    - How long have you use it?
    Few months, I did buy a friend LESSOR PA.

    - What is the particular feature you like best,
    Very easy to get, not very bulky ITS thundering. Costs absolutely a good piano.

    the least?
    There are all the same after having quite a slap in the t's.
    1, the price quite heavy,

    2 The values ​​indicated from the fact that we can not put two heads on a SUB as the wiring and power indicators seem to be made to CA.

    They show 2 amps 1000 watts.
    The sub will head 500 and 1000W.
    the Impedance match too, but they do not want to put two heads and do not sell. grrrrr

    3 no power button, it sounds stupid, but having to unplug the electric to avoid the price of CLOC a hum ...

    4 SYSTEM WITHOUT acroche lingual plate mtalique expensive.

    5 width pass 10 degrees is great for the outdoors, but in the small hall, the facade of feedback is very hard limit.

    - Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

    A few,
    holanda comparr even in HK with their own system of stacked sub and two speakers. ACTOR DX
    c 10X monstrous.
    all the old sounds ACTOR DX SUB expreme and acute. loudness death
    outline it is very medium. Fairly neutral, sweet treble.
    - How do you report qualitprix?
    Very expensive for the size, but can be compared to the NEXO so ...

    - With the exprience, you do again this choice? ..

    Yes if it possible to silent by SUB 2 heads, for three full system (AC becomes CHER)
    Even to the pro 15 or less like heads that open 45 degrees for small venues ..

    Hi
    I had the opportunity to listen to this on a Systm concernt outdoors last weekend in the north.
    I was in the corner I saw a poster and I hop to see the concert,
    tonn and curious to see a line array on a local concert with local artists I jubilant advance

    least when I heard the sound!

    I felt here, I prcise j'tais as spectator and as usual it is I who am the glue rgy for once I could apprcier a concert audience

    I take into account that it is a small well Systm sre

    the door about 15/20 meters before falling

    the tonal balance yuck

    no down no impact in the bass does not drop a mass
    the top bin of the spectrum and I wonder if there's a BEYOND 6kHz not without laughing…

    no down no impact in the bass does not drop a mass
    the top bin of the spectrum and I wonder if there's a BEYOND 6kHz not without laughing even near the treble does not exist

    the medium as on many line array is not trs agresif and wants quiet except for adamson! lol

    I know see

    and mix the egg together do not talk about

    srement while the system was poorly or not at all hold

    I silent deue

    snif

    I even saw a sondier move the arbor under which it is understood by thinking up the spectrum

    of the drummer has played down any clipe compresses sucks yuck

    a snare METALLIC

    the nasal voice and back

    good voilbr />

    Received 3 times on this system, 2 times in the config of the photo, and 1 time with 18''sub Martin and more.

    For details:

    A festival-1000 people indoors (gymnasium) with sub Martin: Very painfully 93dbA 92 to the control and fortunately I had the martin for the low, the rest was out of breath



    -A room of 300 people: 95dbA the governance system of breath



    -An outdoor festival with 1000 people on site and existing relatively large at about 25 30 meters: 90 dbA phew 85dBA at max wide governance and a system that can not stand it anymore.



    So what to say, well not much except that this system is a disaster. And I just found out the cost: it is simply amazing.

    -An outdoor festival with 1000 people on site and existing relatively large at about 25 30 meters: 90 dbA phew 85dBA at max wide governance and a system that can not stand it anymore.



    So what to say, well not much except that this system is a disaster. And I just found out the cost: it is simply amazing.



    Let's start with the sub: it is soft as can be, no potato and no dynamic filtering relatively high for my taste. So we end up with a spray sound more than a real sub. However it sends strong enough, but it does not. The infrastructure simply does not exist, its frequency "reference" is rather 80HZ 100HZ making mobile disco cons is nice but too bad on the live ...



    For heads ale ale, a medium very ugly and very "lumpy", a big worry to 800Hz and 250Hz to another, as the impact is not severe soft

    Acute level it seems that a high-cut filter is placed on the system, it does not rise to acute and can there in the system are relatively aggressive and hurt the ears. In short, a disaster on a Hit Hat or on OH.



    The processor I think it's the plant that is completely HK, at least for the live. The compressor limiter prevents dynamic sound and sealed as soon as you can fit one in the bazaar. One is left with a sound meaningless and a dynamic close to 0. And every time I played with, that feeling came back, it seems that the system is out of breath and is at the limit of cracked (a small disto installs on top of that) . It's really painful is especially ugly.



    Level range say 15 meters every break, after that decent arrow. So for a line array system with 4 boxes (actually 2! Besides, I do not understand these boxes 2 in 1) per side .... it is breathtaking.



    To summarize:

    A system that does not, a food processor you full dynamic range, tonal balance really bad, no infrastructure, no musicality, it does not ring .... not for the short live.



    And strictly (that will explain the mr before!) Incomparable with Nexo Geo, Adamson, Meyer, D & B, acoustic, and very far behind the RCF, Db technology and KME.



    In short dear friend (s) technician (ne) s fly touring sound system, providers and dear friends head to something that works =)



    Used mainly as you can have much better systems

    8 + 4 SX18 SX SUB Adamson Proc + amp for 16,000 euros and the Hk is completely eaten the same level increased. (Though it is a system called trad)



    even better 14 Geo S + 6 CD 12 + amp Nexo processor + bumper + Complete Kit for 24000 euros (the HK is behind places in 1000)



    Brief prefer buying a good used system and forget the HK because it is really bad

    and for me it will now be denied on my sheets (after 3 attempts catastrophic can say that it comes from the system)



    I put a lot of sound because it still makes a pretty and light blue on the back.

    For how long have you been using it?
    it is now almost two years. With minimal care and maintenance, it is easy to keep a system comparable over time.

    Did you try many other models before getting this one?
    Yes, before I had the projector, still in HK. Lour very, very cumbersome ... Nothing to do with this system there.
    Easy to use, a very decent weight, many adjustment possibilities.

    What is your opinion about the value for the price?
    A bit expensive but it is damped quickly because there's no need to be numerous (Road) to the meter and move up.

    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

    I think it's a sound that is very suitable for small groups (orchestras, DJ ...) for playing in large rooms and even small field. Successful evenings, the sound quality of happiness and smiles!
