Okay the legal limit of this room is 400 people, but it can probably easily fit about 500-600 people tops. The room is a big pentagon and has some reverb to it. I had some questions about setting up this venue. This music played is Christian pop-rock, etc.... I need recommendations on what to rent and have a general idea: 24-32 mixer 1x15" or 2x15" speakers 4 monitors Drums will be mic'd with a kit Question 1: I'm debating whether we should get subs (size?) and let the bass player use a 4x10" and 15" stack. OR forget the subs and let him play out an 8x10" stack with the dual cab 15" speakers for everything else. It's a very big band: -3 vocals -2 rhythm guitars/electric -1 electric lead -bass player -piano/synth -drums -violin/cello Should we let our guitar amps do a lot of work and simplify the PA system? or control the stage level and let everything out of the PA? The idea is to make our sound very big, especially the low end. Of course we need everything to balance out. All suggestions are welcome. We are renting gear and I've already checked our prices. I just need suggestions on the ideal setup. Thank you.
