Question about Peavey Vypyr Tube 60 Amp Combo

Open Question

Volume cuts out or shifts low to lower

I read in my cd manual that their were 4 voice settings for my speaker. Step 1 turn off the amp, step 2 hold one of the pre-sets and turn on the amp, now select one of the 4 settings. at this point the volume which I normally play at 3 needed to be turned up to 12 to be the same level. note: in the hour before this all happened I experienced the volume cutting out completely when I attempted to change a pre-set.In case you are wondering, I do not have a pedal.

SOURCE: FENDER HOT ROD DEVILLE 410 POPPING SOUND

I have answered some of this before, however I have reveiwed the schematic and as an electrical engineer I want you to do a couple tests.

First, plug in a set of headphones into the preamp out jack. Note that due to the impedance mismatch what you hear will not be very loud. Now change the state of the clean OD. Did you hear a faint pop?

Next plug a LOW impedance device OR even an instrument cable into the power amp "input" jack. Do this with the power off then warm amp up.
Now, change the state of the clean OD. Did you hear a faint pop?

Now for the analysis. If you did hear one in the first test and NOT in the second, the pop you are hearing is the "NATURE OF THE BEAST".

I can tell you from the design that the pop you hear is from coupling within the clean and OD relays within the unit. There is no cure for this within the unit other than find another brand...

I would recommend that you use an EXTERNAL pedal for the effects you want rather than trying to use the clean OD in this amp. I suspect it was never intended to be shifted during playing as I can guarantee it will pop when you shift while having anything other than dead silence (not even a bit of hum from your guitar). There is also statistical noise in the preamp that the laws of physics will not let us get around that may be enough to create a bit of a pop.

You could also use a volume pedal between the preamp output and the power amp in to throttle the volume to zero before shifting to OD.

In general I think you will find that what you are hearing is the nature of this beast.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I own a Peavey XR696F

check any and all filter,cross-over,and de-coupling capacitors in every circuit especially on the left channel side,but check all capacitors anyway on both channels,as one channel can affect both left and right channels, also a capacitor can heal itself over time and do the same thing again later,"Cold-Solder" joints can do this also, on a printed-circuit board, HINT:heat and cold can cause problems so,try heating, joints,caps,etc. or buy a can of freeze mist(to cool components) at an electronic parts store and gently heat or cool each suspect component waiting for the outcome,or wait till the condition starts and then try the cooling,because the component has already been thermally warmed up by the circuitry power

SOURCE: Wires to main speaker are, Yellow & Blue

Yellow should be the positive. Try plugging in and reversing. The louder of the two is the one in phase and the correct wiring. If the speaker is pushing out when playing , it is in phase and correct also.
The distortion problem could be a speaker going out. It may not be totally blown, but may be verging.
Holding your hand out as wide as you can push against the speaker lightly. If there is a rubbing or scratching sound, the speaker could be damaged.If it moves freely, and there is no scratching its okay.
Another possibility is the clean channel may have a channel volume set to high. Make sure the clean channel volume is set lower than the master volume otherwise you can get distortion on that channel too.
Good Luck.

When setting up xr8600 is it best to start mains and monitors master at 0DB?


1. Turn the main and monitor volumes all the way down (off). Plug a cd player into channel 9/10 and play a track of music of your liking. With the main/monitor volumes still off, adjust the gain on 9/10 until the clip light turns on, then back it down until the clip light just turns off. Put the channel volume at 12 o' clock.
2. With the music still playing, turn up the mains to the desired listening level first, and then adjust the graphic eq until the music sounds good in the room. Remember or mark the position of the volume control. Do not use the channel eq on 9/10 for music that has been mastered properly, leave the eq flat. Once this step is completed then you have now set the main eq.
3. Repeat the same for monitors. Turn off the main volume and then bring up the monitor main volume to the desired level first, then set eq. Now your monitor eq is set properly. Remember or mark the position of the monitor volume.
4. Set up microphone - plug a mic into channel 1 with volume all the way down. Speak or sing into the microphone and adjust the GAIN until you see the clip light, then back down a litttle on the gain. Put the monitor and main volumes back up to the mark from step 2. Now adjust the volume and monitor send on the mic channel to the desired loudness first before adjusting the mic channel eq. Use subtractive eq method to minimize distortion and feedback. ...i.e. if the mic is bassy then turn down the lows, do not ADD highs. If the mic needs bass, turn down the highs.

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.

It has something loose on the board or where the speaker wires connect. Combo amps are really bad about doing this. The vibrations from the speakers loosen the components on the board.

I have recently bought a Berhinger PMP4000, I set it up with an SM58 through mic input 1 but can get hardly any volume ? Please can you advise where I may be going wrong ? I am running the power amp with 2...


Things to check: You are using XLR mic cables... You have the speaker switch in the uppermost position A and B mains... the mute for that channel is off... For an SM58 the TRIM for that channel will be at about 3 o'clock to near full on, depending on vocalists voice strength... The CHANNEL fader will be at around -5 to 0 (75% up)... The MAIN fader will be around 50 to 80% depending on how big a room you are in. I assume the Peaveys are on separate channels IF they are 4 ohm speakers. The A and B outputs have a MINIMUM load of 4 ohms. With 4 ohm speakers you can get 400 Watts per side... about 250 Watts with 8 ohm speakers. DO NOT SET SPEAKERS to bridged mode... ALSO please read my tip on Fixya about a hazard of channel A polarity if you use 1/4 inch plugs on the ends at the speakers. The SLEEVE of channel A is the HOT, not the tip and grounding the sleeve can blow the channel A amp.

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.

I just got this bass and am getting speaker pop at low frequencies, any ideas of what is causing this? All other frequencies sound great.


If you are driving the speaker too hard it will pop. This caused when the voice coil is driven mostly beyond the pole pieces of the magnet. Without the magnetic field the back EMF of the voice coil drops off and the current shoots up. The voice coil can't move farther so there is a discontinuity of movement which causes a pop.

200 watts is a lot to put into a 12 inch speaker so you have to be careful to not drive low frequencies at excessive volume. It is both very hard on the amp and doesn't do the speaker any good either.

If you want loud lows, you should get a subwoofer of at least 15 inch speaker to handle the lows.

Amp volume drop with flabby bass sound.


1) can happen if the speaker is dying - voice coil defective or magnet needs recharging. happens sometimes with low quality speakers. 
2) faulty pre-amp section can reduce overall gain resulting in lower output volume.
3) for old amps dry solders in pre-amp & power amp section can have the same effect.
4) faulty coupling and filter capacitors can severely effect frequency response too.
