Which Powered Tops
« on: January 08, 2018, 12:43:47 pm »

Looking for something "higher end" to replace our K12 tops.     Mostly for up to 500 person DJ events and small sound reinforcement on occasion.   Suggestions?

Search for "upgrade K12" or "upgrade mains K12" or "replace k12"

That said, DSR and SRX flavors are generally the upgrade option while staying int he pro-sumer <$1500 <90lbs & powered range.

Something not out of the budget range (stated), but rarely found in the prosumer market [as a suggestion, as JBL/Yamy/QSC owns the market] is the Martin CDD Live series 12" or 15" their unique coaxial differential dispersion design is actually innovative. Highly suggest that speaker!

Modest upgrade- JBL SRX powered series, Yamaha DSR112
Substantial upgrade with price to match-Fulcrum FA Series or RCF TT Series

Iím also in the search for this. I have k12s but I want to go to true pro level speaker.  The rcf tt is near the top of my list but Iím still trying to see what else is out there.

First thought: Look at 15's (I'd look at Yorkville http://yorkville.com/loudspeakers/elite/product/ef15p/) or similar for your larger DJ events keep the k12's for your small sound reinforcement (or monitors for your "big rig").
but beware...
Once you upgrade your tops, you will want to upgrade your subs.....

JBL SRX815p

A very nice step up from the K12.

the RCF Art745 is LOUD, good sounding, light and reasonably priced (I own four of 'em, first version). A couple of months ago or so, RCF also introduced the new NX models, which are basically a wooden version of their Art732 and 745 models (same components, same poweramp, enhanced DSP with FIR processing)

I'm in no way linked to RCF except for being a happy user of their products

Have experienced QSC K8, Yamaha DSR112 and RCF HD12, I think for the budget the RCF HD series is quite admirable and the headroom is quite high before clipping (the QSC already reducing its low end when near the limit, but quite hard to do apple to apple as the QSC is the only one with 8" woofer). Have seen the HD32a and SUB8004 sets being used on a mall ( 4 Heads + 2 Subs) and it goes quite loud there. If you need more forward vocals the HD32 is a better fit I think as it has 4" coil compared to 1.5" on HD12.

In the end, I would recommend you demo it yourself if possible. The latest QSC series have a new DSP management afaik and it may have different headroom compared to the older series (can't demo it here, import regulation block many new toys)
