QSC KLA12 2-Way Line Array Loudspeaker Kit with Tote
QSC KLA12 2-Way Line Array Loudspeaker Kit with Tote.
The KLA12 12" 2-Way Line Array Loudspeaker (Black) is a compact speaker designed to be used as part of a speaker array system. The speaker features a rugged ABS plastic enclosure that provides lasting durability in a lightweight package. The speaker has a 12" woofer and a 1.75" compression tweeter to provide crisp, detailed sound reproduction with a wide frequency response. An efficient 500W x 500W power amp module provides clear, strong audio. The efficient design allows up to 5 KLA models to be driven from a single 120VAC 15 amp electrical circuit.
The KLA Series brings the power and sophistication of a line array system into an easy-to-use product significantly redefining the line array product category. With its simple Lift, Click and Play approach, KLA can be deployed in a fraction of the time required by comparable line array products.
This fixed arcuate, active line array system is ideal for a wide range of portable and permanently installed applications ranging from live entertainment to houses of worship or other venues where a line array system is desired.
Housed in a rugged ABS enclosure that results in both light weight and long-term durability, the KLA12 features a 12-inch low frequency transducer coupled with a 1.75-inch compression driver. Designed to be used exclusively as a fixed arcuate line array, each KLA12 is set at a 90° horizontal by 18° vertical splay angle, allowing 90° vertical coverage arrays to be configured using only five boxes (most other solutions require six).
KLA's unique self-contained SOLO™ (Single-Operator Logistics) Rigging System enables users to quickly assemble (and disassemble) the line array in a fraction of the time without the need for special tools or external hardware.
The KLA12 Ar-Q™ (Arcuate Equalization) processing enables users to quickly tune the array, making appropriate frequency compensation adjustments based on the number of boxes. With the click of a dial, the user can select the total number of boxes deployed in the array resulting in an evenly balanced and accurate tonal curve. QSC's proprietary Intrinsic Correction™, first introduced with the WideLine™ Series, actively adjusts time, frequency and amplitude response to achieve a maximally flat bandpass target.
WORLD CLASS DESIGN:
The speaker has QSC's DEEP DSP algorithm, which provides extended bass by actively managing low-frequency transients. GuardRail protection circuitry prevents the amplifier module from unnatural and destructive clipping. An auto-standby mode will auto-engage after 5 minutes of inactivity to save energy. XLR and PowerCon input and thru connectors provide connection versatility, while a Phoenix connector allows daisy-chaining.
The speaker is expressly designed for use in fixed arcuate line arrays, and has a 12:1 design factor with a 90 x 18° coverage pattern, allowing up to 5 units to be configured for 90 x 90° coverage. Most other systems require 6 units for the same coverage pattern. The KLA12's SOLO (Single-Operator Logistics) Rigging System allows you to easily assemble and disassemble the line array in a short amount of time without special tools or external hardware.
Ar-Q (Arcuate Equalization) processing enables you to quickly tune the array, making appropriate adjustments based on the number of boxes in your array. By simply using a dial, you can choose the total number of boxes for a balanced and accurate tonal curve. Proprietary Intrinsic Correction technology adjusts the time, frequency, and amplitude response for a flat bandpass target.
Up to 2 loudspeakers can be mounted on a stand or over a sub for a ground stack, thanks to a threaded Tilt-Direct 35mm pole socket. The socket also allows you to aim the speaker 9° downward for the best audience coverage. M10 fittings in the top of the enclosure allow up to 5 units to be flown in a suspended rig. An optional array frame is also available separately for additional mounting options.
