I would take it to a peavey dealer that has its own tech. Most of these guys are peavey certified through a course. Finding the schematic is hard. I also think it has other circuit problems and what you found is only the result of what is bad.

Not working anymore after I plugged in I have heard some electric noise.

Wild guess but if not powering up, possible that fuse blew (if no external, then there's often one on the power board), or something blew in power supply...check for blown filter capacitors (the larger ones, for leaking, or blown/bulging tops), burnt resistor, or bad diodes.

Is there a fuse in a peavey sp2 for horns

there are 2 of them in the new ones....but ya probably the blew diaphrams...unless they are old one...then it could still be in the crossover..need to know the exact SP2 model you have, as they have changed the speaker again and again over the years.

Peavey sp5 crossover fried

well it would depend on what voltage you would want them to fire at...the poly SWITCH would trigger at the voltage you want the second series ballast resistor to kick in at, obviously you would like to have it operate at a higher voltage cause you have blown the poor thing up, the maximum power of the RX22 diaphragm is 80 watts and it is 8 ohms, so divide the 80 by 8 and then take it square rt. that will give you the max current in diaphragm..then multiply that by 8 to get it voltage across the diaphragm, which is about 25 volts, but we really need the current here as we need to understand the voltage drop across the sense circuit the kick in the next series ballast resistor to attenuate the horn....since I am to tired to get off my ass and the get the schematic out of the drawer...seem like I remember they are about 30 volts, I have about 20 in stock...

I have a peavey valvenmaster head that was playing at very low volumes even when cranked up pretty loudly. i replaced all of the tubes with new matched groove tubes and the volume and tone improved. ...

You start by downloading the schematic here:

Scroll down to the link "Get Manual" and download the schematic. Note that it has several pages of parts list preceeding the schematic.

Next, put a 150 Watt incandescent bulb in series with the power cord to act as a current limiting fuse. Now replace the fuse and proceed with testing. You may find that one or more filter caps have shorted. Also pay particular attention the the BIAS power supply. You should see about -35 to -40 volts. Note that the series lamp will come on if excess current is being drawn and voltages will be low if the lamp lights. If the BIAS supply has failed, it is possible your power tubes have been damaged.

I have the Peavey Millenium BXP 5 string bass and apparently, at my last gig, I must have plugged into the wrong cord because after that I could not get the bass volume to work. I'm not sure if I blew out...

Here is the contact info you need: Tell them the problem and they will advise you as to whether or not you will be able to repair it yourself. Without troubleshooting it myself I would guess that there is a part blown in the preamp circuit. I don't know for sure but if it involves a surface mount component the circuit board may have to be replaced if there is one.

Peavey amp shut down

The output stage has a problem. From your description, I'd guess that the high voltage supply has failed. The low volume and distortion suggests that you are trying to power the speakers from the driver section rather than the outputs. There is a resistor that fails in some of this series. If I remember correctly it is either a 2K or 3K resistor 10 watts in size. If you have no experience with repairs, I'd seek a service shop that is familiar with these units. The part runs between $5-$10.

Peavey SP 2G has a burnt ceramic capacitor in crossover

Ive been through this. Although it certainly appears to be a ceramic capacitor, its actually called a polyswitch. .65 amp. Parts express carries them. Part no. 071-256.
