Alto SXM 112a and The Box Pro Mon A12 monitors?

Quick bump for this topic?

 

I've been using an Alto TS112a and a Thomann MA120mkII for monitors. The MA120 has been very good as a budget monitor and the TS112a is a clear step up in quality. One thing I have noticed when using the TS112a as a monitor is that the sound can change quite a bit when moving around and I'm wondering if a coax design would be more consistent? Also, I think these wedge monitors look smarter for the posh corporate gigs.

 

Anyone have any experience with the Thomann A10 or A12 monitors?

No but Alto do a co-axial 12" monitor too, http://altoproaudio.com/products/sxm112a which is the same price as the TS112A, it isn't as loud as the TS112A (only 118dB against 122 continuous). On the strength of the TS range I'd say it could be a decent bit of kit.

Wow the Thomann A10 and A12 look exactly the same as the Proel WD10 and WD12!!

 

Interestingly I spoke to a dealer who also installs pa's into venues and they have replaced the Alto SXM112a's with the Proel WD12 in some venues. They found the Proel WD12 to be a step up from the Alto SXM112a in quality!??

Saying that, I spoke to a few dealers who all said they would use the Alto TS112a over the SXM112a for monitor's as they all found the audio quality to be noticeably superior!

I am pretty tempted to just stick with the TS112a's and the only thing that is putting me off is the cosmetics. I just think that the Thomann A10 and A12 would look slicker on big corporate gigs. The TS112a looks untidy from the rear because of the leads and connections being visible and it gets scratched easily when being dragged around on stage. The Thomann monitors have proper rubber feet so are more up to being dragged around and the cabinets are wood which can be touched up with paint to hide any marks. Also, the connections are hidden in the side which would look tidier.

 

Don't suppose anyone has had any experience with both the Thomann A10/A12 (or Proel WD10 and WD12) and the Alto TS112a?
