Alto TX208 as wedge monitors for the whole band

Recommended Posts

I am considering using a pair something like the Alto TX208 Active PA Speaker as small wedge monitors for the whole band. Do you think they would take handle bass and DB ok for monitoring purposes? We are not superloud, but we often gig in tiny spaces. We find it tricky to position bass and guitar amps so they can serve as main source of sound for both monitoring and audience. Vocals and sax go through PA, drums are acoustic only.

What kind of band, what personnel, what is the size of "tiny spaces" venues?

I ummm'd and aaaaah'd for a long time looking at the TX208 (partly because of comments on this forum) but bought one last week and used it for a monitor at a gig at the weekend. It was brilliant - a really nice combination of sound quality, power and compactness (and price). Obviously, be aware of its limitations but I'd recommend one dependin on your actual circumstances as asked above.

Six piece with two singers, guitar, bass, sax, drums. Soul, funk, swing, ska, whatever else captures our fancy - no hard rock or metal. We like to try and gig in small pubs with no designated stage, so the smaller the better 

Sounds like I should just go for it. I was worried that the small box factor meant just distortion on the low frequencies if slightly pushed, but maybe not.

I play in an Italian rock’n’roll and twist band,so nothing loud.

Drums,bass,guitar,singer,trumpet and sax.

we have 4 of this speakers ,really great.If you use a medium low volume on the stage it’s a very good choise
