PEAVEY djs4 speaker QUESTION

HI I AM A MOBILE DJ ONE OF THE HIGH FREQUENCY HORNS IS OUT ON MY DJ S 4 SPEAKERS. THEY ARE ABOUT 3 YEARS OLD. THE HORN IS MAKING NO NOISE AT ALL. JUST CURIOUS IF THERE MAY BE A WIRE LOOSE. IF A SPEAKER IS BLOWN WONT IT MAKE NOISE LIKE DISTORTION OR HISS?

If a speaker is "blown", there is normally an open-circuit in the voice coil, therefore it emits no sound at all. Can't discount a loose wire, but blown HF drivers are very common.

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 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.

Titanium high frequency drivers not working. Is there a fuse in crossover?


i) I believe you can access the fuse by removing the Input Jack Panel.

ii) If fuse is OK, then unscrew the horn unit, take off one speaker wire & measure resistance. If it is open circuit then you can order a replacement horn diaphragm (if you feel confident to fit it to the horn).

Horns don't work on sp2 speakers


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!

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.

Peavey impulse 1015 horn cuts in and out


If the horn cuts out after some usage ...then its probably the limiter lamp that is gone .... the limiter lamp is switched into circuit once the " polyswitch " gets hot .... so at first the horn works ...then when the limiter lamp is switched in ...nothing !
its just a standard 12volt car tail light lamp ...let me know if this helps
