OVERVIEW

Active PA speakers with Bluetooth connectivity.

The HPS Series loudspeakers are Gemini's most powerful ABS speakers to date. Featuring Gemini’s newest audio processing technology built into a 1000-watt class D amplifier, the HPS Series offers high quality sound at an affordable price. Recreating your sound efficiently is the HPS Series specialty. 


The transducers are articulate and responsive to the subtle and dynamic changes in your performance. The two-way speaker is composed of a large low frequency woofer and powerful voice coil needed to push the low frequencies around the room. The tweeter is a pure titanium compression driver with a wide dispersion horn for airy and detailed highs even at large distances or angles from the speaker.

The HPS Series loudspeakers are built like a tank, the ABS nylon fiber cabinet are strong and durable in the face of continual use and abuse. Each cabinet also has multiple handles carrying and options for hanging or stand mounting.

Bluetooth wireless connectivity and a USB/SD MP3 Player are directly built into the HPS-12BLU so that you have options for track playback and connectivity. With the option of Bluetooth you can play tracks directly from a Bluetooth enabled device and roam around the room as you please.

I use it for my 24inch bass drum to mike the port and use the #2 channel to mike the snare. It gives a lot of bottom without rattle. I have 2 other sets of speakers, I use with a mixer. I stack the 2 speakers and does nice job. I got this to cut down on size and keep from carrying 2 speakers and mixer and 2 speaker cables to connect the speakers. This does a nice job and sounds good on the floor beside the drums. I can only turn the volume level on channel 1 to 12 o'clock position before feeds back. I set lows all way clockwise and highs all way counter clockwise. It does a nice job with adding body. I use E mad 2 batter head with wide muffle foam ring on my 24 inch bass drum head. Channel 2 is not as loud as channel 1 but it is sufficient for snare drum. My bass man plugged into this amp and could not believe the bottom he got from it. One thing set the speaker on carpet or mat or it will walk backwards when using. It really kicks out a lot of air from the top ports. It moved a foot on me last week and the wall stopped it or it would have kept on going. The blue tooth and card and usb slots are an added feature.

I bought a pair of these for my home practice space. Not needing road usable gear just enough to clearly hear myself and the music in in a small space. If they worked right this might be a good choice for budget and small space use .

out of the pair one worked fine the other worked ok but the bluetooth didnt work. so i called to get a replacement . they sent me return shipping very fast. but since i used paypal to pay i ended up having to buy a third speaker and wait for a refund from paypal.
the third speaker came in a few days.
got the third speaker plugged it in a high pitch scream came from from the tweeter yay oh and the bluetooth yeah that didnt work either.
so out of 3 speakers one worked 2 did not. So at this point I have one random speaker so much for the pair idea.
if you like those odds or just enjoy your local ups office they might be for you.

    Comments about Gemini HPS-12BLU 12" D-Class Powered Speaker with Bluetooth:

    I'm pleasantly surprised at the nice clear sound. I've had them a short time, and have only used them about four times, but they perform quite well for the money. They're lighter than I expected but deliver a nice punch.

    The only thing I dislike is that the USB and SD card functions don't give you a visual interface, so you can't really navigate folders or pick tracks with any precision, but that's pretty easy to work around.

    Unfortunately, this is not what I need for vocal/music entertainment. This is recommended for public speaking venues, small venues. But musicians should go for the higher end speaker.

      Comments about Gemini HPS-12BLU 12" D-Class Powered Speaker with Bluetooth:

      I actually bought the prior version which is the HPS-12P, but it has everything the HPS-12BLU has except the Bluetooth capability. I have a stage in my house and I have these mounted for FOH use. They work great and for this situation these speakers provide plenty of clear SPL.

      Comments about Gemini HPS-12BLU 12" D-Class Powered Speaker with Bluetooth:

      I've had great experience with Gemini HPS series. But these disappointed me. One speaker is louder/clearer than the other. To get the same level and clarity I have to give the other one at least 2 notches more on the volume and EQ highs. Don't know why 2 identical speakers have different sound quality. Seems like something is different with the amp controls.

          Comments about Gemini HPS-12BLU 12" D-Class Powered Speaker with Bluetooth:

          Used these speakers twice now for karaoke, one in the air and one as a monitor. For the price point, they are nice. The one venue which is somewhat large, they are a bit under powered. However, the other medium sized/small venue I used them at, they worked great. The case does seem a little cheap, meaning it seems like it could break/crack somewhat easily, so use caution in hauling. But all in all for the money (got them on SDOTD), I'm pleased. Can't expect top quality in this price range, so be mindful in what you'll be using them for.

                            Picked this up as a practice/rehearsal speaker for my three piece acoustic band. Haven't had a chance to push it yet, but sounds great with acoustic bass guitar, vocals, and some mp3s to play along with. Planning on bringing to gigs to use as a bass amp or a back-up monitor/PA for smaller gigs.
