If the horn cuts out after some usage ...then its probably the limiter lamp that is gone .... the limiter lamp is switched into circuit once the " polyswitch " gets hot .... so at first the horn works ...then when the limiter lamp is switched in ...nothing !
its just a standard 12volt car tail light lamp ...let me know if this helps

On my sp2x with 22xt high freq driver, actually rated bout 60 watts for the compression driver,crossover has to soak up / dissipate power over and above what is safe 4 comp driver,that said,I just blew both 15" woofers trying bi-amping,running 120wpc 8 ohm amp bout 3/4 power to horns-ok.500wpc 8 ohm to woofer,smelly burnt voice coils.That was an xpensive arvo.

Peavey xt22 horn not working


Across the diaphram you should be reading about 8 ohms. it sounds to me like it's blown.However,if you think it'ds thre crossove, take it out and send it to Peavey. They do good , fastwork.............................................................

Peavey SP3 (older model) Can not get any sound thru horn.


They have a "soundgard" protection network that uses a polyfuse and an automotive lamp. Open the unit and check the circuitry. Both the polyfuse and he lamp may be blown. Do ohmmeter check of these, otherwise the horn is blown.

Peavey Horn Drivers (compression drivers)


Did you sort your problem? I need 2 also, but seems quite easy to get 4ohm but 8 ohm a little harder. The woofer in the cab is 4ohm, cabinet is rated 4ohm so wondering wether to replace th 8ohm horn with a 4ohm diaphram.
Any thoughts?
Thanks.

I have a set of peavey scorpion sp5xt's one works fine but if i plug into the other one ,in full range, only the horn works,


Horn and speaker combo cabinets have an electronic component called a "crossover". The horn and speaker both work off different electrical signal frequencies. If you can take off the back, or get inside by pulling the speaker, check for a small circuit board mounted inside the box or on the speaker or horn. Check for a broken wire or loose connection of the crimp connectors.

A common problem with speakers, often the cone, or paper part of the speaker will come un-glued or separated from the magnet "voice coil". This happens when played too loud, when it's commected to the wrong impedance, or if the signal was shorted and "overdriven" (usually sounds like an awful buzz that's really loud).

Always make sure your output impedance matches the impedance of the speaker. Most auto stereos are 4 Ohms. Older home stereos are typically 8 Ohms. Musical PA gear varies between 4, 8, and 16 Ohms. Peavey gear is typicall 4 Ohms, but some older models are different. The Ohm rating is the amount of the resistance in the circuit. If your speaker is 4 Ohms and you plug it into an 8 Ohm circuit, you can destroy the speaker and sometimes the crossover circuit board.

Good Luck.

Yes a horn can get blown. This should be 2 pieces, the horn itself and a circular driver on the rear. The driver itself will have what is called a diaphragm that can be removed and replaced. That is the part you want. Open up the speaker and get the part number off of the back of the horn and order the diaphragm from Peavey.

Hi, I need to replace the baskets on my peavey impulse 200 speakers. The baskets currently in them are 1268MR BW... (12 inch black widow) I am wondering if I can use differant baskets, due to the fact I'm...


Hi dieselbob25

Whats happening to the 1268? Oh and I couldnt find that model in the standard range available to the public at the peavey sites I checked here and Peavey


They may be a special edition for the Impulse boxes. Can you tell me what is happening to the speakers? Are they burning voice coils or what. May indicate another area of concern that is making them fail.
