QSC AP-212sw

  • $1,220.00


The AcousticPerformance™ AP-212sw is a premium, high performance, direct radiating dual 12-inch subwoofer designed for use in portable and installed sound applications. The AP-212sw provides exceptional punch while maintaining ample extension so the musically important fundamentals are solidly and accurately reproduced. With a matching profile to the AP-4122m and AP5122m full range models, the AP-212sw is an ideal companion, providing added low frequency extension and musical accuracy to the AcousticPerformance portfolio.

The AP-212sw features dual 12-inch woofers reversed mounted on a V-baffle for improved thermal protection and performance. The 15mm Baltic Birch enclosure is finished in an environmentally friendly, waterborne, polymer finish rugged enough for the demands of everyday use while also being field repairable. Internal bracing is employed to eliminate acoustic losses due to panel resonance while maintaining the lightweight enclosures robustness. Ample port area allows free movement of air resulting in minimal turbulence and port distortion.

The versatility of the AP-212sw is evidenced by two pole mount options for both vertical and horizontal applications. Furthermore, when horizontal, the AP-212sw has a shallow height, desirable for under riser installs. The AP-212sw includes four integrated handles and an optional caster kit for ease of transport.

The AP-212sw input cup features dual NL4 connectors in a crossed configuration, where pins 2 of the input are returned to pins 1 on the thru output. This clever configuration allows a single NL4 cable to carry both sub and top box signals without the need of a custom turn cable.

Presenting a clean, unobtrusive look, AcousticPerformance grilles are unadorned eliminating the need to cover-up logo treatments which can be difficult to hide or remove. The grille is also lined with acoustically transparent backing adding to the enclosure’s professional appearance. The AP-212sw is available in black (RAL 9011) finish.

To further enhance performance and speed of install with optimum result, proprietary Intrinsic Correction™ tunings are obtainable via Q-Sys networked audio processing platforms, including CXD and PLD amplifiers for a complete QSC systems solution.
