  1. A silly price, .... But still not sold! How cheap does this need to be?
  2. Price dropped to £200 ...or £225 inc. delivery. Surely that is cheap enough?
  3. Still here! ... No love for these? :-(

    PA Suggestion...

    My singer bought one of the Alto TS110's to try, on the basis that it could be used as a monitor if it was not up to the job of replacing her Mackie's. We tried it out and were fairly impressed, so she bought another one, and gigged with them on Saturday night. The band all agreed that the Alto's sounded clearer and crisper than the Mackie 15's she had been using. She will now buy a third Alto and use two of them for the PA and one as a monitor. Cheers to everyone who posted in this thread, we are now sorted. ...and my singer has saved a few quid!
  5. Bump for price drop. Now £250 shipped.
  6. Just realised that I still have not sold this lovely old Status. .... Anyone?

    On account of where we are based in West Cornwall, we don't have the luxury of trying equipment. ...and as we all know, gear always sounds different in a gig situation. With that in mind, I am concerned about taking a chance on the Alto's. ...if they are not up to the job, my name could be 'mud'. The RCF' 10's are looking favourite (and a fairly safe bet), three of them for around a grand should not break the bank. She should be able to sell her Mackie's and her powered monitor to recoup at least half of that cost.

    I have had a very long chat with my singer... She prefers the idea of buying 3 x matching active 10's (using one as a monitor) and buying a spare Behringer mixer. I can see her logic, as we would then be pretty much covered for any breakdowns. This would mean her looking at the cheaper priced cabs. I have read a few reviews on the Alto Truesonic TS110's. They seem almost too good to be true at a touch over £200 each. Does anyone have any experience of them, particularly how they compare with some of the higher priced active 10's.

    Just to clarify.... We are happy with the sound of our singer's Mackie SRM650's. The problem is reliability. ...and the cabs are too heavy for her.

    PA Suggestion...

    Here is where I am at so far... Yamaha EMX512SC Powered Mixer Amp Either: 2 x RCF ART 310 Passives Or 2 x HK Audio Pro10 Passives My last two bands have used 15" PA cabs, and although I am aware of the fact that bigger does not necessarily mean louder... I am thinking that the 10" cabs need to be fairly decent quality to be heard over the band. Her budget for the cabs is going to be around £600 for the pair, with a weight limit of 30lbs each. I am open to any other suggestions on cabs.

    @JTUK.... Point taken on 'Redundancy', although my thinking is this.... The Mackie SRM's have not been reliable. They have both had problems and are only 11 months old. The two Yamaha Powered Mixers that I have used have both given good service. I will not bite on the comment about my singer wanting something she can hump.... I could end up in way too much trouble ;-)

    PA Suggestion...

    Once again 'Thanks' to everyone who has taken time to post :-) I have decided to advise my singer to go for a Powered Mixer Amp. Possibly a Yamaha as my last band used one with no problems, as does my son. I will also look into Passive Cabs and a Passive Monitor. Either 10's or 12's. Living in West Cornwall (although an amazing place) makes trying gear difficult, so I might play safe and suggest an all Yamaha PA, as I know they seem to work fine and be pretty reliable. ..... It is not like we are talking Bass gear! ;-)

    PA Suggestion...

    Thanks for all of your replies :-) I am thinking that maybe she should switch to a 'Passive speakers and a Powered Mixer' type set-up, or even keep her current Behringer mixer and get Passive speakers and a power amp? Her ex suggested she bought the SRM's, but they are stupidly heavy for her to load and quite honestly have not been reliable. The Tweeters have both blown (at different times) and the band has only gigged about 30 times... not good considering the cabs cost £600 each! Am I missing the point of active speaker cabs? .... Surely it is easier to have the amp either under the mixer... or be part of it?

    PA Suggestion...

    Thanks, I will look at the specs of those cabs. I was wondering about the Mackie Thump range? SRM650 ... 46lbs Thump 15 ... 36lbs. Thump 12 ... 25.5lbs. .... Possibly replacing her SRM's and Monitor with 3 lighter matching cabs that are somewhere in the 30lbs range? (Without compromising the sound quality too much).
  15. Hi All... My singer is looking to replace her PA and is not sure what to buy. She currently uses a pair of Mackie Active 15's (SRM650?) and a G4M 12" powered monitor with a Behringer 4 channel mixer. We only use the PA for three vocal mics. The PA works fine, but the cabs are way too heavy for her to load into her car before and after gigs. ... She is basically looking for something of equal or better quality and loudness, but lighter. We are not a particularly loud band and play pubs/clubs. Although her budget is not unlimited, cost is not the primary issue. Any suggestions please.....
