Need some advise. Im a bandleader of a 5 piece: Drums, Percussionist (washboard), bass, guitar, accordion. 3 vocals. Zydeco band. We've been running the following setup, but have had some issues with monitors' poor sound quality, breakup, and dropping out: Peavey Powered mixer 6 channel 400 W (200 watt to each mains (or monitors if we assigned it) PA Mains: Yamaha passive 12" monitor speakers (yea, I know they're monitor speakers, designed for near field projection, but they've been working pretty well as mains) Monitors: Fender 2 127OP 100W powered monitors (tiny little powered monitors, small, light, convienient) The PA is designed to be loud enough for bars and small outside parties but be light and small. Read: I don't want subs. I don't have a power amp. I don't want 50lb speaker cabs.Etc. Im a wimp, because I set it all up myself. Its also been cheap. We run thru the PA: 3 vocals (including our drummer, which picks up snare), Accordion line out of accordion amp, kick drum, and sometimes a DI Fiddle). The monitors on some gigs have struggled to keep up with our loud drummer (and thus loud band) and recently one of them died in a gig. Busted input jack. It will cost at least $100 to repair, if not more, cuz its a wierd jack. I could get it fixed and go status quo. Which has worked more or less ok for 3 years Im considering: upgrading powered monitors. What kind should I get? Ill consider used. QSC K10s sound good, but expensive and heavy! Mackie 350s sound good but good. And is there an issue with them being on their side and overheating? Should I use my Yamaha PA mains (which are actually passive Monitors) and go for powered Mains (Mackie 350 or 450's)? Running power to monitors is convient, but running power to mains means a lot more extention chords. Thanks so much!
