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.

Very good but the sub can't be too loud for a while or it clips very easily.. Very good for the price though and an active sub!

Top Sub
DJ Danny, 01.02.2018
Ich betreibe einen einzelnen 8003 AS II als Unterstützung für zwei kräftige 15 Zoll Fullrange-Lautsprecher. Diese Konstellation ist optimal, da dieser SUB sehr tief und kraftvoll spielt und das Audiospektrum nach untenhin ergänzt. Das heist, hörbarer Bass ist ohnehin vorhanden, es fehlte aber etwas an Druck am unteren Ende. Für jemand der nur 12 Zoll-Tops oder wenig Fullrange-fähige Tops hat, würde ich zu einem anderen Sub (15er oder z.B. 905 AS um bei RCF zu bleiben) raten. Die 8003 Serie spielt ihre Stärken eher im unteren Sub-Bereich (30-80 Hz) aus und es könnte bei ungünstigen Mischen von Systemen fehlender Mittelbass/Kickbass (80-150 Hz) die Folge sein. Daher doch besser vorher mit entsprechenden oder vergleichbaren Topteilen Probe hören. Die Grösse und Gewicht des SUB?s bitte nicht ausser Acht lassen (mit Rollen kommen nochmals 4 Kg hinzu).
Sollte jemand Entscheidungsschwierigkeiten zwischen dem 8003 und 8004 haben, so kann ich dazu folgendes sagen. Der nicht zu vernachlässigende Preisunterschied kommt vor allem durch die teurere und aufwendigere Konstruktion der 8004er-Serie zustande. Besseres Holz, besserer Korpus (Frontgitter abschrauben und reinschauen).
Positiv:
- Solides Bassfundament bei akzeptablen Gewicht
- Top DSP mit sehr nützlichen PA-Presets
- Neueste Technologie für Treiber und Amp
- Konventionelle (lüfterlose Kühlung)
Negativ:
- Kein ON/OFF Schalter
- überstehendes Frontgitter verhindert das Draufsetzen der Tops beim Transport
- viel zu teure Schutzhüllen

RCF 8003 ASII : Il fait la différence quand les autres peinent à faire le job ! !
Dominique D, 18.05.2021
RCF pas de problème.
Ayant déjà une majorité d'équipements de la marque RCF ma confiance était totale. je n'ai aps été déçu bien au contraire.
Combiné avec 2 RCF J8 EVOX ( Line array 2 voies ) c'est purement bluffant ! Le prix s'oublie quand la qualité est aussi présente ! Quant au cover (la housse) c'est parfait !
