Pyle PPA12 12" PA Speaker
Pyle PPA12 12" PA Speaker is rated 3.8571 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spend a little moreSpend a little more if you can. At only 90 db per watt, which is very low ouput, this speaker pales in comparison to even an Emimence Beta. Because of this I think you'd blow it trying to get more out of it than it can produce. I would guess its power ratings are exaggerated (most Pyle products are). So if moneys tight buy it for a spare, but for daily use wait till you can get something better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wouldn't recomend for heavy useI aquired an old floor monitor from a club I was working at. Replaced the woofer with a PPA12, chosen buy specs and mostly price. The PPA12 was heavy and bulkier than the old speaker. The new woofer had nice low end and was clearly louder than the 100 watt driver it replaced and seemed to drown out the horn a little. I loaned the cabnet to the club to use as a DJ monitor while I was geting the usual monitor repaired. When I came back a couple weeks later the woofwer was blown. I know DJs like the music loud so I was not too suprised but a bit dissapointed. considering the price I might even buy another. However I wouldn't recomend the PPA for heavy use. Don't be swayed buy the 700 watts pek rating

Rated 3 out of 5 by from was a great PA woofer until I had a hardcore gigI built a 3 way PA speaker with these about 4 years ago and they sounded and handled great for DJing, spoken, and mid sized concerts.Then recently someone asked me to run sound for their hardcore show, I used the PA for kick drum and vocals, I kept the levels under control on the board but had to turn it way up to compete with the guitars, and at the end of the show the voice coils had both burnt up. luckily my mids and tweeters had a thermal overload, and there was a set of JBL speakers hooked up with them.200 watts is the RMS, they say 700 watts is its peak. I think they burnt up somewhere in between.Bottom Line: If you are looking for a pa woofer and dont do Hardcore this is still a great sounding PA woofer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from built 3 way PA with themThis is an update on my old review. I would only recommend for DJs and hi-fi systems. I don't recommend use with live PA systems. The driver only has 90.0 db so it won't be loud enough to cut through live drums.

Pyle PPA12 12" PA Speaker

for karaoke use?

I am looking to buy 4 to build into 4- 2 ways for karaoke system. What size box and horn would you recommend?
Asked by: nomynadetails
These will require a slightly larger than optimal box of about 5 cubic feet with a 4" diameter, 4" long port which will tune it to roughly 40 Hz. A horn that will work well with these would be the Foster 025N03 horn and the Eminence PXB2:3K5 crossover.
