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

1 Answer

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. .

Peavey XR 1212 You may find helpful info from the Peavey site. I'm not sure how you want to configure your setup, but the tape out may be able to feed the power amp.

Peavey 3/4/5w crossover and Peavey Compressor CEL-2A


While not familiar with this unit I beleive you are right assuming that
you need to be working with a line level signal(post preamp) not a mic
level signal
there are several ways to do this
I also do not know your board or how convoluted a layout you are willing
to go through
Most boards that people who use compressors own(for live pa) have post
preamp "insert"points
failing that you can put your mic on channel 1 and send its signal to
the comp via the aux buss(not raising the channel one fader, but instead
send the signal out the aux to the compressor, then take the out of the
compressor into channel two(which you will not send any aux singal
from) and use the channel 2 fader as your mix level
or you could route the mic to a outboard preamp then compressor then
mixer input

if you hav e subgroups the mic channel could send out a subgroup to the
comp
the only thing you do not want to do(for live pa) is place the comp
after the main mix out

I want to connect my Panasonic SL-SV570 to my car radio/tape player and have the sound come through the radio speakers. What device do I need to purchase?


You need a cable. Look for the Male RCA/stereo jack dongle/cable so you can connect the stereo jack to the discman and the RCA (male) to the back of your car stereo.

There should be 2 female RCA jacks hanging at the back of the stereo (White and Red).

My kicker zr240 powers up but its no sound coming out the amp the guts of the amp looks fine


it could be your input section on your amplifier were you rca jacks go in but you should check and make sure it aint your cd player out put on your rca jacks the easy way to check this is with a meter and a cd playing in your cd player turn your meter on volts usually your out put on rca 2.5v some cd players put out 5v so take your postive tester needle and stick it in the inside part of your rca jack and take negative tester needle and touch the outerside of the rca jacks and see if you get any reading if do that good on that part but on your amp no it could be in the input section of your amp it could be as simple as a burnt trace wire on the bottom circuit board or a op amp chip theirs alot in a amplifier but you can test them with a meter to find out witch one bad but i would take it to some one that work on amplifiers if you dont know how to test them

Does an mp3 player put out enough power for input to KAC-624 amp?


Have you connected the rca plugs to the radio or amp directly? If you've connected it to the radio make sure that the input level controls are adjusted AND available on that model (it will say AUX, INPUT, SUBWOOFER, REAR, etc.) Connecting your mp3 player directly to the amp will not have enough juice to hear sound you need to connect it to the radio first.

My powered subwoofer has RCA inputs for four jacks. (two front, two rear) My CD head also has four RCA outputs (2 front and 2 rear). Is there some advantage to connecting all of these with patch cables, or...


the advantage is every time you split a pre-amp signal, the voltage, too, divides in half. Your signal (music) is going down the river at 2 volts say, and when it gets to the amplifier, it is split into 4 streams. The signal will be distorted and the amplifier will not work as efficiently. Use the Front AND rear RCAs so your amplifier uses the best possible signal - for the best possible results!

Also, if you are using 4 RCAs you get true stereo FL FR RR RL Instead of L and R

Ive bought a Peavey 1500 pa amplifier and would like to know are the a b knobs on the front treble and bass.If they are how would I take the outputs at the back of the amp to my Soundcraft mixer.


The Peavey A/B controls are output gain controls. Your mixers stereo output goes into the amps inputs, channels A & B. The Peavey is the output stage to your speaker system. If you you connect the outputs from a power amp to the inputs of a mixer you will blow the mixers input stage, amongst many other things and possibly damage the amplifier too. The bias (Bass, Mid, Treble controls) are on the mixer, not the amplifier. Unless you are using a mixer amp, which you are not. A PA system DOES NOT work in the same way as an intergrated hi fi amp.
