Want absolutely astounding sound and fair price? T10 with a pair of R65 - BOOM! (literally)
Im not bashing JBL. They obviously produce decent gear on the high end, however their entry level gear might not live up to the JBL name. I swapped out my JBL305 and JBL LSR310S after some reoccurring peculiar sound issue on the 305s and somewhat under power sub for a 10". They seemed great for the price at the time, but live and learn you get what you pay for I guess. More disappointed than expected after trying to love them. JBL at this level seemed sub par for detailed playback on a variety of mixes and poor sound keyboards and guitar directly connected. I repurposed them them for computer speakers and that seems to be the best fit as the sound tends to be more enhanced rather than flat. Gamer's delight perhaps.
Basically, I simply wanted something better that would not break the bank. I recently read some reviews on gear in my price range, so I finally decided to upgrade Temblor T10 paired with the Prosonus R65. Wow! Wow! Wow! For about $1K* total ( *call Sweetwater) I cant believe the detail of sound and clarity I was missing. Exceptional sound and quality at a such a fair price. The low end frequency of the T10 delivers surprisingly clean and extremely detailed beyond my expectations with out any boomy or flabby sound. If you need to go very low the T10 has the power to shake the paint off the walls if you like that sort of thing. But for the purist and audio critics, the T10 paired with the R65's "honest" AMT tweeter is just stunning pure clarity in every range with. You dont need to spend thousands+ to get the sound this combo delivers at a fraction. That's all I really wanted and Presonus delivered.
I know this sounds like a pitch but I dont work for Sweetwater of Presonus. I really don't care where or what you buy, Im just happy with my choice and wanted to share a my purchase process and great sound experience. Rock on!
