Overview

The 1508 driver series represents a new level of power and performance for Black Widow loudspeakers. Power handling is increased by 40% over other comparable models, along with reduced distortion and higher overall sound quality.The is the 15" model with 8 ohm impedance.

Design
The BWX Series uses a special cone that is a variation on the existing Kevlar impregnated cones used on all Black Widows. This cone is stronger and tougher, highly water-resistant, and has a specially designed surround - a deep roll accordion design - that improves mid range clarity. The dust cap is also made of the same extremely strong material.

Applications
The 1508 is an excellent choice for a wide range of sound reinforcement, high-level playback, subwoofer, and monitor applications. The 15" driver can work with crossover points as high as 2.0 kHz but work best below 1.5 kHz.

Enclosure
To assist with the growing interest in home-built enclosure designs, Peavey provides complete parameter data on these drivers, as well as several recommended enclosures on their website. The strength of the completed enclosure has a great effect on the bass performance of the finished system. Box panels that aren't stiff enough will vibrate, canceling bass produced by the woofer and creating undesired sounds of their own. If your box vibrates or you don't think the box panels are stiff enough, add more bracing.
