Re: Your PA Rig?


For about 4 years now I have been using a pair of little Mackie SRM150s as 
my personal stereo monitoring.

In a small space like an art gallery or something like that they can be 
the PA as well.

If I need to provide a bigger PA than that (with more ooomph), I patch in 
a pair of Mackie SRM450s.
