    Yes, 18" subs and 2 way cabinets with a horn and a 15" driver are fairly common. I like the convenience and simplicity of active speakers. As far as what is being used in electronic music for live shows, I can't imagine it's all that dissimilar to other PA systems, although that's not really my genre, so I could be way off base on that.

      I was curious if anyone actually paired a 10" speakers with a 15" or 18" subwoofer. I'm assuming a pair of 15" speakers would have subwoofer type frequency and perhaps may be competing with a subwoofer's frequency. Maybe a 12" pair of speakers and an 18" subwoofer sound better? Or how about a pair of 10" speakers with a 15" subwoofer?
