Very true. I was just thinking of my setup where I need to be mixing in a different location, so 2 mixers work better. But you're right- there's no reason why you couldn't do it all on one mixer. My real point was that you'll often need separate level control of each feed, so on a single mixer you may need to use a monitor channel, or just left-right channels to control levels for each feed separately.
That's how ours is setup. We have an auxiliary in that feeds all but the front speakers.
That's very interesting and encouraging, and here I was thinking I had an original idea... I've never seen this in a church installation, but it makes a lot of sense. I'm curious, do you know if your stake had that auxiliary input added as a special request, or has it just always been there?
Where is the input located? Up on the rostrum or back by the amp racks?
I'm a little paranoid since our FM group is very resistant to letting us install anything "non-standard". But if it has been done elsewhere, I might have a good case to make.
