CS-800 buzz in channel a

I have a buzz about half volume and up on channel a of my cs-800. Easy fix or should I trade it ? ALSO.... I have a cs-800 x1 crossover amp that I want to use as a regular power amp to run monitors thru. How can I get the 2 channels to work as a regular amp, do I need to bridge it, and if so how ? Where do inputs go ? patches ? I'm lost...

First a couple of questions:

1) Is the level of buzz controlled by the volume control? Based upon your initial post I would think yes.

2)When you say you want to use the other amp as a regular amp, do you mean to drive a single speaker or more?

Disconnect the input to the amp on the humming channel. If the hum still exists then there is probably a bias problem in the out put section. Check to see if there is a DC voltage on the speaker with no signal applied.

I have a Peavey CS 800. This amp overheats after 20 min on half way blast or full blast. I tried opening it and blowing the dust out and it still does not make a different. Help Please!

What you need to do is track down which part is getting the most hot. Then try replacing it. The best way is not to have it running to long. Then feel around (don't burn yourself) for the part that is generating the most heat. I suspect it will be transistor or IC that has developed a thermal fault.

Pevey CS-800 old fuse not present. What is the correct fuse type for replacement. The fuse holder is on the back of Amp. Thanks.


One of the latest versions has a 15Amp fuse at 115V.
If your CS-800 is connected to 220V, you have to use 7,5Amp (8Amp is OK).

If you are trying to use 3 amps to drive a single cabinet, it can not be done. Bridging amplifiers requires a specific circuit design for that application. There is no way to hook up multiple amps to a single speaker.

Peavey CS-800 PA power amp 1 channel is out

Hi Bill,

It's a log time ago that I repaired those amps., but I give it a shot.
There's a speakerprotection after the finals, what I remember it's a triac (SAC187, or something like that).
You will find it at a small pcb at the back of the amp. Normally it has three legs but the centre is cut away. If it's down you will measure 0 Ohm at the output, also with a switched off amp.

Thats all I can remember, it was about 25 years ago.

Maybe it helps,
