I recently purchased these speakers with the intention of playing live acoustic small venues. I push these with a small 500 watt pa. Let me tell you these things ROCK. They are crystal clear even under strain. I have also run my laptop through them for a dj gig and they once again performed excellent. For the money, these would be hard to beat.

I can't believe everyone else is giving these speakers 5 stars. I bought this for light gigging with an acoustic group and these speakers just don't cut it. I'm looking for clean sound with solid bass and clear highs. The plastic cases contribute to a boomy bass, the highs are ok, but the overall sound is just muddy and not tight. I spent several days trying to EQ my way to some decent sound with these and just could never achieve it. I have a Behringer DSP unit with a reference mic that auto calibrates a 30 band EQ for the speakers but still couldn't get to a sound that I liked. Just for fun I compared these to a pair of cheap 10" Squire speakers and they sounded better! Not quite as much bass as the Peavey 12" of course, but the quality of the bass was much better. I suspect that the problem is the plastic cabinets. A light tap on the cabinet side produces a loud thumpy sound similar to the boomy base. Tapping on a wood cab with the same force produces hardly any sound at all. I really wanted to like these because of the light weight. But I'm taking them back in favor of a wood cab set.

take a licking and keep on tick...er pushing air so sweet

By Dan

from Burton MI

Comments about Peavey PR 12 Loudspeaker:

I'm a 67 year old car show dj, former radio air personality and run a successful one person mobile dj company for 25 years now. In outdoor car shows any speaker sounds good when placed as high as practical. One day in 2014 i forgot to remember the wind and distracted wandering cell phone airheads. A distracted guest and/or the stiff wind pushed my PR l5's over; you want to hear a sick sound listen to a speaker hitting asphalt from8-10 feet up. I felt sick as i plugged it back in and it NEVER missed a beat--NO DAMAGE to sound quality. I'll NEVER use anything except PR12'S OR PR l5's. I have both speakers and they are about 6 years old; 30 gigs a year. The light weight is remarkable. Might be better done in black but grey is ok. By the way, i was one of 3 dj's live outside at Flint Michigan's famed "Back to the Bricks" in downtown Flint in 2012. Running the PR 12 and l5's daisy chained i went out front for a sound check and you could hear every word of my helpers voice FOUR HUNDRED FEET from my table and console. Any live mobile dj not using these speakers is costing themselves; unbelievably good price as well.

    Comments about Peavey PR 12 Loudspeaker:

    This is a terrific, USA made speaker, especially for the price. It has a smooth, wide range sound, with no overblown bass or screechy highs. It is easy to carry around, and reasonably compact. It is well made and looks very durable.

    Peavey speaker quality in an American made product. Go for it, you won't be disappointed.

      I bought a pair of these when they first came out 10-12 years ago. Since then, I have upgraded my entire rack 2-3 times but am still using my Peavey PR12s. They've been used indoors, outdoors and in both large and small venues. I still haven't found anything else (for my money) that I am willing to buy. Great durability, lightweight and exceptional volume/sound quality with less than 400 watts of power per channel.

        Comments about Peavey PR 12 Loudspeaker:

        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.

            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!

            PR 12s

            Comments about Peavey PR 12 Loudspeaker:

            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.

            Comments about Peavey PR 12 Loudspeaker:

            This speaker has very many capabilities for the great price!! I have had a pair of pr 12s for two years and they still sound the way they did from the first day i bought them. I travel a lot of places with them for the times i'm DJ abnd they can take the beating. I also do live gigs with my peavey xr 590 and the peavey pr12 running through the mixer. Putting a base, two mricophones, a guitar, and a rca line through it and never loosing power. the peavey pr12 is a great speaker to buy no hands down.

            Comments about Peavey PR 12 Loudspeaker:

            I Compared all the 12" Speakers in store, i ended up with a pair of the PR 12s. The Yamahas were what i intended to buy they had a great sound But the PR 12s were just a little brighter and cheaper for the pair. I wall mounted them and hooked them up to my crown xls 1000. Great sound. Granted there are better - more expensive speakers out there, but for 12's they sound great. I ran my crown just in to clip for about 30 minutes as a test with some Zeplin and i am not hating on Peavey anymore. A quality product for the price. If you need more bass then get a sub.
