Peavey Electronics has released its new Dark Matter speaker enclosures, featuring Peavey's new DSP-equipped power section.

Peavey’s Dark Matter series high-S.P.L. (Sound Pressure Level) enclosures feature modern styling and come in four available models: the DM 112, DM 115, DM 118 Subwoofer and DM 115 Subwoofer.
All these models are said to be built tough with steel grilles and rugged injection molded cabinets. Their design allows for use as floor monitors or pole-mounted speakers. Useable for DJs, bands and other musical applications, the Dark Matter enclosures are announced as producing crystal-clear, professional audio quality. The Dark Matter LCD display and associated selector knob allow users to choose various parameters of operation for the DSP-based EQ, including bass and treble control access, as well as multiple EQ presets for various applications or speaker positions/locations. These presets are announced as providing users with a highly flexible method of configuring and optimizing the powered speaker system for a specific use with minimal time and effort.
Fan cooled for enhanced reliability, the DM 112 and DM 115 feature 110 by 80 degree coverage by Peavey’s exclusive Quadratic Throat Waveguide technology, aimed at delivering pristine, precise sound. Also featured is a two-way bi-amplified powered speaker system, 12” heavy-duty woofer, an XLR/1/4” TRS input and XLR output, DX 14-compression driver with 1.4-inch titanium diaphragm. A Mic/Line switch provides for two different gain settings. The cabinet has a rugged plastic injection-molded trapezoidal enclosure, rear corner angled sides for floor monitor use, full-coverage perforated steel grilles with powder coat finish, and a pole mount molded-in for 1 3/8” diameter poles. The dimensions of the DM 112 are 25.13” tall, 14.63” wide, and 14.38” deep, weighing 37 pounds, while the DM 115 is 27.94” tall, 16.75” wide, and 15.06” wide, weighing 42 pounds.
The DM 118 and DM 115 Subwoofers provide powerful low end with Peavey’s exclusive Kosmos technology (aimed at delivering powerful and dynamic bass impact), and forced air-cooled power amps with a vented bass powered subwoofer enclosure for better reliability. The speakers are equipped with an XLR/1/4” combo jack input, two high-pass XLR outputs and one full range thru XLR output. Also included is an internal line level low-pass/high-pass crossover network and a phase switch for phase reversal of the 15” heavy duty subwoofer. The speakers feature a full-coverage, heavy-duty perforated steel grille, steel handles, ground lift for lifting cable shield from ground, and a threaded pole mount with speaker pole included. The dimensions of the DM 115 Subwoofer are 24.25” tall, 16.75” wide, and 23” deep, weighing 71 pounds while the DM 118 Subwoofer measures 25.75” tall, 19.75” wide, and 23” deep.
