first time posting. I have an old JVC player, model: MX-V508T. It has two unit, a CD/AMP/DECK TUNER UNIT and a Speaker unit. The CD/AMP/DECK TUNER UNIT is getting beyond repair. So, I want to dispose it and use the speakers for group practicing and starting a home studio for recording. My intended inputs for practice/rehearsal include synthesizer keyboard, a bass, 1-2 guitars, acoustic and/or electric, and 1-3 vocals. I intend to get a 8/10 channel analog mixer with USB interface which will be able to serve both practice and recording.
Question 1: Are the speakers suitable substitutes for studio/recording monitor and as full range practice monitors?
Question 2: if applicable, what type amp/preamp is required for connecting the speakers with the mixer output?
