The low profile enclosure contains a 12” (305mm) neodymium LF drive unit with a coaxial 1.4” (36mm) exit HF compression drive unit, linked via the internal passive crossover network. Both the LF and HF drive units share the same magnet assembly, reducing overall weight and enclosure profile – making the M-C12 one of the lowest profile 12” stage monitors on the market today at only 316mm (12.4”) tall. The HF drive unit is coupled to a bespoke constant-directivity waveguide, which produces a 40°H x 60°V dispersion pattern on stage.
The robust enclosure is constructed from premium multi-laminate Birch plywood and is finished in impact resistant textured paint. The enclosure contains a pair of M8 threaded mounting points in each end for attaching the optional flying hardware, and a 35mm polemount is hidden discreetly inside one of the handles to allow stand mounting. When used in this way as a powerful front of house loudspeaker, the waveguide produces a 60°H x 40°V coverage pattern.
The M-C12 is finished in a rugged black textured polyurethane as standard, though RAL colour matching and weather protected outdoor options are available. The front of the loudspeaker is protected by a rigid 2mm steel grille backed with acoustically transparent fabric and supported by steel braces for additional strength. Two flush handles and protective floor skids complete the hardware package, and a single NL4 connector is provided on each end within a sculpted recess for discreet cabling.
The M-C12 requires a single amplifier channel, and should be used with professional power amplifiers capable of delivering 750-1000W RMS into an 8-ohm load. For optimum results, the EM Acoustics DQ10 or DQ20 Advanced System Amplifiers, or the AQ Series power amplifiers in conjunction with the DSC48 system controller (for loudspeaker protection) should be used.
