    Comments about Yamaha MSR100 8" Powered Speaker:

    These are great little speakers for the price. Very nice as monitors and has complete solved the problem with the ability of our church choir to hear music. They are very easy to use and also work great if you need a carry along PA. You can just plug a microphone directly into the speaker and have a portable PA for small venues. It does not carry lows well but that is to be expected, it's not a sub. As a whole these are AWESOME!!!

      Comments about Yamaha MSR100 8" Powered Speaker:

      i was recommended two speaker stands. These speakers have no way to mount onto the stands. They have no holes in the bottom of the speakers. Now I have two speakers on the floor and two speaker stands that don't hold anything. But the speakers sound great.

      Comments about Yamaha MSR100 8" Powered Speaker:

      Good sound for a small box, surprising low end. I own several of these speakers, there great for small monitor, small venue mains. The only issue I have ever had is the line out is very noisy. Easy solution; simply wye the input.

      Comments about Yamaha MSR100 8" Powered Speaker:

      I am in the process of starting a small sound company. I currently own two Yamaha DXR8 and one DXS12 sub. These speakers are amazing. In trying to keep with my ultra compact system design, I decided to try out the MSR100 for monitor use. Being another Yamaha product, I thought it would be perfect. But, much to my surprise, the volume output is lacking. I tried it out in my basement with my acoustic guitar and a vocal mic. I cranked it up to 3 oclock position on both the master and xlr input. Even with that, and the mixer pretty well cranked, it just wasn't loud enough. I typically run sound for classic rock bands and these wouldn't even come close to being heard over a guitar amp. Overall, if you are a single performer in a coffee shop setting, I would highly recommend them for their light weight and versatility. But for a loud band, look for something with more than 100 watts. I am sadly returning it, and replacing it with an EV ZLX12P. A little bigger / heavier than I wanted, but I know it will cut the mustard.

      Powered speaker has it all under one shell. Crisp sound, ease of set up for non professional. Hooking up to mic and Kindle for practice vocal sessions. Paired with mic stand, all ready to jam, join a group or even start one! dc

        Comments about Yamaha MSR100 8" Powered Speaker:

        I've had this for several years. I bought it for using as a monitor in a small acoustic trio that I performed with. It worked great. Now I use it in small wine shop solo performances. My son fried my 12" QSC the other night and I had a gig at a somewhat larger venue and my yamaha was my only option. It performed very nicely. The bass response is very good. I'm betting you could use this as a guitar amp and would be very pleased with it. I do vocals and guitar it had a very nice balance to it.
        Of all the equipment I've had throughout the years this is one that I've always refused to sell because of the versatility. I would be tempted to not replace my QSC and just buy another one of these for use for small stereo setup.

          Wow! Fantastic, clear sound that you would not expect from an 8-inch speaker. It is also impressively surprising how much sound they can put out. I almost spent the extra money to get the 10" model, but I'm glad I didn't. Having this much sound in such a mobile, lightweight package is great.

          Works Perfect! Good amount of power! Little weight!...(i'm tired of carrying a truckload of stuff!),
          Not real expensive.....blows away behringer!
          I just got this little Yamaha, and it is absolutely great! Perfect for a small venue (I play in smaller restaurants, churches, & nursing homes). Sounds great, easy to carry, not expensive! I did buy the speaker stand mount (about $20) which you'll need to put it on a stand,,,,and I also use my TC Helicon Create to add some reverb (this little Yamaha is completely dry,,,,so you may want to add something to it like reverb), but I can't think of a better unit to use for this application.
          Great Quality! Very Solid!
          Super deal!

          Near Perfection

          By shimmer-N-Qt-

          from Atlanta

          Comments about Yamaha MSR100 8" Powered Speaker:

          Yes I?m in a dreaded wedding band. We purchased these to replace passive monitors powered by QSC 1400s.With these we saved weigh, set up time and hassle. The performance has been OUTSTANDING. My vocalist who where always wanting more volume are now happy, and without pushing the feedback threshold I?m happy too as bassist & soundman. I only wish they had a balanced XKS thru then they would be a 5.0 across the board for us.
