Excerpt: The speaker needs full coverage. The Bottom of the speaker is not covered. Instead there is a small strap with velcro. Already scratched the bottom of the speaker while placing them on concrete.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Quality Construction
Excerpt: I use these in a band practice room. Very loud and clean. They are easy to move and place in the room because of their compact size. The 12 inch woofer is perfect for vocals with plenty of low end to spare. I also play acoustic guitar through them. Crystal clear with no breakup.
Excerpt: I use this speaker for rehearsals and small gigs as well as a monitor for larger shows. With a second speaker this can be a front of house speaker for nearly any size gig. I plug my mic and acoustic directly into the Yamaha and get amazing sound and versatility. Highly recommended.
Pros: Amazing sound, Easy to use, Portable, Sonically Versatile
Summary: I'm impressed - I've used top-end pro speakers for over 20 years. Having powered speakers adds to the setting up time in gigs, but not a great deal. So far I am very pleased with the DXR12's; they sound very musical and well balanced even when cranked up.
