Yamaha BR12M Passive Unpowered Stage Monitor Cabinet (300 Watts, 12")

The "BR" stands for bass response! This tried-and-true Yamaha passive monitor wedge delivers full-range sound from a 12" woofer, and handles 300 W program. Unpowered. Requires separate power amplifier.

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.

Yamaha BR12M Stage Monitor

The BR12M 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!

Note: Unpowered speaker, requires separate power amplifier.

These monitors are light weight, sound incredible (good enough to use in smaller clubs for mains) and have a hole to mount them on a stand. They also look great.
