excellent suggestion from Bob MondokI am absolutely delighted with Bob Mondoks suggestion thatI go with a passive Soundcraft mixer and4 powered JBL EONS. The music community totally loves it too as the system has been used by the locals more than me!!

Absolute best weight-to-performance ratio for the buckAfter a year of comparing dozens of PA speakers, both active and passive, it came down to the JBL EON 315s for me. The Mackie SRM450v2 was a close competitor but, given the EONs better price, better low end response, lighter weight, and better brand support - I went with the EONs. The SRM450s have known overheating problems and I wasnt about to deal with that. Also, given the 15" woofer of the EON compared to the 12" of the Mackie I got better low end response. For the time I have owned them I have used them heavily and they havent slipped up one bit. The craftsmanship of these is really impressive when you start to look at the details. Its no suprise that JBL invented the Active speaker and the 3rd generation EON is no dissapointment. It is the industry standard at this price point for a reason. Sure you can get better but not for a few hundered more.
Negatives: A bit harsh sounding at higher SPLs, limits pretty easily when in boost mode, design is love it or hate it (I happen to love it).
Positives: Extremely light weight, great bass response at lower SPLs, great build quality. That awesome JBL resale value.
