OVERVIEW

Affordable USB-capable powered speaker.

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.

    A fellow took this apart, found the loose wire and fixed it for me. Now it works very nicely. One thing I noticed is that a PA is not really a good substitute for a guitar amp. My regular amp does a much better job at a third of the price, but that is not a deal breaker since that is what PAs are for. Also bought a blue tooth converter for it and it plays music nicely from a tablet or whatever.

    Bought for a Christmas present in November. Grandkids opened it Dec 26th, plugged it in and nothing. Changed the fuse and nothing. Got it too early to return within 30 days. Moral: Check anything expensive as soon as you get it. Don't wait until after the gift is given.

    Comments about Gem Sound PXA115T-USB 15" Powered Speaker USB/SD Media Player:

    Mainly, they sound great without EQ out the door and made pretty well. The metal perforated convex woofer grills collapse inward to concave when pressed upon and when their screws are tightened. Not a big deal but detract from the aesthetics. The extra features USB/SD media player in both cabinets though don't seem to work and there is no documentation on them. What I though was pretty cool, the molded plastic stand inserts for floor monitors adaptation, snapped off and broke immediately when I attempted to move the cabinet. The power cables do not reach the ground when speakers are at eye level. The XLR mic input volume is shared/mixed with the 1/4" instrument jack which is OK if you can balance from the instrument's volume control to the 1/4" jack. Just adequate but ok mic gain with a Shure SM58 microphone. The small dilemma is, if I could get the USB/SD player to work on one of the cabinets, how would I get one of it's player's stereo channels out to the other cabinet as stereo? When linking the second cabinet with the first's output jacks, it would only be a binaural (dual mono) system, not stereo. If you are running it in stereo, you are out of luck with the media player as stereo.
    Again, basically good sounding units, but the features that add to the purchase incentive come up a touch short.

      Guitar amp alternative? Yes in my case. I purchased a boss GT10 and just couldn't get a pure sound running it through a conventional amp. I changed its settings and it just wouldn't get a clean signal without over modulating. I plugged it up to this thing and holy cow it sounds incredible. Highly recommended for this setup. The MP3 player is a cool bonus also as you can jam along to music without having to plug in another player.

        Loud hum. Control Screen would not come on. I called the manufacturer who immediately said it probably had s short and that I should send it back.
