Ok so I have these PA speakers: Pair Powered Speaker | Powered 12" Speaker | Powered 12" PA Speaker | Powered 12" DJ Speaker | Powered Pro Audio Speaker | Active Speaker
Don't bash 'em till you try 'em! They're good speakers, nice quality, and a local company.
My problem and question is this: I have these two powered speakers and they have a peak or limit LED on them. I have cranked up the volume relatively high, until the LED starts flashing.
Now at a close distance they are pretty loud and sound great, but not as loud as you would expect 2 mains should be.
I am considering adding a sub-woofer into my setup. I have been told you will give your mains more headroom and that will allow them to reach a higher level before peaking. So will a sub give me more room to boost the speakers and not hit the limit light?
And to top of the discussion. I don't have any experience in setting up a PA system with a sub-woofer. These are all powered speakers, including the sub. How does this setup work? Do I connect the subwoofer to the mains by the output on the mains? DO i need a crossover to get the effect I am looking for?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. You sound guys and PA extraordinaires...
