The new SP12M is a two-way floor monitor speaker system comprised of a 12-inch Black Widow spider frame BWX woofer with a Kevlar/carbon fiber impregnated cone and an enclosure made from nine-ply Baltic birch. The thoroughly braced cabinet is covered with a durable black carpet and provided with a heavy duty perforated steel grille with a dark gray powder coating. An SA1 stand mount adapter is built in for side fill or PA use.
The low frequencies are provided by the 12-inch Black Widow BWX woofer with a Kevlar/carbon fiber impregnated cone and dust cap. Capable of over 500 Watts of continuous power handling (AES Std. 2-1984), the woofer can handle a lot of power, which also results in very low power compression. The high frequencies are handled by a 2 in. Rx 22 titanium diaphram compression driver utilizing ferrofluid cooling. This superb driver is coupled to a constant directivity horn with smooth, even response and good high frequency dispersion. The Rx22 driver features the Radialinear Planar Phase Correction System (US Patent 6,064,745), which provides smoother and extended high frequency response.
Input connection to the system is made via two 1/4-inch phone jacks and a 4-pin Neutrik in parallel. The internal passive crossover features the Sound Guard III tweeter protection circuit and an advanced topology crossover with high performance components to provide high power handling and reliability. Sound Guard, Peavey's proprietary high-frequency driver protection circuitry, provides long- and medium-term driver overload protection without impairing musical transients or dynamics. The crossover provides driver roll off and protection as well as driver EQ for the woofer and horn for clean, clear, smooth response. High quality, reliable crossover components include polypropylene capacitors and high current inductors. The optimal integration of the crossover with the selected drivers results in a smooth frequency response from 108 Hz to 14 kHz, making it highly appropriate for monitor applications.
Despite its compact dimensions, this system can put out some very high sound levels and handle 1000 Watts of undistorted amplifier power program, resulting in clean monitoring with high articulation and reliability.
