Quick question, this weekend we set up outside to jam, we rented some PA speakers and a powered mixer board "yorkville" i think, 400 watts per side. I decided to try and hook up to the pa, since i had never done so before, my amp has a DI out on the back (ampeg svt 4pro),on the board I set the gain at about 3/4's, the volume on the mixer where my bass was plugged into, basically all the way up, volume on my bass all the way up, and the line level out on my amp to full, which controls the signal to the mixer as well. But it still seemed like it was not overly loud, you could hear vocals good, guitar good, and the gain and volume were turned down a fair bit on both of these, I had basically every thing cranked up but still I was lost in the mix when I turned my speakers off and just ran threw the PA. Is this normal? What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions? I just started looking into PA systems, so I dont have a abundance of knowledge, but I think I have some grasp or a basic concept on how they work, or am I just missing something obvious? Thanks!
