A12M Monitor

By Bzz

from Minnesota

See all my reviews

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

These are great sounding monitors. Very clean high quality construction. We were using Mackie and EV and these are much better suited for floor monitoring. We use 4 for a 5 pc vocal band.These can be hooked up in parallel. Run a speakon into one speaker from the power amp and connect from the 1/4 jack output to the other speakers 1/4 jack output plug with 1/4" plug speaker cable.

Yamaha's Best

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

I just bought these being an active sound guy and needed new mons...I've worked with people who bring on stack amps and everything...we've run just about everything imaginable through these and they absolutely put up with it never a problem I've worked with BR12m's as well and I'd pick these over them...I took out the 1/4" connector and replaced it with another speakon and that added to the quality definitely worth every penny

Another Great Yamaha Product!

By Bob Cross

from Virginia Beach, VA

See all my reviews

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

Yamaha has been a great company in all the musical equipment they put on the market. From their drums, to mixers, and now cabinets, they continue to impress. If you can't A/B these against other wedges, Yamaha is a safe bet to knowing you are getting what you paid for, and as a pleasant suprise, more.
Purchased over 2 years ago, and still love them. I power them with a Crown 402 amp providing a thick, full sound and great highs. Using an DriveRack (ring out and feed-back suppression) really allows me to boost the volume to a point where the folks on stage tell me to turn them down. How often does that happen.....

Price, light weight, clean good looks, great sound, what else could you ask for....
Great build quality, finish is clean, they just feel real solid when moving them around.
For the build quality, sound and appearance, I have yet to find a better product for twice the price.

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

We got the for our Church as additional monitors
to go with 6 Peavey Unity 1-12 monitors that
we already had on stage. These monitors had to
be pushed a little harder than the Peavey ones
to get the same sound so I ended up putting them
at the front of the stage on their own mix send.
That worked out better anyway because they don't
have a parallel output and have to either have their own feed or be at the end of the chain.
They do have both a 1/4" phone jack and a
speakon jack so you could use an adapter on
the speakon jack and daisey chain out of it.
These monitors have a good full sound if they
are pushed with enough power and sould better
if you are a little far from them which makes
it good for a stand up vocalist.

Excellent Monitor

By GytrPlyr

from South Georgia

See all my reviews

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

I shopped everything under $300 and there is nothing out there that is even close to the sound/quality of this Yamaha monitor. I share the stage with guitarists using Peavey and Sampson monitors. My Yamaha performs as well or better and was much less expensive. The only caution I would give is that there is no parallel 1/4 jack to daisy chain. I have to be at the end of the signal chain off the board. This is not a big deal to me but if you plan on using several of these on stage you should be aware. I strongly recommend this monitor and suggest you pick one up while the price is still low. You won't get a better monitor for anywhere near this price.

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

    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!

    ordering another

    By b2

    from Jacksonville, FL

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

    Use it along with a pair of 15" Yamahas for solo/ duo acoustic gigs up to 4 times a week. Awesome clarity and very rugged. Am ordering a second one because they are so versitile, can be used as mains for small restraunt/ bar gigs and as monitors for the bigger set ups. I'd take one of these on a stand and one on the floor over a BOSE any time, especially if you're on a budget but don't want to skimp on quality

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

    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.

    Great Monitors

    By Jay-siBFU

    from St. Louis

    See all my reviews

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

    I play out as a solo act and this monitor works great for me. I own a EMX Yamaha PA with 15" Yamaha speakers so I wanted to match what I already had. You can't go wrong with Yamaha. The reason I gave it a 4.5 on features is you have to buy a Y-connector if you want to daisy chain them. (as noted by another reviewer) But I don't daisy chain and Yamaha is my system. (Until I can afford Bose)

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

      These things are solid and will survive several gigs. I have (3) of them. Construction is good. To types of inputs (speakon and 1/4" standard) but now out put to make daisy chaining easier. Buy a "Y" splitter that has 2 Female ends and 1 male end if you plan on daisy chaining these across the front of the stage.

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

      we've been using these for a little over two years and 6 months. Never a problem one. we use for our own band that plays out 3-4 times a month and for weekly practices (sometimes more). We also run sound for local shows (some really loud). Some of the groups bring a stage full of Orange/Boogie/Marshal stacks, and these have always keep the vocals up. Recently got a set of Yamaha SM10 which are good monitors but if I were to make a new purchase again, well good for the A12's.

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

      How can you not love this classic? It's my fourth one and a staple of every band I've been in. The only drawback is that unlike other monitors, it has only one quarter inch jack and one speakon connector. Minor issue, but most club P.A.'s use monitors wired in series. Otherwise, this is your basic Yamaha excellence in sound.

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

        I love these monitors and wish I could afford them. Our school has 4 of these, looking to get 2 more. We use them for everything. Monitors backstage, floor monitors for gigs inside and outside, outside PA speakers, and recording. they sound great and can take a beating. I've dragged, pushed, dropped kicked, and rolled these speakers, and nothing seems to break them or affect the sound. I used EV speakers at University of Illinois that were 15" and these blew them away. Personally, I own a set of 15" Kustoms because I can't afford these. If you have the money, these are the best your going to find. If you dont, 15" Kustoms will get the job done, while you pick up a second job so you can pay for these incredible speakers.
