Subject: [Puptcrit] lightweight speakers

With all due respect, I'm not sure that using Bose products is the way to go.  I'd be tempted to use them because of their incredibly light weight, but would be nervous about the fact that they're not made for the rigors of "on the road" touring - they're made to sit in a backyard.

I have a Bose wave radio in my workshop, and I'm very satisfied.  But a recording engineer friend scoffed when I bought it, claiming that I could have purchased something of similar quality for far less.  I've since learned that he was right - and believe me, he is very, very experienced and very well known in the sound recording industry.

Here's what he says about Bose, and here is his recommendation...

"I would not buy anything from Bose. Everything they sell costs three times 
what it's worth. Bose is for rich suckers. As they say in the hi-fi world, 
'Bose Blows.' They also say, 'No highs, no lows, must be Bose.'

Okay, now that I got that out of my system, I suggest you get a pair of JBL
Eon speakers. The smaller model with a 10-inch speaker is probably perfect."
