Re: peavey eurosys 500 watt 4 ohm pa speaker fault.very...
Indeed, sounds like a blown voice coil. Peavey Eurosys cabinets use Scorpion drivers, which have field-replaceable baskets. I assume the cabinet is a Eurosys 500XT? If so then you need a 15" replacement basket - part no. 15425 - about £75, but cheaper than replacing the entire speaker. Can purchase from http://www.neathmusic.com/products.aspx?stext=scorpion&action=search&mode=search&submit=GO.
Re: peavey eurosys 500 watt 4 ohm pa speaker fault.very...
Sounds like the basket has gone on the driver not sure if they are replaceable or if you will have to replace the entire driver, had the same problem on my impulse 1015, cost about £100 from a peavey dealer.

No you need a preamp for the microphone found on audio mixers. You will not get good sound from it even if you do buy a mini mixer to provide a preamp for the mic. I would suggest a pa like the ones in this link. Most of them have built in mixers (with preamps) also.
The speakers are 8 ohm (three 2 ohm in series in each cabinet).
You can connect them in parallel with others HOWEVER you cannot go below 4 ohms a side with your amp. This means you could use ONE other 8 ohm speaker in parallel with one of the passport speakers PER side.
Since the amp can vastly exceed the passport speaker rating you need to be careful to not overpower the passport speakers. One way to HELP regulate the level to the passport speakers is to use a LONG small gauge speaker cable on the passport speakers. Use a 50 foot 16 gauge speaker cable while using heavier, shorter cables on your mains.
With your Samson I would use mains rated at 300 Watts CONTINUOUS power, or at least maintain discipline in volume level to [revent speaker damage.
ALWAYS loop your speaker cables through handles of the enclosure to prevent them being pulled out during use which will destroy your amp... VERIFY the plugs are seated before pwering the system.
Sounds like the beginnings of a rubbing voice coil in your MX160. Verify this by trying another set of headphones on your amplifier/MP3 player/etc. If the "scratching" sound disappears then your music source is not the fault. PLEASE REMEMBER...never turn music source volumes up past 60-65% (think of 1:00-1:30 on a clock face). If these setting are not loud enough, use a booster or move up to a unit with more audio output power. On a larger scale...How did I blow my 100 watt speakers with a 50 watt amp? It's easy....clip (overdrive) your amp....Glen
You should consider a microphone with more power to get the volume you need. I can personally recommend the CAD C195 Cardoid Condensor microphone. It has great output. The only downsidefor most people is that they don't have phantom power. This is what gives the mic its boost. In order to get the most out of any micrphone, you need to have a preamp, an equilizer, and an output. The output is your PA system that drumbanger mentioned.
But since you are using a Peavey, here is my strong recommendation. Get a mini preamp, and hook it up to your Peavey. You can use a Behringer 2mic mixing board for your preamp. It's small, and it can sit right on top of the Peavey.
1. Even though you have some kind of peak limiting on your mics, the signal might still be peaking somewhere along the audio path and causing distortion. Gain controls might be set too high somewhere along the way.
2. The amp you are using might simply be driving too much power for the speakers to handle.
3. A faulty connection, connector, wire or input could cause distortion of something like distortion which is of course would be more apparent at higher volumes.
4. Equipment placement could be picking up sounds or interference from other sources.
5. If you are able to discern level peaks but they are occasional and not flat out, then a compressor placed in the mic signal path could certainly help - otherwise see # 1 above.
Assuming your PA is a Yamaha STAGEPAS (although I thought 500 watts per side was the biggest one you could get). Anyway, on your PA's panel you will have the karaoke machine(s) plugged into the CD ins (top of the panel), while closer to the bottom you'll see the 'monitor outs' L and R 1/4 inch jacks. These are where you'd run the L and R from the PA into your Tascam (or L alone for mono out). The monitor outs are line level and are good for independently powered speakers, recording equipment, mixers etc. Just avoid using any outputs labelled 'speakers'.
in audio system you have three different levels. 1-mic level which is very small output level. 2-line level(like cd player output)which is higher than above. 3-speaker level is highest one which drive speaker and get sound out from it. if you want to get control for number 1 and 2 you can use very simple sound mixer.(from radio shack-or other electronic store) connect your sound source(mic-cdplayer)to the mixer and get out from mixer to amplifier.
Because of the very wide dynamic range of the human voice, specially when singing, the microphone you use, needs to be smart(usually expensive) to do the job properly. When going cordless, the electronics needs to be even smarter. A windscreen will not solve the problem.
I do not know of ANY low-cost radio mic that would not frustrate you for ever and a day. Rather spend a little more and be happy.
If allowed, I can introduce you to a very budget tipe entry level radio mic, that would work much better: Beyerdynamic OPUS 168 mk2 This mic works on a diversity UHF frequancy that receives a very clear signal for at least 100 feet. It also works with a "compander" , that improves the dynamic range. You will propably pay about $300 for it, but it will last lots of years with much less frustations. Sorry, there is no inexpensive way out on this one. PA Master
