Back in the day, those 802's where pretty damn good.
Yah, I thought we had the best sounding rig in the area. We used a pair of 4 ohm CV FH subs under them with a pair of CS800's lit up red . Only thing we had to do to the 802's was to go to the next size up fuses. We had the processor for them but sometimes ran them flat with a pair of Peavey piezo arrays on top when we needed a little more output.

There's no comparison with PRX and VRX, but I've heard even old-ass Eon's sound as good as Mackie SRM400's.
Certainly, depending on the environment and operator. I've heard Clair, D&B & Meyers sound like A** too with the wrong captain at the helm ;-). In essence, I'm agreeing with you in that The acoustics & talent (that includes a talented operator) will make a bigger difference than the rig. Sorry, I've just mixed on these speakers for so many shows that I yearn for better quality. Admittedly, I'm probably biased againsed them just for that reason.
Back to Carvin. IMHO Some of their top end gear is not too bad (not killer but useable) but unless you get a steal of a deal on a used pair they can probably be bested by many other products. I can't speak for their powered speakers. This is just an observation in general.
