    Not a bad speaker for the money. I have seen them at weddings with DJ's and Karaoke events, and they seem to be on par with most systems. Not sure if they make a proprietary sub for them or not. The Blue Tooth add on for 299 speaker is cool.

    Wood cab and bluetooth at that price seem like a good deal if it sounds good

    This looked like a stunning deal, and like the OP, I couldn't find much in the area of reviews that weren't likely shills/dealers. I jumped in with both feet and bought a pair of them. After a complete sell-off of PA gear a few years ago, I have been looking to get a couple of powered speakers. At $299 and Bluetooth capable, I was sold. Just got them yesterday. So far, they seem great.

    They aren't as overly bright as QSCs or Yamaha DXRs. They run pretty flat without EQ, but the EQ switches on the back allow you to bump the highs, mids, or bass. I'm thinking these speakers would work wonderfully as a FRFR for a Kemper/Axe, etc. They lay down in several different wedge angles.

    I have been traveling constantly since soon after mine came in, and I haven't had a chance to try it out with a modeler. How is yours working?

    Got some time in with it today, Im impressed
    I dont have anything to compare it to, and Im sure if I had it next to a CLR I would like the CLR better, but so far so good.
