Big box with a big sound.
DJs4Hire, 14.07.2019
I've owned 4 of these for about a year as a mobile DJ.

I brought these speakers without hearing them or knowing much about them. In short summary: I'm impressed! The truth is that I've only used all 4 speakers a few times... most of the time I only need one or two.

Good points: They're well built, simple to use and operate. They're LOUD and the throw of sound is exceptional. Price wise, they are incredible value.

Bad points: The handles are rubbish and placed awkwardly, in my opinion. The paint is not hard wearing and flakes easily.

Summary: Covers and wheels are an absolute must have! They are big and heavy speakers, but also super loud! Horn loaded speakers have a 'honky' tone to them and might be an acquired taste for dance music playback, but they do have a definite advantage over reflex cabinets, in that the bass is audible much further away in a venue. Consider 'The Box' Double 18" speakers for a rounder/deeper bass.

Good but tech knowledge is needed!

doing it in english rather than dutch for convenience (international audience)

So let me begin with saying they're huge (a folded horn subwoofer trait), the wheels are a must!

Hooking them up at home (25m2) resulted in a poor response under 40hz, another trait of horn loaded subwoofers when put in a small room

in a big (ball)room they are awesome, you will get chest thumping tight dry bass in the 40-80hz range, you really don't want them to run above 80hz and not under 35hz, so an audio processor comes in handy

i put them on a 35hz-75hz crossover and for the 0-35 hz a steep cutoff, these boxes really don't want to run 30hz or lower without nasty unloading symptoms and port noise when running high load.

actual db/SPL rating with above crossover setting is 127db/SPL 1 meter MEASURED, very respectable for the price, listed db/SPL is not reachable without blowing them up.

so in short, very good, needs an Audio processor and i must say the handles are not satisfactory, that's why 4 stars
