I have tortured myself over what to buy for 3 months and when these arrived I was worried about being disappointed. However moment they were plugged in they produced the sweetest, cleanest sound I have heard in 30 years of playing in bands. Using them in a blues/60's outfit and so far have tried them with vocals, acoustic guitar Straight into desk, Telecaster through tube amp and mic to desk, and harmonica via vocal mic. Absolutely superb response, amazing bass from a 12 inch, though I will add subs for bigger gigs when we mic up the drums and bass guitar. Can't fault them and would buy them again if I lost them.
