My band is looking at migrating from our current all analog mackie/crown mixing/amp 200# rolling rack setup to a stagescape system. Given the expense, we're looking at doing it in pieces. I've read all I can find and have now distilled the following questions:
1. I use an HD500/DT50 setup for my guitar. Right now we either take the XLR out from the HD500 or the speaker XLR from the DT50 to the board. I assume that would continue with the M20D?
2. If we start with just an M20D and then use the analog outs to drive our current amps/speakers, does the feedback suppression still work? i.e., does that run in the M20D, the Lxx speakers or both?
3. Any issues with then adding speakers connected via L6 LInk over time in the mixed mode configuration? i.e., start with subs, then add mains, then add monitors, so that we eventually leave the 200 pound rolling rack behind (or at least keep it a lot emptier -- with just the m20d in it)?
Thanks for any thoughts or experiences along this line....
