    Worth every penny ...

    The outer material is thick (or if you prefer "heavy") and should stand up for many years. The padding is plenty thick enough to protect the speakers from bumps and vibrations. The bag is just the right amount of "over size" to allow for easy zipping while keeping the speaker snug. There is sufficient room inside to pack extra padding (I keep old towels for such things) around the speaker for rough trips. The outer pocket holds the electric cord easily with room for a few more odds and ends but it won't hold a long (30-foot +/-) heavy duty speaker cable. Since the speakers are heavy by themselves you'd likely want to tote big speaker cables separately anyhow. The design allows for easy insertion and removal of the speakers by myself. My two totes stack nicely together onto a dolly for easy transport. The straps are plenty strong and are connected to the totes securely; these won't fail. The stitching is heavy duty and well done. These bags scream quality; to me they are worth every penny.

    Great bags!

    Obviously being custom made for the K12, these fit perfect. They have flaps that open for the handles so you can either use the large bag handles, or the handles that are built into the K12s themselves. Super easy to use and do a great job protecting your mains. Highly recommend.

    It's A Well Made Case!

    The material is obviously durable, but its shape suggests that you put your speaker in face down. I found out early on that this is not good for the roughness of the road. While it will protect from scratches and moisture, dents in the grill can happen quite easily. Some sturdy foam, or even some hard plastic on the bottom would've made this case much more protective. So if you get one, I suggest laying your speaker in sideways. I've never had cases for my loudspeakers in the past, so this is definitely a plus!

    Good bag for the K12

    After spending $$$$ for my K12's I wanted to protect them well. These do the job but you still have to be careful. Padded case protects but you can't toss them around or you'll dent the K12 grills, especially around the sides. But I prefer this to any other solution I've seen.

    Awesome Totes!

    I ordered a pair of these totes about 2-3 weeks ago and had my first opportunity to use them this past weekend. The side pouch is perfect for keeping the power cord and a 50' XLR cable... I also love the velcro'ed flap that gives access to the K12's recessed handle... Brilliant!!!

    After investing a pair of K12's, there's no question that these will protect my investment when transporting!!!

    Cute but cheaply made

    The bags look good as you bring your gear in and out. I have had by bags for less than a year and the covering has holes wearing in them. I am very gentle with my gear (I am a woman) and for some reason this is happening. Now as for the hardware (zippers) they are very good.

    QSC K12 Tote

    I bought these totes for my Yamaha speakers. Yamaha make a cover but there is no place for the power cable. I have these on a set of K10 and have had zero problems. Good quality and easy to use on the pole if needed.

  • from March 3, 2015Music Background:

    Highly Recommended

    Excellent purchase and I would highly recommend these bags for anyone who owns these speakers. I also purchased bags for my K10's as well.

    K12 tote (2)

    I been hesitant on purchasing these for some time. But now that I am using the K12's for my band primarily, i thought it be a good idea for optimum protection? Well yes, i suppose they do protect better in adverse conditions? I Haven't came across that issue yet. But I most likely will NOT be using my K12 / Ksub outdoors in Adverse weather (rain) conditions anyways.
    I always transport these in the box they came in with the plastic cover over them inside. They were squared and were best suited for transport via pick up truck and went onto my dolly best this way. Plus they are stored in my "music" room shared with our orphaned cat Oreo. In a box no cat hair ,no cat pee or vomit can get on the speakers. The totes do collect hair and dirt not a big deal really though. But i found after my 1st use -getting these into the bags after a 4 hour gig was a bit awkward and troublesome. You have to lift them and place them into the bag no matter how you slice it. The bag will not be very cooperative in this process. But It can be done. After 4 hour gig wrestling these into the bags is kinda a drag and troublesome. Not much but enough. All i'm stating is the box and plastic was working well for me. So now I keep them in the Tote bag(s) and when I get home- cool they can still fit int he box for optimum storage / protection. Good things: the zipper pouch to carry power chord/ a xlr cable. (not enough room for an extension cable though, I can live with that.) I like the velcro handle door for one hand lift/transport. I suppose they will block out wind and any water and possible spilled beverages should they occur? Not so good: Expensive. I got Sweetwater to price match a lower price and had a $50.00 gift cert. so the cost was down to me which made it a no brainer to get the Tote's. As much as these QSC K12 's cost they should come with the covers. I think they would sell more that way? But what do i know? They are good to have, though i still keep my K12 's in the box. Now after 3 years -not a scratch or a ding on them. Still look brand new.
    3.5 rating for being a bit of a hassle and struggle. Pricey.
    4.0 Good quality material. Nuff' said.

    QSC K12 Tote

    The K12 Tote bag is great for making transportation easier while at the same time protecting my investment in the K12 speakers. Only wish the bag had a solid bottom to protect the grill.

    Lightweight Cover - Protects From Scratches

    In terms of keeping your speaker investment free from unnecessary scratches, this is a great investment. The major downside is that the side pocket barely holds the power cord, let alone a cord and anything additional such as an XLR. This could have easily been solved by making the top flap a bit longer or widening the pocket. That small grip aside, the zipper seems solid, and the padding, while minimal, does seem to provide an adequate amount of protection against transport damage.

    Great Tote Bag

    The K12 Tote bag is great for making transportation easier while at the same time protecting your investment in the K12 speakers. No more hassle of having to dig the right cable out of a bag full of mic and speaker cables! Your speaker cable and power cable fit in the bag nicely on the backside of the speaker. The side pouch is only really big enough for the power cable.

    K12 Tote

    Totes are heavy-duty and protect the speakers as well as they can without being a hard sided road case!

    Nice Tote!!!

    It's a bag... a nice one. Can't imagine I'll ever be BLOWN AWAY by a tote. But there is certainly no reason to pick 3rd party bag or cover unless of course you want a lesser or equivelent bag.

    QSC Tote Bags for K12 Speakers

    As great as the QSC K12 speakers are, they are very susceptible to scuffing and scratching. These bags eliminate that, protect the speakers and certainly make them easier to transport.

    That said, I didn't give them the full five=star rating because they are far too expensive for what they are...just nylon totes with (what appears to be a very expensive) embroidered QSC logo.

    Good Addition to your K12

    I have only had this case a few weeks but appears to be well made and adequate padding to protect your investment. I would recommend this product.

    It's a great bag, but whatever you do, do not check this bag with the speaker on a plane.

    Durable, Well Constructed Bag

    I bought two of the K12 totes to protect my investment during transport. Now I don't have to be so conscientious about scratching or denting my speakers when loading them in and out of a vehicle. They look very sharp and professional. They advertise, "I care about my gear!" Granted, the tote padding is only about a 1/4" thick. It's really all you need to prevent minor damage: scratches, dings. It's not like you're going to purposely bang around an $800 speaker because you know you have ample padding surrounding it. The nylon canvas is very durable. However, I get a little nervous holding it by the handles, though they feel sturdy. I can't help staring at where they're sewn to the sides wondering "what if" they ever break? Probably not, I'm just being paranoid. I'm happy with these and once you see the quality and construction the price isn't that bad. Afterall, someone had to take the time to assemble the bag. And, the QSC logo is embroidered on the side. If you're contemplating buying these you must ask yourself, what's $85 compared to $800 if it will prevent scratches?

    Not too shabby

    The K12 tote does exactly what it's designed to do. It protects your K12 (or similarly sized) speaker from damage during transport. There's a side pocket which fits the power cable and a speaker cable nicely. There's also a flap on one end you can use for either the handle on the top of the speaker or for the speaker pole. Construction is good, padding isn't as thick as I'd hoped, but is sufficient. The price is just a little bit high for such a basic case.
