Peavey SSE 5 overview

  • 1Description

The black Sanctuary Series SSE S5 15" 800W 2-Way Speaker from Peavey comprises of a high output 15" Scorpion Plus HO woofer with a Kevlar impregnated cone, and an Rx22 compression driver loaded onto the patented constant directivity waveguide. Designed for use in professional permanent installation in churches, theaters, auditoriums, gyms, and theme parks, the SSE S5 speaker system provides a controlled and contoured vertical coverage pattern for improved intelligibility in such larger or more reverberant spaces.

Constructed of premium birch plywood for strength, rigidity and light weight, the speaker has a perforated metal grille covered with cloth for a stylish overall appearance. Flying points are incorporated so that the SSE S5 can be flown with good stability and flexibility in coverage adjustment. The SSE S5 has a new Quadratic Throat waveguide, and an enclosure made from 9 ply, 13mm Baltic birch plywood and finished in textured acrylic polyurethane.

The SSE S5 has a trapezoidal-shaped enclosure, which reduces the build-up of standing waves inside the enclosure, which minimizes mid-bass and midrange coloration’s due to the cabinet. A full length perforated metal grille covered with acoustical grade grille cloth provides protection of the woofer and horn from damage.

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 an Rx 22 2" titanium diaphragm compression driver utilizing ferrofluid cooling. This horn has an asymmetrical vertical polar response, aiming the main energy lobe down 10°, 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 features the Radialinear Planar Phase Correction System, which provides smoother and extended high frequency response.

Input connection to the system is made via a 4-pin Neutrik in parallel with a two-position barrier strip. The internal passive crossover features the Sound Guard III tweeter protection circuit, and an advanced topology crossover with high performance components, to provide high power handling and reliability. Thanks to the proprietary high-frequency driver protection circuitry, Sound Guard, provides long and medium term driver overload protection when the system is used full-range, without impairing musical transients or dynamics.

The crossover provides driver roll-off and protection, as well as driver EQ for the woofer and horn, the sum total is 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.
