Utilizes special IPR amp technology to pump out a massive 1,200 watts of serious sound.

The Impulse 12D powered enclosure from Peavey features a true ribbon driver and a 12" Peavey Black Widow loudspeaker engineered with dual voice coil, push-pull technology, and a neodymium magnet. 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.

The advanced ribbon driver—an exclusive Peavey design based on the ribbons used in the Peavey Versarray line array—provides 90° H x 30° V coverage, with sonically transparent reproduction.

Utilizing Peavey's revolutionary IPR power amplifier technology, the Impulse 12D produces 1,200 watts of efficient power while weighing a very lightweight 39 pounds. IPR amplifiers are designed with a lightweight switch-mode power supply and a high-speed Class D topology that yields 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 install-ready 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 offers 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 a durable, injection-molded enclosure that includes a polemount, three flying points, and a tilt-back design to facilitate use as a personal monitor.

      Comments about Peavey Impulse 12D 1200-Watt Powered PA Speaker with Ribbon Driver:

      I wish they made these speakers when I first started out being a mobile dj. I know that if it came down to the very worst, I could still 'rock the party' with just 1 speaker. 1200 watts is fantastic! My other speakers were 100 watts in total. Amazing! I would highly recommend these to everyone I talk tp.

      I'm selling my other speakers!

      from Macon, GA

      Comments about Peavey Impulse 12D 1200-Watt Powered PA Speaker with Ribbon Driver:

      The Impulse 12D is crazy good. I've never owned anything with ribbon drivers before and I really don't understand why they are better, but the proofs in the listening! All I know is I only need 2 of these for mains in a small club with my powered subs and there's plenty of headroom. I'm doing rooms with about 150-200 people with these and 2 powered Mackie subs. So far, so good, the sound is amazing and I don't have much to carry in at all. It's SOOOOO much easier than what I was doing with racks full of heavy amps and passive speakers which were heavier than the 12D anyway. I don't need an assistant anymore (sorry Tim) which saves me $75 a night!!!!! I'll have these paid off in 2 months from that alone. Life is good. THANK YOU PEAVEY!!

      Comments about Peavey Impulse 12D 1200-Watt Powered PA Speaker with Ribbon Driver:

      I had this on backorder for months and months. Well, it was worth the wait. This is absolutely the best sounding speaker I've ever owned. It never runs out of gas and allows me to run my grocery hole in front of the crowd and know that everyone out there can hear me clearly. It's very clear sounding, which I assume is because of the ribbon driver. It's also got some special thing in the circuitry that changes the EQ as you turn it up, which is supposed to minimize ear fatigue. I'm not sure which evil genius figured that out, but it's awesome that they did! Buy this, you will not be disappointed.
