NEAR High-Output, Long-Throw Loudspeaker is the latest addition to the A-Series family of of loudspeakers. Engineered to the same high standards, the A12 provides deep, rich bass and smooth highs as a complement to other NEAR loudspeakers. The A12 is a high-power speaker that projects well in far-field applications as well as in more intimate settings. A built-in transformer means one speaker will work with 70V or 16-ohm systems. Dual metal-alloy mid/bass drivers and a Mylar high-frequency compression driver combine to minimize distortion and provide precise sound reproduction at any volume level. From gold-plated input connectors to the patented Metal Diaphragm Technology (MDT) used in the two 6-1/2'' drivers, all components of the A12 are designed with the goal of providing outstanding reliability and performance for years down the road - without compromising top-quality sound. Even the woofer frames and exterior housing have been designed to maximize sound quality and durability. The A12 is ideal for both music and voice reproduction, and its powerful, highly directional output and weatherproof design makes it the perfect speaker for sound reinforcement in outdoor venues like theme parks, amphitheaters, and sports fields
