Media - Sound, Lights, Video - are my profession. When I was asked to do sound for a small beach wedding several hours away, my problem was equipment that would fit in a fuel-efficient car.

When these speakers popped up on the SDOTD, my problem was solved.

The built-in MP3 player - which works with SD and USB inputs with both panel and remote controls - was the first to save me some space.

The adequate 250w RMS amp in each speaker saved more space. I have some JBL powered speakers, they sound great, but they're pretty heavy. The Gem Sound speakers weigh less than 25 pounds each, so I can tote one down to the ceremony on the beach (powered by an emergency car starter and a power inverter), then carry it back to its mate at the poolside reception and never break a sweat.

With 1/4", RCA and XLR inputs on 2 channels, a MP3 Player making a 3rd channel, and a Mix Out controllable with the included remote, you'd be hard pressed to find a more feature-filled system for this kind of money.

I set up and linked two speakers for a test and was cranking out tunes via USB less than 5-minutes from the box.

BOTTOM LINE: I do sound for a living, and these won't be my first choice in a critical situation, but for smaller or mobile applications, the Gem Sound PXB150USB 15" Powered Speakers can't be beat.

I got a good deal on these as the Stupid Deal of the Day. I'm planning to use one or both of them as monitors for live performances.

The sound appears to be OK. Nothing spectacular, nothing bad.

Physically they are larger than I expected -- but the fact that they say 15" should have clued me in. The cases are solid with lots of handles and very lightweight for powered speakers. (a little over 30 pounds each by my scale.) The make decent (but large) monitors with a wedge built into the cabinet to set them at a fixed angle, and they have a pole-mount socket.

Of course if you mount them on a pole, the five foot long power cord is going to be a problem, but it's a standard plug so you can buy a real power cord for it.

The controls on the back are labeled well enough that I could figure out where to plug in microphone and/or line inputs and where to get XLR output of the "mix". This is fortunate because there is no manual. No tech specs. Nothing! That's why I had to use my scale to weigh them!

I tried the GemSound web site. It does not even mention these speakers! In fact it's a pretty lame web site.

All in all it makes a pretty good stupid deal of the day. I'm glad I bought them, but there are better choices if you are paying street price.

    Ordered this speaker pair on the Stupid Deal of the Day sale. My band was planning on using these for the main output from the mixer. One of the speaker's woofers blew out almost immediately and that one had to be sent back. The other speaker began fuzzing as if something in the tweeter was loose and it got worse with volume. Will be returning them both for a refund.

    Comments about Gem Sound PXB150USB 15" Powered Speakers Pair with USB/SD Media Player/Wheels:

    Bought this as a Stupid Deal of the Day, so the price was right. If there were a 1/4" line input, these speakers would be perfect for my needs in smaller venues. As it is, I can plug into a 1/4" to RCA adapter, and use the Left/Mono input on Channel 2 for input. Most of my gear has 1/4" line out, so the XLR is nice, but not what I usually need.
    Otherwise, they sound good and are easy to carry and mount. I'd buy them again, but I'd be happier with a 1/4" line input.

      Using These For A Karaoke Company

      Comments about Gem Sound PXB150USB 15" Powered Speakers Pair with USB/SD Media Player/Wheels:

      I own a Karaoke company that does multiple bars and restaurants on a weekly bases. We bought these speakers because they were extremely inexpensive and we needed a 3rd system that was very portable. Currently we use 12" Thump (Mackies) on one system and 15" Thump (Mackies) on another.

      These speakers are lighter than the 12" Thumps that we use. The wheels are amazing and make it so easy to move around. The design overall is very attractive and they do not look like your typical "cheap" speakers.

      The sound is well worth the money. The highs seem crisp and clear. It makes the vocals sound good. I actually think that the vocal sound better in a big room with these speakers over the Thump 12's or 15's that we have. I read all the reviews about the lack of bass on these speakers and it really concerned me. I like bass, and I think it helps fill a room and make everything sound better. The bass on these speakers IS weak but if tweaked correctly with your soundboard and the EQ on the back...They can sound good. You WILL NOT get the deep window shattering bass that you will get on more expensive 15's. It is much more flat and when you turn it up loud you can tell how flat it truly is. Still bang for the buck these are very good speakers for what I do. They fill a room that's about 1800 square feet with more than 75 people in it every week. They don't overheat and don't clip.

      I would recommend these a very acceptable "Middle-Low Speaker". I rate the Thumps a 7.5-10. I would Rate these 6-10.

        Great value as SDOTD. They have so many options on how to connect to them. I have completed approx 8 hours of break in at increasing volume levels. The sound get better as the speakers are broken in. I have used them for monitors at one performance so far. They sounded better than the mains the band was using that night. I bought the 2 year warranty just in case. Pretty great so far. limited bass as with any plastic cabinet but usable. I like them alot.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Gem Sound PXB150USB 15" Powered Speakers Pair with USB/SD Media Player/Wheels:

          Three nice handles with wheels. Locking screw for pole mount. Just under 30 lbs each, which is lite for 15" powered speakers.

          The pair comes with two remotes and two MANUALS, and the controls on the back are labeled well.

          One speaker would be perfect for one mic, one guitar playing along with the built in MP3 player. The built-in mixing can balance the three sources. No 48vdc Phantom Power on the two XLR inputs. Some users are trying to use Phantom Powered mics. The speaker grilles get dented easily.

          Easy to daisy chain XLR line out into next speaker XLR input. Three inputs XLR, RCA, 1/4 inch.

          I didn't notice the lack of low end bass that many users report. The built-in equalizer has separate Treble and Bass control.

          The MP3 works from SD or USB Flash drive stick. Nice. It would be nice to have Bluetooth linked option, but that can be added into the RCA jacks and powered by the USB port.

          I needed extra speakers for bar, so price was so cheap so decided to try, first one they sent used and damaged speakers, but replaced with brand new with no problem. My big complaint is high fr driver gives very very hssssing sound, so you have to turn down high EQ. Bottom 15 inch speaker sounds ok. But that hsssss-in sound just killed me. I like wheels on speaker. I sent it back, but had to pay shipping that cost pretty good money, good lesson. I am adding extra few hundred getting beringer powered speakers instead, I would not recommend unless very low on money

            These arrived on my doorstep today. I can't comment on long term durability/reliabilty but first impressions are that they are an incredible bargain.
            They were easy to set up. I plugged a USB stick in with some of my favorite tunes, got the reomote out and enabled the battery, and was jamming to high quality sound at volumes that I could hear over my drums. That's what I bought them for, and so far, they seem fantastic. I think they would make great small venue speakers or personal monitors too.
