Been using the EM526 yorkville for almost a year 2x6" + 1" tiny little thing makes an excellent little wedge, small coverage though

Looking at retiring. Local PA market has shrank to 2 guys with guitars and bose l1 compacts or expecting full line array and 16 movers on stage for $300... no middle left going back to event DJ stuff, half the work for twice the pay.

I have powered versions of the EV ELX112 that I absolutely love,they're loud and clear.  Passive version SHOULD sound just as nice.  If you want a good speaker that's inexpensive, the Carvin PM153 makes a very nice sounding monitor and as a 3 way, it's very good for vocals.

The JBL SRX712M is pretty much the go to in the way of rider friendly passive monitors. It's getting quite old at this point however, and while they still sound great I'm not sure if I would invest in them.

Anyway why are you wanting to go from a power monitor to a passive system. Unless you want 2 monitors on the same mix you tend to be wasting some of the power amp power (as well as money). The trend for monitor even at touring level is starting to go toward powered monitors with everyone wanting discrete monitor mixes anymore.

I have not used them, but I assume the STX812 will at least not be frowned upon in riders that would accept SRX712.

If you don't have the budget for these: http://forums.prosoundweb.com/index.php?topic=150191.0 , then I'd suggest looking at the EV TX1122FM, Tannoy VX12HP.

What's your budget? For small coin, can't go wrong with Yamaha SM12V.

IMO That would be a downgrade from the QSC K12s.
