    I ran all 3 models through a battery of tests, it's a good speaker for many applications. Excellent cosmetics, nice fit and finish, pretty good sounding boxes (very middle of the road, similar to the MRX-500 series), the only real drawback IMO is that these current models are made of MDF which makes them heavier and more fragile than I would like to see. Then again, if that's not an issue for you, it's hard to beat for the price.

      This statement just pushed me real close to pulling the trigger. I was considering some used MRX 512's (was)

      A&H GL2800 console, BagEnd Crystals over D-18's, 12"and 15" BagEnd and EAW wedges powered and processed by QSC, Klark, BSS, Symetrix, Valley, Sabine, Peavey and BagEnd INFRA.

              I would suggest that with any MDF cabinets, anything resembling fly points are simply cosmetic in nature.

                  Looking at the crossover there seems to be 2 light bulbs to wick off the power should too much be applied to the boxes.

                  Are they soldered into place or can they be replaced in the field? One looks like it can be unplugged but with the other one its hard to tell.

                  Bulb type?

                          One bulb is a spare.

                              I agree, thus my removal of any and everything spec-wise on the cutsheets concerned with the seeming fly point resembling doo-dads.
