Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] lightweight speakers

Thanks for the input and that makes me think twice, however...

Well 2lbs each and they sounded great and Joe tours constantly with
them.   I carry very delicate things with me all the time and just
take special care with them.  Things like a head set mike with
extremely thin wires.  I just treat them like egg shells. Does anyone
have a good suggestion for a road rugged speaker that is that light.
I have what many would consider on paper crap for a speaker.  I set it
on the floor (another no no) and power it with a radio shack 35 watt
PA which has lasted 25 years and is also considered crap, but I can't
tell you how many times I have been at mid range venues like schools
and small theaters where they have spent lots of money on systems that
sound retched and been complimented on the sound quality of my system.
I did spend $400 on a great AKG and shure dual diversity wireless. At
big theaters where they do know the difference and tell me so, I play
through their expensive system.  I am often disappointed with how loud
they insist on setting levels, and then they miss cues or neglect to
power up my channel as  I start the show.  I do carry a little mixer
so I now can hit my cues, but am disappointed with it because of
little buzzes and hums that cause 20 minutes of fiddling with, with a
sound person 50% of the time.  I hope to find a light weight mixer
thats better than what I have.

I have 10" now and its heavy.
Does anyone have a good suggestion for a road rugged speakers that are
that light?  I mean in the 2 lb range each not 25 lbs.  I have that
