Carvin PA Speaker Model 805-1 10 w/ Horn Reviews 5

I PICKED CARVIN BECAUSE AFTER COMPARING OTHER SIMILAR SMALL P.A. SPEAKERS, CARVIN SEEMED THE BEST. I NEVER BOUGHT SIGHT UNSEEN BEFORE BUT WHEN THEY ARRIVED I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED.THEY ARE MADE OF PLYWOOD SO THEY ARE MORE DURABLE,EXCELLENT WORKMANSHIP,MADE IN USA,AND ONLY 156.00 INCL.TAX AND SHIP.AND THEY ALSO HAVE A CROSSOVER AND SPEAKER PROTECTION. YOU DONT FIND THAT IN LOW END SPEAKERS

THEY ARE VERY LIGHT AND SOUND BIGGER THAN A 10 INCH SPEAKER CAB SHOULD,REALLY!! METEL CORNERS,REAL HEAVY GUAGE GRILL AND METEL POLE SOCKET.AND THE CABINETS ARE TUNED SO THAT THERE IS A REAL DECENT LOW END.IT HAS A FIBERGLASS HORN FOR THE TOP END

NOTHING

PLYWOOD CONSTRUCTION BETTER AND LIGHTER THAN PARTICLEBOARD. PLY WOOD IS STRONG.THE QUALITY IS EVIDENT.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS FOR A LITTLE OVER 150.00 EA. YOU GET A GREAT AMERICAN PRODUCT WITH MATERIALS THAT WERNT SKIMPED ON PUT TOGETHER CAREFULLY. I AM A BASS PLAYER AND WHEN I PLAY A REAL SMALL GIG I USE ONE OF THESE SPEAKERS FOR MY BASS SPEAKERCAB. DONT LAUGH I PUT A GALLIEN KRUGER HEAD TO IT AT MODERATE VOLUME OF COURSE AND WHAT A TIGHT PUNCHY TONE I GET. IT HANDLES IT WELL. I KNOW THERE NOT MADE REALLY FOR BASS GUITAR BUT THEY WILL WORK FOR A REAL SMALL GIG!!!
