  • Page 3 Quadratic Throat Waveguide™ with a coverage pattern of 100˚ horizontal by 50˚ vertical. The DPE 2P-4P is capable of up to 131 dB peak SPL. The enclosure utilizes plywood in a modified-trapezoidal form, with a coated perforated steel grille to offer an attractive yet durable powered speaker system. The cabinet and grille are black.

    2P-4P has a variety of applications, including sound reinforcement, public address, side fill system, karaoke and music playback. A typical signal source for the line-level inputs of the Peavey DPE 2P-4P would be a sound reinforcement mixing console (mixer) or the output from a CD player, MP3 player or tape deck. A dynamic microphone can be connected directly as well.

  • Page 6 The "Speech" position is useful for direct interface of a dynamic microphone to the inputs of the DPE 2P-4P. When the Music/Speech switch is pushed in, and the Speech mode is engaged, the LED (16) to the upper right glows green.
  • Page 7 IN position and while setting the microphone level, or very loud feedback will occur! Damage to the system is likely if this occurs! DO NOT connect the inputs of the DPE 2P-4P to the output of a power amplifier. The inputs are meant to be driven from a mic or line-level signals.
  • Page 8 The best option is a shielded, balanced XLR cable no longer than necessary to reach the DPE 2P-4P. It is usually a good idea to leave some slack at the input to the DPE 2P-4P and also to tape the cables down or run them under a cable guard to avoid anyone tripping over them or pulling the DPE 2P-4P over when stand mounted.
  • Page 9 It is not good practice to turn the Gain control(s) on the DPE 2P-4P all the way up and then try to control level only from the mixer, as this approach would tend to pick up excess noise. The best practice would be to run a "hot" signal from the mixer down the cable to the DPE 2P-4P, and then turn the DPE 2P-4P Gain control up only as much as necessary to reach full desired output.
