well all my new gear is here and i set up sat evening and rocked it out for about 2 hours in my yard ringing out problems here and there (basically like a kid i was playing) anyway later that night someone called and asked who was playing that loud music, they could hear it across the river. for reference its about 2 miles TO the river then another 1/2 mile where they were at and said they heard everything loud and clear. THATS FREAKIN AWESOME since it had to go through trees two miles down the road through more trees and finally to them.

Anyway this is about speaker processing. I've learned valuable lessons. Buy the amps and speakers to match.. Its as simple as that. If you use behringer speakers use behringer amps, I have yamaha i just bought yamaha amps and the difference is amazing.

The processing built into the amps is designed to complement their speakers. It makes the world of difference.

Just thought i'd give 2 cents.

You are correct that different amps will sound different with different speakers. However, I think you might find that others might say that this amp with that speaker sounds better to them. Otherwise, no one would buy JBLs.

Congrats on waking up the counties on both sides of the river. Call it free advertising.

Good post. Most of my gear is Behringer, and it really sounds quite good to my ears, especially considering the cost. The system works well together with plenty of power and headroom. We are using Peavey mains which I am not so crazy about. They are OK, but I've heard better. This might be heresy, but I've never been a big fan of JBLs. I was in a band we had JBL mains and monitors and I really didn't hear what all the fuss is about. On the other hand, EVs sound awesome to me. I guess it's all in the listener's ear. I am also a big fan of Yamaha, they sound great, Carvin too. I like Mackie speakers as well, very nice.

I really should invest in the Behringer Pro series. They get excellent reviews. Then I would have a fully matched system.

Congrats on the great PA, don't get yourself arrested. :D
