Very good unit, little bit hard to get used to.

Wezzy-K, 24.10.2017
Dear Customer,

I have bought 2 of these units here, and one was already used last week on a major event. I will give my opinion about the unit right now:

Positive points:
- Clever design (Places for wheels, etc etc.)
- Easy to connect.
- Great punch of sound (Even when you put it on the lowest volume)
- Easy to move (If you install 4 wheels on the unit).

Negative points:
- A bit hard to first understand how to switch between the cross over, volume and frequencies of the unit. But you need to really practice with it for the sound that fits your gig. If you eventually got it, it is a brilliant unit with a very clear sound and a good punch.

Regards,

Wes.

Top Sub

DJ Danny, 01.02.2018
I run a single 8003 AS II to support two powerful 15-inch fullrange speakers. This constellation is optimal, as this SUB plays very deep and powerful and complements the audio spectrum down. That means audible bass is available anyway, but there was a lack of pressure at the bottom. For someone who only has 12 inch tops or little full-range capable tops, I would advise to another sub (15's or eg 905 AS to stay with RCF). The 8003 series tends to play in the lower sub-range (30-80 Hz), and it could result in awkward mixing of systems lacking mid-bass / kick bass (80-150 Hz). Therefore, it is better to hear samples with corresponding or comparable top parts. Please do not disregard the size and weight of the SUB? (Add 4 Kg with rollers).
Should anyone have difficulty in making decisions between 8003 and 8004, I can say the following. The not to be neglected price difference is mainly due to the more expensive and more complex construction of the 8004 series. Better wood, better body (unscrew the front grille and look inside).
Positive:
- Solid bass foundation at acceptable weight
- Top DSP with very useful PA presets
- Latest technology for drivers and amp
- Conventional (fanless cooling)
Negative:
- No ON / OFF switch
- protruding front grille prevents the tops of the tops from being pulled up during transport
- much too expensive protective covers
