I feel dumb

Hey guys. I am semi new to the live sound thing and i have a question that i think is rather novice. Right now i have two 15" speakers and two 18" subs running out of my board (along with my monitors). I'm trying to add two 10" speakers to compliment the 15"'s but the 15's only have one input on them and i don't know how to connect my 10's because all the speaker outs on my board are taken. Any help you can offer would be appreciated. Thank you very much.

Personally, I'd not use the 15's in this case.

The 15's and 18's are sort of redundant...hopefully, the tens have horns in them as well...cross it over at about 200 hz or so and send the ultra lows to the 18's and take the load of the highpaks. The 10' highpaks will handle the midrange better than the 15's...especially if crossed over and the lows are given to the 18's, which are made for handling those frequencies.

I agree with DB. 15" and 18" drivers are very simular. 18's will go a few db lower than the 15's. It just depends on the size room your working with. The larger the surface area of the driver, the larger the SPL in the room. I do have a few questions for you. 1.) What console do you have? 2.) What amps do you have? 3.) Are you using a crossover? 4.) What top boxes are you using? I am just a little confused as to why you want to add the 10's into your system? Give us a little more information, and all of us would be glad to help out anyway we can.
