RCF ART 310-A MK III 10" Powered PA Speaker (Discontinued)
The RCF ART 310-A MKIII is meant to be an active PA loudspeaker that can double as a reference monitor. To accomplish this, the speaker is equipped with two distinct voicings: flat and boost. The default setting is "flat", which is meant to be as transparent as possible so you here important details in the highs and mids without coloration and without the lows muddying up the signal. Pressing the boost button changes the voicing to offer more low end, making the speaker ideal for top use.
It features a 400W (RMS) amplifier that drives a 10" woofer and a 1" titanium dome tweeter, a combination that works well for small venues, and provide good monitoring for medium size stages and studios.

Many users report that the RCF ART 310-A MK III lets them hear sonic nuances that other speakers fail to convey. Reviews show that it works well for speech and music playback applications, and it also works well with acoustic instruments, rock bands and even DJs (when boost is activated).
Ironically, the flat sound which many people liked also raised a few eyebrows, as evidenced by a few users who gave lower ratings because they were looking for more low end on the flat setting.
Even though a lot of people have good things to say about the RCF ART 310-A MKIII, and we were recommending it until our December 2017 review of the category, there are now more highly rated options which we are recommending in our guide: The Best Powered PA Speakers.
