I've also been considering upgrading from a very old EV 3way & single 18 sub per side to the 695z. I thought I remembered EAW telling me that a small modification/grill replacement I think, would convert it to a 650 for use with additional ones later on. I may be wrong. If anyone is using these around Houston let me know. I'd like to hear them. - kelly
: Good Evening, Gentlemen:
: I recently purchased a pair of KF695z's to add to my 650z array. I wanted to have the power of my 650's when I only had room for two cabinets. I absolutely love both models and enjoy the way they play together. I have had many shows where I have used the 695's to cover the main seating with a pair of 650's filling the narrow balcony. I love the flexibility of different coverage angles, or the ablility to use just two boxes (KF695z). If you just want to start off with a couple of cabs, I recommend the 695's as I believe the 650's work well with them should you decide to add to your inventory.
: Good luck,
: : : I am planning on upgrading my current rig with EAW KF series speakers, starting small with the purchase of two top boxes. I will be adding additional boxes at a later time as required. At this time the boxes will be ground stacked, in venues of less then 1000 people. I would like opinions on weather it would be better to go with the Kf650z or Kf695z.
: : : thanks Doug J.
: : Doug,
: : I'm considering the same upgrade. I've decided that when the time comes I'll get a pair of 695's. If you grow and have a need for multiple speakers per side, you'd probably be better served with the 650's and use the 695's as sidefills or as a top box in a drumfill. JMHO.
