Dual 12-Inch Subwoofers

Wherever audiences and operators demand superior performance and ease of use, PN/PNX loudspeakers are the choice for transparent, reference quality performance.

Reference Quality, Unparalleled Versatility

Cutting edge driver technology and unique innovations such as our Complex Conic Horns deliver natural sounding music and intelligible speech. Advanced options like intelligent onboard amplification and RHAON - the Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network - help you build sophisticated sound systems that are easy to use.

All PN and PNX series loudspeakers are handcrafted especially for you in our Foothill Ranch, California facility. Numerous custom options are available.

The PN/PNX212-SUB features dual ultra heavy duty 12-inch woofers that deliver maximum low frequency impact.


Integrated PN-1 Class A/B amplifier with loudspeaker-specific signal processing and protection.


Self-powered PN212-SUBR cabinets include RHAON (Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network) for flexible digital signal distribution, loudspeaker management and control.


For use with external amplification.

Key Features

PN-1/PN-1R PowerNet Amplifiers

The PN-1, the heart of PowerNet performance, is a new kind of intelligent electronics system. It combines low-feedback Class A/B amplification and comprehensive signal processing into a single compact unit. Crossovers and parametric EQ are integrated into the signal path. Loudspeaker specific processing senses when output levels are about to damage the system and limits them to safe levels.

The PN-1R adds RHAON, the Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network. RHAON empowers you with full control over digital audio distribution, loudspeaker specific DSP and remote control/ monitoring - all using standard Ethernet hardware and cable.

The PN-1R offers dual analog inputs, dual CobraNet inputs and an AES3id serial input. Onboard DSP includes eight bands of parametric EQ, high and low shelving filters, delay and input level control, and is easily configured using RHAON software. Critical operating parameters such as signal clipping, amplifier output voltage and current, and temperature are continually monitored with automatic alert functions.

If you need Ethernet-based audio operations networking, order the single 12-inch RHAON empowered PN112-SUBR or the dual 12” PN212-SUBR.


Virtually any application where the visceral impact obtainable only from high power subwoofers is required.
