Peavey Rockola 6.5 6.5" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker

Peavey Rockola 6.5 6.5" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker
Peavey Rockola 6.5 6.5" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peavey RockolaSuper sound but doesn't come with a grill. Excellent choice for my garage. Good size and easy to mount.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little speakers. Easy to customizeI bought 12 of these. It was easy to install a metal grill . The face of these are aluminum. I used some self tapping metal screws with 1/4 20 nuts for stand offs. Also used a cordless drill with 1" paddle bit to install 2 speakon connectors in each. I kept the terminal plate, and rewired this to make 16 ohm pairs. Very simple to make mounting plates for rigging, with the many T nuts that are built in the enclosure.I think i will purchase 12 more, before these are gone. I am using these for delay zones and small arena sound systems. I made some rigging out of aluminum to hang off of truss. I dont mind the high end cut off, not noticeable at my age.. LOL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Unit!I just received two of these today as i took the advantage of the wicked deal! But two slight issues, they have tons of leaks which is easily fixed with gasketing tape and the driver is a woofer so i am running tweeters within the same enclosure and create a two-way system. Other than that very well done by Peavey!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Had to try them, and I like themI was looking for single driver speakers for my TV system main left and right speakers. I don't like using multi-way speakers for regular TV viewing because they tend to muddy up the dialog and have too much bass. I have some very large DIY tri-amped speakers for watching concert videos or movies, so I was looking for something for regular TV only. I compared them on my studio desk to an old Radio Shack Lineaum 5" 2-way speaker and these don't have as much low-end or high-end, but that did not concern me. Where these excel is midrange clarity and blending in with the rest of my 6.1 surround system. The quality of the cabinet and driver appears to be very good. The mounting options worked out great for my situation. I didn't like the input screw terminals so the first thing I did was remove the terminal cup and modify it for a Speakon chassis mount connector. I installed the 2-pole part number 092-059 because I had a pair on hand, but I would recommend the 4-pole part number 092-067 only because I have a lot of 4-pole connectors and cables. I forgot the 4-pole male won't fit the 2-pole chassis mount. I would only recommended this modification if you are confident with a Dremel tool.

Will these speakers work as studio monitors?

Asked by: dani537
These would work well as stand mount stage monitors, but I would not recommend them for high resolution studio playback.

How much room do you have between the top or the bottom of the 6.5'' driver to mount a tweeter?

I have a low watt vintage tube amp that "overproduces" in the high frequency range but otherwise sounds good. I currently only own two and three way cabs and the highs are just too harsh. Do you think a single driver system could help solve this problem?

For those of us in the "Hi-Fi" single driver camp, would these make a pair for that use, as long as a sub fills in the low end?

Asked by: David B
They can certainly be used for that application, yes.
