    Default mackie thumps a good buy?

    Hey all im looking to upgrade my 2 little numark nmp5 monitors to a larger louder speaker so that i can start doing house parties. Looking to buy a loud powered speak locally and wondering if the Mackie Thump series is a good choice? How well built are they, can they take a bit of over driving the amplified, how loud are they, etc?

    I went out and bought a Behringer b212d ($300 or so) and you can say what you want about Behringer but ive put that thing through hell and back on my broke-ass student budget and it wont quit. Thumps are supposed to be better than the b212's so I would imagine they're a good investment although ive heard they can sound muddy.
