Question about Peavey Music
The speaker is a marshall 1960a
On the back of your 6505 there are two jacks that are labeled speaker outputs. For mono function, use either one of those outputs and run a SPEAKER cable from your amp to one of the input jacks of your 1960a cabinet. I assume it is a 4X12 cabinet. Either input will work. Make sure you match the ohm selector on your 6505 (right next to the output jack, 4/8/or 16 ohms) to the ohm rating on your 1960 cabinet. It is likely labeled on the plate that houses the input jacks. You should be good to go. NOTE: Never turn your amp on unless it is hooked up to a speaker cabinet and never use instrument cable to hook your amp to your speaker cabinet. Bad for a nice tube amp like yours.
Rock on and hope it helps.

From behind the amp there shouls only be a couple os screws that hold that fron panel on, once removed you can take it off to work on it, you can get the same material from a good music store or even some type of fabric store or craft store.

You can, however a bass speaker cabinet will NOT handle the higher pitch sounds needed for cymbals and snares, etc. You would connect it to the return AND doing so would DISABLE the other inputs of the bass speaker cabinet.
If you want both a guitar and drum machine into the cabinet, you need at least a small mixer or a speaker cabinet that can take two channels input simultaneously.
Plugging into the "return" of the cabinet DISCONNECTS the power amp from the preamp section in the cabinet.

SOMETIMES the handle screws must be removed as well.
I have taken a lot of these out and the key is to figure out which direction it comes out... MOST are out the back and sometimes a board across the back has to be taken off with four screws to clear a transformer.
FIGHTING getting the thing out when it catches on the Tolex covering is the USUAL problem. Takes patience and sometimes a blade to hold the Tolex back.
USUALLY the speaker baffle stays in place.

SOURCE: 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.
