A perfect audio solution for for gigging musicians, DJs and live sound professionals, the Samson Auro X12D is lightweight but packs a 1,000-watt Class D whollop!

Don't let the meager 29 pounds of the SamsonAuro X12D fool you, as this loudspeaker features an impressive 1,000 watts of output power and Samson's own R.A.M.P. DSP technology for full-range, high definition audio at all volume levels.

And thanks to its 12" extended low frequency driver and accompanying 1.34" compression driver, the X12D generates a well balanced and incredibly articulate audio experience. Its back panel offers two XLR-1/4" input channels, each with independent volume controls. It also feature a Master Volume control, as well as a 3-position EQ and HPF presets for different applications and setups. Lastly, an XLR Link output lets you expand your sound with the integration of additional powered speakers.

At A Glance:
  • 1,000 watt, two-way active loudspeakers for live sound applications
  • Lightweight, ultra-efficient Class-D amplifier (cabinet <30 lbs!)
  • 800W LF + 200W HF power amplifiers (peak)
  • Ultra-wide, flat frequency response
  • Custom-designed, heavy-duty, 12” long throw low frequency drivers provide enhanced bass response
  • 1.34” titanium diaphragm compression driver with 1” throat for smooth high-end reproduction

R.A.M.P It Up!
The X12D also features Samson's R.A.M.P. Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology. The Reactive Alignment  continually corrects the audio signal, ensuring a high-integrity linear response and also offers the speaker and its components with Maximum Protection via over current/temperature sensors and fault indication.

Using the Auro X12D/X15D as a Floor Monitor
The Auro X12D is an ideal solution for stage monitoring and thanks to its unique design, two wedge monitor positions are possible. When placed on its side, with the high frequency horn facing to the left of the enclosure, the Auro is tilted at a 30 degree angle, optimizing performance when used on a large stage but when facing to the right of the enclosure, the Auro is tilted at a 45 degree angle optimizing performance when used on smaller stages. Brilliant!

Comments about Samson Auro X12d 1000W 2-Way Active Loudspeaker:

A 1000w amp in a 12" speaker is almost unheard of. The amount of power you get for the price is amazing in this speaker. Definitely recommended for DJ's and bands.

    Comments about Samson Auro X12d 1000W 2-Way Active Loudspeaker:

    Great little speaker packing a 1000 watts that sounds great! Its built like a tank for good durability. The highs and mids are fantastic but if you were using them for mains, you would definitely want to add a subwoofer to it. Small and light weight make it great for any gig.

    Comments about Samson Auro X12d 1000W 2-Way Active Loudspeaker:

    These things are really good for the money. You won't find another cabinet with as much power and as lightweight for this much money, so you might as well just get this one.

    I wish more clubs around here would get wise to these cabinets. They really do sound great. You put them with a subwoofer, and your drums will sound get, and that's really the most important thing a PA can do. Any PA can reproduce vocals, but if you don't have that drum sound, your band is gonna suck.

            great sounding portable speaker! With the upgrade of 2 inputs this speaker is great for small events as well as large events when adding a mixer. Light weight with lots of punch makes this a great buy.
