Re: Help Save a Mackie SR 1530 empty Cab.

I think you are in the ballpark. They will get extremely loud on just 50 watts.

I'm currently running the 2 JBL JRX125 and 2 Cervin Vega Subs. Having done two gigs in the last two weeks on JRX boxes (the 2-15 ones), I and tell you in no uncertain terms that my OT12s leave 'em in the dirt in volume and clarity.
