You really need to get an amp that has 300 watts per channel and speakers that can handle the power output. The more shows you do, you want to have two or more amps and a mixture of speakers including subs. Even bigger shows more watts and more power handling speakers.

Warnings

  • Don't let there be drinks around your equipment or music.
