Hi i use a peavey 6505 Amp head and when i run a seymour duncan pickup booster through the effects loop it blows the amp (possibly the pre-amp fuses) i want to get a volume boost in a distorted setting hence using this pedal, when i run it through the front it doesnt increase the volume in this mode, only in a clean mode. any suggestions what i can do to stop the head blowing ??? Regards Alan

Hi bmwz43

Odd that you keep blowing the head... and with 5 12axl preamp tubes even more surprised that you cannot get enough gain... :) Get the correct pedal for the 6505 and change yo levels that way. Hard to beat classic tube amp for tone:)

Check the the amp has the correct impedance setting for the quaddy you are using.

One more thing, what sort of cable do you have connecting the amp to the speaker box. If you use a cheapo guitar jumper lead arrangement, expect that to give you trouble AND **** tone. The 6505 has 120watts of cranked up tube output. Tube output stages need a solid at least 18 gauge cable and quality connector jacks, like Switchcraft. They can blow fuses if you don't use a decent speaker connector lead.

Get back to me here if it does it again, and check to see exactly which fuse you are replacing. It can help sort out the problem.

I have a peavey special 130 amp that has a 300 watt pre amp.I have no idea how to use it.I have had this amp for twenty years and no body can tell me.my idea is that it is for an external speaker cabinet.I...


Hi, avatar6.jpgbudfaulkner7

The 130 special was released as a Combo Amp, though I have seen quite a few taken out of the original cabinet and used in a rack system. Mine had a single 12" Scorpion speaker, I think a revised model came out in 86 (in Canada at least) that had twin 10" black widows.

Can I use the SR701 as a public address amp? Does not seem to be a labelled microphone input.


You would need a microphone preamp/mixer to connect a mic; or a pre-amplified microphone that has a Line Level output.

Whatever you do, be very careful to not have a feedback loop between the microphone and your speakers or you can kiss your tweeters goodbye.

How do I connect my Bose 901 to my Pioneer VSX-515. I have used the eq to the tape in tape out as instructions tell me to do, but do not have a "tape monitor" button on my receiver. I get sound from the...


I'm not sure that receiver is compatible with outboard EQs like the 901 EQ. This receiver is also not on Bose's 901 EQ compatibility chart, so it's possible that this is not going to work at all. You could call Pioneer and ask if this receiver is compatible with ANY outboard gear (such as EQs, compressors etc) but I don't think it is.. The tape in/ tape out I think is only for 1 source.. That's the problem with new receivers, they expect that nobody will want to connect any external gear (like back in the day) because everything is built in.

Ive bought a record deck but my hi fi has no phono input can anything be done


You will need to find a booster for it if it is a low level record player. Many new ones can plug right into the "AUX" or "TAPE" input of a stereo. The older ones would require a booster amp to be able to hear it on one of those inputs. You can go ahead and try it, it will not hurt the stereo to see if it will work or not. After you plug it into the stereo, if you can barely hear anything with the volume really loud, you need a pre-amp booster for the record player. You may need to look on ebay for one, I do not know of anyplace that sells them anymore.

I hope this helps,
Dave

Re: Peavey KB100 75 watt keyboard amplifier. Dear Sir, After having plugged into the 'PRE EQ PATCH' the main 3 inputs/channels are no longer working. I looked in the operating guide and...


The pre-eq patch connector is a 3 -wire connector designed as both an input and output in one connector. With a plug in there that only utilizes the output (send), you are not sending any signal to the amp section. That appears as no output. Take out the cable and the amp should be restored to original function. What you need to use that function is called an "insert" cable. This has a stereo 1/4" plug at the end for the "pre eq patch" side and 2 standard 1/4" plugs at the other end. One is for input into an effects box and the other is for the output from that efects box.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Have a peavey-xr-600b peavey mixer amp. i get aloud hum and noise and cracking when plugging speaker jacks.


Hi chillin884

Not a good sign. Something has gone wrong with the output stages of your Peavey. It is not a good idea to continue plugging it in as damage may occur to your speakers. I suggest you take it to a decent music gear repair guy for a look see and give you a quote to repair These heads, like all Peavey gear, are pretty solid and worth repair. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news like this, good luck

How do you hook up a Power amp to a XR8600 peavey power head to run monitors or mains


Hook the power amp into the actual main and monitor input, and then hook your main and monitor speakers into the power amp.

Crate VC6212 Amp


Yes the tube could be what is called microphonic. In other words it behaves like a mic and feeds some signal back into the amp. These are usually 12ax7 tubes and are not expensive. Start with replacing that tube.
Keep us posted.

Yes you can use the speaker output in conjuction with the rca pre-outs...but depending on the wattage of the amp, there may be a big difference between the loudness of the front speakers over the rear speakers. If you have a 4 channel amp you can put the rear speakers on the amp also and lower the input gain for the rear speaker. Or if you have a 2 channel amp, you could use a passive crossover to filter out some of the bass to the rear speakers since they are smaller, this would help prevent over-driving them...as it is normally too much bass that distorts and blows a speaker. I'm not sure what you are asking about the hi-rear preouts vs the mid front pre-outs. If you decide to use the amp for the fronts you should be able to connect the amp from the front preouts of the deck. Hope this helps.

I don't know why you'd set the Peavey to 2 ohm to drive 8 ohm speakers??? My other thought is... I wonder if the phase is correct. try reversing one of the speaker wires Left or right side.
