Looking for opinions - personal monitor setup in Craig Vecchione's Live Sound & Production Posted March 2, 2017 · Edited March 3, 2017 by SteinbergerHack I'm considering buying some new gear to set up a personal monitor rig for vocals and guitar. I play with several different groups in a variety of venues, and I'm just tired of the variability in monitor availability and quality. This would also allow me to sub-mix acoustic instruments and guitar(s) so that I'm not using a ton of inputs on the FOH console. It will also allow me to point my guitar "cabinet" right at me facing the back of the stage, which should make the FOH guy happy. Primary motivation is to control my own monitor so that I can always hear my instruments and vocals properly, and guarantee a minimum quality level. Since I can then run without a guitar cabinet, it doesn't add to the amount of stuff I'll be carrying. Inputs are some combination of: 2 vocal mics (mine plus an additional for one situation where a wedge is shared) 1 electric guitar feed from a Bogner/Torpedo Live rig 3 acoustic instruments; steel-string and whatever else the gig calls for. I'm thinking of using a Behringer XR12 and JBL PRX715. This would give me the mix control, separate FOH feeds for vocal mic and instruments, and EQ for the monitor feed. I'm guessing that the PRX is solid enough to work for nearly any local gig, and won't require a bunch of crazy EQ'ing to sound decent. Thoughts? Am I going to be disappointed with the "Brand B" mixer option, or will it be good enough for live work? How is the PRX in terms of sound quality? How do the FOH techs feel about this approach?
