I've been talking to the dealer that I've been talking about the QSC KW system with. He's been talking to me about the dB DVX series of speakers, namely 4 D15's and 4 SUB 18D's that would outperform the KW's for a little more. Can anyone comment? The differences that I can tell between them are the KW's are three-way versus two-way and are cheaper, but the DVX's are cheaper, have a larger HF driver (2.5" coil with 1.4" exit vs. 1.75" driver on the KW), and the D15's have a 60x40* spread (versus 75x75 for the KW) which should allow better combining with multiple speakers...I know dB Technlogies is a sister company to RCF, and their speakers are supposed to be excellent. Thanks guys. (Sorry I keep posting topic after topic, just want to make sure I'm making the right choice)

The higher end DB stuff is fairly rare.. i would say that the more MI grade DB stuff, i've never been a fan of the sound, just find it fairly harsh and not particularly loud for the claimed watts.

While I can't speak about the DVX tops, I've got something very similar in their DVA T4 "mini" line array tops. 2 per side over RCF TT single 18 subs.
FWIW, They're definitely better than the QSC HPR153's I had when I first started my band.

Oh yeah, I know the T4's are a lot better then the KW's would be (that's why they are going to be my next stepup when the time comes). I think I'll at least demo the D15's and see if I can find somewhere with the KW's to compare them to..

My buddy has 8 of the dvx floor wedges with the 2x8" drivers IMO they are much much clear and loud then the 4 k12's I rent out, I know not exactly wht you are after but a quick comment for you.
