Bob Kidd:
So was looking at adding to additional system with SRX 828s when I came across company having brand new 728s (assuming got some directly from JBL), my main system is the 700 series and love it. Powered 828s or go back to 728s, tough call.

I would go 728s because you wont have issues when the amp module dies in 6 years.

I found the srx828s had a lot more punch with less power than the srx728s but they were a LOT heavier.

You referenced the SRX828S, but then referenced a powered 828s (828sp).  If you are talking about the powered version, I would stay with the 728S cabinets.  Being passive has their advantages.

I think the 828sp cabinet is good, but in my experience from hearing them at shows/gigs, they don't seem to perform like the 728S.  I would probably take an 828S (passive) over an 828sp.

Bob,

I agree with Bob.  I can't really put my finger on it, but the 728's just seem to have more "in your face " raw subbage.
