I bought 8 of these to use in a small auditorium for 150 people as a surround sound installation. I bought the wall mounts as well and a couple of Achat 112 subwoofers. These are not cinema type speakers but I took the chance and was not disappointed. The dispersion was the only concern I really had, and luckily the 90° x 90° seems to be adequate for this room. Doing a fixed installation I was pleased that the speakers had the "old school" feature of binding posts connections too.
I guess this is not how most people will use these speakers. But if I was to use these speakers on the road I would not be worried. They are very well build and for their size I would call the quite heavy. In fact I felt a little bad mounting something this sturdy on the wall out of harms way. They where clearly made for a life filled with much more action and excitement than I intended for them. The sound is, as I said, clear and they can get loud as well. When it comes to bass they have more than I expected. They will however need a subwoofer if you want to fill the dance floor. If all you need is a PA for speaking/singing or light music they will do just fine on their own.
Being 8 ohms speakers some will appreciate the dual speak-on (or dual binding posts) connection. It would be very easy to connect 2 speakers in series that way.
I bought a pair of these speakers to combine with an existing subwoofer, to create a system which will replace and older, larger, heavier system, hoping to be able to keep up the SPL of my older speakers, and these do that just fine. The speakers they are replacing are from 'Scott Sound Systems which 3 way and have a 15 inch Low, 10 inch Mid and 2 inch High. They also require a lot less EQ in order for them to sound how I want them to sound, so to be able to say that they keep up with my older speakers, and, in some ways, out-run, makes me very impressed. I'm very fussy on sound, so for me, no speaker sounds great out of the box, they all need some adjustment. Just some need it more than others. I love the rigging points, I also have the vertical U bracket to go with these to rig them from my truss, and I love how the bottom rigging point is interchangeable from M10 to 36mm pole mount. The best part for me is how pins +-2 are paralleled through to the 'thru' connector. This means that with the right cabling I can link the speakers, and maintain a stereo sound. It means I only have to run 1 speaker cable up my tripod. The other speaker cable to link the other speaker up can then be up on my truss out of the way.
