    If you run this without an amp, you wont get a lot of sound out of them.

    If you want to go minimal then a controller (i.e. with mixer) and a set of actives would be the most logical option. If I have read your comment right and you want a mixer that also has audio out then something like this would do (although its only 250 watts): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/LM40...846907773.html

    Tricky. If you could give us a bit more of your reasoning and aims, that might help. The big problem is finding a mixer with enough power to drive those cabs to good effect. The old Studiomasters are well regarded, whereas the Behringers don't seem to have the same output. Trouble is, they're fairly big old beasts,and don't really fit the tag " minimal ".

    I believe he means using a powered mixer (ie mixer and amp combined) to power his cabs rather than a separate amplifier. Pretty much in the same way I did for many, many years!

    Whilst StudioMasters were good, apart from the one I bought new which had a fault and burnt out one output channel on it's first and only outing!, I kind of disagree with your opinion of Berry powered mixers, from my experience at least. Well, at least the one I used to use to power two EV sx300's more than adequately! I think it was one of the EuroPower PMP range but it was when I was doing walk-ins, so it wasn't mine, and it was all flightcased to perfection. Whilst it was fairly big and heavy, it was still smaller and lighter than the G-742 workhorse that I had modified and used for years! The other thing about the Berry is that I used it for karaoke and, although it didn't have huge power on the mic channels, it did seem to help my voice sound better that the SMs. Maybe I just found it easier to tweak to get my desired sound, I don't know, but I did prefer it for the karaoke nights.

    Yep, I have posted a picture & link to such a mixer under my post? Cant find a lot out there really, that Ali Express one is the best thing I could find. Something with a class D Amp would be ideal as they manage to fit them into tiny little 8 inch things that defy physics! My little box pro 8 is so loud! He is best off selling the Peaveys and going for Yamaha DBR's or something?
