    cheers dan for that i was going to email peavey direct but still awaiting an update from the dj shop in nottingham. i took the speaker back yesterday they said dont worry sort it out one guy was helpful. but whilst i was shopping within half hour one of the guys from shop and said id damaged the drivers and as i have seen this guy and he is just a rep and i suspect hes not electrical minded he tried the techky jargon with me, not knowing that i am maybe more electrical minded than him told me hes had it on bench and i have damaged them he wants 100.00 pound for repair, i said hold on a minute and then he started stutter over phone and so awaiting a follow up call soon

    my girlfriend said i think they are trying to pull a fast one.and as i said before they never been or even had to be turned up fully as at the ten to position it was adequate and ear popping anyway they are good overall speakers no one needs to over do it .thanks dan cheers for taking time out were you at uk or further a field ?

    cheers dan thanks for your help in this matter i will await a call from dj dealer , and well ive made a draft message ready to send to peavey direct if they mess me about at the dj store. i think its easy to say they always suspect that im the blame, but like i was happy with the quality. so they wasnt needed to be pushed,

    to the max.in fact at one gig a very large room i was surprised of how clear and loud they were just having both amp dials at 10 11 oclock position . one party guest even said that they were loud enough at that level , anyway ta for the replies etc , i let you know outcome cheers tek care dude mark from nottingham england music on the move roadshow

In that case, you have a valid argument for a defect that has pre-maturely fried you speakers. You will need to talk to a manufacturer's rep about this. The local store will not have the authority to change the decision. Unfortunately because of the way the warranty stuff works, the local servicer's hands are tied a bit. You need to speak directly with the manufacturer.

Keep us posted.

    I am based in the US. I have had Peavey gear for close to 30 years and can say from personal experience both as a user and servicer, that this gear holds up well even to abuse. With the info you have provided, I think you got a defective speaker. Obviously, without seeing the actual driver, I can't state for sure, but knowing the manufacturer's history, I'm leaning to a manufacturing defect.



    Keep us posted.

I need 4 ohm speakers for my Warrior IS600 Amplifier


It is rated as a dual 300 watt amplifier, shich strongly suggests a Class D peak value for each amplifier.

In theory- 100 watt RMS 4 ohm speakers should be adequate.

My C355Bee amplifier will not switch on. The power light stays on orange and won't switch to green.


This is usually called "protect mode". See the link below for an explanation. If the unit remains in this condition even after disconnecting all speaker wires, it likely will require service. Please update this if you need further information.

Thanks,
Dan

I bought a mixer with this model "Behringer XENYX 1204USB 12 Ch USB Mixer". And i'm planning to have a set-up of 2 electric-acoustic guitars and 3 microphone vocals. What would be the best wattage of...


Hello Sir, Hi, the amplifier best suited for it would be a Behringer also, the EP2500 would be a match, and the eurolive B815neo speakers, but this cost a lot, any amplifier and a corresponding speaker will do. for your electric guitars or acoustics the GTX30. If you will use your 15" speakers, match it with a right amplifier, you did not mention its watts rating, If your speakers are 250 watts, then buy an amplifier slightly higher that 250 watt,

Pioneer SA100 integrated - low, distorted output


At this point, I would be looking at the main power suply for the final output stage. You may be attempting to drive the output with the driver section rather than the final amp stage. The center pin of the output transistors should have B+/B- on them. Measure that to ground and report the value here.

Intermittent drop out on Yamaha CA amplifier


The output speaker relay is corroded a bit. The higher volume creates enough voltage to bridge the gap and make a good connection again. Some of these relays are sealed and can not be cleaned. The relay should cost around $10-$15 max.

Should i go through the crossover built in and


I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish here, but there are 2 types of crossovers. One is designed to handle full speaker power and is built into the speaker cabinet, the other is designed to split the frequencies PRIOR to amplification. Can you better describe what you are trying to do and the equipmetn you intend to use? That will allow me to detail the setup for you.

Thanks,
Dan

Amp Turns off after 30 seconds of song play


Since the unit recovers once it has powered down. I suspect that the internal protection circuit is kicking in. Check the wiring and be sure that there are no crossed wires anywhere. These amps are designed to work with 2 ohm loads and can take a direct short for a short period of time. If the wires appear ok, measure the speakers with an ohm meter. If the speakers are 4 ohm rated, they should measure just under 3 ohms with the meter, If they measure less than 2 ohms, there is a problem with the speakers.

Also, does the amp shutdown regardless of the volume level or just when played loud?

Thanks,
Dan

This is not a reset. Most likely one or more transistors have shorted and need to be replaced. Does the front display come on OK?
