Hi. The mixer puts out a full range mix, the solution is in your speaker setup.

Many subs have a built in crossover that splits the signal for the tops. Check your sub specs or manual. If your subs have this, run your output signal to them first and then link them to the tops from the special daisychain socket.

If they don't have one, you can install a passive crossover to your subs or buy an external crossover unit.

The last (and not very good) option is to fake a crossover with the desk's stereo EQ. Connect the subs to the left or right channel and the tops to the other and use the EQ to remove the bass from the tops and vice versa, pan everything dead center. Obviously this sacrifices your stereo sound and isn't brilliant.

On my peavey xr1220, when I turn on the power switch the board does not power up. What could be the problem?


Probably a fuse ? I have been servicing a lot of Peavey equipment lately and they have some poor circuit designs, a lot of internal un accessible fuses, I might be able to get more info ?

Sound cuts out


check the free air circulation in the power amp module, also check your speaker's impedance, let me know further, sorry for the late answer.

I have a xr 1220. How do I get the phantom power switch to work? I have overhead condenser mics for drums on 11 and 12 but the switch seems recessed and not responsive. Thanks, Steve


The48 volt supply is a simple rectifier/filter from the power transformer. The schematics don't even show the switch anyplace that one can find it. It appears they don't even regulate the 48 volts... Some Peavey switches are just in a hole that you have to poke something into with an alternate action button. They use these on some equipment for instance for selecting a powered mixer into L/R or Main/monitor setup. Push in with a match stick... From the manual it lloks like this is supposed to be a tiny square button... these are EASILY broken off but usually you can still actuate the switch with a little stick.

I have 110v XR 1220 power mixer and friend of mine plug into 240v power point, blown the two transistors ou. I do not know what short of transistors are they?


There are dozens of transistors in the unit... we can't guess which you might be refering to. The power supply of the 1200 series mixers have fuse before each part of the supply for the preamp sections.

Two things... Use BALANCED LINES, either XLR or TRS... AND power the mixer from the same receptacle or power conditioner as the speakers and the sub.

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.
