PC12-Plus: Musical and monstrous rolled into one. Spine-tingling depth and chest-thumping impact at cinema playback levels.
Nimble, yet powerful, this iconic cylinder is a heavyweight champ. Cleverly using height to advantage, it creates cabinet volume that takes its power and precision above and beyond. To musical passages it brings subtlety and nuance—breathing depth into woodwinds and richness to percussion. To movies it drops earth-shaking sonic bombs on cue; its bountiful 2300 watts-peak muscle effortlessly unleashing head-spinning sound pressure levels. All this clean, crisp, DSP-controlled bass takes up a mere 16.6” circular footprint. Elegantly finished in black velour, it will be right at home in any décor. So if you want a champion on your side, call on the PC12-Plus.
