The P Audio C12-500B is a high performance wide bandwidth transducer. The C12-500B is an upgraded design that features many of P Audio's new technologies and performance upgrades. The 12 inch (305mm) diameter piston will produce extremely high sound pressure levels in the mid band and upper mid frequencies and is ideal for high level response in both live sound and recorded music venues. The transducer uses high energy ferrite magnetics to achieve a very high acoustic output to weight ratio. The C12-500B has been optimized for use in two way or three way sound reinforcement systems. The transducer is also ideal as a low frequency driver for ultra high performance system designs and has an operating bandwidth of 50Hz to 3000Hz.

The C12-500B features a very large 3.25 inch (82.5mm) diameter voice coil that provides an AES rated 500 watts of continuous power handling and a full 2000 watts of peak rated power handling when sufficient amplifier headroom is available. The C12-500B utilizes P Audio's Auto Balanced Cooling (ABC) technology to not only improve transducer power handling and reliability but to also increase power compression performance by carefully balancing and directing airflow to critical areas.

The voice coil design is a bobbin wound geometry with P Audio's inside/ outside precision wire technology to improve conversion efficiency and provide a large cross-sectional area for superior cooling.

The transducer chassis is a die cast aluminum design that insures a very high degree of structural integrity.
