Peavey Electronics is proud to announce the introduction of a new line of exciting Professional Power Amplifi-
ers. The new VXTM series is the result of years of research & development into a smaller, lighter, compact and
more powerful amplifier. These units operate much more efficiently than contemporary power amp designs
thereby requiring less current from the mains power plug and consequently produce lar less heating. This new
technology allows the VX-1.5K to reliably produce more than 1500 W RMS into 4 ohms (Bridge Mode) in a two
rack space unit, at extremely low distortion levels.
These new designs use a new class of operation called CLASS BG. This class uses two levels of power supply
“rails.” but switches between the rails faster and at lower distortion levels than does a typical Class G design.
This unit then combines higher efficiency and lower distortion, and together with our all new Non-saturating
Series Single Emitter Resistor topology (NSSER), provides awesome performance levels with full power 20
kHz distortion below 0.04%, and with slew rates greater than 40 V/uSec. This technology is called DYNAMIC
LOGIC and is covered by a U.S. Patent (Pending).
The following 1s the new VX-1.5K specs:
550 W RMS into 4 ohms; 750 W RMS into 2 ohms (per channel)
1100 W RMS into 8 ohms: 1500 W RMS Into 4 ohms (bridge mode)
Slew Rate: 40 V/microsecond, stereo mode, each channel
Frequency Response: 20 Hz — 20 kHz, +-0.2 dB, at rated power
Total Harmonic Distortion: Less than 0.04%. al rated power
Hum and Noise: 100 dB below rated power, unweighted
The unit is attractively packaged in a rugged, rack-mountable configuration requiring only two rack spaces.
Naturally it has Peavey's patented DDT™ Compression Circuitry, and has a very flexible back panel. The design
uses dual two speed fan cooling to provide all the cooling necessary for the two ohm load conditions.

INPUT SENSITIVITY (1)
The maximum input gain (minimum sensitivity rating) is achieved at the full clockwise setting, and this setting
yields the maximum mixer/system headroom. A setting of less than full clockwise will yield lower system noise
at the expense of mixer/system headroom. Calibration indicates sensitivity in dBV necessary to attain the full
available rated output power.
POWER LED (2)
Muminates when AC power is being supplied to the amp, and the associated channel is operational. If either
channel were to experience fault conditions or to exceed the safe operating temperature limits, then that channel
will shut down, and the associated power LED will cease to illuminate, indicating such conditions exist. Also,
whenever the BRIDGE mode is selected. the power LED of channel B is defeated (OFF), just as if there were a
fault condition on channel B. This provides a positive indication that the VX-1.5K is configured for bridge
mode.
DDT ACTIVE LED (3)
Hluminates when DDT Compression is taking place in that channel. With the ENABLE/DEFEAT switch in the
DEFEAT position, this LED indicates when clipping distortion is occurring in that channel.
CIRCUIT BREAKERS (4)
The VX-1.5K uses circuit breakers in place of main fuses. These breakers are provided to limit the current to the
associated power transformer for each channel, and thereby offer protection from overheating and possible
destruction due to fault conditions in the amplifier. The breaker trip current value has been carefully chosen to
allow continuous power output performance. vet still provide adequate protection for the power transformer.
Normally these breakers should not trip unless there is a fault in the amp circuitry that draws excessive mains
current. However. abnormal conditions such as a short circuit on either or both channels or continuous operation
at overload or clipping, especially into 2 ohm load will cause the breaker to trip. If this occurs simply reset the
breaker and correct the cause of the overload. When tripped, the button on the breaker will be outward nearly
1/2", and can be reset by pushing inward. A normal reset button length is about 1/4". If this “thermal” type
breaker does trip, then simply pushing the button back in will reset it after waiting a brief period of time to allow
it to cool down. If the breaker trips instantly each time you attempt to reset il. then the unit should be taken to à
qualified service center for repair.

