(Includes 90 day money back guarantee)


The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

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.

Sleek and Powerful

The KH120's powerful titanium fabric dome produces low distortion, high frequency sound reproduction. The Elliptical Mathematically Modelled Dispersion™ (MMD™ ) wave-guide gives smooth off-axis response and means the monitor is more forgiving of diverse acoustical environments. The composite sandwich cone dampens break-up modes whilst the long throw bass driver gives low distortions at high sound levels.

The monitor has a sleek, black body with a robust metal grille to protect against any mechanical damage during transport or gigs. The large front panel ports reduce bass compression and mean the monitor is easier to mount in tight spaces such as OB vans. The KH120's compact aluminium cabinet is magnetically shielded and minimises resonances, providing better heat dissipation and a long life.

Mixing and Matching

If you're using the KH120 with a mixing console you'll find the wide horizontal dispersion has been designed to provide a freedom of movement across the mixing console whilst the narrow vertical dispersion reduces reflection off the console. The one-piece front panel with no discontinuities reduces diffraction and smooths the frequency response. The KH120 is highly reliable due to its separate woofer and tweeter electronic peak limiters and thermal-protection circuitry.

The powerful analog amplifiers with large headroom improve transient response. The production consistency across the range means any KH120 is "pair-matched" to any other KH120. New mounting hardware options provide more flexibility when in more diverse locations.

Upmost Control

The 4-position bass, low-mid and treble acoustical controls give you the upmost control in diverse acoustical environments. The wide range input gain and output level controls provide easy interfacing with signal sources. The display dimmer is great for use in low lighting level conditions or behind screen applications. The ground lift reduces noise in electrically noisy environments and over-comes ground loops.
