    I was considering buying a couple for my band actually i run the LS2153 mains and LS1801 subs and they sound great.

    I have the PM12 monitors and they are great. Carvin is a lot of bang for the buck.
    I would buy the LS series with little hesitation.

    That's kind of what I was thinking.

    Are there any other better recommendations for stage monitoring in this price range?

    I have never had a problem with any Carvin gear. Good stuff for the money.

    Same here. I sold mine with some other gear a couple years ago, and was thinking of replacing them with a couple of the LS...as my needs lead me that direction. I recently bought a used Carvin C1644 board with anvil case and am tickled pink with it (especially the price). Great bang for yer buck on most Carvin PA gear ;)

    I Have used Carvin monitors for years....I also use those monitors at our church and they sound great for the price. Can't go wrong.
    Good Luck.

    The one I want to hear is the TRx12N. Quite a bit more money though.

    I've been using the LS1503's for years. IIRC, the price has come down as of late....<$300 / cab maybe? Everytime we load out, I tell the bandmates "...man, I'm glad I didn't pay a lot for this stuff".

    mcapote, I'm thinking about this same setup. Chaining two LS1801's through a Crown XLS2000. Are/were you satisfied in the long run, with this economic configuration?
