Peavey Debuts Feature-Packed PVi 8500 & PVi 6500 Powered Mixers

Peavey® set the standard for affordable, feature-packed powered P.A. solutions more than forty years ago. The new Peavey PVi™ 8500 and PVi 6500 powered mixers bring together decades of R&D and design experience to create the best portable, all-in-one audio solutions for musicians and audio professionals.

The Peavey PVi 8500 and PVi 6500 are 400-watt powered mixers that combine exclusive Peavey innovations, the Peavey legacy of quality and reliability, and modern amenities such as an input dock for iPhone® and iPod®. Eight combination XLR and 1/4″ inputs (six on the PVi 6500) based on Peavey high-quality, low-noise Silencer® mic preamps provide versatility and clear audio reproduction, while Peavey’s proprietary Mid-Morph® EQ control improves the tone and clarity of vocals and complements the low and high EQ bands by boosting high-mids or cutting low-mids.

Both models feature a nine-band graphic EQ that is assignable to the main or monitor output and features Peavey’s patented FLS® Feedback Locating System, which makes accurate feedback elimination simple and intuitive. Exclusive Peavey Kosmos®-C technology provides spectrum enhancement to both the low and high end of the frequency range, while the footswitchable 24-bit digital effects section includes multiple varieties of rich, highly detailed reverb and delay.

Dual power amplifiers provide 400 watts total, with independent level control and parallel (main and monitor outputs) or stereo (both amps on main output) operation. Users can connect virtually any audio device to this versatile mixer via the onboard 1/4″, RCA and 1/8″ mini jacks.

The Peavey PVi 8500 and PVi 6500 will be available in Q3 2012 from authorized Peavey retailers. Please visit to find a dealer near you.
