Excellent compact PA that puts others to shame
FastEddy, 05.08.2015
I get to experience a lot of PA systems, working in live sound professionally as well as being a musician in my spare time, from large-scale to small. As a result, I have a reasonable base from which to pass judgement, and in this case it is very positive. Where house systems have been unavailable I have gigged numerous small-scale options, including taking one or active tops (Meyer, RCF etc.) and a small mixer, or and AER amp or a smaller Peavey setup, or even a floor wedge in small bars to provide sound reinforcement etc. I've also tried similar systems to this from HK Audio and also the Bose Line array systems. I found that the Dave 10 really nailed it in terms of affordability (this bundle is excellent value), and sound quality, whilst still being very portable.
For solo gigs, you can't really go wrong with this; it's compact enough to get into a small car boot along with everything else, and takes only 2 trips to shift all of the tops, sub, stands etc. In smaller places, monitoring from the speakers rather than with a discrete floor wedge is made easier by the built-in tilt mounts, and the dispersion from the speakers seems quite wide compared to anything other than some of the line arrays. What Bose's L1 gains in dispersion, it loses in projection IMO as the drivers are not actually aligned in an array per se, being angled out. As such, I found that this system was equally as good in terms of projection.
You'll find the sub is reasonably light to carry, (unless you're only used to shifting Class D amps), but still manages to have a reasonable amount of power to it. I play a stomp block in addition to guitar and vocals, so the sub was the main element I found myself deliberating over as to whether it would be powerful enough. To be honest, in anything over a 150 person venue at full tilt this system will struggle to provide masses of thump, but that's to be expected - we're already talking much higher levels of bass than I ever got out of a 2.0 system, even with 15inch RCF Art 722 speakers. What this system does provide though is a very balanced (and adjustable) response for most small / modest rooms/clubs/bars/small function rooms etc.
I use an Allen & Heath mixer to feed this, and my guitar has the original Taylor Expression System, the sound of which I know very well. Something that excluded many other solutions for me was the noticeable sonic imprint (not a desirable one) that they imparted. The Dave 10 seems more transparent to me, unless driving it hard. As with a lot of active systems, there is automatic limiter/compression DSP that you can hear cutting in when reaching the limits of what can be driven in and out of the amps. This is especially noticeable as mix pumping when I use the stomp block. That said, there have only been a couple of times I have run into this, and they've been in larger venues full of noisy people where I'd have been better equipped with the Dave 15 or similar. The onboard compression is a little too hasty for my taste at these higher levels, but those that don't use additional signal processing for vocals and acoustic guitar earlier in the signal path probably won't notice it so much. Anyway, this is a relatively minor gripe, as the majority of the time you are not operating at this level.
The bundled stand and speak-on cables add value to an already affordable system, and I have used these without hesitation at numerous gigs. Speaker stands are like tank traps for drunk people, and at least one of them has been fallen on and the legs weren't bent out of shape. I call that a pass. It's worth getting the speaker covers, as the although I really appreciate the lack of ABS plastic as a construction material (it visually cheapens equipment dramatically to me), the painted finish can come off when bashed during transport. I keep a black paint touch-up pen in my kit.

All in all, I can't believe the price these are going for, and I recommend people check these out in comparison with some of the more expensive options, as I was surprised. It's never going to beat an active Meyer system that is 4 times the cost, but it's not designed to. Spec the right system for the job, and you won't regret it.

Great bundle
engree, 11.07.2014
Really impressed with this bundle. Considering you get the cables and stands thrown in for free makes this a no-brainer. The speaker set is amazing value for money and very compact. The cables are very long so no need to buy extra cables. The stands are great too. They come with their own bag and are lightweight. Set-up is very easy, all I had to do was plug in my mixing desk, top speakers and mains lead to the sub woofer. I could fully recommend this set. It gives plenty volume for a small pub, maybe even a bit bigger if it's just you and piano or a guitar.

The only thing that I would have expected and wasn't there was a UK mains lead. I had to cut the plug off and replace it with a standard UK plug as I didn't want to use an adapter. Saying that it does work with a standard kettle lead but that won't have a lock system. I also bought the cover and trolley set to go with this to protect and transport. I think this was worth the extra but you could find alternatives yourself.

I have now used it for several gigs and was very pleased to see people coming up to me after to have a look at my sound system as they were very impressed. It seems to project the sound very well. Great thing is the built in dsp as this will protect your investment and it improves your sound quality.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this bundle, although if you do larger venues you might be better off looking at the dave 12 or even the 15. Bare in mind the sub woofer will be a lot heavier on those sets and this convinced me to go with the 10.

