It was more that I was trying to enjoy actually taking a couple days off for the holiday;)
Whether the Truesonics active 12 and the Yamaha 102c might be considered a decent system for the situation I described?
One poster wrote earlier that he thought getting an all-in-one system like the Peavey Escort or Yamaha Stagepas would be a better systme than an under-$1000 compnent system.
Would I consider it 'decent'? Probably not, sorry. But could it be considered usable? It might be. Personally I find the EQ on the Yamaha boards to be less than ideal(This applies to most any 3 band EQ in my experience until you get into much more costly EQs), but in this case I would also bet they don't get used much either. I haven't used the TrueSonics to tell you for certain one way or the other which would be better between them and the StagePas. The reviews on these forums would indicate they would be, but I always take any recommendation with a grain of salt until I can hear them. Sadly I suspect hearing those will be difficult for you to say the least, though you could probably demo the StagePAS at a local store without to much difficulty.
The thing the StagePAS does have going for it though is ease of breakdown and setup, which due to its design is slightly less confusing than piecing a system together. Not a whole lot, mind you, just slightly. And honestly with nothing in the system I would consider really 'decent' it means that to me there is less benefit going with a passive mixer vs a powered mixer, as was discussed earlier in the thread, primarily because at some point you are most likely going to be replacing the majority of the system, and the speakers anyways make up the majority of the cost. So as a result, even if the TrueSonics provide a slightly better sound(And it sounds like that is at least true if not more than slightly better) I might still stick with the StagePAS as a recommendation given the lack of skilled operators and need for someone unskilled to be able to set it up personally.
So if you can get a demo of those Alto speakers(Sorry I don't know any dealers that deal with them to recommend you contact, and generally for something that cheap you need to find someone near you and go to them) and compare them to the StagePAS, I would do it. Beyond that as James said, it is difficult for anyone to be able to give a straight answer.
