  • Page 3 ENGLISH Introduction Thank you for purchasing the powered Peavey® DM™ 115 powered speaker system. The DM™ 115 features a reliable bi-amped power section that provides a total of 660 Watts of peak available dynamic power with signal compression to prevent audible overload. The analog power amplifiers and linear power supply are coupled with a DSP based crossover and EQ.
  • Page 4 A typical signal source for the line-level inputs of the Peavey DM™115 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 con-...

    LOWER REAR PANEL BOTTOM OF REAR PANEL ON-OFF SWITCH (1) FUSE (1) This rocker switch supplies AC power to the DM 115 when switched to the ON position. The ON position is ™ with the left side of the switch pushed “in” or nearly flush with the rear panel. The unit is AC power line fuse protected from overloads and fault conditions with a slow-blow 5 x 20mm 250V fuse.

    ground pin, a suitable grounding adapter should be used and the third wire should be grounded properly. To prevent the risk of shock or fire hazard, always be sure that the mixer and all other associated equipment are properly grounded. VOLTAGE SELECTOR SWITCH (4) The DM™115 has a voltage selector switch to allow switching between an input power voltage of 120VAC to a range from 220VAC to 240VAC, all at either 50 or 60 cycles per second (Hz).
  • Page 7: Mic/Line Switch

    UPPER REAR PANEL INPUT (5) The line-level input is of the medium impedance balanced type. The jack is a combo female XLR and 1/4" TRS connector. Sensitivity of this input is 0.39 volts for full output, when the MIC/LINE switch (7) is in the LINE position GAIN (6) Controls the gain or output level of the input signal.

Pushing the button in till it detents makes a menu choice. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS Cautions The unit must be disconnected from the AC power source before any work is done on it. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
  • Page 9 Use of the DM™115 with a Speaker Stand The DM™115 has a stand mount cup molded-in so that the system can be stand mounted on a standard 1 3/8” (36mm) diameter stand pole. When using stands or poles, be sure to follow these precautions: Check the stand or pole specs to make sure that it can support the weight of the DM™115 (42 lbs./19.1 kg), and observe all safety precautions stated by the stand manufacturer, including the maximum height the stand is rated for.
  • Page 10 With the Level control adjusted fully clockwise, gain is at maximum and the input sensitivity is 0.39 V RMS for full-rated output with the line level position of the Mic-Line Switch (7). When driving the DM™115 from a mix- er, it may be advantageous to reduce the input sensitivity by turning the Level control to the halfway point. The DM™115 will now more closely match a typical power amp.
  • Page 11 Once the desired menu choice is displayed, push in the "Push-to-Select" knob. If the default LCD message display is present (e.g. DM 115 and 01: EDM ), then push in the "Push-to-Select" knob to bring up the menu, which will display the first choice of " Recall preset ".
