Probably a fuse ? I have been servicing a lot of Peavey equipment lately and they have some poor circuit designs, a lot of internal un accessible fuses, I might be able to get more info ?

This will not be user serviceable. I suggest taking it to a Peavey authorized service center.

You have two monitor outputs, each controlled by a fader. Plug the amp(s) you will be using to power the monitors into these, connect the monitor speakers to the amp(s) and you're set up and ready

What Tascam recorder are you using? If you are multitracking you will be unlikely to be able to use this mixer. Otherwise get a phono lead to fit the tape out and suitable connections for the Tascam recorder at the other end. This will allow you to record the main mix but unless you are a solo act or putting everything through the PA this will probably be pretty useless to you.

I need a bit more information but from what i can tell it's about the power supply capacitors issue, as this devices are known to develop such kind of humming annoying noise when they go under the specified value, let me know further,

check the free air circulation in the power amp module, also check your speaker's impedance, let me know further, sorry for the late answer.

The48 volt supply is a simple rectifier/filter from the power transformer. The schematics don't even show the switch anyplace that one can find it. It appears they don't even regulate the 48 volts... Some Peavey switches are just in a hole that you have to poke something into with an alternate action button. They use these on some equipment for instance for selecting a powered mixer into L/R or Main/monitor setup. Push in with a match stick... From the manual it lloks like this is supposed to be a tiny square button... these are EASILY broken off but usually you can still actuate the switch with a little stick.

  • Hi, I can help. If your country does not support 110V @ 60 cycles or (RPM) Revolutions Per Minutes then your Peavey will not function at all.
  • Depending on your country you would need to get a step up or step down transformer which will increase or decrease the voltage and cycles to effectively run your Peavey.
  • This website list many countries outlet Voltage as well as the corresponding Hz or (Cycles Per Minute AKA revolutions Per Minute) http://electricaloutlet.org/
  • When you find your county look to the right and you will see the voltage and Hz requirements. Based on that you can tell if you need a step up or step down transformer. HINT (It will more than likely be a Step Up Transformer.)
  • As you go further to the right on that page you will see the name of the style of plug your country uses also.
  • Then all you need to do is get a Step Up Transformer that plugs into your socket that has a corresponding standard U.S.A. 110 Volt outlet on it to plug your Peavey into into.
  • These are available all over the internet.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to ask.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

There are dozens of transistors in the unit... we can't guess which you might be refering to. The power supply of the 1200 series mixers have fuse before each part of the supply for the preamp sections.

Hi. The mixer puts out a full range mix, the solution is in your speaker setup.

Many subs have a built in crossover that splits the signal for the tops. Check your sub specs or manual. If your subs have this, run your output signal to them first and then link them to the tops from the special daisychain socket.

If they don't have one, you can install a passive crossover to your subs or buy an external crossover unit.

The last (and not very good) option is to fake a crossover with the desk's stereo EQ. Connect the subs to the left or right channel and the tops to the other and use the EQ to remove the bass from the tops and vice versa, pan everything dead center. Obviously this sacrifices your stereo sound and isn't brilliant.

Sounds like a power supply failure. I think you need a service call to let a tech look at it. I googled around and couldn't find a free service manual, but if you're technical and have a 'scope, you might try that route. At $400, I'd try to get it fixed if I were you.