Klein ganz groß
Christian Z. 628, 01.01.2013
· Assumed from LD Systems Dave 10 G3
Zu dieser PA gibt es einiges zu sagen daher dieser Testbericht.

Viele sagen, das so eine kleine Anlage nur was für`s Wohnzimmer ist, aber das stimmt nicht. Ich habe diese auf meiner Silvesterveranstaltung getestet. Es gab ein Puplikum mit ca. 60-70 Gästen zu beschallen. Das Alter der Gäste war von ca. 15 - 65 Jahren sehr vielfältig. Das System klingt sehr ausgewogen und gut abgestimmt. Das Bassfundament ist genauso satt wie die Wiedergabe der Höhen und Mitten klar ist.
Alles passt zusammen und klingt ausgewogen, nicht aufdringlich aber dennoch druckvoll. Auch die Resonanz der Gäste zeigte dies. Nun kommt es auch etwas auf den pesönlichen Geschmack und auch auf das Puplikum sowie die zu beschallende Räumlichkeit an wenn man sich sowas zulegen möchte. Ich kann nur sagen das die Anlage bei den Musikrichtungen zwischen Oldies und Chart`s den Job sehr ordentlich macht. Natürlich für eine ausgewachsene Technofete sollte man lieber auf nen 15ner Sub zurückgreifen oder größer.
Zudem kann man mit einer getrennten Stativmontage der Sateliten und somit einer besseren Positionierung im Raum noch einiges herausholen. Das System wurde von mir aus Platzgründen mit einer Distanzstange und einer Stativgabel betrieben.

Es waren am Abend immer noch Lautstärkereserven vorhanden, somit war auch nichts überfordert.

Fazit: Tolle Anlage für wenig Geld. Man sollte sich nicht fürchten auch einmal eine kleine PA zu testen, denn die können mehr als man meistens erwartet. Ich war positiv überrascht was aus so einem "Zwerg" herauskommt. Sicher das sagen alle aber ausprobieren lohnt sich. Für kleine bis mittlere Veranstaltungen eine klare Empfehlung.

Zur Punktevergabe: ich habe bei den Features nur 3 Punkte gegeben, da mir einfach eine Möglichkeit fehlt das Signal weiterzuschleifen und somit weitere Systeme mit wenig Kabelaufwand zu verbinden.

Top Anlage!
BastiDrums, 14.02.2015
· Assumed from LD Systems Dave 10 G3
Habe diese Anlage für den Aufenthaltsraum unserer Jugendgruppe gekauft, um Musik zu hören aber auch um kleinere Veranstaltungen zu beschallen.

Für diese Anlage habe ich mich hauptsächlich wegen dem günstigen preis und der kompakten Größe entschieden. Gehört habe ich sie nicht sondern hab mich nur auf Bewertungen verlassen.

Habe es im Komplett Thomann bundle gekauft und die Lieferung war wie immer super schnell. Die Lieferung erfolgte in 3 großen Paketen in denen einmal die 2 Passiven Lautsprecher, in einem der Sub und in einem die Kabel und Stative waren. Alles wie immer einwandfrei verpackt.


Nach dem Auspacken war ich sehr begeistert wie gut das set Verarbeitet ist. Alles sauber und Professionell.

Dann ging es ans aufstellen. Der Raum ist relativ groß und ziemlich offen. Habe die Lautsprecher ganz nach hinten zu der Sitzecke gestellt und auch dementsprechend ausgerichtet. Das verkabeln ging sehr schnell und war durch die sehr überschaubare Anzahl der Anschlüsse mehr als einfach.
Das einzige was mir nicht gefällt sind die Millennium Stative, die sind zwar wirklich top verarbeitet und alles, aber einfach zu groß für diese kleinen Lautsprecher, worunter aber nur die Optik leidet.Da wir die Anlage ja eh fest installiert haben werde ich da noch zu Wandhalterungen greifen (Die Stative kann man aber immer mal brauchen, gerade wenn man z.B draußen eine Veranstaltung hat.)

Dann kam der erste Soundcheck. Habe über ein chinch Kabel mein Handy angesteckt und ein Lied mit viel Bässen aber auch vielen Höhen rein gemacht und die Regler am Subwoofer auf Mittelposition gestellt.
Der Sound war richtig satt allerdings musste ich den Bassregler nochmal ein ganzes Stück zurück drehen da das schon zuviel war. Als ich dann eine perfekte Einstellung gefunden hatte war ich total begeistert. Alles klar, kein Rauschen, surren oder Knistern, einfach nur eine prima Klangqualität, die mehr als ausreichend ist für unseren Einsatz.

Fazit: Kann diese Anlage für jeden empfehlen der eine Preiswerte PA sucht gerade für kleine Veranstaltungen oder Aufenthaltsräume.
