General Description

The dimensions of the Peavey SP 1G loudspeaker are 35 3/4 inches by 19 inches by 20 inches (height by width by depth), with a rear width of 13 inches. It weighs 43.1kg. The speaker enclosure is made of 3/4-inch plywood covered with black carpet and special protective polymer covering on the corners. The speaker features an expanded metal grill.

Other Features

The speaker features a 1505-8 KADT Black Widow woofer, a 44XT compression driver, a CH-7 directivity horn, trapezoidal enclosure design, and an SA-1 stand mount on the bottom of the cabinet. It can be operated using either a full range or bi-amp mode. The full range input has two paralleled 1/4-inch phone jacks; the bi-amp low and bi-amp high each have one paralleled 1/4-inch phone jack. The Peavey company states that the trapezoidal shape of the speaker has several advantages including a clearer sound with less midbass and midrange colouration. The speaker grille also has special features that protect the sensitive low-frequency driver.
