OVERVIEW

Great sounding and very affordable.

The Kustom KPC12P is a 100W powered speaker with a 12" Kustom-built loudspeaker and a piezo HF driver. It is tuned to deliver rich, balanced tonality while accurately reproducing a wide variety of audio content.

The Kustom KPC12P powered speaker provides balanced XLR and TRS 1/4" (balanced/unbalanced) input jacks. These may be used to connect a wide variety of line level devices such as non-powered mixers, preamps, keyboards, drum machines and other audio devices including music players such as iPods and CD players. A volume control adjusts the overall level of the powered PA speaker.

The Kustom PA speaker's TRS 1/4" line out jack may be used to daisy chain 2 or more KPC speakers for a wider dispersion of sound. For example, if a non-powered audio mixer has been connected to the KPC speaker's input, the line out of this first speaker may be connected to a second speaker's input. This is a daisy chain and it often requires shorter cable hookup lengths versus connecting the second speaker directly to the audio mixer.

Since its inception in 1966, Kustom has produced high-quality, affordable PA products, and the Kustom KPC12P PA speaker continues that tradition.

I bought these speakers, because I have used Kustom products,all through the 70s, & 90s 80s, and they always worked great.
The greatest advantage I experienced with these speakers, is that they don't have on-board EQ. This is why my Macs, and Qsc, end up feeding back! There is a double pre-amp conflict, anytime you use an EQ, after an already substantial EQ on your mixer. You have to be careful not to let the powered EQ on your Class A Powered speakers, over ride your board.
I can crank up these Kustom speakers, and set the EQ on my board, to get the sound that I like. With an additional EQ on the powered speakers, that come with their own treble, bass, and mids, are a nightmare to manage. On top of mixing the correct EQ with the board, you have to also equalize the powered speaker's EQ with what you already have going on, with your mixer. This is a double pre-amp conflict, that ends up feeding back easily.
These Kustoms are very simple! Just manage your EQ and sound on the mixer, and then set your desired volume on the Kustoms!
I have only done four gigs, with these, but I never had an iota of feedback, or even close!
I love the simplicity weight, size and volume!
If you know how to mix sound professionally, you will find these a dream to work with! Plus...... They are built like tanks!

Day I received plugged in mp3 player sounded great for about 15 minutes at half volume level. Then all of a sudden sounded like the voice coil went out and volume at half with just the sound of instruments. Changed cables and used two other player with same results. Called MF customer service send return label and they shipped out another. The next one was DOA sounded just like the problem I encountered the the first one straight out of the box.

    These things will blow your head off. If you EQ them right in your rig, you can't go wrong for the price. I have used many speakers and to tell you the truth, these are up there with the best. Get you a couple you will not regret it.

    Comments about Kustom KPC12P 12" Powered PA Speaker:

    Yes, I indicated novice but I know good sound and value. If you got these on sale, you cannot beat the value. Good sound, well built, functional, and good looking boxes. They are not powerful, but loud enough for small gigs and plenty loud for band practice. For the price I don't worry about them. My kids take them to gigs and practices and they have held up great. I, and the band, are also please with the sound- from vocals, to piano, to guitar. We do not put drums or bass through them. Great entry speaker set. I bought the matching monitors too. Monitors are great.

    Comments about Kustom KPC12P 12" Powered PA Speaker:

    I was hesitant honestly in buying these. With speakers, you usually get what you pay for and these certainly were not expensive by any means. I have been pleasantly surprised from the moment these came out of the box over a month ago. It's definitely not a high end system, but it does exceed what one would expect from this price bracket. I have a set of two 12" and did an event in a ballroom set for 400 people and was not even near the max capability of these speakers, volume wise. They're definitely loud speakers. If you need a PA system on a budget, consider grabbing two of these and mixer and you're in business.

      Had some shin digs spun with these and no complaints daisy chain a solid woofer with these and it's a package you can spin a small indoor gig without the woofer and may be able to pull it off since the low end can be eq'ed to sound ok but these are def mainly for highs and mids

      Speaker seems to work fine so far and happy with the speaker for the price. Seems to be built sturdy. I'm using it to amplify a Korg SP-250 for large room performances. I bought one, but may get a second if my venues get larger. However, shipper was a thin cardboard box with no padding of any kind. On arrival, one of the corners of the speaker was cracked. Does not affect performance, but Musician Friend could have prevented this.

        These are awesome little powered speakers ! They are easy to hook up , have versitility , adjust for suprisingly loud and clear output and are not overly heavy or hard to carry . These are great for smaller venues or as additional speakers for larger settings . They are a great value for the price and with reasonable care will last . I plan to purchase more of them in the future !
