    Hi guys,

    One of the members of my band quit today, and he would like to be paid off for his contribution to the PA. I am trying to figure out what the PA is worth now. We paid $1700 for it brand new, after taxes. It is less than one year old and still looks new.

    That includes:

    PA1200R 12 ch stereo rack mixer.
    DCM1000 1000W power amp.
    Two 1584 3-way 15" high powered speakers.
    Two CM50 mic.
    Two SH15 input.
    Two PH50 50' speaker cables.
    Two speaker stands.
    Two Mic stands.

    So what would you pay for it if you needed to buy a used PA and you had the money available to make a reasonable offer on this? Here is Carvin's link to it for your reference:


    Thanks for your advice!

    If you tried to sell it, what would you get? About half of what you paid, I'd say. So it seems like $800 or $900 might be a fair assessment.

    Any way you look at it, he ain't gonna be happy. But he's got to absorb his share of the depreciation, just like the rest of you. This is why I own our PA all by my lonesome. Somebody leaves, no problem. Unless I leave ... get the picture?
