OK here's the situation.
I have a PA and guitar gear than I'm just barely fitting in my Jeep Patriot. There is NO room to breath. You can't see light through the rear view mirror and I've got gear in the front seat! LOL Here's what I'm jamming in the Jeep.
2- EV S-12 spks
1- Carvin TRx Sub 22.5" X 27" X 20" ??
1-6U SKB rack case with 3- amps
1-6U rack case with Crossover and EQ - could downsize to a 3U
3-Bags with Spk wires, mic cables, guitar wires- fits nicely on the back seat floor
2- guitar stands
3- mic stands
crate with mics
Fenderish/Allen 12" spk Combo Cab about the size of a 70's Deluxe cab
Mixer case about 24"X24"x9"
small metal gear suitcase
AC wire case
Guitar Pedal board
Sometimes a snake.
YES, I actually fit all this into my Jeep. But it's not without considerable effort.
I could downsize the monitors
I don't see where I'll make any usable space by changing the mains because I'd only save one amp space by going powered and the EV's are only about 18"X 12"X 22" Unless I dump the sub and go with powered 15" cabs???
The system isn't top shelf but sounds good enough for what I'm using it for. Last night we played an outdoor venue (300-400 people) and the mgr asked me to turn down the volume. I'm using 3 Behringer 3000 amps. One each for mains, monitor, and one bridged for the sub.
The RCF 312 or 310's are nice but buying 6 to go all powered would be nearly $3K and I wouldn't get much for my existing gear.
Any suggestions for reducing the size of my setup while retaining or improving the quality without breaking the bank? A tall order, I know!
