I run a working band and a part time small sound re-enforcement company. I now own 5 of the Kustom KPC12M monitors and that's what I use for every gig. Never had a break down. When used correctly these speakers last a long time. I have tried many other monitors over the years with varying degrees of problems including under rated horns, pealing exterior covers, bad soldering, weak 12" speakers and poorly constructed cabinets. My Kustoms have not had any of those problems. We recently did a benefit show with 9 bands and they all loved the sound on stage.
Good solid piece of equipment, jacks are recessed, handles are strong, not too heavy at about 33 pounds and a sturdy grill protects the speaker.
Best bang for the buck hands down. We would all love to have a row of prestigious monitors, but back here in the real world we use Kustom KPC12M's because they always work and stand up to the constant abuse of the music business.
No other monitor in the price range can come close to the reliability and sound.

I bought these monitors about a year ago, and I was originally pretty impressed. However, after an average amount of use (once a week at practice and at about 6 gigs), I've noticed a few problems. First off, Kustom uses PLASTIC nuts to secure the 1/4" jacks. These WILL break, and then you will be in trouble at a gig. Secondly, the plastic that Kustom uses on the horn is extremely thin and prone to fracture. In fact, I just noticed that the horn in one of my monitors was completely detached from its screwmounts - the plastic had broken around the screw holes, so there was nothing securing the horn to the cabinet. Basically, you get what you pay for. HTH.

                  I recently bought a package deal from MF which was made up of a Peavey 400 watt power head and 2 Kustom KPC12 passive speakers with stands and cords. I needed a compatible stage monitor and decided to go with 1 12" one rather than a couple smaller ones. This Kustom 12" monitor is a perfect fit. Sounds great and seems durable enough for my needs.

                      I bought a pair of these about 12 years ago. We were just starting a praise and worship band and had no money. These were our mains for a couple of years. Then we expanded and the pair become an acoustic guitar amplifier with a small pa head. Next step up and these two became our monitors. I have used them for church programs, weddings, and everything you can imagine. I am now with another start up praise and worship band. I bought a Yamaha Stage Pas system and drug out my old Kustom speakers to use as monitors once again. So, 12 years and counting and they are still in regular use. I gave them 5 stars for value. At this price, you can't go wrong.
