    Well, our band just had a member change. In doing so, we lose our practice PA. I have a board, but we need to replace the two JBL EON15's we were using. I was just looking at the following:

    Carvin LM12 or LM15
    JBL EON515, EON510 or EON315
    Peavey PRD15D
    Yamaha MSR250 or MSR400

    We'd be using it for vocals at practice but every once in a while we may need them for monitors on stage, etc. Love to hear any feedback. Is the Carvin gear any good or are we much better off with the JBL/Mackie gear? 12" vs 15"

    Thanks for the feedback!!!

    JBL EON515 is pure pro.

    Also check out the QSC K-series
    but watch their claimed wattage - it's not like you're going to put 500w into a mid/high horn.

    For practice and good $, check out some used Peavey SP II, or III.

    The OP is looking for powered speakers. If you can up your budget some look at the JBL PRX512m or QSCHPR122s. The K series QSC might also be a good choice.

    Check Carvin's E-bay store they have some LSx1502MA. The Carvin stuff ain't bad at all if you have a sane budget. You can spend more, but Carvin's will do you right.

    Decided on the JBL EON315's.

    How are the Eon315's working out for you? Did you get 2 315's or one active and one passive?

    We need new floor monitors and am trying to get as much info on these as possible. We play classic rock, male and female singer, 2 guitars, bass, drums, keys. Small clubs, 150 - 350 people.
