Default Shock Wave versus Prairie Blaster

Have my Prairie Blaster and love it. What advantages does the Shock Wave have over the PB except for weight and the use of smaller batteries then the D size required by the PB. Are the sounds clearer? It is hard to amagin anything clear at low and high sounds. Why has it been discontinued? Thanks for looking..

Superior remote, great sound quality with 4 speakers and the ability to aim each channel where you want it.

Size and weight savings are probably going to be the primary benefits of making the switch. If you don't mind toting the PB I think I would just stay with it. Head to head I don't think the Shockwave can match the volume you are putting out with that PB. The TX-1000 is really nice but it drains batteries at a much faster rate than the TX-500, especially in the cold. I observed these characteristics personally when I had a similar conundrum about replacing my CS-24B with the newer CS-24C model. I ended up keeping my B because I place a higher value on audio performance capabilities than I do on extra functions. That's my 2 cents anyway.

I'll vote for the Shockwave anytime over the Prairie Blaster. It offers better quality sound with realistic sound out of all speakers. Also, you can direct your sound in the directions you prefer. The TX-1000 remote is the best available remote, period. If you set your remote up to conserve battery life, you should have no problem. You won't have any problems using rechargeable batteries in your remote. For the absolute longest battery life, use the lithium battery pack, and you might even consider using rechargeable lithium batteries in your remote. I know a guy in Alaska who does that and he is operating in much colder temperatures than most hunters.

As for volume, coyotes have no problem hearing any of the models, even when played on lower volumes.
