In Peavey cabinets, the lower woofer is always Yellow + and Blue - and the horn is always Red + and Black -. On the middle 15" the remaining two wires would be White + and Blue -

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):

http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=F2010-ND

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

SOURCE: could u please send me a circuit diagram of Peavey

Here is a link to forum that someone has posted the soundguard protection circuit down the page:

http://forums.peavey.com/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=2168&view=previous

The 1156 lamp MAY have slightly different shapes but is an automotive lamp. If the bulb is blown, the polyswitch fuse is likely blown as well.

SOURCE: I have a Peavey PV 115 Speaker...The horn works

Check the resistance across the woofer connection points. Using an ohmmeter, you should se around 6 to 8 ohms. If there is no continuity, you have a blown speaker.

SOURCE: I need a color coded

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.

No sound from peavey triflex


First, check that your source is producing sound by plugging into a different speaker set. If so, plug your source directly into each of your three speakers individually to see just where the problem is. I would suspect the crossover in the sub speaker .

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.

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 just purchased 2 old Peavey SP-2 and SP-3 speakers. How do I wire from the crossover to the speakers so the horns and 15's are wired in correct.


These cabinets are self contained and you do not use a crossover with them. The speakers do NOT come out to separate connectors. You just drive these with an amplifier. DO PAY ATTENTION to the power rating... you are safe using an amplifier with a MAXIMUM of 150 Watts RMS per speaker cabinet. More than that and running them loud and you will be replacing the speakers. These will cover a 40 foot square room at comfortable level.

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.

CAN I POWER UL15 AND XT115 [WITH CROSSOVER] WITH 1 AMP


You need 1 channel of amplifier per stack. Assuming the ul 15 is a full range box, and the XT115 is a subwoofer. But be careful with your Ohm ratings for the speakers and your power ratings of your amps. You want the proper Ohm load on the amplifier for maximum power. And use proper speaker cable, with correct wiring.

Wire the to the sub first, and then jump to the ul 15.

I have a set of peavey scorpion sp5xt's one works fine but if i plug into the other one ,in full range, only the horn works,


Horn and speaker combo cabinets have an electronic component called a "crossover". The horn and speaker both work off different electrical signal frequencies. If you can take off the back, or get inside by pulling the speaker, check for a small circuit board mounted inside the box or on the speaker or horn. Check for a broken wire or loose connection of the crimp connectors.

A common problem with speakers, often the cone, or paper part of the speaker will come un-glued or separated from the magnet "voice coil". This happens when played too loud, when it's commected to the wrong impedance, or if the signal was shorted and "overdriven" (usually sounds like an awful buzz that's really loud).

Always make sure your output impedance matches the impedance of the speaker. Most auto stereos are 4 Ohms. Older home stereos are typically 8 Ohms. Musical PA gear varies between 4, 8, and 16 Ohms. Peavey gear is typicall 4 Ohms, but some older models are different. The Ohm rating is the amount of the resistance in the circuit. If your speaker is 4 Ohms and you plug it into an 8 Ohm circuit, you can destroy the speaker and sometimes the crossover circuit board.

Good Luck.
