    I joined a cover band, but we have no PA to practice through. The singer's been going through a guitar amp, but that's getting old. The guitar player bought a powered mixer, so all we need now are some cabs. MF and Mars have Nady 15" cabs for $130. Does anyone have any experience with those. They don't have to be great, I just don't want to get stuck with real crappy cabs. Or should we try to scrounge together some more money and maybe get a couple Yamaha SE series 12" monitors?

    I bought a couple of Nady PFW12 12-inch Floor Monitors for our Praise Band. Same as you, I didn't expect much for $100 each, but they're not bad at all. The 1/4" jacks are plastic, and they use that cheap carpet covering, but they sound pretty decent.

  3. I don't know about where you live, but around here (Minnesota) places like Music-Go-Round usually have a pretty good selection of good quality used PA cabinets...stuff like JBL...at reasonable prices. You may have to play the price haggling game , though.
