aart 12 A

The aart 12 A is a self powered two-way system, designed for professional portable applications and installations, demanding the ultimate in sound performance from a single enclosure.

With a 100°H x 50°V coverage pattern it combines very high output capability with excellent sound performance and impact. It features a powerful 12”/3” (75mm) voice coil low frequency drive unit, and a 1” (25mm) exit HF compression driver with a 1.75” voice coil for extended high frequency response. The integrated high performance Class D amplifier delivers outstanding dynamic and excellent headroom.

The versatile aart 12 A suits for speech and music applications as a stand-alone fullrange loudspeaker or MF/HF speaker in sound reinforcement systems.

In combination with Solton subwoofers like SB 15N, SB 18N or Cx 215 Sub NF it makes simple and very powerful, compact and budget-efficient systems for mobile and installed applications.
