Comments about Mackie HD1221 12" 2-Way Compact High-Definition Powered Loudspeaker:

These speakers, when they are working, are very good. But we've already had one break down twice in less than six months (MAKE SURE TO GET THE WARRANTY!) and Asurion's (the company responsible for the repairs) turn around time/attention/communication is TERRIBLE. We also have a sub we bought and they had it for close to two months before they sent it back (allegedly, it is on its way). The total cost of this equipment was a heavy financial investment and it's cost us more on top of that due to orentals/cost of shipping it to Asurion. Don't say you weren't warned!
