Post by: adrianed on October 16, 2021, 02:31:35 AM
Hi folks,
Christmas coming up so have been thinking about better speakers for my T5
I have read about the members mentioning Bose, (ie is there L1 or something )
Could I get advice which to get
I use the keyboard mostly for in home events ie parties and private playing
Also presume I need two, advice please
Will they be a worthwhile improvement ?
Might also need advice how to connect them to the keyboard Being as I shall not be using the existing Yamaha Woofer
Thankyou in advance,
Adrian

Bose speakers are very expensive. I have used Yamaha stagepass for years and are very good sound wise as they match up with the keyboard perfectly.

The Bose array systems get great reviews but are pricey. However other comparable array systems have now entered the market at lower prices. The Maui 5s were probably first and some forum members have them and rated the performance at least as good as Bose at significantly less cost. And there are now others like Sound Town, Carpro etc. at even lower prices and you can find reviews on some on utube. These array systems seem to have the advantage of covering a wide range of venues from small parties to larger gigs without being heavy, awkward to carry and set up, or breaking the bank.

I donít know how anyone can answer that, they can only compare ie I like them better than this, or not as much as that. Their is no absolute, and they can only give their personal opinion. If they own them they probably like them, but that doesnít mean much. Like we say on the forum over and over, you have to hear them and make your own assessment.

The Tyros and Genos speaker systems are "better than their reputation". For most users, they are completely okay for "just playing". You can (must) use the Master EQ of the keyboard to get the desired sound.

But the Tyros/Genos speakers are not studio monitor speakers. If you want to create mixes that also sound good when played on other sound systems, you will need good studio monitor speakers (and also good studio headphones). With studio monitor speakers / headphones I recommend setting the keyboard's Master EQ to "Flat" and either leaving the Master Compressor on the "Natural" preset or switching it off completely.

Depending on the volume required, the Tyros/Genos speaker systems can also be used for a smaller group of listeners. But since you usually cannot know beforehand whether the available power will really be sufficient, I recommend using an appropriate PA system straight away. The market for this type of active loudspeakers (regardless of whether it is a column system or conventional speakers) is now huge, so that no general recommendations can be made here in the forum.


Best regards,
Chris
