heh heh. so Greg...uh...which was the bigger venue (I'm trying to get a feel for these...I've been drooling too!). I was going to nix the subs and just go with L3T's and L3M's for floor monitoring whilst still going with a STEREO monitor out to stereo headphone amps for in-ears.
Inquiring minds want to know.

I think it depends on whether you will using bass-heavy instruments in your setup (e.g., bass guitar or kick drum). If not I think you will get away without the L3s units. But if you want a bass guitar or kick drum to really come through I think you will benefit from the L3s.

The bigger venue was Swiftwater Cellars. Big open room, soaring ceilings, 2 levels, etc. etc.
I actually used the system last night at Jokers and the Jokers staff/management couldn't believe the sound. (of course I think the awesome band had something to do with it! )
The house speaker system has 2 x 18" subs on each side, 2 x 15" mids on each side and 2 x 1.75" horns on each side. All passvie with a tone of amps in the side room off the stage to run and a snake that goes all the way to the back for the mixing board.
I brought in the L3Ts, the L3Ss and supplemented the subs with my QSC KW118s since it is a youngter crowd that likes that club thump. The Line 6 system delivered in a huge way and our sound guy was in the audience with an iPad all night. We set up and tore down in under 30 minutes...saved the settings for the next time we play there. This is making performing music VERY FUN again since I don't have to worry about mixing and just performing.
I am not sure if you will need the subs for the style of music you are doing but I would certainly be willing to let you try one of mine my friend.

awesome! Jokers is truly a cool place. Jealous!! A LOT has to happen for me to start performing live again...but IF it happens, I'd say I have a definite path forward. I WAS going to just go find some used JBL 15" Eons and go through those (have used a pair before and they're plenty "good enough" for what we're doing)...however, your recent raves about using the M20d with Line6 speakers has me thinking I just may have to build my "dream system" too.
I'm ALSO looking at making setup/teardown an UNDER-30 minutes endeavor (currently...with all my "stuff" it's at LEAST 1.5 hours for all the stuff we want to do).
Sounds like you have all the local real-time experience and that is VERY valuable to the other bands in the area (side note to readers: Mr. Greg and I are in two different bands in the same city...and we have a mutual-admiration-society going...heh heh). I think your comment "music is VERY FUN again" is well taken. Sometimes I'm so danged exhausted after the gig simply from the MENTAL exercises I had to go through...sheesh! If I get the M20d I'm actually looking forward to the sheer awsomeness of VERY cool channel strips for each mic/instrument. Sounds like the M20d has everything covered. Another side note: I will probably never be in as large a band as Mr. Greg, so I will have tons of leftover channels...but it's good to know they're there if I ever need them.
Keep it rockin' bubba!! Primitive Circus does indeed rock!
