QSC K12 12" 2-Way 1000 Watt Powered Speaker

You Pay: $849.99
Product Highlights
  • Powerful, Lightweight, & Versatile
  • 1000 Watt QSC Amplifier Built-In
  • Strong ABS Enclosure, Tough Steel Grille
  • 35mm Pole Sockets with Tilt Capability
  • Mix & Output Three Signals Internally

Packed with a powerful 1000 watt amplifier, a tough yet professional looking exterior, and some really flexible input and output mixing capabilities, the K12 from QSC stands out as a great option in the active loudspeaker market. Since powered speakers get used in many different kinds of ways, the K12 has been equipped to adapt to any situation.

You can use the K12 as a stand-alone PA system, without the need for an external mixer. Simply attach a microphone directly into its XLR combo input, and if needed, attach a second sound source to the other XLR combo input, and a third source (such as an MP3 player) to the RCA stereo input. There are two gain knobs that you can use to balance the mix, and a dedicated XLR output that outputs the mixed signal to a second K12 or any other active loudspeaker. For more involved professional installations, there are designated suspension points and kits available, and a Euroblock connector to remotely control the gain.

The back panel features a couple of easy-to-use switches that allow you to accentuate a person's speaking voice, or to add depth to the bass in music. Don't let the simplicity of the controls fool you; extensive digital signal processing is going on under the hood of the K12 that help it achieve its amazing sound quality. There's even a tilting feature in its standard 35mm pole mounting socket that enables you to point the K12 down toward the audience, so they can fully experience and appreciate your program material. If you're looking for a reliable powered speaker that's filled with useful functions and supplies great sound, look no further than the QSC K12.

Integrated DSP technology dramatically improves overall sound quality and total output
Robust ABS enclosure adds an external toughness, creates a clean and professional appearance, and gives the K12 an internal rigidity that adds to its sonic clarity
18 gauge steel grille will protect the speakers for years to come against the rigors of touring and live use
Inputs include a combo XLR and 1/4" TRS jack for mic or line level signals, and a stereo RCA jack for connecting MP3 players and other devices
The LED light on the front panel illuminates when powered on, you can disengage the light completely, and it can be put into LIMIT mode where it will only illuminate when the clip limiter circuit activates
The cast aluminum handles have been designed to make transporting the K12 as comfortable as possible
35mm pole sockets are built-in and feature a Tilt-Direct functionality that allows you to aim the acoustic energy of the drivers downward at a 7.5 degree angle to better reach your audience
M10 rigging points and M5 yoke attachment points are integrated into the design
Can be used as a stand alone PA, as a stage monitor, or as a FOH speaker

                  I bought the K12s to use for smaller gigs for my mobile Dj service, but after using them I think I am going to use them on most gigs and maybe only bring out my large mains for bigger venues. I am very impressed with the sound quality and loudness. The "Deep " setting is great for dance songs where you want a little more bass but don't want bring a sub. Great Speaker and with the B&H Stand And cable Deal I also got a great buy! Thanks again B&H for another Great Shopping Experience!

                    Hands down the best Active Speaker out there! Easy to set up, numerous audio connections and unclipable. DJ'd the high school prom of 400 and told to turn it down...the K-12s's ROCK!!!

                      This speaker is really amazing. It's got loads of power and provides more low end than you'd expect from a 12" speaker due to QSC's 'DEEP' technology. I would definitely recommend this product.
