Soundcraft M8 Mixer
8 XLR channels + 4 stereo channels.

As far as analog mixers of this size go, it's hard to beat the M8.   Considering that it retails for around three times the price of  the base model Soundcraft's you'd expect something pretty good.   All I can say it that the M8 is worth every cent!   The Soundcraft brochure sums it up well:
 
"In a world of cheap compact mixers, Soundcraft has achieved something exceptional with the Soundcraft M Series. Equally suited to recording and live sound applications, the Soundcraft M Series delivers a great-sounding, reliable performance, session after session, mix after mix. A mixer for life."

Bose MB4 Unpowered Sub Speaker
200 watts. Outputs up to 110dB.

For a compact, light & portable sub, you can't go past the MB4.  You'd think being a compact cabinet that you'd have to compromise on bass quality but this unit gives rich clean bass right down to 40Hz. 
Bose LT MB12 Unpowered Sub Speaker
400 watts. Outputs up to 117dB continuous.

If there's a better sounding sub I've not heard it. The LT series is the very top of the Bose range.  Made from 13 ply marine grade Baltic Birch, Bose have spared no expense in producing this fine sounding unit. It gives clean well defined bass without the rumble.

Bose 302A Speaker
100 watts continuous, 200 watts peak, 102dB

These are beautifully compact main speakers.  They are a bit different to many other Bose speakers in that they are a 2 way cabinet containing 1 x 5" speaker & 2 arrayed 2" speakers.  The multi-chamber bass enclosure gives surprising bass for a compact cabinet.  They give wide even dispersion & have a warm tone.

Bose 101 Speakers
60 watts continuous. 4 Ohms

We use these as satelite speakers or where a micro folback is required.   By themselves they can sound a bit plain but when used the Bose processing they really come to life.  
Shure SM58 Microphone
What a classic! The favoured vocal microphone of performers for more than 30 years.
Roland / Edirol M10-DX Digital Mixer
No other mixer of this compact size offers such a range of features.  Perfect for outdoor events where there's limited power.
