What really sold me on the system – how well the sound travels. From the low end to the high end, everything sounds clear. It was more than I originally planned to spend on an upgrade, but I was so excited about the demo that I knew it was worth it.

They deserve every penny!! I’ve wanted the speakers to be loud but at the same time provide a flat and clean frequency response without distortion because most of the PA speakers in the market, they cannot maintain the flat frequency response, they might either have a muddy, harsh, etc. sound. With my speakers, I got the same quality as my near field studio speakers, and plus I can crack the volume higher and be able to use it on my small parties. Definitely recommend it!

When it comes to high end professional audio products, it is obvious how much care and thought was put into each cabinet – the high performance drivers, the construction of the cabinet, the super powerful amps, and the carefully tuned DSP software.

Petite + Punchy

Half the size, twice the OOMPH of "common" monitors. Tired of big, bulky, ugly stage monitors? Us too.

Live Wire

Not just a stage monitor. Use it on subwoofers or tables; pole-mounted; as a stage side-fill or front-fill; mounted on walls or ceilings. This baby fits into every party, effortlessly.

Product = Primo

Why the CCM12-MK3?

What are all the jobs you need your loudspeaker to do? The longer your list, the more likely the CCM12-MK3 will be the best choice for you…

The CCM12-MK3 is the BASSBOSS version of a monitor wedge, but like most things BASSBOSS, it delivers a lot more than meets the eye. 

As a floor wedge, it offers two upward angles with processor settings tailored to each angle. The most upward angle is intended for standing performers. The second angle is intended for seated performers, or it can also be used to cover groups of standing performers at a slightly greater distance. Processing specific to each position accounts for the floor boundary loading and the reflections from the floor, providing smooth frequency response for the performers and maximum gain before feedback for the engineers.

The CCM12-MK3 has a third, least inclined angle that allows it to be used on a table, and there are presets that account for the boundaries at that angle as well. This angle is also best suited when the CCM12-MK3 is placed on a subwoofer and used as a drum monitor. 

Other monitor applications are served via a 35mm pole socket that allows the CCM12-MK3 to be placed on a tripod or speaker pole above a subwoofer for DJ monitors or side-fills, and there are presets specific to that positioning as well. 

The straight-ahead position of course allows the CCM-MK3 to be used for small mains, duplicating the performance of the DiaMon in that regard, with yet another application being front-fills for larger systems. 

The CCM12-MK3 offers benefits even beyond the many it provides as a portable monitor wedge. The cabinet includes twelve fly-points and, thanks to the wedge angles, these points allow it to be flown very unobtrusively, tightly against low ceilings and walls. And when the cabinet is mounted against a wall or ceiling, the boundary-compensating processing serves to provide smooth frequency response that’s unequaled by any other surface-mounted loudspeaker.

The CCM12-MK3 enclosure is sealed, minimizing phase shift at the low end of its response and allowing for a more controlled, less boomy sound, which can be very advantageous on stage. The 12” driver is a co-axial, with the high-frequencies exiting through the pole piece at the center of the woofer. This serves to minimize the size of the cabinet while also providing exceptionally consistent response over the listening area. 

In short, the CCM12-MK3 is a 12” bi-amped wedge with 3” voice coils on both the low frequency and high frequency drivers. The high frequency driver is loaded onto a 1.4” throat horn with an 80-degree conical pattern. The low-frequency driver is mounted into a sealed enclosure along with an amplifier and a sophisticated DSP. Perhaps the best thing about the CCM12 is that it’s easier to use than it is to describe. Pick your position, load the right preset, play!

Philosophy = Principled

Straight Specs

At BASSBOSS we believe in power, precision, and practicality. While others in the industry may rely on theoretical calculations or skewed metrics, we provide real-world performance measurements. Performance claims that can't be met are worse than irrelevant, they are deceptive.

If you compare our specs to many in the loudspeaker industry, our specifications might seem rather unimpressive. That's certainly not because the products are underperforming, it's because we choose to tell you the truth instead of marketing hype. We bring you the reality of what our products can actually deliver in real-world conditions. We believe that should matter most to anyone who actually lives in the real world.

Many manipulate data in order to paint an exaggeratedly rosy picture of their products. Things like calculating peak output instead of measuring it, or quoting peak output figures based on output at frequencies outside the operational range of the loudspeaker, or quoting output that's achieved without the necessary processing having been applied. These methods churn out inflated specifications that don't match up to any actual, achievable levels. At BASSBOSS, we like to keep it real. We provide our “Maximum Measured Output" ratings, reporting the levels that we have actually measured our products reaching, and that's with all the filters and limiters in place, exactly the way you receive them. In our book, authenticity always wins.

