"These are not only small and light, but easily the most powerful portable speakers I have used professionally. If you are a DJ these may just change your life!"

- Keith in Rialto, CA

- Luke in Barton, VT

- Greg in Southport, NC

- Doug in The Villages, FL

"This baby rocks! No more floor wedges, no more 25-35-pound space-hogging monitors. This thing cuts through with plenty of volume to spare."
- Eric in Orlando, FL

- Rodney in Beckley, WV

- Yulissa in Mission, TX

"You for sure get your money's worth when you go with JBL. I have 8 of these and subfwoofers to match. Never had any issues at any live event and always get repeat customers for sound quality."
- Eduardo in Antioch, CA

LD Systems MAUI 5 Ultra-Portable Column PA System

"I can't believe how much sound this thing puts out. So much bass from an 8" speaker blows my mind. I do a single with guitar, keyboard, vocals and some tracks and this thing sounds fantastic."
- Brian in Carson City, NV

"For the money you won’t find a better, more efficient, or easier to set up system. It travels very well as it’s only 25 pounds if that."
- Eric in Mansfield, PA

"I am a professional DJ, and have struggled for years with various portable PA systems, and full sized systems for wedding ceremonies, and outdoor cocktail hours. This unit is incredible! Solves every issue I ever had, so easy and quick to set up...and the sound is unbelievable."
