20 K&M mic stands (12 tall, 8 short)

I got the speakers by Fedex Freight yesterday, two pallets dropshipped from Memphis, TN. They should have been here Friday (and were, but not out for delivery...) due to an error from QSC they were shipped a day late...Anyways, unpacked them, got them home, and fired them up, and WOW. I had already demoed them at Guitar Center a few weeks ago, and was thoroughly impressed, but this setup ROCKS. I had the tops set up at normal on the mains, the subs on an aux send, and was playing some prerecorded music as well as a live show I recorded Saturday night, and the sound was phenominal. Cranked it up to where my ears were hurting (not from bad quality either) and the limiter's still hadn't kicked in. My first gig that will break everything out will be on the 18th for a cancer benefit up the river. I will actually have two tops and two subs at a show this Saturday, but it's not a huge show that doesn't demand volume, so there won't be a lot to see/hear, but I'm going to give them a try. Anyways, here are some pictures I've taken of the system plus a video while listening to them today.
Excuse the mess, but here is how everying sits in my garage at the moment. Cases are coming in Thursday for most of this stuff, so it will clean up, plus I have a 7x14 trailer in the works.
Here's the video. Taken with my iPhone 5, so don't judge the poor quality of the video, but you get an idea...the speakers are put up to full volume at the chorus.
