    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!!

    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..
