    Surprisingly decent for the money

    By David J Murphy

    Comments about Gem Sound PXA-252 15" Active 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

    There are two of these in the venue where I work. I can say that they are a good asset for where we use them, which usually stage is monitoring. Our house is powered by nine Crown XTi and CTS amps.. in other words, an extremely high quality, extremely powerful system. They don't have the greatest side angle for propping up on the floor as a stage monitor, but for the money these things give a serious blast.

    These Gem cabinets, believe it or not they can almost compete in volume for average use. As far as getting pretty good 80 - 110 dB sound or probably a lot louder (i don't have a dB meter yet), the Gems can really put out. My recommendation is to get some EQ going on them because they are a bit boxy in the low-mids and probably don't have the greatest bass in the world. As far as durability, the knobs are a bit wobbly and will probably get broken some day, and if I crank these too hard for too long I wouldn't be surprised if I blew a woofer or a transistor, but you expect these things when you are buying cheap cabinets.
    If you want superb sound, make a serious investment in some high quality speaker systems. If you need a somewhat decent PA really quickly or some inexpensive (and slightly bulky) monitors these are worth the money.
    Judging by the other review, they probably aren't great as a self contained drum PA without EQ and a big sub or something.

    You can use these if:You don't care about quality,Your drummer puts towels on his drums,Your drummer has weak limp wrists and hits like an anemic girl-scout,You don't have a drummer,You play at "sleepy-time" volumeYou are playing recorded speech only, (no music)or if you hate good sound and love sending gear back.These are landfill fodder, Made In China, a waste of dwindling petrochemical byproducts. Other than the horrible sound, guaranteed failure and the ugly "sad-face" design, I cant imagine why anyone would hate these.
