Question about Music
Can I use a 8 Ohm speaker in this Amp??
According to the manual, it needs a 16 ohm minimum load, so no, you best not use an 8 ohm speaker.

If you add 8 ohm speakers in parallel then you would be running the amps into a 4 ohm load ...which will overheat and possibly damage them ...... if you wire series then the amps would be loaded to 16 ohms ...which would be ok ..but you will only develop 70 % of the total output power
IE a 100watt would be down to 70 watts
much better to add some seperate powered speakers

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.

It can be bad or loose wire or cut in between the wires causing this.But to confirm this ,try connecting the first speaker to +2/-2 and connect second speaker to +1/-1 and see if both speakers are working or problem is same as before.If both speakers are working then it was loose connection some where and it sorted out.If the problem is same as before then its loose or bad wire causing this.The internal wall wiring will need replacement or will need external wire connections.--------Get this checked.This will help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: I just bought an 800RB
Here is the schematic AND everything you need to know about the speakers:
Scroll down to "Get Manual" on the site and click on it to download. It appears that the MINIMUM impedance on the trebel upper set is 8 ohms and MINIMU on the woofer is 4 ohms at the jack in each case.

SOURCE: External Speaker hookup problem. I hooked up 2 external speakers (8 ohm, 160 watt) into my Marshall AVT 50 amp (tag on back says 4 ohm minimum). Everything worked fine, then I shut it down and now (ne
If you are competent with electronics, open it up and check the fuse(s). Especially if no lights come on. If you get voltage, then check the jacks you plugged into- they may have dirty interrupt contacts. When you plug the jack in- it opens those contacts that otherwise are closed making the circuit to the cabinet's built in speaker. Contact cleaner should clean them up if that is the issue.
While it is possible there is a power supply issue, you can see that quick with a voltmeter, it is not likely you did much more than blow a fuse.- very possible if you unplugged speakers with the amp operating..
If you think you killed it- you usually still get distorted noise.

Testimonial: "Thanks - I'll pass this on to the guy looking at it. I'd like to believe it's just a fuse, but I'm preparing for a blown output transformer. I'm still not sure why it blew - two 8 ohm speakers in parallel should be 4 ohms, and that's what the amp was rated for. Even when (for a short time) I had only 1 speaker hooked up, those 8 ohms would just decrease the efficiency, right, not cause the transformer to blow? Obviously, I'm trying to understand this so that it doesn't happen again! Thanks for your help!"
