I Want to have my own drum monitor for rehearsals and shows. I only want kick drum coming out of it. Will a simple self powered wedge do the trick? Do some specialize in low-end punch? Or should i consider a sub? A sub intrigues me as it could also fill the room (slightly) with my kicks while also giving me the monitor affect i am looking for.
I am thinking kick mic into a Y cable - one end for FOH, the other for my mixer where i have in ears, a click, and an out for the monitor.
I'd be more concerned with getting the attack from the note if you're wanting to lock into it. Any self powered wedge would work, however I'd just ask the sound guy to bus the kick to a line out on the stage to save on any real possible ground loops.
