Curious how this is turning out for you. Also, who did you contact about warranty repair?

Sorry for not following up on this; the problems with the forums have kept me off for a while. We now have both Alto cabs, and have returned both GSR12 cabs. Our repair situation was handled by Joe Principe at Inmusicbrands.com, and he was a pleasure to work with. We've used the Altos for several gigs now. They are better sounding than I was expecting after having auditioned a pair in a music store a while back. The contour button helps quite a bit with the overall sound at fairly low volumes, but gets somewhat boomy at higher levels, much like the loudness button on home stereos. Overall the cabs sound reasonably musical for karaoke work. I haven't tried them in a live band situation yet, so no comment on that. I don't find them quite as transparent as the GSR12 was, and they are a little heavier, but they are quite usable with a little eq adjustment. I definitely prefer the sound of them to that of Eon15p cabs, B-- b215 cabs, and the Mackie SRM350, 450, and thump cabs I've heard. As for vocal monitor, I like the angle they sit at for monitor, and feel they would be fine in that situation as long as the drummer isn't rediculously loud. Hope this helps.

Yes, thanks! Do you find the overall clean volume to be similar to the GSRs? My main problem is that I own a pair of the 10s and a pair of 12s and I have had 3 bad woofer vioce coils so far, under very moderate volume levels. The 10s are past warranty so I put P Audio neo woofers in them. The 12s are still under warranty. The old warranty company for them told me to try Numark but I will try the company you dealt with. THANKS AGAIN!

Yes, I think the volume seems about the same. Speakers are comparable. Numark is one of the brands of inmusic.com, as are alesis, akai, m-audio now, and several others. Contact Joe Principe; he should be able to help you one way or the other.

I'm sorry to hear about M-Audio being sold. In the past I've really liked their products (bang for buck). I hope the quality doesn't suffer because of the sale (sounds like the service already has :-(.
Before I buy any more M-Audio products, I'll have to take a closer look.
Thanks for the heads up.

I have had the GSR10's out on five gigs (monitors) and so far so good. Pushed fairly hard at the last show by a band that makes their own guitars and nothing blew up... I should probably test them out as they were in the red for quite a while.
