My fraternity has about $2000 to put towards a new sound system. We've done quite a bit of research but none of us have much sound experience so any help would be appreciated.
Our main focus will be our basement dance floor. The space is close to 1000 square feet and will need to be loud. We were looking at mounting 4 800W 12" Behringer's in the corners of the room at $143 a piece. First of all, do we have to put these all pretty close to each other or can they be placed in different parts of the room?
Second, would we benefit much from stepping up to 1000W 15" Behringers at $197 a piece? Or do you have any other suggestions
As for a sub for the basement we were looking at an 1800W 18" Behringer B1800X PRO for $380
What amp and mixing board would you suggest getting for this setup?
Now for the main floor the area is about the same but the ceilings are taller. However, we don’t need quite the same quality as the basement – basically just enough to get by. So we thought getting 2 Peavey PV 215 (2x15") for $300 a piece would work.
What amp would you suggest using for this setup if we wanted to include the Behringer sub with the two Peaveys during tailgates and other events?
This is probably a dumb question but would it be possible/worth it to try to wire the speakers in the basement and the main floor and how would we want to set that up with the amps and what not? It’s not necessary at all but would be cool.
Thanks for your help
