Winter NAMM: Versarray Launches Peavey Into Line Array Market
ANAHEIM, Calif. (Winter NAMM exhibit #5740)- Peavey proudly introduces its Versarray Series line array enclosures. Featuring ribbon drivers, neodymium magnets, exclusive angle-adjustment technology and multiple rigging options, Peavey Versarray enclosures mark the company's bold debut into the high-end line array market.
Versarray Series enclosure modules utilize special bracket-and-pin flying hardware in a highly flexible rigging system that allows full articulation of the top boxes. With this rigging system, users can adjust two modules away from each other in 2 ½-degree increments from 0 to 15 degrees, providing for a classic straight-line array configuration or a number of angling options.
Peavey offers an optional mounting pole for the Versarray 118 subwoofer that can support a two-box array, while the 218 subwoofer has an optional ground-stacking kit that will support up to four modules and allow for full articulation. In addition, a crankable tower lift co-designed with Vermette can elevate up to six modules 13 feet above a 218 sub, then fold down for easy transport and storage. These items are available as accessories to Versarray enclosures.
The Versarray 112 ribbon-driver line array utilizes a high-performance, lightweight 12' Neo Black Widow woofer featuring a 4' voice coil with a neodymium magnet structure in a 13-ply Baltic birch enclosure. The Versarray 112 offers extreme versatility and performance in modular coverage of small- to medium-sized venues (10,000 capacity), and is intended for use with Versarray 118 or 218 subs. Sound Guard, Peavey's proprietary protection circuitry, provides long- and medium-term driver overload protection without impairing musical transients or dynamics.
Designed for the most demanding pro-audio applications, the Versarray 118 and 218 are vented subwoofers incorporating Peavey's ultra-high power Lo Max 18' woofer into a 13-ply Baltic birch cabinet. The 218 model also features Peavey's patented UniVent venting system, which uses an exclusive process to literally pump air through the enclosure, maintaining cool operating temperatures, increasing reliability and reducing power compression under heavy continuous-drive conditions.
Peavey Versarray Series enclosures are available now from authorized Peavey retailers.
