I'm thinking about buying a pair of Mackie SRM450v2's in the (hopefully) near future, and I was wondering what you all think of them? I have heard that the v1 designs had possible thermal problems, which should be taken care of with the v2's, but some of the reviews I've read point to other reliability with the new models. If I buy these, they will probably come from Sweetwater. I've also looked in to the THUMP (TH-15a) series because the price is attractive, but I really want some decent speakers that are going to last. I'm a bit skeptical on the THUMPS.
Their use will be mostly personal; amplifying a keyboard rig, maybe sometimes a small band that I am a member of (Acoustic/elect guitar, keyboard, vocals, djembe), and possibly a small wedding or two (and maybe use my JRX 12" boxes for fills if the venue is deep). Nothing really huge.
What are your opinions? The SRM450v2's are the highest my budget can handle.
