Hi Tripwire

If you were doing an accoustic style gig, with a quietish audience it might be ok, but if you're trying to rock out I think you might be a bit underpowered.

Your best bet is to keep the powered mixer purely for vocals, and use the best and loudest speakers with that, and save the others for guitar.

Can you give a few more details as to line up, style etc?

well what we're gonna do is put all the speakers rite out in front and i plugged in the mic w/ the guitar into the half stack ALONE and it was loud enough to play in a garage w/ (we did) not to offend u or prove u wrong or anything but the 50 watts is very loud. (sovtek head, tube) our line up is:

1 guitarist(vocals)
1 bassist(vocals) we switch up
1 drummer

Hey, I only have 15 years professional experience in the Rock 'n Roll industry, I'm not offended, I'm still learning

Seriously, if that's what you want to do then go for it, but a better idea would be to just use your guitar amp for guitar, blag another amp from somewhere, and use that as a vocal pa with your speakers and mixer. The mixer doing one set of speakers, and the amp doing the other set.

The 50w guitar amp will eaily fill the room, but would sound rubbish for vocals, and you also have the problem of evening out the levels of guitar and vox in that send.

Thumbs up rent one!!

Hi trip-wire,

rent a proper PA. (something with 2 subs and 2 tops ~ 300- 400 Watts per channel, perhaps a nice active one like HK audio ELIAS) Believe me, it's much better to have gear you can rely on, you can fully concentrate on the music, and that's the most important part, isn't it?
