any case, your ear is the ultimate judge.
If you choose to add a subwoofer, you will most likely
place it close to the DJ table or perhaps directly
underneath it. In this case, make sure your mixer has a
separate output that you can use so that your
microphone signals do
feed the subwoofer, or at
least lower the Bass control on the microphones. This
will avoid embarrassing feedback and rumbling when
you speak.
Go visit some music stores and actually listen to
different speakers. Bring your own CD with some
songs representative of what you plan to play, and ask
