The QSC CP12 is a multipurpose loudspeaker suitable for portable or installed live-sound applications. Whether carting the speaker to gigs or installing it on stage as a vocal monitor, you'll find the monitor exhibits a powerful sound.
The monitor gives you the ability to mix up a mic/line input, a line input, and a music playback device, supplying a total of three inputs. Thus, the CP12 can function as your sole PA if you're an acoustic singer/songwriter playing anything from intimate clubs to menu-venue gigs. However, put the monitor on a speaker pole or yoke it to the ceiling, and you'll have secured a dependable element in your club's permanent PA system.
The QSC CP12 is capable of handling up to 1000W peak thanks to its Class-D amplifier, doing so through its 12" cone LF transducer and 1.4" HF compression driver. You can reach SPL values of up to 126 dB, and the construction of the monitors ensures an even frequency response from 49 Hz to 20 kHz.
The rear panel offers controls sure to be useful to your practice, whether it's the one-touch 25 dB Mic Boost switch on input B, or the contour selector switch; the latter tailors the speaker's response to better suit common scenarios such as dance floor, speech address system, and floor monitor. These contours are made possible by the DSP system programmed into the device.
Finally, the unit is relatively compact and portable. It measures 20.3 x 13.8 x 12.7", and weighs 30.3 lb, making it easier to handle than many conventional live-sound monitors or instrument amplifiers.

Amplifier and DSP
The 1000 Watt (peak) power module delivers ample burst and continuous power for the loudspeaker’s matching transducers. Convection cooling provides heat dissipation, even in extreme climates, while contributing no additional background noise. Carefully tailored, subtle and sophisticated dynamics processing is used to protect the drivers from damage and the performance from distortion. The result is a highly accurate and musical sound that maintains full signal integrity, even when pushed to high SPL.
Compact and Light Weight
CP produces a big sound from a small package. Ultra-compact and remarkably light weight, CP is easy to load, carry, lift and deploy in a wide range of portable and installed applications.
CP presents a compact, unobtrusive and stylish appearance that looks great in a wide range of applications. Both models can be utilized as either main PA (with included pole mount), floor monitor or installed via optional quick-connect yoke mount.
CP provides one-touch access to preset contours for the most commonly-used applications including Default (Full-Range), Default with External Subwoofer, Dance, Dance with External Subwoofer, Floor Monitor and Speech.
