Peavey Pro 15 Low Frequency 15" Speaker Driver
My question is in regards to speaker impedance.
While I do not consider myself an audiophile, I believe that depending on the speaker impedance that you use, the cooler or hotter your amp will run. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Therefore, if my amp states that I can use speakers with 6-16 ohms impedance, can I mix speakers in that range as long as they are in pairs?
The full answer to that question is much more complicated than can be answered here, but a short, oversimplified version- impedance is resistance to an alternating current, and in some ways can be treated like resistance. The lower the impedance the more power it will draw from the amp, and if the impedance drops too low you will cook the amp.The impedance of a speaker changes with a number of factors, including the frequency that you're playing through it, and what you end up with when wiring multiple speakers somewhat depends, if wired in series you add the values under those conditions, where if wired in parallel you get a fraction of the values under those conditions ( 1/Rt = 1/R1 + 1/R2 +1/R3... ). Things like crossover networks further complicate this.

What other drivers/components can i add with this driver to make a good sounding speaker?
It's not really designed for that kind of use, typically it would be used in a guitar/instrument bass cabinet.I've seen these kinds of speakers used successfully in subwoofer/DJ bass cabinet type applications, but you'd have a pretty difficult time putting them in a typical 2 or 3 way enclosure and ending up with a well balanced package. You could probably pull it off with some tinkering with a custom crossover network but there would be better choices for that kind of thing.

how much does the magnet weigh?
I am sorry, Peavey does not currently provide a magnet weight specification on this driver.

is this the PRO 15-8 Neo speaker
Is this the Speaker with Neodymium Magnet??
Unfortunately no, this uses a standard ferrite magnet. It looks like Peavey discontinued the neo version.
