Powered Wedge advise

So i am in the market for a powered wedge that i can connect my POD HD500. Ill be using guitar and bass with it at different times so im looking for something that can handle both sounds relatively well.

My budget is ~$300, new or used doesnt matter. Black friday sales could help seeing as most places have good discounts atm.

I live in Miami, FL

Any wedge that can't handle bass isn't a real wedge. They are supposed to be FR/FR just like a PA bin because they need to be able to cope with the entire mix, even a kick drum.

Good luck on your search. Look for ones with at least a 12" driver and at least a 100W amp. Smaller ones are rarely worth buying.

Carvin PA gear is pretty solid. That looks like a passive wedge though, not a powered one.

powered monitors are a little more expensive cuz they have an amp included. here is a list of powered monitors

The new active yamahas are great but beyond your budget. I wouldn't go for the Peavey, they are let down by the horn drivers I'd happily recommend most peavey stuff but not their PA speakers. Over in the UK the Alto's are very highly rated (Alto SXM112A) great sound for the price not the loudest ever but good enough for most things. JBL are usually pretty good.

For the budget conscious buying new:

Just assume that real wattage spec is 30% of what Behringer says it is. We use these in our rental inventory as both PA and monitors and have had no real issues with them and more importantly, no customer complaints.
