SPi 8 8 inch 600-Watt Subwoofer
The SPi 8 is a two-way speaker system comprised of a premium quality 8 inch woofer and a conical horn, with exponential flare, loaded with a high quality compression driver.
The SPi 8 enclosure is trapezoidal-shaped, which reduces the buildup of standing waves inside the enclosure to minimize mid-bass and mid-range coloration. The enclosure is constructed of plywood, and is coated with a textured black finish. A full-length, wrap-around-perforated steel grille protects the front of the enclosure. Multiple fly points are provided to allow overhead rigging.
The two-way system consists of the following driver components: a premium quality 8-inch woofer. The woofer is capable of 300 Watts of program power handling (AES Std 2-1984). The high frequencies are controlled by a high quality compression driver.
Full-range input connection to the system is made via screw terminal barrier strip and one four-pin twist lock connector in parallel. The internal passive crossover features the Peavey-exclusive Sound Guard protection circuit for the tweeter and an advanced topology crossover with high-performance components to provide strong power handling and reliability. Sound Guard provides long- and medium-term driver overload protection without impairing musical transients or dynamics on either the mid-range or the high frequencies.
The crossover provides driver roll-off and protection as well as driver EQ for the woofer and horn for a clean, clear and smooth response. High quality, reliable crossover components include film capacitors and high-current inductors. The optimal integration of the crossover with the selected drivers results in a smooth frequency response from 89 Hz to 17.7 kHz.
Despite its compact dimensions, this system can produce good sound levels and handle 300 watts program power, resulting in good articulation and long-term reliability.
