My teenage daughter is a vocalist. She mostly sings with karaoke track (using IPoD) but sometimes with Live Guitar and/or Keyboard.
We are looking to purchase a portable speaker+Amp+mixer for her performances and practices. We need 4 channels (two microphone + one each for guitar and keyboard ).
I am pretty novice in this and looking for help. I know a guitarist who uses his Guitar Amp for vocal as well. I found the sound decent but I am sure it is not the best solution for our requirement.
I know Bose has a speaker system for about $1000 (plus another $500 for the mixer). Though it is high for us , I would go for it if that is the best solution but I think we should be able to get something within $500 range.
I am OK with a separate mixer+Amp and a Speaker or All in One. Must be portable (less than 25 lbs preferably) . Should give a decent quality output for a large living room (about 50 -100 people)
We have a Guitar Center nearby. So I can go there and check out if I get some advice on what to look for.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
