    I play in my church and we are getting a new sound system. I plan on plugging into the system via a direct box. I suspect that I won't be able to hear myself very well and would like some sort of monitor. What should I use as a monitor? I have an Ampeg B100R amp, but I really don't want to hall it back and forth twice a week. I am looking for something smaller.

    you need the specs on the sound system. Most have monitor outs that you can plug a small tilt back speaker into. Get the specs off it, take them to your local audio dealer and tell them what you need. They should be able to set up with a cheap speaker that should fit the bill.
  4. Buy a Ampeg B-50R for home use. They sound incredible. I have one at home I use for practice and a Carvin RL610 at church.

    Thanks to those who responded. I ended up buying a Hartke kickback 10 which I believe makes a great monitor as well as a great practice amp.
