Hellos,

I got my speaker today and am pretty pleased with it. (The tweeter fell off from the horn and was rolling around the cab, kinda irritating, construction isnt amazing) I dont have my amp yet, so i just plugged it in from my mixer (L and R 1/4) it sounds alright im not that impressed, but i dont have an amp yet so its not gunna sound very good or loud yet. An amp will fix it right?

Thanks,

Phil

I'm surprized that you got anything at all from it, that is unless you have a preamp/mixer that is also an amp as well.

Yep i have a mixer with it, i was surprised also, pretty happy too cause i was eager to hear it, although it isnt loud. Im running it from comp, to mixer, to cab.

Im not hurting anything by doing so am i?

I doubt that it will hurt anything--just will not provide much volume or sound quality without the amp.

The amp I wanted to get increased in price.... it is now 150 bucks!!! it was 70 the otherday. I contacted them and they wont budge. So right now im screwed, I cant find anything remotely close to what I need for under 70 dollars. I did however find smaller 120 watt models for cheap. Can I somehow combine them for 240 watts? If this possible?

Would a car amp work? I have a mixer so I dont need any volume controls ect. I need a different option soon!

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks,

Phil

Don't forget about the ohms? How many ohms is the speaker? Check the watts rating on the amp to your speakers ohms.

I cant find the ohm rating, but its this speaker... http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/g=home/search/detail/base_pid/609000/

This looks decent, http://www.buyreliant.com/caudio/906.htm I cant find much infor on it though...

Pretty much all I need is some way hook it in between my mixer and speaker to give it enough power to make it sound better and louder. Im a newb and dont know what to look for.

Thanks,

Phil
