    What are you feeding the amps with, and do you want them all to have the same signal from the processing unit (crossover / mixer)?



    Also are you asking how to connect the speakers correctly? If so, how many subs do you have to connect?



    Cheers

Take a piece of rope and run it through the rack handles and tie a good square knot in it and they will be hooked together.

My cs400 puts out at about 1/10 volume on both channels. Best I can tell with my Huntron is that all transistors, diodes and caps are good. All op amps tested good. Plus and minus 58 vdc and 16vdc on zener board seems fine. The problems is common to both channels.

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.

I have to hook up 4 amps in my car. 4 channel 700 watt ken wood, 2 channel 800 watt Sony, 4 channel 740 watt Jensen ,and a 2 channel Rockford fosgate. Which is best way to hook them up so I'm not ki


Pace posted on Saturday, March 05, 2005 - 01:08 GMT Your subs are dual 4 ohm voice coils so if you want to bridge your 2 channel amplifier to your two subs then wire them parallel, meaning the + to + and - to - ( Do this to both subwoofers), Then run a wire from one positive and one negative on each sub and bring the two positives together and the two negatives together and hook both positives to the far positive connection on your amp and connect both negatives to the other negative on your amp,

This will create a 4 ohm load on your amp.

Although if it's a two channel and you have two subs it's usually pointless to bridge them because if you use one channel per subwoofer its going to be the same as if both subs were bridged. example) 800 watts x 1 bridged power of your amplifie (4 ohms) is the same power as 400 watts x 2 at 2 ohms.

Hello, What is the proper way to connect an Ashly XR1000 Crossover and a Pyle Pro PTA1400 power amp to my Peavey XR8600 so I can use 2 subs? The subs are not powered, but do have a passive crossover...


Here is a link to the manual:http://www.peavey.com/assets/literature/manuals/00513220_7.pdf I didn't look at the manual for the crossover but this is probably the way I would do it. Look at page 13 in the manual : Come out of the Main out (31 in the diagram) into the main in of your crossover. Go out of your crossover Hi and Mid out setting back into Power amp In 1 (labelled 32 in the diagram). Hook your speakers that you normally use to the output jacks on the back of the Peavey. Make sure you match the output impedances. Go out of your crossover low output into the Pyle power amp and out of the Pyle into your subs. Make sure the impedance ratings of all your speakers match the output impedances of your amps. You will only be running in Mono mode as that is the signal output of the Peavey mixer. You can run faux stereo by using the Main monitor Out as 1/2 the pair and the Main Out as the other 1/2 to both channels of the crossover but you won't be getting a true stereo pan mode.

Shuts off when the volume gets turned up didnt do this wen new


A mono amp usually can handle only two 4 ohm subs. You see when you hook up two subs in parallel it drops the ohms too 2 ohms and 3 in parellal drops it to 1 ohms overheating the amp and cause power failure. Unless you bought a Mono amp thats 1ohm stable. But still I've seen cheap 1 ohm stable amps not last long. Also possible your subs are fried too check them with a multimeter and measure each sub ohms.

I have 2 Peavey Impact 1015s and 2 PV 118 Subs. I have a Peavey Kosmos PRO that runs from my Numark CDMix3 to my amps. My two amps that I have are a Peavey CS800x and a Crest Audio CD3000. Could you tell...


Just a note regarding connecting: USE BALANCED lines everywhere you can. Use either XLR if available or TRS type cables. This will reduce noise pickup.

Another hint: For SAFETY of your equipment run ANY interconnected devices from the SAME power source. DO NOT say power the amps from one place and your other equipment from a different outlet. Afford a power distribution system that feeds from a single receptacle or nearby receptacles near a common electrical panel. This will ALSO help avoid noise as well as the hazards to your equipment from ground loops.

How do i connect my pv2600amp to my peavey subs and top speakers, i have the leads but what do i do?


Line outs Left and Right from mixer to power amp Left and Right inputs,
Power amp outs to Subs(if they have passive crossovers built in check specs on subs).
From Subs then to Main spkrs. Make sure power amp is set in stereo mode using this way.

Alternative: You will need at least a 2-way stereo crossover unit inline after mixer and before power amps if the subs don't have a built in passive crossover. Most of them do have passive crossovers in the subs these days. Then separate amps or one channel would drive the subs and the other the main speakers. True stereo would require at least a 2 way crossover and two stereo power amps if hooking them up this way.

There is another option as is common with many sub setups. Send the signal to the mains using L/R outputs from mixer and a separate Mono output to the subs only. Putting only bass/kick and low frequency outputs in this send would help too.

Need to hook up to a 4000 watt amp


Why would you hook up 4000 watt amp to a speaker that has only 1000 watts. Try a 800 watt amp instead unless you just dont want the spealers.

Two amp


I don't know why you'd set the Peavey to 2 ohm to drive 8 ohm speakers??? My other thought is... I wonder if the phase is correct. try reversing one of the speaker wires Left or right side.
