OVERVIEW

Hear yourself in the loudest bands without spending a fortune.

The Kustom KPC15MP is a 100W powered monitor speaker with an angled wedge design, a 15" Kustom-built loudspeaker and a piezo HF driver. The monitor is tuned to deliver rich, balanced tonality while accurately reproducing a wide variety of audio content.

The Kustom KPC15MP 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 speaker's volume control adjusts the overall level.

A TRS 1/4" line out jack may be used to daisy chain 2 or more KPC speakers for a wider dispersion of sound. For example, if a non-powered audio mixer has been connected to the Kustom 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 KPC15MP for use as a powered PA speaker.

Since its inception in 1966, Kustom has produced high-quality, affordable PA products, and the KPC15MP monitor speaker continues that tradition.

FEATURES
  • One 100-watt, Class AB, built-in power amplifier with current-limited protection circuitry
  • One 15', Kustom-built PA Speaker
  • One piezo horn with wide dispersion flare
  • Angled, wedge-shaped design
  • One balanced XLR input jack

I bought this to monitor my solo gigs. I have the unpowered version for my mains which I use with my 200 watt Yahama powered mixer. I play guitar and sing and the sound from this is very natural and full. It sounds just like my mains, except I can control the volume and hear my guitar and vocals clearly. I also have the option of having an extra 100 watts rms if I need to use it for a main. For smaller shows, I use this with a berhinger unpowered mixer and it sounds great with lots of power. It is a little heavy, but I believe you have to pump some air to get good sound and this baby is a mover. I added some small casters, and I can roll it with ease anywhere, except up steps!

I bought these because, obviously, I wanted some powered monitors that were inexpensive. However I learned (once again) that sometimes inexpensive isn't good enough. I cut corners on sound quality thinking that the band members would be the only ones hearing the monitors. However, I discovered I had bought heavy, bulky monitors that took up a lot of space in my vehicle and on stage, but couldn't be clearly heard. The sound quality is muddy, not crisp, and because there is no EQ, I couldn't turn it up to a loud volume without getting feedback. If I had a do-over, I would have tried the Behringers instead, since they have more power and an EQ. As it is the monitors aren't good enough to warrant the trouble of hauling them around.

Fortunately my new rhythm guitarist has some good JBL monitors--so I won't have have to bother moving them again until I trade them in at my local music shop for something I can use. My recommendation is to spend a little more, and get something that's more powerful, less bulky, and/or more flexible.

        Solid build, great sounding monitor for usage during gigs. Makes all the difference in the world being able to actually hear the rest of the band. Easy to use.

          Where can you find a 15" powered monitor for this price shipped to your front door? Right here! They work great as monitors and they even have pole mounts to use as mains. The sound is very good.

              I use my Tapco MIX-100 mixer with this. Plenty loud and perfectly acceptable sound as a PA for friendly jams and low volume gigs, monitoring studio. Convenient.
              Is there better out there? Of course. Do you need better? Only if you gig regularily at larger louder venues.

                  We have 3 of these in our band for onstage monitors. They sound great, seem to be rugged enough and the price is really hard to beat! We will be ordering 2 more. Time will tell if they perform as well over time but we are very happy with them so far!

                  Wow! We can now hear each other! We don't have many musical instruments in our group, but the number of instruments is growing. The monitors are a must!! We first used them in practice, and they don't lie. They tell the truth. With that said, they help with voice quality as we have four voices in our group, as well as timing. We used them later in a music ministry outreach, and they provided instantaneous feedback leading to a better sound. We have only had them one week, but plan to get alot of use from them. Based on their limited use so far, I would recommend them to any group. We are very happy with them so far.

                  Comments about Kustom PA KPC15MP 15" Powered Monitor Speaker:

                  Fired up the Kustom KPC15MP monitor for the first time yesterday. Used it exclusively (no mains) for vocals at a practice of our classic rock band. Easy to set up, excellent tone quality, plenty of volume with no distortion. Nice option of XRL or quarter-inch plugs, daisy-chain option, too. Sturdy construction, could use as a main in a pinch (has stand-mounting option). Looking forward to our first gig with it this weekend.
