I had been on a waiting list for a DXR10 since last year. I finally gave up and realized the ELX200 10P was EV’s equivalent. And I’ve had nothing but good luck with EV powered monitors. Never got the DXR10 but don’t regret getting the ELX200 10P one bit. It sounds killer. Whether on the floor as a wedge monitor or up on a pole. If I can afford it, I’d get a second one. This is for either personal monitoring at a gig with a PA, or a backline for smaller shows without.Was just looking at the ELX200 10P actually! Have you ever had a chance to compare it to either QSC K10.2, Yamaha DXR10, or Presonus Air10?
I would've already ordered the K10.2 by now but it won't be available at my retailer for another 2 months. Same goes for the DXR10. Just stumbled upon the ELX200 and it does look good for sure. I don't mind paying a little extra for the K10.2 however if it means I'm compromising on sound in any way with the ELX (I might mind the 2 month wait though...)
You only using the EV for your Fm3? Or do you use it for vocals also?
So far it’s just for my FM3 rig. But I am an Ableton user that live loops and launches synth sequences, drum beats and I sing as well. So it would be used to monitor quite a few things. Which is why I stuck to powered PA speaker FRFR over amp and guitar cab. It covers a lot of bases for me.
I’m playing thru it tonight with some clean Fender models and a slightly hairy JTM45 and it sounds fantastic.
