It has a total frequency response, making it excellent for a wide range of musical applications. It makes crystal clear high frequencies to get people thumping and going, and brings out the bass. Sometimes it needs to be accompanied by a woofer to get the amount of bass you need from a speaker. You have sufficiently deep frequency response with the K12.2's that a sub is not required. The frequency range is from 45Hz to 20kHz and has a 50Hz to 20kHz response range.

It comes with DSP (digital signal processors) and DMT (directivity-matched transition), providing consistent sound quality across the whole field of listening. That means that no matter where your listeners are inside the horizontal 75-degree area, the sound should be the same as it is when you are in the speaker's direct line. One of the most important features of the K12.2s is cutting down on hot spots and muffled sound.

You will be able to attach your soundboard, or multiple boards, with two XLR line-in ports and 2 XLR line outputs and send them out to other speakers on the line.

It is a sturdy and robust speaker cabinet that can cope with a lot of abuse. The enclosure is made from ABS plastic and has different choices for mounting. To get the sound above the line of blockage from a crowd, you can stand it on the steel pole or you can use the floor wedge configuration to use it as a high-quality floor display.

On the back, adjustable knobs give you all the required parameters you need to monitor things. If you're missing something in the mix, making the changes is simple enough to make your mix sound just right. It also has saveable presets that you can return to easily, so when you're in the set-up process of a gig, there is no fiddling with settings.
