Meridian, MS (August 30, 2006)–Peavey has released the SP 5.5P, an updated and powered version of its SP 5 loudspeaker enclosure. The SP 5.5P features a 15-inch Peavey Black Widow loudspeaker with a 4-inch voice coil and field-replaceable basket.
Peavey’s SP 5.5PThese enclosures also feature RXTM 22 compression drivers with ferrofluid cooling and patented Quadratic Throat Waveguide technology, said to yield reduced horn distortion and clearer sound. In addition, the horn’s asymmetrical design aims the sound down to the audience.
The power section features a biamplified, 1,000-watt power amplifier with Peavey’s DDT speaker protection, 1/4-inch and Neutrik Speakon I/O and a Loop In/Out jack for daisy-chaining multiple units. Nine-ply Baltic birch construction utilizing extensive internal bracing “produces far tighter bass response than plastic speaker boxes, especially below 200 Hz.”
The SP 5.5P also includes built-in stand-mount adapters and black-carpet covering. The Peavey SP 5.5P enclosure will be available in Q3 2006.
