Alto Truesonic TS110A (monitor) and TS112A (main)
Generic mic splitter
TC Helicon Harmony G-XT
It works very well for our acoustic duo. Plenty of volume for restaurants and wineries. I'd like to add a small mixer to better facilitate level adjustments from my position and not have to move.
I ended up selling the TS112A. The 10" puts out plenty of volume for us. I paid $270, and sold for $200 after just a couple months of use. That's fine with me. Still considering whether or not to get a higher end unit, like a QSC K10 or a PRX612M.

Currently, I use...
Two powered Mackie TH15's for mains
Two powered Mackie TH12's and one powered JBL Eon for monitors
One Alesis MultiMix 8 mixer...though I have a couple of Behringers I use for recording that are available for larger gigs, if needed.
Most of my gigs are small trio/quartet gigs, and I do some solo/duo acoustic gigs as well. If I need anything more than this, I rent a sound guy.

If I play a larger place they will have a PA. When I go out and play a small place I keep it simple because I don't like to move a lot of stuff.
I have a pair of Mackie powered speakers and a CFX12 mixer. The mixer is small and it has reverb built in so that's convienient. Maybe at some point I'll get monitors but when I play these types of places I generally play alone or with a percussion player, so I don't really see the advantage of having them as it's not hard to hear.
I played a record store a couple weeks ago because they're selling my record and I used one of the Mackie speakers with the board and it was more then enough.
I used to have a bigger system with unpowered Yamaha speakers and a power amp but the powered speakers are so light that these days for smaller systems it's the way to go.

When I occasionally play duo, we use the following gear:
FOH: 2 x Yamaha DSR 112, 1 x dB Opera Sub 12 inch
Monitors: 2 x QSC K10
Mixer: A&H Zed 14FX
Mics: Shure Beta 58 & Sennheiser e935
Works beautifully for what we do, which is mostly private parties with a listening set to begin, and dancing later on.
