Best all round 12 inch on the market

Thomas 23, 07.08.2017
Great sounding speakers all around. I never thought that 12 inch speakers can have so much base to them, but they do ( on the deep setting ).

Nice rounded base, clear highs, and all around, a very very good speaker for the price.

Also comes with 6 year manufacturer warranty, and you can sign up for it on the QSC website ( it took me 5 minutes max for both items - do make a scan copy of your invoice for registration purposes before you start the procedure on their site )

As cons, it might have 2, but they are really small.

1. Weight - they are 19 kg each - even though the case is basically plastic ( very well made plastic, but still plastic ). I do not have a problem with it, but for some people it might be a bit heavy for a 12 inch.

2. There is a fan on the back of the speaker that cools the amp when it reaches a certain temperature, and the fan is pretty loud ( i use the speakers indoors when i study so in between songs or when nothing is playing on them, the fan is quite loud - but this would not be the case if you use them as intended - during a DJ job or with your band at any show, as at any point there will be music playing on them, so the fans would not be audible to the audience - unless again, it is a church job or something where you have a very quiet venue, in that case, someone in the first row or standing 5 meters away might hear the fans while no music is playing on them - other than that.. cant's see how this would bother people in the audience ).

I do not think you need a Sub to use these speakers, unless you are doing a 300+ venue, in that case, ok, maybe you do, but the base coming out of them at the "deep" setting is just amazing.

Thinking of buying another pair as well, as these are very very very good all around speakers.

Also i recommend you look at the Gator speaker bags, as they do have one that goes for around 110 euro, and that has wheels on it and very good padding all around to protect the speakers.

Purchased 2 of those as well, and for 110 Euro a pice, they are a steal. The quality on them is really really good.

Great monitors and speakers.

Declan Q., 17.07.2013
I bought 3 of these for my band. We gig them 2-4 nights a week. We bought them for use as monitors coz we blew our first monitors (EVs - also 12s, but less powerful) but we also use them for the DJ too.
As monitors they are great, very loud and well able to handle serious level spikes from loud vocals.
As speakers for the DJ, we are always surprised by how much we get out of them. Serious low end, no need for subs (obviously only for weddings and the likes). And no need for amps - just straight from DJ mixer, xlr into speaker.
They're solid and well built and easy to carry. Most should be able to carry 2 at a time.
These are expensive, but will last and are definitely worth it.

The Best 12" Active speakers on the market

Gary1009, 27.10.2014
I have used Mackie srm 450s for the past 7 years and have been happy with them,Until went to a wedding recently where the dj was useing a pair of k12's and a pair of The Box Pyrit 212's.It sounded Amazing.Real nice quality sound blew my srm450s and swa115,out the window.I couldnt belive the clarity of the setup,So my subs and tops went straight on ebay,Used the k12's 6 times so far.Without the sub's and ay 3 regular venues are all impressed with the sound quality.Beauty of it is i didnt tell them i changed the speakers.Then last week.I did a wedding for 200 people at my local community centre and took the box 212's.Best sound going.
The only downside is theres only one handle on side of speakers instead of 2.
Hope this rwview is useful to you

Great sound top quality

15.06.2015
I've had these speakers a while now and they are superb. Great sound with phenomenal bass for a 12" top speaker.

Not too heavy and the great thing about them is the amount of connectivity on the rear , 2 XLRs in and rca's too!

You won't go wrong
