Very good value for money
Howard, 24.06.2019
Use: mainly home for rehearsals and the occasional small gig. Uusally on top of 1x15 subs. Power amp Behringer KM750.
Good points: Power rating 300w continuous. Solidly made, very good frequency response for a 12 inch full range. Loud enough for me, and good clarity at almost all volumes (not when running too quiet, which is not what a sound reinforcement speaker should be doing anyway).
Bad points: the monitor conversion feet are a bit feeble in comparison to the massive construction of the cabinets. They are pretty heavy, which might be an issue for some, not me.
General: I like these a lot, as you can tell from the rating. Great punchy sound clear sound and look to be as tough as you could ask. Now to be a little contentious if I may, and for what it's worth. The user manual says "The amps maximum RMS output power should be 50% above the power handling capacity of the connected speakers." I've been playing live for almost 40 years and my experience of bits of cone flying about and melted coils and crossovers, even with amps and cabinets exactly matched in power rating, tells me that this is the exact opposite of what I will ever do. I have had overpowered speakers fail within minutes. I always try to have at least 50% headroom in the speakers. The last cone failure was on a pair of full range tops rated at 250w continuous being driven by a 200w RMS amp. The argument is that doing it my way can overload the amplifier, but I have never once had a solid state amp fail or even shut down from thermal protection.
Conclusion, buy these speakers, they're really good.

Very Impressed!
Jacob Kelly, 07.01.2018
Got these for general PA use, eg metal bands, acoustic duos, DJ work etc.
They have took everything i have threw at them so far, they've took a near maxed out QSC RMX 2450 without distorting. They handled a small festival on there own, in a packed pub with about 150-200 people and a school hall very well. They go down to 40Hz which is low for top cab especially in this price range. Meaning they can handle bass guitar etc. I've received compliments on many occasions with them.
I would definitely recommend them to be used with a subwoofer if possible, but you can get away with them on there own.

I've also taken these apart to find a nice overbuilt crossover, cast frame beefy woofer and beefy compression driver. I've got a video on YouTube just search "Thomann The Box PA302 - Look Inside" as links are not allowed.

Overall: For the price they cannot be beaten! I prefer these to the Mackie SRM450V1, Mackie Thumps, JBL JRX 112, EV SX300 and the EV ZLX12.

Pros: Great clarity, Great Bass, Great Frequency Response.
Cons: Bit heavy, Only one handle, could be louder.

Great clarity but flimsy feet
Gary P., 11.05.2015
They sound good with solid midrange punch and great clarity. They look good, are of solid construction and feel robust. The only negative I could point at them is with the feet. They are a bit flimsy and fall off easily. If they will be cared for, then not a problem, they will probably last for years. I have them in a live music venue where punk, rock and ska bands love to kick and stand on them. If they last a month I will be impressed. They sound better than our old EV SX300s, are not as robust, but with the price difference, I am very happy. Very good value

Box PA302 Speaker Cab
Ron C., 25.11.2013
Really good sound, we use two of these for two vocals and three drum mics playing rock music. They cope well with average pub gigs (up to around the100 audience mark) including a small outdoor function. The sound is crisp clean and responsive, and they are easy to pick up and handle in and out of gigs and motors. We have had a lot of compliments on the sound, best thing we have bought for a while.
