Blackline3 FX12

Compact Coaxial Full-Range System

Blackline3 FX12 Loudspeaker
Where to Buy or Rent

The FX12 is a compact, coaxial two-way system designed for premium entertainment applications. Featuring a 12” (300mm) LF drive unit and 1” (25mm) exit compression driver, it combines Differential Dispersion technology with the ‘point-source’ benefits of coaxial designs to produce perfect sound over distances between 2 metres and 5 metres from the loudspeaker.


  • Compact, coaxial passive two-way system
  • Coaxial Differential Dispersion™ technology
  • Elegant composite enclosure
  • User-rotatable coaxial drive unit
  • Vertical and horizontal mounting options
  • Screw-free perforated steel grille


  • Small-medium live music clubs
  • Music bars
  • Nightclubs
  • Premium KTV
  • Infills in larger installations

Coaxial Differential Dispersion™ technology delivers more consistent audience coverage than systems with conventional X° x Y° horns - projecting relatively more output to the rear of the audience to distribute sound evenly front-to-to-back, while having wide horizontal coverage close-up. In addition, the FX12 overcomes the high frequency ‘beaming’ associated with conventional coaxial devices.

The visually-distinctive composite enclosure can be used in either horizontal (landscape) or vertical (portrait) orientation, with rotation of the coaxial driver easily accomplished by removing the screw-free, protective grille. The curved shape of the FX12 allows it to be bracket-mounted close to a wall and integral M8 inserts are provided for eyebolt suspension.

A full-range passive system, the FX12 may be used without a controller. However, the EQ and limiter functions of a controller such as the Martin Audio DX0.5 will maximise its capabilities. When used with a B18 or B218 subwoofer, crossover and EQ functions can be performed by the DX0.5 system controller.
