Speccing a sports day PA system
I have been asked to spec up equipment to use for a decent sports day event. Using our current equipment as a guide, which is inadequate, I've come to the conclusion that we need 6 speakers and the amp + some method of plugging a single wireless mic in and changing the volume.
We currently already have 4x Yamaha S15e unpowered PA speakers (8Ohm, Power handling being 125W/250W/500W (noise, program, peak), so ideally we would like 2 more speakers of the same size and power. I've had a look and the Yamaha AX15 seems to fit the bill with them being 8Ohm 200W/400W/800W (slightly higher power handling, but I don't see that as a huge issue).
Now, I need suggestions on how to connect all 6 to the amp(s) and what amp would people recommend. Traditionally we've only ever used 2 speakers with a shure PA amp/mixer.
So any suggestions or clues as to what I should be buying?
