Does anyone want to weigh in on these All-in-One "stick" units (like Bose L1, EV Evlove, Turbosound IP etc) vs more traditional powered tops/sub(s) systems. Been looking at PA gear for multiple applications/bands and I see the small stick/array systems are all over the place at prices (other than Bose maybe) that stack up against top/sub systems. After looking around a bit I feel like I could get a top/sub rig with 2 way 10's on top of one 2x12 cardioid Sub (2x QSC K10.2 + KS212c) for around $3600. Also looks like a stick system with 2xArray + Sub (EV Evolve 50) could be had for around $3500. Specs for both of these systems are pretty close to each other ... a bit of +/- on the low end extention, SPL and weight etc, but it would seem they would probably be pretty close in the real world ... at leas spec wise. So just for grins (and my information) does anyone have any real world/functional info on these 2 types of PA's to share ? Use case is multiple bands of widely varying music styles (jazz - americana, country rock, celtic rock). None of the bands are ear bleed loud, the PA would be used to get control over stage volume and better balance to the audiences we play for.
