what's the difference between dj speakers and power amps vs. live sound speakers and power amps?
I need to know what the difference is between the 2 types of technology when it comes to live sound band music. I had found a GLI Pro PVX9000 10,000 watt power amp DJ rack amp, thought this what we wanted to be able to support the sound wattage and improve the sound quality when we perform live in bars our type of music is old school rock, metal & heavy metal, but after talking to a bar owner who runs sound himself stated DJ equipment is unable to be used, why?
Angel - DJ and live sound equipment are not much different. I am a DJ and live sound guy and I use the same equipment for both. DJ amps and speakers can be used for live sound. A DJ mixer cannot be used for live sound (not enough mic inputs). The bar owner is partly right.
I would NOT recommend the GLI Pro amp though. There is a lot of cheaply made sound equipment that is marketed to DJ's that is pure junk. If you need a cheap power amp that is really well made:
I own three of these and they are super reliable and the sound is great!
