The 2 way full range NuQ122 is a switchable passive/bi-amp 1,600 Watt 12″ loudspeaker system ideally suited for a wide range of speech and music sound reinforcement applications. Engineered to work in conjunction with TURBOSOUND loudspeaker management systems, the NuQ122 provides optimal performance for FOH, sidefill and delay line loudspeakers, and is an exceptional choice for wedge monitoring applications. The symmetrical trapezoidal shape and high frequency dispersion pattern also make the NuQ122 an obvious choice for mirrored left/right monitor wedge placement.
The NuQ122 loudspeaker features a 12″ low frequency driver with a low mass voice coil for improved transient response, and an aluminium dome 1″ neodymium high frequency compression driver mounted on a 70° horizontal by 70° vertical dispersion low distortion waveguide. All drivers are matched with an internal passive crossover network in a reflex-loaded enclosure, and bi-amp mode can be enabled by means of a rear panel switch. The rear panel connector plate carries Neutrik speakON* NL4 connectors for input and link connections to additional enclosures.
Finished in a highly durable semi matt black paint, the cabinet is constructed from 15 mm (⅝”) birch plywood – and includes a rugged powder coated perforated steel mesh grille backed with reticulated foam. Multiple threaded rigging points are provided for suspension in any orientation, or for mounting with industry standard wall brackets. An optional flying yoke allows for further flexibility in install applications (available separately). The NuQ122 also features a 35 mm socket for standard pole mounting – plus integrated handles for convenient transport.
