I'm in a similar position .. trying to lighten my "load" given a partially herniated disc. Sold off my large system (Yorkville Unity) and working on my mid size system. The RCF EVOX 8 I bought has been great. I use it for most things (except outdoor events where I need a tighter pattern coverage). It's less than 50 pounds for the bass unit and the top together. I would like another similar/smaller set and maybe these EV are it. The JBL were fine, sounded good, but looked a little "plasticky" (if that's a thing).
