UK Which amp?

Hi guys, newbie here so be gentle!

I play thru a VOX Tonelab LE at home using a small practice amp and I want to start gigging so I need amplification. I want to play in stereo, so I'm considering a couple of Fender Frontman 25R's or a couple of 100w active PA speakers. I don't need reverb or a dirty channel as I don't want the amp to colour the sound from the LE, just make it louder!

Would 2 Fenders be loud enough for pub gigs? Two active PA speakers would double for vocals.

Any advice would be most welcome.

Thanks

Those aren't really gigging quality amps. It's also really hard to make a stereo set up work live. Only audience members who are directly in the middle of the two speakers will get a good experience. You'd be better off getting a small, clean tube amp and miking it up.

If you're using the LE to its full extent with amp models and everything, I believe (at least this is how it is on the EX and SE) there's a function it just lining out. Get 2 PA speakers.

To be quite honest, the Frontman series isn't that great.
You're making it awfully complicated on yourself by relying on the LE, you'll get results much easier if you just get a cheap-and-cheerful tube amp and mic it up.
However, if you insist, I believe you can plug the LE into a PA speaker.
