Let’s face it: the majority of gigging musicians take PA systems for granted. Most music venues provide a PA, and all you need to do is show up, set up your gear, and get ready to rock.
So what happens when you play at a venue that doesn’t have a PA, and asks you to bring your own? This happens a lot with venues that aren’t usually venues and are doing one-off shows, as well as house parties or impromptu outdoor gigs. Before you panic, realize that choosing the right PA, whether you’re going to buy it or rent it, is fairly simple.
Here’s what you need to consider:
Carvin Audio’s QXSYS15A is a 2000-watt, active loudspeaker system with Bluetooth that utilizes two 15” speakers that weigh only 42 pounds each!
Don’t forget that if you’re using an active speaker system, there is a power amplifier built in and most active systems feature multiple inputs such as the QX Series and SCx Series loudspeakers. If you opt for passive speakers, you’ll need to provide a separate power amplifier and mixer. If space is at a premium, you’ll want to opt for active speakers.
So there you have it- next time you’re asked to bring your own PA, don’t freak out and cancel the gig!

From fixing harsh vocal notes to taming boomy notes on a guitar, dynamic EQ can be a lifesaver when traditional EQ, compressors, or even multiband compression falls short.
