The problem you have to deal with is the fact that your mics a probably out in front of the PA speakers. How high is your roof. i.e. how far above the audience did you place the mics? Did you face the mics away from the PA speakers. There is not really anyway to get a totally clean sound from the audience, however with the correct placement of the mics it will minimize the spill from the PA. Is your PA a center cluster or a left and right stack? Without knowing what sort of mics you purchased and where you placed them in relation to the PA and Audience, it's hard to say what will work best but if you can try and get the mics as close to the people as possible. Lets say you have a 20ft ceiling you could have a metal rod coming down to about 10 ft, with the mics mounted on that, facing away from the speakers

Frank made a noble effort, but what you REALLY need is to find a local audio professional to come to your location and SET YOUR SYSTEM UP PROPERLY.

It would probably take less than a day of work.
Then you'd have everything properly placed and adjusted.

This will make your life... and your recordings... MUCH EASIER.
