Peavey Impulse 12D
The new Impulse 12D powered enclosure features a true ribbon driver and a 12" field-replaceable, dual voice coil neodymium speaker.
A Woofer Servo circuit monitors back-EMF and controls cone motion, ensuring the cone's movement mirrors the driving signal from the power amp, and resulting in very low distortion, high power handling and rock-solid low-frequency attack, according to the manufacturer. The advanced new ribbon driver—a Peavey design based on the ribbons used in the Peavey Versarray line array—provides 90° H x 30° V coverage.
Utilizing Peavey's IPR power amplifier technology, the Impulse 12D produces 1,200 watts of power while weighing 39 lbs. IPR amplifiers are designed with a lightweight switch-mode power supply and a high-speed class D topology said to yield "the highest audio resolution and efficiency available."
The Input section features two input channels and a line output, with a mix of I/O options such as combination XLR-1/4" jacks, RCA and Phoenix connections. Input channels 1 and 2 also have mic/line source switches and gain controls. The Auto-Off function automatically shuts off the power when it no longer detects a signal, while the Line Out allows the user to chain multiple units or send the input signal to another source.
The DynaQ section is designed to offer advanced tone controls such as Bass Enhancer, which is an overall loudness boost; a Music/Speech switch that provides optimized EQ settings for each audio type; and Contour, specially configured for program music. A module bay allows for future expansion including Wireless I/O, Delay/Time Adjustment, Mixer Expander, Ethernet I/O and more.
The Impulse 12D is housed in an injection-molded enclosure that includes a pole mount, three flying points and a tilt-back design to facilitate use as a personal monitor.
