Peavey has unveiled its new SP 2P powered speaker system, intended for public address and musical playback.
The system is based around two switching power amplifiers that provide 1000W peak available power into the 4-ohm load of the woofer, and 500W peak available power into the 8-ohm load of the tweeter. The power supply for both amps is a switch mode type, and both amps utilise Peavey’s DDT compression technology which is designed to prevent clipping.
The SP 2P has a 15” Black Widow BWX series woofer, but is outfitted with a long throw voice coil. A 2” RX22CT titanium diaphragm compression driver is coupled to a quadratic throat waveguide and has a coverage pattern of 100° horizontal by 50° vertical.
On the back panel, there are two independent mixed input channels, each providing a balanced input to the preamp/EQ electronics and a level control. Each channel has one combo female XLR and 1/4” TRS phone jack, switchable between mic-level and line-level sensitivity, while channel 2 has an added 3.5 mm media jack.
A line-out section has male XLR connectors, and the Thru outputs allow linking of additional speaker systems or feed of the signal to a powered subwoofer. A rotary knob allows the user to select and choose menu options, such as the dynamic bass boost and 9-band EQ, on the LCD display screen. The speakers weigh roughly 60 lbs and measure 30” high by 20” wide by 20” deep.
