"The G2 was great, these are AMAZING"

I have used a pair of Maui 28 G2's on hundreds of gigs over the past few years, and they sounded great and performed flawlessly. They are a fantastic column speaker.I am now running a pair of these new Maui 28 G3's... and it is hard to even describe the generational leap LD Systems has made here. These are hands down, unequivocally, the most balanced and fullest sounding speakers I have ever worked with. They absolutely blow the G2 series out of the water in every way.The improvement in the inherent balance of the sound across the frequency range is MASSIVE. In particular, the high end seems less "brittle" and more dispersed, and the low end is tighter and deeper. But the biggest improvement is in the midrange, which sounds exponentially "fuller" and strong, but still balanced.The cardioid rear-rejection on the columns is shockingly effective, and the dual-sub cardioid setup with a single column is my go-to setup for smaller rooms where dual columns may not work well.The build quality is also an exponential improvement. The paint on the subs is far more rugged than the G2, and the columns themselves are bigger and seem more roadworthy.The I/O section is simplified too... a simple L/R line level input and a master volume with separate subwoofer level. This is basically how most people were using the G2 despite it having a rudimentary mixer built in.The reality is that the G3 seems less like a follow up to the G2 and more like a smaller version of the LD Maui 44 both in style and performance. And that's not a bad thing!
