A small sub with a monster footprint. Fly it, hide it, hang it, as an ultra-compact passive sub bass for mobile audio or permanent installation, the HPI12S is a spectacular performer. Light in weight and high in LF output, the HPI12S is ideally suited to small medium sized venues that require authentic sub bass with a very low visual profile.
The custom built 12″ driver in the HPI12S is one of the very few loudspeakers with cone material made from Australian eucalyptus hardwood. This material has strength like a composite material but the warm sound of a cardboard cone; much loved by hi-fi enthusiasts. The benefit with the Quest driver is it can take serious punishment while still sounding like high end studio.
Internal rigging points allow the sub bass to be flown for permanent ceiling installation with four top mounter reinforced inserts and one extra on each side. A 35mm top hat can accommodate a standard speaker pole for mounting a satellite mid-high box. Power handling is high for such a small system with a power amplifier recommendation of 600W nominal.
The birch ply casing looks serious and is built to last the distance in a high performance environment. The angled connector panel is a thoughtful addition to act as a strain relief to the speaker connection and also make it possible to mount the box next to a wall if necessary.
