    Is there a speaker that has an input in it for a mic that can be used to have vocals at our rehearsal? We don't have a singer and we don't have a PA, but me and the drummer share the vocal parts some and all we have is 60 watt bass amp with a 12 inch speaker and it doesn't reproduce a very loud sound unless it is a bass. ANy suggestions?

    When I was in your situation, I bought a mixer like this one:

    ..and ran vocals through the bass amp. It didn't sound great, but it worked. If it's just volume that's the problem, you could get a mic preamp like the ART MP: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/ART-Tube-MP-Studio-Mic-Preamp?sku=180581. That may give the vocals some boost through the amp.

    If your guitarist is playing clean, you could try mixing the vocals through the guitar amp as well.

    Was it a combo amp?

    The JBL Eons have a mic input. They can be used as a wedge or as a main speaker, too.
