These are now my favorite self-powered speakers, as well as my favorite speakers for modest sized church applications.

They sound glorious! Absolutely crystal clear. The rectangular coverage pattern is unique and priceless, and helps keep sound off the walls. Dante input is very cool (they have analog inputs too), and on-board processing is beautiful.

And yeah, it's "only a 12," but these are not thin on the bottom end in the slightest. Sure, put a sub under them if you're gonna rock (or if you want that amazing "roll away the stone" low end for Easter), and they'll handle most anything you throw at them!
