  • Details


    Designed for incredible sonic clarity and true full-range performance, the DV12 is simply the best single 12″ top on the market.

    A high-impact, wide dispersion and long-throw cabinet with the ability to fill many venues without the need for a subwoofer. In Satellite Mode, when the DV12 is paired with a BASSBOSS sub, its abundant power is used to provide even higher output levels in the mid and high ranges. With extreme SPL for its size, it offers significantly more output than competing cabinets.

    Ultra-wide 120 degree horizontal dispersion covers wide audience areas easily. Its line-array wave-guide provides tight vertical pattern control resulting in improved clarity at greater distances. This design also provides more even sound level over those distances than conventional horns.

    The DV12 has the BASSBOSS Invertible Array feature which provides for coherent summing of two arrayed boxes. This allows the system’s output to be scaled up significantly without compromising sound quality or coverage. The two line array wave guides couple to provide coverage for much larger audiences with only 2 boxes per side.

    No need to hold back!

    BASSBOSS Tops and MicroMains are optimized and protected for safe, high-power operation.

    All BASSBOSS loudspeakers are complete systems. Optimized cabinet design, premium quality drivers, power-matched amplification and comprehensive processing ensure that no matter the demand, they keep their cool, keep their character and keep on working.

    The DV12 is a 2-way active, powered, processed, full-range, direct radiating loudspeaker. The cabinet is shaped to counteract standing wave reflections as well as provide the ideal down-angle orientation for optimum audience coverage.

    The cabinet shape and driver orientation allow for “Invertible Arraying”, providing seamless, high-frequency summing of two boxes. A very large port maximizes low frequency performance, particularly at high output.

    The handles are incorporated in the back of the cabinet and extend past the amplifier to protect it in transit. The cabinets are constructed from 15mm multi-ply Poplar core Baltic Birch plywood, assembled using dado joints, screws and advanced composite adhesives. Stainless steel bolts are used to secure the drivers, amplifier and pole sockets.

    With handles designed for ergonomic and balanced transport, it is very easy to manage. The cabinet is compact, only 24.5″ High, 14″ Wide, 17″ deep. It weighs just 49 pounds and is made of high-quality poplar wood. The DV12 is built and assembled in the USA.

    The cabinet is finished in an extremely rugged, black polyurethane coating. The woofer is protected by a black powdercoated, perforated steel grill.

    The amplifier consists of 2 channels with a total of 3,000W. The amplifier features extremely high dynamic power capacity, with 150 Volts peak output per channel, along with high damping of >10000:1 Efficient, PFC power supply and class D output topology.

    The DV12 provides high output and uniform energy dispersion over a very wide and deep sound field. The cabinets are vertically arrayable in pairs, with the pairs offering coherent high-frequency summing for extended projection (aka throw), a tightened vertical dispersion pattern and no loss of horizontal dispersion or the “comb filtering” associated with conventional side-by-side arraying.

    The DV series is ideal for DJs and sound system providers who need the ability to scale between two smaller systems and one larger system. The seamless coupling feature of the DV12s makes them much more versatile than any other choice on the market because they offer the extremely wide 120-degree horizontal coverage whether using one or two per side AND the choice of tighter, the same, or expanded vertical coverage when using two per side. When you expand to own more than one pair of DV12s, you can use them in multiple rooms, on separate gigs, or seamlessly coupled to serve much larger rooms.

    The vented cabinet features a 12″ woofer with a 1.4″ throat compression driver on a 120 degree by 20 degree isophasic wave guide. Ultra-wide horizontal coverage of 120 degrees helps to provide consistent, intelligible coverage to audience areas that are to the far left and right, outside the coverage of ordinary portable loudspeakers.

    This extremely wide coverage is made possible through the use of a line-array waveguide. Along with the vertical alignment of the drivers, this helps to constrain vertical coverage to a nominal 20 degrees. The tight vertical pattern provides more consistent coverage over greater distances and minimizes ceiling and floor reflections, enhancing intelligibility.

    The woofer cones are waterproofed. BASSBOSS cabinets are safe to use outdoors where they may encounter rain, in nightclubs where drinks may be spilled on them, or in dusty environments that may leave the drivers needing a thorough cleaning.

    The cones are waterproofed to protect them from possible, accidental exposure to moisture such as rain or spilled beverages. Waterproofed woofer cones also permit the cleaning of drivers that have been soiled in a dirty or dusty environment with the use of a damp cloth. Keep the amplifiers dry and party on!

    Waterproofed cones in all products. Optional weatherized and weather resistant loudspeakers have the same acoustical performance as our standard options. If your system is likely to be exposed to rain, ask about IP rated amplification options. If you have need of a system for outdoor installation, ask about Weatherized products.

    BASSBOSS speakers can be connected directly to your mixer with nothing but signal cable in between. The built-in processing is comprehensive and includes all necessary high-pass and low-pass filters along with equalization and phase alignment processing to ensure coherent response when deployed with BASSBOSS subwoofers.

    There is no need for any additional EQ in the signal path for the speaker to provide a broad, flat frequency response. Sophisticated DSP programming ensures the speakers deliver consistent sound quality no matter the input level.

    Plug-and play with peace of mind. Multiple, sophisticated protection systems make the loudspeaker virtually indestructible. You can turn on and turn up, all night, without fear of over-driving to the point of damage.

    The processing features presets allow it to run in several configurations. The first is full range mode, with response down to 45Hz (-3dB) The other presets allow the DV12 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 — as follows:

    Preset Functions:

    Preset 1:Stand-alone Full-Range Operation. 40Hz high-pass filter. Recommended for use when no sub is available. Peak output is restricted to prevent low frequencies damaging the loudspeaker.

    Preset 2: Intermediate Stand-Alone setting, 60Hz high-pass. Recommended for use with a single sub or when subwoofers are separated from DV12s, such as when subs are center-placed.

    Preset 3: Intermediate High-Output setting. 80Hz high-pass. Recommended for use when single subwoofers are co-located with the DV12s, such as if the DV12s are on a speaker pole above a subwoofer or on a tripod adjacent to a subwoofer.

    Preset 4: Maximum SPL Setting, 100Hz high-pass. Recommended for use when outdoors, in larger venues and/or when multiple or larger subwoofers are co-located with the DV12s.

    Presets 2, 3 and 4 allow the DV12s to be combined with various subwoofer configurations and allow the sound to be tailored to different environments. It is recommended to listen to the appropriate presets in each new setting and choose the one that works best in that environment.

    DV12 Arrayed Pairs: The DV12s can be arrayed in pairs, with the second cabinet inverted above the first. Any preset can be chosen provided both cabinets are set to the same preset and the gains are matched. Optional hardware is required to attach the two boxes together. The hardware allows for adjustment of the total vertical coverage of the array. The DV12 is also equipped with a power pass-through facility that allows two boxes to be connected on a single power source. An optional PowerCON jumper cable is available for this purpose. Using the signal and power pass-through connectors allows the minimum number of cables to be run to the array.

    BASSBOSS technical specs are based upon measurements of continuous performance capabilities in normal usage. Other manufacturers may specify output based on calculations rather than measurements; measurements outside the operating bandwidth; or on ‘Burst’ or ‘Peak’ readings.

    BASSBOSS specifications are conservative compared to most manufacturers. They reflect what the products will achieve, consistently, in the real world. Since the real world is where you’ll be using your gear.
