The solution is pretty easy. The problem is that your mixer is not powered - it has to
be amplified before it goes into the speakers. Here's what to do:
1. Connect your stereo directly to you speakers.
2. Connect the left and right outputs from your mixer to one of the inputs in the back of your
stereo - aux, ld, phono, tape, etc. You'll need to buy two adapters from Radio Shack - phono femal to 1/4" mono male.
3. Plug your bass directly into the mixer, but keep the fader level low.
4. Plug your tape or CD player into the mixer. Your best bet is to buy two more of the above adapters and plug into
the 1/4" input of the mixer - it's much louder; just keep the fader level low so it doesn't distort.
That should do it. This way you can play along with tapes and CD's. Let me know how it works out.
