1800 W Per Channel Class-H Power Amplifier

Building on a legacy of power and performance, the Q1212 amps take Electro-Voice’s unique amplifier philosophy to a new level of efficiency and value. The Q1212 achieves superb audio performance because it's designed for superior dynamic headroom and transient response, resulting in 30% greater output capability for short-duration signals. High-power Q Series models use sophisticated Class-H topology that dramatically reduces heat and cuts energy consumption by up to 50%, yielding racks that are easier to power and easier to cool.

Smaller Q series models are based on the proven Class-AB designs of EV’s reference-standard P series. All models incorporate dynamic limiting to prevent dangerous output clipping, as well as extensive protections against thermal damage and electrical malfunction. Combining Class-H innovation with the sonic excellence and robustness of its Precision series heritage, the compact, affordable Q series is the ideal amplifier line for all sizes of clubs, concerts, performance centers, and sports venues.

Q1212 features include:

  • Super-efficient power with outstanding performance
  • Innovative Class-H design
  • 1800 W per channel (2 Ω)
