Great deal on a great speaker

Your general opinion of this product.
I bought this speaker to use for solo acoustic gigs. Set-up is like this: mic and guitar into a small mixer, with a reverb unit patched in, and the output goes through a compressor on its way to the speaker.
The sound quality of this speaker is outstanding, with crystal-clear highs and enough lows to represent the body of the guitar. I'm very happy with the sound coming from this speaker.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The speaker is light, but seems built fairly well. The volume knob seems a little light-duty. The provided power cord is way too short to be useful when the speaker is elevated on a stand.
But, the speaker sounds great, and I'm sure it will perform flawlessly for years.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Very easy to use. Just plug the mixer into the input jack on the speaker. Be careful, though, with the mic/line switch...the labeling is a little confusing as to which position is which when the button is engaged. The contour switch makes it easy to get a nice, simple "smiley-face" EQ which sounds great with voice and acoustic guitar.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The best features are the sound and the light weight. Very easy to carry in/out of the club.
It would be nice to have more than one input.
How is the tone?
Stellar tone. Crystal clear and transparent. It's like playing through a decent studio monitor.
Mackie Sound, you can't go wrong!
