PVs 18 Vented Powered Bass Subwoofer
With over 57 years of experience manufacturing sound reinforcement equipment, Peavey is proud to introduce its new PVs series of subwoofers. From the punchy and portable PVs 15 to the extreme deep bass of the PVs 18, these speakers are perfect for live applications. Where compact and portable are the primary requirements, the amazing new PVs 12 fits the bill.
All PVs subwoofers use high-density materials in their construction to ensure all the energy from the drivers is directed to the audience and not absorbed by the cabinet. Our proprietary drivers and power amps ensure maximum SPL while maintaining the legendary reliability Peavey products are known for.
Built-in crossovers and high-pass outputs ensure our subwoofers can be used in almost any application with a wide variety of speakers and our proprietary Bass Enhancement feature, which allows our speakers to outperform any other subwoofer in their class.
Convenient features such as steel handles and rugged locking casters make the PVs perfect for the road, while the compact PVs 12 makes hiding a subwoofer for an installation easier than ever. Whether you are on the road or in a club, church, restaurant, or bar, the PVs subs are the perfect solution for reliable low end.
PVs 18 Subwoofer
The Peavey PVs 18 Sub is a compact vented powered subwoofer system utilizing a 18" heavy-duty woofer, coupled to a DSP controlled power amplifier with 1,000 watts peak available power. The full-length black perforated steel grille provides protection and a professional appearance, along with the sturdy steel handles for moving the Sub. Large heavy-duty locking casters on the rear provide for easy transport on suitable surfaces.
Features include internal line-level crossover with two high-pass outputs, and one full-range thru output. Peavey's new switchable bass enhancer for extra bass punch from low frequency program material is incorporated for maximum versatility.
A threaded pole-mount system provides a sturdy and stable platform to mount a suitably equipped speaker system above the subwoofer.
The PA two-way powered speaker series are an excellent partner for the PVs 18 Sub. The PVs 18 Sub speaker system power amplifier providing the power is a low-distortion reliable fan-cooled unit providing a total of 1,000W peak available power for the system. The power supply for the power amp is a switch mode type for low weight and high efficiency. The amplifier features DSP processing for the crossover functions, compression and limiting, and the low-frequency EQ.
Input is via a combo female XLR and 1/4" TRS phone jack with balanced input to the preamp/EQ electronics, and a gain control. A pair of High-Pass Outputs in the form of male XLR jacks provides a buffered and balanced output signal for satellite speakers to carry the high range of the music. A Full-Range Thru output has a male XLR connector. These outputs allow linking of additional speaker systems, or feed of the signal to other devices.
