The Peavey A/B controls are output gain controls. Your mixers stereo output goes into the amps inputs, channels A & B. The Peavey is the output stage to your speaker system. If you you connect the outputs from a power amp to the inputs of a mixer you will blow the mixers input stage, amongst many other things and possibly damage the amplifier too. The bias (Bass, Mid, Treble controls) are on the mixer, not the amplifier. Unless you are using a mixer amp, which you are not. A PA system DOES NOT work in the same way as an intergrated hi fi amp.

Yes I agree with Punkey Ren...also note that the A gain control ( volume control) is the equivalent of a left control and that B would be equivalent to the right stereo channel. You don't have to use this amp as a stereo amp though. You can use it as 2 separate mono channels. Note also that the input and output jacks on the back are marked for channels A and B as well...I agree witht he other comments. The outputs of this amp should only be attached to speakers for use or some other appropriate test load for repair

Is the bass boost the gain or frequency knob?


Bass boost simply adds DB or gain to the bass signal. Some like it, some dont.
The frequency knob is the Low Pass Filter (LPF) that cuts off the amp output above
the set frequency. A bass system usually cuts off below 400 HZ and more often 200HZ.
A good, rattle your car bass note is in the 25-80HZ range or lower but most amps and audio
input devices cant attain a good low note with clarity.
"Low-pass filter allows only frequencies below the crossover point to be amplified. A high-pass filter allows only frequencies above the crossover point to be amplified - useful for keeping low bass away from small speakers, so they can play more efficiently."

How to get the best sound


punk and metal tones (late 80s): treb-7 mid-6-7 bass 6-8, presence 6-10, gain/distortion all the way up. classic rock just turn down the gain/distortion to 6-7. bridge pickup

metal mid 90s & up: treb 6-7, mids 3-5, bass 7-9, gain all the way up, presence (which is a mid and treble boost) 4-6. bridge pickup

blues SRV: treb 6, mid 6, bass 7.5, presence 8, gain 5, reverb (if you got it). use your neck pick up

of course this is subjective and depends on the guitar, cable quality, etc. it looks like a small speaker with a low watt output. that little speaker in there is going to be hard to articulate any tones. more than likely it will have a harsh bit to it cause the value of the pots and the logarythm you hear. reduce treble as needed to smooth out the harsh, keep the mids up.

I got a 800 watt amp from my friend and he didnt have instruction


What's the exact model of your amp? For taking the higher frequencies/treble out of the subwoofer, the amp should have a little button on the side that says "Hi Pass" or "Low Pass" or maybe an adjustable knob-thing that says "X-Over". These will set a cut-off frequency for your sub output. Some amps don't have this feature, but many do.

Lightning strike to powered console.


On a generic level, without knowing the specifics of your equipment, I.E. amp & mixer make/model, you start at the mixers input stage. If an amplifiers output transistors die, they usually cause the amp to trip or blow a fuse, the weakest point in the system. If the amp is not doing this then the chances are, it's an line level problem, mixer related.  Again, you have to list the equipment you have in order for me to be more specific.

May i suggest removing the equilizer unless you can adjust the settings for each amp seperatly. The amps themselves will allow you to add bass boost and treble boost. I think the problem your having is trying to run to much bass through your system causing it to distort badly.
