    Comments about Alto TX12 12" Active Loudspeaker:

    I own a small nightclub and needed replacement monitors for the DJ booth so I picked up a pair of these. They do the job and I am overall happy with them. They have good inputs for several types of cables, easy to use, and lightweight to move around the stage.
    They arent without their issues though. There is almost no bass in these and they sound tin-ey, so if you are using them for music, you will definitely need a sub. They also start breaking up at about half volume, Not terribly at first, but you'll never reach 3/4 volume on these.
    Overall they are good for what I need them for as the house system provides the bass the dj's need. I could see them being good for presentations and banquets so long as you ran everything through a mixing board so you could EQ. If you are looking for powered speakers that will be your only speakers for music, spend a bit more and get something else.

        Comments about Alto TX12 12" Active Loudspeaker:

        The TX 12 is overall a great value, but there are just a couple of issues I found in comparison to the TX 8 and TX 10 Speakers. (yes we have all Three) the input is Just a 1/4" jack rather than XLR on the other models so it's wise to grab an Adapter (1/4 to XLR female) if your used to XLR or perhaps a 1/4 to XLR Cable. The second issue is the "Contour" Button. It easily disengages with the Bass reflex. I would recommend a piece of tape over it to keep it in place if so desired to use it. Other than that, it's a great LOUD speaker with limited Bass, so use a preset EQ from your Mixer or increase the bass in your computer settings.

          Comments about Alto TX12 12" Active Loudspeaker:

          I bought a pair of these to use as practice speakers; they work perfectly for that and also found they are great as as stage monitors. The only drawback, if you want to call it that, is since they don't have onboard EQ you need an external EQ device to get the best sound quality out of them. Since we run through a mixer we don't have that problem. Otherwise these are probably the best speakers I've seen at this price.
