Hosa makes a nice little cable that allows you to use the inserts as direct outs. If you have a seperate powered mixer you could use them to tap only the channels you want in the monitors. The majority of the signal you want in the monitors will be the vocals, especially if you have a loud stage level. I've done this for friends that were short on equiptment many times with good results. Remember to use the pans on the powered mixer to get 2 additional monitor sends. Its cheap and works. For the money those little PV series boards are a great bang for the buck. I think Peavey sub'd the building out to the same people that make the Abrahms M1A1 tank LOL. They are next to indestructable.
