    Discovered this company on eBay.

    They have cabinets for Pro Sound in the monitor and PA arena. Anyone know anything about these guys? The reviews look believable.

    bump.


    I'm curious about this brand too, and this is the only archived message I found. Anybody ever try one? $99 for a 4ohm 2x10 cab.... hm.

    My band uses the 8" monitors for the drummer. They are cheap, and sound OK. Just OK, not stellar. They work fine for monitoring. They aren't real loud, nor too distorted. But for the price, they work fine.

    The only issue is that these speakers are 6 Ohms.

    BUMP!

    Im curious as well.... anyone else have experience with anything other than the 8" monitors?
     
  5. I know that I'm responding to an ancient thread, but it's still open; someone else could be searching for Vidsonix...
    My experience with Vidsonix so far has been excellent. I have a pair of the 8" passive PA speakers - Apollo 8. Powered by a used 200 watt mono Yamaha powered mixer. We use them for mic'ed vocals and acoustic/electric rhythm gui****. They're smooth, natural sounding, stay clean at high volumes, and built very tough. Nothing about them will take our breath away except the value.
    Occasionally, I even plug my bass into the mixer and practice through them when I don't want to use up my tubes' lifetime.
    I'm even considering their 15' powered speaker as a back-up.

    Don't mean to butt in but if anybody is interested, I have a pair of Vidsonix Super Nova 12's (powered) and one Vidsonix Powered sub and I absolutely love them. We have a 5 piece variety band and we have miked everything thru them, except for the bass and they are awesome plus they are light and easy to transport. Now granted we do play small outdoor like pigroasts and barbecues and small to medium indoor venues but I can't say that we have really pushed them so I can't really say how they would hold up to that but for us they work great. I'm going to get another powered 15 sub and contemplating the Apollo 8's too. By the way, the Super Nova 12's make great powered monitors for us as well. Hope this was helpful.
