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.

Awsome Speakers

By Brawler 1

from MI

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.

Great Speakers

By Matt-pGgES

from Rocky Mount, NC

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!

You Can't Ask For Better

By Smitty-28j_7

from South Georgia

See all my reviews

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.

Winner! Winner! Winner!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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!

I don't see how you can do better...

By Bruce A. Smith

from Croghan, NY

I have to write and say a huge THANK YOU to Peavey for making their PR 15's such an awesome speaker. As a one-man mobile DJ, I can't tell you how much I appreciate the light-weight design combined with a HEAVY-WEIGHT punch on the performance end! I purchased a pair of these over a year-and-a-half ago and I could not be happier (and this is being said after 15 weddings and a BUNCH of Middle-School/High-School dances where you REALLY pound the speakers with all of that new RAP-CRAP, as I like to call it when I joke with the kids). My only question/concern is: how in the world do you get that much bass response out of a plastic cabinet? My powered subwoofer went on the blink about five months ago; yet, I've hardly missed it! My dear Peavey, whatever it is that you're doing, KEEP doing it! This PR line is incredible!

My experience with Peavy PR-15s

By Randy (DJ Toner)

from Peru, IL

I was at a local bar, and the DJ playing there was using a set of Peavey PR-15 speakers for his mains. They sounded great! I could not believe how much low end response they had. I was seriously looking to see if he had a sub running. I was very impressed, and I am now considering a set of these for my small mobile system. Great sound at a bargain price, and light to boot!

Back to the Peaveys

By Destination Entertainment

from South part of NJ

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.

great for the cash

By MIke-cNyMp

I bought a pair of these for a pa set up, and they work great, I used them at a dance and they have enough bass to use without a subwoofer when playing cds. They are under 40 lbs each and very easy to haul around and set up on stands. The sound quality is pretty good too, as good as I'll ever need, they sound as good with a live band as with cds. I'm very happy with them.

These speakers are the greatest thing since sliced bread. They are light weight and durable at the same time, and sound great. I'm getting ready to purchase the PR10's for monitors.

Great Product

By Venturas

from Louisville, Kentucky

See all my reviews

At first I was very skeptical about these cabinets but was definitely pleased as soon as I heard them. I have 2 of the PR 15's I use for DJ and Karaoke along with a Behringer europower 1500. I also use this rig for small gigs. They are light weight and sound excellent with the Europower 1500. The only drawback may be the plastic cabinet. They would be hard to repair if cracked. I guess this is the trade off for being so lightweight. Also, they should add the speakon connector to the back of the cabinet. However, overall they are awesome, and I can wait to get another pair and the try the matching subwoofers. If you take care of them, they should last as long as any other peavey product. Peavey, overall, makes very good products and these rate right up along with any other cabinet in their arsenal. I did have to reglue the insignia plates back onto one of my cabinets. I just positioned the plate and use a propane torch to heat the glue and it was a good as new.

Simply awsome

By Double OI Punk

from plymouth, IN

See all my reviews

I was a bit leary of using a peavey speaker at first because I have never liked how they sounded before. After borrowing these from a friend to dj a gig for my wifes company I have got to say they are awsome. Clean and crisp all day long. My only problem was with playing music with sub-bass. I did not have a sub and did not have it externally crossed over and I got some horrible noise cancelletion out of it. But that is the same for most other speakers so make sure they are crossed over and maybe run a small sub with them. For the money YOU CAN NOT BEAT THESE SPEAKERS!

Blown Driver

By Dogbark

from Moline Illinois

After about 3 months of use I noticed I have blown horn driver. But no worry I bought the extended Gold coverage. Im call MF who put me in contact with the Gold coverage people who told me Peavey has a 5 year warrenty on this cabinet which supersceedes the Gold coverage. I called Peavey who told me to go to who I bought the PR15 from. I again called MF, and now 2 months later I still have a blown driver and have been getting the total run around.

Great Deal

I'd been eyeing these speakers for months, wanting a set of light mains to use for smaller gigs(especially the many "freebies"), or to chain off my other mains if I wanted. My wife wasn't convinced I needed them, especially since I don't really try to make much money for the money I spend on this stuff. (I have a good day job)I DJ'd next to a band at a big wedding this past weekend (an actual "money" gig), and they had these Peaveys. While I was power-lifting my 62lb 15" Yamaha Clubs, these 65yr-olds (I'm 48 and counting fast) were carrying these 37lb'ers. I got to hear these speakers first-hand, and they're just fine; good highs and base, very punchy and clear. I already have the sub that matches these; it's like, 32lbs.After struggling to get mine off of the stands at the end of the gig, I decided to pay Musician's Friend a visit. I just hope they come before Thursday; I've got this regular charity gig and I'm not looking foreward to lugging mine up that flight of stairs to the gym... argh!

Light and Powerful

By doc-9DsoY

I traded in a large, heavy, three-way speaker cab for a pair of these. Very glad I did. Last weekend I had 6 keyboard instruments and three vocalists coming out of those, and the sound was crystal clear. Lightweight, easy to put up on stands, and when the gig is over I can carry one out in each hand thanks to well-placed, built-in handles.
