Distributor Barnes & Mullins has announced the UK release of Peavey Electronics’ Dark Matter powered speaker enclosures.
The manufacturer says that thanks to its advanced DSP-equipped power section, the Dark Matter series ‘outperforms any existing enclosure in its category,’ and has ‘revolutionised the working man’s loudspeaker' in a similar way to the SP1 back in 1975.
The high-SPL enclosures feature modern styling and come in four available models: the DM 112, DM 115, DM 118 Subwoofer and DM 115 Subwoofer.
The Dark Matter LCD display and associated selector knob allow users to choose various parameters of operation for the DSP-based EQ. This includes bass and treble control access, as well as EQ pre-sets for different applications or speaker positions/locations, providing users with a flexible method of configuring the powered speaker system for a specific use with minimal time and effort.
The fan-cooled DM 112 and DM 115 feature Peavey's Quadratic Throat Waveguide technology that helps deliver ‘pristine and precise’ sound. The Dark Matter series enclosures are built with steel grilles and injection moulded cabinets, with their design allowing for use as floor monitors or pole-mounted speakers.
