Tuning a PA - Getting the best sound
      10/07/11 09:01 AM
Does anyone have any tips or methods used to set up and tune a small PA?

I've got a pair of JBL FOH speakers (PRX615M), a pair of EON 315's for fold back and a 31 band eq for each channel (DBX 231+1231). Generally the PA is setup and packed down for every gig and the venues are rarely the same

I've read about ringing out the speakers, which seems like it gives a good starting point for controlling feedback and getting the most volume from the system, but does that mean it will sound good to the audience?

For the most part, only vocals and acoustic guitars will be run through the PA with bands from duo’s to rock bands up to 5 people in small venues with no dedicated engineer at the controls.

Thanks for any feedback!
