Im not sure where this thread fits at TGP, but I figured powered monitors are AMPS...soooooo... For YEARS i've really been ignorent. I've always thought that if my stage tone was excellent, then the audience hears the same thing...WRONG. I've found that its IMPOSSIBLE to play from the stage, and its rather disappointing to find out that probably 80% of the time my tone was horrific of stage. So MOnitors are my next step. I was wondering what some of the BEST powered monitors are. COnfigurations, power, brand, etc. I am looking to become more and more professional with my rig and I think a monitor plugged into our sound system is my next step. BUT I want a GOOD monitor that will really tell me how my rig is sounding through the PA so I can help tweak EQs and such to give the best possible sound to the audience as well as helping my bandmates hearing loss Thanks for any help/experiences you guys may have.
