Suitable for both subwoofer and woofer applications, the 15" Pro Rider 1508-8 CU CP Loudspeaker from Peavey has a power handling rating of 1,200 W in program mode, along with high efficiency, reduced distortion, and good overall sound quality. This subwoofer offers 8 Ω impedance that is suitable for both subwoofer and woofer applications. This subwoofer uses a strong and tough Kevlar impregnated cone that is water-resistant and has a specially designed deep roll accordion surround. The dust cap is also made of the same strong material.

The voice coil assembly on the driver uses thermoset insulated copper ribbon wire, edge wound and bonded onto a durable, heat-resistant, polyimide composite former. The coil wires are solderless diffusion welded to high conductivity OFHC copper foil leads, which are embedded inside the former assembly and attached to the tinsel leads with high temperature silver solder. The solder joint is then coated with a special, thermally conductive silicone adhesive for encapsulation and heat dissipation.

The voice coil assembly is bonded to the Kevlar cone and tough nylon composite spider, using a thermoset epoxy, originally developed for attaching nose cones on ICBM missiles. The spider and surround are bonded to the frame with a high strength adhesive. The magnet structure includes subtle changes to its geometry to improve power handling. The replacement baskets (sold separately) from the Pro Rider series will fit on standard BW magnet structures.

The vent plate assembly used on Low Rider drivers to increase power handling is included in this Pro Rider series loudspeaker. This results in a significant improvement in power handling capabilities and long-term power compression. This driver also features cast aluminum frames, replaceable basket assemblies, Rubatex gaskets, and highly reliable, spring loaded terminals.

The 1508-8 CU CP Pro Rider is specifically optimized for bass performance in very small vented enclosures, along with flat mid-bass and mid-range response for an accurate, clean, sound quality. It is suitable for compact enclosures, multi- driver subwoofers, and monitors where enclosure size is limited.

This Pro Rider driver is suitable for a wide range of sound reinforcement, high-level playback, subwoofer, and monitor applications as well as general purpose sound reinforcement. The enclosure size is reasonable and it delivers a strong performance from sub bass to upper mid-range. It features a vented and bandpass enclosure design.

Note: The Pro Rider can work with crossover points as high as 2.0 kHz, but works best below 1.5 kHz.
