Thanks for the reply Bill. I agree its hard to walk up and be handed a system with little to no time to tweek it or even give it a good listen. I like the subs for what they are. I feel its the High Cut filter that could be improved for those who use the built in crossover's in them.  It seems to be a staggered pole design of some sort. The response drops some. Then levels a little then drops steeper. Like a double 12 db filter cut to get a 24 db total cut but with the 2 points at different frequencies. If not set right this could leave to a lot of overlap in the 120hz/150hz range. This could be the boom? some hear but 1 octave up. I am using the built in crossover in my M32r desks mono out to roll that off at a steeper rate. If a person didn't know that and set the crossover at 150 hz it could be quite loud there. 

The subs really do have a high output. I found 2 of the yorkville EF500p tops to 1 sub is a pretty good match. If  a person had 4 subs then they would need a high output top/s to keep up. If they didn't turn the subs down I expect they would sound boomy with no mid/highs to keep up in the crossover area.
I do agree these are moving used at a great price right now. I expect the new LS801's to be reduced soon too as the new version comes to the market. I had thought about selling my two and going with the 21's but "wow" over 200lbs is a little much for a single owner/provider.

Kindest regards;

Douglas, as a solo operator, how on earth do you get those EF500P's up on stands?

They are crank up stands. Cranked down I can have the bottom of the EF500p at waist height to slide them on the T bar. T bar is made out of solid crank shaft metal and will support more than 3 times the weight of the speakers. I use flyware rated eye bolts screwed into the flyware on the speakers
I'll post a picture in a few days.

I wasn't concerned with the rigging really. Just wondering what kind of muscle bound freak you were to lift those cabinets up on a stand.

I'm guessing you are standing on the stage when you do this? Because even all the way down, the ST-132 is like 5.5 feet tall.

. With the Ef500p sitting on the ground its 30 inches to the middle of the flyware eye. I only have to have the bottoms roughly 3 feet off the ground to slide the first eye down the shaft. I don't think the EF's are too bad. I put them on tripods alone all the time. I have to say it is MUCH easier to put them on the ST-132's then on tripods. In small rooms though one is plenty so I put them on tripods. Don't remember the weight. 70lbs or so.
