As with any power amp. Using the volume control on the power amp can reduce the amount of noise when a signal is absent but at a reduction in headroom. This means that when the signal going into the amp exceeds the headroom your signal will distort. FOr use at low volume levels with a fairly compressed input signal you should have no problem running at less than 100% on the power amp.

How do you hook up a peavey pv14 usb mixer to non-powered speakers?


You'll need to provide an amplifier if there isn't one built into the speakers. All the mixer does is combine audio sources and provide a line-level output. A separate amplifier is needed to boost that to speaker level. If you're just using the mixer in a home setting and you have a stereo receiver or home theater system, you can feed the mixer's output to an auxiliary input on the receiver and use the speakers you have connected to that.

I don't know how to set the presets or actually any of the settings on me 684xlr peavey sound mixer. I know they can vary, But I need to know where to start....Thank You


Always best to start at the middle. You want to use music through it that you know and perhaps have heard recently at a concert. Center all the sliders and adjust them independently to create a natural sound starting with the mid range then the highs, then the lows.

Caused speakers to smoke:(


If it's the speaker cabinet itself that';s smoking, you have most likely burnt some components in the passive crossover. Pull it out and you may see melted parts or scorching on the circuit board. Peavy does repairs on it's own products pretty reasonably if there's no local tech. Call Peavey Customer Srervice at 877-732-8391.

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

All mechanical switches such as sliders and pots will get noisy after time. They get mildew and tarnish on contacts. Get a can of WD-40 and spray all switches and pots inside. You can do this by inserting the straw nozzle into slider switch slot or pot space where wires and attach. Spray briefly (short burst), then work control to both extremes of travel.

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.
