Hello everyone,

I'm new here. Just wanted to open this discussion up for those who'd like to share insight on the best amp placement for both guitarists and bassist. Our electric instruments are never plugged in the PA (which is an overhead discoball-like speaker) but they can be. Acoustic instruments are always plugged directly into the PA. The only suitable place for drums is on the right-most side, and it can not be placed in center. Worship team is located on the right side of the stage, with guitars and grand piano to the left of the drums. Amps are typically placed directly behind the guitarists and vocalists, which is to the left of the drums as well.

Any suggestions for best amp placement?

Here are a few photos to help you imagine our current (and traditional) setup. Feel free to look around related photos:

Note: None of these photos were wide enough to show drums, keyboards, and pianos, which are located to the right of the people standing.

These speaker/amp combos need to both serve as a monitor for the person playing the instrument as well as for getting the sound out into the audience?  If so, I'd probably prefer it to be beside and slightly behind me.  I'm not sure placement matters that much, just so long as it serves it's intended purpose.

Is this a round room?  How does the room sound?  Do you get a lot of reflected sound or do the panels absorb that?

Yes, it's a round room. There isn't much echoing because of the entirely carpeted floor.
