Column PA in conjuction with an 18" sub

Hi Guys

Just wondering if anyone out there has successfully used a column PA system such as the Bose L1, RCF Evox, HK Elements etc in conjunction with a seperate 18" sub such as a KW181 or RCF 8003 for example.

Were there any issues configuring the units? Is this type of configuaration a nightmare to set up because of phase issues?

How did it sound in moderately small live situation, in a smallish to medium size venue, say 50-150 people?

most of these column pa's come with more or less capable subs (even bose got a grip after a couple of years) - and you'll need those subs for use with anything other than just speech!

i still don't like these systems much for very dynamic bands but they do a good job in smaller rooms for some semi-acoustic bands, often making monitors unnecessary.
