QSC KS212C overview

  • 1Description

The KS212C from QSC, is a single-box powered cardioid subwoofer solution for mobile entertainers, AV production and rental professionals, as well as modestly-sized performance venues. The subwoofer features a 3600W Class-D amplifier module that powers two 12", long-excursion drivers in a dual 6th order band-pass design that creates a cardioid polar pattern with -15 dB SPL attenuation front-to-rear. The unit offers a frequency response of 44 to 104 Hz (-6 dB) with a peak SPL of 132 dB (@ 1m).

Typically, subwoofers are omnidirectional, radiating in all directions. This results in a build-up of low frequencies on-stage and wasted LF energy at the rear of the system. Sound engineers found a way to create a cardioid (heart-shaped) polar pattern, which removes much of the low energy at the rear of the subwoofers. Unfortunately, this system required the use of subwoofer arrays with multiple enclosures, clever placement, and processing of delay and polarity to redirect the energy.

The KS212C provides all the benefits of a cardioid subwoofer array, but without the headache of multiple enclosures and outboard processing. The single subwoofer can be deployed in a vertical or horizontal position and features M20 speaker pole fittings in either position, while the 15mm Baltic birch enclosure features a rugged paint designed for long-life and lasting durability. The rear panel offers a LCD control module with variable crossover and savable and recallable scenes, as well as Intrinsic Correction tuning and loudspeaker management. There are two combo XLR-1/4" inputs and two XLR "Pass-Thru" outputs. The KS212C ships with a locking IEC power cord.

    QSC KS212C reviews

    KS212C Powered 3600W Dual 12" Cardioid Subwoofer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound Dynamics This is a subwoofer with directional sound quality in mind from the get go. After having the new K.2 12" speakers for almost 3 months, I knew that the bottom was missing something more than a lot of bass. A long awaited preorder for this mammoth speaker finally was delivered. A simple cross-check to made some adjustments to tell the floor speakers that a sub was in the mix, set the tone for a listening experience. After a song list was sent to the mixer to play, I was totally happy with the sub output not overpowering the mid/highs. It was a clean and crisp balance of audio dynamics in the higher volume levels, even for different genres of music. Mine came with the black 36" extension pole to mount the K12.2 speaker above. Waiting for the protective padded travel case that was just ordered. Was also quieter behind the sub than the front.
