My band is looking for a new (or used) PA system that we can bring to shows that don't supply them or that e need our own at. We're trying to find a good one, anywhere from 500-200 Watts (500 is the minimum, we'd like something preferable closer to 1000 ideally.) and we have about $1,000 to spend (or more, depending). (I realize this may be a tall order).

We want to throw mainly just vocals through it, but occasionally an acoustic or two with soundhold pickups also. Any suggesions? Like I said, we're willing to buy used, but if anyone in general can show us some good PA's/brands/deals we'd greatly appreciate it.

Have you checked your local craigslist? Mine seems to be flooded with PA gear most of the time.

It's funny, because mine was until we decided we wanted/needed to buy a PA. But even though we keep checking we're all still in the dark for what brands are good, what models are good, and pretty much what to look for in one. That's what we really need help with.
