"15Bst's for Studio and Live band..."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have been researching these for about a month after I came upon them while looking for a good speaker for both my studio and full band P.A. After reading everything I could find on them and doing endless comparisons for price, quality, features and versatility I finally pulled the trigger last week and ordered them. I waited a week before posting a review because I wanted to put them through rigorous testing of every application for which I'll be using them. To start, I plugged them in and just played music from my tablet via Bluetooth. The fact that I downloaded the thump connect app. the night before I received them and familiarized myself with it and saved three settings that I knew I'd be using was very cool and significantly shortened the time from unboxing to listening to them. The sound quality of the music was clear and loud. I didn't really use the Bluetooth streaming feature as a consideration when buying them but it's a cool feature nonetheless. Next I plugged my Alesis Strike Pro drum kit into them and was very pleased with the sound quality as well as the volume. While using them for my drums I laid them on their side like a wedge monitor and they are much better monitors than my previous ones. Having my tablet and phone mounted to my drums when I play makes controlling the volume and setting the EQ through the Thump Connect app so painless as now I never have to get up to adjust anything on the P.A. or monitors and I'm already spoiled by this and can't image not having read more it. I also plugged My bass guitar directly into them and was wowed by how great it sounded. I am completely content with using the 15BST's as a bass amp and now saving money not having to buy one since I am not actually a bass player and only play when recording. Finally I ran my mixer through them and used them as a standard P.A. minus the hassle of separate amps, power conditioners etc... that is usually needed for a decent P.A. So I guess the takeaway for anyone reading this is, the Mackie Thump 15BST's work so well for everything for which I've used them so far that I am now saving to buy 2 of the 18S subs so I can use them as the mains for everything in my studio when my band practices and I'm also going to purchase 2 or 3 more of the 12 or 15BST's to use as monitors or whatever the moment calls for at the time. With 2 of the 15bst's atop 2 18S subs, not only will that setup work for any and all of my studio and band practice needs but also I'm confident that setup with a 16ch mixer will work for any small to medium sized venue.
