Yep, that link works. That's a lot of drivers! How heavy is it?

Nice, Marty. I assume you have added the PB300 powered extension cabinet to the Flightcase? I have not heard this combination (although I have played a Flightcase, I think, many years ago) - I would expect a very tight and fast response from this combination. Ideal for your doghouse, no doubt.

16kg for the PB300 and about half that for the Flightcase. One in each hand..... sweet, even for my bad back, and the stage footprint is ridiculously small.

Yeah Tim1, that's what I've done. Played at the Otane Waitangi Day Market on Thursday, and I was in 7th heaven. Open air, big bottom end, sparkling top, nice mids, and all the eq knobs set flat. This combination is one of the options in the PJB website, so it's tried and true. Just used the Flightcase on its own last night at Te Rangi. Rich Nicholson said the bass sounded exactly the same at the back of the room as it did by the stage. Amazing "throw" for little 5" speakers. I love it.

Not to hijack the thread, but since I mentioned earlier here that my Minimark combo was back with Jansen for repair I should mention now that they did an excellent job and turned it round in a fortnight. All under warranty, no questions asked. Kudos to Jansen.
