GUEST,Orson Trap PA speakers (11) PA speakers 30 Apr 12

Has anybody used a pair of Wharfedale Titan 8" speakers for a folk gig?
I used to use a pair of EV's S200 which were fine for most events.
However, one night my power amp was playing up and because the stage area was so small (not enough room for monitors) I used the 'mono out' on the desk and did the gig using for monitors for FOH speakers.
Nobody noticed the difference (other than no monitors). So what you might be saying...the monitors were a pair of Torque 8" 65 watt output! I have been to gigs in quite small halls where there was more than enough gear for 'Live Aid' and sometimes the amount of PA used was minimal in larger halls, and the sound has been fine. Lets face it, folky audiences at gigs tend to be listening audiences, if the PA is loud, people end up shouting to each other instead of the usual quiet whisper. So, has anybody any experience of the Titan 8's?
The guy in the PA shop insists they won't do, however, he plays in a rockband with 18" subs and 15" mid/tops. I get the impression they still use these regardless of the size of the room.
