One thing 1st, please:

To "Britfunk" from WV, who wrote a review on these on 12/11/11 or so, Ok. ANY musician with experience will be able to tell that no, one DOES NOT put an Electric Bass thru these. Or even go line out from bass amp to these. NOT designed for it. Not even a synth bass. Even miking a bass drum would cause damage to the woofer. Mid to high frequencies is what it can handle, and provided you don't crank the volume/OD it. That being said....

I own a Harbinger HA120 P.A. amp head, 4 channels. Just the head; got it cheap from a pawn shop. Called the Harbinger Co. to inquire about buying the speakers that came with it. Rep said they don't sell them separately; but a good substitute would be these Kustom KPC12's. So, got a pair, and they sound great! They DO put out some great bass response, at modified volume levels. One could play a coffeehouse gig/small gig with these, and do fine. 20-80 peeps in a venue; your outfit will be heard. Or a backyard party. At one time, a band had to rely on 100 watt P.A systems in clubs. Back in the 50s-60s-70s. Can you imagine Van Halen, Aerosmith, the Stones, Beatles, the Who....etc...being heard thru a small P.A. Me neither, but it happened.

Bottom line: get these. For the price, they do well. I wanna get the KPC 15's. Recommended.

I purchased these cabs new from Musician's Friend, and I admit the sound is pretty incredible for so little money. When we're playing smaller venues with our acoustic trio they perform very well indeed and overall I have been impressed.

That said, the last gig I did with them the woofers started buzzing and distorting terribly. After emailing back and forth with a rep from Kustom it was determined that even though I was well within the power handling of the speakers I had probably damaged the woofers by running my electric bass through it, and I was advised that they really weren't designed to reproduce those frequencies (my bass is a four-string tuned EADG).

I was initially pretty annoyed, in that it appeared that I would have to pay shipping for the cabinets both to Kustom and back to me for warranty work. After a bit of discussion with the Kustom rep, he felt comfortable with my working on the cabinets and sent two replacement woofers to me in-warranty on Kustom's dime. I did replace the speakers and the cabinets are as good as new, so I do have to give credit due to the company for flexibility and a desire to take care of their customers.
Small footprint and weight is managable. Good-looking cabinets, though they do get little dings really easily. I am kind of uptight about my gear and take really good care of it - I don't mind honest wear, but these look broken-in pretty quickly.
Having been in the guts of these cabinets I will state that the internal build quality is pretty good. They're solid gear that should take a reasonable amount of normal use without failure.

I can't stress enough, do NOT run heavy bass through these speakers and you should be just fine. I decided to start taking my normal bass rig to gigs and running just the high end of the bass guitar through the PA (sort of a cheap and dirty bi-amping for bass) for better projection out front.

I'll also mention that I inquired of Kustom if the KPC15 would be a better choice for running electric bass in our group (rather than sherp around my bass amp) and was told, "they're really not designed to run a bass through."
If you're not pushing heavy bass through them I absolutely recommend them. They're well-built, solid, and the clarity is amazing for the price.

          I just bought one of these and use it with my stereo system and works really well. When i go out with my band and play music, i use it as a monitor. It works fantastic and could use it for our pa system if i wanted to. It works very good for my standards and well worth the price for the sound you get out of them. By the way, i am on a budget so these suit me just fine.

                    Speakers where delivered on time and in excellent condition. My setup is not very big, but it has very good sound now. They are rated at 100 rms, and they perform to every specification listed flawlessly. Distortion is not an issue with this line of speakers.

                    I would also like to point out that the salesperson did not try to sell me components that I did not need. She looked up the specifications of my older mixer and offered these speakers as a good solution. I was ready to scratch my older system until I made this purchase. I do not have a lot of money to throw away, and her professionalism really matters to me.

                    Trust is important to all of us these days. These fine folks have earned mine.

                      For PA use they work great in pairs ... just add more pairs for bigger events . They are well built and not heavy to carry . These are an excellent value and will last a long time .
