Peavey Electronics is now shipping the new RBN 112 full-range loudspeaker and RBN 215 subwoofer, both driven by onboard amplifiers designed specifically for powered loudspeakers.
The RBN 112, a two-way design, incorporates the company’s proprietary 120 mm ribbon high-frequency driver on a low-coloration waveguide. This is joined by a 12-inch, dual-voice coil neodymium Scorpion woofer with Peavey’s field replaceable basket technology.
The onboard amplifier provides up to 1,500 watts of power and also incorporates DSP. Each input includes digital infrasonic high-pass filters, a 9-band graphic EQ, and delay, while each output offers a compressor/limiter and fourth-order high-pass/low-pass filters for crossover function and external subwoofer incorporation. Also included are bass enhancement and auto-off power down, and users have the option to establish EQ presets.
Connectors on the RBN 112 include two XLR/1/4-inch combination inputs, a 3.5 mm input, and a mic/line level selection. The braced, molded enclosure includes side and top handles as well as multiple side and top fly points. Dimensions are 24 x 14 x 14-inches (h x w x d), and weight is 39 pounds.
The RBN 215 powered subwoofers maintain full output down to 36Hz with 2,000 Watts total peak power and constructed of heavily braced 18mm birch plywood. The unit includes dual 15-inch woofers, assignable crossover, locking casters, braced cabinet assembly, ground lift, pole mount, and a steel perforated grille. Dimensions are 32.88 x 22.07 x 24.75-inches (h x w x d), and weight is 125 pounds.
“Reliability is key when selecting a powered enclosure. RBN enclosures feature an internal temperature monitor combined with a variable speed cooling fan, plus level and clip indication to ensure optimal performance,” added Peavey COO Courtland Gray. “The setup wizard makes the speaker system completely user-friendly with internal presets built into the DSP, allowing users to quickly select the speaker’s application or orientation via the LCD on the rear of the enclosure next to the power amp VU meter.”
