Question about Peavey Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

One out of the two microphones is intermittent.

(431FX Peavey Equalizer) with FLS
It cuts out at times even though snapping the mike with your finger causes audio output at the speaker. It seems to work better for some people over others. I notice the input level padding is right to the lowest setting. Does the equalizer have a VOX cct that requires a certain level of audio to trigger the amp on? Arranging for another mike for testing but was wandering if you can offer any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Hi Ken....

I just fixed one of those but not for the same issue.

The manual is on the peavey site (archived)

That will tell you if there's a VOX ckt inside.

If opening the case doesnt scare you, open it ( UNPLUGGED) and reseat the ICs(integrated curcuits) that are socketed

I need a new channel changing Mike for a Realistic TRC 476. The cord for the Mike was cut and even though repairs were done the radio just scans through every channel very quickly and constantly.


You should check the new cable wiring connections. There is a resistor in that microphone that connects to the channel button circuit, it is (electrically) between switch 5 (up) and pin 3. If this not present then it may be causing your issue, IT is also possible that the diode for that circuit (located on the main board) got damaged when the cord was cut. diagram: http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/realistic/trc_476/476_print.htm

Must open up a Peavey DPM3 SE to repalce battery. Have removed nearly every screw and bolt on the unit, no luck. Any suggestions?


Most likely secured with plastic snaps as well. PLEASE research though B-4 tugging with too much force as you could break the case. I often find additional screws hidden under labels and/or rubber/plastic feet on bottom. Good luck.

Sound cuts out


Hi Darren.
I suspect you may be right about the eq here, though you probably have had it sorted by now.
I came across this thread because I was searching for a fix to my R-231 and was hoping you might be able to help me if you found a fix. I'm persisting with this one as I can't really get another just now and it seems that it's not a major issue. I managed to get a good signal out of it when I ran it without the ground connected on output???
Anyway, any info I would greatly appreciate,
Thanks, Rob dronno@live.com.

The settings on my Peavey Q215FX dual 15 band graphic equalizer w/fls have been changed and I am unsure where they were set at and what the correct settings should be.


Assuming that you eq is installed in your system correctly add a source like a cd of the type of music you will be putting through the system. Now starting at 0 on all frequencies adjust to your liking. Try to avoid going above 0 as much as possible because this will be adding to that particular frequency and could damage your speakers if done incorrectly.

If there is too much bass lower your sliders to the left. If there is not enough highs boost the sliders to the right up to about half way then start decreasing the bass to get the desired effect. Small increments is important.

I found that if you go to your local music store the people there are more than willing to help you.

Mic snaps and cracks when you move the cords. Have changed cords several times. Something may be loose in the mic.


Try tightening the set screw in the tail of the mic near the XLR connector. I that doesn't work it's got to be some loose internal connection.
