OVERVIEW

Pair of compact 15" active loudspeakers with USB connectivity.

Gem Sound's PXA Series powered speakers provide an inexpensive sound reinforcement solution that satisfies all of the chief requirements for a powered speaker. The USB series additionally provides a direct connection to your digital music library, either via SD cards or direct input from your USB devices. This is the PXA115T-USB, a 300-watt powered enclosure with a 15" woofer and a 1" high frequency compression driver. It additionally features a small input section that enables you to perform or make your presentations using just the PXA115T-USB without any other equipment at all. Just plug in your microphone and your guitar or keyboard and go. You can independently control two channels at the input stage, and you can shape the sound with an onboard five-band equalizer.

The USB component of this speaker makes for seamless presentations. You can pipe background music in for karaoke shows, or you can uase it to play recorded music on your set breaks. The USB player features transport controls including volume, play, pause, stop and rewind, all controllable via the included remote.

It is reasonably lightweight, very rugged and sounds good. For rehearsals or performances, the Gem Sound 115T-USB offers reliability, portability and build quality, all at a very fair price.

      Comments about Gem Sound PXA115T-USB 15" Powered Speaker Pair:

      I bought these speakers hoping that they would have enough power to be mains for my 5 piece rock band. When I first got them, I plugged a Shure 58 directly into the mic input and turned the volume halfway up. No audible sound was heard until I turned it to 80%. Maxed out it was just loud enough for the small bedroom I was playing in. The description claims you can plug a guitar straight into the speaker, but when I did, I had terrible feedback. I took both speakers to the local music store and had bass, guitar and vocals run through a professional mixer into the speakers. With both speakers maxed out on volume, the acoustic drum set was still much louder than both speakers. I tried Peavey PA speakers at the store rating at 800W peak and only had them turned up to 20% to get the same loudness the Gem Sound had maxed out. I also was unable to play my ipod through the USB input and Musician's Friend were unable to help me get it to work either. I will be returning these speakers and paying slightly more for speakers that I know will be reliable.

          Comments about Gem Sound PXA115T-USB 15" Powered Speaker Pair:

          Solid build quality construction. Gem's are listed as 300 RMS but the paperwork that came with the speakers states 250 RMS. Not happy about that. It took some break end time for speakers to start sounding good. These are 15" speakers so they are not built for small rooms, It sounds like the sweet spot (distance from speaker with the best sound) is 20+ ft. The Clip light is on all the time at 3/4 + volume and up (this volume level needed for good sound). The fins on the amp gets warm but not hot running at this level.

          The speaker is what I expected. Not the loudest 15" but for the price it is hard to beat. When you can buy 2 or even 3 of these for the price of ONE of the other name brand speakers, this is a bargain for anyone on a budget. For my use 2 moderately powered and priced 15" speakers will beat one expensive high powered 15" speaker. The speaker cabinets are built to be stacked, it has round holes kind of like legos), NICE IDEA..

          When I purchased these speakers I was looking at the Gem's and the Harbingers V2115's.
          Gem's are 50lbs. Harbingers are 42lbs. Both are RMS 250 Watts. I thought the Gem's were 300 RMS. Both were on sale and could be purchased for basically the same price. Harbingers have more handles for lifting. Gem has built in USB and MP3 player and remote. USB can be used to power a blue tooth adapter making these wireless.

          Comments about Gem Sound PXA115T-USB 15" Powered Speaker Pair:

          They sound as good as my Mackies not as powerful lots of uses, mains, monitors (floor,side fills) 4-6 for 180 coverage a little under powered but can over come that by using compressors/limiters; cheep but not junk add a xover and a sub and you will have a killer system, the 300 watts will be more than enough. So save your money buy 8 and and some 18" subs and they will do a 1000 to 1500 outside I know I have done it.
