Time to upgrade my bands PA system. Advice needed please.

Hi there. I think it’s time that my band looks into upgrading our current PA system. We are a loud 3 piece rock band (guitar/bass/and LOUD drummer), and typically play in small clubs and pubs. We currently use a Yamaha stagepas 600 which I’ve got to say is pretty good for our needs, however in certain smaller, odd shaped venues we get feedback issues and perhaps a lack of clarity and headroom. We only put 2 vocal mics through the system with nothing else mic’d up. So we need something fairly compact (similar size/weight to stagepas) but with a bit more volume/headroom and a hopefully a better sound. I’ve been looking at QSC k8.2 or 10.2 or maybe the Yamaha dxr10, with a small basic mixing desk (Mackie or Yamaha or similar). We play 40 to 45 gigs a year all of the country so reliability and portability are as important as the sound quality. Anybody got any experience running the speakers mentioned in a small, live, loud environment. Cheers and thanks in advance.
