    i know that the kw153 has been discussed on these boards before and that a lot of people love them when combined with a a separate preamp / preamp pedal, but wanted to know if anyone here has any experience/thoughts specifically comparing an ampeg 8x10 + power amp (ie qsc gx5) to the qsc KW153 powered speaker (using a separate preamp/preamp pedal before them in both cases).

    i know the ampeg will push a lot more air and that it is voiced more specifically for bass guitar, and that the kw153 is smaller, lighter, and full range, but does anyone have any real world experience with the two that they can share beyond that?
