I've been using 2 Yamaha A12's with my classic rock band for about 4 months (15 gigs). We play at small venues. We are not considered a loud band.I picked them because I was looking for something inexpensive and light weight. So far they are performing very well. We only put our voices through the PA. No instruments. The PA head is a Yorkville, 400 watts. The vocals sound very clean and I don't think speakers costing a few hundred dollars more would be all that better.If I had to do it over again, I'd buy them again.

I've used these speakers now for a little over one year, and they have not let me down yet. Yamaha quality is bullet-proof and these speakers prove that point. They are solid and put out a lot of sound for their size. You will need a sub if your working a large room and want big bass. I was tired of lugging around large overweight speakers. These speakers do the job. Enough said!

Disapointed

Had to wire in a different Jack for ease of installation in the peak of a Church and was disapointed at the small gage of wire used inside.

Can take it

Comments about Yamaha A12 12 in. 2-Way Passive Loudspeaker:

I've been using these for gigging for a couple of years now. They sound great and can handle a lot of power. This is apparent when someone accidentally causes some Microphone feedback. You can go deaf before you will blow a speaker. After two years on the road they still look relatively new.

Not Bad!

Comments about Yamaha A12 12 in. 2-Way Passive Loudspeaker:

Nice little speaker. Light weight and looks good. Im not sure why a company that makes good quality products would put a big sticker on the grille. It doesnt just come off. You have to take the grille of and peel and rub. Overall its worth it. Yamaha!

    I just got these today and plan to use them for my five piece classic rock band's gig this weekend. I bought them as an upgrade for my Behringer VS 1220s and am very pleased.

    Comments about Yamaha A12 12 in. 2-Way Passive Loudspeaker:

    I love these speakers, powering them with an early 90's Carvin MX842 mixer amp. But... as far as removing the heavy sticker that comes on the grille, all you have to do is to heat the sticker a bit with either a hair dryer, or a heat gun. The sticker will peel off in one piece like magic, dooh.

    Comments about Yamaha A12 12 in. 2-Way Passive Loudspeaker:

    I ordered these factory reconditioned speakers. Guess I was expecting that they would be 100% reconditioned both functionality-wise AND cosmetically. They arivved with both metal grills dented in significantly. I can perhaps straighten them out, however, don't feel I should have to do this! Also, they are not really clear so still in process of deciding whether to send them back and go through that whole thing or not. Also, they seem very middy and do not put out much lower-end frequency, whcih unfortunately leads me to believe these speakers may not have been as reconditioned or thoroughly tested as they may have been. In all fairness, its only speculation at this point, however, i just bought a brand new EQ and still can't get punchy lows from these cabinets! The verdict is not quite in yet, however, the performance is not what i expected.

      A good value. These provide clear, clean sound. I have played canned music, vocals and an acoustic guitar through it and it handles it all.

        I have used various Yamaha speakers for the last 10 or 12 years playing out. These 12" mains are what I expected from Yamaha - quality. Well worth the price. I bought them to use in my music practice room with a powered mixer,and they work quite well. They have a good crisp,full sound and are lightweight. I may take them out on smaller gigs but have not yet.

        Comments about Yamaha A12 12 in. 2-Way Passive Loudspeaker:

        The A12 Yamaha Speakers are great. You can feel the quality just taking them out of the box. They play a bit flat and boomy so an equalizer is most likely needed. They sound great with a little tweaking. They have a sticker on the grille when you get them. You have to remove the grills to get the large stickers off. I took about an hour of tedious picking. All in all I would recommend these speakers.
