- How long have you been using it?
I've been using it for one year.

- Which feature do you like the most / the least?
Output power
All in one (half three-voices speaker)

Weight (you'll break your back if you try to carry it alone. Not designed to be transported by one person)
High frequencies (imprecise highs. No details)
Mid frequencies (where are they?... Stop dreaming: the 15" speakers produce only low frequencies)
No protection corners

- Did you try any other models before buying it?
An Electro-Voice speaker that was over 20 years old
Hi-fi speakers (B&W, Infinity, Technics, ...)
Mackie SRM450 (V1)

- How would you rate its value for money?
Very good All in one. Very low price. The quality is on the same level as the price. The cabinet's wood is a bit fragile. No corners. Cloth covering tends to come off. Nevertheless, the product is ok for mobile disco applications!

- Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?
If I could choose again, I would buy a pair of JRX 115 plus a subwoofer. Do take the weight into account!!!

- Other
The speaker is ok for dance music. For vocal reinforcement, choose another product!
I use them as P.A. in bars, dance shows in sport halls or birthday parties. They work very well for these applications! However, the JRX 115 is a better choice if you want to fly the system!
I replaced the tweeter with an EV driver. An active crossover would be better to get a really good sound.

Considering the price, this speaker has punch!
