    Are these good speakers? I would like to use them with a Bag End P-S18E-I 18" powered subwoofer and use it with their Infra Integrator which will give bass down to 8hz. Are the DB speakers a good match for the Bag End? And if so, which model of 12", they make quite a few. I will be using this for small clubs with my band. I need quality, not volume. Thanks.

    I am also searching for reviews of the DB technologies Opera Live series. I also need quality speakers for small live situations but mainly for our rehearsal studio (mainly for voice, acoustic instruments but also maybe for the whole band mix-through a mixing des, I mean)
    Do you have any idea if a 12 inch speaker should be followed by subwoofers? In which occasions? If you'd like have a look at my post "active speakers comparison".

    dB Technologies / Behringer

    I noticed that their passive stage monitor is almost identical to the Behringer EUROLIVE F1220:

    dB Technologies may be selling OEM speakers with their badge on it or ist's just a coincidence that the two look similar?

    I also compared the specifications of both and some of them are the same?

    I have not had any experience with it. They do not have a big presence or dealer network in the USA. But, from what I am hearing second hand, from other buddies and contractors, is that it is ok entry level stuff. Don't push it to be what it isn't. If you need down and dirty, blue collar weekend warrior stuff, then you are ok. But it is not heavy duty, high performance stuff.

    Buy Peavey. Atleast you know that the stuff will work forever, and you will have some of the best support in the industry. They will tell you where the stuff is made as well. No smoke and mirrors.
