PA & Mixer Specs

Our house PA is a Harbinger M200-BT. You can view the specs here.
FX are limited to an "echo" which is reverb but not the best reverb in the world. If you require more FX, we recommend bringing your own mixer or board, which we will daisy chain into the house mixer. The house mixer is basically always required as it powers the speakers.

There is a 1/4" and 1/8" line-in AUX and bluetooth connection available on Channel 5/6 for running backing tracks.
