Sounds Great Even When You Crank It

If you want power and portability in a lightweight yet roadworthy active PA speaker, look no further than the Samson Auro X12D. The Auro X12D gives you impressive clarity and definition (even at loud levels), thanks to its efficient Class D amplifier and onboard R.A.M.P. DSP enhancement. Ideal for gigging musicians, the Auro X12D provides you with dual inputs, each with its own volume control, so you can plug your mic into one, your guitar (or any other line-level source) into the other, and maintain perfect control over your levels. Complete with tone controls for customizing your sound and an XLR output for expanding your speaker setup, the feature-packed Samson Auro X12D active PA speaker is sure to become a Sweetwater favorite!

Samson Auro X12D 2-way Active PA Speaker at a Glance:
  • Specially designed drivers create a balanced sound for your entire audience
  • Class D amplifier supplies you with impressive sound
  • R.A.M.P. DSP technology delivers optimized audio performance
  • Tweakable controls and dual-angle positioning for versatile performance
Specially designed drivers create a balanced sound for your entire audience

The Auro X12D's drivers are specially designed to provide fast recovery with minimal distortion. The 1.34" high-frequency compression driver is mounted to a 60 x 90-degree horn, which matches the larger dispersion angle of the low-frequency driver. This gives you a balanced sound that will sound great to everybody in your audience, regardless of where they're sitting (especially when it comes to vocals and those critical upper-mid frequencies).

Class D amplifier supplies you with impressive sound

If sound matters to you (and why wouldn't it?), the Samson Auro X12D won't let you down. Its 1,000-watt Class D amplifier delivers sound with impressive clarity and definition, even when you crank it up. This is because the Auro X12D's bi-amplified circuit divides your audio into ranges that are ideally suited for its individual drivers, ensuring that your high and low frequencies are able to pump and thump without distorting.

R.A.M.P. DSP technology delivers optimized audio performance

Packed with Samson's proprietary R.A.M.P. (Reactive Alignment/Maximum Protection) DSP technology, the Auro X12D delivers optimized audio performance. R.A.M.P. technology uses automatic EQ adjustments to overcome common issues that often plague traditional loudspeakers, such as masked high frequencies from horn reflections and muddy midrange from woofer surface reflections. On top of that, the Auro X12D's crossover network uses Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) filters and transducer time alignment algorithms to provide you with superb frequency balance. Finally, the Auro X12D's integrated overcurrent and temperature sensors keep it cool, eliminating the need for noisy fans.

Tweakable controls and dual-angle positioning for versatile performance

The Auro X12D's dedicated 2-channel mixer provides you with a Mic/Line switch on Channel 1, Volume controls for each channel, and a Master Volume for controlling your overall output level, so you can plug in your mic and guitar (or any other line-level source) while maintaining perfect control over your levels. An XLR line output gives you extra routing options for expanding your speaker setup. On top of that, you get a 3-position highpass filter and EQ presets to shape your sound how you want it. Finally, the Auro X12D supports dual-angle floor positioning for using it as a wedge monitor, as well as a built-in 1-3/8" mount for stand and satellite mounting.

  • 12" extended-range low-frequency driver delivers thumping bass
