Peavey PR 12 12" 2-Way Molded Enclosure PA Speaker System
Peavey PR 12 12" 2-Way Molded Enclosure PA Speaker System is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from FailureSo I ordered a pair of these speakers from parts express.... always a good expierence with P.F. Not so good with Peavy! Five minutes into my listening pleasure and one speaker started getting this rattle sound /cone putter if you will. I had a 12 inch peavy black widow on my shelf and decided to try swaping out the original to see if infact it was the driver...Yep! It was the driver. Since I added a speakon plate to the enclouser I probably have know recourse as to getting a new one. So now I replaced the other driver in cab two with a new Black Widow so they could at least be the same in sound and perfpormance. Do they sound better? Yes they have more punch for sure! Bur I basically bought two speaker enclosures for $400.00 It just doesn't add up in dollars. Like I said it may be a fluke, But it cost me just the same!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FOH OK When used RIGHTI needed a small but punchy system to handle 3 &4 piece variety bands in a venue seating about 250 average. The club had some older Yamaha 18" subs and an old Peavey CS800 power amp but nothing else. I purchased 4 of these PR12 speakers. We fabricated a bracket to allow the array to work and hang two speakers from one HD speaker stand. The PR12s have brass inserts for bolt mounting and these allowed a very sinple and solid fabrication. The CS800 has sockets for an insert fixed frequency crossovers so I secured one at 250 Hz. I used channel A for the subs and channel B to drive all 4- PR12s in a series/parallel wiring to maintain 4 ohm loading.WOW, for not much investment to system is impressive and 100db. to around 115 db. spl @ 10' It is for the most part clean and tignt for most bands. I am convinced that it is hard to beat this little molded speaker for the size, weight and price unless it would be it's biggger brother, the PR15.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Speakers can handle power,and sound good...These speakers are exceptional for the price, I own a pair of EV Speakers, which are perfection; but I am very impressed with both the tonal quality, and the power handling capabilities, ( using my pyle 3000 watt DJ receiver...very good

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A real gem for a small venuThese speakers really sound nice for a 2 way system, the tweeter crossover point is smooth.A nice solution for inexpensive, pleasant sound reproduction at a house party or small bar.Have used these in a bar setting, powered by the juke box amplifier and suspended from the ceiling, worked great.

Peavey PR 12 12" 2-Way Molded Enclosure PA Speaker System

Hi. I can't seem to find the diameter of the pole mount insert. Secondly, what tripod speaker stand do you have that will work with these? thank you

Asked by: nsop
These use a 1-3/8 inch pole mount. Just about all of the tripod speaker stands we offer should work but some examples are #233-200 and #248-9892

What type of connector do I need for this speaker? Is it a 1/4" stereo or mono?

Asked by: albi1cnobi1

Are these speakers wheather proof? Our events are run rain or shine

Asked by: Frilee
No, this speaker is not suitable for use in inclement environments. You will want to look for a speaker that specifically states that it is suitable for outdoor use. Alternately, typical PA speakers can be mounted outdoors in protected enclosures, but it is not recommended to leave them outside exposed to the elements for prolonged periods.
