I wish I would have skipped a few steps and gone straight to a powered mixer. Amp and mixer in one box. It saves several hookups every time you set up. Less pieces to carry too. Mine is 210w each side and fills a smaller ballroom quite nicely. These days I only drag out my bigger horsepower amp on b...

Sometimes half the fun of working a new room is figuring out how to set up for it. Big rooms can be a big challenge sometimes... A wedding DJ I met prefers those coffin shape speakers (He has some great EVs) placed on the floor. Something about being on the floor he says. I have some similar Peaveys...
