If I had it to do all over again, I'd have gotten Yamahas
When it works, it sounds pretty good. The problem is a bad horn driver. The even bigger problem is that it's a problem in EVERY one of them, not just one of them. But they do sound good when the horn isn't blown. More on that below
It's got parallel input/outputs, a handle and a speaker stand cup...good enough. Also, it's rated at 500 watts but we had put much less than that through them when the horns went.
Ease of Use
It's a speaker cabinet. Plug it in...pretty easy.
The cabinet is fine and the grill that protects the speakers seems fine. Again, the horn driver is the problem. If you want these speakers be prepared to buy replacement drivers. No, I'm not a kid. Professional musician here with 25 years of experience including touring.
They're cheap. But, figure on paying an extra $50 or so per speaker to replace the horns.
I haven't dealt with them, but a bass player that I know has and said that he called Peavey about HIS set with blown horns and they gave him the run-around.
