Summary: The K12 just didn't work for me guitar wise. Im sure its a great all around PA/FOH speaker, but way too boomy lows and ice pick highs and you must run some sort of post eq to use them for electric guitar work. I also received what Zzounds calls blemished, and I call dented K12, and spent some time doing grill work and painting it, so beware of blemished stuff cause it may be more than a scratch.
Summary: Bought my second one of these through ZZsounds! I am grateful for their pay as you play plan. Used these this weekend at the bar I DJ and man are they loud. I was using JBL JRX115's before these and now those things sounded like toys compared to these. They have that real professional sound to them. When switched over to "deep" mode they have a good bump to them as well.
Summary: When plugging in direct with iPod sound is flat and same with direct plug in for mic. I run my dj system to the speakers and they sound good. The bass sounds good but you need to put it on boost and switch the EQ almost every song. Played " Ghostbusters" last night ( by request ) and at 3/4 power and volume at 5 the speakers peaked! I used to have JBL EON's and the sound was better they didn't have the bass but they didn't peak for lame 80's songs either.
Summary: I owned a pair of these and thought I would buy another set so when I DJ at large establishments, I would have phenominal sound! These speakers never disappoint!! I use for of them and 2 Electro Voice subs and they rock the house! I would recommend these to any DJ!!
Summary: I Purchased (2) K12's about 3 months ago and then a Ksub about 2 months ago. I haven't gigged them much and have been really careful with them, as they're not cheap. One of the k12's went out and I had to ship it to QSC for service which cost me $80. Now my Ksub has an issue where it just cuts out and resets itself for no reason. NO telling how much its gonna cost to ship that. Very disappointed in these products.
Summary: The one thing that impressed me about the QSC K12's was the sound and WEIGHT! Being a former owner of a pair of Behringer B415 DSP's, it took me a lot to jump to the QSC brand. The sound was phenomenal! At 1000 watts, the tops did the job. I have them paired with my Behringer B8100 18 inch subs and the sound great. The Behringer tops were about 75 lbs./piece and the QSC K12's are 40 lbs./piece! That was a big selling point for me.
Summary: Stunning Clarity Compared to other components in my sound system, mostly wood boxes, the clarity and fidelity is a distinct difference in class. If you are looking for a loud, clear, no distortion box that is easy to move, set up and dial in, look no further. I use a DriveRack PA or 260 with a non-QSC 18" powered Sub (each side). I regularly get questions like: "Why is that so clear but not too loud?" or "Will you do sound for my band?
