Steps

  1. 1
    First of all, we are going to start by plugging in our headphones.
    There are two headphone inputs on the controller. One is 1/4-inch, which is for the bigger DJ-style headphone plugs, and the other is like the one that we use on other consumer electronics, an 1/8-inch port. We have the option of either 1/4 or 1/8 of an inch. In this video, the plug used is the smaller one. It is plugged in.

    We'll start with the speakers that we will be using.
    We'll notice that there are three different speaker outputs. We have "BOOTH OUT" for 1/4-inch jacks as well as RCA "MASTER OUT2" and XLR "MASTER OUT1". In this video, the RCA plugs will be used. They are color-coded. They are red and white. They must correspond with outputs: white for left.

    Next, we'll plug in the power.
    When the unit ships, the power supply may be disassembled. It may have an add-on, depending on in which country we are. We put the add-on into the supply until we hear a click.

    After that, we turn on the speakers or the amplifier.
    It is important that the amplifier or the speakers are always the last things that we turn on because we do not want to get a loud pop that can damage our speakers.

What am I missing from my DJ set and how do I connect my Pioneer DDJ-SB2 to my other equipment?

I bought a Pioneer DDJ-SB2 controller, passive 18in. sub-woofer, 3000w amplifier, AC powered 2-way PA speaker. Also all wires required for connection, how do I connect them all, please help? My situation is a bit more different because I am a beginner DJ, but I have been DJ on virtual DJ for few years, only now, I have had the time and money to get some professional equipment. I just don't know what to connect and to where.
