Also a tip if your using large PA speaker for a party or something always remember to warm the speaker up so to speak, leave them playing for a while at a low level, an gradually turn the amp up, or it can fuck them up after a while

i haven't bought the gear yet, but i'm buying a 1600 watt amp for £120, i'll look for some 800 watt speakers.

That would be the best idea, but you can still get away with weaker speaker, but just dont stick the amp on full power

If i were you id invest on the speakers first, and then upgrade the amp later. Makes more sense than buying a good amp and being really careful with some less powerful speakers.

I dunno though.

i don't have the money to spend on actives, it would cost double

@aflex, why would i want to spend £270 on 300 watts of power when i can spend £280 on 1000 watts?
