OVERVIEW

Active PA speakers with Bluetooth connectivity.

The HPS Series loudspeakers are Gemini's most powerful ABS speakers to date. Featuring Gemini’s newest audio processing technology built into a 1000-watt class D amplifier, the HPS Series offers high quality sound at an affordable price. Recreating your sound efficiently is the HPS Series specialty. 


The transducers are articulate and responsive to the subtle and dynamic changes in your performance. The two-way speaker is composed of a large low frequency woofer and powerful voice coil needed to push the low frequencies around the room. The tweeter is a pure titanium compression driver with a wide dispersion horn for airy and detailed highs even at large distances or angles from the speaker.

The HPS Series loudspeakers are built like a tank, the ABS nylon fiber cabinet are strong and durable in the face of continual use and abuse. Each cabinet also has multiple handles carrying and options for hanging or stand mounting.

Bluetooth wireless connectivity and a USB/SD MP3 Player are directly built into the HPS-12BLU so that you have options for track playback and connectivity. With the option of Bluetooth you can play tracks directly from a Bluetooth enabled device and roam around the room as you please.

I use it for my 24inch bass drum to mike the port and use the #2 channel to mike the snare. It gives a lot of bottom without rattle. I have 2 other sets of speakers, I use with a mixer. I stack the 2 speakers and does nice job. I got this to cut down on size and keep from carrying 2 speakers and mixer and 2 speaker cables to connect the speakers. This does a nice job and sounds good on the floor beside the drums. I can only turn the volume level on channel 1 to 12 o'clock position before feeds back. I set lows all way clockwise and highs all way counter clockwise. It does a nice job with adding body. I use E mad 2 batter head with wide muffle foam ring on my 24 inch bass drum head. Channel 2 is not as loud as channel 1 but it is sufficient for snare drum. My bass man plugged into this amp and could not believe the bottom he got from it. One thing set the speaker on carpet or mat or it will walk backwards when using. It really kicks out a lot of air from the top ports. It moved a foot on me last week and the wall stopped it or it would have kept on going. The blue tooth and card and usb slots are an added feature.

Not for musicians.

Unfortunately, this is not what I need for vocal/music entertainment. This is recommended for public speaking venues, small venues. But musicians should go for the higher end speaker.

    Comments about Gemini HPS-12BLU 12" D-Class Powered Speaker with Bluetooth:

    I'm pleasantly surprised at the nice clear sound. I've had them a short time, and have only used them about four times, but they perform quite well for the money. They're lighter than I expected but deliver a nice punch.

    The only thing I dislike is that the USB and SD card functions don't give you a visual interface, so you can't really navigate folders or pick tracks with any precision, but that's pretty easy to work around.

                    Picked this up as a practice/rehearsal speaker for my three piece acoustic band. Haven't had a chance to push it yet, but sounds great with acoustic bass guitar, vocals, and some mp3s to play along with. Planning on bringing to gigs to use as a bass amp or a back-up monitor/PA for smaller gigs.
