However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Hybrid Amplification

One of the most unique features of the PreSonus AIR12 Active Loudspeaker is the hybrid amplification technology, combining the best of both worlds for unparalleled audio performance. The choice to include both Class-D and Class A/B amplifiers was to balance the respective strengths of both amplification types. The 500W (continuous) Class D amplifier is used to power the 12-inch LF driver, delivering a powerful and clean low end response. The 200W (continuous) Class A/B amplifier is used to drive the 1.35-inch HF driver, producing a natural yet articulate high end response. The combination of both amplifier can deliver up to 131 db SPL of exceptional audio quality with a wide frequency response ranging from 40 Hz and 20 kHz.

Road-Worthy Construction

The highly durable rugged plastic enclosure is designed to withstand the rigors of extensive and prolonged live use. The front of the speaker also features a tour-grade, 16 gauge steel grille, helping to protect against impact-damage and keep the speaker itself safe at all times. The comfortable ergonomic handle provides you with the means to easily move the speaker to and from the venue without struggling. The multi-angle enclosure makes the AIR12 ideal for a range of live monitoring applications from being used as a floor monitor to enhancing the low end response and more. Additionally the AIR12 features a 35mm pole socket with 7.5 degree downward tilt for versatile mounting options.

DSP Presets

The AIR12 features a range of controls including an easy-to-use signal processor, which allows you to customise the AIR12 at the touch of a button. The signal processor features a range of presets which customises the sound of the speaker for different applications. For example, selecting the DJ preset will optimise the AIR12’s response for music playback. The AIR12 also features treble and bass controls which allows you to boost or cut the levels by 10dB, allowing you to cater to different environments. There are also ‘location presets’ which allow you to optimise the performance of the speaker for stand and bracket mounting.

Built-In Mixer & Connectivity

The PreSonus AIR12 features a variety of different inputs for a range of applications. The rear panel of the AIR12 features two combo XLR mic/TRS Line inputs, each including a Class A microphone preamplifier with independent gain control. Also included is a stereo 1/8’’ connection which allows you play music from a range of audio devices including MP3 player, smartphones, tablets and more. Once connected, these signals can be combined with AIR12’s integrated mixer. A balanced XLR Mix output allows you to pass the signal to other AIR-series loudspeakers
