The Adamson E12 is a 3 way line array enclosure, incorporating proprietary transducer and waveguide technology which reduces weight and minimizes its footprint. The heart of the E12 is the E-Capsule, which is precisely engineered and constructed of lightweight aluminum. The patent pending skeletal structure provides an accurate and rigid frame for mounting the modular aircraft grade steel Autolock™ rigging system, while simultaneously housing ultra-efficient mid-high components coaxially mounted on Adamson’s modified E12 Co-Linear Drive Module. 

A vector corrected low-excursion 7” Neodymium midrange transducer paired with a next generation 4” HF compression driver energize the drive module and provide seamless mid-high energy with minimized distortion at very high SPL levels. The critically optimized waveguide, based on a prolate-spheroidal geometry ensures precise pattern control and minimum THD, producing a nominal (-6 dB) dispersion pattern of 110° x 8° (H x V). The E-Capsule is flanked with two separate, vented birch ply enclosures, each containing Adamson’s proprietary Neodymium 12” woofer, capitalizing on the advantages of Adamson’s Advanced Cone Architecture and optimized heat dissipation management of the 4” voice coil.

E12 E12 Dolly (938-0015) The precision crafted E12 dolly accommodates 4 stacked E12 cabinets. Incorporating the rear latch of the Autolock™ rigging system, the E12 dolly is a secure and simple way to store and transport your E12 cabinets. The dolly has been designed to fit 4-wide in a standard truck.
E12 Sub-Compact Underhang Adapter Kit (931-0010) Suspends CS10/CS10n/S10/S10n enclosures with the use of the Sub-Compact Support Frame (part no. 930-0020) from E-Series 3-way line source enclosures
E12 E-Frame with Extender Beam (930-0004) Rigging frame for E15 and E12 Cabinets
E12 Dolly Stacking Legs (938-0014) The Dolly Stacking Legs allow for your E-Series or S-Series system to be ground stacked without leaving the Dolly. As the Dolly naturally sits in a downward angle, the stacking legs allow you to elevate your stack to an angle which perfectly suits your particular application.
