I have a Behringer nu4-6000 amp that I am trying to connect Peavey 215 speakers (2-1/4 inputs). How do you connect the 4-pole cable that is bi-amping from d Behringer speakon, 1/4 only uses 2 cables.


I can't give you a definite answer but I suspect the Peavey speakers with their four wires require a different sort of amplifier.to the conventional type.

You will be aware in lots of speaker enclosures are one or two drive units and a tweeter. Ensuring the right frequency of signal goes to the right speaker will be a filter or crossover which is also housed in the enclosure. This has been the common way to deliver a good sound forever.

There has been a fashion for delivering a good sound differently by placing the filter network or crossover in the pre-amp stages and then delivering the different frequency signals to two, three or more power amplifiers, each one designed to amplify a particular frequency range and in this way fewer compromises are made to the purity of the resulting sound. Each amplifier would have an output through a pair of wires destined for the drive unit is was designed for.

Two and three rack amplifiers have been a very popular way of delivering sound in cinemas, in particular a powerful bass. I haven't personally been involved with such an amplifier but I remember the magazine Wireless World publishing a series of articles about the system and the instructions for building one.

These are just my thoughts on the matter and your next step would be to examine the internal wiring of your speakers to be sure.

KRK Rokit monitor has no sound from bottom speaker (the larger speaker for lows and mids) the unit powers up fine and i get sound through the tweeter.


What you are describing is a total component failure of something in the crossover board. You cannot really check a crossover without an oscilloscope and a frequency generator. In a lot of cheap speaker systems, there is no crossover board attached to the woofer. In your case it appears that a low pass filter is present on the woofer. http://circuitdiagram.net/loudspeaker-system-crossover-network.html

How to connect subs and mains to the same pv2600


This will depend on your Subs. If they have an inbuilt crossover there will be input and outputs on the rear, with the output marked something like 'tops' or 'Output to HF'

If you have these then it should be a simple matter of connecting yout amp to the subs and then the mains to the output.

If you haven't got a crossover in the subs then you will either need to buy a pair of two way crossovers for the right power and frequency and have these in the speaker wiring or use the amp's inbuilt crossover and run one channel for tops and the other for subs. You will lose stereo but the amp will happily drive a 2ohm load so you should still be able to use all four speakers.

Hi folks...I have a Behringer HA 400 Micro Amp. My question is: as I am a bass player/guitarist. Can I put my bass or guitar through this device. I understand that it will accommodate 1 instrument at a...


You can put just about any instrument through any amp. The difference in sound will be whether or not that amp was designed for the particular frequencies of that instrument. Also whether or not the speakers you are using are designed for those frequencies. When playing bass you need speakers designed to carry low frequencies (40 - 400 hz); mid-ranges and tweeters don't cut it. Set your instrument volume on the guitar at 70 - 90 % to get the most signal from the instrument. Set output volume on the amp at 50 - 70 %, then adjust gain on the amp to get required sound level. You're not likely to blow the amp, but you could blow the speakers if the amp delivers more power than the speakers can handle. With a micro amp check the output rating. It's possible you may not have enough power to get the sound you want and as you turn up the gain the sound will distort.

My crossover on Behringer speaker cab ba-115 (15" bass driver plus tweeter) is bad. Does anyone have the schematic before I tear it apart?


There is very little to an inspeaker crossover that could go bad unless it was SEVERELY overdriven. I recommend checking the speaker individually on a wire from a stereo or something powered to verify this. A crossover is nothing more than a capacitor (high cutoff) and an inductor.(low cutoff). The 600 watts rating of the cabinet is an RMS rating, meaning, .707 actual peak value free of distortion. This means that you can only drive it about 71% of that without distorting or damaging it. You said, "very little signal gets to the speaker", which sounds like "very low volume" meaning, magnet stuck, speaker not moving much, meaning warped voice coil. Check that the speaker will move back and forth with your hand freely without interference or scratchy noise. If it doesn't, the voice coil is warped and the speaker needs to be reconed or replaced.

MAckie 1604 VLZ Pro Mixer, running QSC 1850 with jbl's from main outs. I would like to hook up powered subwoofers. What is the correct pathway? kenshireman@msn.com


The best way is to use a two-way crossover between the mixer and the amplifiers. In your case, the low output from teh crossover would go to the powered subs, the highs to the QSC. Use the crossover adjustment to set the frequency crossover point to get the sound quality you require.

Can i connect the pv 112 to the pv 118 subwoofer since the powered mixer i bought it only has 2 main outputs? The powered mixer I bought is the PV XR 8600D powered mixer...


Generally speaking you should only send low frequencies to subs. The highs, while lower in power than the lows, will over time harm the voice coils. The ideal way to do this is to use an external crossover netween the main output and the amp input with the higher range going to a general set of speakers. Send the lows through the second channel of the amp and then to the subs.

In short, while not recommended, yes you can hook them up in parallel.

I need to know step by step how to hook up my entired system using my macki board. I have a Mackie 1604 Vlz, a power amp for mains, a power amp for subs, a crossover, a vocal effects processor, and a 16...


ok, first thing will be the effects processor. look for the "aux sends" output jacks near the bottom center of the rear panel. run a 1/4 inch instrument cable from "aux send" 3 out into the input on the vocal processor, and run another from aux 4, if the effects processor has 2 inputs. then, from the vocal processors output, run 1/4 inch cables back into the "stereo returns" on the mixer, (located on the rear panel on the bottom, extreme left) 2 outputs per input, since its making stereo effects. so, if you ran just send 3 into the processor, you should have a left and right return instrument cables into the mixer for "stereo return" 3 (left and right). if your processor has 2 imputs, and you are using both "aux send" 3 and 4, then you will have to have a pair of cables going to each "stereo return" for 3 & 4. -to apply effects to a microphone(s), you would adjust the individual aux send levels for each channel you want to have effects, and you would have to ensure that the master aux sends and returns are also turned up..

ok, the snake is simple, each xlr (3 prong mic) connector on the snake is labeled, so, just plug each xlr jack into the corresponding channel on the board, and plug the first 2 1/4 inch ends of the snake into the "C/R out balanced" outputs on the board, located on the rear panel, up and to the left a bit.

at the stage end of the snake, ues a 1/4 inch instrument cable to copnnect the first 2 1/4 inch jacks on the snake to the left and right inputs of the crossover. then, from the crossover, connect the sub power amp to the "low" stereo outputs of the crossover with instrument cables, and connect the main speakers amp to the "high" stereo outputs of the crossover with instrument cables. if its an adjustable corssover, you will want to have it crossed over somewhere about 80-120 hz to allow only the lowest frequencies to the subs.

now, from the amps to the speakers, we ane going to have to use heavier 12-14 gague SPEAKER CABLES, instead of light gague instrument cables. hook the subs up to the stereo speaker outs of the sub amp with speaker cables, and do the same for the main speakers.

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.

Wiring problem on kb 300


You have probably bypassed the crossover that directs different frequencies to the appropriate speaker/horn.

The speakers are designed to be used the way they were delivered. It is easy to damage them when connected wrong.

I would suggest you restore the circuit to the way it was designed to avoid damage to speakers or the amp.
