Open Question

My Earth Wire is loose inside my peavey XR800F.

I recently opened my peavey amp to vacumn and clean inside it. I noticed the Green Earth wire was loosed upon opening and connected it to where I thought it would be.??? On closing and carefully turning on I checked the amp with an electricians screwdriver and realised the amp was live.Have reopened the amp before I reattempt and electrocute myself. Can you help me please???

    where in the case did you 'think it should be'? it should be attached to the chassis of the amp.

YES ! This is usually ok, the speaker cabinet should contain a high pass filter or crossover on the tweeter to decouple it from the low frequency signals. My Linn Index speakers are wired like this.

If a speaker is "blown", there is normally an open-circuit in the voice coil, therefore it emits no sound at all. Can't discount a loose wire, but blown HF drivers are very common.

Hi there.

You have have been unfortunate enough to experience an uncommon failure. The bass driver has failed. It is a Black Widow that can have the basket/cone/voice coil assembly replaced as a complete unit. The magnet unbolts from the basket and you bolt on a new one. Classic field service designed product. You will be able to get a new basket from a Peavey equipment stockist. Just ask for a 15' Black Widow replacement basket They cost about $180 here in Australia and you can easily change it yourself. Good Luck and happy jamming.

A FixYa rating would be great for my tech tip to you. Cheers

regards
Graeme

SOURCE: Hi, Peavey Classic Guitar amp , Has NO SOUND

Hi Mike,

If you switch on the amplifier, do you hear nothing at all?
Or do you hear low level noise or hum out of the speaker?
Don't know if you're technician.
If the tubes are glowing, you can measure the high voltage.
Check also fuse 3 and 4, thats the neg. voltage -27V and -14V.


regards,
Gerard

Hi...

A couple of top screws and some on the back lip of the chassis . The amp slides out but be careful not to pop the speaker leads I own a KB50 and have worked on other KB amps.

Sounds like you need a new reverb spring set.

Peavey is very good for parts

How can you tell if a fuse is blown on a XR 8600 power amp by peavey?


The fuse is probably placed near the power cable entrance in the power amp.
Pick it up from it's placing dock and look for the wire inside. If the wire is whole, the fuze is fine, however, if the wire inside the fuze is missing or burned, the fuze needs to be replaced.

Peavey Rage 158 guitar amp


I don't believe there is a power "outlet" on this, only an "inlet".

Usually the inlet will have a lead, often green, that goes to the chassis.

There will usually be two other wires, often black and white that connect to the other two pins.

From the back of the connector, with the center pin tied to the grenn wire of the triangle lower, the pin to the right should be the white and the pin to the left is the black wire

Peavey XR800F 8 channel - I can't get but very little sound to my big speakers. Help


Troubleshooting is always a "process of elimination." Have you tried hooking up your Peavey powered mixer to another set of speakers? How about connecting the speakers to another audio system? Your term "very little sound" could mean audio input problems, mixer/amp settings or failure and possibly speaker damage (internal passive crossovers). Please be more specific.

Mains wire at back of fridge has come out how do i re-wire it


Hi, are you saying that the main power cord has been pulled loose from all connections? Has any componants come along with it? Wiring a power cord is fairly an easy task if you are familar some what with wire colors for a 120 volt power cord. You should be able to take a good look at where it has come apart and reconnect the cord with wire connectors, as Hot would be black to black, and white is nuetral, so white to white and green for ground to the appliance. Now, If you have accidently pulled out the wiring from the compressor terminals, as the start, run, and common terminal, I need to no this to quide you through this, as there is also a overload relay that is wired through the common terminal to protect the compressor against an overload. Please get back to me if this has happened.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Neutral (white) wire connection


Use caution when dealing with AC, it can be deadly.

The black wire by accepted standards is the 'hot' wire and will measure (when active) 110-125 volts (in the US) to ground or the white neutral wire in a normal household system.
The white wire may have a couple of volts when measured to an earth ground or any green (or green-yellow) wire which is (by standards) connected to earth ground, often via plumbing pipes in some homes, or a visible or buried grounding rod driven several feet into the earth.

The black (hot) wire is the one customarily 'switched.'

I would highly recommend you have a qualified electrician reconnect the strayed wires to protect yourself and the fan.

Check your ground wire! Relocate it to another place in the car and try to get a heavier ground wire aswell.
