Peavey’s RBN Series Ribbon Driver Speakers Hit The UK
Peavey UK has confirmed the arrival of its RBN Series speaker enclosures in the UK. Available through exclusive UK distributors Barnes & Mullins Ltd, the RBN Series speakers feature proprietary 120mm true ribbon high frequency drivers. Typically used in studio environments, ribbon drivers offer unrivalled crystal-clear audio reproduction as well as wide horizontal dispersion.
The series consists of 10” (RBN 110) and 12” (RBN 112) active full range enclosures together with 2x15” (RBN 215 Sub) and 1x18” (RBN 118 Sub) sub options. In addition to ribbon drivers, the top enclosures feature dual voice coil neodymium Scorpion® speakers and a raft of built-in user-friendly features including digital compression/limiting, 9-band EQ, bass enhancement, delay and internal presets allowing users to quickly select the speaker's application or orientation via an LCD screen.
All of the RBN speakers feature two inputs, one with a combination XLR / 1/4" jack and a Ground Lift switch, and the other with a combination XLR / 1/4" jack as well as a 3.5mm jack input. Each channel has a dedicated Gain control as well as a Mic/Line level switch. Reliable performance is guaranteed through the inclusion of internal temperature monitors combined with a variable speed cooling fan, plus level and clip indication.
“Reliability is key when selecting a powered enclosure. RBN enclosures feature an internal temperature monitor combined with a variable speed cooling fan, plus level and clip indication to ensure optimal performance," explained Peavey COO Courtland Gray. “The setup wizard makes the speaker system completely user-friendly with internal presets built into the DSP, allowing users to quickly select the speaker’s application or orientation via the LCD on the rear of the enclosure next to the power amp VU meter.”
