Some of the stuff in the pictures isn't listed, but it is all part of the rig.

I have an t.c. electronic M-One XL and a Crest HP8-48 on order.

I think the assymetrical horns of the QRX153 are something all boxes should have.  I've never heard this box.  Can you offer a comparison to say the KF695z or a common JBL box?

My gear list is on http://www.padrick.net/TP_Audio.htm (scroll down a bit).

Here's what I play with at work. (Not my stuff but I use it 4 days a week usually)

Mackie 32x8 (about to be replaced)
dbx 231 on mains
driverack PA
Quadraverb plus
Virtualizer Pro
Some cheap Digitech (I only use it for a drum verb)
1 Autocom (not sure of the exact model #)
2 composers
1 multigate pro (think it's the xr4400)
2 QSC USA 900
2 QSC ex2500
2 QSC mx3000a
8 Eminence kilomax 18's
8 JBL 12's
4 JBL horns

28 channel Horizon snake with 4 returns. (all xlr, no trs plugs/jacks) FOH split has all 28 + returns and mon split has 1-24.

Yamaha (mx200???)
2 rane 3 way sereo/ 4 way mono crossovers for wedges
4 cheap dod 31 bands
5 QSC USA 900
1 QSC mx1500a
3 wedges with various single 15's and JBL highs
1 drum box with 2 15's (well one got shredded somehow this weekend, I was off the clock running in another room in the club) and I think a Peavy horn.

1 Beta52
1 SM81
6 57's
4 58's
Bunch of DI's

About the only thing I suggested that this place has actually bought was the driverack. (and I wanted a 260) They just don't get it when I try to explain to them how much of a difference better stuff would make in the long run as far as durability and long term costs. I can't even begin to count how many times I've tried to relate it to buying a $400 chevette and driving it to work and back for a year or two and then it breaks and you end up buying another beater. I bring up the fact that they don't have to buy a Rolls or anything like that but maybe something like a used caddy would be nice.

I have not worked with the EAW KF695z, but I do have an EAW FR183, and the 2 FR 153's mentioned on my site.  I have also listened to the EAW LA325 on numerous occasions(as in heard bands that I have run on an LA system).

 Given my background I will say this, the box is impressive!  My friend bought a pair and I helped him dial them in, and after working with them I had to have a pair. My friend was ordering another pair, and I jumped in on that order and thus we have 6 of them.  The box is very natural.  I find that I rarely touch the house EQ outside or in non reverberant rooms with this box.  Another example would be the upper range of Bass guitar.  Usually with my other boxes, I am fiddiling with the channel EQ a lot trying to get the bass guitars high notes to sound right.  With these cabinets I set the gain, bring the fader up, reach for the channel EQ, and then stop, listen, and call for the next instrutment without touching the channel EQ.

We have run these boxes 3 per side with a 6 person accapella group and the smoothness and lack of phasing problems was very impressive.  The narrower horn pattern (75 degrees I believe)means that you need pay more attention to where you point the box than when using a 90 degree box, but as I mentioned it arrays much better.  EV's "Ring Mode Decoupling" claims to clean up the mids and whatever they did, it works (I have a pair of EV 1502 15" 2 way boxes I used for years, and they are not close to the clarity of the QRX-153s).

The asymmetrical horns are nice as I can walk up to the box and with my arm extended and my finger touching the grill I am in the high frequency dispersion pattern (this is while it is on top of a 4' tall double scoop and I am 5'6" tall).

All in all, it probably isn't as good as an EAW 650, but it sounds really nice, and is roughly half the cost and probably half the weight of a 650, plus it is tall enough that you don't have to fly it or stick it on a pole to get the highs over the crowd.
