PDFSP 6 Specifications (pdf)

The new SP 6 features the new Quadratic Throat Waveguide™ in a dual-horn arrangement. The SP 6 is a quasi four-way speaker system comprised of two 15" Black Widow® BWX SF woofers with a Kevlar® impregnated cone, a horn loaded 6½" mid-range and an RX™22 compression driver loaded onto the patented constant directivity waveguide.

The SP 6 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.

The quasi four-way system consists of the following driver components: two 15" Black Widow® BWX SF woofers with Kevlar® impregnated cones, and dust caps. Capable of over 1,000 Watts continuous power handling (AES Std 2-1984), the woofer section can handle a lot of power. The midrange is carried by a 6½" professional-grade, horn-loaded speaker with a phase plug and ferrofluid cooling, providing high articulation in the vocals. The high frequencies are handled by an 2" RX™22 titanium diaphragm compression driver utilizing ferrofluid cooling. Both the midrange and the high frequency drivers are coupled to a Quadratic Throat Constant Directivity Waveguide (U.S. Patent 6,059,069), with smooth, even response, low distortion and good high frequency dispersion. These horns both have 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 for greater clarity and gain before feedback. The RX®22 driver feature the Radialinear Planar Phase Correction System (U.S. Patent 6,064,745), which provides smoother and extended high frequency response.

Full range input connection to the system is made via two ¼" phone jacks and a four-pin Neutrik jack in parallel, with bi-amping flexibility provided for via an internal jumper that can be accessed by unscrewing and removing the input cup. The internal passive crossover features Peavey’s exclusive Sound Guard™ protection circuit for both the tweeter and the mid-range speaker, 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 when the system is used to full-range or when it is bi-amped without impairing musical transients or dynamics on either the mid-range or the tweeter. The crossover provides driver roll-off and protection, as well as driver EQ for the woofers, midrange and horn, for clean, clear, 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 50 Hz to 15 kHz.

This extremely high power handling system can put out some very serious sound levels, but with control and precision for high articulation and long-term reliability.
