The PPM™ Series mixers are comprised of three
compact powered mixers, designed for portable live
sound applications. Each powered mixer in the PPM
Series has two graphic equalizers, built-in stereo
digital effects with 16 presets, and two FR Series High-
Current power amplifiers.
Like all Mackie mixers, the PPM Series mixers are
designed for rugged, day-in and day-out road use.
Their sturdy composite-molded case houses rugged,
double-sided SMT-plated fiberglass circuit boards.
Impact-resistant knobs are mounted so they "ride"
just above the steel front panel.
The 808S has six mono mic/line input channels
and two stereo mic/line input channels, with XLR mic
inputs and 1/4" TRS line inputs. All mono channels
have 1/4"TRS insert jacks (tip = send, ring = return).
Each channel strip has one monitor and one internal/
external effects send, plus 3-band EQ, pan control,
and input trim with individual level-set LEDs. A rotary
volume control provides output gain for each channel.
The inputs include Mackie's high-headroom, low-
noise mic preamps. Trim controls provide 40 dB of
microphone gain, 20 dB of line-level gain, and a full 20
dB of attenuation to "pad" hot signals. Each channel
also includes a level-set LED for easy level setting.
Channel EQs are as follows: 12 kHz shelving high-fre-
quency EQ (±15 dB), 2.5 kHz peaking mid-frequency EQ
(±12 dB), and 80 Hz shelving low-frequency EQ (±15 dB).
A global phantom power switch applies +15 Vdc
to pins 2 and 3 of the XLR inputs, and a break switch
mutes channels 1-6 while break music is playing. Left
and right RCA tape inputs are provided with an adja-
cent input level control for connecting a tape deck or
Both the Monitor Master and Main Master rotary
controls have corresponding EFX controls to mix the
effects signal with the monitor and main outputs.
Eight LEDs indicate the output signal level for each
main and monitor output. Outputs include a 1/4" TRS
mixer line output, a 1/4" TRS monitor line output, and
left and right RCA tape line outputs.
