Peavey Mark III Bass Combo Amp My low-end started coming in and out and then just left for good. Did I blow the speaker or just short something? If I want to fix this thing, how do I do it? I don't even know how to get inside.

To get the speaker out, pull the frame with the grill cloth out of the amp by prying it out from any side, top or bottom. The grill frame is only held in with plastic velcro-like stuff. Once it's out, the speaker is bolted into the cabinet from the outside. Just unscrew the bolts holding it in, and lift the speaker out.

For removing the amp chassis, unscrew the bolts on the chrome plated strips on the top of the amp at the end of the right and left sides. The chassis should slide out the back. You may need to pull the speaker wires off the speaker, or pull the connector that hooks up the the chassis from the underside, which means you need to take out the speaker first.

Contact Peavey for the diodes and any other electronic components you need.

Peavey tnt 115 blowing fuses


your either overloading something cause that's what pops fuses. My guess is that what your plugging in or into has a ground issue. I'm wondering if it does it with nothing plugged in at all. I would say if you have nothing in and it does it, you need to find where the ground issue is. that's my best guess

Check speaker impedance or disconnect speaker leads, then use a 9V battery to verify cone movement and if this test is ok, then go inside the amp, if there's no fuses blown check opamps supply voltage which should be -15V at pin-4 and +15V at pin-8, let me know your results to help improvement.

Peavey decade manual


Recommend an Ashdown or Fender with a 15" speaker, they will give a good sound, are gig-worthy, and will last. I use a Behringher 120W for rehearsal work, it only has a 12" speaker and thus cannot give a good 'presence', also I have been reliably informed, a lot of custom chips are used in thier amps.
Don't forget, a bass 'E' goes down to something like 60Hz, and a good speaker and amp are a must for bass work

No low end from speaker. Sparks came out of backplate when switching the plug from jacks. Now the horns are only thing that works


If you failed to turn off the amp before changing speaker cables you have fried something. Since the plug shorts when unplugging, if the amplifier were on, the amp would sense the short and will often fry the amplifier or the speaker. You don't mention what the amplifier was. If the speaker were daisy chained to other equipment a ground loop probably formed and blew out the woofer. The horn often has Peavey's "SoundGard" circuit so it probably survived. NEVER change speaker cables while amp is on. ALWAYS secure the 1/4 inch type cables through the handle of cabinets so they can'tbe inadvertenly pulled out and burn up equipment. Your amplifier driving one of these should be rated at no more than 200 watts RMS. These "400 watt Prrogram" ratings are for the birds... fake advertising. Put 400 watts into this RMS and it blows out.

How do I go about disassembling my peavey 6150+112 combo guitar amp to the point where I can replace the 12" driiver for a better one.


Most Peavey speakers you will have to just remove the grille in front of the speaker. These usually are held by Velcro like fasteners that you must carefully pry the grille out. That will give you access too the screws holding the speaker rim. Be aware that there are different sizes of speaker rims and mountings for the "same" listed size speaker. Also use the same impedance speaker as the original one or you MAY find you have less power OR blow your amp out.

I was playing then all the sudden it sounded like it shorted out. The power is still on and the tubes fire up but the "STANDBUY" switch isn't lighting up when in on position. Please help.


The speaker is blown. Did it smell a little funny when this happened. Sometimes they get a faint burning smell when they blow. Some Peavey amps especially older ones are known for letting DC current slip through to the speaker and blows it immediately. Most of the rest of the amp deals with that pretty well so I'm not quite sure what going on with the standby switch. Probably just a blown bulb.

The amp has a failure. One side of the power amp is starting to draw excessive current to the point that the filter caps can't sustain the current so the ripple starts to be heard in the speaker. Continued use MAY burn up the speaker by sending DC through it as well as causing additional damage to circuit boards, etc..

Peavey amp shut down


The output stage has a problem. From your description, I'd guess that the high voltage supply has failed. The low volume and distortion suggests that you are trying to power the speakers from the driver section rather than the outputs. There is a resistor that fails in some of this series. If I remember correctly it is either a 2K or 3K resistor 10 watts in size. If you have no experience with repairs, I'd seek a service shop that is familiar with these units. The part runs between $5-$10.

Bass amp settings


For rock and slapping you are going to want to set the Bass and Treble controls high and the Mids low. For music such as Jazz you are going to want more mids so that your sound will be fatter. If there is a button marked "Mid-Scoop" you'll want that on when slapping.
