Re: Powered PA speakers?
Thanks for the info. I stopped at a nearby Guitar Center (why not
change the name to music center?) in hopes of a/b comparing them (Mackie
SRM 450) against the Eon 15s, and I came to the exact same conclusion
that you did! So much better, not even a contest. And that with a pair
of metal guitarists finding the volume output of a Marshall amp. You
can always count on some things.
$625/ea? where did you get that price? It's better than I've seen
