Step 1:

Hate to say it, but possibly a blown speaker. To check this, do the following -


Step 2:

Insert headphones into jack to verify for sound there.

Step 3:

Unplug unit and open rear panel to reveal speakers.

Step 4:

Remove leads from woofer.

Step 5:

Using a multimeter, set to OHM (horseshoe) to lowest setting.

Step 6:

Apply red(+) and black(-) to speaker leads. Meter should read at least 4-8 ohms of resistance.

Step 7:

If no reading, then voice coil is blown.

Step 8:

If no meter available to use, the use a 9 volt battery by applying direct connection to speaker leads in an off-and-on fashion - You should hear a "click" sound come from speaker. If no "click," then speaker is blown.

Step 9:

If click is heard, and resistance on meter is correct, then the amp circuitry leading to the woofer may be blown = repair needed.

My Behringer pmp2000 is now only giving an output through the tweeter horns of my speakers so the sound is very tinny. Any suggestions as to what might be wrong?


Your woofers are probably blown. To check plug a 1/4 inch or speakon into the speaker cabinet with the two bare wires exposed on the opposite end and touch with a 9volt flat battery if the driver doesn't move ir sound it's blown

I assume you mean the Pr-12RX passive? That seems wrong to me, too. Put an ohm meter across the terminals of the horn driver and the woofer seperatly to see which, if either, is blown. If they're OK, look for a bad solder joint on the crossover.

Will an Eminence Beta 15A speaker (`5", 300w, 8 ohm) fit/work in the k3000fx? If so, will there be a trade-off or consequence of performance? I already own the Beta speaker, and have a chance to...


It ill probably work, however I have had to do body-and-fender work on a speaker cabinet where the new frame would not quite set in the existing hole in the mounting board. The Eminence speakers are supposed to be good... are you sure the Behringer amp is OK? The K1800FX uses a conventional linear amp... not sure about the K3000fx... The only possible problem I could see is that the original speaker (Bugera 15 inch)may have a different response and the tweeter may not match too well. You can probably adapt using th EQ should this be the case.

On my peavey pro 15 neo speakers i don't know which wire is for what. What is the black, red, blue and yellow wires for?


black and red will goto 1 speaker. and blue/yellow to the other. typically red and yellow are + and black and blue are -. the crossover board might tell you which is which where they solder to it. but i'm pretty sure the black/red goto woofer. try hooking up both to woofer and listen to it. 1 way is going to sound horribly wrong lol. that will mean you hooked up the tweeter leads to the woofer. but DO NOT HOOK UP WOOFER LEADS TO TWEETER. thats why i say to do it on woofer.

I need a color coded wiring diagram for a peavey PV115 speaker cabinet.


Usually the colors you will find are red and black pair and yellow and white... USUALLY the red/blk pair go to the tweeter horn with red going to the + lead of the horn drivers. Usually the yellow/white pair go to the woofer with the white going to the + lead of the woofer in Peavey speakers... HOWEVER you never know if someone has rewired the cabinet so going by colors is NOT the best way to go... This should have the "soundgard" circuit in it and the lead that goes throught the lamp and resistor that is NOT connected to the inout jack is the TWEETER + lead. The pair that connects to the inout jack DIRECTELY is the woofer leads and the TIP connection of a 1/4 inch jack is the + woofer lead. Verifying these connections is the best method.

My ultratone k3000fx does'nt sound anymore. What can be the problem ? Thank you.


Here is your service schematic:

http://elektrotanya.com/behringer_k1800fx.zip/download.html

Scroll down to "Get Manual" and click on it to download. The file is compressed and the preamp/FX is on one, the power amp on a second, and a trivial tweeter crossover on the third... I did not see the power supply. Check speaker for continuity of voice coil. Else it is likely a power amp failure.

I own a Behringer Ultratone K3000fx 300 watt PA/Keyboard Amp that stopped putting sound out. The amp is getting power just not putting out any sound at all. Just wondering if this is an easy fix or I...


This is most LIKELY an electronic problem... possibly in the final power amp. Repair may be a simple failed component or a mass number that fail like a stack of dominos. Take it to a shop for repair.

Hi, I have a problem with both of my Mackie MR8s. They both play really quiet, like ridiculously quiet with no low end at all. They don't make that "clicking" sound when you turn them on either....


The woofers were likely the problem in the first place. DO an ohmmeter check on them.

Note that the ohmmeter often doesn't work for testing piezo tweeters, but does work for the woofers with voice coils.

Need to find out which is the proper speaker wires for hook up yellow to tweeter or sub? And striped one is positive or negative?


You can probably trace which colors go to the smaller of the amps... Yellow is often used for tweeter but there really is no standard. Striped wire is probably the minus lead. If a pair is heavier, that would be the pair for the woofer... and red is often positive for woofer and black the minus. Searching the Mackie schematics doesn't really show colors. You could call their service dept.

Peavey PR15-D Powered speakers, Power on but no sound.


Check for impedance ( resistance) in ohms on the speakers disconnected from the circuit using a volt/ohm meter. I think the woofers are 8 ohms and the tweeters are 8 ohms. Also check for bad solder joints where the jacks are soldered to the circuit boards.
