Here's the last 2 pics ...
Description: This mixer has exceptional clarity, and is so convenient where it sits. at my right hand, you'll see the 2 remotes for the lights - velcro'd to the Korg to stay put.
KB goes into the iRig mixer, as well as my wireless mic and the iPad. All three get sent to the Bose, and I have hands on control without ever turning my head away from the audience.
I think this just MAY be the best setup, I've ever had.
The PA-AS gives me loud, clear, in my face monitoring - the Bose gives me excellent, room-filling, non abrasive sound reinforcement, and the ipad is the best jukebox in town.
For really small jobs, I leave the Bose in the trunk, and the sound bar is all the amplification I need. The new mic boom mod I made keeps a teeny footprint, and all the wires and mixer fit into a laptop bag
that sits in the top "V" of the X stand, out of sight, under the Korg. I use a stretchy kb cover in front of the stand ... attaches to all 4 points on the X stand - keeps a neat look, and hides the wires.
For the unusual case when I need a larger setup - All I need to do is bring my 2 powered QSC K8s and daisy chain them from the Bose! Nothing changes except the room coverage!
Every instrument, every voice, every sound in nature ... these are are all my private tutors ... 24/7 for free, and all I have to do is listen.
