Spatial Processor Launches

FOH Staff • News • August 10, 2006

MERIDIAN–Peavey has introduced the Kosmos V2 live and recording audio processor, the next-generation subharmonic and stereo image enhancement system from Peavey. Combining the most popular features from the acclaimed Peavey Kosmos Pro and original Kosmos processors, the new Kosmos V2 aims to improve the listening experience in any space with any sound system. Kosmos is a dynamic phasing technology that manipulates low and high frequencies to deepen bass and widen highs through phasing rather than equalization, and helps mask the comb-filtering problems common in live sound productions.

The Kosmos V2 features front-panel rotary controls for adjusting the parameters and levels of Kosmos processing. Subharmonics has a special Low Damping button that adjusts the "tightness" of the low bass. The Cut Sub From Mains switch directs the low-frequency energy to the subwoofers only. Subwoofer control sets the level of sub in the mix, and features a Crossover Disable switch. Low Freq and High Freq adjust their respective frequency ranges.

"When you stand in front of an amplifier, you get this great 'thump' from the bottom end of the cabinet," explained Shirley regarding his use of Kosmos on a recent project for Led Zeppelin. "I used the Kosmos to create the sort of psycho-acoustic sensation you might get from being in close proximity to the amplifier cabinet. It enlarges the stereo image and creates extra bass."
