      I currently own and have owned a lot of Peavey gear throughout the years and none of it has ever let me down. I bought these to replace some older model SP2's that I dearly love but,I'm getting older and they were not getting any lighter. These speakers at 33 lbs. are a joy to carry and, I can put them on my stands by myself with ease and, did I say carry them both at the same time? The sound is SUPERB and, the looks of these units are GREAT. I'm keeping my SP2's but, I'll probably be using the PR12's from here forward. I'm using these with an older model Peavey 2-15 sub and, the whole rig is connected to a Peavey XR8600 mixer amp and, it will rattle the walls with pure clean undistorted sound if you will. I'll never have to run it in that mode because most of the gigs that I do are medium to small clubs and, bar and grill places. If I were to book an outdoor gig like a street dance or even something in a large auditorium or gym I am completely confident that it would not be a problem covering the gig adaquetly. I highly recommend these speakers and, the price tag for these for what you get is very reasonable.

      Very happy with this speaker. I'm the music directer & sound man in our Church. We bought these speakers about 13 months ago, and they work very good. We got two for the mains and I'm using one for a monitor. Our church is'nt that big, it's about 1200s.f. I'm sure they could handle a bigger room, and the price is very good.

            I've had these pair for 2 years and these are my favorite speakers out of all 6 speakers I play through. Clear sound and I love that I can carry both without hardly exerting my energy. I want another pair to augment full set!

                  We use multiple Mackie 15s for big venues and needed a smaller more portable speaker for smaller gigs. Tried a pair of PR 12s belonging to a friend and loved 'em. Bought a pair! Tough, lightweight and great sound for the money. I mix acoustic guitar and lead vocals through a Fishman Mini Pro which I use as an on-stage monitor. Run that signal, 2 bg vocals, lap-steel and stand-up bass from the board to the PR 12s. Stand-up bass is a tough instrument to get a decent PA sound on, and I was concerned that the 12s might not handle it at any kind of volume. No problem! No distortion, no clipping. These PR 12s are great value for the money, and EASY to load in and out. Couldn't be happier.

                        I am getting up in the age so, being light was important to me. After 17 year with my band I feel like I know what a good pair speakers are. Loud is not better folks clear vocial should be frist That's the thing you'er looking for.,and these speaker will do the job for you. With any speaker you must know how to mix. Ask for help if you are not sure what you'er doing. you'll be glad you did. I still have lots of Peavey Equipment it's good stuff . It has always been good to me. Buy these speaker I'm sure you'll be happy Still going, Long live country

                        Outstanding!!

                        Comments about Peavey PR 12 Loudspeaker:

                        Today I had the chance to connect to my Yamaha PA (EMX312) this speaker along with a Kustom 12" and a Behringer B212. I really dont know how is there people comparing these speakers. Simply it is not fair to compare the Peavey PR12 with these speakers. The sound of the Peavey is just GREAAAATTTT!!!! and much more better. Perfect highs, mid and lows. I connect my Yamaha electronic drums thru my PA and it rocks the house. If you put the PR12 in a stand it will produce a good amount of low end; but sitting on the floor the bass that comes out of this speaker is spectacular!!! The difference is very noticeable. 100% recommended. Don't waste your money in other expensive brands. One thing: for larger venues (like 300+ people) I add the Peavey subwoofer 15". Very light, passive and can be connected in parallel with the PR12 or in a separate channel for better control of the mix.
                        What do you expect from a passive speaker? The only feature is the parallel input... good!
                        The quality can be seen out of the box. The construction is solid and very good eye appealing.
                        Worth every penny. They are not cheap at all nor expensive; just very fairly priced.

                        Great speakers for the price.
                        Recently purchased a parui of Peavey PR12N speakers for my band's PA system. The Peaveys replaced a pair of old Carvin 12" speakers, one of which had blown out. I looked at a lot of brands (Mackie, Behringer, EV, JBL) but chose the Peaveys after reading so many good reviews on this site and as well as others about Peavey's price, performabce and reliability. I have owned EV and Yamaha speakers in the past, but this was my first Peavey purchase. The reviewers were right - these Peaveys rock. Super light weight, tough plastic casing, crisp high end. I run them in parallel off a Crown XLS 1000 amp in bridged mono mode (delivering 1100 W into a 4 ohm load). Seems like the SP 12's require a lot of wattage for 12" speakers (400W at 8 ohms), but the sound is awesome - far superior to the old Carvins. Price and performcne, I am definately impressed with their performance, packaging and would recommend them.
                        Seem tough but reliability remains to be seen. Peavey has a great reputation for endurance and quality, which I am counting on.
                        Price was among most competitive of any of the brands I reviewed.

                        Starting a band takes 3 things: guts, patience, and money. It's not worth your time to buy crappy speakers to just replace them in a year. These speakers are the real deal. They have great highs and great lows. The price is a bit high, but its in a good range. For anyone just starting out, I'd defintely recommend these. It will shock you how much power they have. GET THESE.

                        Comments about Peavey PR 12 Loudspeaker:

                        I'm powering 4 of these from a crown XTI2000 high passed at 90Hz. Yamaha 01V console. I use them for DJing, live bands, etc. They will get me in the low 90's dBA wise easilly from about 60ft back outside, which is plenty for me. These thing are incredible for what they are. Expensive speakers will be much better, but you can't go wrong if you are on a budget like me. The only thing I would immediately notice is that the tweeters aren't as clear in the high mids as some more expensive speakers. However, they don't have a boost there either which is good. While there are good and bad things about the sound...be quiet about the bad stuff because they are so cheap!!!! lol
                        Very basic, however I like that the tweeter has a fuse. I don't worry about cranking them up for this reason. I did have to install some speakon connectors in the back because they only have 1/4" connections. This was very easy though. Pretty tough housing and grille.
                        Very good depending on the situation. Outdoors, these speakers slam. They sound great with just a couple of EQ notches. Maybe like two in the low mids and high mids. Don't expect any substantial low end out of them below about 80Hz though. You need subs with these speakers if you are needing good low end. They have warm low mids that you can feel and the tweeters extend up to as high as I can hear (like 18kHz). I think they have a little high shelf after 10kHz, but I like that. It's maybe an extra 2dB up there. It's unusual to get this kind of sound from a cheap plastic cabinet.

                        Indoors, they are a bit of an EQ challenge because they throw sound everywhere. But, that's why I have a Crown XTI2000 with 3 parametric EQ's at my disposal. I can always get something decent sounding even in small rooms.
                        Cheaper than I was building my old mains for for my little personal rig.
