Hi everyone,

Ok, so I have two passive 350watt (rms) 4 ohm impedance (700watt program power) Peavy XT series speakers. the problem is our PA is close to death. I was wondering what size PA I will need to power them sufficiently without blowing them out?

sorry, im new at this and could really do with a hand.

I'd recommend going to a Peavey dealer and discussing or checking Peavey's website. They're going to know what Peavey recommends for those speakers. They may recommend an over-powered amp, but just not run it full out to provide best results.

As far as brands go, in addition to Peavey, Mackie and Crown have pretty good reputations
