Peavey XR 1200 Questions

Hello. I am planning to buy a Peavey XR 1200 with PA speakers, got some questions about it.

My purpose of buying a mixing console is to use it in my studio. I am opening a studio where I will host events as well, in form of studio sessions. So I found below console and speakers for sale.

This mixer has a power amp (300W according to my research). In case I want to increase the power of PA, how would I do that? Existing power amp would be an obstacle I believe.

Would I be able to add subs to this setup as it is? Would I need a different power amp, meaning i'd need to detach the power amp from the mixer?

Does anybody have experience with that console? I am initially going for a full analogue thing, and this is the best analogue mixer I could find. Any similar stuff at similar price?

I don't expect anything special from the PA speakers, but just in case, I figure peavey is good with low price PA, does anybody have experience? There is no information given about the speakers but they match the power amp in power and are peavey, so I believe that was sold as a set, couldn't find anything on the internet though.

And finally, the price for all that is around EUR 220, 4 PA speakers + XR 1200 (total 300W). that's a buy, right? I thought that fits my purpose for the time being, later on improvements would be necessary of course. Thanks a lot!

I used one of these for many years, many years ago in a church. It was utterly reliable, and sounded decent. The speakers weren't Peavey, so I have no advice for you on them.

There are plenty of very flexible patching/inserts/power amp input options on the rear.

It would certainly be possible to integrate a sub. You'd need to come out of the mixer to an external crossover, split the sub out and return the rest of the signal to the inbuilt power amps.

download the manual and look at the rear panel, you should be able to figure it out from there.
