An amplified sound system for electronic drums and can therefore withstand the low frequencies as acute.

The use may be working in an apartment or sound with electronic drums in small rooms type bar but after several tries, the system can serve returns, hi fi or even sound to a voice in a small room.

The subwoofer has two functions is in "low" mode and sound "normal". Both have advantages and incovénients. Mode "low" can distinguish the bass drum and bass relief on the speakers, but this method lacks power to push a little less than the amount which is not very natural to listen because we the feeling of being overwhelmed low. In fact the sound in "sound normal" is more powerful but the bass is dispersed both the small speakers and subwoofer but eventually this function is more natural to listen.

The sound is quite clear and precise, There are over a three-band equalizer that can correct frequency.

I use it for a year and a half sporadically, because I wanted a sound with electronic drums for concerts but there's nothing like an acoustic drum because the approach is not very natural, but when you have no choice we live in an apartment that's the case.

What I like most about this system is that it may well serve as a hi fi sound system, returns for concerts as its ability to collect bass and treble remains important.

The least is that the sound does not measure up to real drums, and finally it is the usual criticism of the electronics and batteries I already knew. Also mix a battery with a low or a track is quite tricky because the frequencies are mixed, we must assign it to one instrument for clarity.

I had already tried a system of greater power, but we find the same problems already mentioned.

The value for money: cheap but actually quite profitable because it can be used in several contexts.

I do it again this choice because there is not much amplified systems at this price that can withstand the sounds of a drum machine.
