The Peavey 215

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by ThePaste, May 27, 2001.


  1. Well, I went to a concert and was chatting with the bassist for Plug Spark Sanjay, and he had a Peavey 215. He said he replaced the speakers with a different brand (Eminence or something). His tone was really good, out of a SWR 350 and the 215, but when I looked for the cabinet in Peaveys catalouge, it didn't have it under bass amps. The only 215 I saw was a DTH or something like that. Is that a bass cab or a PA cab?
     
  2. Does anyone know of ANY Peavey 215s?

    Peavey, to the best of my knowledge, does not make a 2x15 bass cab anymore. I think they dropped that a couple of years ago.

    The cabinet that you saw on their website is a PA cab, and probably won't work that good for a bass guitar cab. The frequency range isn't where it needs to be for a bass cab.

    You can still find used ones, however. If you would be planning to replace the drivers anyway, used might be just as good a choice as new. I have seen them going on EBay quite reasonable. The only problem is a lot of people don't want to mess with shipping something that big, and if they will, it's gonna cost ya.

  4. I did a quick search, and this place has some. Check it out, then do a search for Peavey. I found like 3.

    Peavey only makes PA cabs with 2x15"'s.
    Although... I wish someone would make a 2x15 sub cab...

    Peavey most likely made something with 2x15"'s back a few years ago... But I doubt anything recently.

    Hope that helps, later.

    I like it... It's pretty darn light. It did not have the stock peavey speakers when I got it... so I replaced the cheap speakers in it with some better (but still cheap) speakers and I am very happy with it.
