Default 2 way + sub PA system: what power for each way?

Hi all,

This would be a small/moderate PA system, using a pair of 2 way speakers, and 2 subs.
What power repartition would be ok? (I prefer to know the ratios, rather than the pure power numbers)

Is something like 5/2/1 OK (sub/mid/high)? (this would be 200/70/40 in my case)
Just remember: in theory there's no difference between theory and practice. But in practice it usually is quite a bit difference... Bob Pease

Sounds about right for drivers of similar sensitivity.
