I'm not sure if this is in the right forum or not.. move if necessary. ok. I'm in a metal band with 2 geetards. and we've played quite a few shows. Anytime we've been an opener, the monitors have been great. I can hear both geetards, vocals and both the kick and snare. Then a few weeks ago we headlined a show. Set up the monitors ourselves, During sound check. The sound guy (a good friend) asked what we wanted. We ran a sound check and it sounded ok. I asked for a little bit of 2k on the bass for me to hear myself over the loud guitars.. and when it came show time.. I couldn't hear a thing. I asked the guy running the monitor board to turn me up, which didn't happen. So... I ran back and cranked my rig, (svt4-810) and still, i could barely hear myself... So, I'm asking for a rough estimate to set up the monitors during a sound check. Any one with some suggestions, I'm Kinda a live Noob. thanks!
