That's easily done. Simply connect the left(or right) output of your mixer to one of the channels on the peavey. Use any line input. Since the peavey is a mono system, there's no need sending a stereo mix to it.

I have a peavey 8600. will it run a pair of 600w 4ohm cerwin vegas?


Hello,

This is the amp capacity, 600W @4 Ohm, so you just have to drive them below full power to avoid excessive distortion, but certainly you will play a bit loud.

How can you tell if a fuse is blown on a XR 8600 power amp by peavey?


The fuse is probably placed near the power cable entrance in the power amp.
Pick it up from it's placing dock and look for the wire inside. If the wire is whole, the fuze is fine, however, if the wire inside the fuze is missing or burned, the fuze needs to be replaced.

Why does the 1.6amp fuse blow when the amplifier is switched on?


The owners manual shows a AC fuse for the 8300 as 8amp / 250 volts but doesn't show an external fuse holder for the 8600d. It's unlikely that the 8300 would use a 8amp and your 8600 a 1.6 amp. Double check your original fuse values.

How do i hook a peavey fx24 mixer to a Peavey xr8600 with out going through the 8600's mixer? I am wanting to use the 8600 to power my mains and use another amp to power my monitors. can i do this?


You CAN drive the power amps from the main amp inout jacks BUT the rest of the inout of the 8600 would be dead then. You can connect the L and R from the FX24 to either the media RCA jacks or into the channel9/10 jacks. FOr the latter, use TRS cables. Leave the two selection buttons in the up position.

I have a peavey 8600 powered mixer. If i run powered speakers through the main output on the front will I not have effects?


If you run the speakers FROM the main you should have BOTH the effects and the EQ invilved with your signal.

I use my Peavey XR 8600 with an acoustic duo that I'm in. At my last show, an audience member grabbed and dropped a vocal microphone that sent a sharp sound through the Peavey and shut it down. When I...


Chances are one of the power amps has shorted. Replacing the fuse probably fried additional components. Unless you are electronically adept this is NOT a DIY repair.

Expect that this is going to be an expensive repair as often quite a few transistors and other components fry when one goes in these power amps.

Hello, What is the proper way to connect an Ashly XR1000 Crossover and a Pyle Pro PTA1400 power amp to my Peavey XR8600 so I can use 2 subs? The subs are not powered, but do have a passive crossover...


Here is a link to the manual:http://www.peavey.com/assets/literature/manuals/00513220_7.pdf I didn't look at the manual for the crossover but this is probably the way I would do it. Look at page 13 in the manual : Come out of the Main out (31 in the diagram) into the main in of your crossover. Go out of your crossover Hi and Mid out setting back into Power amp In 1 (labelled 32 in the diagram). Hook your speakers that you normally use to the output jacks on the back of the Peavey. Make sure you match the output impedances. Go out of your crossover low output into the Pyle power amp and out of the Pyle into your subs. Make sure the impedance ratings of all your speakers match the output impedances of your amps. You will only be running in Mono mode as that is the signal output of the Peavey mixer. You can run faux stereo by using the Main monitor Out as 1/2 the pair and the Main Out as the other 1/2 to both channels of the crossover but you won't be getting a true stereo pan mode.

How do i connect 2 monitors to the one monitor output jack on the peavey xr 600c mixer..cheers My product not quite the one as listed from your product database but may be similar


The monitors will have to be POWERED monitors with built in amps.

You can simply use a wye splitter cable to drive the two monitors. Run the cable from the mixer to one monitor and put a wye cable and an extention to the second powered monitor speaker.
