Little alien with little weaknesses

Mike T., 04.03.2014
The system comes in 2 packets, which is not apparent at first sight on the box of the subs. If the second package is then placed in a different package, the search for the top parts begins, which is further advanced by the fact that the package of the subs also contains the front panels for it.
Once you have unpacked all the boxes, you basically have a few solid boxes in your hand. Haptically they make a good impression.

Let's get to the detail description of the top parts:

Compact and yet stable, they make a good impression. The housings are cleanly processed and have a Speako connection on the back as well as 2 screw holes for mounting holders. A small tripod flange is installed on the underside. Nothing for standard tripods - the tops would be too small.
The front panel (from the sub-cardboard box) can be mounted as an option using the enclosed Velcro adhesive. This is poor quality solved. No idea how long the glue will hold, but I do not like it. In addition, the small crotch rings on the film to be peeled do not have a crease, so that this is to be pulled off with a finger nail. In this case, this film is so thin and strong that damage to the adhesive side can almost be ruled out.

Now to Sub:

Like the top parts, the Sub makes a good quality impression.
For my copy only the texture could have been a bit more tidy. At the "air outlet" of the subs can be seen a clear lacquer / color approach, calculated at a point that falls in the eye. Error in detail.

Equipped with numerous connections, the sub allows the installation at home in the pub and / or elsewhere. A signal should always "get in".
But why do I pack all the connectors and the black cooling ribs on the side of the case? The ribs I could still understand as a design element, but why should the cables always protrude laterally into the space. That looks very unpleasant. This is the design advantage for me completely. If I place the sub transversely, I look in front of a white wooden plate and, depending on the distance, I must also deal with possible frequency cancellation. Fail.

To the sound:

It comes out what is going on. Boxes can not conjure up, and certainly not improve quality music. Have the boxes only with "preserve" tested and found for ok. The tops are for me in proportion to the sub somewhat weakly fired. The whole system is very bass-heavy - but this also shows that the sub does its work well. If you like, you can have your candles blown out in the evening. For all others, however, the sub is only a little twisted. With a little try, however, everyone should be able to adjust his or her taste. The rest can be controlled on the console or computer.

Switching the system on and off is unfortunately (depending on the configuration) not without a loud switching noise in the boxes. Here it is: Before the On / Off constantly the Mastervolume regulate. This is annoying, especially if the system is to be installed.

What else has occupied me ...

Why do the heads have only one Speakon connector? Especially with a wall installation would be the use of a smaller plug (Speakon plus cable - since it is already wall-tight) and especially smaller cable.

The sub or the output stage responds very sensitively to cell phone signals. Perhaps the shield can be improved. Everyone knows this rhythmic ticking of the phones in loudspeakers, but here I felt it as extreme.

For finer audio settings, a small EQ would be desirable.

Summary:

For the price the system is absolutely recommendable. It does what it is supposed to do and it does it well. The design is good, but is tarnished by minor negligence. The processing is good, the sound with some setting as well.

What I would wish for ...
... a Bluetooth receiver in the sub.
