Presonus Air 12
The AIR12 looks, feels and, most importantly, sounds like professional gear and it’s flexible for use in many different situations. The AIR12 is part of a series that also includes AIR10 and AIR15, as well as two subwoofers, the AIR15s and AIR18s, all of which may fit your particular needs. Check out the application guide online for lots of good advice about setup, too.
We set up two AIR12s for an acoustic duo gig in a large room. The speakers have an onboard mixer with two XLR/TRS combo inputs, stereo 1/8″ input and EQ, so we could have used them on their own, but, instead, paired them with PreSonus’s StudioLive AR12 mixer to get some effects and preamps for our guitars. The AIR12’s 12” speaker gave both the guitars and vocals a big, full sound with a lot of tight low end and the 1.35″ high-frequency driver provided natural-sounding highs with very little adjustment needed. The unit also provides one summed balanced output.
