I will probably be buying a pair of P.A. speakers in the near future. I'm needing recommendations for 12" powered speakers, 800-1000 watts. A typical room would be a library performance room holding 150-200 people. We run vocals and all instruments except bass through the P.A. Thanks in advance. Jim

Yamaha Dbr12's or 15's If you plan on running the bass direct at anypoint. But otherwise You'd be fine with the 12's. I both use them and sell them. Great rock solid no nonsense speakers. I know you're in NY... but if you have any questions on them or would like to purchase them. give me a call!

My little bluegrass band went with a Peavy Escort 6000 about 5 years ago. This little system is 600 wats of power and has been absolutely bullet proof thus far. We have played small to medium venues and even a couple of outdoor venues and have never been lacking sound reinforcement. If you consider the Escort, trash the tiny speaker stand that come with it and invest in a pair of better stands. The best part is that this little powerful system breaks down and transforms into something about the size of a set of golf clubs. It is quite possible to get our entire stage set into the trunk of my car. I know this doesn't say much about what you were asking but I thought I might give you another train of thought.
