Excellent vocal monitor
Review by The Company Band
However, after a year we upgraded in early May to the ZXA1s from Mackie TH-12s as our stage monitors. We use 2 as side-fill for the vocalists up front, and 3 on the floor to cover the 5 musicians. We rotated the horn on the floor monitors (and the logo, so we can tell them apart!) and the coverage is great.
Plenty of volume at 800w, and the clarity is excellent. If you're going to roll off most your low end, anyway, these are a no-brainer. And with the current promotion at $400, it's even better.
We did buy the E/V padded covers ($39 each) to keep from scratching them. A nice investment, and a classy look.
Highly recommended by one happy gigging band in Cincinnati! (Posted on 5/31/12)
