Question about Peavey CH1 Speaker

1 Answer

Peavey SP5 While playing a Gig last night, both speakers full range quit working at the same time. We tried disconnecting the amp, still nothing but the high end. We tried changing channels, still nothing. We then brought in another speaker and it worked fine. I found out the businesses cash register quit working at the same time our speakers gave out. Do you know if there is a fuse? Something? Thanks, Rhonda

Depends who assembled the speakers as to wheather or not there is any fuse proetection installed.
The drivers are probably gone from the highs because of overloading power surge on the same circuit as the cash register,
or
the crossover is failed.

Cheap fix is replace crossover
expensive fix replace cones of speaker

Best long term protection is to split up the power loading on the stage and surge/spike guard power boards for staging equipment & have resettable fuses installed at the crossobvers or the respective speaker connections.

My amp may have been left on with one speaker unplugged and is now not working. What's the likely diagnosis?


does the speaker still work? use a 9 volt battery and do a test thump to see if the horn and woofer still work...when the power amps on these units fail most of the time they shut down.

Check the crossover network for cracked solder joints, specially pay attention to the female1/4 jacks as they are very tricky since they are switches also, you might be surprised...

Recommend an Ashdown or Fender with a 15" speaker, they will give a good sound, are gig-worthy, and will last. I use a Behringher 120W for rehearsal work, it only has a 12" speaker and thus cannot give a good 'presence', also I have been reliably informed, a lot of custom chips are used in thier amps.
Don't forget, a bass 'E' goes down to something like 60Hz, and a good speaker and amp are a must for bass work

Sp5 peavey stop working it is getting the signal and you can pulg another speaker in the normal port and the other speaker works


The "in" and "out" jacks on the speaker are connected in parallel, so the fact that the other speaker works really doesn't tell us much. If you are not getting any sound at all from either the woofer or the horn, than the internal crossover is probably the defective part. The easiest way to hunt this down is to remove the rear plate that has the connectors on it and try each speaker directly,. Assuming that each speaker works, replace the crossover. Parts should be availabel from, Peavey directly. Call them and speak to the service parts department.

I have one Peavey SP5 that suddenyl lost the Woofer end. Horn still spits out but absolutly NOTHING at all from the Bottom 13". I swapped out fuses adn same problem, I switched outputs on the amp, same...


If you have a pair, swap the woofers. If the other one works in the cabinet, then it's definitely the speaker. If it doesn't, then you've likely got a problem with the crossover inside the unit. I believe you can get a replacement crossover from Peavey. If it's the speaker, google speaker re-coning in your area, as it's cheaper to re-cone the speaker than replace it.

PV 2600, couple years old, light usage. Connected to two PV SP3K speakers. One channel started to cutout somewhat but not all the way, Switched a few input cables, swapped L&R. Then whole amp shutdown....


Hi..

I've worked on similar units.
Things I'd check first :
Dust in the unit.
Weak solder connections /crusty debris stuff on the input jacks or output terminals
Any flex cables soldered in tend to be a problem on peavey amps I resolder all those contacts.
Checking the amp w/o a load IS NOT a good suggestion.
What style output connections are you using?
1/4 inch, binding post, or Neutrik style?

I have a pair of peavey sp5 speakers that i can not get to play full range they will play high and low but not full range


what sort of amp are you driving these with?
is the amp set up with buit in x-overs?
check these settings?
Boxs should be configured already for full range from manufacture unless they have been altered since purchase,

Whats really funny is that your getting either tops or bottoms from them but not both at the same time......hmmmm
they are supposed to be full range cabinets,very good ones at that.
I suspect the amp is either faulty or x-overs are poked.
some times leads are a also the blame too.poor connections,etc.
if x-over is poked you will hear an ear peircing noise and a paper duding noise if the cones were gone,like a giant transistor radio with no bass and a very high pitched trebble burning a hole in your head,

Ok heres a cheap test,

Take the speakers to another amp and test them,
If same result then you know the answer

Let me know the results thanks
