"Yamaha BR12 Loudspeaker"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was using a pair of Behringer B212D powered speakers never could get the setting right always sounded too boomy even with the lows turn all the way down I bought a pair of these Yamaha BR12's powered by a QSC GX3 power amp and there was a big difference much clearer sound not too boomy nor too tinny I recently played in a church fellowship hall that would seat 400 easy could probably handle twice the room. I would recommend these speaker and power amp to anyone looking for a desent pair of speaker and power amp. I plan on buying the BR12M monitor and another QSC power amp soon.

"Yamaha BR12: Great speakers for short cash!"
I listened to a lot of speakers before buying these. Peavey's, JBL's, EV, Kustom, and other Yamaha's (SM12v). For the money, these sounded best to my ears. The JBL's and EV's sounded better, but for 50% more, they should have! I also listened to the BR15's and found these better for vocals. What I like best is the light weight (35 lbs). I can carry and load them onto the stands with no assistance.
Sound
The Best I've heard in this price range. Good bass, excellent highs. Great for vocals and acoustic/electric guitar.
Features
Not much to say about features, other than the titanium driver is way better for the highs than a piezo. The 12 inch woofer is quite nice, Eminence, I believe.
Ease of Use
Plug it in...
Quality
In this price range, can't be beat. Strong, lightweight cabinets, everything nice and tight, full grill to protect both woofer and horn, strong, well-placed handle for easy transport.
Value
Can't be beat in this price range. The value is so good that you start looking at the S12V Club Speakers (another steal!)
Manufacturer Support
Had experience with my old AS-108 speakers (blown woofer - my fault...). Spoke to technical support for suggestions. Recommendation was excellent. They were more concerned with me being happy than trying to make a buck.
The Wow Factor
Good looks, and with the light weight you don't hate to cart them around. In my eye, Yamaha's simplicity and attention to detail makes them attractive. You'll never be embarrassed to place a Yamaha up on a speaker stand.
