Decent speaker but look elsewhere for the same kind of thing.Anyone use the Mackie SRM150 instead of a wedge? Thoughts?
Any thoughts on comparable monitors?Decent speaker but look elsewhere for the same kind of thing.
The SRM150 unfortunately has a legendary poor reliability reputation. A local dealer told me that every one of their SRM150's sold - failed…within a year. 100% failure rate. From the amp blowing, speaker blowing, inputs not working etc etc. A band mate of mine has one too - and the amp is so distorted, it's unusable.
Do a search online for "Mackie SRM150 review" - and read all the negative reviews - they all relate to early break down.
There were several recent class D amps that had similar 100% failure rates. My brother often called me to complain that distributors were telling him to throw the amps out once the RMA room started to overflow. It was cheaper to ship a new one than 2xship + repair the old.Do a search online for "Mackie SRM150 review" - and read all the negative reviews - they all relate to early break down.
Yes, believe it or not (their long history of troubles with breaking gear withstanding) - I would recommend the Behringer B205D, as others have pointed out.Any thoughts on comparable monitors?

The 'new' Behringer (since they bought Midas/Turbosound/Klark) is getting a lot better. In this case their ripoff product is better than the original.
But if you'e looking for a REAL monitor, I would steer my money elsewhere and start looking at powered speakers from EV, QSC, JBL, Yamaha, etc.
These micro monitors are fine if they are for just you, or an acoustic duo maybe…beyond that, fuggettabouddit. Especially if there is a drummer playing while this thing is being used…it would be acoustically invisible.
if you put it on a mic stand, or something that gets it up at least waist level while your sitting, it will get plenty loud for you in the drum seat. You'll have total control over volume for each channel, too; i sometimes adjust even during songs. i'm really spoiled by the behringer hot spot. i think it would be perfect for you (and i have no vested interest).I am the drummer and I'm thinking of using it instead of a wedge....
