Disconnect the leads from the 12". Put a voltmeter across the speaker terminals and check for continuity. If it reads open, the speaker is dead.

Question about Peavey Escort 3000 300 watt portable PA, both right and left mains work fine, but the right speaker has distortion sound. Even if I change speakers the right out speaker circuit is dist


sounds like an internal connection problem. open access panel and check the solder connection is not broken or loose. Be sure the metal mesh jacket is not touching the lead wire as that would cause a scratchy noise and feedback, or maybe near the internal cable causing feedback

I assume you mean the Pr-12RX passive? That seems wrong to me, too. Put an ohm meter across the terminals of the horn driver and the woofer seperatly to see which, if either, is blown. If they're OK, look for a bad solder joint on the crossover.

Peavey xt22 horn not working


Across the diaphram you should be reading about 8 ohms. it sounds to me like it's blown.However,if you think it'ds thre crossove, take it out and send it to Peavey. They do good , fastwork.............................................................

I have a two way peavey p115 speaker system and audio has stopped coming out of the high frequency driver . I tested the high frequency driver with a multi meter and it is fines.I also have a working...


Testing the driver with an ohmmeter is incomplete test. Sometimes the magnets break off the drivers rendering no sound. Sometimes the voice coil shorts and if you don't interpret the ohmmeter readings correctly you can overlook a faulty driver. Remove the horn and look for damage such as lost magnet from the back. Also the peavey cabs have a protection circuit so if you did not try another speaker to the same wores going to the driver, it may be the Polyfuse on the protection circuit or other components.

Peavey minx 110 no sound from main speaker but headphone jack is ok. speaker wires are attached ok.everything on the board appears to be in good shape.amp powers up and all controls work great through...


Inside the headphone jack is a built in switching mechanism. It is there to cut off the sound to the speaker when you are using headphones to practice quietly. For some reason or another it seems as if this is no longer working correctly. One of the causes of this can be bad solder joints on the circuit board where this jack is located. Another cause is a failure of the jack itself. If you are capable, Take the circuit board out and have a look. Hope this helps.

Peavey PR15-D Powered speakers, Power on but no sound.


Check for impedance ( resistance) in ohms on the speakers disconnected from the circuit using a volt/ohm meter. I think the woofers are 8 ohms and the tweeters are 8 ohms. Also check for bad solder joints where the jacks are soldered to the circuit boards.

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.
