When it comes to column personal PA system design, Samson doesn't mess around. Their Resound VX8.1 comes loaded with eight 3.5" speakers arranged in a mini line array atop a 12" subwoofer. This gives you low frequencies down to 40Hz. Backed by a mighty 700-watt, Class D amplifier, the Resound VX8.1 can blast out 125dB and cover up to a 200º spread. A 3-channel mixer accommodates everything from singer/songwriters and soloists to small bands, and you even get Bluetooth playback — perfect for playing along to backing tracks. And when it comes to holding up to regular use, you'll be hard pressed to find a tougher column PA on the market.
