If you've seen my other topics, you've seen I'm switching for a slightly bulky (for one person) QSC KW rig (KW153 over 2 KW181 per side) to something more lightweight for my bar gigs and small outdoor festivals. I had been contemplating a system with 2 RCF ART722's over 4 SUB 718as speakers, but after some more research and thinking, I've been looking at the RCF HD32a and the SUB 8004as, with a single one of each per side. The tops would be almost half the weight of the KW153, and the subs are slightly heavier than the KW181, but they give a nice professional look and I've been told the 8004 would outrun the KW181's. Has anyone used either and can comment on them? Mostly live sound gigs, pretty much small bar bands and some small to medium outdoor festivals (plus depending on how these sound I may end up purchasing the 8006 with a bigger rig for my larger stuff)...they will be paired with ART 312a monitors (or possibly HD12a's at some point.And yes, I have seen the video reviews on them, it seems a lot of people like the HDL32a over the ZXA5 and the PRX600 series speakers.
I recently purchased a couple of RCF Sub 8004's. They go lower and sound louder than the 8003's I previously owned. I've actually used one 8004 in small venues where two 8003's were required for the same job (bands and dj's I usually work with). Recently one of the subs though suddenly stopped working, I guess for a probable factory defect, so I have to send it out to RCF for repairing.
I've never heard the Yorkville and QSC subs, the company I mainly work for has four JBL 618 XLF's, which are roughly equivalent to the RCF 8003's, but the 8004's beat the JBL's both in output and low freq extension... I'm really impressed with the performance of this sub
thanks for your reply.I am waiting for the Electro-voice ETX subs to come out in order to decide if I am going the RCF route or the EV-ETX route.Renard from Curacao
