Line outs Left and Right from mixer to power amp Left and Right inputs,
Power amp outs to Subs(if they have passive crossovers built in check specs on subs).
From Subs then to Main spkrs. Make sure power amp is set in stereo mode using this way.

Alternative: You will need at least a 2-way stereo crossover unit inline after mixer and before power amps if the subs don't have a built in passive crossover. Most of them do have passive crossovers in the subs these days. Then separate amps or one channel would drive the subs and the other the main speakers. True stereo would require at least a 2 way crossover and two stereo power amps if hooking them up this way.

There is another option as is common with many sub setups. Send the signal to the mains using L/R outputs from mixer and a separate Mono output to the subs only. Putting only bass/kick and low frequency outputs in this send would help too.

    If you have binding post cables which are commonly called banana plugs or 1/4" phono speaker or speakon speaker cables then any of these will work as outputs to your subs. It depends on the subs input connections. You can then use standard 1/4" phono speaker cables or speakon connectors to come out of the subs into the mains. Just remember that 1/4" instrument or Hi-Z cables to the poweramp and speaker cables after that. Banana plug(binding post), 1/4" phono speaker or speakon cables whichever you have should work. Hope this helps. If you need a diagram then you should be also able to type in the key word "sound re-enforcement" into google and get plenty of sites that have pictures. They are worth a thousand words as they say.

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.

I need a color coded wiring diagram for a peavey PV115 speaker cabinet.


Usually the colors you will find are red and black pair and yellow and white... USUALLY the red/blk pair go to the tweeter horn with red going to the + lead of the horn drivers. Usually the yellow/white pair go to the woofer with the white going to the + lead of the woofer in Peavey speakers... HOWEVER you never know if someone has rewired the cabinet so going by colors is NOT the best way to go... This should have the "soundgard" circuit in it and the lead that goes throught the lamp and resistor that is NOT connected to the inout jack is the TWEETER + lead. The pair that connects to the inout jack DIRECTELY is the woofer leads and the TIP connection of a 1/4 inch jack is the + woofer lead. Verifying these connections is the best method.

I have a peavey 1220 powered mixer and I'm trying to hook up to two sp15's top's and 2 18; peavey subs for my band and I can't get the bass seperated so it's out of my tops


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.

Was gigging with peavey 112xt subs and hisys 6 rx sats, one side went very low and ive isolated the problem to one of the subs, i was using dynachord 1000 powermate and driving it pretty hard, have i blown...


To pjstokes.I have exactly the same set up as you and have experienced the same problem. So far I have Changed The Bulbs inside the tops and also replaced the thermal fuses on the soundguard circuits (which are inside the 6XT tops) but still have the problem. Only when the cabs are driven hard do they stop working, no problems at low volume. Peavey don't have a solution. I think maybe some of the other components have blown but I don't know which ones. If anyone knows a solution please post it here.

I have bought a Behringer Europower 6000 mixer amp. I have 2 Peavey Pro 15 cabs and a subwoofer for each side. They are all rated at 4ohms. The guy in the shop told me to put the amp into the subs then...


No !!!!... you don't want to go below 4 ohms. Paralleling each sub and the Pro 15 would be like 2 ohms...

With those cabinets, either have a second amp driving the subs from the mono or main 1/4 inch jacks out of the mixer or the other thing is a kludge to series each PAIR, that is series the Pro15's to form 8 ohms and the subs to get 8 ohms and run the 6000 as a split between the A and B. The pan controls would not be useful this way at all.

I would recommend using a seperate amp for the subs.

Whoever that shop is wants you to burn up that unit so they can repair... don't do it... BE VERY careful to ensure speaker leads are solid as that amp can destroy itself if the speaker leads short or momentaarily break... I repair these amps... I know...

Run a sub woofer to a peavey board


I would recommend using a separate active crossover such as the Peavey 23XO and a separate amp for your subs.

Two amp


I don't know why you'd set the Peavey to 2 ohm to drive 8 ohm speakers??? My other thought is... I wonder if the phase is correct. try reversing one of the speaker wires Left or right side.
