The QSC K8.2 blew me away when I heard it, punched way above its size IMO. I wouldn't be surprised if the same could be said of the Yamaha DXR8 but I haven't heard it. The DXR8 may be the best value right now because the original models are currently selling much less than the new mk2 version ($150 less at Sweetwater, for example).


The K8.2's are now my standard small-stage monitors, I absolutely love them & haven't had a single complaint all summer. Replaced my collection of K12's with those (and one pair of 12.2's for when they're appropriate).

I have a single DXR8 that the guitar player uses as a stage monitor. It is amazingly loud, clear and surprisingly has good bass response too. I once had to use it for FOH when I had a speaker go down in a small venue. It looked really funny but it did a great job!

I wanted to consider something in a smaller sized enclosure, but Mike Pyle gave me a price on a dxr8 that I could not turn down. Thanks for all the input.

For what youíre describing the Bose S1 would be a great fit. I busk, and brought it primarily for that, but itís a great Bluetooth speaker as well.

The Bose is OK if you don't need much volume. For background music it is ok or for a guitar. I found it doesn't do great with vocals and clips fairly easily when you sing through it. I compared it to my DXR8 and it ws night and day. DXR is much, much louder and sounds less hyped than the Bose. I was expecting better/clearer mids from the Bose to be honest. DXR8s are amazing little tops, especially when hi-passed of course in bigger applications.

I had my first run with DXR12s a couple weeks ago, and was surprised to hear how loud the fans were, and that they ran all the time. Is that also true of the 8s?

I believe they run all the time - not home to check- but Iíve never noticed mine being loud at all. My PRX712ís are louder.

I do believe they run all the time, but I can hardly hear them unless i'm in my little "studio" and it's really quiet otherwise. You would never notice at any gig IMO.
