I'm looking to replace a Bose L1 system (too fragile) with a small, portable, virtually indestructible, PA that is good enough quality to cover acoustic music, and also to cover just vocals in a pub gig situation. I'm also looking for small, ideally active, monitor speakers. I'm looking for the second-best-of-the-best. I've been looking at LD systems active monitors which appear to be some kind of rebranded internal-crossovered active monitor retailing at $250 approx, and at d&b M4s which are approx $2500 per unit. Somewhere in the middle maybe? At present I have a Peavey active monitor with a slave that goes off this system, and they are great for the purpose (hire to people who might break them), and eminently portable, maybe I should just go with more of those? But as far as the first question goes, I'm looking at Fender Passports, Peavey etc and thinking there must be a brand I just am not aware of a bit above that level. My main rigs are Bose 802/302 systems, but they are hella expensive and although the 802s on their own are excellent they require a bit more thought in setting up, not to mention a very losable control box, and the bass bins weigh a ton - basically I'm not really happy sending out those systems without an engineer. I remember a band who used to hire a permanent room from me had what seemed to be quite a nice system with a single sub with the amp built into that, and extremely small satellite tops, but whether that would do a 200-person pub at quality I don't know, also they left years ago and I have no idea what it was. Any ideas?
