DC 12

  • 2-way full-range loudspeaker system Loaded With 12"/1"
  • Very precise coverage in horizontal and vertical axes(90 x50)
  • 123dB Max. SPL
  • Multifunctional trapezoidal enclosure with 9 flying points
  • DC-12 Misusefulaswedge monitor

The DC-12 is a compact full range, high power loudspeaker system with 12" and 1" transducers With a coverage of 90 x 50 degrees, the DC-12 is the ultimate tool for medium and long throw applications If a wider horizontal coverage or a higher SPL is needed it is possible to combine more systems to powerful arrays with very homogenous sound dispersion Even at distance the DC-12 sounds very direct, also at very high sound pressure levels the sound is crystal clear and free of color-tion For music programme the use of a subwoofer is recommendable

The well-considered design of the DC-12 enclosure and the variety of mounting hardware options allow flexible usage in various sound applications With the 1.75" driver the DC-12 has the best of both worlds: the fine resolution of a 1.75" driver and the pure power of 1" driver The Horn provides consistent pattern control in both axes already from 1.8 kHz upwards The highly efficient 12" loudspeaker in an optimum ported enclosure produces dear, bone dry lows with high sound pressure levels

The total quality of a passive loudspeaker design, like the DC-12, depends not only on the use of very high quality woofers and drivers, but a major part of the overall quality depends on the design of the cross-over network Apart from the exactly turned compensation filters, we use for the first time a passive two step all pass filter, to optimise the phase response and time alignment between the two transducers The result is a hardly noticeable transition between the woofer and the horn driver and a perfect "off axis" frequency response starting at 500 Hz For extra safety there is a built in limiter circuit for the 1.75" driver

The DC-12 can be used in horizontal and vertical plane A revolving 90x50 degree flare gives the freedom to adjust the DC-12 for the wanted coverage The enclosure has a trapezoidal shape with two cluster angles, 9 signal stud rigging points and an internal pole mount The DC-12 M version has one side with an angle of 40/50 degrees for use as a floor monitor

With the DC-12 the most exacting user gets an excellent full range system that combine the highest possible audio quality with impressive high sound pressure levels
