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.

If you read the TRUE specs on this speaker it is really a 200 Watt RMS unit. Make sure you are using balanced lines to the speaker XLR or TRS cables. The mixer should NOT be a passive mixer as these do NOT generate true balanced lines. Make sure the mic can't "hear" the speaker or you may be getting supersonic feedback that is above your hearing range that saturates the amp. If *********** can't stand to be ain a 15 foot square room with teh level you are generating, it is TOO loud for this unit to handle.

The speakers are 8 ohm so you can probably get near the 400 Watt per side when connected to this mixer. You don't need bridge mode to get this and I would recommend not using it anyway. Whatever you do make sure the speakers don't get disconnected when running at high volumes as you will arc out the amp in the mixer... I know this as I fix them...

The feedback is NOT the fault of the mixer or speakers but instead of something picking up sound from the speakers and sending back to the mixer.

The mic must be well in back of the speakers (say at least 10 feet) to avoid this or you need to use anti-feedback hardware to avoid the problem or highly directional close talking mics. Reverberation off walls can also get back to mics and cause problem. I was able to use a wireless Peavey mic which seemed to disrupt the phase enough to never get into an oscillation even when in front of the speakers.

Hi
tip
I have a beta 58 and in the box their is a little paper how looks like a triangle and it show you at what angle you should put the monitor to avoid feedbacks! The mic is supercardoide so the blind spot is not in front of the mic but at 60 degrees precisely. If you find the sweet spot for the monitors, I can guaranty you won't have any feedback.
look in you beta58 box for the paper
Good luck

REVERBERATION


clearer sound = more watts / more power.
amp watts? speaker load/impedence ohms output from amp? those peavey speakers will sound good if they are powered correctly. plus try to keep the mic away from the speakers, which brings me to my next suggestion..... mic??? this will also affect your clarity.

Shure beta 58


Benimur, you are correct, except that the Beta 58 is a condenser mic that required phantom power. In that case all 3 lines are used. Included below are the connections.
