Amazing Highs and Mids

This is the most amazing speaker I have ever heard when it comes to high and mid frequencies. The sounds in that spectrum take on a truly meta-dimensional flavor. What I mean is that you will flip your lid listening to anything with trippy sounds in it. Worth the price. The bass is lacking - not as good as any 8" studio monitor, but just add a sub and you are in heaven.

Amazing little speaker

First impression was WOW! That's a lot of superclean volume from such a small speaker. I'm using this as my keyboard monitor on stage, and it is perfect for the task. Got rid of my QSC K12 in favor of the Turbosound. Much smoother sound, better response curve, and more power. The DSP is really nice to have. Limiter, eq-ing, and auto feedback rejection are the important parts for most of us out there in the trenches (clubs and restaurants). I highly recommend this speaker, and Sweetwater.
Music background: Professional keyboardist for 40 years.

crystal clear frequency response

Easily managed speaker with a tight transient response and respectable volume
