The New Standard in Active Loudspeakers.

The QSC K12 is a 12-inch, 2-way active loudspeaker system featuring an all-new 1000 Watt QSC Class D power module outputting a remarkable 131 dB (peak). The K12 deep-throw DMT(TM) (Directivity Matched Transition) 75-degree dispersion pattern (vertical or horizontal) provides for even coverage of its 48 Hz - 20 kHz frequency response across the entire sound field, eliminating unnatural "dead" or "hot" zones in the audience area. Extensive DSP featuring Intrinsic Correction(TM) and DEEP(TM) provide for levels of total sonic performance that defy the system's size and weight while GuardRail(TM) protection, first introduced on our GX Series amplifiers protect both the amplifier module and your performance from unnatural and destructive clipping.

Combo XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs accept both Mic and Line Level input while a set of RCA phono inputs allow additional connectivity to portable MP3 players, CD players and line-level mixers. Up to three audio sources can be mixed internally and summed to a balanced output for "daisy-chaining" of multiple units. Separate direct outputs are also provided on each channel for additional output flexibility.

On-board switches provide preset EQ settings. The HF setting can be set to VOCAL BOOST for additional presence in the critical mid frequency area or FLAT for accurate reproduction of the incoming signal. The LF switch can be set to NORM, DEEP(TM) for additional bass extension or EXT SUB for use with an external subwoofer. The rear panel LED switch can be set to POWER, illuminating the front-mounted LED when the unit is powered on, OFF for applications where it is not desirable to illuminate the front LED, or LIMIT which indicates to the system operator that the clip limiter circuit has been engaged during operation.

The entire system is housed in a rugged ABS enclosure with a professional appearance that is at home in any application. ABS is a far more robust material than conventional speaker plastics and offers an additional measure of sonic clarity due to its internal rigidity. Ergonomic aluminum handles and a highly protective steel grill complete the package for ease of transport and long term durability.

The K12 also features a unique Tilt-Direct(TM) pole cup mounting system. A simple turn of the dial engages a 7.5 degree downward tilt of the speaker allowing acoustic energy to be kept on the audience and off reflective surfaces for applications where maximum coverage from a high-positioned speaker is desired. Integrated M10 suspension points allow for suspended applications with an M10 Fly Kit (sold separately) or K8 Yolk (sold separately). The K10 can also be turned horizontally and used as a floor monitor. Due to its conical coverage pattern, no additional modifications are needed. Additionally, the locking IEC power cable helps prevent the unit from being powered-off by accidental tripping on the cable.

Remote gain control capability is offered via a potentiometer (not included) connected to the on-board Euroblock connector. In an installed application, multiple K Series speakers can be "daisy-chained" for total gain control from a single remote pot.

        It doesn't get any better than the QSC K-series! These monitors are the best on the market. Not only are they easy to use, but the sound quality is unmatched compared to other systems. I have been using these for over a decade and have no intention of changing anytime soon.

              Perfect speaker to suite any venue, audience, and performance. It has very crystal clear clarity. It is excellent for any live bands; my band and I have played through the QSC K12 on quite a few occasions and we always sounded our best playing through this. We've played through this in both large and small venues, and it was great for both of them. Highly recommended for anyone looking to set up a PA system for a music venue.

                        Great speakers that you can use as mains or as monitors. As a musician, flexibility is very important on stage. The sound from these speakers are truely incredible. QSC has always had a well balanced sound and are very true and crisp. I must say QSC, you've done well on these and putting up a real challenge for EV to compete with!
