I'm late to the party I suppose, but it's worth a try. It's not huge, it's not magnificent, but it's a 4-person rock band + DJ system, so it gets the job done.

Right now we have:

Alesis Multimix 16 ->
Behringer Dual 15 Band Equalizer ->
Behringer Comp/Limit/Gate ->
Peavey 2/3-way Stereo/4-way Mono Crossover ->
QSC EX4000 (channel A bad, using channel B) -> Highs
Carver PM700 -> L side Mon, R side Mids
Behringer EP2500 Parallel Mono -> Subs
Yamaha S12e -> 2 on Highs
Kustom KSC215H -> 2 on Mids, 1 on Monitor for drummer
Gemini GSM-1500 -> 1 on Monitor for guitar/singer

Our plans in the future are to purchase an EP4000 from Guitar Center (we have a $400 check to spend there), use the left over money + money we may get from selling two bad amps to buy 4 new HF drivers for all 4 KSC215H's, put the EP4000 on subs, put the EP2500 on mids/highs (it will run a 2 ohm load, did it for 8 hours in my house at full volume with my car subs :) ), and put the Carver + S12e's on monitors. It's not pro quality, it's not the most expensive rig, but it works for what we need.

Those center-fills are for the cathedral reverb, come on dudes!!

While amusing myself in Photoshop I may have put on the wellies.

Oops, oh no .... I've given the game away!

Those downfills are necessary as the inner R5's are spitting straight into each others horns and none of the R5's on the bottom row seem to have enough tilt to make the first rows. let alone anone befor the back of this room. Which makes me wonder why the top row?! lol!


(sorry, just worked with F1 too much. Niche shop though :tongue:
