The iQ12 is a powered two-way loudspeaker ideally suited for a wide range of portable and fixed installation, music and speech sound reinforcement applications. The driver complement includes a 12" low frequency driver with a low mass voice coil for improved transient response, and a high temperature 1" compression driver with copper-clad aluminum voice coil for extended high frequency reproduction.

Equipped with an efficient and lightweight two-channel KLARK TEKNIK Class-D power amplifier, the iQ12 provides an impressive 2500 Watts of peak output power. A high degree of control over the loudspeaker system’s performance is managed by a sophisticated, but easy to use KLARK TEKNIK Digital Signal Processor (DSP), which provides dynamic EQ for remarkable full range response at low volume levels, and transparent limiting for the utmost clarity at high output levels as well as for long-term reliability. The iQ12’s advanced DSP speaker modeling presets include accurate models of some of the audio industry’s most-respected loudspeakers.

KLARK TEKNIK also developed a highly versatile Spatial Contour Control (SCC) DSP function, which allows the user to optimize the iQ12’s frequency response for the physical speaker placement. This advanced functionality provides frequency compensation for stand, floor, wall or ceiling placement, much like the adjustments commonly found on studio reference monitors.

On the rear panel amplifier module, you will find a user interface consisting of an LCD display, Channel A and B gain controls, and a single rotary encoder for intuitive access to level, EQ, Speaker modeling, SCC, Subwoofer Integration and Feedback Control (FBI). In addition to the two combination balanced XLR/jack inputs, balanced XLR outputs for each of the two independent channels, and a Mix Out XLR connector, the iQ12 features a mic/line switch and level control with signal present LED on each channel.

The iQ12 also features Turbosound’s proprietary ULTRANET technology, which allows the use of CAT5 cables for transmitting pristine multi-channel audio signals and other information between ULTRANET-enabled products, such as digital mixers and personal monitor systems. This digital distribution networking not only eliminates the potential for RFI and crosstalk, but also reduces setup or installation time. An onboard USB port provides access for remote control of the iQ12 via PC computer, as well as DSP and speaker modeling firmware updates.

The lightweight fiberglass-reinforced composite enclosure is fitted with a rugged powder coated perforated steel mesh grille and multiple internal rigging points for permanent installations. The iQ12 is also fitted with a dual angle pole mount socket, allowing the enclosure to be pole mounted straight on, or raised and angled downward for optimal audience coverage. Mains power input and link output is provided via Neutrik powerCON* connectors.

    Comments about Turbosound iQ12 12 Inch Powered Loudspeaker:

    I don't typically write reviews and certainly don't do it right after I purchase an item. I have had a pair of these speakers for almost a year now. The sound quality is excellent, even compared to a QSC. I have used these for a "live band" event as well as a DJ event. Paired with the IQ18 subs they are hard to beat. There is a lot of "technology" wrapped up in this speaker and my guess is that most people wont use it. Since I am using the X32 Rack, I really do like the fact that I can run CAT5/6 cables to the mains, subs and monitors. Cat 5/6 cables are cheaper lighter and easier to find in an emergency. I also like the fact that there are two pole mount holes on the bottom. One, that will hold the speaker straight up, and another that will angle it forward slightly.

      Comments about Turbosound iQ12 12 Inch Powered Loudspeaker:

      I was intrigued by the way this speaker integrates with the Behringer digital mixers, something I might buy in the future. I LOVE Feedback destroying built into speakers. The EQ you can dial in with your Mac or PC is killer- 2 fully parametric eq bands, plus two shelving eq's, and so easy to use. Was sorry to see that go when I returned the speaker. The speaker modeling seemed silly and unnecessary, none of the models made the IQ12 sound great. The highly variable Xover is a great thing to have. And, any of these changes made can be saved to a User Preset, so you dial things in at home and then have them instantly available. Altogether it felt like features meant for a more expensive system were added to this one, and for the most part they really added to the speaker.

      I recently bought a QSC K10. As a keyboard player, I was floored by how open and transparent, even somewhat 3D it sounded. All of my Nord Stage sounds sounded right, like their real instruments. It has since become my reference / standard for sound editing and judging other speakers.

      The IQ12 fell short in comparison. I tried the speaker model that appealed to me the most on the IQ12, and then further eq'd it to taste. I also did this with the default IQ12 sound. Neither of them delivered the open and transparent, full of depth sound that I knew could be achieved.

      The price is very attractive, but with the extra weight (5 pounds more than most 12" 2 ways I know of), and the uninspiring sound quality, I saw no reason to hang onto it.
