QSC CP12 Compact Powered Loudspeaker

Get room-filling QSC sound from a compact, lightweight PA speaker. Only 30.3 pounds, with a 20.3 x 13.8 x 12.7" footprint, the CP12 pushes 1000 watts peak.

The QSC CP12 compact powered loudspeaker is part of QSC's CP Series. The first thing you will notice about the CP Series is its compact design -- every line, angle and curve working harmoniously to present a stylish, yet rugged, appearance. Inside, CP is equipped with a highly efficient, 1000-watt power amplifier, matching transducers and advanced DSP, delivering performance beyond expectations for a loudspeaker of this size.

See how Corey Congilio uses QSC CP Series loudspeakers as part of his FRFR guitar rig:

High performance, superior quality and lasting reliability. These are the hallmarks of the QSC brand and the reason why millions of professionals the world-over have come to trust QSC to help them confidently deliver superior experiences and memorable performances. The CP Series follows in that same tradition while also offering an ultra-compact form factor and class-leading value.

Because of its compact size, CP is remarkably lightweight, making it easy to load, carry, lift and deploy in a wide range of portable and installed applications. Entertainers of all kinds, as well as educators, institutions and houses of worship will appreciate the ability to mix up to three input sources (mic/line, line and music playback device) at once, making CP a great single-box PA system that sets up in seconds. As part of a larger system, CP can be deployed on a speaker pole, used as a floor monitor or as a musical instrument amplifier. System integrators will especially appreciate read more CP's lightweight and compact form factor when attaching it to a wall or truss (via optional yoke mount). And all users will enjoy one-touch DSP control with preset contours for the most common audio applications.

I’ve tried k12 and the k12.2; when they came out with CP12, well, I just got to find out what the fuss is about.I was never disappointed! Just like the k12’s and the k12.2, I search where the red line is for this speakers...my ears gave up before I could get there!It’s loud and clear! I’m getting me another set to cover more than 200 people.Sub not needed but wouldn’t hurt. Luv QSC and the quality they make!Keep it up QSC! I hope you don’t get too greedy and go cheap on parts like the others did!
I use QsC speakers every Sunday Services as a mobile-Sound tech for our church. Sounds great and clear!
