Just because the power ratings are close does not mean that you can't overdrive the speakers. If the amp was at max and you really pushed it, the amp could have generated distortion. It is the distortion that usually causes a speaker to fry. Warranties only cover manufacturing defects. If the speaker looks like it was overdriven, that is not a manufacturing defect. It would be considered customer damage. This is an issue that you should take up with a manager if you feel it is a warranty issue.

Good luck.

I have a Peavey 8600D can I safely run 1 main


When you unload one amplifier you stand the chance of killing the amp's output transistor. If you must use only one speaker, you have to bridge the amps.

Peavey speakers making no sound


Try connecting them to another amplifier...you can use the speaker output of a guitar amp as a quick test. If the amp (and mixer) check OK, it sounds like you are about to become good friends with your local speaker reconing shop.

Remember...Distorted Audio Can Kill Speakers even at low volumes. It happens because sine waves become square waves. Google it for additional information.

On my peavey pro 15 neo speakers i don't know which wire is for what. What is the black, red, blue and yellow wires for?


black and red will goto 1 speaker. and blue/yellow to the other. typically red and yellow are + and black and blue are -. the crossover board might tell you which is which where they solder to it. but i'm pretty sure the black/red goto woofer. try hooking up both to woofer and listen to it. 1 way is going to sound horribly wrong lol. that will mean you hooked up the tweeter leads to the woofer. but DO NOT HOOK UP WOOFER LEADS TO TWEETER. thats why i say to do it on woofer.

Peavey Pr-15 fuse blown, speaker not working. What is the fuse rating


Actually its pretty funny thing with those speakers is the "fuse" is Actually called a Lamp in this case. These are what they call a " Red Dot Fuse ". in all the years i've been doing this i've never thought to look up the value haha. Just have to know there are Red Dot lamps and Blue dots and No Dot. If you examine the LAMP you should see somewhere close to the ends ON THE GLASS a color dot of some kind. almost like someone painted it on there. Red Dot Lamp. any parts distributer for people like Harbinger, Peavey, and B52 will KNOW what your talking about

The blue and red cable came loose on my peavey pr 15 neo 2 way speaker


Put the red on the + side and the blkue on the - side. SECURE the wires so that their weight does not pull them loose again. You can pop amps when speakers come loose...

What kind of fuse does peavey pr15 passive use


Here is a site that has PR15 fuses... shown as a 2.1 amp. Very strange value, and it must strictly be for the tweeter portion as 2.1 amps is nothing for a speaker... I don't know that I believe this site.

If you have a Guitar Center near you, inquire there.
