LD Systems Dave 8 XS
Petar P., 30.05.2014
Perfect mix of clear treble, punchy, clear and detailed mids and powerful bass, fantastic value for money and can be transported in the front seat of my car.

I use it for home recording and rehearsing (room of 12 square meters), but I tested it in small pub (100 square meters, in front of cca 50 people) singing, playing piano and acoustic quitar (together with Alesis MultiMix 16 FireWire). Works very good in both situations.

I can highly recommend this multi-purpose system.

Good but disappointed with the bass...
23.02.2015
Very practical kit to transport everywhere, when you DJ at house parties. Only issue I have encountered is with the bass, which sometimes is absent...The subwoofer simply stops working. I think it has to do with some controllers/mixers I use when plugging them using the XLRs input. Would recommend sticking to RCA/RCA for connecting your mixer or DJ controller. For a subwoofer that big I would expect better and louder. Nothing to say on the satellites, they do the job pretty well, loud and crystal clear at high frequencies. I think overall this PA is excellent for home/multimedia house, but somehow limited for DJ usage.

Great product
Devetnica, 05.12.2020
I am happy with the Dave 8XS. For the money invested this is a good quality ratio. The sound is great, the bass is great, Mid / Hi is satisfying, everything is quite full of sound and pleasant to listen to. The whole system is well made. The only thing I'm missing is at least a little EQ, but it's still a great sound. For some modifications, a mixer can always be connected. I am very pleased.

nice home sound system
Mimica, 18.04.2020
sound is not that clear as I expected but nothing to worry much, it can all be configured with equiliser,actually they are pretty strong for that size, and quite cheap, if you want to use them on smaller gigs my strong advice, they are very ligtt and practical to carry eveywhere, I only dont like that base is little to much blurry for my taste, but still, very powerfull little speaker system, still dont understand why white version is cheaper then black :D :D
