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,
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.

I have the Peavey triflex ii I have power and sound in the subwoofer but nothing on the satellite speakers I get no sound o checked all fuses and they are good. Wires are also good

My recommendation would be to try the satellite speakers, each , by themselves, from another source, say another amplifier, with a cd player or mp3 player hooked up to the source to confirm the speakers themselves are indeed functioning. If you try this, and still have no sound from them, it is the speakers. If they work, then the amplifier section of the Triflex rig is not functioning. A lot of times, Peavey has had issues with the Power transformers going out in their amps. Might have happened. If the speakers don't function attached to another amp, then you may have a blown speaker/crossover/ or maybe an inline breaker or fuse in the speaker . You can remove the back panel of the speaker to check this. It would seem improbable for both to go out at the same time, so my thought would be a breaker on the amplifier section of the Triflex, or the amp itself.

My sub has stopped working. It worked fine for the 3 years i've had it; then nothing. I have never touched the CUT OFF FREQ or PHASE and theVOL has always been at 50%. I connect it to my Yamaha RX-V730...

We're talking Sony SA-WM200 Sub, right?

OK, now we go through the usual drill.

Does it work during speaker setup?

Yes? Not broken. Redefine the failure mode and start over.

No? Is it defined to the receiver?

Yes? Are you sure the RCA cable is ok? Try another.

Still unresolved?

Let's prove it's getting an input. Move the cable from the Sub Woofer Out to either channel of the Main Output (below the speaker connectors) and choose FM as the source. This would eliminate direct a Front Channel signal to the sub, bypassing the internal dependency of directing only LFE to the sub. Granted, there may not be much low bass in the program but a working sub will reproduce something in the presence of full-range signal. You may have to actually touch the driver to feel it moving.

Still nothing?

Then we're doing forensics.

Did it just stop working while you weren't looking or was there something traumatic that preceded it?

Disconnect the power to the sub. If you can access the actual terminals on the back of the speaker driver you could disconnect them and attach speaker leads from, say, your front right speaker, to see if the driver is alive. Or, if you have an ohmmeter, just measure across the terminals. You should have some kind of low single-digit reading but not a dead short. If the driver is ok that would point to an internal amp problem. Too bad. A pro needs to look at it.

I had a Klipsch sub amp die on me and the local guru couldn't do anything with it so I disconnected driver from the amp, ran some cables outside the enclosure from it and got a separate amp to push it. So it's not a total loss.

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?

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.

Horns don't work on sp2 speakers

I've got Peavey SP2's and SP4XT's and they have one common problem. The 22XT Driver needs replacing from time to time. It could be a power spike, overdriving from amp, over heating or dirt/water in horn. The driver is very easy to replace and costs about $40.00. Remove the horn, carefully lift the horn and disconnect black and red wires. Remember red is always +. Remove driver from horn with socket wrench or socket screwdriver, clean the circular gap on horn with masking tape to remove dirt, hand tighten driver screws, connect red and black wires, carefully set horn back in SP2 enclosure and slowly bring up the power. Also be sure to be very careful when setting the new driver/ coil in the horn. You don't want to damage the coils on the new driver at all!

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
