An injection-molded, 2-way speaker system, Peavey's Quadra® 10 Black is engineered in the AA tradition to deliver superior performance from a compact, durable package. The enclosure is made from very high impact, injection-molded polypropylene in a trapezoidal shape, includes extensive ribbing and bracing, and the grilles utilize perforated metal that's protected by a high-quality vinyl coating process, plus an integral foam inner layer for environmental protection.

The 2-way system is made up of a 10" long-throw heavy-duty woofer, featuring a water-resistant treated cone and dust cap for exceptional environmental stability.  The high frequencies are handled by a 14XT™ 1.4" titanium diaphragm compression driver coupled to a 1" Quadratic Throat Geometry horn that's molded integral to the cabinet. This horn provides remarkable dispersion which is coupled with a well-controlled pattern, and smooth, even response.

Utilizing Quadratic Throat Horn™ technology (US patent 6,059,069), the horn offers lower distortion than many other popular CD horn geometries.

The input connection to the system is made via screw terminal strips (one pair) giving full-range inputs.

It comes equipped with an internal passive crossover that features a Sound Guard™ II tweeter protection circuit, as well as an advanced topology crossover with high performance components to provide high power-handling and dependability. This proprietary high-frequency driver protection circuitry provides medium- and long-term driver overload protection without impairing musical dynamics or transients. The crossover provides driver roll-off and protection, along with driver EQ for the woofer and horn; the result is a crystal-clear, very smooth response. High-quality, reliable crossover components include polypropylene capacitors, high-current inductors, and input connectors. The optimal integration of the crossover with the selected drivers delivers a smooth frequency response from 74 Hz to 18 kHz.

Despite its compact size, this enclosure can put out some very serious sound levels, and can take 500 Watts program of clean amplifier power, offering an outstanding amount of clean coverage with amazing clarity.

Beamwidth is derived from the -6 dB points from the polar plots that are measured in a whole space anechoic environment. Q and Directivity Index is plotted for the on-axis measurement position. These are specifications that provide a reference to the unit's coverage characteristics. These parameters give insight for proper placement and installation in the chosen environment. The blending of the Quadra 10's components exhibit a desirable beamwidth and directivity suitable for sound reinforcement applications.

There are many different approaches to power handling ratings. Peavey rates this loudspeaker system's power-handling using a full-range form of the AES Standard 2- 1984. Using audio band 20 Hz to 20 kHz pink noise with peaks of 4x the RMS level, this strenuous test signal assures the user that every portion of this system can stand up to today's high-tech music. This rating is contingent upon having a minimum of 3 dB of amplifier headroom available.
