Ok heres the deal, I work in a bar and unfortunatley due to low funds we haven't been able to put together a substantial system yet. Pretty much all the equipment used is mine. The room is roughly about 30' x 30' with 10' ceilings. The sound is so tinny at times it can be deafening. I know that I don't have enough speakers in there to properly set it up but it's all I can do for now. I've tried my best to figure out how to use the DRPA but I just can't seem to comprehend it at times. HEre's my setup: A Pioneer DJM 800 going into the DRPA. After that, two Mackie SRM 450's on one end and 2 Jbl Eon 15p -1 's at the other. The sub is a 4' Peavey speaker that a buddy of mine bought from a flea market a few years back which is powered by a crown amp. Not sure of the model numbers on them but if I need them I'll get em'. Works pretty good but it's not even a sub!!! I've got the two speakers at each end setup for the high's and mid's in a diagonal pattern. Right now I'm using the Rock Venue setting on the rack and everything else is set at default. Is it possible to set this sucka up properly with a mix match sytem like this??? If so please help me out. As I said, the sound can be deafening at times and I find myself constantly fighting with the knobs on the mixer to help it out. Pain in the arse!!! And the last thing I want is anybodies ears ringing at the end of the night if it can be helped. Please HELP!!!

Thanks in advance,

Greg G.

    Please answer these questions.

    Are the speaker's flown (hard to move)?
    Do you have the RTA mic?
    Did you Auto EQ?
    One 4 foot peavey \"sub\"? I assume that is the cabinate size. How many speakers in the cab? What siz are the speakers? Yes, model # if possible and of the amp.
    Sub amp bridged?
    \"Not a sub\"?
    Where is the sub (physically)?
    How do you currently have the DRPA set up? mono, stereo, x-over, EQ, etc...
