Peavey SSE™ 12M
Sanctuary Series 12" 2-way stage monitor — 500W continuous (White)
Our take on the Peavey SSE™ 12M by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Hear yourself loud and clear
Peavey designed their Sanctuary Series SSE™ 12M stage monitor so singers and other musicians can hear themselves clearly during a performance. Even with pounding drums and echoing rooms, the powerful SSE 12M can deliver the sound you need with pinpoint accuracy. You can position this elegant speaker enclosure at either a 30° or 45° angle, so you can get the best coverage in any situation.
This monitor handles up to 500 watts RMS, producing clear, powerful sound whether you're using it for speech, gospel music, or rock 'n roll. Peavey's powerful Scorpion Pro 1200+ 12" woofer handles the lower frequencies with ease, so you can count on a full sound. Their highly regarded 14XT 1.4" titanium compression driver broadcasts the high frequencies effectively, while the Sound Guard™ IV network protects the driver against damage from high-level playback.
The enclosure is constructed of sturdy 1/2" birch plywood with an acrylic polyurethane finish that'll keep it looking sharp. It features a Speakon input for fast and secure setup, along with speaker wire screw terminals for more permanent installations. The SSE 12M is available in black or white.
