PA Cabs? Peavey, Carvin or Other?

  1. I am looking to build a PA system... right now it will be for Vocals only. But I would like to build something to runa whole band at amedium to large Venue. SO whatever I buy now I would like to be able to use in the future just add on to it. Currently I am looking at the Carvin 1588 and the Peavey TLS 6X. I wanted to know wich you would suggest since I can get them for the same price. I like that the Peaveys are a little smaller but the carvins are more sensitive and have a little larger frequency range. Please let me know your opinions... Thank you

    I have had PV PA for many years. The stuff is good sounding and pretty much bullet proof. I cant speak to the Carvin stuff.

    My band has a Carvin PA system (including these huge ass Carvin speakers). Its a nice setup. Honestly, the PA sounds great for vocals, keys, and even guitar is ok, but I hate the way my bass sounds thru it. Maybe I just like my amp way better.

    The best bang for the buck is the Yamaha clubV series for around the same price as the the other brands you speak of. Carvin's which I also own have bad lowend response. The Yammies have Emenence drivers they are very clear and can handle lows very well. I play a CD through my system and it sounds like a home stereo. Peaveys never impressed me.

    JBL's SRX series, if it's not out of your price range.
     
  7. I just purchased some Bagend TA15C. to my ears they sound incredible. I was just wondering if any of you have any expirience with them.
