The answer all depends on the impedance of your speaker(s). A single speaker can be plugged into either jack. Set the switch to the impedance of your speaker. If you use two speakers, set the switch to one half of the impedance of the lowest impedance speaker. Very few speakers are 16 ohm types. Most are 8 ohms and some are 4 ohms. You could plug an 8 ohm into each of the jacks and set the switch to 4 ohms for example.

I'm running my Peavey Vypyr 15w through this cabinet with a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter and a speaker cable, and the cab is producing sound, but the volume is very low and stays the same at every setting


This is a VERY low level output designed for headphones and will not drive a cab directly, you'll need an amp, take it to line in of an amp and all should be fine (REMEMBER This is designed to drive stereo headphones so is a TRS Right,Left,Screen. If you plug it into a mono input you will probably be shorting out one side of the peavey's output so get a splitter.

In my Valveking VK100, fuse F203 is designated as 13.15AL250V Where can i obtain this fuse for repair?


This means you need a 15 ampere, 250 volt fuse, 13 is just an identifier for part replacement. You can find this fuse at any Radio Shack or other electronic store on the web. It may be a plug in type or it may have pigtails on it that will need to be soldered in to place.
Hope this helps.

My Peavey vk100 head is running through a Carvin Legacy 2x12 cab. On the clean channel there is an inconsistent popping sound. It will happen loudly for a few seconds, and then not at all for a while, and...


You may simply be overdriving the clean channel and causing it to "flat top" . See if it occurs when you back the gain down a bit. New tubes PROBABLY will not help and be a waste of money. You may be unconciously playing harder during the popping episodes. You cannot hear level variations smaller than about 3 Db BUT the electronics will sense much smaller variations. You could gently tap the tubes with a lead pencil to listen for any pops... NOTE: tubes can be slightly microphonic so some sound from tapping is normal.


Yes, a cable can be noisy and not show itself when using intentio0nal distoprtion... try another to verify it is not the problem.

I just bought a used valveking 100 half stack and the 1st channel does not work, second channel works but seems to have a loose input jack as connection is intermittent and affected by wiggling the input...


Same thing... they probably broke both jacks. Sometimes the guts of the jack is broken and it doesn't appear to be broken but is broken internally. You may find broken solder on the pins to these jacks as well.

Note that the two input jacks have a different gain.

No sound


You would NOT use a stereo cable to plug in your guitar.

The stereo cable would carry the battery voltage back to the amp and MAYBE cause the fuse to blow.

You use a MONO instrument cable for your guitar.

The ring connection is use to complete the circuit to turn on the battery in most guitars.

Replace the fuse ONCE and get the proper instrument cable (NOT consumer audio cable) for your guitar.

If fuse blows again, take amp to shop for service.
