Why the hell would you switch to powered speakers? Sorry I am biased against powered speakers. They don't make any sense to me. But why from DRs to commercial speakers. Isn't that a sin on this forum.
Simplicity and ease of use. We got QSC KW tops and subs. We run one xlr from the board and daisy chain all 4 speakers. Power and crossovers are built in. We need a lot more power than we used to with the DRs and T39s but a lot less fussing with EQ and such, no worries about blowing speakers, no hauling around racks of amps, etc.
We also switched from SAC to a Soundcraft SI Expression mixing console. Again for simplicity mostly.
