    I bought a set of these about 6 months ago to use with an old (mid 80's) EV 6 channel powered mixer. I use them for a solo show and open mic jam session with vocals, acoustic guitar(s), banjo, sometimes keyboards/drum machine. They sound good, are lightweight with comfortable handles, seem to fit well on stands. I also use them as vocal stage monitors when I play with a band - They work well for that application too. Keep in mind that these are small speakers intended for small venues. You can't power a metal band in an arena with them!!!As a comparison, one of the venues I play has a Fender PD500 as a house system. My system has crisper highs, fuller bass and more volume. There is enough of a difference that I will bring my own rather than use theirs.

    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.

      Stupid crazy price for Black Friday plus free freight.
      Even if the speakers don't last the cabs themselves are worth it. You can always buy better speakers

              Comments about Kustom PA KPC12 12" PA Speaker Cabinet with Horn:

              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.

                These Kustom speakers are a great comprimize between size and sound ! When a subwoofer is added they will work for many public events .
                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 .

                I am a solo acoustic performer. Excellent vocal and acoustic guitar sound reproduction. Handles plenty of volume and gives a fairly true acoustic sound output. I use a 300 watt powered head---NO problem !!!

                    Used one time so far, but definately seemed to serve their intended purpose well. Seemed to have good sound and adequite power for the small venue they were used in. This first use was vocalist and tracks only; at a later time that may change somewhat and we'll have to re-judge on that basis.

                    Comments about Kustom PA KPC12 12" PA Speaker Cabinet with Horn:

                    Got these speakers because my budget was tight and needed to do a small gig (wedding). I hooked them up and of course cranked em for all they had. Surprisingly clear and VERY loud. I have built competition car audio vehicles for many years, all have been trophy vehicles and the loudness of these speakers impressed me. They are NOT subwoofers. The mid and high ranges are good. Add lows to the equation and you will get distortion. Distortion is what will blow a speaker not power. Use these as intended and they rock. The price speaks for itself.
                    Mids and highs. I will look into getting subwoofers as an addition to complete the setup. These speakers are LOUD
