    When using a PM 351 and running vocal mic and instrument into the unit... I know the vocal mic is through, but is the instrument? What i mean is, when you raise the level of your instrument feed in the 351, does it raise your FOH level too?

    Let me re-phrase that... when you turn up your bass in the mix on your PM351, does it effect your front of house volume?

    Also- do you use the headphone out jacks to go into your IEM unit? I want to go from the PM351 into my Carvin IEM system.

    short answer: Yes.

    from the manual:
    • The INSTRUMENT OUTPUTs are transformer isolated and convert the high impedance INSTRUMENT INPUT signal to low impedance so it can be sent down a balanced line. These signals may then be plugged into an XLR input on a mixer or snake. Note that the level of this signal may be too high for a mixer's microphone input - you may experience distortion. In this event, turn down the instrument connected to the PM351 INSTRUMENT INPUT, pad the input to the mixer's mic input, or trim down the mic input.
