i bought this item after i was impressed by the powered version. Again as with the other powered version, the build quality is really good and the overall sound is matched to the powered version. It uses a speakon cable to connect with an amp or powered speaker, this is great as alot of modern amps and speakers use speakon, but i feel the speaker would be more versatile if it had a jack input option as well. The ability to have control of the speaker volume would give this item a 5 star rating, this could either be on the powered version or if possible on the passive version. I would recommend this and i will be purchasing more of these soon.
Only used mine once, but for 8 hours straight without a hitch. Had a little feedback here and there from these, but I put that to the singer moving about. Fixed with a little EQ on the side of the active one. Definitely recommend for full bands!
