My thought is that since they're both speaker on stick systems, most customers won't differentiate between the two. I really think the average person hear with their eyes. I have SM80's and I would pay more for them. Actually, I did. But I don't think the average person would.

I think you could charge more for the fly package but I don't see the average customer paying extra for the SM80's. They'll probably just go with a lower quote with someone that has DSR112's.
Yeah, I hear you. The main reason for purchasing the SM80 system was to replace my 6 QSC KLA12 speakers and maintain equal quality and volume (which they have no problem doing). The KLA rig looked more impressive, but the SM80/TH118 rig is a 1-man setup that doesnít require trues.

I guess this goes back to getting hired for the job, not the gear. If the client is happy with the end result, thatís what matters, and if I can differentiate the packages with truss and extra sub(s), that may help too.

Pacifier/placebo speaker cabinets... 

Decades ago (in my van load of PA days) I lost gigs because my rig was too efficient/physically small for "rock and roll."  I eventually bought some blown up boxes at a pawn shop to stack around the real PA to make it look "rock enough".

Ha! I love it. I have a couple of friends who play in a classic rock cover band. They are using Fractal Axe FX guitar processors, but they still bring 2 full stacks of dummy cabs to make it look bigger :)
