    bit new to live mixing so any help here would be appreciated...i have a 2 channel 31 band EQ and all of my front of house is in mono. Can I use channel A on my EQ for my front of house and use channel B for my foldback (monitors)? Will it work? Is it stupid? Is there any reason why I have to use both channels for front of house? I'm not running anything but vocals through the PA (guitar and drums are using only on stage sound...room is not that big).

    any help here please!!

    Yes, you can use it that way. The two channels of a graphic EQ are quite independent and don't have to be used as a stereo pair.

    You need to split the output of the GE channel you are using for FOH to go into both inputs of the FOH power amp, or daisy-chained into both line ins if you have active PA loudspeakers.
