Product Profile: Peavey PVX Series Loudspeakers

If you have not yet seen Peavey’s new PVX Series of active and passive loudspeakers, they are definitely worth the look! As the culmination of decades of R&D and experience building the best portable, all-in-one sound reinforcement solutions, Peavey has really gone all out to make their PVX line rugged, compact, lightweight and affordable all while still producing excellent sound quality. The line features both active (powered) and passive (unpowered) speakers in a variety of sizes as well as a powered subwoofer, providing a full range of sound applications. The PVX Series are designed to deliver high fidelity and impressive power with heavy-duty, premium Peavey woofers with 2-3/8-inch voice coils for the lows and low-mids, while the Peavey RX14™ 1.4-inch titanium diaphragm compression driver, coupled to a constant directivity horn, handles the highs and mid-highs. The PVX active enclosures bring up to 800 watts of crystal-clear highs and deep low end, while using exclusive DDT™ to prevent distortion. The PVX 12 and PVX 15 passive loudspeakers will also handle 800 watts peak power so you are never left wanting for more. Peavey PVX enclosures are housed in a durable, injection-molded enclosure that includes a pole mount, three multi-point flying locations and a tilt-back design to accommodate use as a personal monitor. A black powder-coated steel grille provides driver protection and a clean, professional appearance. The PVXp Sub’s enclosure includes a pole mount for additional PVX speakers. Runzo’s Music World currently has the PVX line in stock in 10″, 12″ and 15″ enclosures as well as  subwoofers. If you are looking for feature-packed P.A. solutions at an affordable price be...
