B&C 12PE32 12" Midbass Speaker
B&C 12PE32 12" Midbass Speaker is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great woofer and a great company to buy it fromI was asked to write a review fro my latest "purchase" from PARTS EXPRESS. AS it turns out these would have been the fourth and fifth of these I have bought. I thought I had had destroyed my existing ones and these were to be replacements. As luck would have it I discovered that it was an amplifier problem and I did not need them after all. PE was as nice as one could be about it.I got these upon the recommendation of John Inlow/INLOW SOUND. One of the best recommendations I have ever been given. These things are beautifully made and sound incredible in the horn Inlow designed for them. Two fine companies, B&C and PARTS EXPRESS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sensitive and lightweight superpowerThis driver is more specific per application than your average 12". Aesthetically, mine were super- the surround material and cone composition shows a high level of quality control during the construction process. These are essentially low tone midranges and don't deserve bass duties below 100. Not to mention the idea of throwing mud on the dress of a princess. They are loud, accurate, articulate- consider the size of the magnet and the mass of the dippeled cone#is that a word?# These are lightweight prizefighters for the individual who has a professional level idea on what he\she wants in a large non bass driver. Quick reacting, non-fatiguing- not quite mellow but never harsh. Simply awesome- mine are tri amped with corner horn bass cabs and housed in a reflex design CV cab from 79 with the matching b and c tweeters- thank you and enjoy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speaker upgrade for clarityLike the other reviewers, I find this woofer very clear for speech intelligibility. The upper range that's covered by the woofer, 500 Hz to 1.8 kHz, is where the money is. No muddiness, no scooped-EQ sound, just plain clear. The low end is not bad either, perfectly usable is a ported enclosure. The 5 dB/octave reduction below 400 Hz makes room for a reasonably-sized enclosure resonance and the port contribution, resulting in a very linear frequency response for the whole package. A perfect complement to a high-efficiency HF driver in a 2-way high power top speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just a one trick ponyI used this speaker as an upgrade for a customer of mine who was searching for a replacement for his guitar rig. He was wanting a single driver cabinet that would have enough power to gig with, but could handle the power of the Carvin DCM1000 he uses. I compared the specs of his previous speaker, which got cooked from his high power amp, and this had a very similar frequency response with higher power rating and greater sensitivity. After replacing drivers, it was broken in with gradual volume increases for a period of 72 hours, then it was time to test it out with a guitar.The tone of this speaker is absolutely beautiful!! It has very rich harmonics, and integrates well with tube, solid state, and digital guitar amplifiers. Bass is powerful without being muddy, mids are chunky when you dig in hard with a pick and smooth when you strum softly, and it has plenty of sparkling high end to serve very well as a guitar speaker. The tone is unique, but nothing is left wanting. The higher sensitivity also allows it to get the same volume at lower power levels than the speaker it replaced.Try this speaker for guitar, it is AWESOME!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect mid bass horn driver!Hi, I'm John Inlow, owner of Inlow Sound. I build horns as a hobby and as a side job. I've fabricated enough horns to know when I have a winner. Read on, this driver is incredible!I purchased 4 of these cuties for the express purpose of driving my mid bass horns, and if successful, for use in my brother's Christian rock band, PureFusion. I used Hornresp to design a 100hz horn based on the T/S specs of this driver. I could hardly believe the results from the model; this horn/driver combo would be small, powerful and posses incredible impulse response.Last Friday, I fabricated a biconical horn and loaded the driver. It's a crying shame to have to bury the physical beauty of this driver behind plywood walls. This thing is sweet on the senses. It has a rugged cast frame, has excellent push connectors, built like a tank, and looks like a Ferrari. I took my time installing this gem, savoring every turn on the screw.Finally, I finished the job, loaded it up and headed home were it would find a new home in my media room. I'll tell you, my hands were trembling as I hit the 'on' switches to my sound system (I'm tri-amped). Right away, I noticed that this little rig was pounding my right channel mid bass horn (80hz cutoff, loaded with an 18" JBL 2240). Because of the B&C 12PE32 driver's efficiency, I had to turn the gain down 4db. That's a whopping figure, as it means the B&C has more than twice the efficiency of the JBL. Mind you, this is a 12" driver stacked up against an 18" monster.The joy doesn't stop there, no, this driver/horn combo also hit's harder, is crisper, more detailed, much smoother, and finally costs far less than the JBL 2240 did when it was new. Drums are life like, rim shots are so accurate, you can't help but smile. Vocals have fullness without resonance or rumble. Sweet!You absolutely can't go wrong with this product. I pray to god, that B&C continues this product line for years to come.If you want the free schematics to this horn, then check out my web site: www.inlowsound.comGo to the 100hz horn page and scroll down to the bottom. They're yours, free, for the asking.Finally, I think Parts Express deserves credit for carrying an excellent product line, such as B&C. Their service is excellent, the shipping is rapid, and the prices are competitive. You can't do better than that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!!!This driver is a real gem! I can't get over how natural it sounds, and the fact that it is so quick, so snappy, and so clean in the critical mid-bass region! I had almost given up on finding a driver that would play strongly, with transparent sound as well. It seemed that I could get one or the other, but never both concurrently. This B&C driver has been a wonderful find, and I could not recommend it strongly enough; super-clean, refined mid-bass and midrange sound, excellent extension into the mids, and, surprise, surprise, bass response that rivals some dedicated low-freq units I've heard! Get it - you won't regret it!
