Hi, some help please,cant find any info about a powered mixer i recently inherited it's a DYNAMIX PMS 1000 12 channel,i dont know what its power output is rated at,there is nothing printed on the rear panel or any where else,& its looks like zero chance of finding a manual on line, i think it might be from the late 80's,any help would be very appreciated,

Without a manual, your going to have to resort to good old fashion mathematics.
Your going to need a dummy load resistor, a volt meter, and a calculator.
The resistor needs to be either 4 or 8 ohms. And capable of handling 1000 watts. (I know! Not the kind of thing one has laying around!)
But the math is simple. It's V squared, divided by ohm. And run the amp to just about clip, and then back it off just a touch. I think this is about the only way your going to know anything about this amp. Sorry!
