    Well, a violin can do 105db, so be careful with those acoustic instruments up higher.

    If you've got the money go for the EV speakers. Behringers (and any low end speakers) start sounding crappy when you push them loud.

    I would go for the EV's I have always liked EV's. The only reason I am not using them myself is I got a good deal on Quest, however they may not be available in the UK as they are an Australian company. I am however using EV subs and my large bass rig is EV.

    I have also used EV recently at a gig, the self powered new series ones, and they sounded great.

    Cheers
    Alan.

    I mean come on, in a 15 20 rehearsal space, and all you're running is vocals?

    It's a classic rock band, not like it's death metal, screamo, or punk vocals.

    If they blow, they're not up to the job.

    I am the LAST person to defend Bellringers! They have made EXACT copies of two of 'our' amplifiers and have bought up companies so they can monopolize certain components but, as you say the speakers were hardly being challenged and there COULD be another problem.

    The Berry monitors, the crassly named 'Truths' do in fact have some support in some quarters and I have never read of any reliability problems with those.
    Their high power PA amplifiers seem to keep going but no. I have NO love for Behringer in general!

    We've opted for a pair of the passive EVs- good deal by UK standards- and we can expand from there if necessary.
    It's a steep learning curve- but we're enjoying it. We even spent a pleasant afternoon together browsing the PMP6000 manual. That's dedication.

    Thanks for your help and advice. Good forum.
    Lend me your ears
