    Product Description

    The Peavey Black Widow 1502-8DT Replacement PA Speaker is a 15 inch Black Widow/Super Structure speaker with a straight-sided, ribbed, Kevlar impregnated cone for the strength required to handle pounding bass lines. Primarily a bass guitar speaker, the 1502 is versatile enough to be used for lead guitar, keyboard, and general purpose low frequency sound reinforcement. The 1502DT-4 is equipped with medium length voice coils for efficiency and high output.

    Peavey's comprehensive broad range of over-the-counter speaker components offer both the sound professional and the working musician an extensive assortment of quality components. From the Low Rider sub woofers, with incredible power handling capacity and impressive bass response to the steadfast Black Widow and BWX speakers with replacement basket assemblies, the Peavey line of speaker components is consistent and innovative.

    The Black Widow/Super Structure still remains far ahead of any of its competitors due to its performance and unique design. These state-of the-art speakers feature Kevlar impregnated cones and a high efficiency magnet structure to provide outstanding sensitivity, reliability, and performance. The Kevlar impregnated cone is stiffer than an equivalent weight paper cone, reducing the tendency of the cone to distort the shape of the voice coil, thus avoiding rubs and scrapes. Superior power handling results from the increased stiffness, especially with large cone excursions. This cone also offers lower distortion than a paper cone due to a greater dampening of unwanted cone vibrations. The piston action of the Kevlar impregnated cone is extended to a higher frequency, while the range above is better controlled, with a reduction in vibrational break-up.

    In Black Widow models 1203 and 1501DT, where the properties of a Kevlar impregnated cone might not be desirable, such as speakers designed for guitar use, a specially formulated paper cone (along with other Peavey engineered factors) is utilized to promote that distinctive tone.

    The magnet structure features a patented Peavey technology: a one piece die-cast back plate/pole piece assembly. This construction eliminates an undesirable air gap in the magnet circuit, enhancing efficiency and reliability.

    Another Peavey original is the design of the speaker framework. In the unlikely event of the failure of a Black Widow loudspeaker, the cone/basket assembly is field replaceable with a factory assembled and tested replacement basket assembly. Instead of being forced to obtain a whole new speaker, only a new basket assembly is required. Lightweight and relatively inexpensive, the replaceable basket assembly offers an easy solution to spares and repairs.

    Along with these state-of-the-art aspects, Black Widow speakers also provide the features expected in a professional application loudspeaker: a 4 inch edgewound aluminum ribbon voice coil wound on a Kapton former for high efficiency and sensitivity; a die-cast aluminum alloy frame for exacting lifelong alignment of the assembly; an extra large vent in the magnet structure for superior cooling and linearity at high drive levels; and heavy-duty spring loaded terminals adhering to industry standards for color coding.

    The Peavey Black Widow Speaker Line:
    The high technology performer that is unsurpassed.

    What is your overall opinion of this product?
    This is a tough to find (as I have found....thank you AMS!!!!) replacement speaker for my 1991 Peavey DataBass amp. It looks and sounds very good. Will handle a lotta power am sure, as the DataBass can really pump out some volume. However, it sounds a lot more "clean" than the original speaker.....the 15028DT reminds me of an old JBL speaker versus an ElectroVoice, Gauss, or Celestion. Of course this is just my humble opinion. I personally prefer a little "dirt" in my tone, regardless of musical genre. In summation, I highly recommend the 15028DT replacement for most bass guitar work, and any low end sound reinforcement. However, due to its extremely clean sound, I reserve the right to pass on my opinion of which musical style/genre I recommend for it at a later date. All the best...ROCK ON!
