Clearer, lighter, and louder than ever!

Peavey has updated its much-lauded SP Series! These live sound standards have earned their reputation for dependability by logging countless hours in live music clubs and other performance venues. Now Peavey has made them even better.

The redesigned Peavey SP 3 is no slouch, with its 2400W peak power rating, and the Black Widow loudspeakers (featuring field-replaceable baskets), they will surely deliver the pristine sound you have been looking for. With the aspen hardwood enclosure, they have an average 25 percent reduced weight, along with the new Hammertex cover, and newly redesigned exterior with full-front metal grilles. It also features a patented asymmetrical Quadratic Throat Waveguide technology that helps deliver pristine, precise sound. Another new feature is the patented Radialinear Planar Phase Correction System; and titanium compression drivers with ferrofluid cooling. This versatile, roadworthy loudspeaker will get the job done.
