Outstanding!Galaxy has always produced outstanding compact speakers and this one is no exception. Lightweight and powerful with very good 3 band tone control. Perfect monitor design for the working Solo performer, or Duo or Trio for that matter. Don't understand why anyone would try to power a passive speaker with the thru output of this monitor but oh well. If you need a monitor for the intimate gigs, this is the one.

Very pleased!We have actually bought 2 of these (one for our pianist, and the other for our keyboard player) for our church praise band. The musicians have been more than pleased with amount of volume they create plus their clarity.

Hot SpotI like it. Sorry I spent the money on the in ear monitor. They just don't work for me. This works perfectly. As a bonus, I had a a'wallpaper gig" the day after I bought it, and actually used it for the main speaker system. Perfect. Great value for the amount spent.

Great Little MonitorI own three PA6S. They sound much better than the Mackie or TC Helicon monitors/speakers of similar design. Yes, I tested them side-by-side. A signing drummer for a band I mix regularly loves it. Every vocalist that I've used them with, in appropriate applications, has loved them. I even used a pair as PA/Monitors for my electronic drum kit for an indoor house party.
I use LO-2b/QK-2B quick release to mounts on mic stands to lessen wear and tear on the cabinet.
This speaker is not even listed under "monitors" or in the Hot Spot family on Galaxy's web site. Nothing in the product description or pictures indicates that an unpowered speaker can be driven from this unit. RTFM.

Galaxy PA6sI have been using Galaxy Monitors for many years. I recently purchased the PA6s, thinking I could use it to power a daisy chain of 2 additonal non-powered Galaxy Monitors. WOW, was I shocked to find out that this pricey flagship design powered monitor did not even include a powered output. In past models Galaxy had provided this feature... and it was a useful one. The sound quality is great and if you only need only one monitor, maybe this will work for you. Seems like Galaxy would like to force their customer to have to purchase additonal more expensive powered monitors needlessly. One simple but important omission in the products features really diminished it's value.

galaxy makes good gear but beware of this oneThis new model does NOT have the extension speaker jack, so it CANNOT POWER A HOT SPOT or any other unpowered extension speaker! Like the Macke product, it only has an underamplified pass thru output. They want you to buy multiple powered amps and chain them. Do not buy this product to replace the earlier model if that is you intention or if you want to use it as a small PA. It is a tiny self contained unit now that will not integrate.
