"Very good for Vocal - Strong and loud mid"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Excellent for Vocal - Strong and loud mid jump in front PAUsed this for FOH Vocal setup. After many comparison for vocal specific to Turbo Sound IQ, QSC, Yamaha, JBL SRX, I finally get a pair of these based on sound/price ratio and for my purpose of used this as a vocal purely or acoustic guitars. I have been go back and forth between the PRX812 versus SRX812 or SRX815 (Even thought I already have SRX835P) . For listening music, these PRX812 are loud and prominent with mid range, and vocal always stand out. For live band, I route mixer Aux to a separate pair of PRX for FOH for vocal, since these PRX has excellent mid range and vocal very clear and very loud. A/B with many different brand for live microphone usage, and this JBL PRX812 always has the best live vocal The 12' driver, and the tiny HF 2408H-2 are surprisingly good for live vocal or mid range. With built in DBX limiter type 4, I always have a feeling the vocal jump out in front all the time - that is very good. Where as many other will push the vocal back. Also using the download App, with a turn on sw of the app it will makes the mid range/vocal more clear and stay in front of speaker. To convince myself using PRX812 for vocal instead buying the SRX812 (I also have SRX835 already), I attempt to replace factory the tiny 1" exit HF 2408H-2 with a larger Selenium D220-Ti (1.75 Voice Coil) , or RCF ND850 1.4" , RCF ND2530 exit throat (Voice coil 2.5), and other 2" exit throat with 3" read more voice coil, but none of replacements produce any benefit, therefore the factory HF still the best for both mid range and extend HF beyond 15K. Happy with purchase.
