Peavey HIsys range ships in Europe

AUTHOR: Inavate

Peavey has announced availability of its HIsys range in Europe. It comprises five units: three satellites and two subs.

The satellites (H10, H12 and H15) and subwoofers (H15 sub and H18 sub) are designed to be lightweight and versatile for use in a number of applications including bars, music venues and outdoor spaces.

Satellites (10”, 12” or 15”) share a turntable horn and symmetrical design suitable for monitor use as well as standard applications utilising a one-inch driver as well as 40-bit, 96kHz DSP.

In addition, each has four presets: Standard; Indoor; Monitor; and Low Cut, the latter of which allows the enclosure to 'match' to one of the HIsys subs.

The 15” and 18” subs are equipped with analogue processing and thanks to a stereo input (which provides a total of two inputs and two outputs), no external processing is needed when matching a sub to a satellite. 

Additionally, there is a selectable crossover switch (80 or 125 Hz), a switch for the selection of the zero- or 180-degree phase, and a volume potentiometer.

The H15 satellite can reach 133dB and the H18 sub will peak at 135dB. The range utilises Class D amplification and a large aluminium plate which strengthens the rear of each respective cabinet and acts as a heat sink for the amplifier. Therefore there is no need for fans which making the units suitable for applications such as places of worship.
