Nice review. Very informative. Especially comparing it to the beloved dsr112. Maybe sometime in the future it can be compared to the dB IG3T/IG4T

It appears rcf used the hf950 horn in the nx-45.

FWIW I have both the IG4T and RCF TT25AMK2 (very similar to the NX45)... both are excellent, the IGT4 is really a mid high box or vocals only. It has a very small visual impact, wide dispersion and throws well. In terms of sound quality its very "nice" with a warm smooth and detailed sound.  It will make quite a bit of SPL especially on top of a sub crossed at 120 Hz. Two boxes stacked on top of each other works very well and you get almost 6 dB more SPL and some beam steering. This works much better that sticking two 12+ horn boxes side by side that I see so often.

In comparison the TT25 is louder has more bass but the HF is not quite as detailed. Its a great general purpose 15 and horn, about as good as it gets, it makes a great wedge, small drum fill or FOH. I often used it for side fill with or without a sub or as a small FOH.

The IG4T shines when you need minimal visual impact, excellent throw and a wide coverage angle.

Both boxes are excellent, but they are really designed for slightly different applications. I have not heard the IG3T to comment on their performance.

Thanks, Gordon, for such a thoughtful review. I've been looking to move on from my QSC KW153s, which have served me well over the last nine years. Though tempted by RCF's sexy line array offerings, a point and shoot box is better suited for my purposes, and your insightful review helped convince me that the NX 45-A fits the bill. We also have four KW181s that could be replaced with a pair of RCF subs, and I hope to find a similarly excellent review to help me with the decision. Kudos to you and the countless other reviewers whose fine work on PSW helps combat buyer's remorse.

Hi Mike, did you ever get the NX boxes? If so, how do you like them?

I absolutely love mine. I still have the DSR's and use them for delay stacks in larger rooms or sometimes as stage wedges. The NX-45's have caused me to approach my mixing in a slightly different way. Because they are more detailed, I can hear/notice distortion more easily when it occurs, so I don't drive any mixer channels quite as hard as I used to.
