Since I'm a cheap bastard I threw together a PA amp for $125 (for the mixer). Knowing that the LMII is relatively flat and warm when set dead flat, filters off, I am going to plug the mixer directly into the front input. At this point I dont have alot of eq options (the mixer has 3 eq knobs) so I might use the high-mid on the LMII to cut a bit at 800hz if needed. The mixer is pretty cool in that it has 99 built in digital effects... most of those I wont use but I will dial in some reverb. Anyway, the room is not too big at 40 x 60 feet with about 50 people attending (private party) so I think the 2 Yorkville YX12 monitors on stands will be fine. I got the idea to use the LMII + mixer from a post a couple years ago on TB, where the TBer had done the same thing with good results. I did test it at a rehearsal and it sounded pretty good. This will be the first time using it at a gig tonite so it should be interesting!
