does anybody know where i could get a 8 channel or so mixer for under $300!
mixer. Is it important to have more than two auxes, do they need to be pre/post switchable? Do you need stereo channels? Do you need expansion options, such as FireWire out? Do you need EQ, and if so, do you need two mids? ALl of these things affect the price of the mixer greatly.
In the mean time, you may want to look at the following boards:
Soundcraft Spirit E Series
Soundcraft Spirit M Series
Yamaha EMX88S for $449
Soundcraft GigRac 300 for $360
mixer for the job
stand by my suggestion of the Mackie Onyx line and the Spirit M and E series mixers.
I'm not sure I understand. By powered, do you mean self-powered? (i.e., doesn't need to be plugged in?) Or do you mean that it provides phantom power to its XLR inputs?
phantom power, and to not have to use powered speakers
amplifier for under $300 (at least, a quality one that will last more than a few years). However, you might consider looking at an inexpensive board (see above), and then an inexpensive amp to go along with it.
By the way, just to clarify, phantom power refers to the +48V that many boards offer to power condenser microphones. Phantom power does not refer to the ability of a sound board to power speakers without an amplifier.
mixer from Peavey the PV 14
Yamaha 16/4 for $20 less, and got the same exact features. I own one, and like it.
Peavey, especially a monster of a desk that predates me by 5 years. In my estimation it will more than pay for itself in the long term.
