Dual-usage mixing/performance speakers
I am in a bit of a pickle. My drummer moved away, and my guitarist is basically useless. My band is left with the two creative members - me, the primary composer, schooled engineer, and singer/pianist/synth guy, and the other one, my writing partner/back-up vocalist/bassist/also records the guitar parts.
While we are looking for new non-useless members (difficult in tiny PEI) we still want to play shows, and I am in the midst of recording/producing our first "album".
So my question is this: Can anyone name some relatively cheap, but highly effective powered monitors that could be used both for my mixing, and for being live drum/guitar machine speakers? Basically they would be playing the guitar and drum tracks from the recordings I've made. Loudly.
Second question: Is this a stupid idea?
I need some decent monitors either way, but I would like to try to kill 2 birds with one enormous boulder. Recommendations?
