    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 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.

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,

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.

In order to give you details for connecting the speakers I need to know:
Each speaker details (nominal impedance and handling power).
Since the Behringer 2400 is a discounted model (or misspelled model), the lowest output impedance that this amplifier can handle.
Is there any possibility to plug both the cabinets at the same amplifier?

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.
