I have been using the CP8 since they have come out. For me it’s been the perfect speaker I’ve used other brands However the sound and the articulation as well as the volume and tonality that is thrown to the audience in my opinion surpasses the others. I’ve use the single microphone like the DPA 4099 clipped onto my guitar into a TouchMix eight and then out to 2QSC CP8 speakers and the sound is absolutely fabulous. There’s a very crystal clear articulation that takes place and there’s no ear fatigue when listening to the sound that’s being produced and thrown to the audience. This provides a much more enjoyable experience to the listener. The speakers are so easy to travel with and fit in just about any trunk. I’ve been playing Winery’s, corporate events, private parties and I’m constantly getting compliments on my tone in the set up. If you’re in Acoustic Musician and serious about your tone this may be the speaker that you were looking for. I’ve also use the speaker with just my paddleboard and amazing results . I’ve done some fashion shows and I just put one CPA on a pole and run my paddleboard to the XLR in and the fantastic sound. That’s true magic in the speakers they do not tire of the year and they generally produce the sound that they are given. As a Spanish guitarist playing in the flamenco style when using the mic it is so important that the speaker faithfully reproduces the sound of the mike is capturing and with this speaker it’s so easy read more to play with Mike without feedback and deliver stellar sound night after night.

The people at QSC deliver excellent service if you ever have questions and stand behind their products and that to me as a professional getting musician is worth it’s weight in gold. They are friendly and honest company to deal with and I consistently tell others about how great the products are that come from QSC . Finally the speakers are easy to travel with and they won’t hurt your back while caring them setting them up and tearing down at the end of the night. The speakers are true working musicians speak
