Ok, so Iím at the show now got 4 QSC kw181ís with my wís. These things are walking all over my subs! Iíve got the 4 qscís across the front of the stage and it really doesnít matter that my subs are even here. Since people on the forum have said they like the JTR stuff better, I would love to hear them but apparently no one has any in Atlanta. I can say I am impressed by these kwís. It also helps that thereís more here in town should I need to rent them.

Chris Grimshaw:
Technology certainly has moved on.
I'd say the KW181 is getting a little long in the tooth these days, too - I have 15"s that can put out 6dB more at 40Hz.

That said, KW181s are quite useful in that you'll always have the option to rent some more.

Yes, Iím not set on buying the kwís yet. Just noted that they play really nice with my tops and thereís more local should I need to rent. However I am still open to wanting to listen/demo other subs. However it seems that by lack of response thereís either no one willing to demo speakers in my area, or no one has anything different than what Iíve already listened to! Obviously the big companies in town all have matched rigs, ie subs that match their line array. Itís a little more difficult to find the lounge level guys, many Iím sure arenít on here!

JTR Speakers has a somewhat active Facebook page, so you could try posting on there to see if there are any JTR Pro owners in the Atlanta area.  If you follow JTR on FB for a while you'll learn that their main focus is the serious home theater enthusiast.  Another option is to get out there and network; go to live shows and introduce yourself during set breaks to the sound crew.  The best time to talk to me is after soundcheck, but before the first set. :)  Mind you, I am nowhere near Atlanta, GA.
