Has any of you guys tried mixing live sound on X1's and HD15's ?
How do instruments and vocals sound split between HD15 and mid horns above?

totally depends how high you cut the hd15s/how capable your mids are..
i personally dont like the sound of the hd15s if run too high in general as they tend to sound boomy above say 160hz, ideally you`d cut at around 130hz, which also leaves most vocals out of passband.

Can't comment on the X1.  

HD15 sound great for live music.  Lots of people complain about the upper bass from the HD15's sounding boomy, honky, etc.  Two things are absolutely need for the HD15's to sound good.   First proper wadding in the chamber and most important out of band EQ.  The HD's have a huge peak around 160-180.  This has to be taken down even if crossed over at 100.   I cross mine at 150 and they sound fine as long as the above mentioned hump is removed pre-crossover.
