Question about Peavey IPR-3000 Power Amp

1 Answer

I have two PV IPR3000 amps (no dsp), one amp will supply a pair of sp2 speaker mains, the other amp will supply four PV 118 subs. I would like to use a PV215 dual channel eq. Could you please tell the best way to patch in these three pieces of equipment, they will need to come out with just one left and right to patch into my Yamaha PA mixer. Thanks for your help.

Just a note regarding connecting: USE BALANCED lines everywhere you can. Use either XLR if available or TRS type cables. This will reduce noise pickup.

Another hint: For SAFETY of your equipment run ANY interconnected devices from the SAME power source. DO NOT say power the amps from one place and your other equipment from a different outlet. Afford a power distribution system that feeds from a single receptacle or nearby receptacles near a common electrical panel. This will ALSO help avoid noise as well as the hazards to your equipment from ground loops.

SOURCE: can i connect the pv 112 to the pv 118 subwoofer

Generally speaking you should only send low frequencies to subs. The highs, while lower in power than the lows, will over time harm the voice coils. The ideal way to do this is to use an external crossover netween the main output and the amp input with the higher range going to a general set of speakers. Send the lows through the second channel of the amp and then to the subs.

In short, while not recommended, yes you can hook them up in parallel.

First of all confirm if the speaker impedance is not lower then the recommended Ohms at the back of the Mixer speaker socket.You can use an 8 Ohms speaker on a 4 Ohms amplifier but not vise versa .
Next see if the fan on the mixer works. If not the Amp is getting very hot and this will lead to unwanted distortion. You can confirm if its a heat related issue by playing the mixer at low volumes for more than an hour and see if it distorts.

How to connect subs and mains to the same pv2600


This will depend on your Subs. If they have an inbuilt crossover there will be input and outputs on the rear, with the output marked something like 'tops' or 'Output to HF'

If you have these then it should be a simple matter of connecting yout amp to the subs and then the mains to the output.

If you haven't got a crossover in the subs then you will either need to buy a pair of two way crossovers for the right power and frequency and have these in the speaker wiring or use the amp's inbuilt crossover and run one channel for tops and the other for subs. You will lose stereo but the amp will happily drive a 2ohm load so you should still be able to use all four speakers.

Does anyone know how i should hook up a pair of peavey sp118 Bxsubs with a pair of peavey pr15 tops and the behringer inuke nu6000 please help


You will require 4 heavy gauge 1/4" speaker cables in order to connect all 4 cabinets to the Behringer power amp. Usually two longer ones from the power amp to the sub woofer cabs. Then two short ones from the second "thru" jack to the upper 15" cabs. Remember the entire audio frequency range is going to all four speakers. Sometimes you will have problems balancing the low frequency levels between all four cabs depending on the loading of each. A more desirable way to do this is with a bi-amped arrangement. This way two seprate amps are used for the subs and 15" cabs and you control them independantly.

My peavy 118 subs dont play as loud anymore what could be the problem.


Circuit resistance from corrosion, or broken strands int he flex wire connections between voice coil and the terminals. It is also possible the voice coil form is distorted. It is also possible a capacitor in the amplifier is in the early stages of failure.

Test the resistance of the speaker with wires disconnected. If it doesn't show around 8 ohms plus or minus 2 ohms, it is probably blown requiring either re-coning or replacement.

My Peavey PV-118 18" subwoofer


Peavey uses a protection network and sometimes it gets blown when too much power is sent to the speaker. The speaker may be blown however. Peak power for this is 800 Watts and 400 Program... That is NOT RMS power. Make sure your amp is no bigger than 300 Watts RMS driving this. If you are REAL lucky, maybe a lead has fallen off the speaker... Open the unit inspect and test the components.

My pair of Peavy 118 unpowered subs quit working simultaneously. There was not any horrible noise or anything like that. They simply stopped working. I have a crossover and a biamped system that they...


I would NOT rewire them. The crossover is also part of the protection. The big question are the speakers themselves damaged? There may be a protection fues inside. There are also some resetable type fuses called "polyfuse" that sometimes fry and require replacement. This speaker is rated at 800 watts PEAK and 400 Watts program... that is NOT 400 watts continuous RMS... it is "specsmanship". You should be driving this with an amp capable of NOT MORE than 300 Watts.
They claim a SPL of 118 Db. That is loud, but if you used an amp capable of say 500 watts RMS you could easily blow the speaker. The crossover for this is likely a simple coil in series... possibly on a ferrite core. Hopefully if anything blew, it was the coil... but that is NOT likely. I assumed you have checked the amp as that would be the MOST probablle for a simultaneous failure of the subs.

I have a PV 18"


I do not understand what you mean by "removing the jack assembly". If you mean you leave it connected but hanging out, the problem is LIKELY you are driving it too hard and the protector is activating. Having it outside would cool the protector. You need to evaluate how much you are sending to this cabinet and see if it is within the ratings. This is a VERY compact speaker rated at 800 Watts peak and 400 Watts PROGRAM... read that as using a 200 Watt RMS amp driving it... for safety. There is a chance that the connections to the speaker are loose and removing the jack puts a load on the connectors... they are probably some of those lousy push on connectors... This is the best plan: Use a sound level meter to make sure you are not exceeding the 118 Db sound pressure level the speaker is capable of. Realize that the kick drum puts pulse type load into the speaker. Most likely you are tripping the PTC speaker protection circuit that is probably located on the jack assembly... the PTC will typically be a disc about the size of a quarter with two leads. It heats up and opens the speaker circuit until it cools down... takes a few seconds. In free air it might not trip due to air cooling. DO NOT drive your speakers too hard... they are EXPENSIVE to replace. If you need more sound put another speaker in parallel. I know a lot of deaf musicians so get a meter and check the SPL... You want to keep it around 85 to 90 Db with peaks that can go to a little over 100. There are OSHA limits. Read up on hearing loss...
