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.

Features
  • One 100W Class AB, built-in power amplifier with current-limited protection circuitry
  • One 12", Kustom-built PA speaker
  • One piezo horn with wide dispersion flare
  • Angled, wedge-shaped design
  • One balanced XLR input jack
  • One TRS 1/4" input jack
  • Volume control
  • One TRS 1/4" line out jack
  • Built-in polemount socket

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.

Comments about Kustom PA KPC12MP 12" Powered Monitor Speaker:

Peak at 100-200 Hz and another at 4K - 6K Hz so they are good for vocals but a bit boxy sounding for music. As vocal monitors they are great.

When mounted on a speaker pole the connectors and controls are on the top so you have to lower the speakers to do setup adjustments.

    Comments about Kustom PA KPC12MP 12" Powered Monitor Speaker:

    When I got the monitor the grille had a big dent in it. As a monitor it worked great but MF replaced it without hesitation. Actually they shipped the new one to me before I could get the dented one in the mail. The new one works very well and at the sale price it is an amazing value.

        These were so underpowered that they are unusable for anything but bedroom level. Too bad because they are well built and solid.

        Comments about Kustom PA KPC12MP 12" Powered Monitor Speaker:

        It's a little larger and heavier than I probably need but I'm going to keep it anyway. Sounds great....much better than the two little Kustom 50 watt monitors that I also have. Haven't actually used it on stage in a live situation yet but it works great for rehearsals so far. Good value for the money, too. Rugged construction and good looks, too. I'm pleased to have it in my inventory of sound reinforcement stuff.

          I've owned two of the 10" 50-watt Kustom powered monitors for some time now and they've never failed me. Needed more power for our drummer's monitor and at the sale price I couldn't pass up the 12" 100-watt version. At the sale price it's a great value if you don't need to get crazy loud.

                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.
