  1. One more thing. I like to drive my amps with true Balanced connectors. If you use a 1/4 inch cable to go from channel A's through out to channel B's input be sure to use a TRS cable. Depending on what Peavey used for a circuit those out jacks may be only "quais balanced" Some say just a regular 1/4 inch unbalanced cable is fine for a short run. Does it really make a difference? In a short runs like that I'd lean on the No side but again it certainly doesn't hurt. The 2nd advantage of a Y cable at the amp is you know you have true balanced inputs going to your 2 channels.

  2. There have been several different runs of the IPR3000's. Some didn't even have a crossover in them. The ones I remember if you selected Channel A for the High Pass, the channel going to your SP2's , the out jack for Channel A was sending this same signal with the High Pass filter in it as well. So if you went into Channel B from channel A's out there would be no bass in it. I wasn't exactly sure so my advice was just put a Y cable at the amp feeding both channels. Makes it real easy. You could try as your dealer suggested but if you find you know longer have bass going to your subs then you'll know why and have to go back to the Y input. To me it keeps it simple just to put a Y at the input to the amp. 6 to 1 , half dozen to the other. Again what they suggested may work or not. Either way your going to need a patch cable of one form or the other. There is no difference if the first channel input always allows the full frequency out when its channel crossover is engaged. But when the crossover is engaged on a channel I've seen some of the Peavey amps output only what the crossover was set on so that is why I recommended the Y cable. Hope that helps. Doug
  3. Nice but this post is 5 years old.. Just saying.
  4. I see some basic information is out on the Midas Heritage-D Air.
  5. I agree. I just hope if after awhile they can't keep it going they let us know in advance so we can post are last post and ride off into the sunset. I have been on older chat groups that I went to one day are they were simply gone. I've been making a few post and answering a few questions for 18 or so years here. It would be nice to give the "Hey guys, best of luck!" post at the end.
  6. Looks like a nice rig but for $300 more you can pick up the 24R. All inputs in front and 12 mix outs. For that much more I would think it would be well worth it. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/SL24R--presonus-studiolive-24r-24-channel-rackmount-digital-mixer?mrkgcl=28&mrkgadid=3251364601&rkg_id=0&utm_source=MSN&utm_medium=PPC&utm_campaign=aaShopping - Core - Live Sound & Lighting&utm_term=Brand=presonusId=&campaigntype=shopping&campaign=aaShopping - Core - Live Sound & Lighting&adgroup=Live Sound & Lighting - Live Sound Mixers&placement=bing&creative=77927926673874&device=c&matchtype=e&msclkid=4982a699360318eac8edf8ad848c8349&gclid=CPvQxdL5rucCFRXxswod2pwGxQ&gclsrc=ds Doug
  7. I know its sad. Every time I stop by here I wonder if the site will still be up. I've been on here when there was 50 to 100 members online here at a time. I first signed on here around 2002 so it is sad to see it falling off. I'm guessing the "facebook'" type sites have pretty much taken over for questions and fast replies. Too many User of brand X type sites to compete with a general site. After close to 18 years here again its sad to see the traffic now. Doug
  8. I remember those boxes. In general the woofer in the box will have a 4 ohm rating. Be sure to see what woofer is in the box before you chose a amp to drive it. Peavey used a woofer that had a wider frequency range for the bass cabinets but it should be fine in the 45hz to 100hz range you'd be running it in. As others have stated you'll get what you get out of it. A amp that gives 350 watts at 4 ohms or so ( if it is a 4 ohm woofer in the box ) with a 40 to 45hz low cut and 100hz high cut crossover built in should be fine. Post a picture of the cabinet so I can see it. I was using Peavey stuff for 30 years or so. Also look for the manual at Peavey's site.
  9. This post was from 10 years ago. It may be worth your while to start a new thread and give more details. Mixer,speakers, setup etc. Your sort of asking " My car doesn't go as fast as it used to. Anyone know why? "
  10. I believe this looks like an upgrade to the X/M32 line. More to add value and channel count to it. I know 40 Stereo inputs looks nice. I also heard rumors of more coming out in this line but time will tell. Looks like a loaded desk for $3500 retail.
  11. $3500 U.S. price (Retail) Pretty loaded for what it is.

  13. Got it. So it wasn't " Feedback " as in a feedback loop between a microphone and monitor it was some ringing coming out of a damaged unit in a internal feedback loop inside. I had 3 Peavey Cex5 digital crossovers. Two of them suffered from "Tin Whiskers" Basically the Tin in the solder used to manufacture them was too high. They grew Whiskers and shorted the PC board. When they first started to go they let out a wine sound that got louder and louder. Not fun. Glad you found your issue! https://nepp.nasa.gov/WHISKER/background/index.htm
  14. I'm trying to wrap my head around how you can get feedback with all the channels muted. I'd swap each component out. Change the board, change the crossover, change the speakers. Could you describe the feedback, record it and host it on youtube etc.? Positive its from FOH and not monitors? I've seen mutes that mute the mains but leave the monitor system unmuted...Or check to see if the monitor system/FOH system somehow got swapped around by someone trying to "Help" you ..
