Hey all, im currently playing bass in a band and loving it. Being only 14 a begginner at bass and new to electronics and stuff, i have alot of questions. One of our guitarists recently picked up a free used Peavey mixer amp, which was a great find for us, and he says is was 750$ new. Its an 8 channel pretty big mixer with speaker jacks and mic imputs, with built in reverb and tape outputs and so forth. We took it in to a music store and the guy told us with two speakers it is basically a pa system. So first off, what kind of speakers do you reccommend? we dont want to buy anything over 250$ a spkr. Next, we have 8 mic imputs and only one singer, is it possible to run the amps directly into the mixer to come through the speakers so we can mix everybody, or do we have to mic the amps ? We'd rather not because mics are expensive.... if it matters the guys have Crate 30 watt guitar amps, if that means anything. And we would also like to save the mics for the drums. Also we looked at fender 15" pa speakers, would these make a big difference when added to two guitar amps and drums? Ok any input on pa systems would be a great help, and wed appreciate an info on how we can use it at best. Peace. chris
