NEXO has always been well-known for its compact and very powerful versatile point source speakers, ideal in both FOH and wedge application. This expertise is now applied to the P12, featuring a new extremely powerful coaxial 12” speaker and lots of innovation, making the P12 unique in its category.
- Extremely powerful (138 dB peak) point source that can be used for FOH or monitor, with or without its companion sub the L15
- Lightweight (20 kg / 44 lbs) design using custom-made 15 mm Birch and Poplar bent plywood
- Modular directivity: from the Standard 60°x60° horn to the rotating 90°x40° or Asymmetric (”PS like”) pattern in a few seconds
- Quick release Magnelis® steel grille for easy access to the horn magnetic flanges
- Dual ultra-low distortion shaped bass port
- Comprehensive range of versatile, accessories for deploying the P12 in a wide variety of applications for both touring and fixed installation
Advanced NEXO technology included
The P12 is built around a 15 mm custom-made bent plywood shell, with poplar veneer for the inside layers and birch on the outside. The result is
a robust enclosure with exceptionnally good sound quality and light weight.
The bass-reflex tuning is done through two computer optimized shaped port which guarantee ultra-low distortion even at very high level. Two large comfortable handles on each side (on Touring version only) hold a 35 mm pole stand adapter and a Speakon® connector for discrete connection when on pole stand or in wedge monitor mode.
The back plate holds two other Speakon® connectors and a recessed switch to change the cabinet from 2-way passive to 2-way active (on Touring version only). The Installation version is passive only and has a cable gland with a 2 core cable for audio input ensuring IP54 protection. The internal passive filter is encapsulated in a certified resin to protect components from vibration and dust, ensuring an extra-long life. The custom-designed common neodymium magnet coaxial driver with a 3.5” voice coil for the LF driver and a 3” diaphragm for the HF motor is the heart of the P12 and responsible both for its smooth, clean sound and enormous power.
One box fits all applications
Thanks to its fully symmetric design, there is no left or right version of the P12 and all speakers in inventory can be the same. To match even more precisely every possible application the directivity of the P12 can be changed in seconds through the addition of an optional magnetic flanges.
As standard, the P12 uses a 60°x60° horn, but the front steel grille can be quickly removed without tools (on Touring version only) and the optional rotatable 90°x40° or Asymmetrical (”PS type”) magnetic flange can be added to change the dispersion characteristics of the P12.
For each optional flange a dedicated setup is available on the NXAMP powered controller to ensure perfect coverage at any frequency. The results are even better in Active mode, where the crossover frequency can be adapted to offer the best coverage.
P12 acoustic phase response is NEXO phase signature allowing inter-operability between all NEXO speakers at all cross-over points, except for the monitor setups where latency is minimized.
