Amplify Acoustic Set ?


Looking forward to getting my new Mapex kit, can't wait but I was wondering what the best speaker set up, brands, size of speakers, etc to purchase. I have Shure mics I used on my last kit through our 1000w 10 channel head and a pair of 15 " cabinets.I don't have the specifics on those.It sounded good but of course the vocals are going there too.What do I need speaker wise to isolate my kit from the vocal pa? The band is for fun,not a money maker, we normally play smaller to medium venues.But I still want the option to amplify my kit without going broke....$300-400 would be about max(even less would make me happy.Thanks

A desent mixer would be a good fix.

I've used the sure drum mics.

Re: Amplify Acoustic Set ?


Hi,I do have a good 1000 watt pa system that I run the drums thru now but my question is what speaker cabinet should get to use my extra 100 watt amp head that my 4 mics will plug into.So what speaker(s)would work with that to separate my kit from the vocal system.Playing mostly small club and some outdoor gigs.Want to try and keep cost below $300 if possible. I think this is a better question.....

I've used "Kustom" PA speakers without a problem. To be exact for voals and drums.

Kustoms have a wide range tweeter with a 20" speaker.

They work with 4 & 8 ohms.

They have inputs and out puts.

Sigular with 8 ohms impeadance of 8 ohms and when used with the output they give 4 ohms impeadance.

For clubs they work very well.

And they are afordable.
