Experience revolutionary Fender® sound in an easily portable package that’s ideal for DJs, schools, houses of worship, solo performers, businesses or small-to-medium sized venues with the Fortis F-12BT 12” active two-way powered speaker. Combining the power of streaming technology and versatile design with user-friendly features, the F-12BT is 1,300W of audio power packed into a lightweight package.
With a wide variety of I/O connections, the three-channel F-12BT can handle almost any source you send to it—even offering high-quality stereo Bluetooth audio for wirelessly streaming music from any Bluetooth source. Channel One is dedicated to line-level signals while Channel Two accepts line- and mic-level signals. Channels One and Two are fed by discrete balanced XLR-1/4” TRS combo connectors while Channel Three offers stereo Bluetooth and 3.5mm auxiliary inputs. Powered by dual onboard Class ‘D’ amplifiers, the 1.75” titanium horn-loaded driver and 12" woofer work in tandem to create crystal-clear room-filling sound with a 40°x90° dispersion pattern. The easy-to-use rear panel controls include a three-position EQ switch and four-position LF switch to tailor the response of the speaker to the room, along with per-channel volume and signal controls. Two rear-panel XLR connectors offer switchable mono/stereo balanced loop-through and extension outputs, allowing for easy system expansion.
The highly robust and reliable enclosure is constructed from 9-ply voidless plywood with a hard-wearing paint and powder-coated perforated steel grill to shrug off the abuse off the road. M10 rigging points and a 35mm pole socket with vertical and 7.5° downward angles make it easy to optimally position the speaker while the trapezoidal form factor allow you to use it as a floor monitor with two angles to ensure proper aiming. Three flush-mounted ergonomic cup handles grace the exterior for easy handling of the lightweight enclosure. The F-12BT is a bold new entry from Fender, offering amazing performance and value for almost any small-to-mid-sized application.
