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.

HOW DO I GET THE SPEAKER OUT OF A PEAVY KB-100 CABINET


You remove the speaker grill cloth frame from the front of the amp. The entire frame is held on by velcro onn the corners of the face of the amp. Once off, there will be 8 philips head screws holding the speaker into the cabinet.

How can I service Behringer epa900 speaker


Can't say for sure....there should be a bunch of screws in the back so you can gain access....is this a powered cabinet??...can you dis-connect the present speaker and horn and hook up another just to make a test?? Is the cabinet plastic?? There could be loose screws....Does the cabinet have a recess for a stand??If so, check the retaining screws in that as well....and don't forget to check the grill....

Relay?? I've never seen a guitar or bass amp with "speaker protection relays"...usually they're either on or off. Check the simple stuff 1st...is speaker cable from head to cabinet and/or the input cable from bass to the amp good? Check the "Direct Out" for a line level signal (must be connected to a PA or other amplifier) as this is your preamp out signal. Also, plug a shielded cable from "Effects Send" to "Effects Return"...this will verify "effects" loop issues if any. Lastly, vibration test...use a clenched fist across the top, sides and bottom of wood cabinet to lightly "jar" the internal circuits. If it starts working even for an instant, I would suspect intermittent connection inside.

How do you connect a peavey 6505+ amp to a marshall 1960a cabinet?


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.

Can i connect 2 (2x12) cabs rated @ 4ohms each to my avt50 head?


No, the ATV50 head is rated for 4 ohms total. Using both 4 ohm cabinets at once will fry your amp. Your only option would be to rewire your cabs internally to 16 ohms each by connecting the speakers in parallel, but that would cut your amp's power in half.

I have a guitar head stack with 2 8Ohm outputs and a 2x12 orange ppc212 slant with 16Ohm impendance. How to link by 8Ohm the two parts?


As long as the impedance of the speakers do NOT go below the rating of the amp you can connect them without worry Your amp would drive two 8 ohm speakers. Using the 16 ohm speaker it will only draw half the current and only accept half the power that one of the 8 ohm outputs can deliver.

How do I correctly connect my mg100hdfx head to a marshall stereo cabinet? Do I connect cables from both outputs from my amp to both inputs in my cabinet?


the second jack is usually for a second cabinet.

here's a link to the manual. to be sure.

if it has effects on it, you may require two cabinets for the stereo effects. in the truest sense of stereo is what i mean.

Can you directly hook a sr16 to a peavey bass speaker cabinet using the output mono on the sr16 to send or retrn on the cabinet?


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.
