Hide thumbs


Thank you for purchasing the class D powered PR ® 15D. The PR 15D features a bi-amped power section that provides 150 watts power
for the woofer and 50 watts power for the compression driver tweeter, both with Peavey-exclusive DDT ™ compression. Featuring
a 15" heavy duty woofer and the RX ™ 14 compression driver, the PR 15D provides an XLR and 1/4"phone combo jack, with mic/line
switchable level, balanced input with volume control.
• Bi-amplified Class D powered system with 200 watt total power
• Both power amps have DDT compression
• 15" heavy duty woofer with 2.375" voice coil and Neodymium Magnet
• Woofer servo for reduced woofer distortion
• Automatic equal loudness (Fletcher-Munson)
• RX 14 1.4" titanium compression driver
• Peak SPL up to 120 dB with music!
• Combo jack with 1/4" TRS & female XLR mic- or line-level balanced input
• Two 1/4" phone jacks for link-out/direct-in capability
• Molded-in horn with exceptionally smooth response and pattern control
• Top and sides handgrips
• Pole mount molded-in
• Reduced weight
• Top and bottom flying point inserts
The Peavey PR 15D is a powered, bi-amplified, two-way speaker system engineered to provide very high levels of performance in a
compact powered loudspeaker. The PR 15D is capable of up to 120 dB peak SPL. The enclosure utilizes tough polypropylene in an
injection-molded plastic trapezoidal form, with a coated steel grille to offer an attractive yet-durable powered speaker system.
This two-way powered system is comprised of a 150 W class D power amplifier driving a 15" heavy duty woofer. The RX ™ 14
compression driver is driven by a 50 W class D power amplifier and features a 1.4" titanium diaphragm coupled to an extremely smooth
and well-controlled constant directivity horn (with a coverage pattern of 90˚ by 40˚) that is molded integrally into the enclosure.
A balanced input to the preamp/EQ electronics consists of one combo female XLR and 1/4" TRS phone jack. It is switchable between
mic-level and line-level sensitivity. Two 1/4" phone jacks are provided for link-out / direct-in capability. The link-out is post- level and
pre-crossover. While the direct-in is a direct pre-crossover input.
A woofer servo senses back-EMF from the woofer voice coil that is not a result of the drive signal, and subtracts the error so that the
woofer cone follows the drive waveform precisely.
Constant Loudness (Fletcher-Munson) circuit for accenuating bass and treble at low listening volume levels.
The power amplifiers providing the bi-amplification are low-distortion units providing 150 W continuous RMS into the nominal 8 ohm
load of the woofer, and a 50 W continuous RMS into the nominal 8 ohm load of the tweeter. They were selected for their reliability and
superb musical performance capability. Both amplifiers feature our patented DDT ™ compression, which virtually eliminates audible
power amplifier clipping.
A molded-in handle provides ease of transport, while multiple mounting points (top and bottom) for the Peavey Versamount ™ allow
maximum utility.
