This is our band: 3 vocalists- through PA keyboard- through PA electric guitar- amp & through PA 2 acoustic guitars- through PA bass- amp drums- n/a (acoustic but may be purchasing electronic drums in the future) We have one monitor channel that feeds two 5.5" wall mount monitors and one 12" wedge. We have problems with our monitors not being loud enough and also with our sound guy getting us a good mix. We don't have alot of money for new equipment but could probably come up with $1000-2000. My thoughts are to go to powered monitors, perhaps a couple wedges and 2 or 3 personal sized monitors. These could all be fed of the current monitor channel. It would need to be changed from a powered to a line level feed. Perhaps we could run an additional channel. Other options are in ear monitors (I have heard negative opinions on these) or adding passive monitors. Do you have any opinions or advice for me?
