These speakers sound great. We use them for live sound and they outproduce our JBL JRX115's by double. (Of course this is an entry level speaker vs a tour series...not a fair match) Sound is crisp and clean. It is nice that they can handle a lot of power from the amps. The grills are not quite as heavy as I'd like, especially for road use, but they are robust enough to protect the speakers. I will easily look past this for the overall performance of the product. Spend the extra money for quality on this speaker. You will not be sorry.
