I recently bought a used Peavey Cirrus BXP from a nearby guitarcenter, and i'm not sure how long the batteries are supposed to last. It runs on 2 9v's, but the batteries only last about a month before the sound starts to get seriously distorted; i took the batteries out and measured them with a multimeter and they're both at around 5v.
I'm unplugging it after i finish, and I practice maybe 1 and a half hours a day. am I doing something wrong or could it be a problem with the instrument?

Cirrus' have been known to have this problem before - they're something wrong with the circuit so has a result eats batteries like there is no tomorrow. Take the bass back and get your money back. One guy I know had the same problem with his and had to wait 3 months for his Cirrus to be fixed and when he got sent a new bass instead, that had the same problem!
You can't comment on gear until you have tried it!

Maybe its because your running a pre-amp thats to powered by two 9 volt batteries with two 5 volt ones.

what kind of battery life do you guys get?

Playing regularly with my old Washburn that took 2 9vs, I'd change every 3 or 4 months. If I was playing a gig, I'd change if the batteries were close to 3 months old just in case.
What this sounds like is a wiring problem draining the battery.
