Question about Peavey AMPLIFIER, 1000 WPC, DDT, 8/4/2 OHMS => Model PV2000 Car Audio Amplifier

2 Answers

Mic feedback. I sing on a shure beta 58 mic, into a 350 watt peavey amp, into 2 - 200 watt peavey speakers. My band is loud, and I simply cannot get my mic loud enough for them to hear me, without constant feedback, and an incredibly reverb sound at least. I tried a friend's audix om5 mic and my problems were gone. My shure mic is (supposedly) better quality. How can I set my peavey amp (or what can I do) to make my shure mic perform better? I do not want to have to purchase another mic! Help please.

    Thank you guys so much, this really helped. My mic sounds great now. Another thing I found that really helped is balancing out all the eq's to zero before beginning to turn the volumes up.

It sounds as though you are pointing the peavey at the band in a practice situation? If so make sure that each speaker is at about 60 degree angle to either side of the back of the mike (you facing the speakers), most mics reject feedback when the the user is directly in front of a monitor, but Beta 58s' tend to feedback more in that situation. Alternatively (if it is a practice room situation), why not place the speakers behind the band at 60 degrees each and turn to face the band.

I had the same problem with my band, and had the sure 58, and it went through a kustom pa. first try getting them (speakers) off the floor if they are monitors, put them on stands. then watch the master volume compared to the master volume on the channel of the mic you are using. first set the main master volume then turn up the volume on the mic channel just before it starts to feedback. also check the peavey amp to see if it has an xlr button (basically supplies a better signal). if the feedback continues turn down the high start at 5 (then go down from there), tweek up the mids 4-5, and the lows about 4.

How many watts per channel?


Hi Peter.

Your question is fairly open, so I'll give a couple of answers to anticipate:
  1. If you're wanting to match the amp to your speakers, you want to go above the power rating of the speakers, but not hugely so. If you have 40 watt speakers, you don't want a 40-WPC amp because it'll be running at full power to use the speaker capacity, and it'll probably sound awful. Amps are much smoother when you're not coming close to their capacity, and your music will sound better. Likewise, a 40 watt speaker running at 40 watts will also sound pretty bad. The limits on speakers usually allude to damage thresholds, or limits where they'll distort like a stump-talking politician. Talk to a dealer about how much 'THD' (Total harmonic distortion) the amp has at different power levels, and how to match it to your speakers.
  2. If your goal is to be able to announce your presence from a block away from the subsonic thudding escaping from the interior, you'll still want to look at the speaker ratings and spec the amp perhaps 50-100% higher than the speaker capacity. Full power on a big subwoofer will still sound crummy if you're driving it to capacity, but in some cases people won't care so long as it's loud. (I don't advise this route - I'll tell you from first hand experience with loud environments as a younger person that being several decades older and constantly missing parts of conversations is no fun)
Hoping this helps!

How do i get full power out of my kenwood kac-1520s amplifier hooked up to two 12" audiobahn 400 watt subwoofers


Your amp is under powered for those speakers (350 max. watt). Even if your subs were 2 ohm your amp will only put out 75 watts X 2 at 2 ohms, if you bridge that amp you might be asking for trouble . I'm guessing there both 4 ohm. Look around for a 2 ohm stable mono amp with more power and you won't be sorry. Ray

Sub is too loud


While looking at the Sony Home Theatre System screen, push the display button to get a menu. Before this will work, you have to push the DVD/CD button on the remote (can't get the menu if the source is on TV/Cable). Go down to custom then navigate to the bottom option, which is speaker setup. Go to Level Front then go down to Subwoofer and press enter, then change the setting to your liking (1 is the most quiet, 6 is loudest). On a seperate topic (has nothing to do with adjusting volume), I would also put the calibration mic (included) in the designated port on the front of the system and do the auto calibration while holding the mic in the general area where your ears will normally be. It'll adjust outputs of all speakers according to the distance of the speakers to where you held the mic. To start this, push display, go the bottom option again, but this time choose quick. Push the enter button 4 times to skip the other stuff, then click on yes whenever you have the mic plugged in and have it positioned in the center of where everyone's ears will be.

How can you bridge a 2 channel 300 watt amp to a 4 channel 300 watt car amp?


if you have (4) 4 ohm speakers (No Subs), then you simply take the (2) positives from the two right speakers, and the (2) negatives together and put them on the right output of the amp. Do the same for the other side. This will have the amp at a 2 ohm stereo load on each side, which will max out the power of the amp. Will sound great with any small power amp.

Need advice on setting up amp with my two speakers.


This is hard to explain and what needs to be done is wire in parallel both subwoofers. This website will help just put in the amount of speakers and amount of ohms each and it gives you diagram.

180 watts mixer/amplifier and 400 watts speakers


Hiya, they are thermally or DC protecting. You will have to add some extra cooling if you can, external fan etc. Bottom line is you are going to have to crank it down a tad or increase amps and speakers. If its DC protection, its because the distortion levels are 2 high. Very easily achieved with mics not compressed. Again, try tone them down a tad.

Hope that helps
