Product Description

Moving your PA around is unavoidable when you're a gigging artist, but Peavey's PR-12N loudspeakers can help lighten the load. Think about it: just to play one gig, you've got to pull your PA out of the rehearsal space and load it in the van. When you get to the venue, you lug the speakers inside, then set them up on stage. Play the show, yank the speakers off the stands, and back to the van they go. One more trip, returning to where you started, and you're finally done. Sounds like a lot of work for a few hours of glory, especially if you're touring from city to city. Wouldn't it be great to live the dream without all the heavy lifting? There's no way around the PA, but Peavey's under-30-pound PR-12N speakers deliver 400 watts program and 800 watts peak. That means huge sound without all the excess baggage.

Strong, Light, Polypropylene Enclosure

At just 29 pounds each, PR-12N speakers are perfect for the working musician -- saving time, energy, and trips to the van. While some loudspeakers use small, underpowered drivers to save weight, Peavy takes a different approach. The enclosure is molded using a strong, lightweight polypropylene. This material is rigid and durable to resist the road abuse all gig-worthy gear must face, yet light enough to accommodate full-sized drivers and still make weight. Heavy wooden cabinets just can't compare. You won't believe something so light can sound so good - until you hear then in action.

12-inch Woofer

Plug these passive speakers into your favorite power amp, and the first thing you'll notice is the rich, full-range bass response. This comes from the PR-12N's beefy twelve-inch woofer. Big drivers like this one aren't usually practical for lightweight speakers, because of their massive magnet structure. With its heavy-duty two-inch voice coil, this woofer delivers all your low-end tone to the crowd with warmth and punch.

Titanium-Diaphragm Tweeter

The bass is definitely impressive, and Peavey's RX14 tweeter handles the highs with the same level of professionalism. Its 1.4-inch titanium diaphragm offers clean, detailed treble frequencies through the upper-end of the spectrum. The sound is focused through Peavey's constant-directivity horn, which is molded right into the enclosure. This horn helps spread out the sound waves, increasing the projection and improving the sonic imaging. If you run your front-of-house mix in stereo, you'll hear ping-pong delays, sweeping echoes, and other effects come through with clarity and precision. The PR-12N's sturdy crossover evens-out frequencies between the two-way drivers, providing smooth, balanced midrange response. No one wants lightweight speakers that don't sound good. Peavey gives you the best of both.

Plenty of Power for Any Size Venue

If you gig regularly, you never know what the next venue will bring your way. Some rooms are small and intimate, packing the crowd in tight, while others are much larger, looking empty even when all your fans show up. You need to fill the space with sound, regardless of its size. That means PA speakers with big-time wattage. Rated at 400 watts of program power and 800 watt peaks, PR-12N loudspeakers have the volume and headroom to fit any situation. Crank the music up at the larger halls for distortion-free sound reproduction, or drop it down low at the local coffee shop. You can use your PA to add a little vocal boost over an acoustic guitar, or run the whole band direct for a tight, controlled mix. Either way, these speakers give you detailed, accurate sound at any volume.

Long-Lasting Reliability at a Low Price

Since the PA system is what connects your music and your audience, you've got to know it's always ready to go. Fortunately, Peavey's solid reputation for long-lasting value is clearly evident in PR-series speakers. For starters, onboard tweeter-protection circuitry helps guard against damage from feedback, dropped microphones, and other unexpected surges in power. Next, the twelve-inch woofer is covered with a steel-mesh grille, shielding the speaker from unfortunate accidents involving mic stands, guitar necks, and the occasional beer bottle. It is powder-coated to provide a professional appearance on stage, even under the harshest conditions. These speakers are a fantastic deal at this price, and you can count on rock-solid performance for years to come.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (53 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Solid for the price"
Sound: We use a pair of these as stage monitors for live performance. They sound good. Great for the money! Quality: Light weight and plenty durable. A jack unscrewed after a year's worth of use -- but was easy to repair. You can't seem to hurt these speakers. Value: I can't think of a better speaker at this price range. I also own JBL Eons (passive) and they are twice the price, although they sound a bit better. But not twice as good. Manufacturer Support: I needed a minor repair (see above) and went to the local dealer, even though I bought them online. Because it's Peavey, there are ample local dealerships who are helpful, if you ever have a problem. The Wow Factor: very practical. Overall: I have owned these for almost two years -- no problems. I expect to keep them for quite a while. I can't imagine anything else will be this good in this price range.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "good value. for the money how could you go wrong. It is a PEAVEY! It will last forever and take all of the abuse of live sound!"
Sound: Sounds very clear. I have owned Peavey's for over 20 years and they still manufacture quality speakers. Crisp clean sound. Lack some low-end response, but I knew that before I bought them. Using a Soundcraft Gigrac 1000. It would most likely sound good with most quality PA heads & mixers. Feature: could use speak-on inputs, but there goes the price! I was on a budget and the 1/4" plug-ins are OK. Ease of Use: Very easy to get the right sound if you have the right PA. Quality: So far very good quality. Very light to set up on speaker stands which is why I bought them. Value: How could you go wrong with Peavey? Best quality for the dollar. Manufacturer Support: Its Peavey. I can be assured I will never have to call them. There product stands the test of time. The Wow Factor: It does the job. Overall: It is a Peavey, so I know it will last 20 years. It could use some more bottom end, but it works fine for a 3 piece band.
