I have a pair of the 15s and a pair of the 12's. The 15s are actually lighter than the 12's. The 15's are not 300w but 400w. I don't like the crossover at 150hz, but for small venues, I will use the built in crossover; otherwise, I use an external crossover crossed at 120hz. These cabs are great. I know many like using 18s for subs, but think about it--15s can move air at lower volumes, you may be losing 10 hz on the low end between 18s and 15s. If you gig in the clubs, these are the cabs to use.

I have used a pair of these PR Subs for a number of years now. They sound wonderful and used properly at the right power levels and with a good rack mounted crossover, they can really perform well in smaller venues.

HOWEVER, that being said, they have one flaw which can bite you. The jack plate on the back of the cabinet is attached to a small coil on a circuit board via four plastic support posts. With normal use (loading, unloading, transporting a few times a week) these little plastic posts will break off the jack plate and leave the coil and wires leading to the speaker dangling by the wires to the jack plate. Both PR Subs I own had this happen after a few years of normal use. It can be a difficult job to repair it, and even then it will probably happen again unless you take preventive steps.

I would still recommend this for people on a budget, but be sure to baby these when loading and unloading.

      Comments about Peavey PR Subwoofer:

      We've been using a pair of these for about ten years now---never a performance problem and they were not babied (the grill badges/logos will not last long). At the time they cost less than they do now but the bang-4-buck factor is still way up there. We usually just daisychain these subs from our JBL EON or EV SX speakers. We've used them indoors and outdoors with great success. Like the rest of the PR series, slightly larger than they need be BUT ridiculously lightweight. 1/4-inch I/O only---no SpeakOn connectors. I wish they were black. Like I said---ten years and counting.

      I got two of these a few years ago. They sounded pretty good and are light. I didn't use these very many times and one blew after the warranty is out. I opened it up, pretty cheap looking speaker, not the same as in the full range cabinets. I didn't get my moneys worth.

      Peavey Subs 15 and the Peavey 115's

      By Ralph Warzy Sr.

      from Tower City, PA

      Comments about Peavey PR Subwoofer:

      I bought 2 subs and 2 115's as a matching set, yes they do sound great !! But I have had a number of problems with them, I took them back to the music store about four times, the drivers went one time , the cross overs went out twice and the subs went out. Yes they have fixed them every time at no cost to me, the service at the music store where I bought them has also been very good. But when your system goes out during a show it's tuff to beleive in that product.I have been a DJ since 1973 all my equipment matches up nothing is over loaded.Has any one else had these problems with the 115's and the PR Subwoofer 15's ?The sound they produce is great, "when they work".

      Good quality and value

      By Hugues Lebegue

      from california

      Comments about Peavey PR Subwoofer:

      good value
      I'm buying my second. Have been using for 6 years. You can daisy chain these subwoofers to the 12 or 15 inch non-powered speakers. They add a good punch, and not heavy to move around.

      The only drawback is that they don't stack up with the 12 or 15 inches speakers. I would have loved to find a way to use the mounting screws, so i can create a tower.

      There may be some rack accessories out there, but i can't ceems to be able to find on the web.

      8 ohms in paralell full range

      Will recommend buying it anytime

      PR Sub Lightweights Kick!

      from Northern IL

      Comments about Peavey PR Subwoofer:

      I was a bit suspicious when I first plugged them in. It took about 1 hour of cranking to get them loosened up. Then Wow! For a very portable and light cabinet, a pair these set together in the middle pump out serious bass when EQ'd correctly. Use these with a pair of PR12's, and you get an impressive system you can carry in a Neon. I did have to tighten the screws on the screens a little, but otherwise absolutely no rattles, and they stay put on the floor. Quite the bargain.

      Great Subs For Mobile Shows

      By DJ Tommy Gunnz

      from Northern Cambria, PA

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Peavey PR Subwoofer:

      Great product overall.
      Hey...DJ Tommy Gunnz here from Pennsylvania. I've been a DJ for since 1997. I hope my review helps!!

      I recently purchased these subs to add some punch to my DJ/Karaoke shows & they work great. I'm pairing them up with my (2) Yamaha BR15's... basically piggy backing them... also using a Yamaha P7000S Power Amp. They're nice to have at smaller venues [50-150 people] but I have used this set up for weddings [300-500 people]. The price is great & they're fairly easy to transport. Obviously they don't hammer like my PV118's, but they work great. I only rated them a 9 because they're not 18 inch subs. I use those at my stationary gigs because they are more difficult to transport in my Chevy Trailblazer with other equipment.
      So far, so good. I don't abuse them or red line my levels.
      Great product for a decent price.

        Comments about Peavey PR Subwoofer:

        Coming up to the fifteenth year of service (we do 50-85 gigs per year). I have a review below (written five years ago). Not irritatingly thunderous and teeth-rattling but, when used with your typical pole-mounted 12s and 15s cabinets, you will notice the difference and miss them when not used. They fit nicely into the crotch of a tripod speaker stand. Three minor wishes: I wish they were black, the top was flat, and that the badges were better placed/designed (long gone from our units). A major wish: Speakon connectors. Yes, they are a bit oversized but, hey---it's a subwoofer. Unless you're willing to spend a lot more for an EV SX sub, or pretend with a Bose L sub, it's not likely that you'll come across a compact sub any where near the price of the PR, and these may be the lightest 15 cabinets you ever handle. I'm glad they're featuring/selling these again. Like I opened with: 15 years of service, no problems.

          LITEWEIGHT SUB

          By Jack-cYIBa

          from Rhode Island

          Comments about Peavey PR Subwoofer:

          I have two of these PR subs, but the ad says 300w program and that's untrue because the neo's are 400w program and 800w peak. They also are not 42lbs, more like 32lbs. I also have the pr15's, which I use for mid/hi packs xovered @ 120 hz with a QSC G5 for powering them. The G5 puts 350w apiece into each cab and I must say these cabs kick especially with the tops xovered 120hz DJ-ing or a bluses/classic rock band for up to 200 people. Bands are all mic-ed up but you have to know your limits with them as with anything else.

          I purchased 2 Peavey PR15 speakers, 1 Peavey PRSub and a Peavey Stereo crossover and they work GREAT together. The seperation of Highs sent to the PR15s and Bass to the PRSub are really good. I would recommend this combination to any one.

          Good deal

          Comments about Peavey PR Subwoofer:

          I have the PR15s, and these Subs to go with them. I find them to be a great match.I have more expensive/heavier speakers, but for the last couple years, I tend to grab the PRs, as most of what I do is on the smaller side, like 100 people or less. I would not sacrifice good sound for weight, but there isn't much of a compromise here. My back thanks me everytime I use these, and the price makes the deal even better. I highly recommend these to go with the PR15s, and especially 12" Mains.

          Things to consider...

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Peavey PR Subwoofer:

          I?m resubmitting a review here, as many years later, I?m far more experienced since I wrote the first one.First off, the drivers in these subs are exactly the same as the woofers in the PR15 main speakers, so those using them together are wasting their money and effort hauling them both out. Pairing them up with the PR12s might make a better combination, but imo, you may as well just get the PR15s and be done. I also own the Peavey PV118 subs, which are a huge step up from the PR subs soundwise, but of course they?re larger and heavier. Also, it appears Peavey is using the same cab housing for these subs as their PR15 mains, the vent being where the horn would be, and the pole mount on the bottom, which is nonsensical for a sub. What I did was flip them over, putting the little rubber feet on the other end and flipping the grill over so the vent is at the bottom and the pole socket on the top, so I could mount mains on top with a pole, but only if using the PR12s or other light mains, for stability reasons.
