Overview

Make no mistake—the QSC K12.2 is nothing short of a game changer. With a redesigned, ultra-efficient power module that routes nearly twice the power to the low-frequency driver compared to the legacy K Series, this robust 12" enclosure sets a new standard for active PA systems.

Power and Portability
The K12.2's Class D amplifier produces a clean 1,012 watts of continuous power (2,000W peak) to give you deep, tight lows and crystal-clear highs for 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 a larger speaker.

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.

Customization and Versatility
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. Superbly flexible, the K12.2’s onboard 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. The speaker's bass-oriented "dance" and "live sound" DSP presets deliver more power to the low end when you need a stronger punch in the absence of a subwoofer. 

With so much power under the hood, the K12.2 is perfectly suited for FOH as well as stage monitoring. In fact, there's a unique DSP setting that's specifically designed for using the K12.2 as a monitor. But if you're running a set of K12.2s as mains paired with a QSC subwoofer for extra low-end reinforcement, you'll have a killer setup that can effortlessly handle a 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.

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.

QSC Raises the bar

By Fred Rock

from SC

Comments about QSC K12.2 Powered 12" 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.

    So Clear, So Rich, Can't wait to turn them on again!

    By Chris the Keyboardist!

    Cons

      • Live Band

      Comments about QSC K12.2 Powered 12" 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.

          Bought these for a PA setup for a 5 piece bluegrass/country band. The sound is super clear and precise. Multiple inputs give them lots of flexibility for use as mains, monitors, as an instrument amp, or background music between sets. Plenty of volume for all the venues we play. Vocals and acoustic instruments sound great through these.

The evenness and clearness is great! As the night went on, I really got to crank them up and WOW! I highly suggest these!

                    Comments about QSC K12.2 Powered 12" 2-way Loudspeaker System with Advanced DSP:

                    Defiantly feeling the hearing damage from using these for a few weeks, LOVE THEM! I have pushed them louder then my ears can take and they hold on cleanly. No issues so far, only negative about them is that some paint came off when I pealed off the stickers.
