Woofer rattles at low volume...when i turn it up it sounds pretty good...still has bass and highs


May be a couple of things; The first is a resonance in the cabinet, which may not be noticeable at high volumes. If the speaker cabinet was ever dropped,or got cracked from dropping , dry weather,or whatever, there may be certain frequencies that make the cabinet rattle. Try holding the cabinet when it rattles and look for anything loose,from a side wall to a loose foot, or the speaker itself. Tighten up loose items and seal any gaps or cracks On the cabinet.
The other problem could be a partially blown speaker. Test by lightly pushing in on the outsides of the speaker to see if it moves in and out freely. If there is a scratching sound, or it drags slightly , it might be blown. Also,the dust cap or another part of the speaker may be loose. Check that, and reseal if loose. Replace or have reconed if blown.

No woofer sound from my K3000FX. Verified all cables and settings correct- but sound only comes from tweeter. What could it be?


Step 1:

Hate to say it, but possibly a blown speaker. To check this, do the following -


Step 2:

Insert headphones into jack to verify for sound there.

Step 3:

Unplug unit and open rear panel to reveal speakers.

Step 4:

Remove leads from woofer.

Step 5:

Using a multimeter, set to OHM (horseshoe) to lowest setting.

Step 6:

Apply red(+) and black(-) to speaker leads. Meter should read at least 4-8 ohms of resistance.

Step 7:

If no reading, then voice coil is blown.

Step 8:

If no meter available to use, the use a 9 volt battery by applying direct connection to speaker leads in an off-and-on fashion - You should hear a "click" sound come from speaker. If no "click," then speaker is blown.

Step 9:

If click is heard, and resistance on meter is correct, then the amp circuitry leading to the woofer may be blown = repair needed.

12" woofer not working


I bought a 3rd B212D unit that powers on, has white noise, no music. I took the 8 screws off and discovered that the solder connection at the woofer had broken off. I surmise that either the unit was dropped or the speaker wire had gotten hot over the years. Since the amp had an open output from the break, the high output burned up as I heard a pop when I turned the volume up. . If your volume wasn't maxed out, you could check the wiring and make sure it is connected & save yourself some change!!!

How do you remove the Speakes (HF and LF drivers, Woofer and Tweeter). The cabnit does not open. The woofer is secured from behind, requiring the cabnit to be opened to service any part of the speaker. HOW...


They used what is a called a "Miter Fold Machine" to cut the cabinet from one long piece to something you can fold up that looks like your cabinet.

The short answer is they did not mean them to be serviced. However the two methods you can use to get into it are,
1- locate the corner where the ends came together and try work them apart,

2- get a sber saw (mistakenly called jig saws these days) to cut a window in the back of the cabinet. Save the insert and attach it to larger piece that fits over the hole- you will change the tuning of the speaker slightly, but the larger panel with the cutout attached will bring the volume back close to original and the overlapping edges of the patch cover should be sealed to the cabinet. Paint them flat black like the originals and they will look better when done.

I have two B215 600 watts speakers. Smoke started to come out of one when it was in use. I continued to use the other one, and about an hour later, the bass on that quit working. Any help with...


Sorry, those speakers are rated at 250 Watts RMS continuous, NOT 600. The speakers are nominally 8 ohms. The PMP6000 will deliver about 250 watts RMS to an 8 ohm load so the speakers should be able to take this as long as you had one per side and NOT using bridged mode of the PMP6000. It is possible that you fried the amp, although the PMP amps have a speaker protection network that shorts the output should the amp hard over. It is strange that you could draw smoke with the setup. Hopefully you were not generating very low frequencies that were below what the speaker could handle OR that you did not crank up the bass with the EQ such that frequencies below the speakers rating were sent at high levels. Your speakers are rated for a low end at 55 HZ. You should have the eq cut the gain below that. The leftmost EQ (50 Hz) should NOT be higher than center... if you boost that one, you likely will be buying new speakers. If you need power below that, then you need to be using subwoofers. Hopefully you haven't damaged the PMP6000... I assume that was the amp you were using, although you haven't stated that. At this point, unless the stuff is under warranty, you nee to open the speakers and see what has blown... could be the woofers or the crossover network...Use an ohmmeter to check the woofer DC resistance... should be between 7 and 9 ohms. If it is open circuit, the voice coil is blown.

On my peavey pro 15 neo speakers i don't know which wire is for what. What is the black, red, blue and yellow wires for?


black and red will goto 1 speaker. and blue/yellow to the other. typically red and yellow are + and black and blue are -. the crossover board might tell you which is which where they solder to it. but i'm pretty sure the black/red goto woofer. try hooking up both to woofer and listen to it. 1 way is going to sound horribly wrong lol. that will mean you hooked up the tweeter leads to the woofer. but DO NOT HOOK UP WOOFER LEADS TO TWEETER. thats why i say to do it on woofer.

I need a color coded wiring diagram for a peavey PV115 speaker cabinet.


Usually the colors you will find are red and black pair and yellow and white... USUALLY the red/blk pair go to the tweeter horn with red going to the + lead of the horn drivers. Usually the yellow/white pair go to the woofer with the white going to the + lead of the woofer in Peavey speakers... HOWEVER you never know if someone has rewired the cabinet so going by colors is NOT the best way to go... This should have the "soundgard" circuit in it and the lead that goes throught the lamp and resistor that is NOT connected to the inout jack is the TWEETER + lead. The pair that connects to the inout jack DIRECTELY is the woofer leads and the TIP connection of a 1/4 inch jack is the + woofer lead. Verifying these connections is the best method.

After working great for over a year my speaker seems to only have treble with no base. Not sure what to do


This is a bi-amped speaker. That means it has a separate power amplifier driving the bass woofer and treble horn. They have a low-level electronic crossover to separate the frequencies to the appropriate speaker. The electronic crossover is the least likely to fail... so you need to do a test:
You will need to open the unit and using an ohmmeter check if the woofer speaker voice coil is open or has continuity...It should be around 6 to 16 ohms. If it is above that, the speaker itself is blown and will have to be replaced. If the speaker has continuity, then the bass amp has failed and will require repairing by person that is adept at electronic repair. Before opening the unit you MIGHT be able to diagnose whether the speaker itself is blown by seeing if the woofer generates a thump when power is turned on or off. If it does, then likely the speaker is OK and the problem is the amp, otherwise the tests above need to be done. Usually these plastic cabinets are held together with seveal scrwes from the back. Some are in :deep "wells" and will require a very long shaft phillips screwdriver... and they often are long screws that wear one out unscrewing them. A genlte pry after removing the screws will separate the back and the front.

I own jamo speakers CL 30. One of the woofers is broken. Can i find anywhere one woofer to replace it?


Best to have it reconed ! The speakers need to be matched pair.

If you are using these for music instrument(s) make sure they are intended for that use. Home stereo speakers won;t take the power that music instrument speakers are designed for by a factor of say four.

If these are mis-applied, don't waste money repairing, but buy instrument grade cabinets.

When I turn the power off on my amplifier my speakers make a loud noise


This often normal to get a pop as the power goes down. The amplifier goes out of balance as the power drops and it drives current into the speakers. This is a design problem and most amps don't even TRY to avoid it. Very large amps have relays that disconnect the speakers an instant before the power collapses to protect the speakers.
