Peavey Elements™ 115C
15" weather resistant surface mount speaker (60x40 dispersion)
Our take on the Peavey Elements™ 115C by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
Big, bold outdoor sound
The Peavey Elements 115C is a beast in the most complimentary meaning of the word. The speaker's 15" woofer provides excellent bass, and a 2" compression driver delivers the mids and highs. The horn can be rotated, allowing you to swap the vertical and horizontal coverage patterns to fit your space. The rugged, weatherproof cabinet makes it a superstar for indoor or outdoor entertainment at home or at work.

Overview: The Peavey Elements Series of loudspeakers feature IP45-rated weatherproof enclosures that can withstand the elements. The trapezoidal-shaped enclosures are constructed of 1/2" advanced composite fiberboard panels coated with a textured black Hammerhead poly-urea finish. The 18-gauge, powder-coated aluminum grills have 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 115C Drivers: This Peavey Elements 115C loudspeaker has a water-resistant 15" Black Widow resin-impregnated cone woofer with a synthetic rubber surround. The woofer is mounted into a vented enclosure. The high frequency section features a 2" RX22 titanium diaphragm compression driver with a 0.875" exit and 50.8mm voice coil. The compression driver is mounted in a 60° (H) x 40° (V) Quadratic Throat waveguide. If desired, the horn can be rotated 90° to swap the horizontal and vertical coverage patterns. The drivers are crossed over at 1.7 kHz (24dB/octave).
Note: Another version of the Elements 115C features a 105° (H) x 60° (V) waveguide.
Connections: The Elements 115C 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. An Indoor/Outdoor EQ option allows you to tailor the sound to match an indoor or outdoor installation.
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, 100W and 50W taps.
Mounting Options: The Peavey Elements 115C 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.
