    Just curious, would the 12's be an improvement over for stage monitor purposes?



    Peavey Impulse 200's

    and

        Question....



        Ok, so I have used for the past 4 years as monitors, 2 Behringer B212a and 2 Yorkville yx15p.



        Would four of the 12 inch cabs and a couple of ipr's be a slight upgrade ?




        IMO, yes.

            Yes, for the TLM, probably not for the impulse (other than cosmetics)

                My monitor amps are a pair of Peavey IPR1600's and I'm very happy with them. I do have a couple of these and if pack (and stage) space wasn't an issue I'd run six of them:

                http://www.loudspeakersplus.com/prod...PI-CABSSL112M/

                Advantages are lighter weight and plywood cabs. Disadvantages are no SpeakOns and no pole mounts - and I think the DUS's have stronger HF drivers and better support . The DUS are still well under my 50 lb "not stoopid heavy" limit .



                OTOH the B212A (or newer "D") cabs are surprisingly decent sounding as monitors (they are biamp'd) and I'd not want to bet that the DUS or Loudspeaker+ cabs sound better. YMMV ...

                        ^ It would be an interesting comparison - both using Chinese drivers, one with an active crossover and biamp'd vs the other with a rather good (from the pics) passive crossover.

                            Andy. Does that mean you find the Impulse comparable to MXR? You made a comment about the DUS being on par with MXR

                                Do you mean MRX?



                                Yes, similar though the weight of the MDF is heavier. Sensitivity is within a dB or so, and power handling is about a dB shy as well (using my normalization to real world).



                                If you are in the area, give me a call and you can play around with them.
