Types of Peavey Pro Audio speakers
PA speakers (originally short for "Public Address" speakers) are designed to be used on stage. They are suitable for broadcasting live music to a wide area, which makes them useful for bands or musicians who carry their own equipment with them, as well as for venues that feature live gigs. Peavey offer a wide range of different PA speakers to suit all requirements.
Peavey PA speaker systems are a complete package of speakers, so you can set up your audio broadcasting area without the need for additional equipment to be added on.
Stage monitors are the type of speaker that you'll find at the front of a stage for a live music performance. These are designed to face 'backwards' towards the stage itself (ie away from the crowd), so the people on stage can hear the audio for themselves. Peavey produce a range of stage monitors (also known as wedge monitors) for all types of live stage production.
