I got this and 2 non powered for our 3 piece classic rock band. Tone wasnt great and used a small graphic and got it to where they were usable. BUT just added the Behringer 1124P EQ/Feedback destroyer (about $100) and WOW. Set up 7 filters on the Behringer to EQ for a nice punchy tone, then let the remaining filters take care of the feedback. After dialing in, we now have more volume than we need. When was the last time you had that? Last practice only used the monitors and we were cranking pretty well. VERY HAPPY!!!!
I used the Hot Spots for over 2 years in a weekly church setting. They do a great job of giving what you need without added base. They do not sound warm like your house speakers should, they provide only what you need to hear the mix with way less feedback in mics. I found these worked better than floor wedges in our smaller setting. Again, there monitors are not going to sound warm and fuzzy, but they will do a great job of keeping stage noise down!
I got this from a club that I used to DJ at. It was popping so I got it for free when they replaced it. The problem was a blown cap on the input with the 1/4". When I popped it open I was suprised to see pretty good build quality inside. The main caps are Elna! After the repair it works great. This is perfect for a dj monitor for the type of DJ that doesn't like a super loud booth (like me).
We use one of these at our church as our sole monitor (small church). It was purchased prior to my arrival, and if I had been here, we would not have bought it. The sound quality is tinny at best and in spite of the EQ is forever stuck in the realm of too-much highs.Perhaps others have had better experiences, but mine have not been worth a strong recommendation.
It's important to understand what this is and what it's not. As an up-close personal powered monitor, the Galxy Hot-Spot does a great job. It has lots of power and cuts through. I use it mounted at the same level as my keyboard for vocal and keyboard monitoring. On the floor it will not work well at all. The build quality is so-so and the handle is cheap. As another review mentioned, it's too bad JBL or Mackie doesn't make a product like this.
