There are other brand names if you are not supporter of Behringer… There are more expensive ones and less expensive ones… But the PowerPlay Pro-XL works just great…

You are now at the place-in-time where you start spending hard-earned money, to support your habit…

I have several headphone Monitor Amps…


You should be able to use your mixer’s auxiliary line out to the headphone amp. If it does not have an aux output, I believe you can use the mixer’s headphone out. If the headphone amp has a line out, or a ‘through’ output, you could use it between your soundcard and mixer.

Using your tape in\out is definitely okay, and is the way most mixer manuals suggest you do it.

Good luck!

Thanks guys. behringer never failed me so far woxnerw, i love their guitar fx and are my main line now maybe i’ll try them out. wynot so its ok to patch it to the headphones amp of my mixer coz mine dont have a line out well… maybe:D . thanks guys both of you!!!

Dean, I just checked the Peavey site, and it says the PV8 mixer has both main outs and control room outputs, as well as the tape out and the headphone out. You should have no trouble using either the main or the control room out for your headphone amp, leaving the other one to send signal to your loudspeakers.

Again, best of luck to you!

HEY, Dean!!

You need to update the link to your avatar. My webhost got unreliable and let hackers take over so they are now my former webhost. During the move to a new host I had to move a few things around.

(old - no good)

(new - good)

Thanks a lot. so thats why my avatar wont work hehehe. been a long time, how do i do the avatar thing again? :D again thanks to u all

It’s somewhere in the settings in “Your Control Panel”. Look up top of this page right under your login name.

Thanks man!!! Now working :D

Hey guys, I patched the headphone amp at the main outputs and the dilema is the tape to mix must be switched in order to send the signal. it seems the only solution is the headphone out of the mixer itself. thanks for all your suggestions. :D
