American Audio Introduces APX12 GO BT - Flexible Audio on the Go




American Audio’s APX12 GO BT, a self-contained portable audio system designed for playing music and making announcements absolutely anywhere. Combining a 12” speaker cabinet, class D amplifier, internal battery, on board media player with Bluetooth and wireless mic receiver, it offers a complete audio system in one easy to transport package.

It is ideal for making announcements and playing pre-game music at sports events, to impromptu pop-up musical performances.

With a sleek molded plastic design and matte black finish, the speaker enclosure is fitted with a tough protective metal grille on its front. It features a 12” woofer with a 1.5” voice coil paired with a 1” high frequency driver. An internal Class D module provides 65 Watts RMS of amplification for a peak power output of 200 Watts. The system has a frequency response of 40Hz-18KHz and a sensitivity of 93 +/- 2 dB.

The APX12 GO BT’s internal 700mA 12V battery allows up to 8 hours of use from a single charge, while a handy 4-segment LED battery life indicator provides a snap shot of the amount of charge remaining. An IEC power input socket can be used both for charging and running the system from a wall socket instead of the battery.

An internal media player allows direct playback of mp3 audio files stored on either a USB stick or SD memory card. This player also features an FM radio tuner as well as a Bluetooth receiver that allows easy connection of a smartphone or tablet. A large backlit LCD display screen on the rear of the cabinet, alongside dedicated Mode, Play/Pause, Stop, Repeat and Track Skip buttons, provide simple and intuitive control of the media player.

Both XLR and 1/4-inch jack sockets are provided for external Mic input, while the Line input offers XLR and RCA options alongside a dedicated 1/8-inch Aux connection for direct connection of a smartphone or tablet. A Line Out XLR socket is also provided for passing the audio signal through to a second APX12 GO BT or other active speaker. The mixer features independent level controls for the Mic and Line inputs, as well as the on-board media player, and also offers a master volume control.

“The APX12 GO BT is an all-in-one portable audio system that is ideal for everyone from yoga instructors running classes in the park to DJs playing poolside sets; street vendors selling their wares to buskers performing in subway stations,” comments Alfred Gonzales, ADJ Group Sales Manager. “At the moment, as social distancing continues to be important, it’s also a perfect choice for all kinds of restaurants, bars and retailers who are offering curbside pickup and want to entertain their customers while they wait. On top of all that, it’s also priced competitively, making it an attractive choice for private use too.”
