For the price, these are hard to beat. It is difficult to rate a piece of equipment without a side-by-side comparison. Most PA speakers weak point is the tweeter and crossover. A simple modification with a L-Pad ( light dimmer control) will allow you the ability to turn down the horn and protect it, balance the sound( high frequencies). A 30 minutes effort, makes this twice the cab. The 400 watt rating, overly optimistic, I wouldn't push it unless you want to replace the speaker.

Well, I bought this one, Nady PTS515, back in 12/02, as a blem. The speaker did not work right out of the box. Loose wiring req'd me to do some soldering. Same for the horn, then both worked. Hmm. Let's also put this way: DON'T PUT 400 WATTS to this thing. I know b/c I also used to own the PS115's, a pair w/ 15"'s. Those are "rated" to handle 500 wts. NO WAY. We ran my Crown CE1000 @ 275 wts. This PTS; 200 wts continuous. That did it fine, nicely. I only have one PTS515 for now; I used the 115's for mains, and the PTS as a front end monitor. I'll get another PTS to have a complete pair. Gave the 115's to my nephew for his P.A. Overall, they are "OK". Nothing really spectacular, but decent enough to do practice/small gigs thing. JBL's, MACKIES, heck, even Peavey or Kustom's would be better, but these aren't all bad, if that's all one can afford. Just watch the wiring jobs...

    Comments about Nady PTS515 12" 400 Watt 2-Way Trapezoid Speaker Cabinet:

    pretty nice little package here, in a very durable wooden box. i dropped it down a 40 foot escalator, and it still plays perfectly! this box can handle mostly anyhing that can be thrown at it, keeping in mind this thing was really inexpensive.

    Comments about Nady PTS515 12" 400 Watt 2-Way Trapezoid Speaker Cabinet:

    I think it's really expensive for how bad quality it is. I suggest lowering the prices a little. I used to use the speakers, and they really weren't that great.

    Comments about Nady PTS515 12" 400 Watt 2-Way Trapezoid Speaker Cabinet:

    I've been using a set of these for about 3yrs, 3-4 gigs a month, and for the appx $100ea I paid, I couldn't be happier. Sure, the cheap plastic feet & corners tend to crack or even break off, but they sound really good (we run vocals only thru them), & have been VERY reliable. Great deal for the money.

    Lots of speaker for the money

    By Bill-QDLrB

    from Southern MN

    Comments about Nady PTS515 12" 400 Watt 2-Way Trapezoid Speaker Cabinet:

    Performs well. We haven't put alot of power to it yet - maybe 100 watts RMS max so far. Handles bass and midrange smoothly, but could be a little brighter on the high-end. In live sound reinforcement, it does almost as well as a couple of other portable speakers we use that are bigger names and much more expensive. Time will tell how rugged it is, but so far we are very pleased with what the price got us. It's alot more than I expected for the money.

    Well, I use a pair of these as house PA speakers, and they work great. When I play music through them, the lows aren't all that great, but they work! Awesome product for a stellar value!

    Comments about Nady PTS515 12" 400 Watt 2-Way Trapezoid Speaker Cabinet:

    I ordered two of these wonderfully priced speakers about a year ago, I haven't had a problem with them except that I blew both Peizo drivers in the first 6 months. the problem was easily fixed by ordering a pair of replacment peizo drivers from a parts store. this was not covered under warranty

    Comments about Nady PTS515 12" 400 Watt 2-Way Trapezoid Speaker Cabinet:

    They have a pretty nice tone, it's no Mackie, but considering the price of the speaker itself, it's a great speaker. They can also take quite a beating, I've had dropped mine, each of mine several times and the sound is yet to change!

    Comments about Nady PTS515 12" 400 Watt 2-Way Trapezoid Speaker Cabinet:

    Purchased these for monitor use (price influenced me too) and for PA use for my daughter's punk band. Great for monitors. Handles lots of power. Would recommend if you are on a budget, however, you must have good EQ system as these respond quite dfferently than Yamaha's and JBL's. Much more low-mid and mid. Also received free speaker stands that made this purchase very enticing. I have had numerous other band members scoff at the Name ID of Nady but they changed their opinion once they used them as monitors on our stage.

    Comments about Nady PTS515 12" 400 Watt 2-Way Trapezoid Speaker Cabinet:

    I've been using two of these for side-fill monitors for a year now and they sound great. Been able to take some abuse (a lot of handling), but I'm always careful of the plastic handles and the plastic 1/4" jacks. Other than the plastic parts I've got nothing but praise for these speakers.

    Comments about Nady PTS515 12" 400 Watt 2-Way Trapezoid Speaker Cabinet:

    Some low-freq distortion noticed at high wattage. Highs a little flat, not as dynamic as I was hoping for. But still, for the PRICE, you'll be very pleased!

    I had 2 of these speakers, they didn't last a week before the cheap crossovers failed. Do not put more than 150-watts to them, they won't last. Okay for just vocals only.
