Took a chance and ordered a pair of these on the internet and was pleasantly surprised. They are lightweight and easier to transport as advertised. Played two gigs before really getting a good opportunity to get used to them so the jury is still out on whether they are as good as my old Peavey SP-5 XTs. The amount of power has been impressive. I played two fairly large places and they handled it with no problem. People have commented on the smooth, balanced sound and clarity. I'm planning on using a new Sure Beta 58 mic with them so looking forward to seeing how it works out. I will definitely keep you posted. Very good sound for an affordable price. I'm sure the powered version is good but made more sense to just get the passive. Worth the investment if you are looking for something back friendly!
