question

what kind of amplifier do I use for these speakers?
Asked by: Michael S.
I would recommend the QSC GX3 300 Watt 8 Ohm Power Amplifier, (B&H # QSGX3,) for a two-speaker set-up. If you require several speakers, I would pair them up with a 70- volt amplifier. Please contact one of our representatives for a specific model, based on your requirements.

question

Where are these speakers made?
Asked by: Anonymous
Sorry, I've already got them mounted up to high to be able to find out where they are made. We had them installed a year ago and they work and sound awesome!
