Hi Ryan: My live performance keyboard setup includes the Tyros2 with one, or a COMBINATION OF, the following PA setups:

1) TRS-MS02 Subwoofer + Bose 161's
2) Motion Sound KP100S
3) Electro Voice SxA100's

Scott, although I have used all the sound systems you listed without personal happiness for my needs & had to briskly sell them ....but I hope you are enjoying them......& yes using one speaker phase cancellation mostly on theT2 Live Grand still exists....I have to tweak & use a few hookup "Y" plug L/R workarounds to make it sound decent for now but that's what pros do .
Seriously, my next intervention will be with the Roland E-80 when it comes out, its the only new offering that stirs my juices right now... ...we'll see at that time what it sounds & navigates like to qualify for a serious contender for "MY" needs!,

l8tr,
I'm off to my first gig of the day!

My mix/match PA setups offers me the FLEXIBILITY of not having to haul around a 50 lb x 2 PA system for even the smallest jobs. I reserve the big guns for the larger venues, saving valuable transport time & effort.

On the other hand Donny, with 'your' back to back 2-3+ gig a day schedule , I'm sure you must be getting really buffed now, and saving money to boot, not having to fork out bucks on a gym membership.

Scott please stop showing off your frailty to the masses its embarrassing your starting to sound like your parrot .....
the weight is no issue with me .....
I use what sounds good to my ears....the 3pc Bose 161 w/ T2 sub is OK but not enough power period for me.......Motion 100 is the WORST KB amp I ever used ....Ev's sound nice but not enough Balls..(can I say that? )...just A/B them with the Mackie SRM 450's
if you enjoy them ..that's fine too. I'm glad its NOT me.
As for my gigs ....
Again Scott, sorry I dont discuss financial business on the web...
nuff said....

carry on

Ryan,

This summer I have been quite busy playing out.. much more often than I am accustomed to, and I'm pretty happy doing it. In most cases I still use my PA80 in combination with my laptop and a host of softsynths for lead voices. I like the Korg styles, along with about 60 converted Yamaha styles that sound good on the PA80, but I don't care for many of the lead voices. The PA80 does do decent organ, sax and synth based sounds though. The softsynth sounds I have are incredible, and I preload up about 30 of the best inside Xlutop chainer, so they work as presets for me.

Sometimes, as space permits, I also bring along my Motif ES. It has more than enough good lead voices on it, so that I can pay less attention to the laptop when performing.

When I don't need to rely so much on style play, I'll either bring the Motif ES alone, or the MZ2000 instead. The MZ's styles are perhaps it's weak point, but some, including a few converted ones, are good enough, and I like most of the lead voices better than those on the PA80.

I use a Behringer UB1204fx mixer, and for a PA I play through a modiifed Logitech z2300 system.. modified in that the two satellites were replaced by a pair of 10 inch Kustom speakers. Usually it's plenty loud enough, and it sounds pretty decent to boot. For bigger jobs, I am looking for a pair of powered speakers or KB amps to replace my Peavey PA system, which is ancient at this point.
