Great for Theater

By Garrett

from Sharon, WI

Even though my school's auditorium isn't anything near great acoustically, three of these performed quite well for our theatrical productions, and the feedback stayed pretty low with an EQ on each of the channels.

great for churches

By david kennedy

from cleveland, oh

Have a few hanging in churches here in cleveland. Work great for choirs, organ, liturgy and classical. Clean sounding, low noise, very sensitive and a wide frequency response. Good enough for audiophile systems and commercial releases. Great low end, our organ goes down to 8Hz!
