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

Hello there i have a mackie srm 450 speaker system and im not getting any high end tweeter sounds just bass only what coule be the problem manay thanks Paulie


The most common cause of this is a blown horn. A replacement can be ordered from Mackie directly. Remove the screws that hold the plastic horn in place. At the rear of this part will be the tweeter assembly that unscrews from the horn. This needs to be replaced.

Another possibility is that the tweeter driver has broken from the horn itself and is inside the cabinet. Remove the horn and you may find that the aluminum part has broken. Replace the horn which comes with that part and you should be fine.

I have peavey speakers Model #112H.Both horns went out,,i'm not sure what caused this. is there a component that i can replace,or just replace the horns completely?


If they are seperate speakers and both "horns" have gone it won't be a part common to both. The most common way of blowing both speakers is to have the amp too loud. The real cause is often connecting a high powered amp to low powered speakers.
As you will have to replace the horns if they have blown, disconect them from the circuit and apply a 1.5 volt battery to the terminals for a split second. (+to+ etc) It should 'pop' if it works. If it does it will be the crossover that has gone.

I HAVE THE MTX TP112 SPEAKER, THE HORN TWEETER STOPPED WORKING. CAN I GET A NEW HORN OR THE TWEETER ATTACHED TO THE HORN ALONE? I CAN'T FIND


It is a one piece horn need to replace the whole thing. These are not like normal PA speakers where the driver can be unscrewed from the horn lens and replaced.

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 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.

Horns don't work on sp2 speakers


I've got Peavey SP2's and SP4XT's and they have one common problem. The 22XT Driver needs replacing from time to time. It could be a power spike, overdriving from amp, over heating or dirt/water in horn. The driver is very easy to replace and costs about $40.00. Remove the horn, carefully lift the horn and disconnect black and red wires. Remember red is always +. Remove driver from horn with socket wrench or socket screwdriver, clean the circular gap on horn with masking tape to remove dirt, hand tighten driver screws, connect red and black wires, carefully set horn back in SP2 enclosure and slowly bring up the power. Also be sure to be very careful when setting the new driver/ coil in the horn. You don't want to damage the coils on the new driver at all!

first you need a multimeter set to OHM , check on the back of the horn , remove the leads and do some reading , it should read 4 , 8 , 16 ohms depending of the brand , if you get no reading its means that need to be replaced , some horns you can detach the back (magnet w/the coil ) so you can replace it without buying the whole unit . good luck
