Product Description

Samson's Live Active PA enclosures feature exceptional design and the highest quality components in a small to medium loudspeaker system. Their all-plywood construction is ideal for portable or installation applications. An advanced amplifier design, high power-handling speaker components, EQ sections designed specifically for the speakers and separate speaker processing for both highs and lows mean remarkable performance day in and day out. Durable, lightweight construction with extensive bracing and dado joints also ensure that this monitor will withstand wear and tear in both installation and portable applications.

As a two-way active, bi-amped monitor enclosure, the Live 612M delivers 250 watts to the custom designed 12-inch low frequency driver and 50 watts to the high frequency titanium compression driver. These components work perfectly together to provide totally articulate and accurate sound reproduction. For increased reliability, the Live power amplifiers feature large heat sinks and massive power transformers that will sustain high volume levels while successfully protecting the speakers. A great choice for high performance loudspeakers, the Live Series from Samson offers a wide range of configurations and are perfect for live music applications, house of worship, theatrical or club installations. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Samson products.

4.5 out of 5 (17 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Beautiful crisp clean sound if You could only hear it over the rest of the band!"
Sound: So I've noticed a real lack of reviews on this product so I thought I'd give people a hands on experience with the Samson 612M powered floor monitor. First off, this monitor is beautiful sounding. It has a rich full tone throughout all frequencies, and is by far the best sounding speaker in my collection. I'm using it as a monitor for my vocals in a Five piece heavy rock band. It makes my voice sound full and clear, and thats what I wanted. Feature: The monitor is very limited as far as connections go. It has only one input wich is XLR, a passthrough XLR connection, and gain, bass, treble knobs. I wanted to plug my microphone directly to the unit and then use the passthrough to connect to my mixer, so this has the connections I required. However most monitor applications may need a 1/4" input wich would require an adapter. Although the sound is great from this monitor, some midrange control would have been nice also. Ease of Use: This is very easy to use, connections are simple and as I said before it sounds amazing. Quality: The product is sturdy and very nice looking. The first one I received was defective, so I do have some concerns about the internal components failing over time, but my replacement is holding up nicely so far. Value: I think the price is great on this unit, and it is very hard to find a powered wedge that looks this nice for the money. Manufacturer Support: not used so far. The Wow Factor: This thing is super nice looking, has a good angle to it, and makes the band look professional. Overall: So even though this speaker Sounds great, looks great, and is a great price, my biggest gripe is about the volume of the unit. This thing is not loud at all. Even though it is advertised as having 300 Watts RMS, you would think that it only is pushing about half that. I tried several things to get the volume higher. I cranked the gain knobs as well as both EQ knobs up all the way, and still struggled to hear it over my drummer. Put it this way, I was able to put it on full blast and could stand 2 feet away from the woofer without feedback. Now this is with the Mic plugged directly into the XLR jack. I am thinking that perhaps if I can use a small mixer to increase my gain before it hits the speaker it might help, but I have a feeling that I will clip the unit If I do so. I am using a set of Behringer b412dsp's as my mains, and they are rated at 400 watts, but have probably 4 times the volume this thing has. Highly disappointing. These would be great for an acoustic set or spoken word but just don't cut it in my rock band. We don't have a terribly loud stage volume either, just loud enough to mix with the drums, but the drums seem to drowned out any volume I can get out of this. I expected much more out of 300 watts.
