Very solid product
Knga7, 12.04.2019
I use QSC system for small/medium events up to 500 people. QSC CP12 are used either as monitors, side fills, front fills or delay lines. I really like their small format, but even though, they are still pretty powerful speakers. Six different voicing contours are great to use for different purposes. Floor monitor for monitor use, ext sub to use as side/front fills with KS woofers and speech for stand-alone operation. Stereo 3,5mm TRS connector is also really handy for that. Built quality is again on the side of QSC, CP12 feel really solid and well built. In terms of sound, they are of course not as good as K12.2 (logically, because they are lower price range), but they still sound very present, QSC like sound quality.

Pros:
- really compact, lightweight, small - easy for one-man job
- pretty strong for their small format
- very useful for different applications

Cons:
- with 126db SPL there is limit for types of applications for example for bigger stages, but that is not what CP12 is meant for
- under some conditions (type of music, weird PA environment) I felt they could be a little harsh on high-mids.

Total:

Really good speakers for this price range, which is pretty affordable. Build quality is solid, great features and good sound.

Bisher haben alle meine Lautsprecher einen Preis von über 1200 Euro pro Stück. Ich habe also eine ziemlich hohe Messlatte für die Klangqualität. Nachdem ich drei Wochen lang verschiedene Tests gesucht und studiert hatte, entschied ich mich für QSC CP12 und es ging mir gut. Die Boxen klingen transparent. Sie haben eine gute Auflösung und einen klaren Klang in der gesamten Band. Sie klingen angenehm warm, der Bass ist aufgrund einer so kleinen Box unglaublich sauber und tief, die Höhen sind detailliert und sie gehen sehr gleichmäßig hoch. Die Mittenfrequenzen sind ausgeglichen mit einer leichten Zunahme im tieferen Band. Dies kann jedoch leicht mit dem Master-EQ verglichen werden. Ich würde das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis als ausgezeichnet beschreiben.Meine Gitarre (mit Kemper Stage) klingt auch großartig. Verstehe mich richtig. Natürlich klingen sie nicht wie Boxen für 1.500 Euro, aber für schwache 500 Euro ist der Sound wirklich sehr gut.
Fazit: Ich kann es nur empfehlen. Sie werden wahrscheinlich keinen besseren 12-Zoll für diesen Preis kaufen.

Klingt super!
KeineAhnungVonNix, 02.11.2019
Gekauft als Paar für DJ Anwendungen, ohne Sub bis 60 Personen in kleineren Räumen, mit 1x 18 Zoll Sub bis 120 Personen in den passenden Räumen.

Klingen wirklich gut, allerdings nur im Preset "Default" oder "Default mit Sub". Im Modus "Dance" wird die Box erstaunlicherweise recht schrill/hart in den Höhen. Das gefällt mir nicht so gut. Die Presets Sprache und Monitor habe ich nicht probiert, da uninteressant für mich. Aber die neutrale default Einstellung ist astrein. Sehr gut ist auch, dass es kaum Rauschen im Leerlauf gibt, keine störenden Lüfter und keine nennenswerte Feedbackanfälligkeit.

Das Handling der Box ist super. Gut zu tragen, schön leicht, schön kompakt (etwa so groß wie eine 10 Zoll Box). Nicht so gut gefällt mir, dass es keine Feststellschraube für die Stativaufnahme gibt. So muss man immer den K&M Ringlock Adapter dazu benutzen. Ebenfalls nicht so gut gefällt mir die Verarbeitung. Die Box sieht generell von vorne super und edel aus. Allerdings sieht das Gehäuse der Box bereits beim Auspacken irgendwie leicht gebraucht aus, was an der Verarbeitung, bzw. dem Material liegt. Das Gleiche ist mir nämlich auch bei der CP8 aufgefallen, die ich ebenfalls im Bestand habe. Deshalb und wegen der fehlenden Feststellschraube ziehe ich 2 Sterne bei der Verarbeitung ab.

Insgesamt kann ich eine klare Empfehlung für diese Box aussprechen. Guter Klang. Auch die erreichbare Lautstärke ist in der Praxis mehr als ausreichend. Andere Hersteller geben in dieser Klasse teilweise höhere db Peak Werte an, sind aber ganz sicher nicht lauter. Ich bin mir trotzdem noch nicht sicher, ob ich sie behalten werde. Sie sollen meine Yamaha DXR10 MK2 ersetzen, weil ich gehofft hatte, dass sie mir Volumen im Sound bringen, bei quasi gleicher Größe und Gewicht. Das tun sie aber für mein Empfinden nicht zwingend. Ich finde das insgesamt recht ähnlich vom Sound her. Von daher überlege ich, meine Yamaha zu behalten.