Champion Components

Every single item in the BASSBOSS lineup echoes our unwavering dedication to superior quality. From the awe-inspiring capacity of our largest festival rigs to the compact portability of our smaller systems, each piece is crafted to meet the same standards, to be exceptional on its own merits. This guarantees that every beat you feel and every song you hear is delivered with the clarity, power and steadfast reliability that are the hallmarks of the BASSBOSS experience.

As part of our commitment to exceptional quality, BASSBOSS goes the extra mile to ensure the components we use are the very best in every application. The best, in this context, doesn't always mean the most exotic, the most expensive, or having the most impressive specifications. It means the best for that particular purpose. Factors like frequency response and efficiency have to be backed up with long-term consistency of performance, long-term reliability, and fitness for purpose. We source top-tier components, from the best-reputed suppliers in the industry, just like every other high-end loudspeaker manufacturer.

If there is a difference between BASSBOSS and the other buyers of these same premium components, it's in the expectations we have for our systems. We didn't grow up on rock-n-roll, we grew up in the age of electronic instruments, digital recordings and deep bass. The demand for more and more SPL at lower and lower frequencies isn't something we're trying to catch up with, it's something we've been leading for years. Those bigger competitors eventually try to build products to do what we do when the demand gets big enough for them to do it. Meanwhile, for years we've been building the products that created that demand. By the time you're able to buy anything similar from them, we're already making the next insanely powerful product they'll eventually try to compete with. They do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Deep Design

BASSBOSS is an investment into your creative identity. When you join the BASSBOSS Family you don't just get world-class audio equipment, you get something even more valuable: The BASSBOSS experience. Our products are designed for you to be able to make the most of them from the moment you take them out of the box.

Each element is purposefully crafted. Everything has a reason and a purpose, and that purpose is to make getting consistently great results easy and trouble-free. Whether you're a sound enthusiast or an audio professional, BASSBOSS lets you take control, effortlessly. To begin with, it's as simple as plug-and-play. No complicated setups, no fiddling around with complex controls. Connect directly to your mixer with just a signal cable, switch on, and the BASSBOSS experience means you're ready to deliver powerful soundscapes that move your audience.

Your sound, your way. Our Digital Signal Processing is comprehensive yet accessible. With a variety of inter-compatible presets and the ability to seamlessly switch between them, you can adjust and fine-tune your sound with just the touch of a button, or, if you prefer, the click of a mouse. Everything you need, nothing you don't. The integrated processing allows you to make changes so you can achieve the sound balance you want. And if you're wondering, no, it doesn't allow you to make changes that shouldn't be made, of the type that could cause damage or a deterioration of quality. One more benefit of the experience.

Craftsmanship = Consummate

Prodigious Power

The CCM12-MK3 features 1200W of amplification. With 900W of its power available for the woofer and 300W available to the coaxial tweeter, power is plentiful. An auto-sensing, globally compatible power supply that can run on input voltages anywhere between 90 and 250 Volts ensure it can work wherever you take it. Full output power is available on anything over 110V. The amplifier is passively cooled via its external heat-sink and by woofer-generated air-flow through the port. When necessary, a blower-fan will engage to provide additional forced-air cooling capacity in more extreme conditions.

Every BASSBOSS product comes equipped with amplification, and in every case, a generous supply of power is provided. Headroom is the term used to describe power that's still available when the sound is at the level required, and the BASSBOSS amps provide ample headroom. While it's necessary to have limiters in the DSP to prevent driver overload, those limiters aren't there to prevent amplifier clipping. There is enough power in every product to reach their maximum SPL without the risk of clipping the amplifier.

In other words, the amplifier is never the bottleneck in delivering powerful low frequencies, dynamic impact and clear sound. This abundant power capacity not only keeps overheating at bay but also eliminates the potential for damage caused by clipping an underpowered amp. With BASSBOSS, you've got the power to keep your sound pumping.

Thumping Transducers

Amplifier power is converted into the much more desirable acoustical power by a neodymium motor, 12-inch woofer with a 3-inch (76mm) voice coil and a coaxial center woofer mounted compression driver with a 3-inch (76mm) voice coil mounted to a 1.4-inch (35.5mm) throat 80 x 80-degree conical coverage pattern that is consistent off-axis. Neodymium magnets are lighter, and their higher intensity provides higher efficiency, so the result is a lighter and louder cabinet than those with ferrite drivers.

