Portability that eases your load

The XP112A's super-portability makes your gigging life easier. The roadworthy solid polypropylene construction stands up to demanding tour schedules and is designed to work with your drivers to put out great sound. Molded into the sides and top of the XP112A are convenient carry handles, so you can grab ahold for easy transport and loading. And since it's so lightweight, getting stellar sound, power, and versatility into your PA doesn't get much easier.

Versatility for easy integration into your PA

At Sweetwater, our Sales Engineers help build PA systems every day the versatility of the XP112A's design makes it an invaluable tool that's great for anything you need. A specially designed angle puts the XP112A in a tilt-back position for use as a perfectly angled monitor wedge, getting the sound right into the performer's face, where it needs to be. To cover your audience as main speakers, Samson integrated a 1 3/8" pole socket for speaker stand positioning, so you can throw your sound just where you need it. So whether you're in the band or on the dance floor, the XP112A's 500 watts of power and balanced sound from the 12" extended-range low-frequency woofer and the 1" HF driver make for a great show.

You'll have control over the speaker's output with the level control - plug a whole mix or a single microphone into the combination XLR and 1/4" input and use the EQ controls to dial in just the sound you want. You can even daisy-chain multiple XP112As via an XLR output to suit your mix situation.

Super sound! Super price!

Bought this as a keyboard amp/monitor. Just tested it out, and it's amazing!!! Sound is better than any keyboard amp I've ever owned. Plenty loud!! It's also lighter than any amp I've ever had. For the price there's NOTHING that competes with it.

I bought this because feature for price ratio was good. I use it as a keyboard monitor. compares well to speakers costing much more. Has plenty of power . Also light weight. Clean high quality sound.

Good deal, good sound

Got it to replace a blown floor wedge. It's very clear and certainly more than loud enough; even though we get plenty loud onstage, the monitor mix sounds the way it should. And the plastic shell takes a beating, while the unit is relatively light which makes moving it around easy. In fact, the volume control on the back of the unit rarely needs to go any higher than 3-4. My only problem is the noise floor. Each preamp or power amp in a chain adds to the background noise, and since our monitor mix comes from the main board to a powered mixer then to the speakers, this speaker with its own amp has a little more background 'sizzle' than the other monitors. Not a fault of the product.... just be aware that you may encounter a similar situation depending on your configuration. Oh, and if you do replace a passive speaker with this be sure to take a line out to it and not a speaker out.
