Community VERIS2 1296
12" 500W 8Ohm 2-Way Speakers in Black

OUR PART #  VERIS2-1296-BLACK


The V2-1296 is a two-way, full-range loudspeaker system suitable for use in a wide spectrum of fixed installations. Compact and extremely powerful, the V2-1296 handles applications ranging from jazz clubs and AV presentations, to rock and roll performances. Its trapezoidal design allows it to be clustered with like units, forming powerful arrays. The 90º x 60º pattern makes the V2-1296 ideal for applications requiring a wide coverage angle, such as in rooms that are wider than they are deep. The enclosure may be suspended from its M10
threaded rigging points using a variety of optional hardware from Community, or it may be installed using a third-party mounting device.

The V2-1296 provides extended high frequency response, low distortion output, a tight, punchy bass response, and precise pattern control. Featuring carefully designed crossovers that provide flat acoustic power response through the critical mid-range region, and Community’s
exclusive DYNA-TECH™ driver protection circuitry, the V2-1296 is a versatile performer for use in music and speech applications that require high quality, high power sound reinforcement at an affordable price.

Community VERIS2 1296 Features:

  • Discreet and aesthetic trapezoidal enclosure
  • Optimized voicing for full-range reproduction
  • DYNA-TECH™ driver protection circuitry
  • Ferrofluid-treated HF driver for improved heat dissipation
  • Carbon Ring Cone Technology provides 30% more piston area with increased excursion capability in LF driver
  • Terminal strip and NL4-compatible connectors
  • Multiple bracket options offer affordable arraying solutions
  • Included in Community’s Forecaster HD ceiling distributed system software
  • Available in standard black or white finishes
