If the band sounds great, it's because the band IS great, if the band sound like crap, it's the soundman's fault.

QSC EX-4000 (4) on mains
QSC MX-1500 (4) on 2 x 4 mix bi-amp wedge racks
Peavey CS-200X (4) on 2 x 4 mix bi-amp wedge racks
QSC MX-1500 (3) for various throw and go uses.

Yup, it's all heavy.
 Yup, it's all PAID FOR, 100 times over....
And they just keep on ticking, with yearly cleaning.

Wedding/Corporate System:
Crown MA 1202 and 2402 for EV Deltamax's
Crown MA 5002 for Subs (either Adamson B-218 or S-218)
2 Powersoft M50Q-DSP+Eth for Monitors (love these things)

24-box Adamson MH-225 System:
4 Audiopro AP-1200 (hi's, mid's)
8 Audiopro AP-3400 (lows, subs)

Not really a fan of powered boxes. Give me a 3 or 4-way system that I can measure and tweak.

24-box Adamson MH-225 System:


Jeez, I loved that system.
Drove a 24 x MH225 and 24 X B218 rig for many years.
The BSS FDS(whatever number) with the custom cards was the fail point of the rig. It was rare we were stereo. One of those damn things always seemed to be "broken"

Great memories, spectacular sounding shows.
On track, That rig was powered with QSC EX-4000, nad EX-2500. LOTS of them !

I actually run iNukes for quite a lot of my system. I do make sure there's a backup amp at each gig, though.

Highs - two channels of an NU4-6000 (other two channels can run a pair of wedges, or bridged to run a couple of subs)
Mids - NU6000
Subs - Crown MA12000i (except for small events with no wedge monitors - see above)

Misc - couple of NU3000DSP, couple of NU6000DSP, Crown MA5002VZ.

The Behringer amps have worked well for me. My biggest gripe is they sound awful if you hit clipping. Some kind of external limiting is mandatory.
Apart from that, they're fairly clean and put out a lot of power in a light package.

I keep thinking of taking the leap up to a Powersoft X4 for the mid-highs and keeping the Crown for subs, but that's a serious chunk of cash for a one-man operation like me.
