Hmm...in the past few weeks I have heard QSC K and KW series used outside and do the QSC 'choking' midrange thing...and get worse as time went on. They are my least favorite.
Were you actually mixing yourself or just heard them? There's a difference.
I've had fantastic results using K12s and KSubs indoors at levels with good headroom. I've heard another guy push KW152s as far as they would go (limiter lights on all the time) outdoors - not so great, but still very, very passable.
I've had to run SRM450s hard into the limiters once, absolutely horrible experience. Not even remotely close to the KWs. Heck, even Meyer cabs start to suffer when they start limiting. Maybe DSR or PRX cabs are slightly better in some regards, but I haven't used them - And I wouldn't want to get anywhere near their limiters, just like with any other box.

Had a show this evening and had (2) "new" Turbosound M10's setup for monitors. Had one monitor linked the other. The primary monitor hooked directly to the snake seeemed to be attenuated -20db when the secondary was linked. I switched monitors primary and secondary duties and had the same outcome. It lowered the volume on the primary monitor connected to the snake.  Very confused am I missing something?  Put a Y adapter and as expected lost a good bit of volume but it was equal.

That Phonak unit is an IFB for talking heads. Not what the OP is looking for I don't think. The stated frequency response is 200-4.5K. Telephone much?

A self contained IEM system for music does not exist yet. Bluetooth just isn't the answer (at least not yet), and honestly I don't see anybody scrambling to make this exist. The market just isn't there....
Aah, yes. Crappy audio, for sure.

Anyway, my next suggestion isn't pro-level RF tech, but the audio should be more than adequate, and it's certainly inexpensive enough to gamble on:

https://en-us.sennheiser.com/audio-headphones-stereo-wireless-120-ii

They operate in 926-928 Mhz and only have 3 channels to choose from.

Sennheiser also has a few other RF models, including more expensive options, and most are available on Amazon. All will most likely have consumer type RCA and/or TRS audio inputs.

Yamaha all the way... EONs are horrible sounding boxes IMO. I'd also suggest 12" mains with 18" subs.

Wow... after the initial crass responses (actually, well deserved) about the idea of the "best cheap dj/band speakers" I applaud (pun intended ) and agree with the rest of the responses. 

My advice (FWIW) is:  Spend about $700-$1000 for ONE powered 12" top and about double that for ONE , I repeat ONE, powered sub.  There ain't no way around it.  Run mono (near a corner, or near the center of a wall - it doesn't matter because it will fit either), with your *Insert Music Source Here* next to it. 

Learn what it does, then decide if you actually need (and can cost-justify) a "mirror" set (or maybe, stereo).  Then, buy another matching 12" top.  Your audience WILL listen with their eyes, unfortunately, or/and you may need wider coverage. 

The last thing to purchase, if you need it, would be a 2nd matching sub.

In between the two is the DXR series, which to me sounds more appropriate from your description.
These boxes sound great, loud and full.

I've never heard of it.  All the sites seem to be Australian or Asian.  Does it seem to work well?  Do you have a known good sub amp, like Powersoft, you can borrow for comparison?

All of the people I've asked hadn't heard of it either. It works quite well currently but I don't have a great reference to put it against. Good idea about bench marking it against a known quality amp.

There is no "brand." It's a cheap (presumably) Chinese-built knockoff of another brand. There will be no warranty/factory support. If you are able to find out its specifications, they may or may not be accurate. It may or may not survive a show.

... My question would be why were the SWA1801s converted to passive.

-Ray

I bought them off a guy who was upgrading his system. He said that the amps blew in them and it was going to be too expensive to repair them so he chose to convert them to passive and use that amp that he had lying around. My plan was to upgrade to a better amp when something good came along online so I'm not too fussed that it is a no name brand.
