Hi I am just looking for some advice and opinions on the subject of P.A support. I am in a wedding/function band which has our own PA system (2x Mackie 12" mains and 2 x Mackie 18" subs, Mackie desk and rack compression and EQ) Last night we did I wedding in a small'ish village hall (around 100 people) and I put everything through the P.A, bass, kick, guitar, vocals and keys/synth... I have always been a firm believer that its not for volume sake but for overall balance and ommmppp (with the subs) I feel that the kick drum and bass guitar should always be in the P.A again just for the balance and OOMMPP. I dont think I can bring myself to not use our subs Overall it sounded pretty good and everyone said they had a great time. (With a few compliments to the band ) But....is it necessary for us to use all that gear? I am still new to the world of sound engineering and I find it hard to do the sound and be the bassist at the same time, so I am just after some advice and opinions. Many thanks!
