The SP 5.5P is an updated and powered version of Peavey’s SP 5 loudspeaker enclosure. The SP 5.5P features a 15-inch Peavey Black Widow loudspeaker with a 4-inch voice coil and field-replaceable basket. These enclosures also feature RX 22 compression drivers with ferrofluid cooling and patented Quadratic Throat Waveguide technology, which yields reduced horn distortion and clearer sound. In addition, the horn's asymmetrical design aims the sound down to the audience, not over their heads.
The power section features a bi-amplified, 1,000-watt power amplifier with exclusive DDT speaker protection, full-range ¼-inch and Neutrik Speakon I/O and a Loop I/O jack for daisy-chaining multiple units. Nine-ply Baltic birch construction using extensive internal bracing produces tighter bass response, especially below 200 Hz. The SP 5.5P also includes built-in stand-mount adapters and black carpet covering.
The Peavey SP5.5P enclosure will be available in Q2 2006 from authorized Peavey retailers at a MSRP of $949.99.
