Because they sound like trash? 😂

The QSC 10.2's aren't bad. They're on-par with most of the other $700-$1k SOS boxes out there when used within their limits of course.
I really like the form factor of the QSC 10.2. The fit and finish is good. Handle placement is excellent. Weight is excellent. Built-in DSP with delay on those and other M.I. speakers can be quite helpful for small things like wedding gigs or corporate events where running individual drive lines is less convenient.

The OP doesn't state what is meant by "quality" other than "no cheap plastic".
Sound Quality? Build Quality? Reliability? Features?

I'd propose that plastic vs wood isn't nearly the most important consideration these days.

This thread - https://forums.prosoundweb.com/index.php/topic,175865.0.html, reminded me of something I wanted to bring up but I didn't want to derail.

In september of 2020, I purchased the Radial BT box so I can run the break music wireless from FOH. Nice and seamless, first song dialed in on the ipod - fade down band and fade up music. It is a great box as are all radial products and it works 100% of the time at all but one venue we play.
It's really weird, so I can have dozens and dozens of folks (each one with a phone in their pocket or purse presumably) between me and the box with no issues yet at this one place, I get drop out beyond about 20 -25 feet EVERY single show. Ironically this is an outdoor show and I don't see why this is happening. No other wifi issues at this venue and no problems with mics or iems either - just the BT box. I always place the box up about 4ft on stage.
If I raise the iPod way above my head, it might work OK ... however, this venue has a raised stage ( so the BT box is up even higher) so in fact I would think that would benefit me.  A lot of the other shows don't have the elevation, yet the iPod doesn't need to be raised up to get connection anywhere else.

Without measurement equipment and an operator capable of quantifying 2.4 GHz transmissions, all anyone can do is guess about invisible stuff.  But you can be sure that there is a source or multiple sources of interfering 2.4 GHz signals operating nearby.

Hardly but then again garbage in = garbage out.

Unpopular for some reason on this forum but safe choice:

QSC K10.2's with KS112's

Hello!

I currently use the JBL SRX 815p tops with 818sp subs and love the sound; however, I’m looking for something smaller for more intimate events. Currently, I just use the 815s without my subs but I would like to get a separate system with 10” tops and 12” subs.

Looking for super easy to carry, self-powered and NOT cheap plastic!

Thanks for your ideas.

Christopher

A few years back dB tech introduced the VIOx205 at infocomm. Art Nadelman and I listened to them. We both thought the same thing and I told myself that if I ever redid my system id get those puppies for the 'tiny' gigs and weddings and such.

They sounded fantastic (this is compared to DSL and RCF), were lightweight and I couldn't believe the low-end kick energy they had.

I'd heavily consider them or the 206 which has better dispersion IMO.

I dont think a 10 or 12 is that much of a difference to warrant a second smaller/lighter option IMO.

Yeah, not seeing them either...only thought would be under the staging or behind the screens, but seems unlikely.

Did you walk around the venue?
 maybe you were sitting in a null.

Looking at the diagram -   guitar, mic and mp3 player into a desk and out to a pair of speakers is a fairly standard solo performer setup.   Assuming you use decent wireless guitar and mic then I don't see an issue and you might want a back up mp3 player handy.

Going from your desk to the speakers without cables is an extra complication I wouldn't bother with, all you are saving is running a cable, when the main advantage of wireless gear imo is for performers.
The other issue is using battery powered speakers - I know buskers that use battery powered rolands that are surprisingly good that might work for you if you're doing small room and short sets, sounds like a regular active PA cab and an extension lead would be easier though.

The college athletes on scholarship are basically indentured servants.

That argument can be made-but they are playing a game that many play for fun/recreation and a fair number of them have scholarships-which if you look at real tuition costs (paid for with after tax dollars)  is not insignificant.

I doubt many do jobs similar to what the crew is doing "just for fun".
