Product Research


Overview: The Peavey Elements Series of loudspeakers feature IP45-rated weatherproof enclosures that can withstand the elements. The enclosure is constructed of 1/2" advanced composite fiberboard panels coated with a textured black Hammerhead poly-urea finish. The 18-gauge, powder-coated stainless steel grill has a barrier membrane that repels water, yet allows moisture to escape, without affecting the sonic performance of the speaker. Elements Series loudspeakers are recommended for stadiums, arenas, and multi-purpose facilities, as well as houses of worship, live music venues, theaters, gymnasiums, and performing arts centers.

Elements 212C Drivers: This Peavey Elements 212C subwoofer loudspeaker has two water-resistant 12" Black Widow resin-impregnated cone woofers with synthetic rubber surrounds. The woofers are mounted into a vented enclosure.

Connections: The Elements 212C has a recessed input cup with a sealed cover plate for protecting the connections from the elements. The input connection features a pair of 4-pin Neutrik NL-4 Speakon connectors. In addition, there is a 4-position screw terminal strip, wired in parallel to the Speakon connectors, for bare wire termination. A plastic gland nut is included for cable strain relief.

70V Option: An optional, field-installed, 70V transformer is available if you choose to upgrade. The transformer is pre-mounted on a plate that replaces the input cup cover plate. The optional transformer has 400W, 200W, and 100W taps.

Mounting Options: The Peavey Elements 212C can be mounted in a variety of ways. The speaker has twelve 3/8"-16 threaded mounting suspension points (3 top, 3 bottom, 2 each side, 2 rear). Four 3/8" eyebolts are provided for suspending the speaker from above at up to a 45° angle. There are also three sets of four 1/4" x 20 set-screw inserts on the top, rear, and bottom, for use with the Peavey Versamount 70+ and the Peavey Elements Pole Mount bracket.

Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

I have a crown XLS2002 and a Onkyo 8160. I am thinking on purchasing the Peavey 212. Will the Onkyo and Crown be enough to drive the sub? Or will I need to purchase an additional Crown?
[ Fred  Apr 27, 2018 ]

That Crown amp will be enough to power this subwoofer and even give you some headroom to help prevent distortion! All the Onkyo will do is supply the signal to the Crown amp and you should use the Sub output on it with an RCA Y adapter to feed both inputs on the amp. HTH! My Bio:
