Product Overview

The E12 and E12-D are high performance 2-way multipurpose loudspeakers employing an integrated coaxial driver. The E12 and E12-D can be used for speech and music applications as stand-alone full range systems or incorporated into larger distributed sound reinforcement situations and with the addition of an E15X or B4 subwoofer can also easily reproduce high level music program.

The multi faceted shape of the enclosure allows use either in an upright or horizontal orientation as well as deployment as a stage monitor. The E12 has an 80° x 50° dispersion pattern (h x v), while the E12-D has a wider 110° x 50° pattern. The horns in both loudspeakers are easily rotatable through 90° providing 50° x 80° or 50° x 110° dispersion patterns.

The E12 and E12-D can be driven either by the d&b D6 or D12 dual channel power amplifiers configured for the E12. When the E12-X or E12-DX configuration is selected an E12 or E12-D can be driven passively in parallel with the E15X-SUB from the same amplifier channel. More detailed information on specific loudspeaker setups with d&b amplifiers is available either in the relevant loudspeaker or amplifier manuals.



The E12 and E12-D cabinet is constructed from polyurethane integral hard foam with an impact resistant paint finish incorporating handles and a hidden socket to accept loudspeaker stands. The loudspeaker cabinet is also available in Special Colour (SC) and Weather Resistant (WR) options.Both options are supplied with metal plates in the specified colour covering the handle recesses and loudspeaker stand socket.
