Comments about Yamaha A12 Loudspeaker Pair:

I use these with my band ,and to practice drumming to. I love them I am super happy to own them!
I own four Yamaha A-15 ,happy with them ,I wanted to add some midrange,to the sound ,and in some cases (small space) didn't need the power and volume of 15" Stage speakers. These sound awesome ,and put out amazing volume! Great for the buck! They look great too .And you don't need a fork lift to move them! I use a Yamaha EMX 5014C Power Mixer and a crown amp.
These lack some fetures of the higher end Yamaha Stage speaker ,but if you match them up to the proper Amp /mixer and use good judgement ,these shoul serve you long and well.
For the price ,,with no sacrafice in sound ,these would be hard to beat!

Comments about Yamaha A12 Loudspeaker Pair:

Been shleping JBL15s to gigs. Too big and heavey for small gigs. These are light weight, sound great, NOT MUDDY. I use a Peavey powered mixer. I just use these for mains with 3 vocalists and a sax. Very bright, clean Yamaha sound. My last Yamahas (10s or 8s) lasted 20 years and I am still using them.

    Comments about Yamaha A12 Loudspeaker Pair:

    These Yamaha A12's have a great sound. I bought these for small venues where I don't want to haul my larger equipment. I use a Behringer iNuke NU1000 to drive them accompanied by a pair of Fender 1270P wedges. They provide plenty of sound @ a very reasonable price.

        Comments about Yamaha A12 Loudspeaker Pair:

        I normally use these Yamaha A12 speakers for smaller events I DJ or in conjunction with Yamaha A15 speakers for larger events. Two of these speakers alone will provide plenty of sound for any small to medium sized venue and can hold their own for larger events if combined with a set of larger speakers. For larger events, I normally have these speakers set up in the middle and larger speakers on the outsides. But yeah, if you're looking for a cool set of 12" speakers to get the job done, buy these! You won't regret it!

          Comments about Yamaha A12 Loudspeaker Pair:

          Bought these speakers to update my PA in my 'man cave' in the barn where I have my drums and amps for my guitars set up. Running these with a crown xls 1000 amp, they sound great.
          Shipping was fast and they arrived in perfect condition...
          One little thing that MF could feed back to Yamaha is that the stickers that Yamaha put on the grills (describing the features of the speakers) didn't come off very clean, leaving adhesive and paper remnants on the grills. Took a bit to get them properly cleaned up.

          good sound - heavier than expected

          • Clear Sound
          • Easy To Use

          Cons

          • Bulky/Heavy
          • Heavier Than Expected
          • Need Side Handles

          Best Uses

            Comments about Yamaha A12 Loudspeaker Pair:

            They are heavy - I guess that's what 34 pounds feels like; so you need really solid speaker stands. The only real problem so far is that it is hard to hoist one of these puppies onto a speaker stand that is at the height (about 5.5 feet off the floor) where we like 'em. The built-in handle is on the top, which is great for carrying but bad for hoisting - you sort of have to balance them in the air. We are going to add side handles for this maneuver. Other than that they seem very well made and good-sounding with lots of power. A great value at the MF price.

                After years of hauling the 15" (76 lb) Yamahas up and down stairs I figured time to lighten up. Glad I did. These 12's sound great for solo and small groups in medium sized venues. Clear cound, no distortion. Felt type covering also works great with velcrow (I attach set list with velcrow on back or anything else I need within reach).
