Hi guys

Anybody know what the crossover points are in the peavet 4xt's?

Are the crossovers built in 2 or 3 way?

300 and 1200. 12db slope on mid, and 18db slope on high frequency. According to Peavey website.

 Quasi three way, so both 2 and 3 way, sort of, or 2.5 way according to some manufacturers (Confused). As said above the crossover points are 300 and 1200 with the bottom woofer being low passed at 300 and the middle woofer and horn crossed at 1200hz so the bottom woofer does bass only and the middle woofer bass and mid.

 Hmm, it would seem they aren't quasi 3 way then as I thought. I'm not sure if I just can't make it out in the picture but it doesn't look like you have the HF protection bulb on the crossover either? Confused

Apparently the American SP ones are 3 way, the uk ones are different.

I had not noticed the bulb missing. I will open another one up tomorrow as I know some of my others have the bulb.

I was going to go down the route of bi amping them

That isn't a PV crossover and if I was guessing I'd say it could probably only handle about 150w.

To be honest, the reason I want the crossover point for the horn is so I can bi amp the cabs

The crossovers could come out then

The HiSYS 4xt user manual I found online(is that what you have?)says to use the Peavey PL-1200 active crossover module when bi-amping with CS series amplifiers, that is a 1.2khz 18db/oct crossover.

Peavey UK used to build certain cabinets including HiSYS 4 in the UK so they may be fitted with different spec Xovers compared to the original USA built cabinets---In the past, I have removed Peavey cabinets from installs and some have had totally different Xovers compared to others but they have all been genuine factory Xovers--usual giveaway are the multipin connectors that they use.
