A Value-packed Powered Mixer for Smaller Shows

The Peavey PVi 8500 powered mixer will help ensure that your performances sound great every time. Your microphones will sound crystal clear thanks to Peavey's award-winning Silencer mic preamps, while Peavey's patented Mid Morph EQ makes it easy to dial-in a great vocal sound fast. And you're less likely to have feedback issues even on small stages, thanks to the PVi 8500's patented FLS Feedback Locating System. Factor in built-in 24-bit digital effects with footswitchable control, and you've got a value-packed powered mixing solution with the Peavey PVi 8500.

Peavey PVi 8500 8-channel Powered Mixer at a Glance:
  • Built-in feedback protection for better performance on smaller stages
  • Footswitchable effects and master mute for more control over your sound
  • Patented Kosmos-C audio enhancement
Built-in feedback protection for better performance on smaller stages

If you're looking at an eight-channel powered mixer like the Peavey PVi 8500, chances are you're playing smaller venues and the small stages that come with them. And that would normally guarantee you're going to have feedback issues due to the close proximity of mics and speakers - unless you've got the Feedback Locating System in the PVi 8500. If feedback occurs, the FLS system will light up an LED on the Graphic EQ slider that you need to adjust. Get it dialed in during sound check, and you'll virtually guarantee a feedback-free performance.

Footswitchable effects for more control over your sound

If you're both mixing and performing, you'll appreciate the PVi 8500's footswitch input. Connect a standard momentary footswitch (not included), and you'll be able to defeat the built-in effects and also activate the Master Mute switch. It's an easy way to quickly mute your system for connecting another microphone, swapping out noisy cables, and other situations where you just need to kill all sound momentarily.

Patented Kosmos-C audio enhancement

Peavey equipped the PVi 8500 with their patented Kosmos-C audio enhancement module to make sure your sound is never dull or boring. Peavey explains that Kosmos-C Low control "provides 'natural bass enhancement' by adding harmonically related bass signals that track envelope of the original signal". The High control adds clarity to dull signals. Used together, you can add punch and clarity to any source.

Peavey PVi 8500 8-channel Powered Mixer Features:
  • Powered mixer with 200W (RMS at 4-ohms) per output channel
  • Eight-channel design with ultra-clean Silencer microphone preamplifiers
  • Feedback Locating System makes it easy to fight onstage feedback
  • 9-band Graphic EQ helps you tune your system to any room
  • Mid-Morph EQ makes it fast and easy to dial in a great vocal sound
  • Built-in 24-bit effects processing with footswitchable mute
  • Kosmos-C audio enhancement module lets you add punch and clarity to dull signals
  • Supports SD Card/USB flash drive audio playback
  • Bluetooth wireless audio streaming for portable Bluetooth music players
The Peavey PVi 8500 may be the perfect powered mixer for your next gig!

Peavey P I 8500 Powered Mixer

I absolutely love this mixer! This is exactly what my little three-piece band has been needing. This mixer gives us the ability to do so much more than we ever could before with our old mixer. It's smaller, more powerful and very user friendly. Thanks Brock for all your help!!

Peavey PVi 8500

Received it in a timely manner and it works great. I've used Peavey products in the past and I've always had goo luck with them.

Performed Great!

I purchased this powered mixer for a Beatles 50th Anniversary party and jam. Needed to power a few nice Peavey 15" PA speakers and also play music and backing tracks. What was so impressive is that this unit did it all!. I was able to plug in my Ipod for the party music, and it also played all our backing tracks on a USB drive. The screen was easy to see, it worked perfectly and even the backing tracks had their own channel so I could customize the sound. The power was loud enough to handle a small crowd (60), and we ran piano, drums, guitar and two mics through the unit. The Effects were good, Graphic EQ was good and I especially liked the Kosmos control to help fine tune the mix after everything was balanced. For the price of this unit - it was awesome. Thanks Peavey and Sweetwater for prompt ontime delivery even when the NE was snowed in!

Little - Light - Sounds Good

I purchased this last fall for an easy, Light, Small, pa system.. It works pretty good if your band's not super loud.. I play in a Metal Band and a Country Band.. This is more suited for the country band... (400 watts RMS at 4ohms) this sounds impressive, But all my speakers I have are 8 ohm, and yours probably are too.. It really only seems like around 85 watts per channel.. But handles any speaker with ease, even a big 400 watt speaker, when it runs out of power it doesn't actually crack or anything, it just drops off volume/power... (Digital Type Amp) so really handle every load.. The on-board mp3 player is ok, (but display is very limited) it works,, but not super clean,, and compresses when cranked.. But serves its purpose as an all in one unit for Practicing along with music.. or playing your break music. The Bluetooth is a different story, It is pretty horrible. Works about 6 feet MAX, and if you walk between unit and device the signal will get interrupted.. sound quality is not as good as if you were using the SD/USB slot... that being said.. It does the job / microphone sound is good --- If you want it punch, and Loud DJ some bass, you could add a powered speaker from the Monitor out..
