Power, control and “invincibility” are all features which the new Typhon active loudspeakers have been designed around. Two new models are available.  Typhon-AX12 - a 12” 2-way 720w Continuous active loudspeaker and an aptX Bluetooth enabled brother - the Typhon-AX12-BT.  The all new internal amplifiers deliver over 140% more power than Titan-AX12.

The Typhon-AX12-BT features aptX Bluetooth input connectivity and stereo linking which makes setup with mobile devices simple and cable free. Simply pair your Bluetooth audio source (such as a smart phone or laptop) with a Typhon-AX12-BT and thats it! High quality aptX streaming makes connection easy. Typhon-AX12-BT however also features a STEREO LINK mode. This allows two Typhon-AX12-BT's to communicate with each other to create a stereo pair.



New internal DSP algorithms generate a sound stage which surpasses the dimensions of the cabinet.

FLAT : The Flat mode is ‘the truth’. This mode is ideal for when connecting guitar effects processors directly to a Typhon-AX12. Full Range, Flat Response. Simply YOUR sound.

MONITOR ; This mode rolls of low frequencies which are not needed when Typhon-AX12 is on the floor. High frequencies are also attenuated to reduce risk of feedback.

BASS ; By pushing the bass frequencies, this mode is ideal when Typhon-AX12 is being used at lower volumes. It delivers a more powerful sound without having to turn the volume up.

PUNCH ; A ‘crisp’ and ‘tight’ DSP mode which gives the impression of power and tightness. Use this when you really need to cut through.

The two separate Class D power amps (600w continuous for the LF and 120w continuous for the HF) deliver huge output power while keeping the overall weight to minimum. Bi-amplification means that each amplifier is perfectly matched to the driver it is connected to. This leads to more defined sound quality with crisper highs and more impressive lows.

The efficiency of the amplifier stages means that Typhon uses convection cooling and has no need for an internal fan. This results in a more reliable product with quieter operation.
