QSC vs HK Actives
I am about to chuck several grand at a PA rig and have got the choice down to between QSC and HK.
The QSC would consist of 2 x K12.2 and 2 x KS212C
Whilst the HK would be their Big Venue Pack which consists of 2 x L5115A & 4 x L SUB2000A
I am struggling to see much difference in the two it's all nip and tuck on the specs, SPL etc. Out and out wattage is well in the QSC's favour but as I have been told so very often that's not the real measure....and as we know some manufacturers have been known to be a little 'optimistic' in wattage figures. Also, has anyone got anything to report on the reliability stakes and just as, if not more important, how they react with warranty or repairs?
The PA will mainly be used in a 250 capacity room but will also be used in a 450 capacity room and very, very occasionally for a small outdoor gig for about 300 to 400 persons.
Any thoughts at all on this would be gratefully received...oh the desk is an X32
I have to admit that barring anything I have missed it might just come down to the price since the QSC is about £1000 cheaper than the HK.

So my recommendation would also be for the QSC rig, and I also use an X32 (Compact with a Rack for stagebox).

Give me either QSC rig over the HK any day of the week. I'm yet to hear the K.2 stuff, but presuming it is actually an improvement on the original K series, then it's gonna be top top gear.
Every time I've stepped up to an HK rig, I've found I've needed to work so much harder to get the rig doing what I want it to, than compared with the QSC. I know where I'd be putting my money if I was buying again.
