I love my logtech z2200 for small rooms and my powered Crates for clubs. Had the Mackie 808s, too heavy.

Regards,

Jim

A pair of powered monitors (either Mackie, EV or JBL).

About 3 feet behind me
Tilted and angled towards me
Used the keyboard's mixer and harmonizer

Turned out great.

Personally, I think the JBL's can't compete with the EV's. You've got to hear them side-by side and you will HEAR the difference. The Mackie's are very similar to the EV; a little less for a little less. I'm sorry, but I can't get into the rawer sound of the JBL. Good luck.

Though not cheap (street price: $1200+ each) I've auditioned & compared them with all the above competition, and the Ev SxA360's remain my TOP PICK for BEST sound (SMOOTH frequency response from TOP to BOTTOM) & very ergonomically weight balanced (36 lbs) for ease of transport. Though I'm still content with my SxA100's , I plan to eventually upgrade to the SxA360's when my budget permits.

The EV 360 and Mackie 450 are excellent choices..

Let me add another that out performs them..
Yorkville NX55p..

Power wise they are all similar with high spl ratings...The difference shows on the full range of the frequency response..

EV 360..goes down to 65hz

Makie 450..goes down to 55hz.

Yorkville NX55..goes down to 45 hz..[now that is getting down to sub woofer bottom]

All 3 have smooth range, but I want to be smooth to where the music is felt..

Donnie even the Yorkville NX520p's I use only go down to 60hz...Without our sub woofer..it seems so empty[comparable]..Of course if you are use to using the great units mentioned without a sub woofer..you have nothing to compare to...

These are all great speakers mentioned here.

But, judging by what you were using and the type of gigs you do, I'd think the 10" JBL speakers would be plenty and be smaller and lighter.
