Question about Peavey AMPLIFIER, 1000 WPC, DDT, 8/4/2 OHMS => Model PV2000 Car Audio Amplifier

Connecting cd player to mixer

I ran a rca cable  to 1/4 jack from my cd player to the 1/4 input on  the front of my peavey xr 8600 mixer. It sounds like your in a tunnel, or the vocals have been turned off. I can unplug the red channel and it sounds better. I ran the same set up on an older peavey mixer and didn't have this problem. Can you tell me what is happening and how to fix it.

This should work. I use a similar setup for break music at small gigs. I would check the cable and the output of the unit itself again. .

I only have a vintage Peavey XR600B and I want to connect and ipod and ipad up to it so I can play music. Can I do this or do I need special cables?


Sure you can, but that mixer amp is a mono amp instead of stereo. Head for radio shack and get an 1/8" stereo male phone jack to 1/4" female mono adaptor. Plug the adaper into the headphone output of your device. Then run a shielded cable with 1/4" mono phone plugs on both ends (like an electric guitar would use) from the device to one of the channels on the Peavey. Bring the volume up on both the channel and master on the amp up maybe 1/3 the way. Play a track on your device and adjust the devices out put as high as it will go with out distorting the channel input. Then adjust the amp's channel and main output as you would normally to get the final volume you need.

Hello, I am new to forums, this is my first time. I have a Peavey 696f power mixer, last night the left speaker channel stopped working, what do you think is causing this problem?


the pa1 or the pa2 input jack on the front of the unit is dirty, or you have a cracked solder somewhere, as these units are gettting old.

How do i hook a peavey fx24 mixer to a Peavey xr8600 with out going through the 8600's mixer? I am wanting to use the 8600 to power my mains and use another amp to power my monitors. can i do this?


You CAN drive the power amps from the main amp inout jacks BUT the rest of the inout of the 8600 would be dead then. You can connect the L and R from the FX24 to either the media RCA jacks or into the channel9/10 jacks. FOr the latter, use TRS cables. Leave the two selection buttons in the up position.

Iis ALL your equipment powered from the same receptacle? It had better be... ground bounce can destroy input circuits in these units. I don't have the schematic but a common problem where XLR connectors go into a mixer is they have radio-frequency noise suppression caps to ground from each side of the XLR input. These caps are often lower voltage rating and can be popped by ground bounce or ungrounded equipment being connected before the ground connection is made. When one goes, there is loss of half the voltage or 6 Db of power gain. Since these RCA's are right at the XLR they MAY connect and have these caps and one may have shorted. That means the repair shop I am afraid unless you are adept at electronics. Most of these mixers are a pain to work on that area as all the knobs and screws have to come out/off to get the circuit board away from the panel to work on... I wish I had the service manual to give you more info...

PLEASE in the future power all equipment from the same receptacle or power source AND for units that don't have three wire power cord, NEVER change cables that can break the ground connection such as the RCA cables while power is on to any of the equipment. This will save repair bills...

This is from your friendly electrical engineer that works with this stuff and repairs his own...

I have the peavey xr 8600 and i wanna know how to connect an additional non powerd mixer to it ( i wanna use the peavey as an amp??


That's easily done. Simply connect the left(or right) output of your mixer to one of the channels on the peavey. Use any line input. Since the peavey is a mono system, there's no need sending a stereo mix to it.

I Have a Peavey XR 600B mixer. There are only 2 inputs in the rear for speakers. I want to add more speakers to be used as monitors or just have extra speakers. How can this be done? I only have...


First off it's outputs to your speakers. If you had an extra set of powered or amplified speakers you could "Y" cable your speaker outputs. Your passive speakers won't work without an amp. You really need powered speakers or an amp for your extra speakers. (if you had powered/amp'd speakers you could run them off one of you "aux" out for monitors. Do not daisy chain your speakers connecting twi together, you'll change the resistance/ohms and damage your speakers. Trust me, I do this for a living.

How do i connect 2 monitors to the one monitor output jack on the peavey xr 600c mixer..cheers My product not quite the one as listed from your product database but may be similar


The monitors will have to be POWERED monitors with built in amps.

You can simply use a wye splitter cable to drive the two monitors. Run the cable from the mixer to one monitor and put a wye cable and an extention to the second powered monitor speaker.
