Can we all agree that the Atomic CLR is king of the FRFR...

I think we can all agree that the CLR is king of the FRFR for modelers... So what is #2??

I am basing this on tone and reliability... not on price, size, weight, etc

I guess we can agree on that, though it is not my favorite FRFR (on tone), and the one I owned had a problem right out of the box..... so, on 2nd thought, I guess I don't agree on that.

I like the Yamaha DXR10. Is it perfect? No. Is it "the best?" Probably not, but it's my favorite of the 4 I've tried with modelers.

Carry on.

if you really want to sniff some cork, try a meyer speaker
but you're looking at 3-4 grand
pretty sure they don't offer a neo though
hell of a lot of speaker in the atomic

That is a whole other level. Played through those for a few year. They are like nothing else I have every played

There is nothing we all can agree on. I like my Atomic Reactor Wedge feels like and amp. If i wanted perfect fidelity i would monitor my self through studio headphones all the time.

I think most people missed my intent for this thread... It wasn't to say the CLR is better the XYZ, I was saying the CLR is one of the best speakers for use with a modeler, and based on that assumption what would call 2nd best. What would you call 3rd best.

Again, I am not accounting for price, weight, availability, etc.

Let me me re-phrase the question:

Your band got picked to open up for a major headlining band, and you cant use an amp. The tour promoter asks what you want for your back line... What would that FRFR speaker be?

Picking a monitor because it has better tone is like picking a mirror because it makes you look skinny.
That analogy doesn't work because the monitor is part of the tone and everyone will hear it whereas you won't be carrying a mirror around and insist everyone look at it instead of directly at you.

No one except me and maybe my bandmates hears my CLR. I trust it to tell me how I really sound (or more precisely, how the signal I'm sending to FOH really sounds). I don't want to be in sonic bliss onstage while my audience is getting icepicks in the ears.
