Peavey PR 12
The Peavey PR12 Passive's are a set of personal address (PA) speakers for your live show set up. A club/bar that I recently played at had a pair of these to use for bands. These are 12" speakers and feature a 2 way system that will require external power in the form of a mixer or power amp. While setting up for the show, at first we thought that these PR12's were the main PA speakers, but realized that it would be best to use the Community DnD12's they also had as the main monitors and use these Peavey's as floor monitors to hear ourselves back. They ended up doing a great job as it was easy to hear everything on the stage. They also make a version of these monitors that are active, but I don't know if there's much of a difference in sound. I'd be curious to hear how these sound as main monitors as they can certainly be used as regular PA speakers as well for live shows in a small venue or bar or even in your practice space, which may be the best use for them. They can definitely handle being used as mains for shows, but only in smaller venues for sure. The price of the Peavey PR12 Passive's don't make them the cheapest PA speakers around, but they're not too expensive when you consider you're getting a newer, high quality set of monitors. I'd probably only recommend spending this amount and getting these if you're looking to put together a rig for a bar set up for bands, as you can get a cheaper set that should do the job if you just need something for practicing. Either way you want to use them, the PR12's a fine set of PA speaker cabs.

Peavey PR 12
compact speaker 125 watt RMS into 8 ohms.
cutoff at 1400 Hz, with filter protection acute bulb.
not bad sound a little color in these fairly low (bump) with an acute and precise not properly garish.
dispersion due to the rather close
molded plastic box light enough (weight).
no extraneous vibration, grille well posed.
much like the load but the sound changes a bit (basically, it goes to a semblance of "hi-fi" of the 80's rather a "sound" a bit drier in the lower).
the noise power ratio is correct for the use of this type of speaker.
it's nice to lug through the generous top handle and two side handle.
4 feet in "hard rubber" below and 4 back.
6.35 2 jacks wired in parallel.
An insert of 35 mm with screws to put it up.
M6 inserts for hanging from above and / or bottom in "final".

in short, it is not very powerful but has a nice sound for the price compared to other models in this range.
for small performances with an audience that does not require the heavy but good sound.

not bad sonority some color in low enough prsentes (bump) with a properly acute prcis not garish.
dispersion rather prvue for the rapprochbr /> molded plastic sound quite lightweight (weight).
no parasitic vibration, although grid installation.

noise power ratio is correct for the use of this type of enclosure.
it's nice lugging through its gnreuse Suprieure grip handle and two latrales.
4 legs "hard rubber".
2 jacks 6.35 In parallel cables.
1 insert 35 mm to rest on foot.

in short, it is not very powerful but offers a nice sonority for the price compared to other models in the range.
for small services with a public that does not require heavy but rather good sound.

To be honest, when I bought her pregnant (he did three years) my small budget and silent as I read of the old school, in my head knows the speaker made of wood,,, good for all all who did not risk anything ...

j'tait tank by reading the SPECIFICATIONS,

2-way sound reinforcement enclosure
400 watts program, 800 watts peak
One 12 inch premium, 2 3 / 8 inch voice coil woofer
RX14 compression driver with titanium diaphragm 1.4 inch 1 inch exit
90 x 40 degree Constant Directivity horn
Tweeter protection
Heavy-duty crossover
Lightweight molded polypropylene enclosure
Molded-in pole mounts system
Heavy-duty metal grille

Surprise! I really fell from the sky when I was testing with a Peavey PV-900

For $ 230.00 U.S. / Hight unites the clear, the Bass prcis profondre (the nails so the walls in my living room ... lol) it sounds like the HI-FI.
report quality performance / price absulument dbille, I would think jamma little known jewels would have satisfied, but knows the same old story, it is still the best, but at what price and who knows his must have the best look for the least $ $ $ as possible.

I forgot, with respect to the wood I am now certain that follows the polymer is better for many reasons (durabilitimpermable, maintenance and quality sound).
