Quest - QM12MP Left - High Power 12" Loudspeaker


QM12MP?High Power 12" Loudspeaker

QM12MP Multipurpose monitor is a combination high-output stage monitor/front of house speaker in a compact low-profile enclosure that features a number of thoughtful design features that will be appreciated by any professional who has had to face the challenges of fold-back under high pressure conditions.

Functional as both a compact front of house or high powered stage monitor system, the QM12MP is available in left and right mirrored versions. Recommended amplifier power is a very respectable 500W RMS. Pole mounting and Aero-track fly-ware makes the QM12MP a very flexible addition to any audio production inventory.

An Inside Look

Great sound aside, the QM12MP was designed and built for the toughest live sound environments. A quick look inside reveals the components and build quality are extremely heavy duty in nature. The casing is high quality reinforced plywood with a structural supporting ring to hold the HF driver and add to casing strength. The high frequency driver is a large format 3? coil transducer capable of very high power. The HF driver diaphragm is a titanium alloy of heavy gauge which minimizes resonance at high SPL.

The bass driver features cone geometry engineered to give deliver a particularly flat response when the QM12MP is functioning as a floor monitor. Recessed Speakon connector inputs protect connectors from accidental impact damage on a dark stage while steel reinforced neoprene floor runners help hold the box in position on a slippery wooden stage. As a final touch, the steel protective grill features a "singer proof" design fabricated in heavy gauge steel.

Plug In a Microphone

The notable sonic feature of the QM12MP is the extremely smooth frequency response and high feedback rejection when used as a floor stage monitor, with a standard professional vocal microphone. No system processor is required to attain this level of performance making the QM12MP a great partner to virtually any existing system.

The left and right mirrored HF horn configuration helps lower interference effect between the monitors when used as a monitor pair on one send. The overall effect of both industrial and audio engineering is to make the QM12MP one of the most reliable, functional and easy to use fold-back monitors available today. Simply turn it on and turn it up, it never fails to impress.

Not Just a Great Monitor

MP means multi-purpose. The QM12MP can also be a great front of house box as a standalone or as part of a multi way system. The system comes fitted with the 35mm speaker pole top hat and can be stand mounted or hung with an optional aero-track fitting from the casing top installed fly-track.

Wooden Body, Steel Faced

The QM12MP chassis is made of the same heavy duty birch ply wood as our high performance and industry trusted HPI systems. Finished with an extremely resilient black coating and fitted with a wrap-around heavy gauge protective steel grille, the QM12MP has been crafted to endure even the most demanding environments and is built to last.

Power Me Up

The QM12MP is a powerful multipurpose system. Quest Engineering recommends an amplifier capable of delivering 550-800W (8ohm) to ensure full performance. The perfect solution are Quest's QA3004 or the new QX4500.
