    We have a gig at a bar with a house PA that I'm just not sure is up to it.
    1. Behringer Xenyx 1202fx mixer
    2. Behringer B210D 10" powered monitors, pair
    That's it! No floor monitors, mic stands, etc.
    My gut says to bring our own PA, but it's a hassle since its older, big, heavy equipment, but still sounds really good.

    Is there a soundman provided? If not take your system. PS this is not a bash on Berhinger, but thats a coffehouse/acoustic system at best.

    My old band did a gig with a similar type deal and we just augmented it with our own powered stuff..

    You should describe your band and the gig.

    Rock and jam covers band. Long, narrow neighborhood bar, no sound guy.
    We ended up bringing our own PA, as we figured it would be a dry run for our next gig. For that one we must provide our own PA, and it is a more "upscale" venue, so we decided to work out the setup. All went well, except we discovered that the cord to the power supply of our vocal effects box had gotten chewed through.
