    title says it all really, not for production, just for listening/djing but still loud...for use at house parties would be useful

    Me and a couple of housemates will soon be selling our 2 powered JBL Eon 15 inch PA speakers when we finish Uni, perfect for mixing and more than loud enough for parties. Probably be willing to part with them both for 400 sometime after Easter if you can wait until then.

    We will also include some high quality cables, and you can try before you buy. We should be having a final party with a "for sale" sticker slapped on them!

    (offer available to anyone else too, PM me if interested)

    for that money i suppose you wouldnt give a fuck really eh - and yeah maplins DJ gear is shoddy, and they charge alot for it IMO

    i would personally spend a little more though, and get some Tough, durable road worthy motherfuckers like the Mackies or JBL's - even those berhingers are pretty solid looking, and there actives so more space and less wires to deal with
