  1. thanks,i looked at the manual,bit confusing so normal connection it is then,yeah the drivers are 8 ohms each 600w rms,gonna use these amps saturday,bargain,2 brand new for £100,lets hope they are up to the job lol
  2. lol,2 warrior is1000w amps will be used to drive 1 dual 18" bass bin which is 1200w rms,so 1 amp=1 speaker,2 amps=2 speakers,the speakers are wired on there own so i can run 2 amps to drive them.i did use a peavey cs800x in bridge mode on its own to drive this bass bin,but it keeps going thermol on me as its not got the power,the 2 warriors will give me a lot more head room(800w) so should be fine,just want to no how to wire the speakon connector!hope this kind of explains lol
  3. i am gonna run 2 amps in bridge to drive a double 18" bass bin,the bridge input is a speakon connection,bridge is always positive to positve,but on a speakon connector theres a + and a minus,so do i just join both wires and put it into the plus,then plug it in?or can i use the normal speaker terminals,ie red to red?
  4. be carefull on there power ratings,i have a friend who recones speakers,there rms is is more like a peak rating,ie they may say 500w rms,when its more probably around the 350 w mark.
  5. SUPERSONIC OSCILATION,WHAT IS THAT LOL,anyway superstar,i used it last night,didnt cane the bass line and it never cut out once,i had it serviced by sound and light in leamington,bloke said its as good as new,yes i have the ddt switch set to on,yeah i no running in bridge mode isnt the best but havent got any choice at the minute as cant afford a behringer 2500,but i am getting there.on a brighter note,i said before bout my pro 15 compression drivers blowing,well i bought some soundlab 60w compression drivers,they are far superior to the peaveys,they are louder,clearer,and havent blown once,al
  6. hi dj cee,yeah fans working,had the amp serviced a few eeks bk,its like a mirror inside,no dust at all,think i will cut back on the bass tonight,then use another more powerful amp tommorow night.
  7. hi all,have got a residency in a town centre boozer,nice sounding system except the yamaha 18 inch subs tend to cut out,around an hour and a half into playing,i have wired them up together to get 4 ohms,and they are run bridged on a peavey cs800 x,which gives 1200w out in bridged mode,the yamaha are 600w rms each. amp isnt clipping at all,it just goes off then comes on around 1 minute later,this gets worse towards the end of the night,is this a speaker protect or amp going thermal on me,.i play dance music all night,so its thumping non stop.if i turn the bass down a touch would this cure
  8. hi all,in desperate need off gigs as 2 a month is no good to me especially with a baby due in the next week or so(need all the money i can get),anything considered,dont mind travelling for upto an hour,i am in coventry,cheers all.
  9. missed out the eq on previous post so, mixer eq compressor crossover amps is that the correct way,dave?
  10. hi,where does the compressor go in the chain,is it,, mixer compressor crossover amps ??????
  11. excellent,where did u find this manual,couldnt find it anywhere unless i paid a fee.
  12. hi all,im am gonna run this amp in bridge mode,for one night only,2 drive 2 yamaha 18 subs 400w each at 8ohms,connected together gives me a 4 ohm load,i understand this amp delivers 1200 in 4 ohm bridge,but where do i connect to on the back regarding terminals,do i connect to both the positives in the speaker connections,ie positve on left channel and positve on the right,or is this wrong?
  13. cheers superstar,i will look into it
  14. hi all again,ok after my tweeter blowing experience i am going to buy a compressor,although i dont no which behringer model 2 buy as they all do simular things,like have peak limiters on them,could anyone clarify i need this model?? behringer mdx 1600 autocom pro xl????
  15. ok,2 new diaphrams ordered from a nice chap a stagebeat,got a great deal,£30 sheets,including vat and delivery.
  16. hi,i avent got a meter so i just tried it in the other cabinet and it didnt work,i put the good one in the magnet and it worked although even the one that worked smelt of burning a bit,looks like 2 new diaphrams.
  17. hi all, after my previous post it seems that these drivers were original peavey parts,so is there anyway i can check the diaphram to see if its working or blown as i dont want to buy a diaphram if its the magnet that has a problem,also anyone no the wattage of these drivers,have e mailed peavey but no reply.had my peavey amd back from service and theres no problem with that,but one thing he did say was that,the amp is a bit to powerful for the pro 15s.thanks
  18. are these easy to put in the unit as i have never tried this before?
  19. you may have a point as i used a different mixer than what i usually use as its better quailty than my other numark,do you think the diaphram is easy to replace as this is what a presume is blown,can get a peavey diaphram for £13.99
  20. no the leds just went like it,no movement at all just full,thats when i looked at my rackpack and the ddts where stuck on aswell,i turned the volume down,and the mixer lights where still on full,no change even tho i decreased the volume by half,like i said earlier i done a party with a citronic amp,with the same power rating and it didnt clip once all night and the room was bigger.confused i am.
  21. hi jim,why wasnt the amp clipping when i done a sound check,and the 3 hours beforehand,or are you saying i need a more powerful amp for these speakers,i wouldnt have confidence in these speakers with a bigger amp,especially in the compression units,these cabs are 500w programme,i think a more powerful amp would blow them apart lol.i was also using a seperate eq,so the sound was well under control with the gains on the eq just over half,and all the sliders basicly on 0.
  22. hi mate,the mixer was fine more or less all night,i would have thought that there was still plenty of power to push,i just literally searched for a cd,turned round and all hell broke loose,like a surge of power or sumin,i missed the tweeter blowin because i had headfones on and was in the mix,obviously when i took them off i heard it straight away and turned the volume down to halfway,but the amp was still going into overload on both sides,i think it has to be the cheapo compression drivers the previous owner put in them,obviously not up 2 the job.

    hi all,ok where do i start. done a brilliant gig saturday,first 3 hours the sound was excellent,no distortion etc,come 11pm,i looked at the mixer,the led lights where literally full on,not moving,turned and looked at 1 of the amps(peavey cs800x),the ddt warning lights where stuck on,then bang,1 tweeter as blown on 1 side,i turned the amp down so it was only half on,and the ddt lights where still on,the side with the tweeter blown shut down that side of the amp(it done it on its own),although this came back on it still shut itself down when i turned the volume up a litle. can anyone t
