Hey all,
this is slightly OT but might be interesting for all on the list who are 
performing electronic music on stage.

I'm looking for a local (not PA) sound reinforcement that should be 
high-quality (flat frequency response) with enough bass, powerful enough 
to keep up with typical (non-distorting) bass or guitar amps and with 
rugged design. These excludes the typical compact near- to midfield 
studio monitors.
Additionally it should be portable, hence the weight limit of about 
20kg. Stereo amplification (or even better: modular loudspeaker 
cabinets) would be a plus, tone control is not necessary.

Right now i have found the following combos which look pretty ok:
- Acoustic Image Contra: 
- Schertler David: 

There are a couple of decent loudspeaker cabinets, which are also an 
option, e.g.
- ACME Low B1 - http://www.acmebass.com
but i'm still looking for a small and powerful amplifier (about 300W / 
4Ohm per channel), preferably mono block or bridgeable stereo, with 
balanced in and neutrik out.

Any experiences, ideas?

greetings, Thomas
