Peavey Commercial Audio, a division of Peavey Electronics, will be showing its RBN™ series of speaker enclosures at InfoComm 2016, Las Vegas. Driven by highly efficient, revolutionary power amps designed specifically for powered speaker enclosures, the RBN series consists of the RBN 110/RBN 112 speaker enclosures and the RBN 215/RBN 118 powered subwoofers.
The RBN 110/RBN 112 speaker enclosures are top quality, ultra-reliable loudspeakers. Unique to the RBN 110/RBN 112 are Peavey’s world-class ribbon drivers. Used in studio environments for decades, Peavey has developed a method for applying this high-quality sound technology to live applications. The result is crystal-clear audio that no other traditional compression driver can rival.
To match the incredible high-frequency performance of Peavey’s ribbon driver, the RBN 110/RBN 112 enclosures are equipped with dual-voice coil neodymium Scorpion® speakers which feature Peavey’s exclusive field replaceable basket technology.
The RBN 215/RBN 118 powered subwoofers are at the very forefront of subwoofer technology. Maintaining full output down to 36Hz with 2,000 Watts total peak power and constructed of heavily braced 18mm birch plywood, the RBN subs are designed for years of rock solid low end reliability.
Incorporating modern digital signal processing, the RBNTM series features two XLR/1/4" combination inputs, a 3.5mm input, and a mic/line level selection. Each input features digital infrasonic high-pass filters, a 9-band graphic EQ, and delay. Each output features a sophisticated compressor/limiter and fourth order high-pass/low-pass filters for crossover function and external subwoofer incorporation.
Reliability is key when selecting a powered enclosure. RBN enclosures feature an internal temperature monitor combined with a variable speed cooling fan, plus level and clip indication to ensure optimal performance. Completely user-friendly, the speaker system features internal presets built into the DSP, allowing users to quickly select the speaker’s application or orientation via the LCD on the rear of the enclosure.
Combined with Auto-off power down and integrated fly points, the RBN series is perfect for installations where audio quality, reliability and efficiency are of the utmost importance.
