AmazingThe QSC KW122 is one of the best sounding speakers on the market. The K12's are awesome too but these speakers have a lot more headroom and sound "richer". I would highly suggest them for just about any situation. I used them at a wedding this weekend and played to a crowd of 220 with no subs. They were plenty loud and had tons of headroom left. Even with a two way design the mids come out punchy and clean. You can hear every instrument and vocals clearly and plenty of bass. I would expect to pay double for this type of quality. Oh and by the way, they are made in the USA.

Best in it's classI purchased (6) of these for a highschool theater. Out of the box they are the best sounding speakers I've used shy of Meyer. I ultimately purchased (8) for myself along with (2) KW181 subs with Cloud 9 covers. I don't think you can buy a better sounding self powered speaker for the money. Lots of patching options on the rear. the VCA option is great for installs where you want to mount a wall volume remote. Truly a great box.

Great speakerDo not be scared of the price tag on this one...It's worth every penny.
This is one versatile speaker. Fly it, pole it (built in 7.5 degree tilt), use it as a monitor wedge or use it as a stand alone 2 channel system. Even installed with remote gain. It has plenty of power for use as mains on a mid sized PA. The sound...crystal clear. Couple them with a kw-118 (or 2) and you have a hell of a system. Oh and don't forget the 5 year warranty!
I took off a half star because the finish is not the most durable. The paint chips easily. So make sure to buy the gig bags if you are using this as a mobile PA rig.
