It's incredibly low price is obviously an advantage, but add to that its sound quality and light weight, then you have a viable mobile speaker solution for small venues. Reviewers agree in saying that this speaker has incredible clarity and sonic details, to the point that some even use it for their home studios as main monitors. And many appreciate that it weighs just around half compared to other speakers, making it easy to mount, setup and take down.
Given the price point, there's really not much to complain about, aside from the usual - plasticky exterior and lack of power which some reviewers have mentioned. There are those who complained about lack of bass, specifically for DJ music, but this is really not the speaker for those types of uses.
This is an entry level speaker for small venues and even bands to invest in when budget is limited. It can also be a good "filler" and backup speaker to carry around in case your main goes out during performance.
