I have a BOSS ME70 that I want to bring around and perform with, however if I plug it into the aux in of the small speakers (for wireless mics) in the venue, it easily overdrives (not the pleasant type). I can't seem to turn up the ME70 and get clean sounds.

Is there a small portable speaker that has enough headroom? So that it doesn't overdrives the signal? How many watts will I need?

The ME70 is a guitar effects pedal - its supposed to be plugged into the guitar input of a guitar amplifier - so why don't you get one of those and do the job properly?

Suggest you check out Rolland Cube range for small, light and loud.

You are using the amp modeling on it, right?

I use a 12" powered speaker (harbinger aps12, got mine used for $80) with my g3. The amp models sound better through the powered speaker than through my amp.

Something like the Nady PFW-12+ should work for cheap.

yea, using amp modeling

and I do have amps that I can plug ME70 into, the amp sort of alters the sound (i think), whereas a monitor speaker wont (i think)

I tried plugging ME70 into a tube power amp and it sounds even better, but that's irrelevant with my original question

I'm looking for a cheap light-weight speaker that works with ME70's phone out, and wondering if you guys have any suggestions, (so that i don't have to spend USD$10 to buy one for experiment lol)

I think your problem may be precisely that.

Just use the normal output to connect it to PA systems/speakers -- don't use the headphone out.

Connect to a powered speaker via the amp output (L/mono), not the rec/phones out (stereo). Powered speakers, like the samson auro or mackie, are light and easy to lug around.
