The Peavey Versarray 212 3-Way Ribbon Tweeter Line Source Array Loudspeaker consists of dual 12" Neo Black Widow woofers combined with a neodymium-based midrange line array, and planar ribbon tweeter line source in a cabinet with a highly flexible rigging system. Designed to provide modular coverage of medium to large venues and intended for use with the companion Versarray Sub models, the Versarray 212 offers excellent versatility and high performance.
Each of the two 12" Black Widow Neo series woofers with neodymium magnet structure is capable of handling over 500W of continuous power. The midrange is handled by ten 2.5" neo magnet drivers, providing a total of 200W of continuous power handling, at a high sensitivity of 101 dB. The high frequencies are handled by four planar ribbon tweeters utilizing a neodymium magnet system, firing into a manifold, and creating a line source, mounted to a low-distortion waveguide. Capable of handling 200W of continuous power, the tweeter line source array provides a crystal-clear high end.
Tri-amp input connection to the system is made via two 8-pin Neutrik Speakon jacks which are paralleled, or by utilizing four Neutrik Speakon 4-pin jacks, one set in parallel for the lows and one set in parallel for the midrange and high. Each 12" Neo woofer is independently wired, providing flexibility in how a line array is wired for amplifier use. Peavey's proprietary protection circuitry, Sound Guard, provides long and medium term driver overload protection for both the midrange array and the line source tweeter manifold without impairing musical transients or dynamics.
The adjustable rigging system provides for a classic straight line array configuration, or a number of different angling options, providing easy aiming of the system. The angle between the array modules is adjustable from 0° (straight) to 10° in 1° increments. Total maximum angle between the two cabinets is 10°. Quick release pins are supplied with the rigging hardware to couple the Versarray 212 modules together and set the angles between them for quick and easy field adjustments or re-configurations of a line array.
The flexibility of the Versarray system allows the use of 4 to 8 or more Versarray 212 modules in conjunction with one Versarray 118 Sub to as many Versarray 218 Subs that you can fully power.
