Willie-O Tech: Powered PA Speakers? (18) RE: Tech: Powered PA Speakers? 13 Aug 09

Ah crap, I wrote a long reply to some of the valuable offerings you have made, then lost it in "post" somehow. In short: thanks Bernard for the other-side-of-the-rental-desk viewpoint, and thanks for the Fishman link, Seamus. I've seen that rig in action and it's very good.

So far of the stuff I tried in-store, I am actually most impressed by the EV Force, nominally a monitor, but they just sound and feel right as light-weight mains. $300 Cdn each.

I will most likely be purchasing a traditional set of 2 -speakers-on-stands since at least half the time I am doing sound for someone else--small touring combos mostly--and that's what they expect.

Thanks everyone, keep the insights and model suggestions coming.
