What about Event TRS 8?

    I am thinking of buying a pair. I have A/B'ed many monitors the past two days, in many different price ranges and these sound great. Any opinions or comments would be helpful.

    I have a pair. I find them to be a little thick in the 2-3kHz area and there is a bit of port chuff at higher volumes, but other than that, I think they're good for the money.

    Yes, you'll benefit more from the larger scaled monitors. I've owned a pair of PS-8's for almost 3 years now and love the low end (35hz) these babies put out. They are'nt the loudess things out there but they really were'nt designed for that. IMO, Event has made a good series as far as the cost/performance ratio is concerned. So with that said, I'll see if I can get my hands on a pair of their 20/20 bas'. :D

    Question on your use of the Event PS8's - you say they're not that loud? When I use them, I have to put my master volume to -36 or I'll blow the roof off my house! The first time I plugged them in, I didn't know this - and just one note for about 5 seconds hurt my ears so much, I truly wondered about hearing damage. How could that not be loud?

    Michaelm, IMO they (the PS-8's) don't pack the "wallop" that their beefier counterparts have. Hey, they're only 70 watts for the woofer & 30 for the tweeters. Loudness is'nt what I go by when referencing a mix, but more-so a very decent balance of the individual components that compile the mix. Now if you said that about the 20/20 bas', then I can say we've got something here. They carry 130 watts on the woofer/70 watts for the tweeter. That should be enough for the ears I'd say.

    By upping the wattage from 70 to 130 and 30 to 70, you've increased the maximum output a whopping total of 3dB. That's if you happen to actually reach the amplifier limits which is incredibly unlikely. Most people are doing great if they get to 30 watts with peaks of 80 watts.
