M-Audio GSR-12 300 Watt 12in. 2 Way Powered Speaker

Developed by the same engineering team behind M-Audio's industry-leading reference monitors, the M-Audio GSR12 two-way 300-watt active sound reinforcement speaker combines pro-quality sound with road-worthy performance. For smooth, balanced response, they employed a precision-engineered 24dB/octave crossover to integrate the 1.3in. high-frequency Titanium compression driver and 12in. low-frequency driver with 2.5in. voice coil. Efficient Class-D amplifiers deliver unmatched clarity and ultra-high output while remaining cool—hour after hour, show after show. Unique tone presets make it easy to dial in great sound without being an engineer. It all comes together in a lightweight-yet-rugged enclosure that’s designed for maximum utility, making the GSR12 perfect for any small to mid-size venue.

Are they sold each or as a pair?
Enxo on Jul 18, 2012
BEST ANSWER: These are sold as a single speaker.
I see that the M-Audio GSR-12 300 Watt specifications show 110v-240v operation. Is it an auto voltage selector or is it switchable to the required voltage.
Thanks
Allan
null on Apr 4, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The M-Audio GSR-12 has a built in auto voltage selector.

A staff said the "thru" would work to go out to FOH. Mine doesn't, I get nothing when going to the snake on stage. What am I doing wrong?
ORF Bob on Sep 27, 2012
BEST ANSWER: You might want to check the connections. If that doesn't work, you will need to contact M-Audio at (626) 633-9055. They will be able to help you with any questions you might have.
I see that these have a "Thru" on them for daisy-chaining. Could this be used as a direct line out to FOH amplification?
ORF Bob on Jul 30, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the M-Audio GSR-12 can be used as a direct line out to Front Of House amplification.
DO BOTH SPEAKERS NEED TO BE POWERED OR CAN A PASSIVE SPEAKER BE CONNECTED TO THE POWERED SPEAKER?
Joe on Apr 3, 2012

Great PA's for the price
Pros: Very light,Clear Audio,inexpensive,Easy To Set Up,Attractive Design

I own several EV elx112p's and of course as soon as I received them, I compared the two. Its obviously not a fair comparison since the EV's are designed for a different class, however, I thought I'd share my initial reactions.

The EV's have a much warmer and fuller sound than these do, but I was surprised at how the clarity was retained by the M-Audios. The M-Audios are definitely great speakers for the price, and if you can't afford the next class of speaker, these are a good choice. They are also a lot lighter than the EV's making them easier to carry.

If you need to do a large venue, definitely get a sub for these. The low end output is good for a small venue, but you'll want reinforcement when the room size grows.

Overall, I'm very happy with them, and they have increased the versatility of my audio options as a mobile DJ. I would definitely buy again, and recommend them to others. These are quite a bargain. They won't outperform speakers that cost twice as much, but they stand on their own in their price class!

Cons: NONE

I wasn't expecting much, and my jaws dropped to the floor when I first try these.the only powered speakers I've own are jbl eons,15's so I thought two of these 12's might sound as loud as one EON, but not as clear. and let me tell you I was completely wrong.in scale 0-10 jbl loudness 9 sound quality 8m audio loudness 8 sound quality 10these definately blow me away.I know there are better speakers out there, louder and clearer, but for the price nothing can even compare. I bought 4 of these for my parties.I will only be using two.indoors are just ear bleeding.definately great speakers, better than the mackie thumps for sure, and everything below that.m-audio just gain a fan with me.any questions feel free to askoploss[@]
