Customer Reviews


This has been a miracle product for me. I hurt my back last year and have been trying to keep my PA low profile; at 7kg each these are perfect. I can fit 6 of these in the same space as one of my old units. The price point on these is superb (£75); the 70W rating is sufficient for most town hall gigs and you can always double them up and provide stereo monitoring where appropriate. There tiny size is perfect for small cramped stages and again handy transport in a smaller vehicle. Bass response is usable without being overwhelming; so slight compromise there. Overall I'm a very happy customer.

Not really a review but this should help people decide to at least try it...

Pros Price, size, light weight, clear punchy sound
Cons No e.q. At lease a lo & hi would help. Better with a mid ;-)
Overall Great value and very little to touch it in it's class.

My rock band has 4 of these. They are easy to carry and have a good sound for the price.

For the money - fantastic. Very lightweight and portable. Sound quality wise well balanced. I didn't notice any shrilness in the high frequencies. Bass was sufficient without being overpowering or 'loose' but then again I don't like too much bass in my monitor mix so others may disagree. The monitor is loud enough for my purposes (acoustic guitar and voice). In fact the volume suprised me for such a portable lightweight speaker with a 70 watt rating. The documentation states a max spl of 114 1m which means the sensitibity is 95.5(dB 1W/1M). This was something that I was worried about before I bought as no-one seemed to be able to tell me these specs; cheap speakers tend to boast about wattage without revealling the sensitivity, which makes all the difference to the actual volume.

My only criticism is the lack of an eq control. Surely this wouldn't cost too much to implement if this product is revised in the future.

Excellent lightweight and compact monitor. Good power output and clear noise-free audio. Excellent express delivery as usual, with all products in my order arriving on time.

Pleasantly surprised! I wasn't expecting much for the price, but these are actually very good.
Great portable size and the sound is very clear. I was worried about the low end from the spec and small size, but again I was surprised that it's very sufficient for monitor speakers.

For the price and for smaller acoustic gigs, perfect.

Perfect - does exactly what it says on the box!
Compact, light weight (yet solid) perfect for solo artists or small studio

Amazing value for money! A well constructed and punchy little monitor that will be ideal for our pub gigs. It has plenty of power, great sound quality and is easy to set up and use.

Outstanding sound quality, small and portable. Does the job well. I have to type eleven more words for this reveiw but theres nothing more to say

A great, surprisingly powerful powered monitor. No frill but does the job without taking up loads of space. The only negative is that you will have to go out and but a UK mains (kettle) lead as it comes with a euro lead as supplied.

The first disappointment was that it was delivered with a European power cable. It is rated at 70 watts RMS which is just about enough. It is small, robust and attractive and fine for the venues where I perform.

Small, lightweight with plenty of power. I'll be buying another for the drummer!

They are very nice size and weight and were just right for my purposes. The sound was a lot clearer than our old monitors.