The protection systems involve several techniques running simultaneously to effectively prevent thermal overload of the voice coils and limit excessive excursion. Reducing thermal saturation not only prevents burned voice coils, it also minimizes long-term thermal compression. Due to the sophistication of these multiple, independent yet simultaneous processes, the drivers can be protected while the actions of the limiters have virtually no noticeable effect on the transient response of the loudspeaker. Peak output can be achieved consistently, repeatedly and safely.

We understand that real-life situations can sometimes be messy. That's why we use waterproof cones to withstand accidental exposure to moisture – whether it's an unexpected rain shower or a spilled drink.

Choice Cabinets

The CCM12-MK3 is a 2-way, single 12-inch self-powered, sealed, direct-radiating full-range that can be carried in one hand with one of the 4 integrated handles built into the cabinet itself. The Birch plywood enclosure is strong and solid but very easily portable. The 12-inch woofer features a large voice coil and a rubber surround for high power handling and smooth response. The amplifier offers abundant headroom and the proprietary BASSBOSS processing ensures exceptional sound quality and reliability.

BASSBOSS cabinets are designed to endure for a very long time. Built from robust Birch plywood, our construction process involves precise dado joints, cleverly integrated bracing, and cutting-edge adhesives to create sturdy, rigid cabinets that stand the test of time. With a little care in handling, and especially with the use of covers, BASSBOSS cabs can look new years down the line, even after being in many demanding environments and less than ideal locations.

The cabinets are protected by a rugged black polyurea coating that's specially formulated to bond to wood. Amplifiers are recessed into the side of the cabinets, safeguarding them from impact damage. Powder-coated, perforated steel grilles protect the woofers. Every effort is made to create a physical enclosure that will stand up to whatever you throw at it, giving you years and years of solid service.

MK3 = Monumental

Processing Perfection

Proprietary DSP design techniques are at the core of the BASSBOSS line. Every BASSBOSS product features dedicated and integrated signal processing. Proprietary measurement and processing systems allow BASSBOSS products to deliver superior performance and value compared to others of similar size, price or coverage. The innovative, sophisticated protection in the DSP allows the drivers to run louder and longer and remain reliable. The nature of the processing, along with the proprietary limiters, allows the speakers to maintain their character and sound quality to a level higher than you might believe possible.

The protection systems involve several techniques running simultaneously to effectively prevent thermal overload of the voice coils and limit excessive excursion. Due to the sophistication of these multiple, independent yet simultaneous processes, the drivers can be protected while the actions of the limiters have virtually no noticeable effect on the transient response of the loudspeaker. Reducing thermal saturation not only prevents burned voice coils, it also minimizes long-term thermal compression. Peak output can be achieved consistently, repeatedly and safely.

Insane Improvements

The MK3 series, available now, brings an upgraded DSP with an immense boost in processing power. Operating at a sampling rate of 96kHz, it delivers double the resolution of its predecessors, resulting in increased fidelity and a lower noise floor.

The MK3 series doesn't stop there. It provides you with eight meticulously tailored preset alignments, all readily available at the click of a button. Further improving your user experience, the system now enables immediate preset switching with zero signal dropouts, ensuring smooth transitions even if you choose to make preset changes during performances.

This is where excellence meets simplicity: our systems can be connected directly to your mixer, requiring nothing more than a signal cable for you to have all the control you need to achieve great sound. The eight directly accessible presets are compatible with all the presets in all MK3 Boxes and are also compatible with previous generation tops and subs.

For those who need more control, there is more available.

Functionality Fortified

The new DSP features an Ethernet interface. Connecting via the ControlBASS software offers remote control and monitoring from a computer, and allows access to essentially unlimited presets through updates and new releases. With a computer connected, the MK3 DSP features access to a storage capacity of up to 100 on-board presets.

Within the software, multiple cabinets can be grouped together, allowing them to respond to commands simultaneously. This permits the levels of multiple loudspeakers to be adjusted together, and yet independently from the levels of other groups of loudspeakers. In addition to individual and grouped level controls, presets can be loaded and signal levels and temperatures can be monitored.

The MK3 series further expands its functionality with an integrated 2-port network switch, enabling cascaded LAN configurations to easily group loudspeakers for centralized control, making the MK3 series the ultimate tool for taking the reins of your sound experience.

Our systems are designed to grow with you. Want to add more BASSBOSS products to your setup? With inter-compatible tops and subs, cascading LAN configurations, network switches and ControlBASS software, expansion is a breeze. System simplicity, scalability, and sonic excellence: The experience becomes yours.
