Peavey releases powered mixers

The XR8600 powered mixer from Peavey.

14 April 2009

USA - Peavey has introduced the XR8000 Series of powered box-style mixers. The XR 8300 (2 x 300W @ 4 ohms) and the XR8600 (2 x 600W @ 4 ohms) boast many features such as their mic preamps with +14dBU of headroom.

Also unique to this range is its 450Hz mid-band Channel EQ. The XR8000 Series has a mid-band EQ set at 450Hz; This is the 'boxy' sound you hear on many instruments from vocals to acoustic guitars when they are amplified, say Peavey.

The two mixers feature a constant Q Graphic EQ with FLS. A constant Q graphic only affects the slider being moved, whereas non-constant Q graphics interfere with each adjacent slider. When used to EQ a room, this is a vital point of difference. The Peavey Graphic make it easy to remove only the frequencies that are causing the system to feedback. The XR8000 Series are also equipped with FLS (Feedback Location System). This uses LEDs above each graphic EQ slider to indicate which frequency is feeding back taking the guesswork out of setting the graphic EQ.
