Update: So I picked up the Yamahas yesterday afternoon and firstly tried them with an ipod and my small mixer. Wow - these things really packed a punch and will get some duty at parties around the pool next year. Took them to the gig and they were awesome. Loud and clear. Small and light. Set the DSP to "monitor" and the highpass to 100hz to avoid transients from the kick and bass amp and they were perfect. Very happy.
