I use 4 floor wedge monitors. Save your money and look for a used Peavey on Craigslist. From there the sky is the limit.

Carvin PA 620 Powered Mixer

If you read some of my posts, I repeatedly go through our cheap speaker experience. Who wants to drive a Porsche with snow tires? My son and most of his bandmates are School of Rock students, so they are getting excellent instruction on performance techniques.

Is this mixer powerful enough W to use for basement rehearsals? Advertise on the most comprehensive and widely viewed musicians’ website. Those sound systems from the 60s would be neat to own but they are no longer state of the art. For practice you may not need stellar sound and for stage monitors during performances these may be OK.

It would be OK for annoucements and Bingo Calling.

The music is primarily rock: Just like most of us started out. Cheap stuff isn’t much cheaper, but it has nearly no resale value. No subs were being used in that college town back then by anyone. Or, use what I use for rehersal Not a hope in hell. This is a good thing. Thompson Band promo shots on railroad tracks were cool in My bands Facebook page, https: My point is that it can be done in ways that aren’t always obvious.

IMO, the lowest price speaker worth owning is a Yamaha Club series.

They aren’t Meyers or EAW’s but they are perfect for our needs. So, any monitor spec I should avoid? No matter how good you are, ultimately you aren’t any better than the speaker that’s reproducing your sound. Don’t do what we did. This should help them learn that the best sound comes from lower stage volumes. There’s also a negative side.

My questions is about setting up the PA for vocals: Are the speakers just for rehearsals or are you going to use them for FOH? They are plywood, use light neodymium magnets in the woofers, a real compression driver for the highs, and a truck bed liner like finish, which many prefer carbin the carpet “rat fur” of most cheaper cabinets. Totally agree about buying quality equipment.

The mixer should be adequate for vocals at rehearsals but probably not live. This was one reason I decided the PA was a good deal — my son said they often mix the monitors and mains differently at shows to keep their stage volume in check.


At one point a Ford Model T was just fine for transportation, too. May you be in Heaven Half an Hour If the band breaks up, you don’t lose as much value. Just love how equipment crvin was fine for making real money in the 60s and 70s isn’t considered adequate to make BS money today.

Hi forum, I am setting up a rehearsal space for my son and his bandmates. I owned and worked with small PAs back in my teens, a long time ago They just have to be to be priced that low.

I love your advice on moderate stage volumes. Bass, Drums, Guitars, and Keys? What range watts should each wedge be to sound good but avoid distorted vocals or an overheated mixer?

Just about any 8 ohm cabinet will do. Doesn’t have to be the top of the line. That amp isn’t putting out much power, but an efficient speaker cqrvin make up for that.
