I used to have pair of DXR15's (probably why i brain farted) and they were nice speakers - just didn't use them enough as I always seem to use subs so I sold them on - but they sounded great...

$400 for an HPR112 in working condition is a good deal.

+1.  All my QSC HPR boxes are nearly 10 years old but in 10/10 functional and 7/10 or better cosmetic condition.  I wouldn't think of letting them go for any less than that.  They've never skipped a beat and are one of the best business investments I've made thus far. 

On topic, glad to hear you are finally getting a replacement speaker Debbie!

I recently worked with an act that used DXR15 as monitors for the bass player.  As loud as his SVT was already I'm not sure why, but he "needs them."  He found the power alley and mostly stayed there.  There was no bass in the PA mix (except for a bit of subwoofer feed) in a 700 capacity room.  The DXR15 impressed me.

I've been using my DXR15s for over 5 years now - mostly DJ applications (weddings etc.) but some live sound as well. They sound great out of the box and they get seriously loud (considering their price)- it take quite a bit of signal before getting the limit light to blink. I've only seem them blink a few times so far to be honest. Great for smaller gigs where you don't want (or need to) bring subs. Finish on the DXR cabs is very fragile however, so covers are a must IMO. Mixer section is super flexible too.

I built my business in the beginning on HPR122s & 181s. My 10 HPR122s have been bullet proof. They're about to get a new coat of paint and new diaphragms after 10 years of use. I had one of the 181s with a blown speaker (rental) and that's it. Best ROI in my inventory, without question. I've followed this thread with interest as I've read such glowing reviews on the DSR stuff. Debbie's saga is truly a shame and would certainly cause me reservations about buying the DSRs. I get that a local service center can wreak havoc in a situation like this, but the poor response from the manufacturer does not sit well at all. I hope Debbie's issues are finally resolved.

I am surprised that not one single person from Yamaha has  addressed this thread - either on the forum itself or with a message  to me. Doesn't anyone at Yamaha care about the damage to their reputation at all? I have seen other company representives (namely Uli Behringer himself) jump in on forum threads to try to quell the bleeding but in 233 posts not one single comment. This surprises me.

I am not surprised. Many companies have a policy to not participate in these sort of forums. I believe Yamaha Commercial is one of them.

Yeah, but this forum doesn't suck.  What's the opposite of suck? ::)

Mmmm... someone forgot to tell the service center that you were getting a replacement.

I think it's time, seems to me the main issue here is this:
