It also features two parallel input jacks, sturdy construction with reinforced corners, and a heavy-duty Tolex covering.

    Having worked on these cabs I can say that the construction isn't too bad- they are braced internally. The only thing I don't like is that the baffle is only 5/16" thick! They hold up fairly well as long as care is taken with their use.
    I have owned and have been using a pair of Kustom KPC15's for awhile now and have had some very satisfactory results but i have decided to do some modifications to them. First off, the horn has 1 3/8" by 18 t.p.i. threads so the cheap piezo driver can easily be unscrewed and a 1" titanium compression driver can easily be installed to dramatically improve midrange/high frequency performance. Also, it would be beneficial to remove the poly-fill batting from the cab and replace it with convuluted urethane foam. Simply measure the internal dimensions of the cab and cut pieces and use spray adhesive to attach them to the inside of the cab. Probably the weakest link in the design of these cabs is the crossover. Simply purchase quality 2-way crossovers such as Dayton brand, making sure to select the crossover frequency that is best suited for your selected compression driver. The original Kustom woofer has a very low excursion (the cone barely moves) and that is also a downfall but i have been able to achieve decent bass response with them. I have used QSC GX3 and GX5 amps to drive them with both recorded music and live music and they sound repectable as long as they are driven within their rated bandwidth and power. I have completed modifications on these tonight and I am going to try them out at a gig this coming weekend to see how they have improved. Overall, these are fairly good speakers IF you are not running bass guitar and kick drum through them.
    Not the worst cabs in the world, but the tweeters are cheap and the woofers don't push a lot of air. Still they seem to perform surprisingly well and are very efficient (loud).

    The one big problem I have with this speaker is the Kustom logo sticker on the front. For some reason, on one of my speakers, the glue didn't hold. An end came loose and snagged when I moved the speaker, pulling it off. It left an ugly glue residue on the grill cover. I contacted Kustom. They would only send a new logo sticker if I sent them the old one, which I did. I got the new sticker and it's the same problem. It just won't stick. I used it's own self-adhesive, super glue, even hot glue. I even taped it down with professional gaffer tape - and that wouldn't hold! This might seem like a small thing, but I try to present a professional image onstage, and I can't use this speaker in it's current condition. Aside from the cosmetic issue, it's a terrible place for a logo - right in front of the 15" speaker. A stupid piece of design ruined an otherwise good speaker

        This Speaker cabinet is durable and sounds good. Iv'e been using a pair of them for "Mids" and "Highs" in a four piece "Classic Rock" Band in small to medium bars with a powered mixer. Sure, you can spend more, and get more. But if your looking for a solid, clean speaker cab. You can't beat this one for the money.

          My band is using the KPC 15's for four-piece vocals, they sound great all around. They are small and light, but pack a big punch. Great clarity.

            This makes the 6th set of Kustom speakers I have bought down through the years and they are all still working fine. If you are on a budget these are the way to go.

              We're using the speakers only for vocals, nothing else going through them at this time. Vocals sound very good, for the money they surprised us. No complaints.

                I bought these last month because they function with 100 watts and deliver 97dB. I use a 2x200 watt power mixer with these two 15" and two 10" Kustoms as monitors. I've used half the set-up (1-15" and 1-10") inside for two gigs and the whole set-up outside for over 150 people and they sound great. Other 15's required more wattage etc. These are plenty loud with no distortion.

                  I needed some clarity in my PA and these have that to spare. They are durable but lightweight and have regular quarter inch inputs. For my money these are the speakers for a musician on a tight budget, and please point to the ones who aren't these days.

                      This speaker should not be sold!!....The RMS Rating is actually 125 watts. If you connect this speaker to ANY reasonable amplifier you will start clipping as soon as you turn up the volume knob past 2. For the size of this speaker you would think that it could perform alot better than advertised,don't be fooled!! The speaker is also cheaply built with plastic corners and pole mount,corners came broken from UPS(shipping).

                      Been using KUSTOM equipment for more than 40 years. You definitely get the most for your money, with KUSTOM. The packing has gone, sub par, lately which has resulted in damaged corners, during shipping. These parts are only available through KUSTOM, at your expense, although Musicians Friend did compensate for this with a "store credit".

                            Upon hooking up my new Kustom KPC15's, one of the cabinets rattled with heavier bass sounds. I have been purchasing Kustom cabinets for years and have had problems with this in the past. MF replaced the item right away, however. They always stand behind what they sell.
                            Overall, you can't beat the sound of these cabinets for the price, even if Kustom should have a better quality control department.
