I have not heard or worked with DRM12A speakers, so take the value of my comments with that in mind but . . . the response curve shown looks really, lets just say, odd?  The fact that the HF drivers are crossed over at 1K and only have 1" voice coils give me chills.  In the past I have been a Mackie dealer 3 different times.  When Greg was in charge, things seemed to be good.  I am not currently a dealer and I won't retell the stories about bad service and dealer support, but they could be business school classics.  I should have learned after the 1st or 2nd time.  I'm a glutton for punishment.  I've been in this business for about 40 years.  I must be.

I used a bunch of the 2380s with 2445 drivers in my "one boxes" back in the late 80s.  See photo below as an example

But to be honest, I was taking a lot of stuff "at face value" back then, and doing very little actual testing.

I guess it depends on what you call HF.  Above 10K or so is where I was talking about.   I call it "filling out the horn".

As a general rule, the smaller the diameter of the driver (or exit) the wider it will be higher up.  It all depends on the size and the freq in question
