Well your in small tile room and the sound waves are bouncing right back into your mics and your best line of defence is gonna be volume control to combat the feedback problems. Feedback units and EQs might give little GFB (gain before feedback) but volume control is your best tool and it's free.
I just gotta ask why so much PA in small tile room ?

I tried so many home theater speakers for karaoke and never liked how I sounded. Most come with 6 inch drivers and the more expensive ones with 8" woofers. I figured the best way is to go with PA speakers to get the best sound without spending a fortune. But i think I over did it. I usually set the main fader at -20dbu and it's freakin loud! Would be awesome if I had a bigger house!

... you didn't say what the mic you're using is. Perhaps a better mic with higher GBF? Use a hyper or super cardiod mic and educate those handling the mics to get it as close as possible to the audio source (i.e. their mouth) and not to cover the vents at the base of the windscreen that help with noise cancellation and feedback suppression. When you cover those vents you essentially turn a good mic into an omnidirectional good mic and a bad mic into a feedback nightmare. My $.02 anyway...

Wow. Then your volume is way too loud... or you're just not gonna get it to work in that room.
Or the compressor is sacraficing average level for peak level and the corrseponding reduction is GBF. Or, the DRPX is set up in a way that is contributing to the problem.

So you're just practicing your vocals for karaoke? Get a good set of headphones and plug them into the mixer... problem solved! (... and sell me your 635s for cheap. ;-)
