    You probably do want the sub. I've been to house parties without them, and it's a huge difference.

    Alright, but it's a lot over my budget, so I'll just stick with the Mackie system

    I wouldn't get the mackies... and I own a 12 inch thump.

    It limits way to early, It's loud enough in an empty room but fill the room with people and you wont have enough volume.

    And last week something went wrong with mine after owning it a few months. I was not even pushing it.

    It's not worth it in the end.

    If money is an issue, pick up the RCF's and then grab a sub later. I think that's a better choice than the Mackies.

    What sub would go well with the RCF ART 312A?

    Well I found alot of people recommending the RCF subs but they are a bit pricey ($1200 US).

    I would probably look at the Yorkville NX720S or Yorkville LS720P, both seem to be highly recommended or maybe the EV ELX118P. Those seem to be recommended for under $1000 US price point.

    For around the price of the RCF the QSC KW118 and the JBL PRX618S-XLF also garner high praise. So does the Yorkville LS801P gets props too but its super heavy at about 130 Pounds!

    I would try and find a second had set of NEXO PS15s with their associated 18" subs and amp rack and cabling etc.

    Any plastic speakers like the Mackie 450s and RCF equivalent etc sound shit but they are the BEST thing if you want to make money by renting them at 50 a day each to other people who are doing parties or acoustic guitar / vocals etc.
