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.

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.

At low volume it is fine after you get to about 20 on the volume it starts to crack,pop and distort very bad what is making this happen


Your speakers may say 350 watts but that is the peak wattage at which they blow up and not a wattage they can sound distortion free at. Look for the RMS wattage which is probably around 40 watts. If you look at the specs on your receiver you will see it will put out a maximum of about 50 watts but the distortion on the receiver is above 1 percent at anything over 22 watts. That means they are going to start distorting at around half volume. The other thing you might check for is a impedance mismatch between the speakers and the receiver. Is the receiver set up for an impedence output of 8 ohms but your speakers are 4 ohms impedance.

For a 12 inch 4 Ohm DVC with 1200 Watts Max/400 Watts Nominal what size amp should I be using?


The speaker info is telling you that a 400watt input is nominal or stable. and handle anything that can Peak up to 1200watt , the speaker can handle the 1200watt but not for long periods. Distortion will likely occur well before then anyway. On my home stereo, I have twin Marshalls which are 500 watt each going to JBL,s rated at 150 watt with 250 peak. The ratings are a bit different from manufacturer to manufacturer. Ive found the system is really powerful but there is very little to no distortion as the amp is not needed to be cranked up to get the volume I want. If you run an amp that is too big for the speakers, it will sound really loud for a while, then distortion happens then watch your speaker cones self destruct or the voice coils burn out. If you run an amp that is too small, you will need to turn it up more for the volume and then distortion sets in earlier, which is the biggest destroyer of any speaker.

I'd like to hook up 2 auto speakers, 4 ohms @50 watts each, in place of my 2- 4 ohm computer speakers with built in amp by sony, the little towers with volume knob. Do you think it will work ok?


it will work fine. the original equipment is 4 ohm but wattage is not stated. likely the original equipment is less than 50 watts. Therefore things should be fine. Start out at low volume and increase gradually. If you hear distortion, turn it down.

Peavey speakers making no sound


Try connecting them to another amplifier...you can use the speaker output of a guitar amp as a quick test. If the amp (and mixer) check OK, it sounds like you are about to become good friends with your local speaker reconing shop.

Remember...Distorted Audio Can Kill Speakers even at low volumes. It happens because sine waves become square waves. Google it for additional information.

Useing a Peavey XR 800F Powered PA Mixer/Amp which develops distortion on output after around 60 minutes. Also had gear linked to all inputs at the time, three mics, 2 guitars and keyboard. Any ideas...


First of all confirm if the speaker impedance is not lower then the recommended Ohms at the back of the Mixer speaker socket.You can use an 8 Ohms speaker on a 4 Ohms amplifier but not vise versa .
Next see if the fan on the mixer works. If not the Amp is getting very hot and this will lead to unwanted distortion. You can confirm if its a heat related issue by playing the mixer at low volumes for more than an hour and see if it distorts.

So the wattage of the is 32 watts and voltage is 12.8v. is it?


This makes no sense... 32 Watts and 12.8 volts... something to do with this speaker that is rated at 500 Watts???

If you are trying to calculate something for a car amp you don't understand how they work... that is the only thing I can think given the 12.8 volt thing you stated. Most high power car amps BOOST the incoming battery voltage up with a switching power supply. For instance, they might boost to 48 volts and that applied to a 4 ohm speaker would be 12 amps PEAK maximums. BUT the RMS power is one half that or about 288 Watts in round figures before considering losses.

Many car amps are designed to run with 2 ohm speakers... JUST SO THEY CAN CLAIM massive power values in their ads so you will buy them!

Passive speakers with 1/4 inch jacks do not define either as input as they are wired in parallel...

Assuming the speakers you added were each no less than 8 ohms this should NOT have overloaded your amp.If you have no sound you have probably blown your amp some way.

Note some amps can be blown if they are on and EITHER side of the speaker cable touches a ground. If the amp is running and a 1/4 inch plug is pulled, it shorts and can blow the amp.

I have a Crate PA-8 4 ohm 150 watt PA head that I run to four Peavy 10" PA speakers (two per side in series). It was very good, clean sound, but the speakers were cheap and may have been pushed too hard -...


150 watts should be easily handled by four Peavey speakers in the connection you described.. If the Peavey's are 8 ohms, then your total load was 8 ohms for the series/parallel arrangement which is well within the 2 ohm drive capability of the Crate according to specs.

I question if you really mean the speakers were in series? This requires a special cable to do this. Now if you mean they were "daisy chained" like the amp went to one speaker and another cable connected that speaker to another, then you REALLY had ALL speakers in parallel electrically which would be at the 2 ohm low limit of the amp... In either case, with only 1/4 of the 150 Watts to each, the speakers should NOT have been damaged. The amp MAY have been damaged. Try each speaker individually at a REASONABLE level to test.

If you plug into the effects loop out jack,OFTEN the connection to the internal power amp is broken so you might have to arrange a special cable as a wye to go back into the power amp as well as your external amp. In any case pwere ALL interconnected amps, etc from the same power source/receptacle for system safety.

It sounds as though you are pointing the peavey at the band in a practice situation? If so make sure that each speaker is at about 60 degree angle to either side of the back of the mike (you facing the speakers), most mics reject feedback when the the user is directly in front of a monitor, but Beta 58s' tend to feedback more in that situation. Alternatively (if it is a practice room situation), why not place the speakers behind the band at 60 degrees each and turn to face the band.
