    Pa speakers are used at concerts for their efficiency. They need to be able to fill a large area with a great deal of sound.
    It would take an whole lot of inefficient car speakers to do what one pa cabinet could do. I mean the average car speaker is what...about 89db@ 1w/1m..where as the average pa cab is....101-108db@ 1w/1m?

    Now for home audio, I have yet to see good, quality company's use pa drivers.....
    Infinity...no, McIntosh....no, Polk....no, Mirage....no...

    Well you have Klipsch....very efficient but do not sound all that great. (*some* newer stuff is *ok*)

    Why do we need a 150+ DB of bass...... Bass is such a tiny percentage of the frequency in music.

    Find a high quality in home system and you will not see any PA.

    Some of us like it loud...I can honestly say 147-148 on music isn't really that much for me. I love the lows and being to feel it is a big part of it. Also, saying bass is a tiny percentage of the frequency range in music isn't exactly fair, since sound is logarithmic. The difference between 10kHz and 20kHz is 1 octave, and the difference between 30hz and 60hz is 1 octave as well, but that's a 10kHz difference vs. 30hz difference.

    To answer this, No, it's not cool to have distorted mids/highs whether it's car audio or pro audio speakers.

    I like my lows too but I preffer my mids and highs to over power my substage and I use big PA speakers to do that. And very good point about the frequency range. Never thought about it like that.

    Re: So is it cool now

    I don't think most of the people in this thread
    A. Know of mlstrass which is why people aren't listening to him.
    B. Have heard more than their buddy down the blocks system with PA or maybe never heard any at all minus some hood rat driving by
    C. even experimented with them

    they are HUGE in Florida.. that being said they have been around for quite some time now and LOTS of people have figured them out and making them sound great and getting louder than car audio speakers could imagine.. I used to be in the same boat of oh they sound awful and couldn't EVER sound good.. Until I started hearing some people who have BEEN doing it for a while..

    No you offered up YOUR opinion, which you're entitled to, but that does not make it a fact.

    I need 8kw because I have 72 mids/tweeters in there and prefer to have "too much" in the way of power and speakers so I don't have to push stuff to the point of distortion...

    I like the idea of having head room on all your speakers so they last, but WOW 72 mids/highs....I'm sure you get some jaws to drop.
