I'm moving onto a narrow boat, and need sound output for a bass guitar,
electric guitar, stage piano, tv and laptop. I'll be saying goodbye to my beloved Peavey
guitar amp, Ashdown bass and Peavey/Laney PA system (enormous, old and underpowered), plus
the stereo, and hopefully getting just one system for all of it.
several considerations, namely power output, power input and sound quality.
*think* I don't need 2 separate sound systems to get the high quality for tv/laptop and
brute force for the guitars and piano. It is only a small space, so it won't need that
The PA will be converted to DC and remain on the boat forever
more, not used for gigging.
There's nowhere even remotely nearby that stocks
the yamaha stagepas to test it in person.
yamaha stagepas 300 (2 x 150w speakers) run the bass, guitar, piano and a mic
Is that enough power output for a decent sound? We must take
into consideration that the boat is lined with wood and is going to reverberate like
nothing has ever reverberated before, reducing the possible output further.
low would the quality be from the small PA? could I use it for my tv to boost the bass,
while using the tv for treble? that's what i basically do right now with an antiquated
sharp stereo system that lost it's treble some years ago. Just wondering if it is likely
to be clear enough, with at least some definition on the higher end. I already put my
laptop through the tv then out to the stereo, so that's fine for music.
mini-me PA System handle being the main practice amp for a bass?
Sorry for bombarding you with questions, I am honestly pretty lost here! I don't want to
waste a company's time and money (plus my money) having to send something back that was
unsuitable if I could have just asked some questions first.
Thanks so much!
