Would this http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Phonic-DMX1501-1500-Watt-Power-Amplifier?sku=482415 and this http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Behringer-Xenyx-2222FX?sku=631273 and some decent PA speakers be a fairly good setup for small shows. Most of the venues my band plays have their own PA's but we are looking to setup a couple of small shows on our own and were looking to get a small PA system. We play metal btw and I'm also open to any suggestions on mixers and speakers. Trying not to spend too much though. We would probably only be running drums, vocals, and maybe bass through it.

^He is. The Phonic.

For a budget that's not bad. Depending on the venue size you may need a bigger amp. The mixer is hit and miss, I have the smaller version and it's done well, some people have had them crap out on them.

Just make sure to get speakers that can handle that wattage as well.

It's gonna be for small shows like 100-200 people. What about something like this maybe? http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-2000-WATT-2-CHANNEL-PRO-DJ-RACK-AMPLIFIER-POWER-AMP_W0QQitemZ350080847643QQihZ022QQcategoryZ23787QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
Could you recommend some speakers and also what kind of watts are they gonna need to be able to handle if I was running a 1000-2000 watt power amp through them. Sry I'm a noob when it comes to this stuff.

Edit - Also would it be better to just buy a powered mixer like this maybe and skip the power amp? http://cgi.ebay.com/1200-Watt-10-Ch-Band-PA-System-Powered-Mixer-Effects_W0QQitemZ110271405637QQihZ001QQcategoryZ23785QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

I'd say for gigs that small 1500 probably would be enough, if you plan on expanding, it might be worth going for the higher wattage one.

Basically the speaker needs to be able to handle the wattage of the amp, otherwise they'll blow. So if you get the 1500 watt amp, and run them as seperate channels, depending on the ohms setting you use, each speaker will need to be able to handle 750 watts.

Alright. Btw that is peak watts right? Would these do pretty good? http://www.guitarcenter.com/Peavey-PV-215-Dual-15--2-Way-Speaker-Cabinet-104005137-i1152988.gc
