ANAHEIM, Calif. (NAMM Exhibit 5740, Hall B) — Peavey Electronics®, one of the world's largest manufacturers and suppliers of musical instruments and professional sound equipment, proudly announces the new SP® BX Series loudspeaker enclosures. Featuring the incredibly durable new HammerHead™ exterior coating, exclusive technologies and superior components, the Peavey SP BX enclosures are the toughest SP loudspeakers ever made.
For more than three decades, Peavey SP Series loudspeaker enclosures have been the proving ground for many of Peavey's enduring innovations in sound reinforcement, including Black Widow® loudspeakers with field-replaceable baskets. Peavey SP Series enclosures are built to last in the U.S.A. with exclusive technologies that specialize in clear sound and reliability.
Durable Peavey Black Widow® series loudspeakers are the centerpiece of the SP BX Series, designed with Kevlar®-impregnated cones and 4" edge-wound aluminum ribbon voice coils wound on Kapton™ formers for high efficiency and sensitivity. With die-cast aluminum alloy frames, a vented magnet structure that allows superior cooling at high drive levels, and heavy-duty, spring-loaded terminals with industry-standard color coding, Black Widow loudspeakers are everything you expect from a professional loudspeaker.
Every enclosure in the SP BX Series features Peavey's exclusive field-replaceable speaker basket design, an exclusive feature that allows users to replace blown cones on the gig with ease by simply removing three screws to replace the cone and basket assembly. Only Peavey speakers are made to the precise tolerances required for field replacement.
SP BX Series enclosures offer clarity and efficiency in the high-frequency range through our specially designed 2" RX22™ titanium diaphragm compression driver with ferrofluid cooling. This driver is coupled to our patented Quadratic Throat Waveguide™ to provide smooth, even response, low distortion and excellent HF dispersion. The 90° x 40° horn has an asymmetrical vertical polar response, so it aims the sound directly at the audience members and minimizes ceiling reflections for clarity and gain before feedback (10° up x 30° down).
The Peavey RX22 driver also features the patented Radialinear Planar Phase Correction System, which provides a smooth and extended high-frequency response by preventing cancellations and interference in the horn.
The SP BX Series includes the following models: SP 2BX, SP 3BX, SP 4BX, SP 5BX, SP 6BX, SP 118BX, SP 218BX, SP FHBX, SP 12M and SP 15M.
The Peavey SP® BX Series loudspeaker enclosures are available now from authorized Peavey retailers. Please visit www.peavey.com/dealerlocator to find a dealer near you.
