The lightweight system has a powerful 12" woofer and a wide dispersion horn. capable of 800W peak and 200W RMS. On the backside you'll find plenty of input and outputs including XLR and 6.35mm jack for Mic 1, and XLR and 3.5mmline in for connecting your media devices, as well as an XLR line out to attach to another active speaker. You can control tone level for high and low frequency at ranges +12dB, as well control the volume for mic 1, and your other media devices running through the line in jacks. The PBX120USB comes with a remote control.

The manufacturer's packaging incorrectly states this item has wheels integrated into the design. Because of its lightweight and portable size the PXB120USB does not have built-in wheels.

Honestly, I was nervous about buying these because there were no reviews online about them. I've been wanting to buy 12"speakers for quite sometime and the price couldn't be beat. I researched anything I could find on Gem Sound. Most of the reviews I found stated the sound quality of their speakers was top notch. They shipped fast. After I unboxed and hooked them up I was totally surprised at how good the sound quality was. I did hear a very tiny hum that made me nervous, I put a 2-prong adapter on the plug but it didn't cancel out the hum. I took them to a kids disco & karaoke gig at an elementary school to try them out. The hum wasn't even noticeable. I can't believe how much KICK these speakers have! I normally use 15" Behringers and these are as loud. The sound quality is EXCELLENT. Used them the next night at another gig and they worked beautifully again. I even hooked one up in my house for the kids for a movie night, worked perfect. I love the USB stick and SD card feature. I am VERY HAPPY with this product.

The Musician's Friend Stupid Deal was hard to pass up, and at that price, I figured might as well have a set of them. I found them a little difficult to EQ compared to others I have (Alto, JBL.) I use them now in my practice studio for stereo electronic drum kit monitors and for that they work great. They do seem to have a lot more power than they are rated for; I have to turn the outputs way down compared to my other speakers, which is curious. So, all-in-all, at the Stupid Deal price they are certainly worth owning. At the normal selling price that I've seen, no way. For low-end speakers, if the price is the same or close, I would prefer Alto any timne.

    We use these in our Haunted Attraction, great units easy to use the perfect blend of power and sound for on the spot sound effects, bought a set of 15's last year just purchased 4 12's for next year, sound great for our use, if you want earth shattering bass you may want something else, but it just enough for our application

      Comments about Gem Sound PXB120USB 12" Powered Speakers Pair with USB/SD Media Player:

      We bought these to use as powered monitors for live performances. They are only doing vocals, so there isn't much stress on the woofer for that. They don't lay down on their sides very gracefully, but to be fair, they weren't designed for that. Nevertheless, they are very effective for this application and have plenty of output in a vocal stage monitor situation. Of course, at the sale price, there were EXTREMELY cost-effective.

        I am not an audiophile, but I have enjoyed listening to music for more than 50 years, and still play music with a small band. The sound quality (12 inch version) is excellent for the price, especially with the features like USB and SD card inputs which are hard to find even on more expensive powered speakers.

        Comments about Gem Sound PXB120USB 12" Powered Speakers Pair with USB/SD Media Player:

        After reading many reviews I purchased these speakers to use as floor wedges. Honestly that is all they are good for. As mains they are totally inadequate. The bass is non existant and when you try to EQ it in it is just muffled and weak. The highs are shrill and tinny. However, as floor wedges they work great because the speaker's actual frequency response sits right at a good vocal range. Their midrange clarity and power make it easy to set them up as monitors. Why are these speakers like this? Poor cabinet design. Take the speakers and guts out and put them in good cabinets and these speakers might be as good as the Mackie equivalent.

            Stupid Deal of the Day purchase , excellent value ! - doing this review because I don't understand other reviewers "con's & gripes" , if used within limits of common sense operation these units are absolutely quiet and deliver numerous options for connecting any audio , feedback is nil compared to many name-brand amps , keeping the volume mid-range these seem to provide great decibels for a small venue .... And wouldn't expect "bassy" beyond what (these quality) 12" speakers can move air-wise, . Surely the volume supplied at max will be troublesome, and possibly damaging to the unit ..(do appreciate the extra oomph),. Don't expect them to last if misused , or perform like units costing quantums more .... Yes they are built of plastic and can formidably mount at any demension high or low, Light enough to carry and ship to a mailbox ... I am pleased with these ....

              I purchased those speakers despite the numerous comments about how bad the sound quality is. I have to say I was presently surprised to hear how great the speaker sounded. It was so good that a DJ decided to buy them from me for his rig. There is a hum when the volume of channel 1 is all the way up. That can be annoying if you have nothing playing in the speakers. Other than that I would recommend this if u wanted a monitor, if u had a start up band, home theater...

              Another Stupid-Deal-Of-The-Day sale for a pair. Gotta jump on it! Was hoping to have an extra set of powered monitors. Out of the box, the first unit seemed to work fine, although bass was kinda weak, it was sufficient. USB player was lack luster, almost unusable because playback was pretty rough sounding. Second unit hummed right out of the box, so I sent it back. Musician's Friend refunded my money! Right now, these pair seemed to be on indefinite backorder, which would lead me to believe they're no longer being made.
