My band practices a lot, and our crappy homemade monitors weren't cutting it anymore. So I went to the local music store and picked these babies up. A great investment, indeed. I've been using them at practice and for about a dozen shows - with no problems at all.Our vocals are crisp, clear, and beautiful through these monitors. If you're serious about your sound, you have to pick a winning speaker company. And Yamaha is just that - a winner.Plus the metal grills are a necessity. You know someone will be stepping and standing on your monitors, and these grills are tough. Mine are barely even dented.Here's my one minor complaint - the plastic speaker jacks aren't ideal. But they do the job. Just double check them every now and then to make sure they're still tight.Get these monitors. The price is right, and the sound is perfect.

I have performed 200+ shows per year since 2005 with a pair of these on pole mounts and have always wondered why the Yamaha engineers put the input/output jacks on the opposite side from the pole mount. When the speaker is on a pole the mounts are on the top. This wastes three to six feet of cable and you have to be 7 feet tall to see what your doing. Other than that the damn things are great!

By Joe the sound schmoe

Comments about Yamaha BR12M 12" 2-Way Monitor:

Not the prettiest sounding monitors out there, but they get the job done. I am the tech and engineer at a night club. When it was time for new monitors I was given a very tight budget. I couldn't have gotten anything better for the money. As with almost everything else in audio you get what you pay for. If you can afford the club series, get them. If not get these.

By MentalMike

Comments about Yamaha BR12M 12" 2-Way Monitor:

We enjoy the use of these monitors and believe them to be a great deal for the price. Concert series are better but cost considerably more. The input jack being on the side opposite the pole mount is a deterant BUT how many people mount their monitors on poles anyway? We use them on the floor so this doesn't apply really to our function.We conpared them to a higher priced peavey and with eyes closed couldn't tell the differance.I like them.

Excellent Choice

Comments about Yamaha BR12M 12" 2-Way Monitor:

Versatile enough for my road trips and as near-field monitors for my mobile recording vehicle. Construction and sound quality are supurb. Also, being an old rocker-guy, they don't kill me lifting them into the Suburban for road trips.

Nice quality. Great size, weight, and value

Comments about Yamaha BR12M 12" 2-Way Monitor:

I had wanted to add some new monitors to my setup for a while, but was on a budget. I found these on sale for a great price, and had previously had good experience with Yamaha cabs at my corporate day job, so I went into a local store and compared them to others in the same price range. There was no comparison. For the money, they were far and away the best selection.I was a little concerned about using 12" monitors rather than 15's, because I didn't know if they'd be enough. I've found that exercising a little bit of control over the stage volume of your amps keeps you from having to crank the monitors, so the 12s have worked out fine. Occasionally, I've had to tweak the EQ a bit to make the high end come through, but that would be my only complaint (not that it's really a complaint -- I like more treble than a lot of guys).Nice, full sound, and they take up very little floor space. Very light and easy to handle compared to the dinosaurs I used to have. I am looking forward to buying another pair soon.

    Very Nice Monitor

    Comments about Yamaha BR12M 12" 2-Way Monitor:

    I'm the drummer in our band, and I've used this monitor several times and it works EXTREMELY well. All we did was plug it into the output of our 150WW PA speaker, and that was enough to alow me to hear our singer perfectly. Our singer also uses it and its loud enough to hear himself through all the guitars and drums. Imagine how much it could do when hooked up properly! Great monitor. Amazing Price. Must Have.

    Comments about Yamaha BR12M 12" 2-Way Monitor:

    This is easily the best deal for the money. You can spend much more on monitors, but you would be wasting your money. The fact that they are US made is sweet alone, but the real deal is they perform like BEASTS ! look at the power rating ! When was the last time you put 600 watts thru your monitor ? nothing builds touring confidence like gear that is built to last.Clear crisp highs, punchy lows, great cab., etc... Like I said...Just Buy It !!

    Used and Abused!!

    from Salt Lake City, UT

    Comments about Yamaha BR12M 12" 2-Way Monitor:

    My band and I have used these for our monitor system exclusivly for quite a while now and nothing competes!! Any venue, any application from headlining to rehearsal they just go and go no matter what you do to them. Crisp, clean great low end at all power levels and will take constant touring abuse. You would be crazy not to own these!!

    Surprising little cabs

    By Josh-gqlMO

    from The Colony, TX

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Yamaha BR12M 12" 2-Way Monitor:

    I was using these today for a kind of pep rally after a parade with about 450 people in the audience. I normally run 2 JBL dual 15 cabs running at 2400 watts and didn't expect very much from these cabs. But when I hit play on the CD player and cranked them up, I was very pleasantly surprised. The first thing that impressed me was the bass presence they had. I couldn't tell much of a difference between these 12's and some of the more expensive 15's! They had great mid?s and highs as well. As I was wheeling the PA rack (with the cabs set on top of it) away, I accidentally hit a crack and the speakers went tumbling from about 4 feet in the air. When plugged in later, the only damage was a caved in corner protector.

    very nice bass. These monitors are also great for playing music through. When I use them for live applications I get great vocal clarity. It has definitely helped my Vocal abilities.

    Great Value!

    By psalm33

    Comments about Yamaha BR12M 12" 2-Way Monitor:

    These speakers are a great value. I just purchased 2 of them and I'm very pleased so far. They sound almost identical to the C12V by Yamaha which does handle slightly higher wattage but also costs a bit more. With the punchy lows, crisp highs, and the option to use them as a floor wedge or mounted on stands as a small venue main, I give these speakers thumbs up! And don't forget the Yamaha reputation and 3 year warranty! Great value!

    By Grandpa's Revenge

    Comments about Yamaha BR12M 12" 2-Way Monitor:

    I have 4 of these. My band uses them for our monitors. They sound amazing. They are light weight and pretty rugged. Mine have been dropped and kicked over and tripped over a few times and they keep right on going. I pair them and power 2 per side of the stage with Samson SX1200 power amps in stereo mode at full power and they hold up no problem. I also use them as mains in my band's practice space and they are great for that as well. The pole mounts are a nice added extra and the handles and grill cover are good quality metal. The Frequency range is a little light, so don't expect to get a real punchy bass sound out of these because they only handle down to 65Hz. However, for a floor monitor and vocals they are great. I highly recommend them.
