my snare is a ludwig supra 400 6.5x14 and tuned lower.
For clarification, that would make your snare drum a 402, not 400.

yeah it is but most drummers i'v come across call the 6.5 a 400. the 5x14 is the 400. if i were to call it a 402 they probably wouldnt know what i was talking about. kinda like when my friend bought a chevy 396 that was said to be a 396 when later on he discovered it was really a 402. he didnt get snared into buying it either.

As usual, those guys posting those first few responses are giving good advice.

You have a high quality, well powered bar rig that's good for a couple hundred people.

I know a lot of bands who would be very happy with that system, and very happy playing to a couple hundred people.

I like a nice kick drum sound as much as the next guy, but I find that there is more to sound reinforcement than kick drum.
Thats about what I was intending it for is a bar/club rig for a couple hundred.Anything else we play that is larger(openers etc..)usually has sound companys hired.
My intent was basically a quality sounding "plug and play" system(and small 12 can light show)that could be used without needing a 220V distro as lots of club owners seem to not want an unlicensed electrician walking towards there service entrance with jumper cable clamps. :o
Ultimatly I'd like another set of 18's and pair of tops and more amps for larger gigs with more power.But thats for future tax checks and arguements with the wife over gear.lol

The iPhone App "EstiGig" is made for just such calculations.    When I put your data in, it gives me the following results:

327.4  People if they are aged 24 or  younger.
275.8  People if they are over age 24.

This assumes speakers are placed 2' above the listener's heads.
What if you have 327 people at a 25th birthday party. ;D

Im with the gig estimator app referenced above and would say 300ish indoors who arent looking to have their socks knocked off.  This is enough PA for a party of 20 doing a dubstep show ;)
