Hey guys,

I am going to buy an AltoTS112A for connecting my 11R direct during gigs and rehersals. From what I can tell, 12" is enough but the store has a 15" bstock with the same price. Is it worth taking the 15" or is it not worth the hassle (weight and maybe eq'ing if there is too much bass)?

When I compared the EV zlx12p to the zlx15p I felt I liked the responsiveness of the smaller speaker, but I didn't do any controlled tests. I haven't felt like I am missing any bass, though most of the shows I play I use it as a monitor and not as a PA speaker.. I do like that it is smaller and lighter!

Thanks for your reply. I dont know if this may sound mad but since i read that the altos are pretty accurate, would it make sense to also use them as studio monitors? ( i dont do mixing for a living, only for fun)

as long as you aren't doing critical mixing then the Alto's are fine.

When I was buying FRFR's at GC the rental guy told me his Alto 15's broke down a lot but the 12's where rock solid. I have an Alto 10 for duo I'm in and it's flat like my Jbl prx12's but the Jbl's are more articulate. I also have EV ZLX 12's too. Good for program material but I hate them for guitar monitoring. They are very scooped sounding and the dsp isn't much help..

One of the members of my tribute band is likely getting a couple of the TS 210A for some little acoustic solo gigs he does on occasion. He has borrowed my pair of 110A a couple of times and really liked them. Re the 210A, I'll tell you what I told him - try them first. Compare them to the 110A, if you can. Based on very early comparisons it MIGHT be that the 210A sounds brighter and more harsh.

Hey there. I ended up buying the old one cause I had a gig coming up so I could not wait. So far I am not disappointed smile the sound does not translate 100% into recording so I ended up tweaking my recorded sound a little but other than that i am happy smile
