I had a QSC K8 that I played my HD500 through and it sounded awesome on its own, but when playing in the mix of a full band it struggled very hard to cut through. Plenty of volume but never found good way/tone to be heard over bass, drums, and keys. Anyway I got rid of that speaker and actually only play my HD in studio direct mode going straight in for recording purposes. I have given up playing it live....sadly.

Did you get the K8 up on some sort of speaker stand? It looks like it's rated for enough power but it's a little small, I would think a 10 or 12 might be more appropriate for a louder rock combination. But I've never used the QSC stuff so I don't know that particular brand. I just wonder because positioning can make a huge difference.

Strange; my experience has been very different (much better) with the K8. I've used it many times as my sole amplification (even when not going through the PA) and it has always been more than enough to cut through drums, bass, another guitar, and keys. I wonder if it has to do with the exact settings of the patches you were using, or maybe the height issue (I raise mine up off the ground).
