    I bought two of these a year ago. Very light, handles lots of power and the horn has not given me any trouble. I just bought two more.

      Can't beat the price ! Only draw back is you can't loop the two together ! I got around it with a splitter on the monitor out on my Yamaha EMX 512 SC PA head !

        Comments about Yamaha A12M 12" 2-Way Floor Monitor:

        Hey, this is my very first monitor as someone else has always provided me with one. Or, due to standing in front of my speakers, I never actually needed on. But decided it was time to be more independent. Nice choice! This unit puts out a crystal clear reproduction being powered by my new Crown X1000 amp. It is attractive and adds to the ambiance of my professional stage equipment.
        Also using my very first SpeakOn cable connection with this unit. Easy to use.

          Needed a good quality passive monitor for stage performance. Was using a cheaper monitor but the horn kept blowing so I upgraded and am very happy.

            Comments about Yamaha A12M 12" 2-Way Floor Monitor:

            Bought these monitors to replace two that I had blown out at a previous gig. I have to pack a lot of gear into my car, so I didn't want 15s. My previous monitors were actually 10", which are almost impossible to find, and are only good for very small venues. These Yamahas could also be used for mains at a small venue, but I haven't tried that as yet. So far, they are great for the price.

              These sound nice and are very light. I use them as mains. Hey, at 300 watts they handle more than the maians I used for years and those were as heavey as boulders.
              I think any band will like these.

                I recently upgraded from the Kustom wedges that were the same size (12"). The clarity and sound accuracy is so much better with these Yamahas. I've only used them twice, so I cannot yet comment on the durability, but they seem to be built tough.

                  The Captain Ledge Band is all acoustic and we run a Mandolin, Bass and Guitar all direct into the board then through the monitor system. The overall sound of the A12M's onstage is outstanding. The percussionist in our band gets plenty of volume to over ride his conga's and the bass through these is incredibly accurate. We've tried other monitors onstage with our Yamaha's as well as having experience with other monitor systems. We almost hate to use anything else because our monitor system is that much superior to anything else we use. It just gets an incredible sound. Buy these monitors!

                  I have a set of these wedges and hope to get more whenever they are on sale. These little boxes are great for sections and players where a small yet powerful monitor wedge is needed. I also sometimes use these on sticks as mains for speeches or the famous "cooking stage" at festivals.
