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.

    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'm really bummed at how bad this monitor sounds. It is cheap and it sounds it.I bought this after reading a bunch of really good reviews for the 12" model. I figured that since I play bass it would be a good idea to try out the 15". When not used for performance, I figured I could use it as a simple low volume practice amp. Boy was I disappointed. This requires significant EQ in order to sound halfway decent and there is no low end at all. And it's big. The only reason to lug around a 15" beast of a speaker is to get a nice round sound. You do not get that with this. The when the EQ is flat, the sound is thin and tinny. Boosting the lows and mids creates significant clipping even at low volume.I will be returning this.Kustom KPC15MP 15" Powered Monitor Speaker

        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!

        Comments about Kustom PA KPC15MP 15" Powered Monitor Speaker:

        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.

        KPC15MP powered monitor

        By Jim Davis

        from Chicago suburbs

        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.

        Comments about Kustom PA KPC15MP 15" Powered Monitor Speaker:

        After a few weeks and gigs with these speakers i can say they will certainly cope with the daily gigging. Plenty loud and solid.Specifically wanted to state that Kustom's customer service was very helpful in answering my inquiries about replacement parts. they provided me driver thiel/small specs and pricing for replacing the drivers. Though they only keep a small amount in stock for warranty purposes it can be ordered and these are NOT discontinued per customer service. I specifically researched this information because hey as we all know, after a warranty expires or product is discontinued, its either fix or replace the equipment if parts are scarce. Judging by the speaker specs there are plenty of third party replacement parts that will keep these speakers alive for years to come. Don't hesitate if your on a budget, I now have three of these for my PA rig. I think it was well worth the investment.

        Just an update

        Comments about Kustom PA KPC15MP 15" Powered Monitor Speaker:

        ok, so i was on vacation when i bought this monitor/ pa, and i diddnt have the proper equipment to fully test it. now after playing with it quite a bit now, i plan on ordering another. the bass is not over powering, and man is it loud. is has a great natural tone with plugging a guitar right into it. but i intend on using it as mains or for dj/parties. for playing music it sounds great, just make sure that it isn't pointing to the crowds ears... because they might bleed. over all. great for any use. 3 on features because it is nothing fancy. no eq but does have xlr, 1/4 in, and a 1/4 out. but no built in eq like some similar products.

        awesome for mains and monitors

        By colby-EazSB

        from georgia

        Comments about Kustom PA KPC15MP 15" Powered Monitor Speaker:

        my band has two of these for mains on stands, and two on the floor as monitors. and i i gotta say that they do everything we want and need them to...they will fill a small to medium gig inside and outside easily. but EQ them for mids and highs. buy a powered sub for your lows and you will be so happy...and the price?...oh yeah!

        id buy another

        Comments about Kustom PA KPC15MP 15" Powered Monitor Speaker:

        like the other review said, it is lacking in the low end. the specs say it gets 45hz but the box clearly says 60hz. complete bs. i gav it a 3.0 for features b/c it has xlr, 1/4, and a volume nob. lol. but no eq. it has good tone if your using it for guitar. even with no amp, just the guitar straight to the monitor. the volume output is lacking a bit, but the may be my mini amps fault. so im ordering a headphone amp, just out of curiosity. i gave it a 4.0 for quality b/c the cabinet is built solid like all kustom products i own, but is is lacking in the low end unfortunately. but for this price you can buy a separate sub woofer. the good thing is that this can double as a pa speaker. it is the same thing as the kpc15. the only difference is the shape of the cab. over all i would buy another one if need more volume, ill be buying a separate sub woofer as i am using this a pa speaker.

        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.
