Hey just wanted to send out a huge and massive THANK YOU to all the folks who helped me! Agedhorse, Road Ranger, Dcastar, Al Poulin, Bobby1Note, OneEng, Art Flood, twostone, W. M. Hellinger (who I ordered a ****************load of cables from and will need some more this week), sibyrnes, abzurd, Djiceman, CraigV, jlb, StratGuy, Miko Man, Axis Player, and a ton of others who I cannot remember off the top of my head. Sorry for everyone who helped me and I didn't list!!
Anyway, side from the obvious Audiopyle cables, I ended up ordering:
Mackie DL1608 which will be my backup mixer for the full band and my regular mixer for the acoustic duo. This gives me time to decide on the X32 versus the 24 or 32 channel StudioLive.
2 JBL PRX618XLF subs
One EV ELX112p (as an extra monitor wedge for me because I like to take my IEM's out and monitor FOH)
Covers (speaker bags) for everything
Two of the Chauvet 4Bar Tri LED light trees
One Chauvet COLORpalette
iPad 3 64 GB to run the lights and mixers
Hopefully all the gear will come sometime next week or so.
I do have a question about speaker stands for the acoustic duo: I have poles, obviously, for the tops on subs, but I noticed that the PRX612m's are pretty light. So for small bars and restuarants with an acoustic duo, can I get away with cheapie tripod stands, such as the Pyle Audio ones on Amazon?
Or should I really bite the bullet (buying once) and go for the nice tripod stands?
Thanks again everyone!!
