Speaker Tripod

How to I amplify turntables?

I have two turntables with a mixer. I don't have any sort of way to amplify the records I'm playing/scratching except hooking it up to my television to practice right now. What should I be looking for? I need something with good bass ( I spin lots of hip hop) and loud enough to play at house parties/small gigs. Any help would be great.

You will need a amplifier (not a home theater amplifier), microphone, speakers an speaker tripods and speaker wire. You can spend a lot of money on speaker wire. Generally thicker is better, but paying for the super fancy oxygen free wire will not make a difference to your audience.

You need the mixer not only to mix the music but to equalize the signal from the turntables. You must plug into the jacks labeled phono.

The microphone goes in the mixer. The mixer goes into the amplifier, the speakers get hooked up to the amplifier. Speakers on tripods are better then speakers on the the floor. You will get better coverage (they will seem louder). A pair of good speakers will give you the bass you want. If you are playing larger spaces you may want a seperate subwoofer.

You want speakers rated above the amplifier wattage to prevent damage.

For small spaces, the size fo a living room, 150watts per channel is OK. For larger spaces you want a bigger amp.

Check craiglist, ebay. You can save on a good used amp. Be careful with used speakers, I would just go with new ones.
