"Great budget active PA" 8 (8/10)

Product bought new in July 2011, for 520$ VAT incl

Overall Opinion 8/10

What thing do you like most/least about it?

For the budget end of the active PA range it has great build quality and sounds impressive as well. I've been using it at a lot of mobile DJ gigs over the last 6 months and it's been working great. Handles 6 hours plus of continuous use with no problems. Nice and portable too, this and my kit fits easily into the back of a Nissan almera hatchback.
What I like least is the weight of the sub! 40 kilos isn't light to carry up a stairs on your own. Though it does have decent handles built into the side to make it easier. Also has wheels on the bottom so apart from stairs it's easy to move!

What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Very good value for money

Precision and quality of the sound?
For the price I was very impressed with the sound. Goes loud without distorting and the sub packs a punch. I use it for parties with 100 or so people but I reckon it would struggle with more the 150 or so

Did you try many other models before getting this one?
Have used quite a few generic passive plastic box speakers and amps before. This is much better

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?...
Yes. I had a budget of 500 euros for a PA and this seemed the best out there for that price, came with all cables, speaker stands and bags for the stands. This has worked perfectly for the last 6 months and sounds great.
