K so in the future (not anytime soon) i plan on buying a PA system for my bands so we don't have to rent equipment so we only have to pay for renting/insurance costs at shows. I was thinking about buying this mixer because i am familiar with it http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/mackie-cfx16-mkii-mixer and i noticed when i was looking for speakers that they were powered or unpowered. Now from what i understand, if i buy a set of speakers that are powered, i don't need to buy a power amp with the mixer, but if i buy unpowered speakers, i have to buy a power amp correct? Also sorry if this is the wrong forum it seems like the best place for this.
