    i have two power amps for my pa which i like just fine, a behringer nx4 for the monitors and a qsc for the mains. both are more expensive than what you are looking at but id recommend both if you want more power

      I have seen some QSC in my price range and Berringer is very affordable.

          Some years ago i was looking at the Behringer and Pyle
          the Pyle just seems so inexpeninexpensively made that i find it unbelievable that it will last any amount of time
          i could be wrong

          Most of the Behringer stuf i have had is another story

          I wouldn't hesitate to purchase the Behringer

                Yeah, I got myself a Crown XLS & that thing is amazing. I'm using it both as a power amp for my home stereo & out into a 4x12 (or pair of them in stereo) with my modelers (using a switcherto switch between home stereo & guitar cabs) ...sounds monstrous.

                    I have been a sound guy for 20+ years and work every day with tour-grade systems ( well sans the pandemic anyway ), but I am always understanding of the need to fit things into a budget. I am lucky enough to work with amplifiers that cost $5,000+ each!!! That being said. If you are on the smallest of budgets, the Behringer NX series is extremely hard to beat. In fact, it performs so well, that it competes with amps that cost significantly more. It is the best budget amp you can get. It has great power density, great features, and performs really well.

                    I would refrain from wasting your time with any Amazon special or Pyle. The numbers on the box are not even close to true. I have seen MANY of the Pyle units burned up simply because they can't do what the nomenclature states and when asked to try, they just fail after a while.

                      thats my issue as well. i have a bunch of unpowered but very good sounding speakers. if i was starting over, sure, powered makes sense but im not spending $5k to replace what i already own.

                        I have a Crown that has been very good to me. If I were looking for a PA I would at least have to give them a look.
                        The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

                          Thank you everyone for the feedback on Pyle's durability they are off the list.

                            check the behringer nx stuff. the one i have might be more than ya need but maybe not. its 4 channels which is why i love it, like 400w @ 8ohms but im usually running each channel at 4 ohms so im getting about 800w. so if i didnt have another amp, i could run my mains (getting 1600w at 2 ohms) off one channel, two monitor mixes, and use the last channel to power the subs. there are dsp models as well if you wanted something more than just power
