OVERVIEW

(Open Box) 2-way professional speaker with USB and SD media player.

Gem Sound's PBX120USB is a 2-way professional speaker, with a trapezoidal ABS impact-resistent design. The lightweight system has a powerful 12" woofer and a wide dispersion horn. capable of 800W peak and 200W RMS. On the backside you'll find plenty of input and outputs including XLR and 6.35mm jack for Mic 1, and XLR and 3.5mmline in for connecting your media devices, as well as an XLR line out to attach to another active speaker. You can control tone level for high and low frequency at ranges +12dB, as well control the volume for mic 1, and your other media devices running through the line in jacks. The PBX120USB comes with a remote control.

The manufacturer's packaging incorrectly states this item has wheels integrated into the design. Because of its lightweight and portable size the PXB120USB does not have built-in wheels.

I purchased this speaker to communicate to my students at my advanced motorcycle riding school. I mount it on a cart with a Honda generator for power. I needed enough volume to give instructions to the riders while both the students and myself are riding. The students are at times 150 ft away in a large parking lot. I mainly chose this speaker because it had to fit on the cart that gets wheeled around the parking lot. It works well for this purpose at 3 quarter volume, even over the noise of the bikes. I've also run an MP3 player thru it and it sounds very good. I wouldn't hesitate to use a pair of these on my music gigs. I work a single act, singing, playing guitar and bass pedals along with a drum machine. I bought this on a stupid deal of the day, cheap. Can't beat that.

This truly a piece of carp (not the fish) at any price. I bought this thinking it might be even the equivalent of JBL Eon from 20 years ago, thinking that the price/technology improvements would have made it possible for the marginal performance of a 1990 EON to be affordably duplicated by this speaker.

Not the case. Barely better than a ghetto blaster. I couldn't possibly be more disappointed with this "SPEAKER", if such a term applies.

    Comments about Gem Sound PXB120USB 12" Powered Speaker with USB/SD Media Player:

    I needed a powered speaker to augment my keyboard amp.....for keyboard and vocals. I knew this was not a high end unit but the specs looked good and the price was right! I'm happy to report that it performed as expected: clear sound with plenty of volume for small venues. Too soon to tell if it holds up. So far, so good

      Delivery was fast, and speaker was as described. Still haven't been able to get the remote control to work, possibly it needs a new battery. It is handy being able to play MP3 files from a memory stick inserted in the back of speaker. Good volume from speaker , and sound is average from a plastic speaker. Good value for the price and I enjoy the light weight for my back.

        I plan to use as vocal monitors in small venues. They have decent sound. Very light weight and handles are in good spots. The MP3 player is nice for music at parties. Good value for the price.

              Comments about Gem Sound PXB120USB 12" Powered Speaker with USB/SD Media Player:

              I bought one of these as a Christmas gift for myself last December to replace my power head and passive speakers just to simplify setup. I use it with a small 5 channel mixer a Shure mike and an Ibanez Artwood acoustic electric guitar for a folk and gospel music sing along. I play two or three gigs every week and have fallen in love with this speaker. I got to compare it head-to-head with a similar Gemini active speaker at an outdoor event this summer and the Gem Sound was louder and clearer.
              The MP3 player is a bonus that I use by setting up the speaker first, plugging it in and letting it play recorded music to attract the crowd while I'm still setting up. It also keeps them from distracting us with questions while we have work to do. I love it
              I'm sold on this PBX speaker so much that I now want to get a second one so I can rule the park when I do outdoors gigs and also to use with my big Yamaha 24 channel mixer when the band and chorus get together for big outdoor events.
              So I'm hoping that they go on sale sometime before Christmas.

                Already own one and it has performed well. Recently added DJ/Karaoke to my kit bag so I purchased another one. I use the pair with a powered sub. Produces a good solid sound, especially for what I have invested.

                    I'm giving this unit 4 stars only because I just got it and can't comment on if it will last. If it's still going a year from now it's 5 star material. I Honestly don't understand the poor sound quality reviews. Maybe it's what is going in that doesn't sound so good. This unit surpassed my expectations in all categories including sound quality. Use the EQ! it works! Very happy with this purchase!
