  • Yet another Monitoring Question...Sorry!

    Hey everyone, still kinda new here, and yes been lurking for a while, and well aquainted with the Search Function. I just recently Purchased a (Purple) V-concert Kit, and KD-120. These are great, and I am very pleased with them,I am currently playing in a Prince Tribute band (so the purple couldnt be better) and also an Original Art rock/reggae project. I am Looking for a good monitoring setup, which will also be versatile enough to use as a dedicated Drum P.A. for smaller venues. I'm Looking to spend around $1000.00 (a little less would be great)and I do realize this isnt really a lot for a good set-up.

    Thinking about the following:
    (2) Behringer Ultrawave B300 Two-Way Active Loudspeaker (can get both for $700.00)
    One of my bestfriends works at a local music store, and although they dont carry them in stock, he can get them for me at his cost like $350.00/piece... Here is a link from musiciansfriend.com just for reference: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/...ltrawave+B300+ So has anyone tried these out? Seems like they should work out fine, any thoughts or suggestions?

    MX1604A Eurorack Compact Mixer which I can get a really great deal on, and I do like the Behringer mixers for the money and yes, I realize it isnt a mackie but only ($150.00)

    So this setup can be mine for about $850.00 which is under my budget, and I think will work out well.

    So if anyone could post there thoughts (yet again, I know how many times this topic has been rehashed) on this particular setup, I would be very thankful and appreciative!

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Also, This system, would run around 600 watts, do think think this would be ok for a stand alone V-drums system for smaller bars/clubs (around 300 people capacity)???

    Thanks again for your time and Help! Been playing the drums for a while, However, this is the first e-kit I have owned which I would actually like to use for live applications (owned an e-kit back in the early 90's a D4 w/Kat pads which was solely for home use.)

    So again, sorry for asking the same redundant questions!

    Thank you very much for your time and patience in this matter,

      I use the Roland PM-3 monitor system and it is plenty loud for me.
      If you think about the monitor being used to hear yourself while you play.
      Total watts is 200. Enough to hear yourself well without going deaf.
