Samson’s Auro D1200 Active Subwoofer provides powerful lows that let audiences not only but “feel” the bass.

The Auro D1200 packs heart thumping power in an efficient enclosure that weighs just over 40 pounds, making it ideal for fixed installations, DJs and sound reinforcement applications. The Auro D1200 Active Subwoofer goes where low-end is a must.

The Auro D1200 features a 12-inch long excursion low frequency driver and a built-in amplifier that produces 700 watts of power. Signal, Limiter and Protect indicators offer constant monitoring of the amplifier. Its variable low pass filter control allows you to properly tune the subwoofer for specific applications, while the system’s Polarity switch can be used to ensure that the subwoofer is in phase with the rest of your PA system. The Auro D1200 also features balanced stereo XLR-1/4-inch combo inputs, parallel XLR outputs and a 3-position (Normal, Deep, Boost) DSP contour control.

A roadworthy design, the Auro D1200 is constructed of solid 5/8-inch plywood with a professional textured paint finish. The enclosure also features two large ergonomic carry handles that make transport a breeze, as well as a 1 3/8-inch pole mount receptacle. Easy to move and built to last, the Auro D1200 Active Subwoofer provides the super tight and punchy low frequency output that completes your Auro PA setup.

          The Samson AURO D1200 12" Active Subwoofer is an awesome subwoofer at an even more awesome price! For a mobile DJ who doesn't need to make a huge venue thump, this is the sub for them. It's a 12 inch speaker at 700 watts which will fill up most venues that a mobile DJ is needed for. It has two ins and two outs so you can hook everything up seamlessly. At 40 pounds, this sub won't break your back and at this price it won't break your wallet.

          Comments about Samson AURO D1200 12" Active Subwoofer:

          You won't find a better powered bass for the money. Delivers big sound, takes up very little space. A great edition to any PA system. Add this speaker to 2 powered Samson tops for a complete sound that hits hard. This is a real hands on review from Espo @Sam Ash Music New Haven.

              Comments about Samson AURO D1200 12" Active Subwoofer:

              12" speakers aren't the biggest in the sub world, but this little guy delivers some serious thump. I was impressed with the clarity in the low end, no muddiness here. Pair it with some satellite speakers and you have the perfect system for a mobile DJ or practice room PA. Serious bang for your buck.

                Weighing in at just 40 pounds, the Samson D1200 is an impressive little subwoofer. 12 speaker with 700 watts of power running through it, it is awesome for small shows, mobile djs or just filling in your sound on your PA. Easy to set up, all you have to do is plug it in and play. Two XLR inputs (run from the line out on your mixer or controller) and two XLR outputs (run right up to your main speakers). You can even pole mount your mains right into the D1200's. No more killing your back moving around your PA system. And the sound quality is great!

                    This sub really pumps! It is easy to set up and delivers a thump! It is a great size too for a sub and can easily be used in conjunction with a pre-existing system. I have tried this head to head with other subs and this stands up to them in terms of clarity, boom and durability. This is a great speaker! This is a hands on review from Zak at Sam Ash Buffalo Grove.

                      We are currently using this sub as the featured sub in the DJ section at the Sam Ash Music in Indianapolis. It is hooked up at the front of the section and it sounds awesome. Samson has build a box that is built tough, sexy and bangs! Using this in conjunction with two satellite tops will be a great system for mobile DJs or small bands and the PA for your house. The thump you get from the low end will make your chest pound. Come on in and cheek this sub out. I dare you to.

                        I am Mobile DJ and wanted to find a way to expand the sound of my 2 12 inch EV Lives. But was worried about a sub being to big to bring out and pack up every time. Saw this 12 inch sub and heard it was light Class D so I decided to test it out. Wow this thing has totally added to my sound, can't believe the nice thump I get out of this from a 12 inch. Super portable and really like the DSP switch that I set to boost for part of my set and flat on the other. Might have to just get another in case my shows move to larger rooms
