The PR15N has a Lightweight neodymium speaker magnet to cut down on overall weight.


Also see these videos if you are unsure about putting together a PA, I found them very helpful

I don't know if you plan on running woofers but if you are, only use one. Running two may give you less bass as they tend to cancel each other out.

also the wood cabs may be a lot heavier however they will sound better than the plastic cased ones. Similar to a body of an acoustic guitar...

Thanks. I do plan on getting the $219 ones. Two way, way better.

It looks like I gotta spend $500 on an amp!!

yea PA setups can be pricey but its worth it to pay for good gear in the end.
You can always look for used gear on eBay though to save some cash. I know quite a few people who go that route and have had great luck with it all.

why not buy them cheaper?

Powered mixers are nice for beginners but you get a better sound with outboard power amps as you can match them to your speakers better.

It all depends on how much you really want to spend and what you need to use the rig for.

Brian at that youtube channel I posted put together a light and PA kit for $5,000 from ebay. He stated in that video that if anyone wanted a kit put together to give the listed info.

I have a Peavey PV14



A 800W amp that is bridged mono would give 800 to each speaker?

Could be that one of the websites didnt list it or forgot to list it...

So going around to a few sites plugging "PR15N" into the search turns up the following:

SameDayMusic - "Two-way sound reinforcement enclosure"
Zzounds - "...evens-out frequencies between the two-way drivers..."
AmericanMusical - "The PR15N is a two-way speaker system that is lightweight..."
GuitarCenter - [Not listed]

That being found, I'm willing to say these PR15Ns are two way monitors.


Cabs with two speakers, (a woofer and tweeter) are considered "two-Way" monitors.

There's even three way if you get a full range monitor with a tweeter, mid, and woofer speaker in them.

You and fast fingers are a welth of knolledge on UG about PA's.

A 800W amp that is bridged in mono means each speaker will get 800W a piece?

A stereo 800W amp can power two 400W speakers or a single 800W speaker in bridged mono as explained in that Youtube clip.

You also want to remember not to push your amp hard all day though, get an amp a little more powerful so you can turn it down.

Look up the amps at the manufacturers website to see the table on what watts it puts out in each wiring configuration.

the Peavey PR-15N, you said it is lighter cause of the neo magnet..but, it is the exact same as mine.

mine is the same wieght/deminsions as the 15N. it has the neo magnet..

so i dont know why the diff. in prices..but, personally, i think its just higher...nothing is different..

Amps have balanced connections (XLRs) to run the audio into as you may put the amps in another room to stay cool and so a long run needs a balanced connection to keep buzzing out of the chain.

The outputs will either be XLR, Speakon, or in some cheaper amps...phono.
You may need to get XLR to TRS (phono) cables to link between the speaker and power amp.
Don't confuse instrument cable with speaker cable (phono style ones). They are not made the same and one will cause buzzing and all that fun stuff...
