Default Playing live gigs with my new Acoustic Amp... I need help :s

Hey everyone!

Recently bought myself a Fishman Loudbox Artist and a Shure SM58 to go with it.

I've played live plenty of times before, but this is going to be the first time I'm on my own in making it sound good...

And, well.... Im completely lost

Low, Mid, High..... Whenever I go online to read about it, all I can find are people talking about frequencies and to turn it down this and that many Hz etc... But my amp says nothing about that. It has a knob, and no indication whatsoever about what "number" it is or anything. All I have are my ears, and I'm just finding it very difficult to get it sounding right.

It's almost worse with the microphone for singing. I have absolutely no idea what it's supposed to be at.

Worst part is, it's probably all dependant on your guitar, and on your playstyle, and on what type of voice you have.

Can you guys lend a hand?

Just for good measure: I play a Norman B20 with an in-guitar K&K pick-up....

Also, how the heck are you supposed to connect it to a PA. My old system was really easy to use so as you can see, i'm very confused by this
Norman B-20 ;-)