HIGH Z INPUT JACKS (6)
Two parallel (bridged) input jacks are provided for each channel. This allows for one to be used as a conven-
tional input, and at the same time the other to be used as a “line out” (Y-cord) to connect to another input jack on
this amplifier or other amps/equipment. These 1/4" jacks are not “chassis grounded” and when used will provide
a QUASI-BALANCED input capability due to a unique “ground loop” elimination circuitry associated with the
inputs. This feature will normally allow “hum free” operation when relatively short 1/4" cable patches are made
between the various jacks on this amp and other jacks on various other equipment that share the same rack with
this amplifier. This QUASI-BALANCED capability is automatic and it can not be removed from the system's
circuitry.
FTRAMSFORMER I e CPHARIPE LB
LOW Z INPUT (7)
A conventional three-pin, female XLR input jack is provided and may be used as the channel input. When the
(PL-2) line balancing transformer is not used this XLR input becomes QUASI-BALANCED with pin #3 as the
positive input (connecting to the tip of the 1/4" input jacks above), pin #2 as the negative input (connecting to the
floating sleeve of the 1/4" input jacks above), and pin #1 going to the internal power amplifier ground. When the
(PL-2) line balancing transformer is used, this XLR input becomes fully TRANSFORMER-BALANCED (Pin
#3 positive, pin #2 negative, pin #1 ground). (See the PL-2 SELECTOR SWITCH section for details on related
settings.)
PL-2 SELECTOR SWITCH (8)
This switch is used in conjunction with the PL-2 transformer to allow the LOW Z INPUT to function with or
without a PL-2 module being inserted in the receptacle. The “OUT” position of this switch selects the
QUASI-BALANCED mode of operation for the LOW Z INPUT (XLR jack), and routes the input signal directly
to the HI Z INPUT JACKS. In this position the HI Z INPUT JACKS may be used as outputs after the LOW Z
INPUT to allow patching this signal to another input on this amp. Normally, in this switch position, a (PL-2)
transformer is not present (“OUT”) in the transformer receptacle; however, if one were “IN” the receptacle, the
LOW Z INPUT would still be QUASI-BALANCED. It becomes fully TRANSFORMER BALANCED only
when the IN switch position is selected. Notice this is a very effective means to “test” for the necessity of a
line-balancing transformer. The “IN” position of the switch routes the signals from the XLR jack through the
(PL-2) line-balancing transformer, thereby selecting the TRANSFORMER BALANCED mode of operation for
the LOW Z INPUT. In this position the HI Z INPUT JACKS may be used as outputs after the line balancing
transformer to patch the signal to another input jack on this amplifier or other amps/equipment. If the “IN”
position is selected without a (PL-2) line-balancing transformer “IN” the receptacle, the LOW Z INPUT will be
rendered inoperable.
TRANSFORMER RECEPTACLE (9)
This receptacle only receives the optional (PL-2) line-balancing transformer. When conditions exist that demand
the usage of a TRANSFORMER-BALANCED XLR INPUT for either or both channels, then the (PL-2) trans-
former must be put here, and the selector switch must be in the “IN” position.
DDT SWITCH (10)
This switch is used to either ENABLE or DEFEAT the DDT compressor. DDT function will be covered in more
detail later in this manual.
MODE SWITCH (11)
This switch is used to select either STEREO or BRIDGE mode operation. When BRIDGE mode 1s selected, the
channel B LED power indicator will go out indicating bridge mode has been selected. Accidental selection of
this mode could damage loudspeakers. The BRIDGE mode will be covered in more detail later in this manual.
SPEAKER OUTPUTS (12)
Two 1/4" jacks and 5 way binding post speaker output terminals are provided. All these outputs are in parallel,
hence the speaker connection cables can be terminated with 1/4" phone plugs. banana plugs, or stripped wires for
use in the binding post terminals. For sustained high power applications, the use of the binding post terminals are
recommended; however, care must be exercised to assure correct speaker phasing. Regardless of what connec-
tions are used, the typical parallel speaker load should always be limited to 2 ohms per channel or 4 ohms
BRIDGE mode for any application. Operation at loads of 4 ohms per channel or 8 ohms BRIDGE mode is more
desirable for sustained operation applications due to the fact that the amplifier will run much cooler at this load.
