Need big sound in a small space? Set the Yamaha BR12M on stage and you'll get just that. Ideal for building a passive PA rig on a budget, the BR12M PA monitor is a high-performance bargain offering the full-frequency response, high output, and power handling that you'd expect of a more expensive model, but at a price that won't set you back.

Made for the Stage

Handling 300 watts program and 600 watts peak, these 12-inch passive speakers are powerful enough to run as floor monitors in a school or house of worship -- or even as your main in a small club. The BR12M's compact, lightweight build makes it easy to mount on a stand, using its built-in pole sockets, or to place it discreetly onstage. Large steel handles help you get the 34-pound unit from van to stage, and corner protectors safe-guard the monitor from impending kicks and drops.

The "BR" Stands for Bass Response

You don't need huge monitors to hear full-range sound. Yamaha's Bass Reflex technology backs the BR12M's superior low-frequency response, while a 1-inch titanium HF driver and 90- x 40-degree non-resonant horn yield sparkling highs. Versatility is the name of the game, as the BR12M can handle any kind of music across the frequency spectrum, from 65 Hz to 20 kHz. Since integral protection circuitry is built into the passive crossover, your music comes through loud and clear with near-zero distortion.

Product Description

The BR-Series from Yamaha combines affordability with high performance. Five BR models are designed to fit the budgets of performing musicians, small churches, and schools, while delivering the full frequency response and high output of more costly systems. While "BR" presents "bass reflex", it also proves very appropriate for describing the line's advanced feature set...

Built Right

Combining their knowledge of acoustics and advanced computer controlled woodworking, Yamaha Music Manufacturing in Thomaston, Georgia, crafts the BR line of sound reinforcement loudspeakers to exacting standards. Each model's large steel handles, corner protectors, and built-in pole sockets, assure both durability and flexibility.

Better Response

BR cabinets are carefully designed for the best balance of small, easy to handle size and great low-frequency response, using Bass Reflex technology. High-frequency response is also enhanced with a 1" titanium HF driver and 90 degrees by 40 degrees non-resonant horn.

Best Reliability

All BR-Series models are covered by a three-year warranty. With integral protection circuitry built into the passive crossover, you can expect a long life of high output and minimal distortion. Whichever model you choose, your message is sure to be heard using BR-Series loudspeakers...and you can take the savings to the bank!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Value!"
Sound: Great clarity for a small price tag. Sounds almost identical to the pricier C12V. Puncy bass, clear upper-mid range, and crisp high end is easily achieved with very little EQ adjustments. Feature: This cab is lightweight, looks and sounds great, and has the socket for mounting on stands for use as a small venue main. The power handling is listed in the manual at 300 program / 600 peak which is higher than what I've seen it advertised. If you want mega low end shaking the house you probably want a larger cab with a 15" in it. However the bass reflex system in the BR line will likely surprise you. But in all honesty this speaker is a solid and versitile monitor with surprising punch and Yamaha quality, not to mention a 3 year warranty. Quality: No worries about quality. This thing is made in the USA by Yamaha and backed by a 3 year warranty. Value: If you are looking for a monitor / main that has a good full range sound, don't overlook the BR line from Yamaha. Sounds as good as more expensive cabs for a lot less money. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed any support from Yamaha and I don't plan on needing it. The Wow Factor: The cab itself looks great. I purchased the BR12M because of the sound and power handling capacity. It's a great deal. The sleek, low profile design is gravy. Overall: I had several different monitors of various brands, sizes and styles recommended to me. After looking at the features such as power handling, components, etc., listening to a few of them side by side in a "sound off", and of course comparing prices, this seemed to be the best deal for me. There are a lot of different styles of music and a lot of different opinions on what sounds good and what doesn't. The BR12M had the features, the versatility and the sound that fit my need.... and the price was right!
Style of Music: Contemporary Christian / Praise & Worship
