When you unload one amplifier you stand the chance of killing the amp's output transistor. If you must use only one speaker, you have to bridge the amps.

SOURCE: whats the wattage of the bulb used in peavey sp2

The lamp is an "1156" lamp... replace with that part number. Here :

http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Cat=524517&k=lamp%201156

Or you can find it at auto parts store.

LIKELY the polyfuse device is ALSO gone... Probably similar to this one (1.1 amp, trip 2.2 amp):

or this one (1.85 amp, trip 3.7 amp):

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.

How do I connect a rack mount effects processor to a Peavey 8600D mixer?


  1. On the front panel you want to take a 1/4" cable and plug it into the "main" (output), and then connect it to the input of your fx unit (left is usually mono, if not it will be marked). Then take the output (corresponding to the input) of the fx unit and put it in the power amp in. The 8600D is NOT a stereo unit (this is why there is only one main output).

Peavey speakers making no sound


Try connecting them to another amplifier...you can use the speaker output of a guitar amp as a quick test. If the amp (and mixer) check OK, it sounds like you are about to become good friends with your local speaker reconing shop.

Remember...Distorted Audio Can Kill Speakers even at low volumes. It happens because sine waves become square waves. Google it for additional information.

Peavey Pr-15 fuse blown, speaker not working. What is the fuse rating


Actually its pretty funny thing with those speakers is the "fuse" is Actually called a Lamp in this case. These are what they call a " Red Dot Fuse ". in all the years i've been doing this i've never thought to look up the value haha. Just have to know there are Red Dot lamps and Blue dots and No Dot. If you examine the LAMP you should see somewhere close to the ends ON THE GLASS a color dot of some kind. almost like someone painted it on there. Red Dot Lamp. any parts distributer for people like Harbinger, Peavey, and B52 will KNOW what your talking about

The blue and red cable came loose on my peavey pr 15 neo 2 way speaker


Put the red on the + side and the blkue on the - side. SECURE the wires so that their weight does not pull them loose again. You can pop amps when speakers come loose...

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.

What kind of fuse does peavey pr15 passive use


Here is a site that has PR15 fuses... shown as a 2.1 amp. Very strange value, and it must strictly be for the tweeter portion as 2.1 amps is nothing for a speaker... I don't know that I believe this site.

If you have a Guitar Center near you, inquire there.
