so i need a setup for playing live gigs in very small rooms to very small groups of people. I'm just running a microphone through a pre-amp (dbx mini-pre) and my sounds have a big dynamic range. treble is most important, but bass capability would be good. i was wondering if it was possible to power a bookshelf speaker with something like this: (pyramid pa105 60 watt microphone PA amplifier w/ 70V output -- i can't link since this is my first post... but i did search!). would something like that work and give me enough sound to work with?

70 volt amps are only helpful for 70 volt speakers. The speakers need some sort of transformer built into them (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constan...speaker_system.)

One option, for you, is a powered monitor. I really like my Yamaha powered monitor, and I have used it with my Roland MC-808 as a monitor.

My powered monitors has XLR, phono plug and RCA connections, and a few inputs along with levels, so it's a very basic mixer.

thanks, michael. i had been searching for "portable amp" when looking for products, but a powered monitor makes sense. i'll look into that.
