Has anyone used KB amps in this manner with an unpowered mixer? My band has been using a pair of powered JBL EONs for a while now, and they're about the cheesiest pieces of crap I've ever seen. Constantly breaking and the buzz they put out is nerve fraying. Not to mention they're not angular to rest on the floor properly. I've had my eye on the KB amps for this function for some time now. Seems to me they'd work well since they're practically self contained PAs. Please advise.

I use harbinger 12" powered PA cabs as monitors. 150 watts and self contained. They sound great and are small and light.

My mains are carvin 15s, 400 watt powered cabs. If you want a little more beef in the monitors I recommend them highly. In 5 years of constant gigging, dropping them, rolling one down a hilly driveway, never a glitch. They also make these with 12" and 10".
