    Adds the functionality of a USB and SD media player to your performances.

    Combining clean, reliable power and impeccable audio quality with the added functionality of a USB and SD media player, Gemini’s RS-415USB lets you play music and sound files directly from an SD card or USB memory device. And for convenient, intuitive control over your tracks, the speaker also boasts a player section that allows you to easily navigate through songs contained on your storage devices and memory cards.

    With a 300-watt (245W + 55W) built-in amplifier, the RS-415USB provides generous power to its internal drivers. This active bi-amped loudspeaker boasts a beefy 15-inch woofer with a 3-inch voice coil for strong, rich lows and low-mids. The enclosure also houses a 1.75-inch Titanium high frequency driver that delivers crisp, lucid highs, which cut without sounding shrill or piercing.

    The speaker’s player section features an SD card slot and a USB port, allowing you to connect a memory card or portable storage device and play songs directly from it. There are even controls for Play/Pause, Stop, Repeat and Track Skip, enabling you to locate your desired track quickly and play it with ease.

    The RS-415USB also features bass and treble tone control, so you can match your sound to the acoustics of the performance space. And to ensure reliable, optimal performance, a Clip LED illuminates if the speaker system is overloading.

    For flexible connecting options, the RS-415USB provides dual microphone inputs (XLR and ¼-inch) with separate gain control, as well as Line RCA and XLR inputs with gain control. The speaker even has an XLR output connector, so you can daisy-chain additional speakers to create a larger, louder setup.

    The RS-415USB is ideal for bars, clubs, performance spaces and DJs, along with gigging bands and mobile musicians who want to incorporate backing tracks into their live performances. Not only does this versatile loudspeaker offer a high-quality, cost-effective PA solution; it doubles as a powerful media player, letting you choose the functionality that’s most appropriate for your application.

    I realize people give this a low rating because it is not a well known name brand. What a mistake. It is kind of heavy (50 lbs) but it seems lighter than my 4 x 12 bottom and reproduces my Carvin bass and Carvin guitar with an RP150 just fine. This is a great way to go if your sick of hauling gear around and I can practice backing tracks with the media player. I have Mesa guitar gear and Ampeg bass gear so if I say it sounds just fine then it is just fine - and built like a tank. Nuff Said!

    I purchased these speakers from MF through Stupid Deal. I recieved a mismatched pair. One speaker enclosure was larger and slightly different color grey. The front fascia and back consoles were also different. I called MF twice and they had no solution because they were no longer carrying that model. They offered me a less powerful speaker at the same price. Also, they had only sold me a protection plan for one of them (their mistake). The speakers sounded good, but one had considerably less noise. That, and the mismatched appearance and different physical size didn't work for me. I called the manufacturer and they did confirm that the speakers weren't the same production run. So I'm returning them. Altogether, I wasted about a day and a half. Very frustrating.

    Comments about Gemini RS-415USB 15" Powered Speaker w/Built-in USB and SD Card Reader:

    Nice Speaker for Home Use and Backyard Parties. 15" Speaker and a 2" Titanium Horn. Works very well outdoors. Sound will penetrate over 50 yards with no loss of Bass. Great for company events or for an Amateur DJ.
    The USB input lets you use any Thumb Drive or any Mp3 storage device. JUST PLUG AND PLAY, a small screen shows the details.You can load your best playlist from your computer on to a 10.00 flash drive, plug it in.... and you have Days of Tunes.
    The Mic input is good, and the speaker can be incorporated into anybody's system as a monitor or a Daisey Chained Powered PA. Heavy and Hard to carry, it makes you work for it's Great Overall Sound and Deep Bass.

    Comments about Gemini RS-415USB 15" Powered Speaker w/Built-in USB and SD Card Reader:

    The price offered was so good I had to check it out and after reading the specs - the USB & Card Reader sold me - I ordered them. Real easy to use and sound is great! The basic speaker stands are more than adequate. At 50 lbs each you may not want your wife or girl friend lugging these around - a hand truck recommended. Great Deal!

    Comments about Gemini RS-415USB 15" Powered Speaker w/Built-in USB and SD Card Reader:

    When two of these were shipped to me , both arrived damaged . Fortunately , I am an electronics technician . I repaired them rather than returning them only to get two more poorly packed and broken units . Shipping gets one star .
    As to the actual products , after damage was repaired , performance was excellent . It is not the product's fault that it was not protected from rough handling . The mp3 players are a nice bonus . The built in mixer works fine . If you add other input equipment there are many more possibilities . I would buy two more if they were on sale again and they pack them carefully this time .

            My friend and I play for nursing homes and we take this one powered speaker, and it handles the Bass the guitar, and both of our mikes.
            When we are practising we put in a sd card with over 300 songs and play along with them. Only had for couple of weeks and so far love it and not problems at all.

              Sonically this cab sounds good. I compared side by side with EON 15 First Gen. It has much better bass response because the Gemini Cab is much larger than the JBL Eon.

              Both cabs are similiar in wattage rating but the JBL seemed to have more headroom than the Gemini cab. I have pushed the EONs using them as FOH (Front of House) at small gigs with no trouble. I haven't done that yet with these cabs (don't really think I will).

              There are two input sections on the back of the Gemini cab each increasing preset gain settings. Top input is for a mic and is the hottest gain, second input is a line or CD (RCA) plugs with lower gain.

              The USB/SD player built in to the Gemini cab is very cool and convenient. I've already used them for a back yard barbecue with great success. I won't necessarily use these as Front of House cab at a gig but as a monitor, sidefill or casual music playback system they work fine.

              Price is very attractive too.

                I bought this somewhat on a whim, there were no reviews, but it sounded like a great way to have portable music with good sound. I couldn't be happier. The USB reader is awesome, you can load up a thumbdrive and have hours of music at a fraction of the cost of an iPod. I don't know how it would stack up in a professional capacity, but for work or around the house, it is awesome.
