Headroom and Stage Monitors
OK, I understand why HR is needed in the mains. I know you run 1.5x or more wattage amp to cover the spikes, peaks, and so on.
So what about stage wedges? I run 2 MRX112M's, and 2 JRX100 wedges(JBL). I run them with a bit more power than the continuous rating.... like 50w-100w over, one per side of my amps, all 8 ohm.
Amps are Crown XTi200(MRX's), and an XLS402(JRX). 2 to 3 mixes depending on location.
I could drop to 2 mixes, and bridge both amps to really get some HR, but is it as big a deal?
Mackie ONYX and DBX/Ashly 31's(EQ) and DBX 166xl's round out the system.
Anythoughts on this. Volume is not really an issue, but I'm always wanting to milk every bit I can out of my monitors.
I have 4 vox mics, 2 keys, and and acoustic that go in the Stage mixes BTW.
