Peavey ECS-1800X PA Cabinet Speaker Crossover 1800 Hz 2-Way
will it work with a 2way full range cabent
I have a E1520 Euro speaker box and the crossover burn out and Im looking to replace it with this one. Thanks
This is not a good match.The literature for the E1520 shows that the factory crossover is 2800 hz. If you replace it with this crossover, you will allow almost a full octave of lower frequencies to reach the horn driver. The main risk is that the lower frequency power and/or excursion will damage or destroy your HF driver. In addition to that risk, you create an unpredictable situation by sending that octave through a horn and driver not originally intended to reproduce them. The dispersion and level-vs-frequency evenness could become quite odd in that range.A crossover with an adequate power rating that is closer to the original crossover frequency would predict a happier result. I would not have the same reservations about a 2400 or 2500 crossover point, for example.

Would this work in an old Peavey SP5G?
Can it replace the original panel which has 4 1/4 inputs (2 Full Range, 1 High, 1 Low)?
The crossover will definitely work with the speaker. The crossover and basic slope are correct.I cannot see on the literature available to me if the cutout dimensions are exactly the same, but it looks possible that they are.If you contact Peavey, they probably would tell you if the crossover is exactly the same as the original except for the update to speakon connectors. That also looks possible.If you have a pair of the SP5Gs and replace both crossovers, you are good to go without question.If you only replace one side, you might have a somewhat unbalanced pair unless you get assurance from Peavey that this unit is electrically identical to the original crossover.

Hi, Can this cross-over handle a box with 2x 15" and a 1 1/2" horn
This crossover is intended to be used with 8 ohm components, so as long as the combined impedance of each section is 8 ohms, and the tweeter can play down to under 1800 hz it should work.One example would be an 8 ohm tweeter and two 16 ohm woofers wired in parallel, or you could also use two 4 ohm woofers wired in series.

I want to replace my old Peavey SP1G crossover with ECS series crossover.
Which ECS crossover is recommended / matching for SP1G, ECS-1000X or ECS- 1800X?I'm also interested to replace the original my SP1G woofer withPeavey speaker model: 1508-8 HE BWX to upgrade the output power.
The best match for this speaker would be the ECS-1800X. This will change the sound characteristic of the speaker so replacing both would be recommended. That woofer will also work fine.
