American Audio CPX12A 12-Inch Powered PA Speaker

The American DJ CPX 12A 500W, 2-way active speaker is designed for mobile entertainers, and production companies. It's also great for installations where affordable sound is required. The CPX 12A is designed to deliver great sound for your band, mobile DJing, or for installation in churches, clubs, lounges, or bars. This speaker makes a great floor monitor or side fill as well.

Features include 12 inch woofer, a 2-way speaker with high efficiency Class D amplifier, 500W built-in bi-amplifier, 5 M10 rigging points, time aligned electronic crossover with low pass: 2nd ordered filter 2.7KHz and Low cut: 2nd ordered filter 30Hz. Speaker is stand mountable with heavy duty steel front grill, ergonomic handles, power and clip LED indicators, XLR and RCA inputs, XLR and TRS throughputs, clipping and thermal protection. The Channel Equalizer provides 100 Hz +/- 12dB Bass and 10KHZ +/- 12dB Treble.

The four models in the CPX series are appropriately nicknamed "Road Warriors" because of their rugged, durable construction. While the competition has opted to exchange hard wearing, long lasting, sturdiness for lighter weight, this series delivers on both. The CPX 12A weighs in at only 40 pounds and is durable enough for the road.

A DJ friend of my told me about these speakers that sounds great. There great for house party or cookout. I like the fact they have RCA jacks so that you can hook up your iPod. Secondly, the cost was reasonable and didn't break the budget.

These Rock
Pros: Easy To Set Up,Great Sound Quality,Good Power Output,Attractive Design

I wanted something that would give me a more "PRO" sound then a lot of the Boom/ Sizzle speakers that were out there. These were the perfect choice. Very clean, full and loud. Also a more PRO look than anything in this price range. Very solid cabinet.

Professional box on a budget
Pros: Easy to Mount,Great Sound Quality,Easy To Set Up,Attractive Design,Good Power Output

As a mobile DJ, we're always looking for ways to enhance our setups. Everyone knows that speaker choice is on the top of the list. With thousands of brands and styles to choose from, your always asking yourself will this work and how much do they cost? I'd like to say this about the American Audio CPX12A, This a professional little box on a budget. Very attractive with more then decent power. Sound quality is quite good as well. I'm actually using this speaker for several different applications and so far I'm more than impressed. Its what I would call another bang per buck diamond in the rough. Well built design, loud and clear. Better then average bass from this 12" cabinet. Its one to consider for anyone who's looking to spend a little, not a lot. PSSL has fantastic customer services by the way and its just one of the reasons why I'll be shopping with them again. Kudos to Kevin, thanks for all of your understanding and help.

Ok but Not Great
Bought two, one was defective. Heavier than expected and doesn't crank as much as I would have expected either. Bought them for the price point, not that impressed. Lots of inputs but crackled a bit here and there. Have only used the one which works once and will only use it in an emergency situation. Better off with a Behringer etc.
