Price / offer: Very good

eventplusmedia, 22.07.2017
When unpacking the box is valuable. Nice compact, not too heavy and not too light. Very good, I think that the front panel goes over the whole box. Other plastic boxes are depleted by the open horn in monitor operation, but here everything fits.
So very kippelig I can not find the narrow monitor slope. Well, walking to the box and the rocker does not go, of course, but that is more for 15s wedges of wood ... and a musician should also make an impression first of all through his music and not by the pose o)
Hopefully, the black plastic remains long unscratched! The grips are stable, nice grip and rubberized, the Hochständer flange should not make any problems and flying lugs can also be mounted - with the well-known 10er plastic Böxchen I found the so far because of lack of performance however exaggerated.

So far. Because the dB make neat pressure for 10-inch. 1200W come out probably not audible out, but with appropriate sub can be with a couple certainly well 200 people Disco-sonic, without subwoofer it is enough in my opinion for almost every imaginable monitor application or acoustic pubs. In the Rockmusik-Proberaum, the vocal can also help with the help of the Opera 10 against the basin thunder of the drummer.

The clean, direct sound impressed me, especially the clear and silky heights I had not expected.
If one hears the box in "monitor distance", one can boil uniformly up to the volume level "unbearable". Only then does it slowly begin to sound like soft plastic. A few millimeters more material strength would give the Opera 10 even more power. However, the whine is quite high, we are almost already in the volume range of a 12 inch Mackie SRM450 ... and without Mackie noise.

Conclusion:
The Opera 10 is visually and acoustically unobtrusive and sounds for a plastic box of this price class surprisingly loud and linear. For me it fits as PA as a theater, as a monitor on a coverband stage or with subwoofer in the DJ cutlery.
With the easy-to-use DSP and the flexibly controllable inputs, the box is versatile and allows even smaller applications without a mixing console.

Musical jack of all trades!

mix4munich, 04.07.2018
A speaker box is first a speaker box, but with the db technologies Opera 10 you can really do a lot! Originally, I was looking for a box to use for training yoga. This requires a well-sounding box with two inputs, usually using a headset mic and a source to play music, typically a smartphone that hangs on the box via a stereo to mono adapter. Two inputs, separately controllable and switchable in sensitivity: Check!

Loud, the box does not have to be, just sound clean and pleasant, without having to crank around first. This requirement also met the Opera 10 with flying colors.

In addition, the box should serve as a monitor in quite normal concerts of rock, pop and Soulbands. Thanks also to the housing format.

And since I'm a bassist, the box should serve as a bassbox on stage. For my acoustic rock band, which plays rather quietly, an Opera 10 is enough for that, as we tried out. With my other band playing much louder, I've used two of the Opera 10 for it. Thanks to the output, I can easily loop through the signals. The second box I use on line sensitivity and 0 dB level, at the first I go with instrument level in the second input and regulate there the volume of the entire system. The output must be configured so that it passes the signal of both inputs to the output, because it is also possible to restrict this to the forwarding of input 1.

In addition, I could then use the two speakers as Aktivmontore, in addition to the bass signal and amplify my Montorsignal. The box was wired for a gig, but when my bandmates were on their monitors, I heard them loud enough, so they did not need a monitor anymore.

In the rock band, the two Opera 10 replace a Warwick 6 * 10er box, which can deliver quite a punch. Since the speakers are in front of me and at least in the rehearsal room of my band colleagues shine away, I can listen to a really loud bass, and the colleagues it is pleasant - not too loud. With the normal abssamp I would have blown away the colleagues, I would have set him so loud.

The conclusion after the rehearsal is, I have never had such a good and clear bass sound in the rehearsal room. Everything from very low to very high, I hear my play like under a magnifying glass, which is very useful to judge your own performance. Behind the Opera 10, with my bandmates, the bass is still good to hear, but not as loud as at my position. I am very pleased.

The colleagues have the change from the Warwick bass system (85 kg total weight) on the two Opera 10 (25 kg total weight) at least not noticed. "Was not your Bassamp something?" was the question of Drumemr after the rehearsal. No, he was not. He is shut down.

In all these tests I have not even used the rotary switch on the back, which allows you to select different sound settings for different applications via DSP. So you can adjust the sound to the use as a monitor for voice or music plus various sound characteristics for use as a PA box set. I did not try that, I like the attitude "Flat" already very well.

So, good sound, a variety of uses, considerable volume, different tunable sound characteristics, and in addition there is a pleasing appearance with a continuous front grille and foam behind it - this looks much more discreet than most modern plastic speakers with an open horn. So you could also use for small weddings or gala, if you use a subwoofer. But even without sub, but just a little quieter, you can reproduce with this box pretty deep reaching basses. Techno and other forms of electronic music, although I exclude times, but for almost all natural sounds, this box low enough down. My absolute recommendation, I have two of them and will not hesitate to ask for more if I need more.
