Pristine Full-Range Power
Extremely high output and uniform energy dispersion over a very wide and deep sound field. The DV12-MKII single 12″ Top offers ultra-high-fidelity, full-range music reproduction, excellent speech intelligibility, extremely wide dispersion, and even sound projection over distance. The MKII update has brought deeper frequency response, better performance, and improved ergonomics. With frequency range now down at ±3 dB to 40 Hz in full range mode, the DV12-MKII offers more bass output than many mass-market subs.
Specially-developed high-performance woofer features increased excursion and power handling capabilities with reduced distortion. Upgraded compression driver from a 2.5” to 3” diaphragm, featuring smoother frequency response and increased sensitivity. Updated cabinet tuning takes advantage of improved low-frequency performance of new woofer. Multiple handles have been added, making set-up even easier.
The result is even higher output, resolution, depth and detail than the original. With the MKII, the DV12 again sets the standard for the full-range compact main loudspeaker.
How High How Low
The DV12-MKII uses a line-array derived 1.4” throat isophase wave guide instead of a conventional horn. The result is a combination of very wide and consistent horizontal coverage (120°) with a tight vertical pattern (20°) that extends high frequency projection farther than a conventional horn.
The lower frequencies are produced by a 12” woofer that features an ultra-light carbon-fiber impregnated cone for outstanding resolution, a cast aluminum basket for rigidity and reliability, a Neodymium magnet for light weight and high efficiency, a 4” voice coil for high power handling and a symmetrical, long-excursion suspension for accurate and extended bass response.
Power & Precision
The amplifier can deliver output peaks of 150V, to provide amazing dynamic resolution and impact. It also has a 10,000:1 damping factor, which provides extremely tight control over the cone. The fully integrated and comprehensive digital processing ensures smooth response and reliable operation thanks to meticulous filter alignments and dual stage limiters that protect the drivers from excessive peaks, and also from thermal overload, by monitoring real power output over time. The amplifier features a large heat sink and 2 temperature-controlled fans to ensure consistent operation under even the most extreme conditions.
Plug & Play
The DV12-MKII is the ultimate in plug and play, with universal voltage compatibility and no need for any outboard gear other than a sound source. The processing features presets that allow it to run in several configurations. The first is full-range mode, with response down to 40Hz (-3dB). The other presets allow the DV12-MKII to be integrated with various types and sizes of subwoofers. Each preset has a specific high-pass filter frequency, input sensitivity, high and low frequency limiter setting and subwoofer alignment processing. The DV12-MKII can be combined with any BASSBOSS subwoofer because all the presets are programmed to align with all the subs. Each preset offers different advantages that suit certain applications and preferences. No matter which preset you choose, your BASSBOSS subs and DV12-MKII tops will always play in harmony.
The cabinet is assembled in the USA from premium selected 15mm Finland Birch. The design incorporates a 4-degree down-angle that ensures even distribution of high-frequency energy from front-to-back of a venue when the DV12-MKII is placed at the appropriate height on a tripod or support pole. Additional features include a 38mm (1-3/8”) cast metal pole socket, eight fly points and six handles.
The amplifier is recessed from the back of the cabinet to protect it in transit. A perforated steel grill protects the woofer, and its progressive perforation pattern serves to broaden midrange dispersion. The high-frequency lens and port are left clear of the grill to minimize reflections and air flow noise that could compromise sound quality.
Should you ever need more sound than can be produced by one DV12-MKII per side, its invertible array feature allows perfect summing of two speakers, which provides a big increase in output and projection without compromising the crystal clarity. To further utilize the advantages of the line-array waveguides, the DV12-MKIIs are designed to stack with the HF lenses vertically aligned. This allows the high-frequency sections of two boxes to sum perfectly as they would in a line-array while the low-frequency sections sum in a column for improved low-frequency directivity and greatly increased output.
There is finally a speaker that allows two completely functional stereo systems to be combined into one without having to compromise, either when they are together, or when they are separated.
