OVERVIEW

A powerful 1000W loudspeaker in a lighweight, portable design.

The Alpha 112 is designed from the ground up to be the most transparent loudspeaker in its class. Its neodymium 12” LF driver produces smooth low-end while its custom designed 1.75” titanium HF driver provides incredible high-end across a wide dynamic range.

The Alpha 112 has a complete mixer section with all the inputs and outputs you need, plus some additional features to enhance your sound. Two Mic/Line combo inputs with independent volume controls are available as well as an XLR output to link speakers. The Contour switch instantly provides a gentle EQ curve that's perfect for music playback.

The lightweight cabinet is perfectly suited to perform as a traditional upright loudspeaker or as a floor wedge monitor. The Alpha 112 is stand- or pole-mountable via its standard 35mm socket, and standard M10 rigging points are built-in for flying the speaker overhead.

Alesis Digital Signal Processing is onboard to control key aspects of the speaker’s operation, resulting in precisely tuned and completely consistent performance for any live sound application.

NOTE: This is for one loudspeaker.

    Comments about Alpha 112 1000 Watt, 12" Two way Loudspeaker with Built-in Alesis DSP:

    I purchased these because I wanted to have some powered speakers to go with my passive mobile DJ system. When I had these plugged in at home, there was quite a bit of hiss so I wasn't quite sure I wanted to use them at a gig. However, I tried it anyway going through a power conditioner and it sounded great. Good bass and powerful sound.

    I used it at a wedding with these placed up front with an 18" powered sub and 4 12" passive Behringers. This setup worked great because I could adjust the volume separately (a little higher) which could push the volume over the dance area and to the main dining area. The bass was up front as well (for the dance area mostly). This allowed me to turn down the volume a bit for the back speakers (behringers) so that people could still chat in the background/dining area and bar.

    I will also use these for small gigs where I do not want or will need to bring the powered bass or an amp. Although these do sound great through a power conditioner, I do find I prefer a passive system over these. I can bring two less extension cords, and these are a little heavier and physically are larger than the behringers so it makes packing them for transport and moving them a little more work.

      Comments about Alpha 112 1000 Watt, 12" Two way Loudspeaker with Built-in Alesis DSP:

      Got these on Stupid Deal of the Day and they are TOTALLY worth even the normal price. Really good, full-range sound, though I found the Contour button to create a little more feedback and ringing, so I tend to use it without that setting. I bought these to replace passive 12" monitors and the sound difference is night and day.

      They are heavy, but not too heavy and I think that they can take a beating, with the rugged plastic enclosure.

      One suggestion to Alesis (and Alto since these are the same speakers): Add a strain relief clip to the back panel for the cables to clip into. When the speaker is 8 feet off the ground, heavier cables can pull down the on the power jack and mic inputs. I taped the cables to the speaker poles with some slack above the tape line to create good strain relief. It would be great to have this built in.

      Also: Thank you Musician's Friend Customer Support. My speakers arrived with European power cables in the box (mistakes happen and I am not one to get bent out of shape about it), but MSCS sent me replacement cables ASAP.

        Comments about Alpha 112 1000 Watt, 12" Two way Loudspeaker with Built-in Alesis DSP:

        I purchased three of Alpha 112 for live sound monitors. These units are more powerful than their Alto cousins. The Alpha 112 is clear and with good even natural sound. Didn't use any Eq'ing with these cabs. I have had zero complaints from bands I run sound. These units replaced JBL Eon 1st generation powered grey cabs. The Alesis Alpha 112 are more powerful and easier to handle than the JBL Eon's though I love the Eons too, but they are showing their age and getting old, showing road wear.

        Great speaker for the price! Purchased one to use as a monitor when doing larger gigs. The ease of a powered speaker with 2 input channels and independent volume controls let me use this for a backyard BBQ, and even used this single speaker for a birthday party (~100 people).

        Has good bass response for a 12. DSP boost makes it sound really good, up until really high volumes (highs sound too harsh at right below clipping). Let's see how reliable it is.

        I will be using this more than I thought!

          Good bang for buck.. Improved performance compared to closest competition for this price range,, make a good monitor wedge, or FOH if used with subs..

            I needed to replace my powered monitors/speakers (which shall remain nameless) because I needed more wattage and there was too much hiss/noise. Since I'm on a tight budget, I jumped at the chance to grab one of these on the stupid deal of the day. This thing is NICE! Crystal clear, very little to no hum or hiss, and plenty of power. It even provides all the low end thump I need from a monitor perspective. I used one of these during an acoustic show and it provided a very clear sound, with true representation. Should this deal appear again, I will get another!!!

                    Comments about Alpha 112 1000 Watt, 12" Two way Loudspeaker with Built-in Alesis DSP:

                    These are great speakers. I have the Alto TS115a, which are the same design and reported to be an "upgraded" version of the Altos. These work and sound quite nice. There is a little more hiss in these speakers than the Altos, but they also have a lot more volume when at the same gain level, so that might be part of it. The full grill and clean design really make them nice for Wedding DJing and corporate gigs. The bass is actually tighter on the 12's than the 15's, but I would suggest a sub as always when doing louder DJing gigs and such. If you need dependable, good sounding monitors, or you need mains for coffee shops and events for about 200 or so, you would do well to have these. Plus, the price is great, I got mine with the "Stupid Deal of the Day" and got two of these. If that deal comes back up, I am seriously thinking about buying 2 more just so I have extras!!!
