    Hello. I have a Technics SBL-51 Linear Phase Speaker System

    Impedence 8 ohms
    Input Power 75W music
    50W din
    Crossover Frequency 3500 hz.
    8000 hz
    Output Sound
    Pressure Level 92 db/W(at 10m)


    And I am looking for a powered mixer with 5 XLR inputs.

    What kind of wattage should the mixer have for my speakers?

    Is this mixer recommended?

    Have you tried a guitarcenter store? They might be able to suggest something.

    Those speakers are going to be no way near enough to handle something like that, especially the high frequency drivers (tweeters). Really, if you want to do any sort of PA system, you need to look at it seriously.

    PA systems are professional, and you can't cut corners when it comes to pro-audio without causing issues...

    Rats, so my speakers are junk. Okay, I'll have to start shopping around for speakers. Any you would recommend? I don't care about size. just cheap and good.

    I'd recommend Mackie when on a budget to be honest.

    A pair of these (for example), along with one of these would do the trick wonderfully.

    Don't use any other mic than the Shure SM58 at that cost.

    PA kit isn't cheap to do. If you do go down the ultra-cheap option (cough Peavey), then it will sound terrible, especially with vocals.
