Very Tight low end! For a powered speaker, i don't think that you will be able to find a better one. I just ran my first outdoor festival with these this weekend and they covered about 400 people with 2 328s on top and 2 18s subs on the bottom. If i could have changed anything, I would have had 2 more subs. Other than that, there is not another powered speaker that you could compare these to. These are more transparent than any other speaker I've ever heard.
