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.

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?
