Q.i have exacly the same set up. from the amp do i run the cables to the tops first then link to the subs or visa versa'

also when playing bigger venues and driving the pa hard the DDT system on the amp sometimes cuts the power off momenterally .

is this because of its being pushed too hard ??
is this how it should work ??
is it ok for the DDT leds to clip ??

Hi don't know if you have sorted this yet, you need to wire your cables that go from sub to top +2 -2 on the speakon (on the sub end only) HTH

How to connect subs and mains to the same pv2600


This will depend on your Subs. If they have an inbuilt crossover there will be input and outputs on the rear, with the output marked something like 'tops' or 'Output to HF'

If you have these then it should be a simple matter of connecting yout amp to the subs and then the mains to the output.

If you haven't got a crossover in the subs then you will either need to buy a pair of two way crossovers for the right power and frequency and have these in the speaker wiring or use the amp's inbuilt crossover and run one channel for tops and the other for subs. You will lose stereo but the amp will happily drive a 2ohm load so you should still be able to use all four speakers.

How do I wire up my 4subs in bridged to my peace 2600


Hi,

Please state the subs impedance, but assuming 4 subs with 8Ohm Voice Coil you CAN'T run them in parallel in Bridge Mono because this amp's minimum impedance is 4Ohm in bridge and 2Ohm stereo, maybe a series/parallel connection work, but what's the advantage to run them in Bridge mode? This amp delivers 900W per channel at 4Ohm, you can run a pair paralleled for each channel in a safe way and without the high-risk of your amp being destroyed, besides, amp power at 4Ohm Bridged is NOT recommended for continuous use, let me know your results...

Can one(1) Peavy PV 2600 amp provide enough power for two(2) Yorkvilles 15" 300W full range and two(2) Yorkvilles 18" 400W subwoofers?


It should be able to do this. You would need to put each type speaker on a seperate side and then use either an elctronic crossover or an EQ set to pass only lows into the side for the subwoofer to block sending highs to the subs.

I have 2 peavey 2600 amps with 1 pv6 mixer wanting to run subs off 1 amp and sp2s off other amp but only have 1 main output on the pv6 mixer whats my solution


Hi there,
you can run one amp from the main out puts and the second amp from the CTRL Room out puts. The CTRL ROOM are outputs that are linked to the same bus as the master fader. This will work fine...
Best of luck

Was gigging with peavey 112xt subs and hisys 6 rx sats, one side went very low and ive isolated the problem to one of the subs, i was using dynachord 1000 powermate and driving it pretty hard, have i blown...


To pjstokes.I have exactly the same set up as you and have experienced the same problem. So far I have Changed The Bulbs inside the tops and also replaced the thermal fuses on the soundguard circuits (which are inside the 6XT tops) but still have the problem. Only when the cabs are driven hard do they stop working, no problems at low volume. Peavey don't have a solution. I think maybe some of the other components have blown but I don't know which ones. If anyone knows a solution please post it here.

CAN I POWER UL15 AND XT115 [WITH CROSSOVER] WITH 1 AMP


You need 1 channel of amplifier per stack. Assuming the ul 15 is a full range box, and the XT115 is a subwoofer. But be careful with your Ohm ratings for the speakers and your power ratings of your amps. You want the proper Ohm load on the amplifier for maximum power. And use proper speaker cable, with correct wiring.

Wire the to the sub first, and then jump to the ul 15.

Run a sub woofer to a peavey board


I would recommend using a separate active crossover such as the Peavey 23XO and a separate amp for your subs.

PV 2600, couple years old, light usage. Connected to two PV SP3K speakers. One channel started to cutout somewhat but not all the way, Switched a few input cables, swapped L&R. Then whole amp shutdown....


Hi..

I've worked on similar units.
Things I'd check first :
Dust in the unit.
Weak solder connections /crusty debris stuff on the input jacks or output terminals
Any flex cables soldered in tend to be a problem on peavey amps I resolder all those contacts.
Checking the amp w/o a load IS NOT a good suggestion.
What style output connections are you using?
1/4 inch, binding post, or Neutrik style?
