Question about Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

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?

    Yes, the woofer works.

    I've discovered that cleaning the input jacks seems to fix the problem

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.

I have a blown tweeter on my SP3 and I want to replace it but I don't know how to get it out of the enclosure?


There are a number of versions of SP-3, but normally you would remove the screws holding the horn into the cabinet, take out the horn and then unscrew the driver from the horn. At that point, either replace the diaphragm on the driver or the whole driver.

How to take the grill off a peavey sp-5


Most versions are obvious, but the newer version where there are no screws on the grill edge require you to remove the bottom plate on the cabinet by taking off the feet and stand adaptor. Once the bottom is off, you'll see the grill is mounted in a slot. With the cabinet on it's back lift and pull the grill and it will slide up and out of the slot.

I just purchased 2 old Peavey SP-2 and SP-3 speakers. How do I wire from the crossover to the speakers so the horns and 15's are wired in correct.


These cabinets are self contained and you do not use a crossover with them. The speakers do NOT come out to separate connectors. You just drive these with an amplifier. DO PAY ATTENTION to the power rating... you are safe using an amplifier with a MAXIMUM of 150 Watts RMS per speaker cabinet. More than that and running them loud and you will be replacing the speakers. These will cover a 40 foot square room at comfortable level.

Wish to run sm450v2 Mackie powered speakers thru a Peavey XR8600


The Peavey XR8600 is NOT just an amp, but a powered mixer.

To SAFELY use this with your powered speakers, connect those speakers to the MAIN and MONITOR outputs on the front of the unit with 1/4 inch INSTRUMENT rated cables (NOT speaker cables).

To safely leave the power amps in the XR8600 with no output loads, plug GROUNDING plugs into the POWER AMP 1 and 2 input jacks on the front. This will prevent the power amps in the XR8600 from running with no load which COULD damage them.

Make the grounding plugs from 1/4 inch mono plugs by jumpering the centr aand sleeve terminals of the plug.

Peavey Horn Drivers (compression drivers)


Did you sort your problem? I need 2 also, but seems quite easy to get 4ohm but 8 ohm a little harder. The woofer in the cab is 4ohm, cabinet is rated 4ohm so wondering wether to replace th 8ohm horn with a 4ohm diaphram.
Any thoughts?
Thanks.

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
