My uses:
I currently own the QSC K Setup ( K12's and K Sub). While I can't expect these to even compare, I couldn't resist the price advantage, especially since these will be used as remote speakers for event centers that have older configurations. I did a gig here in San Diego that had an odd shaped room, and people sitting in the back away from the stage and dance floor. These would have been perfect in this situation because it would allow me to distribute sound to those parts of the room.
Impression:
After plugging the system in I was impressed with the minimal hiss it generated. While not DSP, I appreciate the EQ selector switch. I plugged in a mic directly and then was able to hear a difference between "Voice", "Normal", and "Dj". I expect to run these at normal and then adjust from the mixer accordingly. I like the lightweight feel of these, and the construction. They are very discreet looking as to not be too obvious in a setting such as a wedding or corporate dinner party. I would not recommend running these things at max all night long.
Purpose:
The practical application would be to use as an extended PA system to use during programs, or for event locations that require a system outside, for a ceremony, for example, or music piped out to a patio. I probably would not use these as mains, although for smaller house parties these would do the trick with an added sub of course. I don't really like the screw thing that helps lock the speaker to a tripod. I see changing this in the future.
All in all I felt confident with the purchase. It's always good to have a backup system and I feel these would do the job well. For the price that PSSL is selling these for, it can't be beat!

I was very happy with these speakers for the first month. Then I had to send one back after only 2 gigs. After being repaired they worked again for a few more gigs. The tweeters have stopped working now on 2 of my 4 GSR12 speakers. As often as I have to send them for repair, I would advise against getting these speakers. After 3 repairs in 5 months, I am regretting the purchase, and buying better speakers.

    When I purchased these speakers I expected an average powered speaker that I was going to use as monitors for my gigs. Boy was I wrong! These speakers are awesome... I own Yamaha's, Peavey's, Mackie's, B-52's and couple of Alesis and K&R monitors and these M-Audio's can stand up to them. I have used them in Karaoke parties, as monitors for DJ'ing and for live bands. They are super light but get the job done. I give these a 5 star anytime.

    Comments about M-Audio By Avid M-Audio GSR-12 300 Watt 12" 2 Way Powered Speake +:

    Yep they're back! So I thought I'd put up some obversavations after using mine for the last couple of months.

    The sound is generally what you would expect from a comapny that makes studio monitors - very smooth, with no harshness with no listening fatigue after long sessions. They are very warm sounding - almost to the point of being muddy.

    It's a cab that works best at moderate levels in smaller spaces. The relatively high crossover point (probably to protect a smallish compression driver) has a lot to do with that.

    The only powered cab I've had the chance to directly compare them to is a Mackie SRM-450 (Chinese) that I took home from the club so I could run some tests here at home. When adjusted the levels on both so they were roughly equal and ran both cabs up to where their limit lights were flickering, the Mackies were much louder and could throw the sound further when I took the cabs outside.

    But the M-Audios sounded better, especially in their comfort zone inside at lower levels.

    I'm using mine as keyboard and DJ monitors primarily - both here at home and in clubs. For that application they are perfect, and why I gave them 5 stars. But they do have their limitations, so don't expect them to do it all.

    My boxes had been opened (you could see box cutter marks inside) but it didn't look like an "open box" from PSSL. Things were way too neatly repackaged, and everything inside was in pristine condition. Maybe a factory recall or something - dunno.

    Also now that they've been in use awhile I've got a loose mic/line button on one, but since mine are always in "line" position it's not a big deal.

    Not at this price anyway.

