Product Details

PRV Audio 12W700 12" High Power PA Woofer 8 Ohm

PRV Audio's 12W700 12" professional audio woofer features a class leading 3" voice coil and a high sensitivity rating of 98 dB. Use it as a woofer in two-way speakers, a midrange or midbass in large format three-way speakers... the extended frequency response even allows this driver to be used as a guitar or bass guitar speaker, in open back or sealed cabinets!

What sets this speaker apart from other budget 12" woofers is the use of a 3" diameter voice coil and the generous 5.5 mm of Xmax. A stamped steel frame is used to handle abuse while keeping the speaker light. A paper cone combined with a woven cloth surround enables decent sensitivity and creates a natural sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from another awesome product from PRV!what more can I say about PRV products! beats any speaker in its price range & alittle above....put these into a custom built 5cu ft. birch cab tuned to about 50hz & they shine as expected... parts express had them at my door 19hrs of ordering them.... that's why thr the best!!!! these sound much more punchy then the Dayton pro 12s. you need to look these up on the PRV site to get the real specs, as the ones here haven't been updated... so please do that parts express...lol. but they did take some breaking in to get the sound rt... but within a few hrs they shined...not as low or loud as a Dayton or eminence delta, but negligible to me...but I have 10 more PRV speakers aside of these & they haven't let me down yet & I beat the heck outta them. so compaired to the prices of an eminence or peavey, these smoke them for the $$$. PRV is becoming a pro audio monster...ofcoarse there inception is of all ex-JBL engineers....no wonder!!!!! awesome speakers, just try them, you wont be disappointed ......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacements for Behringer B212XL'sI have installed these PRV 12W700 drivers into a pair of Behringer B212XL monitors and the result was simply stunning. All of a sudden I have much better sounding stage monitors and at a price that's hard to beat. I now have much better low frequency response and a much higher power handling capability. A very good match for the factory installed cross-overs and titanium compression drivers. I will be replacing the woofers in the other pair of these same speakers I have ASAP and Parts Express will be the ONLY people I'll be buying them from.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value 12"I have used this driver since PE started carrying them in 9/2012. I have used them in 1x12, 2x12 bass guitar cabinets and 1x12 PA cabinets and in every case they have either met or exceeded my expectations. They have a very deep low end and a nice growl for bass guitar cabinets. Over all, I am very pleased with PRV products as a whole, #I have also used the 15W700, 10W600 the closed back mid and HF drivers. And will continue to offer them in my products.
