Maui 5 as keyboard monitor in a hardrock band ?

I am a keyboarder in a hardrock band and looking for a monitoring solution. I am about to buy a Maui 5 Go but I am not sure if this one has enough power ... versus the Marshall boxes on stage which are used by our two guitar players.
Any experience or opinions ?

To hear yourself? Just use IEM!
For others to hear you? Just use the Vocal reinforcement system?
Is that not enough, get a better PA system

It will not be enough. A high wattage-db level-quality powered speaker or beefy keyboard amp. Then supplement with the monitors. Otherwise IEM's.

I would suggest something like a QSC K8.2. Same price, good bass response, way louder. I use a pair of these in stereo live and they can compete with guitar amps no problem-
