Question about Peavey SP2 PA Passive Speaker

# Hi,i got the circuit diagram of the soundguard protection u have sent, but the resistor(50w 5ohms) used in your circuit. in my circuit two resistors(25w 10ohms each) are used in parallel. so in my case what will be the wattage & voltage of the bulb. The bulb in my circuit is tube shaped. Please help.

Two 25 watt, 5 ohm resistors in parallel are equivalent to one 50 watt, 10 ohm resistor. I don't have the circuit diagram and there's not enough info in your post to determine the wattage and voltage of the bulb, but the bulb would be the same in either circuit.

Thanks for your kind support. it was very much helpful. regarding my Peavey sp2 speakers

Resistors in parallel cuts the impedence in half instead of doubling. Ohms law states the equation above would be equivalent to 50 watt 2.5 ohm resistor.

For the MOST PART the lamp is NOT the primary path for the speaker current, the POLYFUSE is and is a low resistance until it is overdriven.

The bulb is a 12 volt bulb and is nominally 2.1 amps when used on 12.8 volts.

If this is in regards to the other problem mentioning 32 watts and 12.8 volts... this bulb is NOT 32 Watts, it is 32 CP or 32 Candlepower which is NOT Watts in general. The lamp is actually around 27 Watts when run at its ratings.

It is important to realize that the lamp and the resistor are there ONLY as a "soft" path when the POLYFUSE opens due to overcurrent. When the polyfuse cools, the lamp and resistors are effectively shorted by the Polyfuse and most of the current again flows through the polyfuse..

### Hi, I have own a pair of peavey impulse 1012 speakers. One of them has developed a fault in that the output is terribly owful at low volume compared to the other one but an increase in the output from the...

"terribly owful " is not a descripption we can really understand. You need to describe whether the probllem is with the bass or treble speaker... lows/highs... The only suggestion we can give is to open the unit. You will need a LONG phillips screwdriver and remove all the screws in wells around the edges from the back and then gently separate the shell. Inspect for loose wiring. You don
t mention if you are using this as bi-amped or not which we need to know. This unit has the soundguard protection of the tweeter which consists of an automotive type lamp and a polyfuse. I would open the unit and see if there is a problem with the connections or possiblly a socket problem with the lamp as that would disturb the tweeter level. If you are bi-ampong this, then verify that swapping the speakers the problem is the speaker and NOT the cable or amp... Also verify the switch on the back of the speaker is properly set.

### I plugged what i assumed was the correct transformer into my micro br and after a burning smell it died .obviously now i realise it was the wrong one ! unit does power on by battery still and works ok .is...

This was probably supposed to have a 5 volt power adapter... you burned up either:

1. Regulator
2. Circuit trace on the board
3. Protection diode
4. resistor ahead of the regulator.

Repair should not be too bad if they know exactly what you had connected, Make sure to use a competent shop.

### Hi, I own the Dynaudio BM6A acoustics monitors & I want to know if there is a circuit breaker system inside the monitors, for surge protection? The reason I ask is because I have no power conditioner...

If an internal circuit breaker pops, something has failed. Even surge protectors do little to protect stuff unless they are high level types with filtering. Key thing: ALL your interconnected equipment MUST be powered from the SAME receptacle or power conditioner. Using multiple outlets can allow building "ground bounce" to rupture sensitive input circuits. Use of balanced lines avoids noise in systems.

### Blown fuse on the board.The fuse is so welded in? does this fuse control the crossover?

There is a speaker protection network in most of Peavey speakers protecting the tweeter horn.

It consists of a Polyfuse (round disk about the size of a nickle or quarter, a resistor and an incandescent bulb.

### Could u please send me a circuit diagram of Peavey sp2 crossover with the exact rattings or values of the parts? cos the image of the bulb you have sent is different from the one in my speakers

Here is a link to forum that someone has posted the soundguard protection circuit down the page:

http://forums.peavey.com/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=2168&view=previous

The 1156 lamp MAY have slightly different shapes but is an automotive lamp. If the bulb is blown, the polyswitch fuse is likely blown as well.

### My Behringer Europower Pmp5000 Powered Mixer blew one of my speakers and then it burnt out one of the outputs.

Probably the channel A went. If you are fortunate, the power supply is still OK. There are protection circuits for the speakers, however you MUST use speakers that are rated at over 400 Watts. If you use smaller ones, they can get blown. There is a weakness primarily on insulation for channel A and an arc between layers of a circuit board can wipe out several transistors and a zener diode and sometimes a metering resistor. Once this happens, have unit serviced before using it again as further damage can result.
ALSO PLEASE read my tip I posted on FIXYA regarding a grounding hazard when using Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables... essentially the barrel of the 1/4 inch jack of the A channel is the hot lead, NOT the tip for that channel.
