from Electro-Voice has a real winner here.Electro-Voice has a real winner here. Pounding Electro-Voice sound, easily reaches 127db. If anything the amp is underrated, rare for specs these days. Although i've only had it for 2 weeks, i've been using continuously and leaving it on nearly 24/7. Some observations. The amprun fairly warm but hasn't gotten fry an egg super hot, i've run it for hours at over 100 decibels continuous. 2 of these would be great for a venue 300 people type size. But If your looking super low sub, this is not what these are for. EV rates it at 1000 watts peak, well maybe, but i'd guess around 300-400+ watts continuous. But the sound is phenomenal.A couple things I wish they added. 1.The ability to run the speakers as passive, without using the internal amp. It would be deadly if the amp failed and you couldn't use the speakers. They need to change that.2. The controls are well recessed, but i could see them easily getting smashed by someone tossing a mic stand on top during transport. I'm going to create a aluminum cover to protect them. 3. A minor detail, but front has a really bright lite under the EV logo. Would be nice to be able to turn it down. Not something the audience needs burning into their retinas. I simply placed a piece of green electrical tape over it, now it's a nice subtle light.So all in all a great value, if you like the Electro-Voice sound, this won't let you down. But the real world is hard...I hope the amp holds up, in 6 months or so i'll follow up.
