Product Details

B&C 12HPL76 12" Neodymium Woofer

The B&C Speakers 12HPL76 12" speaker features a cast aluminum basket that is designed to effectively dissipate heat during demanding use at full power, thereby reducing power compression. The driver's powerful neodymium magnet and 3" diameter inside-outside aluminum voice coil provide a good combination of efficiency and power handling. The 12HPL76 is recommended for compact two-way loudspeaker systems in which power is limited to 350 watts RMS or 700 watts continuous program. Also works well as a midrange driver in larger direct radiating or horn-loaded concert PA systems.

B&C 12HPL76 12" Neodymium Woofer
B&C 12HPL76 12" Neodymium Woofer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 12 in woofer I've ever heardI upgraded my speakers from 4 B&C 8 inch drivers to these. I have them in a D'apalito configuration , using a pyramid tw46 horn and a custom x-over which I put together using caps and coil purchaced here. I'm using them in a sat/sub system cutting the lower freq. off at 90 hz. The enclosure is a 2200 ci box with a port tunned to 80hz. I've heard just about every brand out there but these 12's just blow them all away. Clear, dynamic, open and very loud.The thing that amazed me the most is that they sound great at any sound level. They only weigh about 7 pounds a piece. I don't think I will ever be able to go to another concert without saying, man that PA system sounds like. Well you know. PS for the record I've been custom building speakers for 27 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SpeakerThis is a great woofer as all B&C products are however I have to say this is not quite a guitar speaker as a previous reviewer suggests. An important part of the tone 'guitar speakers' add to the sound is cone breakup (the result of a thin paper cone). This speaker will not give you any of that. Otherwise, you could use it for guitar but anyone who would like the resulting sound may not be much of a musician. It's more for music production and not creation. Great speaker for PA cabinets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet, Sexy, Light and LOUD.At these prices, this is one of the best speakers ever made. We use them for replacement / upgrades in stock guitar amps and monitors. That requires no skill or tools other than a screwdriver and some muscle. With some knowledge, skill, woodworking tools and a decent software program, (or a LOT of knowledge and a good calculator) you can design and build some fantastic 3 or 4-way hi-fi speakers with these!Thanks to Parts Express for having the most informative, easy-to-navigate website and great personal service. AAA+++Thanks to B&C for making such fantastic speakers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GUITARISTS!...a Ferrari for the price of a BeetleThanks to Parts Express and the reputable manufacturers they represent for providing customers with crucial specifications! Without those facts, we d be left with only marketing hype and mythology to select speakers. This wonderful speaker is a case in point.Now Would you spend $170,000 for a bare-bones 30-horsepower Volkswagen when you could have a new 350-horsepower Ferrari for three grand less? Compare this to a famous so-called guitar-speaker in the same price range. This has MORE than TEN TIMES the power-handling, (350 watts vs. 30 watts) smoother response, and a lower resonant frequency (50 Hz) that is MUCH more appropriate for guitar-range. Some famous guitar-speakers have a resonant freq around 90 or 100 Hz! Remember; the low string on guitar is around 82 Hz, and if you are a modern drop-D player (or lower) you definitely need a lower resonant frequency with a closed-back cabinet.The 350 watt B&C uses superior materials, design and professional-quality construction. Yet it actually costs LESS than a stamped-basket, feeble 30-watt job. This B&C also does NOT exhibit that annoying harsh hump around 2 to 3 kHz that misinformed musicians believe sounds British. Don t buy that hype! It is easier to play loud with a smoother frequency response. You can please more people (including yourself) and annoy fewer people than with your pointy thirty-watters.This sexy Italian beauty weighs almost HALF of the venerable big-dogs like JBL and EV, yet has similar if not superior performance. Send Red Fang to the dentist to get his bleeding gums fixed. Then send him to the Hearing specialist to see why he is deaf at 2.5Khz. Check the specs for yourself. Make an intelligent informed decision. For three bucks less than a flimsy hump-back honker, you can have this sexy, svelte Italian hottie. It s like paying for a used Volkswagen with broken air-conditioning, but getting a brand new Ferrari.
