Deep Sea Sound
Well that's you're first problem, calling these PA speakers. These are high efficiency speakers designed by a guy with a pro audio background but they aren't PA speakers. Now the JTR speakers are more industrial looking but the Seaton Catalyst 12 is a good looking speaker in the same vain. Now, if you want to call the Danley some people run in their home theater a PA speaker, well, you'd be correct.I'm just astounded that PA speakers, the ones we normally associate as loud but terrible sounding cheap speakers, would have drivers that cost so much more than normal speakers.
I'd definitely be interested in auditioning the 212 if I have a chance. Recently I've heard of some incredible sounding (sound signature wise) PA speakers that's really getting my attention to try a PA type speaker. If anyone in California is willing to give me an audition, please let me know. I'll bring beer!
