I don't usually write reviews, but I do read them and purchase based on reviews........don't spend your money on this! Bought one, took it home....speaker was cracking like crazy and the EQ knobs did nothing. The bluetooth/card reader did not even turn on. Returned it for an exchange, got it home.....audio was OK...better than the first, but the bluetooth/card reader did not turn on. Returned that one and told the employee I wanted to check the third one before taking it home.....the next two speakers he brought out where crackling and fuzzy sounding with the main volume turned down.....even tried plugging into different outlets just to rule out "dirty power"....didn't help! He suggested the Harbinger V2212...doesn't have any Bluetooth or card reader options, but sounded way better and was constructed better than the American Audio!

I bought this to use for small applications. Backyards parties, house parties. Band rehearsal. I did not realize how handy the Bluetooth would be. I am streaming everything now. Great low priced speaker

Comments about American Audio KPOW15BT 15 in. 2-way Powered Speaker:

I needed some extra sound coverage for a 200 - 300 person event outdoors. Sound was clean and clear to the back of the crowd. The mp3 player was great for playing background music as I set up and tore down the rest of the set and equipment. I have also used them daisy chained in between 2 different PA systems with no problem. The online sale price was over $140 cheaper than the in store tag - so I bought 2 online and went back to the store to pick them up.

    Comments about American Audio KPOW15BT 15 in. 2-way Powered Speaker:

    The speaker stopped working and the speaker shorted out after 3 hours of playing. I had to return it and get a different, better speaker (600 Watt). I could tell with this speaker that the sound quality wast what I was wanting in a speaker. I suggest save up for additional money and buying a better speaker.

      I've added 1 of these to go with my pair of 10" Altos. I wanted to give my acoustic set up a little more volume and bottom end when needed. I'll get another of these 15's soon if it keeps delivering. I think the sound is quite clear. Does anyone know the wattage of this speaker?

      Comments about American Audio KPOW15BT 15 in. 2-way Powered Speaker:

      Just don't bother, these are okay if you just need some active speakers for maybe speaking and stuff, but they're not that good for DJing. They have no bass to them. Save yourself some money, start out with the Harbinger passive speaker sets with amplifier or just regular speakers. They may be a little more money, but they sound so much better.

        I work overnights in a supermarket, bought this because we were sick of the muzack. It has worked out well. I run this one speaker at pretty high volume streaming, usb, and recently feeding a sub as well. I'm hoping to pick up another one when a sale comes up. So yes, would buy again and for the price I would recommend. It sounds reasonably good, plays loud, and has been very reliable.

        Bought this in December 2016. Was used VERY lightly and on VERY few occasions. Tried to use it the other day and one speaker had popping and cracking sounds, plugged it up several different places and unplugged from mixer, still same problem. The other speaker bass or lows were not working. Good thing I bought a 36 month warranty. Filed a claim and sent it in. Looking for replacement speakers now.

        Good value for certain applications

        By V-Tran

        from Brick NJ

        Comments about American Audio KPOW15BT 15 in. 2-way Powered Speaker:

        I purchased only 1 to use for situations that only require modest sound. The Bluetooth and USB features are very nice feature to have for wedding ceremonies or cocktail as you can put the speaker just about anywhere and still have music playing WITHOUT connecting to a mixer or laptop.

        The back panel accepts 1/4", XLR and RCA wires and you can adjust volume, bass & treble. Sound is clear, but since it's a plastic cabinet, the bottom end is like Taylor Swift's. If you want J-Lo type bottom end, add a subwoofer. I swapped out the wimpy OEM woofer (4 ohms) with a more robust Eminence and noticed a difference in sound quality.

        BOTTOM LINE: These speakers are OK if you are an emerging DJ on a budget or if you only need modest sound for certain events. They would not be my daily driver.
