Question about Amplifiers & Preamps
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???

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.

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

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.

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
