Even if I dont fill it I can still overpower our girls only choir. But they didnt compete today and the mixed group is louder so I can use a bit more volume. The pa's usually arnt that powerfull at these things. A ton of mikes and wires though. I think there were four wired mikes and 3 wireless up front. I think 2 monitors for the front and I couldnt see it but we had good monitor sound in the back for the band too which is very nice.
I had the mid lows turned up around 2:30 which is higher then normal to try to cut through without more volume. It ended up a bit growlier then I liked but it worked. I also realized that my amp dosnt sound really good to pop the g string turned up. Probably cuz its a 15 inch combo but ohwell. The only other amps I have is a smaller 15 and a hartke 4x10 but I dont want to use that because its the schools and way bigger.
All in all I think it was pretty succesfull music wise. A bit of drama with the director but ohwell. Thanks for the suggestions. I was thinking I needed to turn the lows way day to not sound boomy but I dont think I did. It was hard to tell on the recording. I ended up basically sidefilling the stage with my amp due to the position I was in. First time I heard myself on a recording actually when the choir was singing in 4 years haha
