These monitors have a small footprint and are light enough to carry without any trouble. I push them with a QSC GX5 (also from Sweetwater) and it's a great matchup. Not a lot of low end but that is a good thing. Monitors should sound clear without heavy lows or shrill highs. The balanced sound is perfect for my ears. All Yamaha Club series speakers are high end at a moderate price. You can spend less but in the end you get what you pay for and these Yamaha speakers will never let you down. I love them. I gotta thank Sean Geyer (1688) for helping me choose the right gear. He is always helpful and seems to really appreciate my business.
