This speaker is a great value. We are using it as a drum monitor and it works fine. The limit light goes off at a fairly low level even with the output from the Roland drum kit turned down, but it is still more than loud enough for practicing in a house or even with amplified guitars and bass. It's sound quality is good. It has been used as a Bluetooth speaker and works well for that too. It gets a little distorted at higher volumes and the overall sound is not as good as a high end powered speaker, but this speaker is a fraction of the cost of a high end model.
