    And guess what Mr Neen has just been asked to mend as a matter of urgency? And guess how much the amp module costs? Makes the 410 look positively good value!!!

    That's it, one system.

    Anything larger than 150 people I don't take on.

    I'm sure in the long term it's saved me lots of money!
    It's one way of coping with the problem. As to its fiscal efficiency, well I couldn't possibly comment. As to your sole system, you're fibbing. You forgot the esteemed Maui 5s.

    Compromises? No. Just don't expect a true " stick rig " to cope with every gig. The Evolve 50 and Db 1203 will do almost any gig, but they're not really stick rigs. Not even close. They're virtually subs and tops. When I bought ( was sold? ) the Maui 5s, I had no reason/intention to buy them. Having used them, I would never consider not owning a stick rig of some flavour. ( And I've said it before, the difference between the least and the greatest isn't vast. They're all good. ) They're just so perfect for small, intimate gigs, with limited space, and they're sooo damned sexy.

    Re your sub, see if Andy still has that Db 615. That should suit you nicely.

    I'm not sure a 615 would do much more than provide extra barracading like my old bin. I'm going to have a lend of a sub15h before too long & see if that will keep up. Failing that, it might be time to hunt down a 905as mk2 or 2. I'm not sure I want to commit myself that much.

    Maybe I'm approaching this wrong. I seem to remember having thoughts about keeping the hd12a for general gigs then for when I need more welly in the bottom end go with 10 tops with 12 or 15 bins. On the basis of enjoying the hd12a so much maybe a pair of Hd10...

    Mind you I'm completely out of spare budget now

    After plenty of pondering, and trying not to spend money I don't have, I've finally decided on what to go for.....

    This is mainly thanks to MattyDJ50, who I was sharing a venue with on Saturday.

    Matthew was running the Maui 28 G2, I was rather impressed with those stick, clear great sound, nice bass,loud enough, portable enough, look good, easy to setup.....

    I've almost enough funds to buy a pair of these to replace my trusty DXR15's (which I still love, and are mint).

    There is a place local to me selling these at £750 a side, which is the best I've seen so far.

    Just wondering in anyone knows of any other shop(s) worth trying, ideally who would take my DXR's off my hand in a deal?

    I think the Maui 28/Evolve 50 and the rest are just about the boundary between discreet rigs capable of doing over 75% of average gigs easily, and full on subs and tops. Although it's a six and two threes, on balance the mix'n'match aspect of my RCF/Db rig wins for me. Almost an identical price to the Mauis, and technically, mine's easier to carry as the subs have top handles. I can carry both at once. Maui made a huge error not putting a rear top handle on the 28s.

    Edward, I think you'll love the Mauis, I'll keep an ear to the ground for new homes for the Yamahas.

    There is only one venue where I'll currently have issues with the Maui (I think)

    The venue is a at a football stadium, and hence has long rectangular rooms. I'm usually in the middle speakers pointing across the room (towards the pitch), with the dance floor to the front, and tables are placed to my left and right.
    I've worked with up to 350 people in here using the DXR's.

    As you know, we usually play to the floor, which is not an issue, the issue I see is probably providing background music during meals. For this,I have my DXR's nice and high, and swing them to point towards the tables. Works a treat.

    I "guess", that when using the Maui's I might have to put a satellite speaker either side to fill in for the BGM (Which I can do if needed).

    But for 90%+ of my gigs I see these being fine. And for the small gigs I could use one, mind you, I like my setup to mirror

    Agree with all of that. You may yet find that the Mauis have a greater dispersal than you expect; and may cope on their own. Might. May.
