Peavey PV Series Power Amp PV3
The PV amplifier features a two-way crossover and sub-sonic (low-cut) filter for each channel. Crossover frequencies are fixed at 150 Hz, allowing subwoofers to be driven at extremely high sound pressure levels, and the filters cut at 40 Hz to prevent low-end rumble. This unit takes advantage of rugged TO-3P output devices mounted on massive aluminum extrusions and dissipates heat via an extremely quiet and effective two-speed fan/fans. PV amplifiers are designed to operate at line voltages as low as 50% of nominal, employing mammoth toroidal power transformers. This amp is designed to drive a 2-Ohm load per channel, thus achieving awesome performance into 4 Ohms in BRIDGE mode. PV amplifiers are ruggedly constructed, rack-mountable pieces of gear with superb patching capability, allowing superior flexibility in application. Front panel features include calibrated, detented gain (dB) controls and LED indicators for power (PWR), signal presence (SIG), Thermal Protection indicator, and DDT™ activation on each channel, as well as a rocker mains POWER switch. The back panel contains an IEC connector, line voltage selector switch, dual primary fuses, and the critical cooling fan opening. Each channel input section includes a combo XLR / TRS phone jack connector, THRU/LOW out and HIGH out TRS jacks, and activation switches for the LOW CUT filter. Channel output sections feature twist lock connectors.
