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.

SOURCE: 4 x12 slant cab grill is ripped its a '' MARSHALL''

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.

SOURCE: can you directly hook a sr16 to a peavey bass

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.

SOURCE: How to remove amp from cabinet? reverb doesn't work.

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.

It sounds like you have a dead guitar cable or the preamp section of the amp is blown. It needs to go to the shop. It's way cheaper in the long run to just take an amp in. If you try poking around without knowing what you're doing you can fry something more expensive or worse yet yourself! There are leathal voltages in a guitar amp!

My vypyr tube 60 is making a whining noise on the higher gaine amps especially the 6505 and satriani settings.


You might need to send it off to Peavey and have them repair it. Something is wrong with the computer. Check your warranty.

I feel like a dork asking this question but how do you connect the amplifier to your mixer. I see that there are places for a banna plug however my mixer will not take a 1/4 banna plug.


In case you don't have one, here is a link to the manual:http://www.peavey.com/assets/literature/manuals/80300573.pdf I don't know if you are using a separate crossover between the mixer and the amp but here is the simplest explanation.I just reread your question and I don't even know whether you have a Peavey amp. Run proper cables from the main output of your mixer to the main inputs of your power amp.They will be 1/4"shielded cables or Balanced XLR cables. Do not use unshielded speaker cables to hook the mixer and the amp together.Run speaker cables from the speaker outputs of the amp to the input jacks of your speakers.Make sure the impedance of your speaker cabinets equals or exceeds the impedance rating marked on your amp. Here is the link to the newer model PV2600 manual:http://www.sweetwater.com/store/media/pv2600_doc_manual.pdf Don't use Speakon cables unless your speaker cabinets are equipped with Speakon input jacks. Banana plugs aren't as solid a connection as the binding posts are.

How to connect the speaker cabinet to the head?


Use a SPEAKER RATED cable which will have good quality 1/4 inch jacks. Go from a speaker out on the head to one of the jacks provided on the speaker cabinet. NOTE: some newer speaker cabinets use SPEAKON connectors and if those are provided, they are more secure than 1/4 inch plugs/jacks.

PLEASE loop the speaker cables through a handle of the cabinet at each end to avoid them being yanked out while hot as the amplifier can be damaged if it happens.

OBSERVE the maximum load. If the amp says 4 ohms minimum, put no more than two 8 ohm cabinets on the amp as two 8 ohms parallel to 4 ohms.

DO NOT use an instrument cable.

Looking for a schmatic for the 410 tvx 4 ohm and the 410 tvx 8ohm cabinets


Go to www.peavey.com/asstes/literature/specs/005584220_3.pdf. Apparently the 410 TVX can be used in 4ohm or ohm configurations just don't drop below 4 ohms and make sure your amp has the minimum required impedence. Hope this helps.
