Make sure it is the speaker. Plug a different speaker in first. This is the one step we failed to do when both of our sp5 speakers - low end disappeared at the exact same time. We had to finish the show with one powered speaker. We thought it was our powered mixer or our separate amp.

What sort of amp are you driving these with?
is the amp set up with buit in x-overs?
check these settings?
Boxs should be configured already for full range from manufacture unless they have been altered since purchase,

Whats really funny is that your getting either tops or bottoms from them but not both at the same time......hmmmm
they are supposed to be full range cabinets,very good ones at that.
I suspect the amp is either faulty or x-overs are poked.
some times leads are a also the blame too.poor connections,etc.
if x-over is poked you will hear an ear peircing noise and a paper duding noise if the cones were gone,like a giant transistor radio with no bass and a very high pitched trebble burning a hole in your head,

Ok heres a cheap test,

Take the speakers to another amp and test them,
If same result then you know the answer

Let me know the results thanks

    Just a thought,Have they always done this???

    If so they may have an internal x-over problem,

    A speaker is a speaker,some handle more power than others,

    but they all work along the same principles,noise making,lol

    if they are full range then they will have the x-over right next to the speaker cone itself,

    probably mounted on a board ,and,

    quite posibly fused to protect the components as well,

    Check the fuse.(if there is one)

    The x-over has components doing different jobs all at the same time.Bass,Mids.Trebbles,coils and capacitors.





    You got lucky enough to have just blown the x-over (hopefully)

    and not the complete speaker, Have it checked by Technician.



    Let us know your outcome thanks

I have a pair of peavey sp-2xt speakers if i use the full range input the horn would not work but if i plug it direct to the hi input it works .any sugestions to fix problem thanks


There is possibly a bad solder connection or component on the crossover. I cant remember if that crossover uses a 12volt light bulb or not, for DC current protection, if it does make sure the bulb is good.

Does anyone know how i should hook up a pair of peavey sp118 Bxsubs with a pair of peavey pr15 tops and the behringer inuke nu6000 please help


You will require 4 heavy gauge 1/4" speaker cables in order to connect all 4 cabinets to the Behringer power amp. Usually two longer ones from the power amp to the sub woofer cabs. Then two short ones from the second "thru" jack to the upper 15" cabs. Remember the entire audio frequency range is going to all four speakers. Sometimes you will have problems balancing the low frequency levels between all four cabs depending on the loading of each. A more desirable way to do this is with a bi-amped arrangement. This way two seprate amps are used for the subs and 15" cabs and you control them independantly.

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.

Peavey SP 5 speaker has stopped working


Check the crossover network for cracked solder joints, specially pay attention to the female1/4 jacks as they are very tricky since they are switches also, you might be surprised...

I have 2 peavey sp 5 and a pwavey 2600 amp . i wanna know can i hook a peavey 118 passive sub to one of the sp5 and how would it sound?


You would send high as well as low to the sub and unless the sub had a built in crossover it COULD get muddy sounding. The specs SEEM to indicate the 118 DOES have a low frequency crossover so it SHOULD be OK... How would it sound? An 18 inch sub normally adds to the sound of a system... You MAY need to PAN over to send more power to the one side with the extra load on one side. Often people use two sub's... one for each side so it is balanced.

I have one Peavey SP5 that suddenyl lost the Woofer end. Horn still spits out but absolutly NOTHING at all from the Bottom 13". I swapped out fuses adn same problem, I switched outputs on the amp, same...


If you have a pair, swap the woofers. If the other one works in the cabinet, then it's definitely the speaker. If it doesn't, then you've likely got a problem with the crossover inside the unit. I believe you can get a replacement crossover from Peavey. If it's the speaker, google speaker re-coning in your area, as it's cheaper to re-cone the speaker than replace it.

Peavey SP5


depends who assembled the speakers as to wheather or not there is any fuse proetection installed.
The drivers are probably gone from the highs because of overloading power surge on the same circuit as the cash register,
or
the crossover is failed.

Cheap fix is replace crossover
expensive fix replace cones of speaker

Best long term protection is to split up the power loading on the stage and surge/spike guard power boards for staging equipment & have resettable fuses installed at the crossobvers or the respective speaker connections.

1.FUSES ARE PROTECTION<
2.THEY BLOW FOR A REASON<
