The QSC CP12 powered speaker delivers professional grade sound in an ultracompact package. Weighing just 30.3 pounds and standing only 20.3" high, the CP12 is the lightest and most portable speaker in its class, ideal for mobile DJs, bands, and anyone seeking a lightweight yet powerful PA solution. Thanks to advanced DSP and QSC's Intrinsic Correction technology, the CP12 provides accurate, full-range sound with tight bass, clear mids, and crisp highs, protecting the components from damage even at maximum volume.

The Ultimate in Portable Power

Powering the CP12 is an efficient yet robust 1,000W Class D amplifier module with passive cooling, generating ample power for any gig while remaining cool to the touch. The molded enclosure houses a 12" woofer for deep low-end response down to 47Hz and a 1.4" silk dome tweeter for shimmering highs up to 20kHz. Despite its diminutive size, the CP12 delivers a wide 75° coverage pattern to fill even large venues with pristine sound.

Simplified One-Touch EQ

The CP12 features a single Contour dial on the rear panel for fast and intuitive EQ adjustment. Select from presets optimized for dance music, floor monitor use, speech, or a flat Default setting. Additional high-pass filter settings allow using the CP12 with a subwoofer. With one twist of the Contour dial, you can achieve the perfect EQ for any application in seconds.

Road-Ready and Built to Last

Designed from the ground up for life on the road, the CP12's molded enclosure is rugged yet lightweight. The trapezoidal shape minimizes size while providing stability, and the durable finish protects against scratches and scuffs during transport and handling. Input connections include balanced XLR, 1/4" TRS, and 3.5 mm TRS, with a locking power cable to prevent accidental disconnection. With its unparalleled combination of portability, power, and reliability, the QSC CP12 is the ultimate powered speaker for performers and sound providers on the move.
