I’ve read that as well. The purpose for mounting the amps outside is so you can trim the highs, lows, and total volume without having to pull the monitors out. There are very few manufacturers putting these controls on the front of the monitor. My Events require a small philips screw driver to make adjustments. It’s a pain making small adjustments and then retesting when you could put REW in SPL and set one monitor at a time. If you have a better process I’m all ears. And I mean that sensorily. I don’t know it all.
