p.a questions

Member for

Hello people i have challenge i have been set a budget of £500 and with it i need to buy a p.a system which will need to include only the basics i.e 4 nice sounding speakers which need to have bass and treble that will be wall mounted on brackets prefrebly 10 inch sub, speakon cables etc and then the power amp/amps i know its not the greatest budget but i;m sure something can be worked out. The venue is small i.e 100-150 people and just needs to be powerfull enough to get people dancing so a bit of low end and nice treble i notice alot of venues of similar size have smallish sized speakers that genrally sound good i.e JBL samson amps etc??. Does any one know of any starting points or good advice on equipment and where to buy it from based in th u.k prefrebly london.

and are the cd decks and mixer to come out of the $700? how about a mixer?? i'm not sure if anyone around here is into dj equipment but someone one may be able to help some... not sure what might be available locally... any decent music stores near you??? you mentioned 10" subs i would take that to mean in addition to the main speakers... or are you asking for 4 full range speakers that have 10" woofers???

Apparently you have no interest in anything reliable or quality-sounding. Cheap JUNK from China and Korea is just that....you get what you pay for these days. And in regards to the poster who directed you to Carlsboro, that brand TRIED to get distribution in the States several years ago, but could not compete with the likes of Peavey in terms of reliability or value, and they gave up here. In addition, I have read British music mag reviews bitching about their guitar amps blowing up (!) during test reviews....FWI.
Why are you so pre-disposed to having 4 cabs. Why not 2 of better quality? And how do you get (1) power amp that you list is "525+525", and then claim the "rms" output is "1050+1050"? Was there a typo eror, or are you being misled to believe that the amp will double its output when you double the speakers? Cheap power amps never achieve that in real time useage, usually because the of their whimpy power supplies and the smaller copper wires in the transformers; they can't take the heat build-up. Anyway, good luck, mate!

I totally agree with you on quality and have been searching for a pa now preferring to have two better quality speakers and a better quality power amp instead of the plastic tack. Obviously i'm still finding it difficult to assemble a package on my £700 budget which will include hopefully a resonable pair of speakers and an amp with enough power to entertain a 120 person capacity club at a good sound level. so again any help sent i would be gratefull for.
