Versatility

dd, 14.02.2017
I just bought this set for its modularity and design "Array"

I tested (checking out unpacking) all in my living room (30m2):
1. "ES" type editing and test with my daughter's Fender F-1020S guitar,
2. Complete assembly by connecting the smartphone to the line inputs via an DI box.
The levels (gain, main volume and low) are set to zero on the master subwoofer. The sound is warm without excess. The basses are present but without excess. It does not have to fade in front of HiFi systems.

Then I transferred a part in the studio (5m2). I then configured it type "AVS" with the cables "Cable 2" purchased in addition. It serves as a second listening system to judge the rendering of my work on anything other than the monitor (Presonus Eris E5) and the DT 770 Pro and other two-ball headphones;). I now have a complementary system. In one day I have already been able to improve some mixes on which I was fishing a bit.

I wait more than the opportunity to install the complete system at a concert to broadcast, for example, the sound of a synth. Used to replace acoustic instruments (harpsichord, organ) when these are not available in the representation room.

I have not tested this set before the purchase I based on the opinions gleaned here where there on the internet of which this very complete article [LINK]

What I like most is its modularity, its ease of use and the simplicity of its adjustments its apparent strength (the satellites have an aluminum structure)

What I appreciate the least its mass, but do not expect better. To solve this problem I added the accessories of transport (trolley for the boxes and bag for the satellites). Thanks to Thomann for thinking about creating a Bundle.

Pleasant warm, no pressure

01.01.2016
I have planned this system for small to medium-sized events, voice announcements up to 250 and disco up to 150 people. I just like it very much. The design is fast and uncomplicated and for the first test the built-in Bluetooth receiver was a great thing. Also the sound could really excite me in my apartment.
The first small drawbacks are when I pack the bass in the accompanying bags (must be ordered) noticed. The inlay is connected to the outer walls only at 2 small places at the upper edge. This means that the basses are uniting together and it takes a little fiddling until it fits properly. The handles on the bass are, however, very well placed, so that they can be lifted well. Day connection cable of the two base is a 5-pin xlr. Since most 5-pin Dmx cables are only 3-pin, however, it is not so easy to get an extension or a replacement. Was in 3 well-known stores in Berlin and no one could help me.
All led the curve500.

First use: children's performance 30 protagonists, 70 spectators, 250m2 hotel room, 5m ceiling height, very dry medium volume.

The loudspeakers were barely seen next to the stage and I was asked several times whether this really is the entire sound system. I was excited.
After the VA I have made a short AB comparison to a Bose S1 with a simple Basmodul and the sound sounded much warmer and more pleasant.
However, I have to give her to reach the same volume significantly more levels.

2nd event: disco with singing insert, 60 pax, 100m2, parquet 2.50m ceiling height

Because of the low ceiling I used only 3 top part per side. Probably a mistake.
The pressure on the dance floor was simply not there, the singer hardly came over her playback, had to pull down the music strongly and I always had the feeling it was missing steam. Headroom equal to 0. Had to drive at the clipping limit to get some fun on the dance floor. The first positive impression was gone.
It is impossible to think of a sounding of 150 dancers.

I give the system next week again a chance, there I am a trio with world music all 17 hippies in a very hally location. But I will plan a replacement PA already. If this also fails, she goes back again.

Supplement: she went back again. With the band I have not tried it yet. The I then then sonicated with evox 8.
All in all, you can say to the pa that they sound really great if you stay in the middle volume range. It can not provide pressure.