        I got this because I needed a sound system with a lot more volume than what I had. I use an XLR connection to each one of the speakers for a VMS4 and got great results. For the price, they have fantastic build quality, great options and connections, and sound really good. Personally I never use the EQ adjustments, the normal setting sounds the best to me. My one problem with this unti, is that the speakers 'pop' when you turn them off. I have always been taught that this is bad for the life of the speaker, but on further inquiry it apparently isn't that bad. The pops are quiet and minimal, so standing next to the rest of this units features, it is a fantastic deal. Bottom line; good quality, good build, good options and connections, good sound and volume. this only got 4 stars because its not a "top of the line" item, but for what it is I am VERY impressed

        Finally have my own PA now and do not rely on band mates for gig work. These speakers surpassed my expectations in terms of frequency response, power and weight. The EQ presets turned out to be more useful than I thought they would, and are thoughfully designed. My only concern is keeping the hard shell exterior looking good and from getting all scratched up. Must have covers.

THEY WOULD EASILY BEAT A LOT OF 12 INCH POWERED SPEAKERS COSTING TWICE AS MUCH. THE SOUND QUALITY IS PHENOMENAL! THE SPL OF THESE SPEAKERS ARE PERFECT FOR SMALL TO MEDIUM SIZED HALLS. THEY WORK GREAT FOR OUTDOOR AND LARGER HALLS IF THE VENUE DOESN'T REQUIRE FOR EXTREME BASS OR HIGH SPL'S. M-AUDIO IS KNOWN FOR STUDIO QUALITY MONITORS AND THESE ARE NO EXCEPTION! IF YOU'RE ON A VERY TIGHT BUDGET BUT NEED SPEAKERS THAT WILL DO THE JOB, THESE ARE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                    I'm reviewing the entire GSR system (GSR-12's as mains, GSR-18's/Subs, GSR-10's for DJ monitors)

                    I was finally able to take the whole system out for a party and take it to the limit, an outdoor party with different electronic music DJ's all day long. I am very impressed. Not necessarily because it sounded so awesome, but because what I PAID for this system.

                    The value is incomparable, I could have spent 2-3 times as much and got an incremental increase in sound quality and power, but this little rig totally does the job. These speakers are a little underpowered, and not as solid sounding as something like QSC, EV, (or Yorkville), but otherwise they sound great. Probably a step down from Mackie Thumps, possibly equivalent to JBL's and Yamaha, but definitely better than the lower-end value brands that I won't mention.

                    The major con is power, If you're used to chest-thumping bass with tons of headroom to spare, you may be disappointed. But if you are on a budget then these speakers will leave you impressed.

                    I had a good handful of sound geeks checking out the system and giving compliments, this system doesn't suck ;-)

                    I also had these running through a dbx DriveRack PX, that probably also helped.

                    So now I just hope these things last, and don't break down right away. Can't wait to take these babies out again :-)

                          Using to play my Yamaha Tyros2 keyboard and Hammond XK-1 organ at home and in nursing homes. I am very pleased with them (2) and I find the bass very good for my set up. In fact I am running the bass out of my mixer at about 40% and mid/high about 60%. Both keyboards at flat output. I am very glad I puchased them.

                                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.

                                These powered speakers are going to be lighter, 12" woofer, less output and different frequency response. These speakers are also cheaper in price.

                                Per my review (if it get's posted since these are discontinued) I did a side/side comparison next to a K12. However, I've heard the Mackie TH15's and say they were comparable. With the 15" driver the Thumps may have a bit more bass, but think that it's close. Power-wise it seems that the GSR-12 has a little more. If available I'd definitely consider the GSR-12's.

                            • Q:

                              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

                                Powered speakers should not be used to power passive speakers. You can connect passive speakers into an amplifier and use that in the same sound system no problem.

                                Only a power cable comes with them. The power cable will be approx. 3 feet.

                                You can use the Gator GPA-712SM, and any standard tripod speaker stands. I personally like Ultimate Support because of the durability, quality, warranty, and versatility.

                                As far as a bag goes, one of the best ones is the Gator GPA-712SM. For stands, we currently have Ultimate speaker stands on special ( http://www.pssl.com/Ultimate-TS110BPACK-Tall-SpeakerLight-Stand-Pac- ).
