Speakers and PA systems are usually designed for some pretty extensive use, and with a good amount of road-readiness built right in. But that doesn't mean they couldn't use a helping hand to keep them in good shape. With the right speaker cases, gig bags and covers to transport and store them, you'll help your speakers last longer and keep your system looking pristine - which can go a long way to earning repeat business from high-profile clients. After all, even for sound engineers, appearances can matter. And it goes without saying that keeping your speakers in good shape is essential. Making them easier to transport is just icing on the cake, and you can gear up right here to do it all.
Choosing the best cases or gig bags for your speakers isn't a tough process: all you have to do is decide on the features you want and match the size of the case with the speaker. Models made for larger speakers, like the Gator G-TOUR SPKR-215 Speaker Transporter, usually come with built-in wheels to make moving the speakers a cinch. Smaller cases and gig bags, like the JBL EON15 Deluxe PA Speaker Carrying Bag (3rd Generation), are also designed to help transportation - but instead of using wheels, they do it by being lightweight and loaded with straps and handles. Rolling or carrying, you can't go wrong as long as you're picking the best method for your speakers and your own needs.
If your goals here are more about storage and use of your speakers than transportation, you'll probably be looking for speaker covers rather than cases. There are plenty to choose from, including custom-fitted covers like the QSC K12 Outdoor Cover and the Electro-Voice Cover for ELX118 Speaker, both of which are top sellers and definitely worthwhile to keep your K12 or ELX118 in good condition. Some covers, such as the JBL EON15 Speaker Cover (3rd Generation), can even be unzipped and opened up in front, allowing you to get the speaker's best sound quality even while the cover is installed.
There's a wide variety of speaker cases, gig bags and covers waiting for you here, so it doesn't matter if you and your speakers are staying or going; it's a safe bet that you'll find what you need. Protection is the name of the game, and whether that means a big, hard-shelled case to safeguard your speakers on long tours or a simple, lightweight gig bag to tote a small PA system to a local gig, this is the place to find it. You can even be ready with a cover to slip on once you arrive - everything to wrap up your speakers in style is right here.
