Hey everyone. Right now our guitarist is looking at upgrading our PA system. Right now he has a set of circa 1970s Peavey towers and monitors, with a decent mixer. He is looking at Carvin equipment...but is debating whether to go with two way or three way speakers. Should they be powered, or is that not necessary? We don't usually play huge venues or anything, but sometimes do outdoor shows (think about 100-200 people or so). He's looking at about $2000 for a complete package (speakers, monitors, and mixing board with about 16 channels). Obviously, it would be mainly for the vocals, but we want to be able to run our other instruments through it if needed (especially my bass amp, since I just use a Peavey 115 combo). Also, is Carvin considered to be pretty good, or are there other brands worth considering? I don't know a lot about PA systems, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
