Overview

Make no mistake—the QSC K12.2 is nothing short of a game changer. With an astounding 2,000 watts of raw, Class D power at its disposal, this 12 in. speaker sets a new standard for active PA systems. From its deep, tight lows to its crystal-clear highs, the K12.2 delivers rich, accurate sound at volumes that seem almost impossible for its size. With a maximum SPL of 132dB and a frequency range down to 45Hz, you’ll swear you’re listening to larger speakers.

Equally impressive is that all this performance comes in such a lightweight and user-friendly package, making transporting and setting up the K12.2 almost effortless. But don’t be fooled by its portability—the K12.2 packs a chest-pounding punch and is built tough to withstand the rigors of professional use. Thanks to QSC’s high-grade materials and uncompromising workmanship, this speaker is designed for unwavering reliability, and is more than willing to take whatever punishment you can dish out.

This lightweight enclosure hits that sweet spot for live performers, mobile DJs and other entertainers where maximum power and clean sound at high volumes merge with portability and convenience. Thanks to the K12.2's DEEP function, more power is dedicated to the low end when you need a stronger punch in the absence of a subwoofer.

Superbly flexible, the K12.2’s on-board DSP and 11 preset EQ contours let you adapt to any venue and get your sound dialed in quickly. You can also store customized scenes to recall settings such as input type, delay, EQ and crossover.

With so much power under the hood, the K12.2 is perfectly suited for FOH as well as stage monitoring. Paired with a QSC subwoofer for extra low-end reinforcement, this powerhouse of an enclosure can effortlessly handle an even wider range of events and venues.

Heavy-duty rigging points mean the K12.2 easily adapts to both flown and mounted installations. Whether you’re a mobile DJ or a live performer, the K12.2 is an indispensible and versatile tool that lives up to QSC’s reputation for quality and reliability.

    Comments about QSC K12.2 2,000W Powered 12 in. 2-way Loudspeaker System with Advanced DSP:

    We used these new babies for the first time at our show over the weekend. We're a five piece, all live top 40 band. They sound amazing! Super clear, clean sound and the vocals really pop! All of the instruments really cut through very well. We did the show on the default DSP through a Behringer XR18 mixer since I didn't have a sound guy there to let me know if the "Live" DSP was better or Default with a 100 hz crossover since we were using a Kw-181. I can tell you for sure they are an upgrade from the regular K12's and will bring out things super clear. If you're not running a sub, they're not going to provide the same kind of low-end that the "Deep" mode provided on the other ones. These have a really tight bass and very punchy. Get you a pair! I'd advise any DJ's to pair them with a sub or two. The old ones you can run without a sub on the deep mode, but not these in my opinion even if you put them on "Dance" mode.

    QSC Raises the bar

    By Fred Rock

    from SC

    Comments about QSC K12.2 2,000W Powered 12 in. 2-way Loudspeaker System with Advanced DSP:

    I own 6 K12's, 2 K10's and 4 KW181's the new .2 series are incredible. These new speakers are clearer sounding and have removed some of the harsher frequencies you had to EQ out. They are about 3-4 dbl's louder with deeper bass frequencies on normal settings. I've even found vocals have a lot more head room with no feedback issues with the same EQ settings. The ability to chose from stage monitor, default or even instrument settings is a huge plus. Some of the EQ settings aren't necessary with a touchmix or other digital board but great to have. These allowed me to finally use my subs with QSC recommended settings without overpowering the tops. Input for tops at 2 o'clock with subs at 3 o'clock per QSC.

    Decided to spend the money, and it was well worth it! These speakers are the best powered units I've ever used and they can really put out the sound! Easy to handle, easy to program, just all around great units! I highly recommend these for any application. I'm a 30 year veteran DJ, and it's by far the best purchase I've made!

        Comments about QSC K12.2 2,000W Powered 12 in. 2-way Loudspeaker System with Advanced DSP:

        I've always been a QSC guy -- Started out with the OG K10's, added 2 KW181 subs, and then eventually upgraded the K10's to KW153's due to the growing size of the events I DJ. I love the 153's and they are amazing speakers, but they are complete overkill for house parties and smaller events, not to mention the difficulty for me to move them in/out and get them up on stands by myself. Enter the K12.2's: a perfect blend of power and portability. My main apprehension about buying them was the new design. At first, I wasn't sure if I liked some of the changes they had made (using 2 pole cups, smaller rubber feet, new on board menu) but it's hard to judge a speaker looking at it online and in bad YouTube videos, so I made the leap trusting that QSC toiled over every change and innovated in a way that would continue the K series legacy, and boy did they. These babies are everything I needed, wanted, and hoped for. Bottom line, if you are in a similar situation, they're definirely worth the money. If you have the original K series though, I would probably hang on to them because they are still pretty similar.

        One quirk to note, for the past few months, I had been checking availability online and waiting for it to say that these speakers were in stock at my local guitar center, but it always said they weren't. When I eventually called, they said they had them in stock and when I went into the store, they had tons of them. Not sure if it's a website glitch or if they are just selling faster than the availability status can be updated, but don't trust the online stock count.

        I have had the K12's for quite some time and found that these was released and went to demo them in store side by side with several others and OMG, these are beast! Clarity is amazing and loud as heck with far more headroom than the legacy K12's. K12.2 FOR THE WIN!

              Bought a pair of these K12.2 tops for a new DJ setup. Been several years since I've been in the business and things have improved so much! Compact size and big power. Haven't been disappointed yet. They are nice on their own, but planning to add a pair of KW181 subs to round things out.

              I've heard the QSC brand name everywhere and GC uses them for rentals which tells me all I need to know about quality and durability. Looking forward to 6 years of warranty coverage and even more years of service from these speakers!
