PDFSP 5 Specifications (pdf)

The SP 5 is a two-way speaker system comprised of a high output 15" Scorpion® Plus HO woofer with a Kevlar®-impregnated cone and an RX™22 compression driver loaded onto a patented Quadratic Throat Waveguide™.

The SP 5 has a trapezoidal-shaped enclosure, which reduces the buildup of standing waves inside the enclosure to minimize mid-bass and mid-range coloration. The enclosure is constructed of aspen hardwood plywood augmented with dual-layered top and bottom panels, covered with heavy-duty, textured black Hammertex™ and reinforced with high impact plastic corners. A full-length, wrap-around perforated steel grille protects the front of the enclosure. A built-in SA-1 stand-mount adapter accommodates speaker stand use.

The low frequencies are supplied by a 15" Scorpion Plus HO woofer with a Kevlar-impregnated cone and a highly linear suspension. The high frequencies are handled by a 2" RX™22 titanium diaphragm compression driver utilizing ferrofluid cooling. This superb driver is coupled to a Quadratic Throat Constant Directivity Waveguide (U.S. Patent 6,059,069) to provide smooth, even response, low distortion and good high frequency dispersion. This horn has an asymmetrical vertical polar response, aiming the main energy lobe down 10 degrees so it is aimed at the audience instead of over their heads. This helps reduce ceiling reflections, ensuring greater clarity and gain before feedback. The RX™22 driver features the Radialinear Planar Phase Correction System (U.S. Patent 6,064,745), which provides smooth and extended high frequency response.

Input connection to the system is made via two ¼" phone jacks and four-pin Neutrik jacks in parallel. The internal passive crossover features the Peavey-exclusive Sound Guard™ III protection circuit for the tweeter and an advanced topology crossover with high-performance components to provide high power handling and reliability. Sound Guard provides long- and medium-term driver overload protection without impairing musical transients or dynamics when the system is used full range. The crossover provides driver roll-off and protection as well as driver EQ for the woofer and horn for a clean, clear and smooth response. High-quality, reliable crossover components include polypropylene capacitors and high-current inductors. The optimal integration of the crossover with the selected drivers results in a smooth frequency response from 69 Hz to 17 kHz.

Despite its compact dimensions, this system can produce very high sound levels and handle 800 Watts program power, resulting in clean coverage with high articulation and long-term reliability.
