My favourites so far are the ones I've built. 2x10" + horn, similar layout to a JTR 3TX, different drivers.

I've got it so you can block some of the bass ports to change the tuning. 1 open gives 50Hz, 4 open gives a peak at 90Hz. When you knock the peak down, there's a lot of headroom in the kick region. Leaving one open and boosting the bottom end a bit gets a usefully full-range sound that's fine for smaller gigs.

I did just trip over a step and drop one on my ankle, though, so we're not best friends at the moment.

There's not much Danley stuff in my neck of the woods, but I keep an eye out.

For anybody still guessing, the speaker I'm talking about is the Danley SM60F.

That is the #1 selling Danley box.

Hey guys & girls,

    The speakers that I use all the time, that have paid for themselves over and over and over again are my JBL MRX 512's. I pair these with a Crown xti4K  and the they just get the job done. They aren't my favorites as far as sound, that would be our VTX monitors, but the MRX's weigh 34lbs each and are consistently used for gigs under 250 people or so. They are 70 degrees conical, have been dropped, rained on, and require very little processing to sound decent. Yeah, they have a bite to them that needs tamed, but once that is taken care of the money rolls in. Probably the best financial purchaseI've ever made for the business.

Agree on the MRX512s.  Inexpensive, light, easy to mix on, and they cover the small gigs very well.  I had used them as wedges for a few years until recently - deployed them as a PA and they really surprised. 

For more output Fulcrum DX1565s make me smile, 90lbs and FIR required but worth it.

Professionally, I'm very impressed with d&b Y7P. Light, loud, stick-able.

constant directivity all the way to intercept frequency, and flat as a ruler with a tight impulse response.

Personally, JBL4412 is my favorite loudspeaker for listening enjoyment. This stands until Tom and Ivan can get me a living room pair of SH50. In cherry veneer if possible.

I am not sure.  It was just a comment made by the salesmanager a couple of weeks ago.

It is used a lot in installs.

I think the TH118 and the OS80 are others near the top.

The SM80 is very popular, but the OS80 sells many more because of the stadiums, large and small.

Some stadiums use a large number of them.  A typical HS football stadium may use 3 or 4, while a 100,000 seat stadium may use 20 just for distributed fills.

Sometimes a school will do several athletic fields at one time-so a large number are sold that way.

Typically SM80s are sold 2 at a time.

Shut up and take my money.
Here is the sub-TH50 (can't find photos of the SH50s) for a high end home setup in piano white.

It was for a Arab Sheik in his glass/chrome apartment.
