Bose 802/302 System - Advice?

Hi,

I have a set of Bose 802 speakers which kinda belong to my singer. I just replaced the surrounds for him, and used them at a DJ set on Friday, with a mono Peavey powered mixer.

Having never used them for anything but vocals before, the fact this amp wasn't stereo never got noticed. However now I perceive its a problem and want to upgrade, not only the amp, but to add a set of the 302 bass bins as well.

So I took a look at the crossover/controller box. It says the input from your mixing source feeds into it, then you get 4 outputs to the 2 302s, and 2 802s, L & R each. These go to amps, then speakers, its called Biamplified mode.

So does this mean I need a 4-channel power amp to go with it. In which case, can anybody recommend one?

I already have a mixing desk, so I don't need the mixer section of the Peavey anyway, right?

Thanks in advance,

Jamie

I recommend 2 stereo power amps instead of a 4 channel. That way you can maximise your flexibility and probably more likely to get a good deal on used stuff. The sub amp should be higher power than the 802s. I use a 250w/ch for my cabs and a 400w/ch for my subs (or something like that). Got it all used.
