I've got Peavey SP2's and SP4XT's and they have one common problem. The 22XT Driver needs replacing from time to time. It could be a power spike, overdriving from amp, over heating or dirt/water in horn. The driver is very easy to replace and costs about $40.00. Remove the horn, carefully lift the horn and disconnect black and red wires. Remember red is always +. Remove driver from horn with socket wrench or socket screwdriver, clean the circular gap on horn with masking tape to remove dirt, hand tighten driver screws, connect red and black wires, carefully set horn back in SP2 enclosure and slowly bring up the power. Also be sure to be very careful when setting the new driver/ coil in the horn. You don't want to damage the coils on the new driver at all!

Remove the horn from the speaker box. Check all of the wires leading to the speakers. Use an ohm meter to check if the connections are good. If all is well in that area the speakers may be blown

I have 2 peavey sp2 bx well I was pushing them really hard and blew the black widows. Now I have got a replacement and hooked it up and still no sound out of them. I do have the horns working but they...


The lamp bulb fusing is just on the horns. Check the Black Widows individually with an ohm meter for continuity. If the speakers themselves test OK, you most likely blew the crossovers. Peavey service (877-732-8391) can rebuild most of therir crossovers in house and they generally are cheaper to fix than replace.

Peavey sp2xt speakers horn makes no sound when plugged into normal input. Horn works fine when plugged into the high side of the crossover.


High side speaker input jack defective, as they are switch also and if you plug the wire from the amp in full range and no hf sound but connecting directly to the bi-amp hi does, then your female 1/4 plug at crossover is defective for sure.

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.
