  • High power handling; 430W continuous (AES)
  • 80° conical dispersion
  • Low impedance for efficient amplifier loading
  • Available in 2 different versions CCS12, CCS12S
  • Ideal for immersive ceiling surround or acoustical enhancement systems

Product description

The CCS12 is a passive-filtered 2-way full range loudspeaker, designed for multi-channel acoustical enhancement and (immersive) surround applications.
The CCS12 features a 12” high quality, bass-reflex-loaded woofer with a 3” voice-coil, placed in an optimally-tuned cabinet for extended low-frequency response.
The high-frequencies are taken care of by a 2”-exit compression-driver coaxially mounted on the woofer.

A high-quality passive 2-way crossover network matches the two components, allowing 430W of continuous (AES) power input, making the CCS12 deliver exceptional performance from a relative compact sized system.
The 4 ohms system impedance makes for a very efficient amplifier loading, enabling the use of smaller rated amplifier output stages for maximum system drive in individually-amplified immersive surround applications.

The coaxial speaker arrangement creates a true point-source catering for a very smooth LF/HF blending in all directions, both on-axis as well as off-axis. This is an ideal solution in ceiling-mounted surround applications.

The 10-degree slanted baffle design (CCS12) provides for a low profile in wall mounted applications.
The enclosure design has the exact same face-print as the CRS12, CRS12GT60 and CRS12GT90 surrounds, while the overall design matches the other Alcons surrounds as well. Even in an assembled surround configuration of different systems, there’s a consistent, unobtrusive appearance.

The CCS12 is also available with a straight, non-slanted ultra-shallow cabinet for ceiling-mounted applications (or when pre-tilt is not required) as CCS12S.

Multiple options are provided for ceiling and wall mounting; The CCS12 can be wall-mounted with the BRKCS12 tilt U-bracket or wall- and ceiling mounted with most commonly-applied brackets.

For full system performance, CCS12 is to be used in combination with an ALC amplified controller. Driven by the ALC, the CCS12 delivers maximum sound quality and output power with inaudible (power and excursion) protection .

The CCS12 is prepared for a universal bracket, with pattern: 4x M8 – 2”x 4.25” (51x108mm).
