Meta Analysis Overview

Our rating of 98/100 is based on analysis of 500+ sources comprised of online reviews and discussions. Under the Pros and Cons headings below you'll find a condensed analysis of what those owners and users have been saying. Feel free to ask questions or add your thoughts in the comments section.

QSC is well known for audio quality, and their K.2 Series takes their quality up a notch, with improved power distribution efficiency, better DSP controls via LCD, user adjustable crossover, and better floor wedge angle.

The K12.2 in particular is also louder than its predecessor, with a max SPL of 132 dB.

This means that the well received K12 just got better, while carrying over the same top notch build and sound quality that people have come to expect from QSC.

With its 12" woofer, you can expect the resulting sound to be full with good low end, yet it is still compatible with sub-woofers, thanks to its user adjustable crossover frequency.
