Personally I would sooner never be in a room with any FBT product, they are dire.

EM EMS-121X sound nice, As do Nexo PS10/12s (the 15s suck) but remember you need the processor for them...

For your budget you are looking at lucky second-hand buys or pretty shoddy boxes in real terms.

I get some nice and second hand...




Yeah, glad someone else said it. FBT sounds like shit to me too. Might have quality bits inside but the powered ones processing is muddy as hell. Mate has some mid range Peaveys (4 ohm) and a big old UKB amp, knocks spots off every mobile speakers on sticks thing I've ever heard.
It's everything, not everythink!

I dont think there ever was a PS12. I've never seen one. Funny enough i heard the ps10s in a bar last night and they do sound good!
FBTs wooden boxes, the Mitus, the Verve range have always sounded good to me

My corporate box-on-a-stick gig days have gone through a lot of small boxes, from the Bose 802's days to now. For a budget box, the blackline kit is still my favourite. The nexo hf horn with its mis-shapen downward throw still doesn't do it for me, the pattern control seems to never quite do what it's intended to do, and coverage gets patchy, even more so when (due to the audience and room layout) you need to cover a wider area and try to array a pair Always had the correct processors and decent amps, yet never that impressed

Have always wondered why there was never a PS12. 8,10 & 15 never made sense to me..

It's just bits of paper flapping about in a box..

I assume PS15 to be used without subs and PS10 / 8 to be used with subs on a pole. depends on requirements of gig.
