NAMM06: New Peavey Bass Amps And Cabs


Peavey has introduced three new Pro Series bass amplifiers featuring up to 2,000 watts of power, extensive EQ options and switchable operation in Stereo, Mono, Bi-Amp and Full-Range/Sub modes.
The Pro 2000, Pro 1200 and Pro 800 amplifiers feature dual preamps—one tube and one solid state—with pre-gain blend control for finding a unique mix of the distinct preamp tones. The amps’ three-band EQ section with parametric mid enables incremental adjustment of the frequency range (from 80 Hz to 4 kHz) and Q (wide to narrow) of the challenging mid frequencies, and also features shelving low and high EQ options.
A four-way mode switch on the Pro 2000 and Pro 1200 selects Stereo, Mono, Bi-Amp and Full-Range/Sub modes. When the amp is switched to Stereo, Bi-Amp or Full-Range/Sub modes, the Pro 2000 puts out 1,000 watts into 2 ohms per side (600 W on Pro 1200). When in Mono mode, it automatically bridges the two amps to create a massive 2,000-watt amp that drives 4 ohms (1,200 W on Pro 1200). In Bi-Amp mode, users can adjust the frequency distribution between two cabinets with the Balance control (left/low to right/high); the crossover frequency is adjustable from 100 Hz to 1 kHz. The Pro 800 amplifier operates in Mono only.
The Pro Series 2000, 1200 and 800 all feature a unique lightweight, universal switch-mode power supply that is compatible with worldwide voltages from 100 to 240 volts at either 50 or 60 Hz, reducing weight while making these amplifiers even more versatile. Additional features include DI, mute, input pad, master volume, thermally controlled two-speed fans and Peavey’s exclusive DDT anti-clipping speaker protection.

    There are also three updated bass loudspeaker enclosures in the Pro Series. The new Pro 810, Pro 410 and Pro 115 are voiced, Peavey tell us, for maximum articulation, bottom and punch to match the Pro Series bass amplifier heads.
    As the power ratings on the Pro Series amplifiers have increased to 2,000 watts, the Pro Series 810, 410 and 115 loudspeaker enclosures boast their own new features and updates. The new Pro Series enclosures utilize computer-enhanced cabinet design with specially tuned ports and curved sides to better project the wide range of tones available from the Pro Series bass amps.
    The new Pro Series enclosures utilize the same road-tested construction and components as the established Pro Series, but now come with ultra-lightweight plywood cabinets coated with an incredibly durable Hammer Head polyurethane exterior; high-performance, cast-frame loudspeakers; and perforated metal grilles.
