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).

I bought two of these. They didn't quite match as if one was put together by a sloppy worker. They barely hold a bass, rattle on low notes. On looking inside the cabinets appear to be made of low grade press board and scrap wood. I had to re glue a lot of areas and will probably have to replace both speakers. The horns and handles are very cheap plastic. I can't believe that anyone would have anything good to say about these. The tolex covering is thin and rips easily.Very poor quality.

    A respectable speaker!

    Comments about Kustom PA KPC15 15" PA Speaker Cabinet with Horn:

    I recently purchased a pair of these Kustom speakers to be used exclusively for DJing/recorded music playback. They arrived in great condition. The cabs are constructed very well (good fit/finish). The metal grills are adequate, but could be more solid and the handles seem strong enough. I may replace the plastic corner protectors with metal ones and also place metal washers on the 1/4" jacks. The speakers sound quite nice, especially connected to a BBE Sonic Maximizer. I haven't tested them at a room-filling volume yet, but i am powering them with a QSC GX3 amp which should be the perfect power match for these. Time will tell how well the piezo horns will hold up though (Kustom does say that they are overload protected, however). I would suggest using a compressor/limiter when driving these to loud levels- that should also protect the horns. Overall a nice speaker for the price. With some degree of care, these should last quite a while and they do have a 3 year warranty. The pictures of the jack plate on this site show the power ratings as 100watts RMS/200 watts program, but mine show 125 watts RMS/ 250 watts program. I believe that the KPC's have been upgraded from the previous offerings. As with any loudspeakers, it is always better to use an amplifier with twice the RMS wattage value of the speaker's- underpowering is worse, causing voice coil heat and break-up! If you're budget restricted, then these speakers are a very good deal.

    Comments about Kustom PA KPC15 15" PA Speaker Cabinet with Horn:

    This is an update to a previous review that I wrote. A few weeks ago i took these Kustom cabs to a gig where i ran ALL instruments through our system and out to the Kustoms. It was a mid-size bar with low ceilings. I placed the kustoms on stands with the horns at about 6 feet from the floor. I set my amp gains half-way up (QSC GX3) and the mixer's output to peak at around 4db. The sound was punchy, clear, and very dynamic! I was really very surprised! At these settings there was more than enough output to fill the entire room without irritating anyone. I received many compliments on our sound that night and i don't regret using the Kustoms. I almost opted for my friends old "tried and true" Peavey cabs but I thought they would be overkill for this venue, not to mention way heavier/larger! I needed to cut some midrange frequencies quite a bit, but with some patient tweaking I was able to get really good results. I was also very happy with the bass output, although I beleive that the x-max/excursion of these 15's aren't too great- so cut the 30-50Hz freq's and you'll be good to go!I am very pleased with these and very shocked that they held-up well to an entire band for 4 hours!

        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.

          I purchased a pair of these to go with my Kustom KPC 10M monitors. Have used them several times with great success. I used them for a Halloween party the other day. All the bands were amazed by the sound! Everyone at the party loved the sound. No one could believe the price. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to get into live music and needing speakers that won't break the bank.

          Comments about Kustom PA KPC15 15" PA Speaker Cabinet with Horn:

          .
          I was planning a annual Jam session at my home and pulled out the trusty Pa system and dusted off the cobwebs just to find that one of the woofer speaker coils was bad .I ran to the computer to look for a replacement speaker to match the bad one.I proceeded to let my fingers do the walking and to my amazement could not find a replacement speaker that I felt could do the job. I thought it possible to find two speakers that fit my budjet, so I found two KPC's that looked to be a good match. I ordered two speakers, they were promptly sent and received in plenty of time to meet my schedule. I was total impressed with the construction of the boxes and pleased with the sound and would recomend them to any one . Thanks again the saxman

          I've had these speakers for years with no trouble. There not your Yamaha's or Peavy's but they have a surprisingly great sound. Great lows for dance DJ'ing and nice clearity for speaking.
          These speakers are build like a tank. Very Sturdy for moving around a lot.
          Buy them while they are a real bargin. I bought 4.

          By Don Bordwell

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Kustom PA KPC15 15" PA Speaker Cabinet with Horn:

          I rigid mounted a set of these in the ceiling of our sanctuary at church. We seat about 250 with a 14 foot ceiling. I was very skeptical because of the price, but had played a gig where a guy was using a set outdoors and was pretty impressed to I ordered them....WOW! All these comments are tempered by the fact that they were a great price--they carry very reasonable low end, but the vocals sound quite good in the horns. They aren't terribly heavy comparatively, which was a plus when ceiling mounting them. I'm pushing them with one side of an American Audio 600 watt amp, and at about half power they will run you out of the place. I'm going to order another set for my band to use as road speakers.
          Yes I've heard 15" PA speakers that sounded better, but not within 4 times the cost.
          wish they had binder post connections along with the 1/4" inch. All appointments were satisfactory, and the grills actually look very nice.

            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.

                  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).

The horns really bring out the high end and the 15" have all the bottom you need. I even play my bass in the studio thru them and they sound GREAT!
