Guys all great stuff please keep it going. I have some K12's very happy with them. I too am swayed by the casters. The 2 way or 3 way tops with 4 subs I would think will get any bar I am in done and then some.

For me, KW153 over UCS1PB is the budget combo to beat.

Then, there is also a new contender comming: The Yamaha DSR series. They claim more amplifier power 1300 Watts.

IMO, Amplifier power in a powered speaker is a relatively meaningless spec. I care about output which comes down to pattern control, smoothness of response, and total output. I really could care less how the design engineers get to that result. It is not like I have the option to change the power configuration.

Agreed, especially now with both-amps-the-same-size method they are using.  I was happy to see Yamaha is not doing that -- even if the others are doing it for cost reasons, they are still using it as a marketing trick, which annoys me.

Anyway, if you do want to compare power I typically ignore the HF amp and just look at the LF amp, which is typically the limiting factor on SPL (along with all the other factors and issues with specs).  So now it's 850 vs 500.

You are talking about a 2dB difference in total output. Still a meaningless spec, pattern and frequency response is still what I want to hear.

I find it interesting people are so interested in the amplifier power of these yet unavailable loudspeakers, while the Yamaha site claims an FIR based crossover.

Hello........

I wonder if anyone would buy it if it did an honest 136dB with half that much power?

"No, that won't work for me.  I don't want a loudspeaker that's only 650 watts."

Sheesh......

I heard the PRX500 series at a concert I attended for the Gibson Brothers. Although a little light for the outdoor venue they were in, I was impressed by the output for the size. I decided the rent them for front fills at a couple of festivals I provided for this summer. I was further impressed having the chance to actually work with them.

When hearing JBL was releasing the 600 series at a lower price I was curious, but not yellow. Wink

I did the A/B test with my ears. Compared the 500 to the 600, also the ever popular Mackie 450, an FBT & Samson. (not sure of the models) For my money, the PRX 600 won.

One thing with the PRX 600 that I really like is the little blue light on front verses the big orange square that says, "I'm ON"

I find that very interesting.  I see no mention of the I/O delay in the spec sheet and also nothing about if there is an option to maintain linear phase response when using the companion subwoofer.
