I have 2 peavey floor monitor speakers Model-112HS BW. My issue is the volume control: It is either a short or the potentiometer is bad. You have to turn the volume control numerous times, and/or tap the knob to make a connection to get the audio to come thru. I have opened the speaker volume control from the speaker and even sprayed electronic contact cleaner on as well. My question is? Is there replacement parts that I can order to correct this. Or can I just bypass the volume control all together and just control it directly out of the amplifiers master volume?

simple !! most peavey mixers have a monitor output !! you can use that to feed new amp , and theres your volume too !!! or if your already using the monitor output , you can buy a split cable (1 in 2 outs) for main send !! this cable would have to be kept short or it will induce HUMMM !! and in real extreme cases if your using a low Z send (cant think as to why ) a device known as a (direct box) normally used by instrument sends can be used in reverse to "tap" into a low Z send and output with a unbalanced send for an amp to your other room , but hey why not just add a speaker with a volume control to it for this smaller room ? and forgo the new amp
Anything I tell you is going to be a guess, since there has been no testing done, and we don't have the model number of the specific radio involved. However...
For a 20 year old radio, the volume and balance is almost certainly controlled by a potentiometer that has input into one leg of the fixed resistance, and the other leg (of the fixed resistance) is grounded. The movable center tap is the output to the amplifier - and its position controls the volume to that channel. If the ground leg becomes disconnected (broken wire, or a cold solder joint, or even a break in the resistor within the body of the potentiometer) then instead of "dividing" the volume, it simply provides a slight resistance inline - short answer: It goes full volume.
You can try running the control full range back and forth, and even just the old time "slap it" approach, to see if you get any static or change. If you do, that pretty well confirms the diagnosis. [If not, it just means the break is not close to touching - still almost certainly the right answer though.]
Only fix is going to be disassembly. You then may be able to find the break (and resolder it), and/or replace the volume potentiometer. Note that if you have remote volume/balance control (controls on the steering wheel), then there is some extra wiring that can likewise be involved. jk
This could be one of a variety of problems:
1. Bad speaker
2. No receive
3. You are on an unprogrammed channel
4. You have a bad volume potentiometer (dead spot in the on/off/vol)
5. Another internal issue
Try going to monitor mode and see if you can hear the white noise typical of being on monitor. If not, you could have problem 1, 2 or 4.
Try adjusting the volume and see if the radio works at a different volume level. If so, you have a problem with the volume pot.
. your issue is possible due to a bad volume control or a separated conductor wire at the connector to the sound card. You may have to buy a new speaker assembly or if you are adept at soldering or can disassemble the speaker assembly you can replace the resistor potentiometer/ volume control with a new suitable resistor from Radio shack or your favorite electronics store that supplies these parts. Usually a new speaker assembly is warranted.
Hello Sir, Hi, distorted sound can be caused by several factors, one would be that the source, overdrives the power amps. You need to lessen the signal, if the source has a volume control set it to half. Another is the power amp itself is defective, The likely culprit it the Integrated power amp. this should be checked by a technician. and lastly the loudspeakers, to test just simply swap the other channel driver unit to the questionable one. check If the sound returns to normal. Several factors also are low voltage supply, leaking capacitors. there are no user serviceable parts here.
It sounds as though you are pointing the peavey at the band in a practice situation? If so make sure that each speaker is at about 60 degree angle to either side of the back of the mike (you facing the speakers), most mics reject feedback when the the user is directly in front of a monitor, but Beta 58s' tend to feedback more in that situation. Alternatively (if it is a practice room situation), why not place the speakers behind the band at 60 degrees each and turn to face the band.
