Peavey EU Series Active Enclosures with IPR Amp Technology

FOH Staff • New Gear • April 1, 2010

Peavey recently introduced its EU Series class D powered loudspeaker enclosures, including the EU 112D and EU 115D two-way loudspeakers and EU 118D subwoofer.
The EU 112D and EU 115D powered enclosures showcase the new 12" Peavey Black Widow BWX-DVC Neo loudspeaker with dual voice coil, push-pull technology and a neodymium magnet. A Woofer Servo circuit monitors back-EMF and controls cone motion, making the cone's movement mirror the driving signal from the power amp and reducing distortion, enhancing high power handling and low-frequency attack.


The EU 112D and EU 115D feature Peavey's 2" RX22 titanium compression driver and Quadratic Throat Waveguide horn in an asymmetrical design providing 100° H x 50° V (+15, -35) coverage. The driver is positioned in line with the horn geometry to ensure clear sound reproduction. With Peavey's IPR power amplifier technology, the EU 112D and EU 115D produce 1,200 total watts of power with a lightweight switch-mode power supply and a high-speed class D topology.


The EU input section features two input channels and a line output, with a mix of I/O options such as combination XLR-π" jacks, RCA and install-ready Phoenix connections. Input channels 1 and 2 also have mic/line source switches and gain controls. The Auto-Off function automatically shuts off the power when it no longer detects a signal, while the Line Out allows the user to chain multiple units or send the input signal to another source.


The DynaQ section offers advanced tone controls such as Bass Enhancer, which is an overall loudness boost; a Music/Speech switch that provides optimized EQ settings for each audio type; and Contour, specially configured for program music. A module bay allows for future expansion including Wireless I/O, Delay/Time Adjustment, Mixer Expander, Ethernet I/O and more.


The EU 118D features a 1,000-watt Peavey IPR power section and a Low Rider 18 woofer in a highly rugged enclosure. The EU 118D also features a fourth order Linkwitz-Riley crossover that has eight selectable low-frequency crossover points, a crossover in/out switch, low frequency enhancement, and a high-pass output to send the signal out to an EU powered high/mid enclosure.


The EU 112D, EU 115D and EU 118D are constructed of lightweight 13-layer plywood with Hammer Head polyurethane finish. The EU 112D and EU 115D have three built-in flying points and a tilt-back design to facilitate use as a personal monitor, while all three models are equipped with pole mounts.


The Peavey EU 112D (MSRP: $1,199.99), EU 115D (MSRP: $1,299.99) and EU 118D (MSRP: $1,499.99) will be available from authorized Peavey retailers in Q2 2010.
