Hey, my band's planning on doing some house parties in the future and I'm wondering what the norm for PA size is these events? I'm the bassist and somewhat of a volume nazi, though not too hardcore. We're planning on running just vocals (lead and 1 background) through the PA. Here's what we have right now, a Behringer UB802 mixer (barely adequate) and a Carvin PM15A (powered 15 inch molded speaker). Here's links http://www.carvin.com/products/single.php?ItemNumber=PM15A&CID=APS http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/fg=42/g=live/s=specials/search/detail/base_pid/631238/ What more do you think I'd need for a house party? I'm thinking that I'd buy either a QSC RMX 850 or Carvin DCM1000 poweramp, 2 Kustom 12 inch speakers for about $80 a pop, and 2 speaker stands. That way I could use the monitor stands of the Carvin PM15A to make it a floor monitor for the lead singer, then have the 12 inch Kustom speakers be on stands out towards the audience. Do you think this would be more than adequate for the house party situation? Also, could you tell me how I'd wire this setup? I'm thinking that I'd put the Carvin PM15A monitor through the post fader aux send/effects send, and the Kustom 12 inchers through main L and R outs. That means that the Carvin would be powering itself, and the Kustom speakers would be making the poweramp run 8 ohms per channel, right? Then if I daisy chained both speakers to a single channel, they'd be doing 4 ohms on one channel/bridged if I opted to, right? What's your house party setup? I'd like as best of an idea of what most small bands use for these occasions. Thanks.
