Hello,
I have a little problem. My mixer has two 1/4" outputs while my PA has an XLR input. What's the solution?
Thanks

If you're sure the outputs on the mixer are the right ones to be sent to the speakers, then you simply get a pair of male 1/4" jack to male XLR cables.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I'm not sure I follow what you are asking. When you say your "PA" do mean active speakers or are you sending a personal mix from your own mixer to another main mixer?
If your mixer only has high impedance outputs (1/4 inch phone) and need to go to low impedance inputs on something else (active speakers, another mixer or power amp) one solution is a high to low impedance adapter like the one at this link. Remember that you also need low impedence (microphone) cables.

The main outputs, left and right, of my mixer are 1/4" jacks. The input of my active monitors is an XLR for each speaker.

You'll need a cable that has a quarter inch on one end and an XLR on the other. You might check to see if the mixer is designed to handle TRS 1/4" connectors...