Operation above 4 ohms per channel and even open circuit conditions can always be considered safe; however,
any sustained operation at loads below 2 ohms could result in temporary channel shut down due to the thermal
limits and/or the amp fault circuits.
MAINS POWER SOURCE (120V products only) (13)
The VX-1.5K is fitted with a single heavy duty #14 AWG three conductor line cord and a conventional AC plug
with a large ground pin. It should be connected to an independent mains circuit capable of supporting at least 15
AMPS continuously or greater. This is particularly critical for sustained high power operation. If the socket used
does not have a ground pin, a suitable ground lift adaptor should be used and the third wire grounded properly.
Never break off the ground pin on the VX-1.5K power amplifier. The use of extension cords should be avoided.
but if necessary, always use a three-wire type with at least a #14 AWG wire size. The use of lighter wire will
severely limit the power capability of this amplifier. Always use a qualified electrician to install any necessary
electrical equipment. To prevent the risk of shock or fire hazard, always be sure that the amp 1s properly
grounded,
GROUND LIFT SWITCH (14)
This switch is used to disconnect the VX-1.3K’s “signal ground” (both input and output) from the “chassis
ground.” Chassis ground is the chassis itself, which is electrically grounded through the rack mounting screws to
the external rack system and through the mains line cord via the large ground pin to the mains ground. It is often
advantageous to “lift” the signal ground from chassis ground to eliminate a “ground loop” which has caused
unwanted ground current in the signal cables between the external preamp and this power amplifier. Such
conditions can create excessive hum levels in the power amplifier output and render the system useless in low
level applications. In this case “lifting” the ground should solve this hum problem. Ground lift is selected when
the switch is in the right or “LIFT” position. If lifting the ground does not eliminate a particular hum problem,
then we recommend you defeat the ground lift feature. Please note that using this ground lift feature still leaves
the chassis itself grounded electrically through the mains line cord. Having the chassis grounded avoids any
possibility of an electrical shock or a fire hazard. This ground lift feature should never be confused with the
practice of “floating” the large ground pin at the AC mains receptacle to eliminate a ground loop. Floating the
ground pin on any electrical equipment is just asking for trouble!!!
INSTALLATION AND CONNECTION
The Peavey VX-1.5K commercial series power amplifier is designed for durability in commercial installations
and the quality of performance required in studio and home applications. The unit is a standard rack-mount
configuration, 3 1/2" high and is cooled by automatic two-speed internal fans. All the input and output
connections are on the back panel. The front panel contains LED indicators for power and DDT activation,
detented/calibrated sensitivity controls, and a mains power switch.
INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL INSTALLATIONS
For commercial and other installations, where sustained high power operation is required, the VX-1.5K should
be mounted in a standard 19" rack. It is not necessary to leave rack space between each amplifier in the stack,
since the fan pulls air in from the rear and exhausts the hot air out the front. An adequate “COOL” air supply
must be provided for the amplifier when rack-mounted. The internal fan must have a source of air that 1s not
preheated by other equipment. The amplifier will start up in “LOW SPEED” fan operation, and will normally
stay at low speed operation unless sustained high power operating levels were to occur. Then as the amplifier’s
“HEAT SINKS" heat up, the automatic thermal sensing circuitry will cause high speed operation to occur.
Depending upon signal conditions and amp loading, high speed fan operation may continue. or it may cycle
continuously between high and low. This situation 15 quite normal.
