You can use your CP speaker as a single-box PA system via its built-in 3-channel mixer, or integrate it with a larger system with ease.

Extensive DSP enhances your system's performance

The CP12 is loaded with powerful DSP to enhance your system's performance. DMT (Directivity Matched Transition) provides matched low- and high-frequency response across your audience's entire listening area, eliminating dead and hot zones. Intrinsic Correction ensures that your speaker performs consistently across the entire sound field. It achieves this by mapping spatially averaged measurements to IIR and FIR filters that actively adjust time, frequency, and amplitude response.
