With one mixer (dfx12) and 4 speakers from alesis and a audiophile sound card how do I connect it all together ? I have all the other equipment, the only thing I wonder about is how do I use all 4 speakers and connect them ? I have a power amp too. Does the amp help at all ?

Either way, you need a speaker splitter type thing (I forget the real name, it's like a patchbay for speakers), your can get up to four pairs hooked up to a single stereo amp with one at Radio Shack for about $100 that will take up to 100 watts or something like that.

And that patchbay you are talking about would it connect to the mixers output and then the speakers would go to itself ? I really need help with this, need to figure it out asap. thank you, ljdin355
