    Hi guys,

    I have a couple of Peavey 12-M floor monitors that have poor speakers. Their problem is that to hear them I need to pump my volume to around 75%. This is without a band playing in the background. After that, for the next 25% they turn up to a moderate volume, but not great, and they sound bad. They are also very small, at around 1ft^3.

    I would like to change them perhaps to eminence alphas since I am using these with a lower powered power amp. Can anyone tell me if these speakers will have a decent volume in a box this small? (They will be monitoring vocals only, so they don't need to go low)

    I think Eminence actually designed the LF versions of their other speakers...as in Delta 12LF, for use in monitors with small cabinets.
