Hello folks, I would like to get your opinion on a new sound system I will soon be purchasing. I'm pretty limited as far as the money I can spend so here are the 2 systems I was thinking about...System A:2x carvin TRX2218's2x carvin TRX2153'sDBX Driverack PA2x behringer nu6000's (lows, mids)1x behringer nu3000 (highs)behringer x32 digital consoleorSystem B:2x Peavey SP2BX's2x Peavey SP218BX'sDBX Driverack PA2x behringer nu6000's (lows, mids)1x behringer nu1000 (highs)behringer x32 digital consoleEssentially the only difference is going to be the speakers. What do you think? Carvin or Peavey?
I don't have a strong opinion on either of the speaker choices you mentioned -- I think the Peavey would probably be peoples' preference around here, but that doesn't mean it's a better choice. The ideal scenario would be a head-to-head comparison, but I don't see how that could happen.If you're not buying a snake, I assume you have some sort of wireless device for controlling the mixer -- mixing from the stage is not optimal.At your scale, I wouldn't bother with tri-amping. That money would be better spent elsewhere, and you can always do it later.Run away from the Driverack PA. The Behringer DCX2496 has proper limiting and better EQ, or buy amps with built-in DSP.I'm assuming you're planning on the extra expenses of mics and stands, cables, DI's, racks, mixer case, etc.? Do you have monitors and monitor amps lined up?Also, have you considered used speakers? You might get a bit more bang for the buck. Used Danley TH-115s seem to be going for around $1200. If you bought a pair of those and some mains more like the SP4 or SP6 used, then you could add another pair of subs later on without changing or adding to your mains.
For specific events, I have two sets of the second (?) generation TRX with neo drivers. For the price, I find them to be a solid performer and wouldn't hestitate to purchase them again. I've never heard the PV's. I would skip the tri-amp thing and spend a bit more money on better amps
But these are just my opinions so take them with a grain of salt and enjoy whatever new system God sends your way.
