Long story short, I'm sick and tired of blowing out my ears are shows and I want to move to using IEMs. Nobody that I play with (except the country bands) is prepared or even willing to make the investment to try them out but I'm really keen on it for a number of reasons, including reducing my stage footprint. All these cats are like "turn your bass up! Bass needs to be felt," and here I am saying, "I can hear myself fine - turn yourself down and you'll hear me better." Or, "the bass is to be felt by the audience. This here amp is just a monitor." But nobody listens. I'm thinking that if I just do it (rock the IEMs), they'll be forced to ask FOH to put bass in their monitors, thereby making them take responsibility for crafting their own mix, rather than having me blow my ears out for their benefit. What's a guy to do?
