Summary: Big and Loud the speakers just pump out the volume all night. Being a 3-way design, the vocals sit mostly on the mid-range speaker, which make for clearly heard lyrics. Keyboards sound great through this PA. They are big and heavy. Recommended for permanent or semi installed venues.
Summary: My newfound love! I've been a professional live engineer for about 11 years doing this as a full time job! I run a AV company doing anywhere from small bar/ wedding gigs to gigs over 5,000 people, I really wanted to write this review because when I bought these speakers there were only DJ reviews on it. So when i purchased these i was quit nervous about buying them blind for a live band situation and not being able to test them first.
Summary: I was very pleased with the sound and experience with zzounds.com. The problem didn't come until packing up my KW153 speakers at after a DJ session and found the plastic power plug recepticle on the back of the speaker broken. I had the speakers less than 2 months and QSC said sorry we do not cover anything on the outside of the case but if you send them away we will repair them. They have no repair centers within 250 miles from me. I never had this with Peavey.
Summary: These speakers sound amazing. Great quality, however I did notice a few issues with speaker box itself. It looked like a corner piece by the grill was broken off and repaintedmover (must've happened at the factory because it was repainted With the same paint). Aside from that, excellent build quality. I have these paired with 2 Yorkville LS801PB's and it's perfect. Worth every penny, don't forget the covers.
Summary: I just hope that this speaker lasts a long time cause I'm really impressed with everything about it. I looked at a lot of speakers before finally buying these and I'm glad that I didn't go with my first choices.
