Frequently Asked Questions...

This is my PA, what do you think about that?

Well, is my first time with PA's environment. So here is how does it looks like. I have 1 CS 800X peavey Amplifier, 1 Mixer peavey PV6, 1 Equalizer peavey PV215EQ,, 1 pair of speakers Peavey PV 115.
How do i connect all this stuff, everything is new, except for the CS800x.
Should i start to connect all instruments(guitar, bass, CD Player, microphone etc) to the mixer, then the out signal goes trought the EQ, then next step is to send signal to the amplifier, and finally speakers. All your recommendations, comments, opinions, and suggestions are very welcomed, cauze am all ears.
Thanks in advance, and best regards.
Have a nice day!!

Interesting setup. You must really like the sound of Peavey equipment. Anyway, to answer your question, typically you plug all the instruments and microphones into any effects processors first unless the mixer has an effects loop connection built into it like the Alesis mixers do. Then, you plug the effects processor into one of the line in ports on the mixer (unless again, you have an effects loop connection built in the mixer). (NOTE: anytime you connect a powered device to an amp or mixer, you need to check the specification on the I/O ports being connectsd to ensure that you will not damage the equipment with the connection. The mixer should have more than one output. The main output goes to the power amp and the power amp connects directly to the speakers. Additional outputs on the mixer can be used to record or monitor the output. Hope that answers your question.

I also hope you have checked the power amplifier to speaker connections and have made sure that the speaker specification are being met by the amplifier. Just because everything is made by Peavey is no guarantee that the amplifier you have is the correct amp for the external speakers. If you know it is, then there is no concern there.

I play the guitar, bass and keyboard and I wanted a live setup that would handle all three instruments so, for sound quality and for economic reasons, I now have a power-amp (or PA) setup for my live as well as studio sound. I found it difficult to find the highest quality of everything from one manufacturer however so, I ended up with BOSS effects processors for the guitar and bass an Alesis Multimix 16-channel mixer with effects built in, a BOSS VE-20 vocal performer for the lead microphone, a 500 watt QSC GX5 stereo power amp which had the perfect specifications to match up with my choice of speaker cabinets which were JBL JRX115 cabinets. The speakers are of primary importance to your live sound and in my opinion, after listening to a lot of speakers, I don't think you can beat the JBLs for sound quality. Even when I play metal with overdrive and distortion pouring out of the BOSS effects processors, those JBLs sound pretty awesome.

Since you are also connecting a bass to your PA set up, I might also mention to you that it is doubtful that the speakers you have will produce a high quality bass sound. Not because they are Peaveys (my JBLs can't cut it either). Most speakers found in bass amplifiers are woofers, NOT subwoofers and the bass guitar has many notes that really belong in the subwoofer range (20 Hz to 200 Hz) especially if it is a 5-string bass. So what I had to do was use one of the secondary output ports from the mixer to a pair of 400 watt JBL ES250P powered subwoofers that provide me with a low frequency response of 25 Hz. Most woofers (including my JBLs) only deliver around a 50 Hz frequency response and that is just not low enough for a high quality bass sound. So, you might want to check the frequency response of your speakers and know that the 5-string bass requires a response well below 30 Hz and the 4-string bass requires a frequency response below the 41.2 Hz of the low E string especially if you are drop tuning your bass. In that case, you will definately want to invest in a pair of powered subwoofers. Once you add subwoofers to your configuration, amazing things will happen. Bass players in your audience will come up to you and ask what kind of bass amplifier you have and what you are doing to get that totally awesome bass sound. No, I'm not kidding, it happens to us all the time. Subwoofers will make a huge difference in your live sound.
