Peavey Impulse 12D Ribbon /upgrade ?help
 
Hello all, I have a pair of Peavey impulse 12d . nice sounding speaker however I am looking to upgrade the 12" driver to match the ribbon sound better. lookin at ciare 12" and faital 12" . some issues and concerns, this is a active crossover @ 2k[24db.] peavey woofer is a 4 ohm [dual 8ohm vc run in parallel]98db 1w/1m.really like the ciare drivers but only come in 8ohms but is 100db . any suggestions advice welcome !!enclosure is about 2.4 cu.ft.

With an active crossover you don't care about impedances and senstitivities you just match the amp; much, much easier than trying to maintain damping factor with disparate drivers in a passive set up. You might be forced to bridge a power amp to match new drivers, or even buy a new, higher powered amplifier, but matching levels on a system like that is no problem, and the set up will work straight off.

Yes but that is the issue don't want to change amp and the active crossover is fixed at 2k.[amp and crossover are together]. lookup peavey impulse 12D

Do yours have a broad scoop out of the frequency response, with the center frequency at about 1.5khz?
