The QSC AcousticDesign AD-S12 12" 2-Way Surface Mount Black Loudspeaker is ideally suited for a wide variety of foreground and background sound reinforcement applications. The AD-S12 features a high quality 12" weather treated paper cone woofer on a 3" voice coil. A carefully selected 1" exit, 1.4" compression driver perfectly matches the sensitivity and performance of the woofer for outstanding full-range reproduction.

Consistent and even 75deg. axi symmetric (conical) coverage is achieved through DMT (Directivity Matched Transition), a QSC innovation which matches the directivity patterns of the woofer and the high-frequency waveguide at the crossover point. The result is a coherent transition between transducers and improved off-axis response. With rugged ABS enclosures, sealed input panel covers and powder-coated aluminum grilles for weather resistance, the AcousticDesign surface mounted series exceed IEC60529 IP-54 ratings for dust and splash resistance.

Installers will appreciate the award-winning X-Mount system included with each full- range AcousticDesign model. This ingenious mounting solution achieves unprecedented ease-of-installation in horizontal, vertical, wall or ceiling deployments. Knurled surfaces at the pivot planes ensure the load will not drift or sag over time. Articulation marks allow preconfiguration of the X-Mount while on the ground with no special tools required. Once secure, the loudspeaker installs in seconds, allowing the installer to work safer, smarter and faster with repeatable results.

The AD-S12 also includes M10 fittings for optional yoke mount (YMS12) or shoulder eybolt (M10 Kit-C) accessories for installation versatility. To further enhance performance and speed of install with optimum result, advanced voicing filter sets using QSC Intrinsic Correction techniques are obtainable using Q-Sys networked audio processing platforms, including CXD amplifiers for a complete QSC systems solution
