Great sounding and very affordable.

The Kustom KPC12MP is a 100W powered monitor speaker with an angled wedge design, a 12" Kustom-built loudspeaker and a piezo HF driver. The Kustom monitor is tuned to deliver rich, balanced tonality while accurately reproducing a wide variety of audio content.

The Kustom KPC12MP powered monitor 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. The Kustom KPC12MP speaker's volume control adjusts the overall level.

A TRS 1/4" line out jack may be used to daisy-chain two 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 hook-up lengths versus connecting the second speaker directly to the audio mixer.

In addition to being used as a powered floor monitor, a built-in polemount socket enables you to elevate the Kustom KPC12MP for use as a powered PA speaker.

    Definitely would recommend, and will buy another one (or two) in the future as we expend and need more!
    We have two of these for our church worship band. Love the individual volume control on each monitor. Allows us to adjust the volume independant of the output sent from the sound board, even when they are chained together. So our drummer can crank his up to his heart's content, and I don't have to be blasted out on the other side of the stage with mine!
    Sound good overall. Not sure if I'd use them as main speakers, but as monitors, they give a accurate representation of our music. At least as good, if not better, than other floor wedge monitors I have used in the past, ones that cost a decnt amount more!
    After 3 months of use, setting up and moving every week, they are still functioning like new. They aren't built like a tank, but seem like they will last a long time if you take reasonable care of your equipment.

    For the price, the product is perfect for our drummer to have his own wedge. We typically run it at 100%, since it's only 100 watts. Within 2-3 times using this product, the volume pot is failing. Once I turn the volume past half, it cuts out altogether and I have to wedge a band business card under the knob to get sound out of the speaker; even then, it takes a bit of tweaking. Haven't yet tried contact cleaner, but that's my next solution. Warranty service seems to be a hassle and I'll be without the speaker for a period of time...inconvenient to say the least.

        I Have 4 of these.One gets used 7-365 3 hours a day sometimes longer,for over 3 years now.It passed the test of time.I got my moneys worth.Used for vocals. with out a P.A.Never gets hot or gave me any trouble.I use it with a DIGITECH VOCAL 300.It sounds huge.Live shows and rehearsal.I find I can carry 2 at once no issue.It has more power then I ever needed.I still have my Mackie 808 1200wt power mixer with the Mackie s500 Speakers.I never use them to heavy to move.
        You must use a preamp or mixer.Don't plug in with out one or you doing it wrong. Really good deal.
        When moving them protect the input side.and they will last a long time.They are the real deal!

            Nice light weight unit that sounds good. For half the price of a typical non-powered monitor, you get a good sounding monitor with power. Was using a Hotspot powered monitor and wasn't happy with the sound. This unit took care of the problem. Only issue is that it is much bigger than a Hotspot.

            Comments about Kustom PA KPC12MP 12" Powered Monitor Speaker:

            I started by buying one to see how I liked it... then I bought another. Now, after buying a third, a disturbance in The Force is prompting the purchase of a forth. I can tell you with all honesty and sincerity that "this little one IS worth the effort." Let me put it to you this way: you could smuggle these from one side of the galaxy to the other, see a lot of strange things and never see anything to convince you that they wont take what you throw at them. In fact, I pair them with my sub (EV SxA180) and use them as my PA when I DJ weddings and such! They're also great for small acoustic shows. Let me end with this: hokey religions and ancient weapons are not match for as KPC12MP at your side.

            I own two of these monitors. I use them with my Fender Passport 500 Pro PA.
            They work flawlessly! Low noise, (almost none at all even at high vol levels)
            Highs, Mids, and Lows are clear. I use my PA and these monitors for vocal and inst amplifying in my home studio and also as my home stereo system. The first time that the keyboard player in my jazz band heard his keys through these speakers he put a big smile on his face. He took the amp that he kept at my house home that day. He didn't need it anymore. All of the singers who use them on a regular basis like them too.

              I originally purchased a couple of these to use as monitors for my large PA set up, they worked perfectly and sounded great. For smaller gigs I connect them to a small mixer with effects and use them for the mains. They have plenty of volume and sound really clear. Jut do it!

                I bought two of these and extra horn drivers in case the Piezo blew. I never replaced the Piezo because I have not yet blown them. I bought another two of these monitors because they are so convenient. I bring a small mixer and two or four of these Kustom Monitors and a gig bag for wires and my P.A. is good to go. It is not a "JBL, EV, or QSC" but the sound is clean and the unit is reliable. The first time I bought them I bought the service plan but have not used it in almost three years. They are light, look good (if you don't bang them up and they are reliable. I should write a bad review because I want to keep the price down for the next time I buy one. But "No complaints here it is a good basic product for a good price".
