Okay, so my band are looking into getting one.... This seems to be the best value I have found, get lots of mics with it too....

However, I just need to know if it would be loud enough, I don't really know how loud watts are with PAs.... it says it is a 200 watt system but the speakers are only 150 watts (RMS).

Will this be loud enough for band practice (plugging vox, backing vox, a trumpet and keyboard), so they can be heard over the drums and guitar amps?

Would it manage small house-party type gigs as well?

If you have a better PA package you think we should get, let me know. Must be a similar price.
