Don....yes I did at that time it was ok....but after a few months & various gigs is where the truth lies.......I never said it was bad ...I said it wasn't for me & my setup & transport tolerance & needs at my I went in another direction that suited me better.....the BOSE PAS is NOT the "answer all" issue sound reinforcement gear for sure.....on a 1-10 scale I give it a strong 7 1/2. Hey if it works for whomever ...more power to ya!
