In 1975, Peavey revolutionized the working man's loudspeaker with the SP1. Now, Peavey does it again with the Dark Matter series of enclosures...

The DM112 is a two-way sound reinforcement system based on a heavy-duty 12” woofer and a DX14 titanium diaphragm dynamic compression driver mounted on a 110 by 80 degree coverage Quadratic Throat Waveguide. It’s contemporary appearance coupled with exceptional performance offer an highly desirable combination.

The DM112 speaker system power amplifiers providing the bi-amplification are low-distortion ultra-reliable fan-cooled units providing a total of 660W peak available dynamic power for the system. There is 410 W peak available dynamic power for the woofer, and 250 W peak available dynamic power for the tweeter. The power supply for both amps is a linear type for good reliability coupled with low cost.

The heavy-duty 12” woofer has a warm punchy sound for plenty of bass. The DX14 compression driver tweeter is coupled to a Quadratic Throat constant directivity waveguide for smooth, even response, low distortion and good high frequency dispersion.

The light yet durable injection-molded plastic enclosure with molded-in stand mount cup eases portable use for live music or PA sound. The trapezoidal cabinet has three handles for ease of portability, and two extra angled sections on either side to allow use as a floor monitor. A full length black powder coated perforated steel grille provides system protection and a professional appearance.

Advanced Digital Signal Processing (A.D.S.P.) provides the crossover function, driver limiting, as well as the driver EQ to enable the speaker system to provide an accurate and neutral sound for any type of music. The DSP processing uses 64 bit double-precision to insure accurate and transparent sound processing, and the input/output sections use a 96 kHz sampling rate at 24 bits for maximum fidelity. Low-jitter clocking and professional grade components insure the sound quality is superb.

An extremely flexible system of user presets and adjustments is implemented in the speaker system’s DSP computing core, and accessible via the rotary push-to-select knob and the LCD display. A total of 32 presets is available, with Factory presets made available, and room for user presets to be stored in memory, that are based off of the Factory presets as starting points. Thus, once a preferred set-up has been determined for a particular venue or typical use, these settings can be saved and recalled easily.
