PA systems comparison
« on: August 10, 2014, 05:11:14 am »

We're going to have open-air party (50-100 people) for which we'll have to rent PA system. We're going to use notebook + midi controller for music source and we'll probably play electronic/house music mainly. Since we're a limited by transport, system should be as small as possible while as loud and as quality possible. I've got several offers but these 3 are in my top selection. Please note that 3rd one is almost 2x more expensive, so 1st or 2nd ones should be preferred.

1st:
2x EV ZLX12P
1x subwoofer FBT MAXX10SA

2nd:
2x Wharfedale SH1294
1x Wharfedale SH1500

3rd:
2x Martin Audio V3X
1x Martin Audio WSX

I don't have much experience with PA systems, so I was wondering if you could please advise me on which system to go with? Thanks in advance!

Well, in order of preference:

the Martin is pro standard gear

The EV / FBT is borderline music shop / pro but is mismatched and won't couple together that well.

The Wharfedale is cheap junk best suited to a bedroom DJ or a dodgy wedding function band.

In short, you get what you pay for....

Are you sure that the V3X is a correct model #?
