Again we used two full range cabs for the front of house sound system running 1600 watts rms altogether. For monitoring we used two 500 watt wedges with amps to match.

The bands were all good – the judges definitley made the right decision and manic Cardiff band “Sixty” won the heat. We are looking forward to seeing them again in the final.