If cooling is inadequate due to preheated air, or a reduction of air flow occurs due to blockage of the amplifier
inlet/outlet ports, or if the amplifier is severely overloaded or short circuited, then the amplifier thermal sensing
system may cause temporary shutdown of that particular channel. This is indicated by the channel power LED on
the front panel ceasing to illuminate. Depending upon available cooling air, operation should be restored in that
channel relatively quickly, and the power LED will be illuminated. In any event corrective action should be
taken to determine the cause of the thermal shutdown. If the amplifier is not severely overloaded or shorted, and
air flow is normal in and out of the unit, then steps should be taken to provide a cooler environment for all the
amplifiers. As a general rule, the cooler electronic equipment is operated, the longer its useful service life.
STUDIO AND HOME INSTALLATION
In most low to medium power applications, the VX-1.5K can be mounted in any configuration. It is desirable
that, if at all possible, the unit be located at the top of an equipment stack. This will prevent possible overheating
of any sensitive equipment by the hot air rising from the power amplifier. As a general rule, most home and
studio requirements will never cause high speed fan operation. If it does, however, this may indicate that you
have not taken the necessary steps to provide adequate cooling. Remember, closed up in a cabinet, the VX-1.5K
will have severe cooling problems, even at low power levels. Again, inadvertent short circuit or sustained over-
loaded usage could also cause temporary thermal shutdown. Also, most home wiring and electrical circuits are
only 15 AMPS. Two VX-1.5Ks could cause a power panel 15 AMP circuit breaker to trip if a severe overload
occurs.
BRIDGE MODE
The bridge mode on stereo amplifiers is often misunderstood as to the actual operation and usage. In basic terms,
when a two channel amplifier is operated in the BRIDGE mode, it is converted into a single channel unit with a
POWER RATING equal to the sum of both channel's power ratings, and at a LOAD RATING of twice that of
the single channel rating. In this case the VX-1.5K is rated at 750 W RMS per channel into 2 ohms. Thus the
BRIDGE RATING is 1500 W RMS into 4 ohms (minimum load). Bridge mode operation is accomplished by
placing the mode switch in the “BRIDGE” position, connecting the load between the RED binding posts of each
channel, and using channel A as the input channel. All the channel B functions as an input are defeated and they
serve no purpose in bridge mode.
A popular application for BRIDGE mode operation is to drive sound distribution systems in large public address
applications. In this mode, the VX-1.5K power amplifier can actually drive 70 volt systems directly without
using expensive matching transformers. The real advantage of such an approach is primarily cost.
70 volt distribution systems are very common in applications where rather large numbers of relatively small
loudspeakers are used for BACKGROUND MUSIC AND PAGING. Such systems require the use of 70 volt
TRANSFORMERS at each loudspeaker. Another common use for the BRIDGE mode 1s in SUBWOOFER
applications where very high power levels are required to adequately reproduce the extreme low frequencies.
Such enclosures usually contain 2 or 4 loudspeakers to handle the power levels involved. For bridge mode
usage, the enclosure impedance must be 4 or 8 ohms; never below 4 ohms! Also make sure that the enclosure
can handle 1500 watts reliably.
DDT COMPRESSION
Peavey’s patented DDT compression system enables the sound man to maximize the performance of the ampli-
fier/speaker combination by preventing the power amp from running out of headroom (clipping). This compres-
sion system is activated by a very unique circuit that senses signal conditions that might overload the amplifier
and activates compression (reduces the amp gain) when clipping is imminent. Threshold of compression then 1s
clipping itself and no specific threshold control is used. This technique effectively utilizes every precious watt
available for the power amplifier to reproduce the signal while at the same time minimizes clipping and distor-
tion, and thus significantly reduces the potential of loudspeaker degradation and damage. The DDT system is
automatic, hands-off approach to the problem of power amplifier clipping. Since the VX-1.5K power amplifier
uses circuit breakers for the over-current protection, the DDT compression system plays even a more important
roll in continuous performance by preventing each channel from clipping and overload. Notice continuous
operation at clipping can cause the circuit breaker to trip, but with the DDT activated this problem is minimized.
For this reason you should always have the DDT compression system enabled.
