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 new 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!

The QX5A is designed to function as both a powered near field monitor and as a three channel mixer/monitor with an external output to send to a QX15A or SCx Series powered main speaker for live performances. The QX5A is ideal for the solo performer who wants an all in one mixer/monitor with the ability to connect a larger active main speaker or amplifier for live performances in small to medium size venues.
The new QX Series loudspeakers offer the ultimate in versatility- they are designed to stand alone as a full range sound reinforcement loudspeaker, full range stage monitor, all in one PA system, or as a three-way extended low end system main with our SCx18A subwoofer. Choose between the QX15A 15-inch active 1000W loudspeaker with DSP, Bluetooth™, and built in 3 channel mixer or the passive QX15 15-inch 900W loudspeaker. The QX Series is ideal for club systems, houses of worship, DJs, auditoriums, band PA, solo performers, and as a satellite extension of an existing sound system. QX Series loudspeakers are available now and ready to ship.
