    I have the LS 1503 mains enclosures. They're solid, a good value, and sound pretty decent. I have no experience with the other components mentioned.

    Never had a problem with any Carvin pro sound gear I have come across.

    I'm not the biggest fan of their powered mixers...I've had one go into thermal protection too many times to consider it reliable or bomb-proof.

    I think their non-powered mixers are pretty sweet. Good preamps and routing options. The 12" powered monitors are the molded plastic ones? Good options and a decent amount of power for the onboard amp.

    I had a C1644 mixer for a few years. It was an Okay for the money and trouble free. I sold it to another band who used it for 2 years before upgrading and as far as I know it still works fine.

    Every single piece of Carvin gear that I own or have ever had my hands on, I am tickled to death with. I so wish they had a store in Tennessee. Besides, "MADE IN USA" goes a long way with me. Customer service is quite good as well.
