  • High-End "Portable" Tops....

    In certain situations where my full KS Audio system is not needed, I'd like to find a pair of high-quality tops.... (better than JBL PRX / QSC K etc...) Please make suggestions, advice, recommendations, etc... Thanks in advance!



    Requirements: Active, Under 60lbs, +130dB max SPL



    Currently looking at:

    DAS Avant

    RCF TT

    Meyer UPA (77lb)



    What else should I be considering?

    What do we know about Fulcrum Audio? Just found their FA line.

    http://www.fulcrum-acoustic.com/products/fa-portable - specifically the FA12ac.

      L-Acoustics... good look. Not sure why I forgot about them! Adding them to my comparison spreadsheet.



      Does anyone know of anyone that's done a high-end speaker shootout that's included higher end brands like these?

        If the price tag of the Meyer's doesn't put you off, they are pretty darned good sounding speakers.

            I'm also taking into consideration - "Serviceability". If something were to go wrong, I'd like to have a decent support network. Some of these super-small companies have awesome products, but I'd hate to have weeks of downtime if there was an issue. With that said, the RCF TT's are looking like pretty solid contenders.

              I haven't heard the Meyer UPA's, but I did hear very briefly the Meyer UP juniors, and I was completely smitten by the clarity and musicality of that box. Let me put this more succinctly, so there's no confusion;,,,, I was ****************in' blown away.

                Then Meyer might be an issue for you. As far as I know, all repairs are done in house on the West Coast which means shipping time might be 2 weeks alone back and forth.

                    JBL VP7212 sounds amazing! I did get to play with a RCF TT22 once, sounds awesome too. Db tech has a few speakers that should be right there in the cost and performance tier as well. DVX line I think.



                    Fulcrum is a few of the old EAW gang. I've heard a couple of there boxes, very nice. Nothing powered at that time.

                            Have not heard them personally but read good reviews of the BagEnd Opal. Slightly heavier (77lbs?) I own the Crystals which it their big brother.................very detailed, high efficiency.
