Unfortunately range and power are not correlated. Good amps have a full range, cheap ones do not....range it not related directly to power output.

What are you trying to accomplish exactly?

Can you please tell me the best amp that I can use to hook up a Roland SPD 30, I'm looking for one to get volume. ( loud ).

Hi, With my sound engineers hat on I would use a small PA. mixer, amp and speakers!!!!
For quality you need a full, flat frequency range system with good headroom.
I assume this is for your own listening, when using an acoustic kit?
There are one box solutions.
  1. Drum amps. Like a monitor wedge with an amp, Roland do a PM-10, Various other makes are available.
  2. General purpose powered wedge.
  3. Keyboard Amp, these are full range and available in various sizes.
  4. Bass amp with high frequency driver (tweeter), not the best but will have good bottom end.
  5. Powered or active speaker, much like a powered wedge, but a different shape, needs an input volume control.
All these systems need to have large bass units, 10 inch minimum, and will be in mono. Two will give you stereo,
How loud depends primarily on the sensitivity of the speaker. But manufactures insist on selling things by power. Worth looking this up.
At a couple of feet away, 20 watts should do it, with high sensitivity speakers, more likely you find most things as above start at about 70 Watts.
Good luck, I hope I have widened you choices a bit.
All the best, Chris the Fader.

How do I properly connect my peavey 118 subwoofer to my peavey 215 speakers

When asking questions please give as much detail as possible, t LEAST give the model or part numbers of the items you are asking about and anything else you will be using with them. Without this information it is impossible to answer more than general questions. However I will attempt to give an answer which could point you in the right direction below.

As you don't say which 118 and 215 you have it is impossible to give an absolute answer. Some 118s have an internal low pass crossover with two inputs in parallel, in this case you can take a connection from the amp to the sub and from the sub to the 215. Again some 215s have a high as well as a full range input so you MAY be able to use this to avoid driving full range into the 215. Some 118s have a high pass as well as a low pass in which case just connect the high out to the fullrange in on the 215. You could also possibly split the amp to use one side as a sub driver and the other for the mid/tops if the amp has a crossover.

You may also find that the wiring on the speakons on the tops needs to be different according to how you are going to use them (2+/- instead of 1+/-)

You will also need to know what impedance your amp is happy to go down to as in some combinations depending on which model 118/215s you have you could end up presenting a 2ohm load.

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.

My amp has no volume unless turned all the way up and only on the high input jack

check the "Gain" on the instrument you are plugging in ... if it is all the way down, that's the problem. If that's not it, check for a "Gain" control on the amp itself -- the is a volume control that takes care of the sound BEFORE it goes through the amp (pre-distortion etc.). Sometimes this is not with all of the other controls on the amp, so look carefully.
If it is not the gain on your instrument, and it is not the gain on the amp, then make sure you are not using too long of a wire to connect the two things. If you are using a 100ft cord to connect a guitar to an amp, there will be a lot of signal degradation in the wire, and it will be hard to get good volume from the amp since it is not getting enough signal to amplify.Try a shorter cord, and that might help ...
If all of these have failed, check the fuses on your amp. If there is a blown fuse anywhere, then your amp might not be getting the full power that it needs to produce the sound you are looking for (though a blown fuse usually cuts out ALL power through the amp, some models are built differently and this could cause your issue)
If none of these solutions work, try hooking the amp up to something else that you know works fine, to make sure it is the amp itself, not what you are hooking into it, that is not working right.
If all of this turns out to be an Epic Fail ... try speaking with customer service at the amp's manufacturer ... it might be a defect that they have seen before, and they may replace it, or at least give you a better solution that what I have done.

Fender ultra deluxe amp volume max out a number 7 volume control. will not get any louder

It is likely that the amp is flat topped at the 7 setting. When the amp is producing the maximum voltage output it is capable of, that is ALL you can get out of it... The numbers on the dial mean NOTHING and are only relative. If you have high output guitars you might find the maximum might only be 3 on the dial for example...
If you need it louder, get a bigger amp and speakers. You should ALSO get a sound meter and follow OSHA guidelines for sound exposure... I know several musicians that now are nearly deaf because of being exposed to high sound levels... their music careers are now gone as they can no longer hear well enough. You need to protect your hearing for the long term. Great musicians don't need loud, but quality and inovation in their music.

No sound in horn when plugged in bi amp connection

The question is whether or not you get any sound from the horn when in full-range. If so, then either the input jack for the horn is defective, or you are not passing the signal. A quick check would be to send the full-range signal (at low volume) to the high-freq input. You should hear the horn work. If not then the connector is defective on the crossover board.

If you get no sound from the horn in any configuration, then the coil is blown for the horn. This can be replaced. It is usually a 22a or 22ti diaphram

Let us know what you find.

Sound output is heavily distorted.

Check following things:

1. The master volume control on the SR16 is at least half way up. Turn down the amp as needed. Running very low output of the SR16 and high amp gain is sure to get distortion.

2. Check power adapter is the original and is producing correct voltage.

3. Check that audio cable is high quality instrument cable and not consumer or speaker cable.

The BOSS FDR-1 produces a popping sound when played

This is a common problem with this pedal experienced by allot of people. My best advice would be to sell it and put the money toward a real Fender tube amp and some good pickups. If you're trying to go cheap check out some Line 6 modeling stuff.

I have a peavey SP4XT Cabinet . the cross over network has a bi amp input for HF and LF jacks and these work for both LF HF output . Also on this network is two input quarter inch jacks for full range...

The chokes blocks high frequency, the capacitors block low frequency. You would need a digital multimeter to check for continuity. Make sure none of the resistor is burnt, which may not be obvious.
