Re: OT: Hey Loopers< MF is blowing out Mackie SRM 350 p.a.portable PA speakers

I bet if you did a blind A/B/C test with Mackie's, JBLs, and the RCF, with 
10 different musicians, you'd get a different response from all of them, 
just in terms of their favorite speakers, but the nuances of each. So, I'd 
support whoever said early that it is basically personal preference and 
to his own. The responses on this list basically prove the point, given 
preferences. It may be that one speakers enhances a particular frequency 
another, goes higher, goes lower, sound "smoother", sounds better with 
instrument vs. that one...but most of that is subjective in light of what 
"better".   I bought the RCFs because I had the cash and I hear good 
about them. But I've played through JBLs and Mackies, and I can get the 
sound I want out of all of them - mainly because I have not narrowed the 
criteria for "my sound" down to a gnat's ass such that only one particular 
brand of speakers satisfies me. What a miserable box to paint myself in, 
I had done that. I would be a realy sore ass for any sound guy who didn't 
bring my favorite speakers.   If I were that picky about the particular 
sounds of a PA, I'd be constantly frustrated whenever I played and I had 
control over the house PA, the PA of the outfit running sound, etc. I have 
tried to mellow out a bit in terms and not be such a premadonna about a 
sound systems. Basically, if they are by one of those 3 or 4 top brands, 
in stereo, I'm happy.  I can tweak my EQ in my compter or on the board if 
think things are that out of whack...but they never are for me with those 
top brands.
