Hi, I a newbie here and am hoping to pick a few brains. I'm in a country band and we're putting together a PA system. Everyone has some gear already. So far we have: - Allen and Heath MixWizard 16 channel input mixer (used for FOH and monitor mix) - 2 Peavey SP 2 2-Way 15" Speaker Cabinets - 2 Peavy 18" subs - Variety of sm57 and 58 mics - 100' snake - Outboard gear: a 2-channel dbx compresser and an dual 31 band eq - 4 Shure PSM200 in ear monitor systems (one for each member, drummer currently uses a powered wedge but is switching to PSM400. Also, we currently rehearse with the in ears). We're looking to use this setup for a variety of gigs, small clubs to small outdoor shows, such as on a deck or bar patio. The goal is to keep things simple and easy to setup and tear down. One thing is I do like to have the sound in stereo. I know a lot of folks say mono is fine but I simply prefer the sound of stereo. Budget is around $2K. My questions are: What would be a recommended brand of power amp(s) that are good quality but reasonable priced (but not cheap)? Would it be better to have say, two modest amps running in bridged mono (one for each channel) or a single, more robust amp running in stereo? What's the simplest way of micing the drums but still getting good sound (kick and snare and two overheads, for example)? Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
