    I actually used them over July 4th weekend...not bad at all for small gigs IMO and I'm very picky about sound.

    I've had the 12"s for over a year and even after being rained on and rolled around in the bed of a truck on several occasions, they still look and work excellent. Probably the most durable out there. Combined with a minidsp and 18" subs, I have the best sounding mobile rig in the area (that I've heard).

    I wasn't impressed by their subs. Instead I opted for some unpowered harbingers since I had a few matching amps lying around.

    Another great feature is that they are designed to be stacked and bolted together and ran in a daisy chain configuration. A few guys in my dj group also have the 12"s and when we do large venues, we'll stack them to the ceiling or lay a few on the floor for use as monitors.

    Nice wonder if the twelves will stack onto the 15s although I want 2 of each to do more spaced out 2 at 25ft and 2 at 50ft

    It would probably sound better if you stayed with one size. Multiple speakers will create a flatter sound and possibly even hit lower. The Altos do ok with most bass heavy music, but I would invest in subs before getting a second set. If you cross them over at 80hz you can get a much louder cleaner sound out of them before clipping and you may find that two are plenty. So my advice would be to invest subs and an active crossover.

    Yeah here's how it's played out originally ordered 2 12s from a supplier we use at work... Been on order for over a month since its coming direc from manufacture I found a relatively local shop that has the 15s in stock. My thoughts were wait and see and maybe keep all 4 but likely will just get the 2 15s.

    http://www.axemusic.com/store/produc...way-Crossover/ something similar to this coupled with a sub is what your suggesting instead of keeping the 2 12s?
