"Mackie step it up."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I started off with Mackie thump. For the money, good Choice. I kept hearing about the Qsc,EV,JBL speakers. I had them all !!! I’m not about the low end. Talking about SRX815,KW153 and let me tell you,these DRM can keep up with them in power also Quality sound. Like I said keep up, But not better. But for the price different. The DRM is the winner, hands down if you want to save like $500. I’m a DJ also do sound check from time to time. You can’t go wrong with DRM’s.
