Amp(s) or PA: What do you push your live performance through?



So everyone has their preference, but Iím curious to know, what you play through live?
I currently play through a couple powered speakers.  It fits well with the band I play in.

I had to compromise to cover noisy 'rock' gigs, and ethereal electronic gigs in ancient churches and reverberant places, I settled for 4 Behringers (some gigs are quadraphonic). I have sometimes borrowed a ceramic speaker for my free improv duets - mainly in studios, that has the best sound but is not really suitable for the rock gigs.

I use 1 to 2 JBL EON 610's.  Decent coverage.  Weight is an important factor for me.  They are very light.  One speaker is plenty for smaller venues unless stereo is an absolute necessity.  Larger venues I play usually have a house system.  In those cases, just one speaker to use as a monitor.
