    Great for the $$$$$$

    I purchased these from Luke Herian Ext. 1236. I used these for an install job for a small local church, They only needed monitors for their 5 vocalist's, so I bought a pair of these for them. The first day I plugged them in without an E.Q.. After a ten minute sound check, every vocalist was blown away by these. No need to add an E.Q. for this situation. They have plenty of power and are clear. I am only running vocals thru these, If you need to run instruments, I would highly recommend the 15" version. For vocals only, these do the job with NO COMPLAINTS. Well worth the money.

    Really good for the money

    Never compare monitors to mains. These speakers are fine for monitoring and are clear and loud enough for most applications. Peavey stuff in general is my favorite bargain for live music. If you're going to spend much money on monitors, get an ear system. Hopefully, you get to individually mix for the musicians who are in front of each monitor separately so they can emphasise the parts they need to focus on. Monitors are designed for short throw. That's what you want because you're only a few feet away. That's why mains make terrible monitors and vice versa. They would work as mains for a really small place like coffee shops and deck parties. 12" seem best for guitar and vocals while the 15" do a better job if you need the full band. But I really recommend cutting the vocal reverb off or anything else effect wise so I you can perform. Many vocalists are afraid of how their voice sounds naturally but they'll get used to it. Trust the front of the house speakers to deliver to the main mix to the audience. I do wish they had the attenuation they used to have so daisy chained monitors could individually contol volume. That's why I gave e these a four out of five.

    I am a classic & southern rock musican. I've had these monitors for about a month now. They are clear & sound great, and I have used other name brands of monitors. They are very basic without anything fancy. For the price, they are a good deal compared to other monitors that are of camparible value. Only worry is that I am used to a monitor built with thicker wood, but these seem sturdy enough---I don't jump on them!!! Only bummer is that they are not American made, they are made in China. Pretty common now-a-days, but there are still a few other brands currently made in USA...but give it time!!!

    The truth

    If you already have a low end PA then these are fine. When put next to a decent set of main speakers, these sound like they're as cheap as they cost. We use 15 year old Peavey SP5Gs as our mains, and these monitors sound like crap compared to the mains. Even though they have a 15" woofer, there is virtually no bottom end. To be effective as a monitor, monitor speaker cabs need to be able to faithfully recreate the sound that is coming out of the mains. these aren't even close. Spend the extra $150 per cab and get better monitors.
