Hi budprice54,
High chance that both of them was blown due to high frequency signal from the amplifier. You may confirmed it by swapping with a working one or if not available test the incoming audio from the two speaker wire connected to this speaker with a multimeter set in AC. There was a small flactuating voltages reading depends upon the beat of the sounds if the audio signal was present.
If confirmed that the speaker was already faulty, there some shop specialized in speaker rewinding, this speakers need to replace the voice coil to work again or you may replaced it with a new one.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

My Behringer pmp2000 is now only giving an output through the tweeter horns of my speakers so the sound is very tinny. Any suggestions as to what might be wrong?


Your woofers are probably blown. To check plug a 1/4 inch or speakon into the speaker cabinet with the two bare wires exposed on the opposite end and touch with a 9volt flat battery if the driver doesn't move ir sound it's blown

Peavey sp2xt speakers horn makes no sound when plugged into normal input. Horn works fine when plugged into the high side of the crossover.


High side speaker input jack defective, as they are switch also and if you plug the wire from the amp in full range and no hf sound but connecting directly to the bi-amp hi does, then your female 1/4 plug at crossover is defective for sure.

How do you remove the Speakes (HF and LF drivers, Woofer and Tweeter). The cabnit does not open. The woofer is secured from behind, requiring the cabnit to be opened to service any part of the speaker. HOW...


They used what is a called a "Miter Fold Machine" to cut the cabinet from one long piece to something you can fold up that looks like your cabinet.

The short answer is they did not mean them to be serviced. However the two methods you can use to get into it are,
1- locate the corner where the ends came together and try work them apart,

2- get a sber saw (mistakenly called jig saws these days) to cut a window in the back of the cabinet. Save the insert and attach it to larger piece that fits over the hole- you will change the tuning of the speaker slightly, but the larger panel with the cutout attached will bring the volume back close to original and the overlapping edges of the patch cover should be sealed to the cabinet. Paint them flat black like the originals and they will look better when done.

Check the crossover network for cracked solder joints, specially pay attention to the female1/4 jacks as they are very tricky since they are switches also, you might be surprised...

I need a color coded wiring diagram for a peavey PV115 speaker cabinet.


Usually the colors you will find are red and black pair and yellow and white... USUALLY the red/blk pair go to the tweeter horn with red going to the + lead of the horn drivers. Usually the yellow/white pair go to the woofer with the white going to the + lead of the woofer in Peavey speakers... HOWEVER you never know if someone has rewired the cabinet so going by colors is NOT the best way to go... This should have the "soundgard" circuit in it and the lead that goes throught the lamp and resistor that is NOT connected to the inout jack is the TWEETER + lead. The pair that connects to the inout jack DIRECTELY is the woofer leads and the TIP connection of a 1/4 inch jack is the + woofer lead. Verifying these connections is the best method.

After working great for over a year my speaker seems to only have treble with no base. Not sure what to do


This is a bi-amped speaker. That means it has a separate power amplifier driving the bass woofer and treble horn. They have a low-level electronic crossover to separate the frequencies to the appropriate speaker. The electronic crossover is the least likely to fail... so you need to do a test:
You will need to open the unit and using an ohmmeter check if the woofer speaker voice coil is open or has continuity...It should be around 6 to 16 ohms. If it is above that, the speaker itself is blown and will have to be replaced. If the speaker has continuity, then the bass amp has failed and will require repairing by person that is adept at electronic repair. Before opening the unit you MIGHT be able to diagnose whether the speaker itself is blown by seeing if the woofer generates a thump when power is turned on or off. If it does, then likely the speaker is OK and the problem is the amp, otherwise the tests above need to be done. Usually these plastic cabinets are held together with seveal scrwes from the back. Some are in :deep "wells" and will require a very long shaft phillips screwdriver... and they often are long screws that wear one out unscrewing them. A genlte pry after removing the screws will separate the back and the front.

I have a bx4500h and a ultra bass 115 cabinet. the head is fine, but the crossover? is bad in the cabinet. what can i do? can i just by pass the crossover and just use a 1/4" jack straight to the...


does the cab have a horn like the one in the photo if it does then you must think again.

you must try to get a replacement crossover or get a speaker geek to fix it for you its not so hard you can get the burnt out components fro radio shack / maplin so on. most of the blown components will show damage or smell like they are burnt because thats what they are.

the cross over plays a very important job in the fact that it filters of the top frequencies so you only get subs on the bottom 12's bass / mid on the top 12's and hi frequencies on the horn.

you will loose all the quality if you go direct and could easily blow things up especially the horn.

this speaker cab looks like a Kenny i had and when working then they are fantastic. i blow one of the sub 12's and the cross over survived so unplug the speakers and test them 1 by one with a little power from an amp and a small amp that does not matter if it gets damaged

I own jamo speakers CL 30. One of the woofers is broken. Can i find anywhere one woofer to replace it?


Best to have it reconed ! The speakers need to be matched pair.

If you are using these for music instrument(s) make sure they are intended for that use. Home stereo speakers won;t take the power that music instrument speakers are designed for by a factor of say four.

If these are mis-applied, don't waste money repairing, but buy instrument grade cabinets.
