Which Active PA Speakers

Recommended Posts

Planning to run Logic live for drums and keys, with live bass and gtr.


Totally baffled by which active PA speakers to buy after blowing a pair of Mackie SR1530z's on the first outing.


Looking for 500 watt either side of quality to punch out the quality Logic produces.


Does anyone have any views/advice on this.


I hear the Mackie SR range is fraught with problems, hence the SA range.

What size rooms and what size audiences? Mackies problem 'might' be poor quality control from overseas factories.


I would have recommend Mackies had it not been for your bad experience.


I will recommend EAW NT59 boxes. On a good day i use a pair of these as monitors, and ive also seen them as FOH cabinets, but with separate subs...how much PA do you want/need...comes back the first questions really.


RCF have made some ok powered speakers in the past. Dont know anything about the current line.


Of course avoid Behringer/Alto/Phonic/Tapco


best of luck

Thanks fadercraig


Only 500 a side for like local gigs doing covers.


Got drums and synths via logic and gonna do live gtr and bass via a Motu interface, so just looking for actives.


Had Mackie SR1530z's and they blew, which was not good.


Heard Mackie SA1521z's are an upgrade and very good.


Anyone know?
