so i am looking for something to run vocals through, either a cheap (but good) P.A. System or some sort of amplifer with a tweeter in order to get the higher frequencys, what should i take into consideration when buy either an amp (witha a tweeter) or a cheap P.A System.

Do you guys have any models to recommend?

any way of micin' vocals that has worked out well for any of you in the past?

i've mic'd through acoustic guitar amps, and bass amps, mainly because nobody can afford anything to really run our vocalist through. the down side of being a highschooler.

def a pa...look at behringer stuff, i got a powered amp from them and its worked great...search for some pa packages too and post a few here, for opinions

pa systems arent very cheap but you kind of need it for vocals, and a good mic that blocks feedback is a necessity otherwise you'll never be able to get the mic loud enough

No.
PA System: Good idea,
Behringer PA System: Bad idea.

phonic pa systems have been getting really good reviews.

haven't tried one yet, but at that price, and with a good return policy, you've got little to lose.

i have some experience with them.
there are perfect for a beginning band!!! the old board is still in use on occasion for other things, even though the rest of the system has been overhauled many times over.

how much would a decent pa for a starting band cost? maybe one of these phonic ones...do they come in packages that come with the pa, powerspeakers and all the stuff needed to run vocals?

I've got a 30 year old TOA PA, does the job for vocals. Even has a cassette player

They're discontinued though

they come with everything. there are a lot of models. the number at the end of each model tells it's speaker size. 10, 12 or 15.
there are also different watts and features.
