Just a note regarding connecting: USE BALANCED lines everywhere you can. Use either XLR if available or TRS type cables. This will reduce noise pickup.

Another hint: For SAFETY of your equipment run ANY interconnected devices from the SAME power source. DO NOT say power the amps from one place and your other equipment from a different outlet. Afford a power distribution system that feeds from a single receptacle or nearby receptacles near a common electrical panel. This will ALSO help avoid noise as well as the hazards to your equipment from ground loops.

Your best bet is to request a service manual from Peavey itself. These are usually available for around $20 or so. Call Peavey and ask for the service parts department and make your request there. They are very helpful and should be able to assist you.

One side of the amp has failed and repair is NOT DIY. Take it in for servicing. This amp has many components in the power amp and repair is complicated. A failure can lead to 20 components being damaged. Failure to replace all damaged ones can result in immediate failure destroying the replaced ones.

How do I bias the output tubes?


The adjustment method varies from amp maker to amp maker. if you're unfamiliar with the procedure, you're better off to take it to the shop and get it done right. If you really want to do it your self, VHT has a meter they sell for about $100 online so you can see where you're at and then you adjust the bias trim pot inside your amp to balance them out to where you want them.
But again, you're best off leaving it to a pro.

Setting up pv20 usb


http://www.peavey.com/products/index.cfm/item/699/116338/PV%26nbsp%3B20%26nbsp%3BUSB

Look under "Downloads" tab at bottom for owners manual info. In a nutshell...mic to mixer channel #1, mixer connected to power amplifier, amplifier connected to speakers. Start with zero volumes on all equipment, bring up amps 1st (1/2 volume) and then adjust mixer until sound is heard from the microphone.

Cut out on one occassion & how often does amp need service


Hopefully not often. They are very complicated in design. Keep ALL airflow paths clean and if in a cabinet, give adequate air movement... use a fan if necessary to vent the cabinet. The unit has a string of diodes to adjust the quiescent current in the power amp and if you overheat the unit it will try to protect itself by shutting down.

Do 4-10 devilles need to have the bias adjusted when replacing tubes?


When replacing the two output tubes you should check the voltage at TP26 or either cathode pin of the power output tubes to ground. Set the bias by adjusting pot R82 to 60mv which is 60 ma across the 1 ohm metering resistor. This coresponds to 30 ma per tube. Changing other tubes requires NO adjustment.

How to disassemble Peavey Amp model PV-900 i just need to clean it cause one of the plug (1/4 or xlr) won't works correctly, i need to make a presseure on it to listen sound from one of our...


You will need to remove either the top or bottom panel to get at the jacks. There is probably a bad solder joint that needs to be repaired. You might try tightening the screws on the XLR jacks that fasten them to the back panel first and the nuts that fasten the 1/4"jacks also. I really do not recommend you do this yourself ( accessing the interior) unless you have electronic servicing experience as the filter capacitors in the power supply store a dangerous charge and are soldered to the circuit board in fairly close vicinity to the output stage.

I have 2 peavey 900 Power Amplifiers i would like to link them together was wondering what is the input wattage it can handle?? not wanting to mess anything up!


You CANNOT link the outputs of the amps. They need to drive seperate speakers.

You can tie the inputs together so they will send the same sound to their seperate speakers.

Max power for the Peavey 900 is 900 Watts RMS into a 4 ohm speaker in Bridge mode... That is enough to blow many speakers.
