I'm designing a PA for my band for the first time. In all the 15+ years I've been playing I've never had to deal with anything other than a small coffee-shop or practice PA so I want to make sure I'm on the right track. Any larger places on the east coast that I've played have house PAs. Apparently it's different here in Colorado. Around town it seems like other bands are using in the 4000-6000W range to power everything and run all the instruments through the PA. Since funds are limited my goal is to build the PA to initially handle vocals and the kick drum and then as funds come in, we'll add on to handle everything. I have the monitors (aka practice PA on it's side), mixer and effects handled for now. Steps 1) 2x Yamaha S115V powered by a Crown XLS2000 Power conditioner 2) 2x Yamaha DXS15 15" Active subwoofer BBE Max-X3 Crossover 3) duplicate step #1 + whatever splitter thing you need to send signal to both amps I think this will give me a nice incremental way to work up to what we need. Thoughts?
