  • 1/2 power kit for triplex

    Does anyone know where i can get a 1/2 power switch kit for my peavey xxx .120 watts is getting to be a bit much.thanks

    I can't find a schematic for a peavey XXX, but Boogie among others just use a SPST to terminate the ground on one pair of cathodes of the output tubes.

    Without looking at the schematic I would imagine a similar arrangement would work for your amp.

      Half power is still 60w. That's still LOUD. Maybe look into power scaling?

          Maybe you need a smaller (2nd) amp for a more controllable volume level when you need less. I prefer amps in the 30 (+-) watt range because of this problem. I used a 120W Ampeg VT22 for years and it was great when you wnated to destroy the building accross the steet but was way too much too often in smaller venues.
