    These speakers are the best i have used when it comes to smallish user friendly speakers!
    (by that i mean speakers that are small enough and light enough to move without a team of roadies, but still be loud enough while sounding good!)

    The K12 are really great for tops and a pair of K10 does wonders for monitors.

    All off topic speakers smell bad. Try Live Sound forum.

    You can find some hellacious deals on the SRM450v1 Powered Cabs on ebay, those are really good speakers (nice and light, too!!)

    Peace,

    What makes "Off Topic" a better forum for this topic than is "Live Sound"? :confused:

    I just don't get it... :rollno:

    i have heard them at a trade show, and they surprised the hell outta me...they sounded great. the only question mark i have is reliability. EV doesn't havbe a strong record in their "cheaper" equipment, in the higher end stuff its phenomenal. but the LIVEx series looks pretty promising and at a great price.

    Mackie 450's or Thump 15's for mains. Thump 12's for monitors. My band has been using them for over a year and no problems. Good price point and MF runs restocks on Stupid Deal of The Day quite often.

    I'm testing the Alto 10s for monitors right now... currently "good enough" to get the job done.
