Peavey RBN-215
« on: August 08, 2016, 09:15:21 pm »

Has anybody had any real world experience with Peavey RBN-215 subs? I heard them in a demo room at NAMM and was quite impressed, but that was a controlled environment. Anybody here with real world experiences and opinions with these? I'm seriously considering picking up a few of them.

I am assuming they include Maxxbass processing but even the manual does not specify.

No real world experience, but given the price point, I know you can do better for the money.

I like peavey and they make good stuff. This is one of those things where I believe it should be left alone until the product is proven viable. An example of something I would liken this to would be the Line 6 Stage Source series. A speaker that is probably pretty darn good, but is expensive and could be discontinued tomorrow? Peavey has gone through a series of changes and while some of their tech is reliable and has staying power, some also does not; yet. This is new, has a gimmick to it and is certainly not a serious contender in the market. The price is a bit high given the lack of outright performance and gimmick nature of the speaker. I would go with an EV Live X series unit at half the cost before this right now.

Thanks for the input. Still on the fence.
