£439.00

Developed by the same engineering team behind our industry-leading reference monitors, the M-Audio GSR12 two-way 300-watt active sound reinforcement speaker combines pro-quality sound with road-worthy performance. For smooth, balanced response, we employed a precision-engineered 24dB/octave crossover to integrate the 1.3" high-frequency Titanium compression driver and 12" low-frequency driver with 2.5" voice coil. Efficient Class-D amplifiers deliver unmatched clarity and ultra-high output while remaining cool - hour after hour, show after show. Unique tone presets make it easy to dial in great sound without being an engineer. It all comes together in a lightweight-yet-rugged enclosure that's designed for maximum utility, making the GSR12 perfect for any small to mid-size venue.

M-Audio's US-based engineers applied their years of experience in speaker design to build the GSR series from the ground up. Based on a two-way Class D bi-amplified design, the GSR12 features a custom 12" low-frequency driver with a 2.5" voice coil and 1.3" Titanium high-frequency compression driver. They integrated the drivers using a precision-engineered 24dB/octave crossover to ensure a smooth, seamless transition and articulate balanced sound across the entire audio spectrum. The end result? An incredible listening experience that rivals speakers costing hundreds more.

Ideal for any application

High-quality sound reinforcement speakers are an investment, so we designed the GSR series with flexibility in mind. While other speakers provide a single sound, the GSR12 features four unique presets so you can adjust the speaker's tonal characteristics for different applications. Whether you're performing live, DJing, playing back music, or giving a public address, it's easy to dial in great sound without additional processing.

It's all in the details

Every aspect of the GSR12 is optimized for accurate, full-frequency sound reproduction. We engineered the cabinet enclosure to minimize internal standing waves, while maximizing output and ensuring the best acoustic performance possible. The GSR12 speaker's bass reflex design includes front as well as internal port flares to reduce air turbulence and audible distortion, resulting in tighter, punchier bass response. We also positioned the low-frequency driver close to the front of the cabinet to create a smooth transition between the components, thereby minimizing diffraction. We paid close attention to every detail - so GSR12 delivers your sound the way it was meant to be felt and heard.

Maximum Utility

M-Audio know that stage presence isn't just about you. It's about your gear, too. With its stylish good looks and ergonomic, functional design, GSR12 is easy to move and ideal for a variety of applications. Three integrated handles with deep hand wells ensure comfort and easy transport. The enclosure is custom-designed for versatility - interlocking fixtures let you stack two speakers securely on top of each other, while the angled cabinet allows you to use GSR12 as a floor monitor. Five integrated M10 fly points and a 1.4" (36 mm) pole mount make it easy to position each speaker for optimal sound. And the 18-gauge steel grill protects the woofer during heavy use.

Built to perform

When you're gearing up for a marathon set, you need to know your speakers will go the distance. That's why the GSR12 features a state-of the-art Class D bi-amplified design that delivers an impressive 300 watts of continuous power, which translates into unmatched clarity and pure, punchy sound. Our ultra-efficient Class D power amplifier provides sustained high-output levels with minimum distortion and extremely low heat - even when operating at near-peak levels over extended periods of use. In short, the GSR12 can go for hours without compromise.

Ultra-light weight

The GSR12 speaker is built with lightweight components for easy setup, installation, and transport. The compact neodymium magnet in the low-frequency driver is 50 lighter than the ceramic magnets found in other sound reinforcement systems - reducing the overall cabinet weight by about 20 . Similarly, the Class D amplifier weighs significantly less than other technologies due to its efficient design, which requires minimal circuitry. At only 31 pounds, GSR12 lets you save your energy for your performance.

Great sound - from the stage to the back of the room

Our engineers leveraged their expertise in developing proprietary OptImage wave guide technology to create a sound reinforcement speaker with broad, even coverage. We fine-tuned the GSR12 high-frequency compression driver, then paired it with an optimized horn geometry to provide wide dispersion of the mid and high frequencies (90° H x 60° V), as well as excellent off-axis response. With the GSR series, you hear the same full, balanced sound whether you're right in front of the speaker or 30 degrees off to the side.

Simple yet scalable

It's easy to set up your GSR speaker system. Start with a stereo pair, or create a large speaker array by daisy-chaining up to three GSR speakers per side. If you crave extra bass or need more bottom end to fill a larger venue, add the powerful GSR18 subwoofer to complete your setup. Then use the balanced XLR/TRS combo jack to connect line-level signals and dynamic microphones directly to the speaker for instant sound reinforcement without any additional gear.
