Situation: Popular, LOUD, local club we play at regularly has a 1000 watt PA system, good acoustics, good sound people. The band is loud, the club attendees are loud, it is what it is. The sole vocal monitor, for reasons unknown, is mounted on the ceiling about 5 feet back from the stage, pointed downward ... but it's pointed at the back wall above our drummers head. Despite our and the sound guys' best efforts, we cannot make this be heard well on stage. It's a problem for both vocals and saxophone monitoring. I've decided what we need is to run the vocal and sax mics to monitor amp(s) on stage to run our own monitor system, and split the signal off to the house to be fed into the PA. Sound guys at the club are laid back and agreeable (I haven't asked them if they care, but I've played there enough to be sure whatever we want to do ourselves is OK). Question is, how is this best accomplished? Mic splitters? What and how? I was intending to use a small 100w multi-channel head for the monitor amp, but an output from it to the house is not feasible I think because all I'm going to have is only a single output available instead of individual mics. I've also got a 16 channel board (passive). Individual mics in > amp > monitor system with independent outputs from the board into the house? Help me suss this out. I've got about 4 weeks before our next date there to put it together.
