Which Speakers to complement a 1000w warrior amp?


Recommended Posts

>

1000W IS 2X500W, so you have a choice, you need at least a 400w speaker, but the only limit is your pocket.

.....but what do I know ?

There is so much choice in the 300 - 400 Watt range...

 

 

How big do you want them..

 

plastic or wood ?

 

what do you have already that they need to blend in with ??

 

Whats the realistic budget ?

Well looking for a set that will cover most functions i get ie weddings, corporate events, karaoke etc...

 

At present I have a pair of mcgregor 300w rms blue carpted speakers which are okay but not brill think of trying to sell them to fund new speakers possible.

and also a set of small 125w rms speakers which get used for small pub karaoke gigs. ( with a smaller amp obviously)

 

Cant really give budget price at mo as got to save penny's so trying to work out what i need to save up too if that makes sense.

I would think about trying to borrow an active sub (eg a Mackie SWA1501)

to go with your existing amp and the McGregor's - you plug the amp into the

high-pass output from the sub and the difference will be pretty amazing.

 

I use this with a similar speaker/amp combination. The McGregor's are

generally very good unless you want to spend quite a bit more.

 

Cheers, Chris.

Your Warrior amp is probably 2 x 500w @ 4ohms too which means its realistically only giving 300w @ 8ohms maximum. You may not be getting everything that you can out of a 300w-400w speaker and if you try to go louder you may well end up clipping your amp causing driver failure where a 500w amp was safely within limits.

 

It doesn't matter which order you connect the speakers if you're paralleling them, the amp will just see a single load of the combined impedance of the 2 boxes. e.g. 2 8ohm cabs will be a 4ohm load. The power it puts out will hit each cab evenly.
