The compression driver of a 2 way peavey SP 5Ti Biamable speaker does not function when the cable is plugged into either "normal" jack(there are 2). The tweeter DOES work when the cable in plugged into the "Hi" jack. Is this due to a faulty crossover or a compression driver failing?

Although it is not fixed, I agree with your diagnosis of a crossover problem. I removed the compression driver from another speaker, and the problem continues. So its not the driver causing the problem. Must be the cross over. Thanks for the help!

This is indicative of a crossover problem. Does the woofer work?

    If you can remove the crossover section, it may be as simple as a blown fuse. Some of these units have a fast blow fuse for both drivers. Otherwise, you probably have a bad cap.

Front speakers won't work simultaneously with the rest of my 5.1 system


This is an either-or situation. As your manual explains, SP-A is one set of speakers and SP-B is another separate set. Your Yamaha receiver should have an SP-A + SP-B setting but given the way your speakers are currently configured it's anybody's guess as to what the result will be.

Receiver shuts off says check sp cable


The reciever is telling you that their is a problem with the speaker cable. I sugges pinpointing which speaker cable it is by turning the system off then unplug all the speaker cables and then plug one in at a time, waiting inbetween allowing enough time for the system to pick up the bad sp cable. Then once you find the correct cable check it from the reciever to the speaker for any signs of breakage, shorts, or damage. Check the speaker connections from wire to speaker and from the wire to the reciever. If all that fails then check the speaker itself, try swaping another one in the position to see if the problem is solved. Hope this works.

My amplifier cuts out and displays the message "check sp cable", what does it mean?


Hi there,

It simply means to check your (sp)eaker cables. It is likely that one of your speaker cables is damaged or not correctly connected. This is causing an overload in the receiver and the cut-out indicates the receiver has gone into 'self-protect' mode, to prevent damage to the internal components.

This could happen if you have cross-wired + and - to one or more of the speakers. It could also be that a cable to one of the speakers has been partially severed and +/- are shorted together or it could be as simple as one of the speaker connections having become detached. Speaker connections are polarised positive + and negative - the same as your household electrics and need to be wired to the correct poles.

To fix this problem, you should initially check all of the speaker connections at both the receiver and speaker ends. Make sure everything is properly connected and that + and - on the receiver are correctly wired to + and - on all speakers. If all of the connections are correct and the error message persists, disconnect each speaker one at a time, reset the receiver and test again.

If you disconnect a particular speaker and the error message no longer appears, you have found the cause of the problem. Examine the cable for any sign of damage and replace the cable. If there is no visible damage, it is still advisable to replace the cable for this speaker as damaged cables are not always visible to the eye.

Please check all of your speakers as above, then let me know if you need further assistance. The message could be erroneous and may indicate a fault with the receiver.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric.

Caused speakers to smoke:(


If it's the speaker cabinet itself that';s smoking, you have most likely burnt some components in the passive crossover. Pull it out and you may see melted parts or scorching on the circuit board. Peavy does repairs on it's own products pretty reasonably if there's no local tech. Call Peavey Customer Srervice at 877-732-8391.

Re: Peavey KB100 75 watt keyboard amplifier. Dear Sir, After having plugged into the 'PRE EQ PATCH' the main 3 inputs/channels are no longer working. I looked in the operating guide and...


The pre-eq patch connector is a 3 -wire connector designed as both an input and output in one connector. With a plug in there that only utilizes the output (send), you are not sending any signal to the amp section. That appears as no output. Take out the cable and the amp should be restored to original function. What you need to use that function is called an "insert" cable. This has a stereo 1/4" plug at the end for the "pre eq patch" side and 2 standard 1/4" plugs at the other end. One is for input into an effects box and the other is for the output from that efects box.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Have a peavey-xr-600b peavey mixer amp. i get aloud hum and noise and cracking when plugging speaker jacks.


Hi chillin884

Not a good sign. Something has gone wrong with the output stages of your Peavey. It is not a good idea to continue plugging it in as damage may occur to your speakers. I suggest you take it to a decent music gear repair guy for a look see and give you a quote to repair These heads, like all Peavey gear, are pretty solid and worth repair. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news like this, good luck

My Peavey Impulse 200 speaker is intermittant. Horn works fine.


There is a switched speakon plug in there (bi-amp socket).
The switch connection can go intermittent. Take the back panel of and solder links from +1 to 1+n, 1- to 1-n, 2+ to 2+n and 2- to 2-n. That often fixes it, but you lose the bi-amp capability (which hardly anyone uses)

I don't know why you'd set the Peavey to 2 ohm to drive 8 ohm speakers??? My other thought is... I wonder if the phase is correct. try reversing one of the speaker wires Left or right side.

My Yamaha HTR-6050 shuts off at random times and says "Check SP Cable"


That is a check the speaker wire error, caused by a short or perceived short. If you look at the back of the receiver you may see 1 strand of the wire loose, they are very hard to see sometimes. You may use banana plugs as it is painful to get everything hooked up without a few loose strands.

If there is still the issue check your speaker connections for the same issue. If they are in ceiling/wall speakers disconnect them all then plug them in one at a time to narrow it down.

If the issue persists perhaps one of your speaker wires has a short somewhere, could be a misplaced drywall screw from hanging a picture, or a carpet tack strip, or a pet deciding it was a nice chew toy.

If you are completely sure it is none of those then I would say it is a bad speaker or receiver. Try changing in and out known good speakers/receivers if you have access to them to see which one it is.

Good luck
