The 12", 3-way D.A.S. Audio EVENT-212.120A is a 3000W powered line array speaker module that's scalable for a wide variety of live sound and performance applications. Up to 16 modules per hang can provide sound to large-scale applications. The onboard DSP processing and LCD interface with easy-to-use presets help sound providers achieve clarity, definition, and an overall natural sound.
The speaker provides 120° horizontal coverage and 134 dB of peak SPL—plenty of volume for a broad range of applications including houses of worship, theaters, auditoriums, performing arts centers, live music clubs, corporate AV, and live sound touring/rental service providers. The highly efficient 3000W Class-D tri-amplifier powers 1000W to each of the two 12" low- and mid-frequency drivers as well as the high-frequency driver, providing crisp, detailed sound with a wide frequency range from 20 kHz down to 60 Hz.
The EVENT-212.120A is the largest speaker module of the EVENT Series, offering an extended frequency response and higher peak SPL when compared to the EVENT-208A and EVENT-210A speaker modules.
The rear panel features a balanced XLR input and thru-out as well as powerCON input and output, making power and audio daisy-chaining an easy affair. The DAScontrol audio management DSP is accessible via the built-in LCD / encoder and features Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters, which provide a linear phase response and a precise impulse response. The DAScontrol interface offers quick and hassle-free setup of systems in arrays and easy alignment with EVENT-218A and EVENT-121A subwoofer systems. Presets for the number of units of the array, high-frequency compensation for throw distances, and correction for the splay angle of the array can be selected by way of the DAScontrol and LCD screen.
The trapezoidal enclosure is constructed from birch plywood and features a black ISO-flex finish. The robust captive rigging system is simple to setup, making for fast and easy deployment of a line array with multiple configuration options including ground stacking. The single M-75 compression driver and purpose-designed injected aluminum high-frequency waveguide provides remarkable performance, sensitivity, and coverage in the formats offered. The EVENT-212.120A includes a power cord.
