NAMM 2010: Powered Loudspeaker Impulse 12D Launched by Peavey
Peavey proudly announces the new ImpulseÂ® 12D powered loudspeaker enclosure, which incorporates exclusive Peavey audio innovations to give consumers unprecedented power, sound reproduction and light weight.
The new Impulse 12D powered enclosure features a true ribbon driver and a 12? Peavey Black WidowÂ® 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 new ribbon driver?an exclusive Peavey design based on the ribbons used in the Peavey Versarray? line array?provides 90Â° H x 30Â° 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 26 lbs. 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-Â¼? 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 pole mount, three flying points and a tilt-back design to facilitate use as a personal monitor.
