I read many good reviews before purchasing 2 of these valuble and versatile LOUDspeakers. I work at a college radio station that plays mostly tecno asswell live house&breaks and Drum&bass DJ's. I was impressed just from the look of these right out of the box but, then how do they sound? I'll tell you if you don't know. Drum and Bass is a very demanding genre of Music to supply live sound for. I use 2 old peavey 1800 longthrow subs powered by an old cs800 amp. I pole mounted the pro 15 prolights on the subs and power them with a QSC 1450 350w at 8ohm per channel wich is ideal for these. They sound clear highs, solid mids, punchy lows and are super light. I can say I have used them with a cheap fender powerd mixer at the station and they still sound great. I have used this setup a few times allready and can vouch for Peavey's history of quality. The old 1800's rattled the pool table trimmings throughout the entire place we threw a show at and they are still original drivers at least 10 years old. As for the prolight15's they completly live up to the Peavey Legacy when it comes down to Quality meets Quantity for the best price around. I am personally using them for my elctronic Roland drum kit. I read a few reviews about the horns going bad or even being flawed out of box. I will have to tell you that I too had an issue with one of the horns. It was like a buzzing sound a day after I took them out of the box and had been lugging them to the station. My buddy was sure it was to good of a price to be true and thought it was blown. I on the otherhand having the faith for Peavey enginering I had to take a closer look. As I took it off the stand I heard a slight knocking or rattling only when I bumped or set it down hard. I unscrewed the back panel of the prolights and carefully removed it. I reached up inside to feel the horns driver to find that it jiggled a little. Then I carefully screwed it in tightly and snugg. Righty tighty. Lefty loosy. Never had a problem since.

I purchased two of these when they first were released in 2003 as well as a pair of the PRsubs, which I don't believe are sold anymore. They are lightweight and sound good, but they just can't be turned up too loud and suffer from some reliability issues. One of the first DJ gigs I used them on, the LF driver quit. After about half an our of troubleshooting my rig, I opened the cab up and found that the speaker wire was detached -- so loose it just slid off. I soldered them to the speaker and have not had that problem again. But, I have had to replace the crossovers twice on each of the cabinets -- they actually melted away, and I'm only using a Crown XL402 amp to run them. I also have had to replace the HF diaphragm on one of the speakers. This is only with using them about twice a month for DJ gigs. Luckily I registered them with Peavey and the parts were covered. They sent them out to me and I installed them. But I can't rely on these speakers. They are being sold so I can buy a pair of Yamaha or JBL. I have owned several Peavey products and they have not been a problem. I need something reliable and so far, these speakers have proven anything but.

Got these with the Peavey XR8600 package and have used them for about 2 years. I've blown 3 drivers, have a rattle in one cab and the screws are tight! Woofer is good so I don't know whats up with it! I don't even push these that hard! Amp still has plenty more to go. Also, I have to duct tape the speaker cables as they keep popping out! They are light though and sound decent at low settings, just don't expect much bass out of them. I do mainly karaoke with some DJ music and don't even play a lot of hip hop/rap etc, mainly country and classic rock to cause these issues!!! I haven't talked to Peavey but I'm sure I'd just get the run around. I've learned to stay away from plastic cabs and only sticking to wood and speakon connections!
Needs speakon, hello!!!
I have had such great sound from my Peavey pr 15 and am going back to them. I had bought another pair for I wanted ligghtweight but I suffer the sound quality even with the behringer 212 peaking to 800 watts I still like the sound that the 400 watts gives me. They seem to be a lot more durasble than the behringers.And even outdoors they are much better. And I have never had problems with the cords slipping out. I was taught in protools that you wrapp the cord around the speaker cables 3 times This ensures that people don't step on the cord and pull out the cables. I did not know that that was the reason I was taught this but now I do.
Speakers sound fine but the plugs pop out during use. Have had these for less then a year, last gig had to duct tape the plugs and one still worked it's way out! I have never seen this happen in my 37 years of playing proffesionally. Peavey is having me bring them to a repair shop for new jacks at their expense.
Been a DJ for 10 years. These are super light but very powerful. They are crisp and clear. They don't hit the subs hard but bass ok. Buy the Peavey subs to go with them and you have a good system. Rain got into my van during a storm and the tweeter was under water. I drained it at the gig set up and the speaker worked great! I was amazed! The only down is that it is true...the 1/4 inch cables will pop-out because of the air pressure. Other than that these save your back! Recommend for mobile but not for clubs. I will buy more at another date.
What more can I say. These are awsome speakers. Worth every penny for their lightweight alone. One person can carry both 15" mains by themselves. The extra handle on top makes this very easy. They sound great. I played 9 shows in 7 days during St. Pat's week and these things kicked ***. Some of the shows were in front of 1500 or more people. I am going to purchase a pair of the 10" speakers to use as monitors. Where else can you get a lightweight speaker that can handle this much power for this low price. Hope this helps some of you.
i own these speakers and run them with a peavy mixer. these hold up great at my gigs and go through anything. the cabs are great because they are durable. these are great.
If you know anything about spending money on sound equipment, you know that you would be hard-pressed to find speakers of quality such as these for a price so low. The only thing that could be improved upon is incorporating some speakon connectors into these speakers. Other than that, great speakers with no regrets!
This is the second set of these that I have gotten here and couldn't be happier. I push these two with a QSC 1450 and they sound great and punch with the best of them. Some comments say they don't work well in outdoor venues--With my 4 PR-15 2 QSC 1450 and 2PR-12 and a Peavy 1500, people standing 50 yards in front were askin me to turn down. Spend more on JVCs' or Yamahas' if you want but these do an equal job and the light weight more than makes up for any tiny shortfall they may have.
These cabs rock, I run them through a behringer mixer and they are awesome as crap.
I was in the market for either JBL's, Yamaha or EV speakers. I saw the PR-15's and hooked them up in the store. I was blown away by the quality, then the price and then their weight. Hands down, the best bang for the buck!
