QSC KW 153 VS HD1531 AND PRX 535

What do you think about this video?

Mark Rodriguez: QSC Speakers are way OVERRATED and to much money.. you said you used four of them for 600 people.. Lol.. i have 2 pairs of Speakers that I use for any gig and any amount of people.. I used 1 pair for 1,000 people out doors at a park in San Francisco.. they are called EV S18-3, each Speaker houses a 18" woofer 10" midrange and a high output baby cheek tweeter.. they are 30 years old and can handle upto 1,450 watts RMS each.. no subs needed.. my other pair I use once n awhile are Cerwinvega V35D's they too are 18" 3 way Speakers..... Lol, nothing like Oldschool..... Wooooooooooop woop.. MAKE SOME NOISE´╗┐

John Alfieri: Good post. I responded with more thoughts and my experience to Michael below. You said it all. I wholeheartedly agree ´╗┐

Justin Eddy: Thank you for trusting me!

djbakester: would two of them be ok for djing or do you need four

Justin Eddy: Four of the QSC kw 153 are going to sound the best just did one with four in the park for 600 people and it was perfect sound.Don't need subs if you have four and it will sound full.

kushy510: I agree I was a long time mackie user and when the HD series came out I was disappointed. I bought the QSC KW 153. It sound quality is way superior to any other speaker in it's price range. I think in terms of sound it is comparable to an EAW.

bugmarkus: @HarfordSound well i have 4 jbl prx 635 and they sound really good

norman palomino: HPR series are better in everything to K series , its has RMX amplifier great sound ,quality louder without hurt your ear

Royalorgans: @ Greenbudeddy Continue. Do you think that the QSC KW-152 or 153 would help. Which ones should I get and how many. I just wanting the audience to hear the most of what the keyboard can produce. I also want something that is clear enough that the audience along with myself will fill that they are actually in a cathedral when they maybe sitting in a small church that only seats 500. I want them to hear the drums as if a live player was up there.

Justin Eddy: @HarfordSound You will see

HarfordSound: Mackie's HD line makes any other powered speaker in that price range look like a toy. They're Gunness Focused boxes, and measure dead flat out of the box. The QSC stuff looks like a mountain range! The JBL PRX is just junk, with their plastic HF driver. If you use the Mackie's within their operating limits, they will be just fine. I've got a bunch that go out on rentals daily and get beat to all hell and they just keep going.

spinmoney101: for its size this speaker does give good bass, but i still sugest a sub would be highly recomended.

jpereztomasa: Can u put these on stands high or need to be low ??

reschla: Thank you so much for this video. My residency asked me to research speakers and these are the ones i chose!

JesusG90247: @GREENBUDEDDY 1

jihad421: are your qsc kw 153 still going hard? i know this vid is old but you sold me on them 3-ways i just ordered a pair!

Justin Eddy: @HarfordSound True if you are lucky

kidbanga10: Thanks for the info. Can't wait to hear them


Justin Eddy: @bugmarkus the prx sound good but qsc kla &kw's sound all around better!Just me!

Mary Bunny: no offence i heard them they sound great, im mean real great sound quality, but i heard them before they dont hit that hard on bass like your puttin out to be, they got good bass responce no dought, but i can name you out a speaker that purs like kitten. mad as fact they the best with bass EV Electro Voice I 25, except jbl srx n prx. they hit freakin hard, and gots great sound quality EV you wont need sub with there literally unless large venues EV force i 25 480$ i believe. trust me.

Dorin Buzdugan: so..the kw153 are the best active 3 way speakers? I'm using 2 mackie SA1530z. they sound really good. :-?

source5656: Dude... thanks and sorry for your experience. You helped me to make a better decision to NOT get the HD1531, HD1521 or HD1221 series. I have two HD1801, and I pushed them without blowing them but not for 8 hrs straight. I watched and read enough to stop with purchasing any more Mackies. Your videos were the icing on the cake after reading and viewing other video and blogs.

Justin Eddy: @ Then buy them and you will see when you use them they are not clean like kw"s .Sorry if you already bot them.

85bmw528eguy: How are they doing in 2013? I am considering purchase of (8)KW181s and (4)KW153s.

Royalorgans: @ Greenbudeddy. I need your advice. I'm a organ player who plays organ that have all the orchestrations from Pipe organ, Jazz organ, THeater organs. Orchestral sound, pianos and drums. considering that I play for churches and other small venues. I'm looking for a speaker that is not going to color the sound of whats coming out of my keyboard. Roland, Yamaha and other companies make keyboard speakers but they often sound like you playing through a soda can if you turn it up. Do you think this wil

Ruido Blanco: bla bla bla crap !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Robert Roberts: Hey Justin, I have a pair of K10's. Would you go with a pair of KW153 instead of buying a pair of KW subs and paring them with the K10's I already have?

Leo G.: I have 4 Mackie HD 1531 and 6 HD1801, all my partys goes from 12 to 15 hours continuous.. Dj's blast the speaker all night and I never had a problem with it. You need to know how to run this speakers well to keep it working safe and prevent damage. The sound quality of the Mackie 1531 are one of the best out there, good price, great build quality and custom-designed transducers by EAW. To Prevent overheating see what your speakers doing went you have a gig and monitor long time clipping.

Justin Eddy: Good for years to come QSC kw and kla

The1DJGray: I recently just purchased the prx 635's and they were awsome!!! crazy bass, great sound quality, and super light weight. but the first gig i took them to (which was a small elementary school dance) they both overheated in 1 1/2 hours. I returned them and got QSC's they have great sound and ok bass. I just wish that one of these companies would come out that had QSC's quality and JBL's aggressiveness

Justin Eddy: Still going hard

Justin Eddy: Two is fine

Kion Phillips: is it heavy? can you load it by your self?

Jose Gallardo: me gustaria que si puedes mandarlo en espanol porque real mente es muy inportante para todos los que adquieren estos equipos como yo con las mackies por favor

stewardsproductions: Thanks for the review on the QSC I was thinking of getting 4 of the 153s
