Perfection from QSC & Sweetwater!!!
Last year, I joined an All-acoustic 4-piece cover band(2vocals,2acoustic guitars, cajon/mondo snare, and my acoustic bass). The drummer, at that time, had two EV ETX35P 3-way mains for their PA. He decided to leave the group, and we were without speakers. Well, I researched what would maintain the quality, as well as volume, of our shows, without spending more money than we had to in the long run. I also was trying to remain more "modular" to help with ease of load in/out, instead of schlepping 100lb mains every time. So, with the specs that this series has, my band's lead vocalist bought these through his Sales Rep(I bought the KSub through mine-You ROCK!, Derek Senestraro!!!). The level of clarity of this system is UNREAL for our band! No it doesn't make you sound better, but the clarity makes you hear EVERYTHING! In turn, making everyone pay attention to themselves as well as each other, and we sound better and tighter. After gain staging, the speaker levels are ran about 8 o'clock!!! I'd love to play outside and run it closer to "wide open" or at least Unity gain level on the speakers. The ONLY thing I wish we could do is get the K12's and see if we could run the bass thru just the mains with the DEEP switched on (maybe no need for the KSub?), but I'm not complaining AT ALL!!! I also love how I can secure them in top of the KSub and roll all that inside in one shot. Sure the K10's may NOT have the same freq responses as the 3-way EV's we used to use, but we have a VERY clean, hi-fi sounding PA! Plus, I can fit the whole band PA in the back of my Nissan Juke!!!
