VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: You can't go wrong with EV quality speakers. They cost a little more, but they are overbuilt in every respect - from the weather resistant design to the way they conservatively apply RMS power ratings, providing a level of durability and sound quality you can't find with lesser brands. I own a number of EV speakers (as well as both modern and vintage EV mics), including SX100+ PA speakers, the ZX1s and now the EVIDs for my outdoor patio environment. I had my system professionally installed and the AV guys were blown away by the sound. You can spend less, but you won't get more. Feature: Best: Durability - sound quality. Note: If you love bass, you will need the sub. While these put out better bass than most for their size, the physics of sound coming from dual 4" woofers equates to a 6"+ woofer - certainly good but isn't going to rattle your teeth. Mids and highs are sparkling, however, and overall dynamic range is as good as a high-end studio monitor (in fact, there's no reason these wouldn't work great for that purpose). Ease of Use: The mounting system is super strong and exceptionally versatile in positioning the speaker perfectly. Quality: You cannot beat EV speakers for quality and durability at the price, and you could spend a lot more just to match it. Value: If long term durability is in the equation, you will get years and years of use from EV speakers. Manufacturer Support: I blew one of the horns in my SX 100's - my fault -- and they replaced without an issue. The Wow Factor: Very cool look. Excellent sound. Weather resistant. Overall: They won't be lost and my Dobie will ensure they aren't stolen, but if it happened, I would replace them with EVIDs again. I would also purchase them from ZZ Sounds as they have always provided excellent pricing and great service.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
